Are reality shows getting carried away?
They keep making new shows and some of them are ridiculous. Do you think they are getting carried away trying to find the next popular one?
I think these types of shows are cheaper to produce and for whatever reason, people tune into that garbage. I've always hated "reality" shows, because they too are scripted.
I think it's like the proverbial trainwreck, people watch because you can't help but look. Of course, this means they have to keep getting more ridiculous to keep people looking. I miss the days where there was more good TV. The bright side is I got rid of cable, have streaming Netflix and I am much more productive lol.
Absolutely! Here in Australia, TV is on a steep downward quality curve, at least in my opinion. There are too many "reality" shows, which are not really reality. If they were, why would people have to audition for them?
Drama and mystery shows are better, and even they are not as good as they used to be. Unfortunately, they seem to be making more and more reality programs. There's even a lawsuit going on here, with one channel claiming another copied their format for a cooking show. Just how many formats are there for cooking shows?
Less reality shows, and more documentaries and drama for me.

Do you think reality shows are on the way out?So many reality shows were popular for so long, but it seems that some of them, such as American Idol, are losing ratings. Some remain strong, such as Survivor and the Bachelor/Bachelorette. The new ideas seem lame, such as the new one about celebrities...

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)?
