Reality T.V. Where Is The Love?

American Idol, Fear Factor, Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, Brat Camp, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Joe Millionaire, and Survivor just to name a few. Any way you look at it, reality television is the next big thing in t.v. programming. As most people do, I sometimes find it hard to resist some of these programs. So, I ask myself why. Is it because I can watch an average person like me become famous? Win money? Get married? Is this why it appeals to the regular primetime viewer, because we all would like to see the underdog win? Or, are we all secretly enjoying watching the less fortunate get bounced out in a bundle of tears blaming the whole thing on somebody else? Honestly ask yourself which one it is. If your not sure, see which one creates a bigger buzz around the office. Why is it we get so involved with people we will never know, but won't even talk to our neighbors?
