Is Reality TV Even That Real?

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:00 am Comments Off

By now most people realize that reality TV is not real. Doesn’t stop people from searching for DIRECTV promos and packages that bring them all these networks producing these shows.

Reality TV is unscripted TV where producers put non-actors in unusual situations. The interest lies in seeing how regular people react and get themselves through. Networks like reality shows because they’re cheap to produce. Viewers like them because they’re more entertaining than poorly-written scripted shows.

The debate started when many reality shows were apparently altering the outcome or putting the fix in. Dave Hester of Storage Wars, a show where people buy storage lockers, accused the producers of planting items in lockers. And the New York Daily News ran a story saying the American Idol final four were picked by the judges, not voters.

But J. Rupert Thompson, producer of Big Brother, points out you could say the programs are scripted because the people are put into unreal situations. It’s still reality, because you never know how people will react. And Lynette Rice of Entertainment Weekly says that not everything on reality TV can be manipulated.

In fact, reality TV story editors do put together storyboards and scripts. But these story editors are not in the writers’ union, so they get paid less. Networks love the savings. In 2000 there were 4 reality shows, and in 2010 there were 320.

So, even though there’s not much real about them, people like them and they’re cheap. So the number of reality shows will probably continue to be unreal.
