Reality TV is just a smart way to make dumb TV without having to hire dumb writers to write dumb stories.
I wouldn't be too sure of that. I've long believed that there is literally no such thing as true "reality" TV. It's as scripted, pre-planned and rigged as any scripted show. How could it not be? All TV is concerned with ratings, and reality doesn't always deliver ratings. So reality TV must
, logically, be rigged.
The only true reality shows are game shows, sports broadcasts (well, ones that aren't pro wrestling anyway) and shows like Cops
and Disorderly Conduct
, which literally just put video cameras in police cars which follow the officers around. That's the only way there can be actual reality TV that isn't scripted and pre-written.
