The History of Reality TV In America

Nowadays, more and more television networks are abandoning traditional, scripted television programs and airing unscripted reality shows. Reality shows are cheaper to produce, popular with audiences, and easier to make. When you put real, attention-seeking men and women on TV, almost anything can happen, and reality shows have provided some of the craziest, funniest, and most controversial moments in TV history. The viewers can't seem to get enough of the drama. Everyone knows reality TV isn't always 100% real, but it's entertaining enough that most viewers don't care.
