Why are reality TV shows so popular? It seems everyone hates them in general, but has one show they just can’t stop watching. Which one is yours? If you don’t watch any, which of the ones you’ve heard about do you think you’d be most likely to watch? What’s your theory about why this form dominates so much of modern TV?
I don’t watch them, I think they are stupid. Life is hard enough without watching other people with problems. Maybe other people watch them because they want to watch people with bigger problems than theirs, I don’t know. I do not understand the success of so-called reality shows. I also think they promote meanness because you know the producers of the shows want drama and encourage conflict and negative interaction. Kids watch that and they think that is the proper way to act, that “in your face” stuff, and it’s not.
On a more positive note, I will be on the road again starting tomorrow, so at least there will be somewhat interesting posts this coming week! It’s the last road trip for the summer riding season. Where did the time go?
