Are reality shows fake?
My friend and I were debating, what's your take?
I'm sure that most, if not all, "reality" showsare carefully edited to create the maximum amount of "drama" and are probably following a loosely scripted format too.
Reality shows? We are certainly inundated with more than we can possibly ever need or want. I'm guessing someone somewhere thought these shows would make for acceptable entertainment. Looks like the concept has gone awry!
Some of them have a little value. Most of them are utter nonsense and garbage, showing all the most negative and unpleasant sides of human beings. Yes, of course they are "scripted," to some degree.
The Dollar sign is powerful motivation. If we're completely honest, we know this is what their main purpose is. This obviously says something not-so-honorable about all of us.
As long as there are Network mongers who produce these shows, people willing to expose their entire lives in public AND that public sits 24/7 in front of the boob tube ......there will be no end to Reality Shows.
The truth is, as we take in the crazy, scripted & useless activities of random strangers.......OUR REAL LIVES are ticking away!! I prefer to be involved in positive, productive issues that improve my life and make the world a better place for all.
Interesting question, Dot.....
Some of them are, survivors is one of them. The people in the show all live in some luxury 5 star hotel, but pretend to life harshly in the wildness, in the show
No, not at all; come on now, no one wants to change the norm or reality to increase viewer ratings do they? "Let's take reality and make it outrageous in order to up our ratings so we can charge our advertisers more money per-unit-time...
Anytime you have to set up cameras, lighting, and re-shoot from various angles lets just say you're going to lose some "spontaneity".
Lastly "show runners" and producers oftentimes make "suggestions" as to what the episodes might entail. Nevertheless sometimes the camera does capture raw emotion. Editing tricks do the rest.
However many people have discovered there is more money to be made by being the "over-the-top" character in the show.
This often leads to "cast members" competing for the spotlight.

How do you feel about reality shows?Since reality shows seem to dominate the airways, would you rather go back to the typical drama/comedy/news show that used to be in fashion? OR, do you love reality shows? If so, which one(s)?

Are most of these reality shows scripted?Because of the last episode Love and Hip Hop everyone has been questioning the actual reality of the stars. Do they really have beef with one another or is it scripted?

Do you think that reality shows are scripted?Exciting twists, overwhelming moments, timely love, controlled hatred and conspiracies. The reality shows has it all like a well scripted story. I often wonder whether these programs are scripted or not. What you think?

Don't you miss all the prime-time sitcoms and drama shows from the 70's, 80's and 90's? What's up with this stinking reality TV show craze that started spinning outta' control right before the turn of the century? They take up 2/3's of prime-time programming. And the profession of the 15 minute...
