1.  Reality TV Reality television is a kind of television genre which claims to present unscripted, dramatic or humorous situations, show actual events, and features ordinary people rather than professional actors. Although this kind of TV show has existed in some way since the early years of television, the current explosion of popularity dates from around 2000. Critics say that the term "reality television" is a misnomer and that such shows frequently portray a modified and pre-planned form of reality, with participants put in exotic locations or abnormal situations and often coached how to act or react. Often the actions and responses of participants are edited to appear a certain way in the post-production phase. Part of reality television's appeal is due to its ability to place ordinary people in extraordinary situations. For example, on the ABC show, The Bachelor, an eligible male dates a dozen women simultaneously, travelling on extraordinary dates to scenic locations. Reality television also has the potential to turn its participants into national celebrities. Shows such as American Idol have launched the careers of many amateur singers. Whatever your opinion of this kind of TV genre, it seems that it is not going to disappear. In fact, each year more and more of them appear on TV because they are popular and cheaper to produce than other kinds of TV shows such as dramas or sitcoms.
