Rejecting “Reality”?

There are signs that “reality” TV is losing its appeal with American audiences. “Inspired by the success of such blue-chip franchises as Survivor and American Idol, the networks have increasingly loaded up on unscripted knockoffs as cheap prime-time alternatives. With quantity comes failure. It becomes a combination of mediocre shows or shows that are so similar to other shows, they don’t stick.”
