Reality TV

Have you had enough reality TV lately? Have you become a survivor yet or perhaps you're a bachelor or bachelorette, or maybe you have some talent - or no talent. It doesn't seem to matter - viewers will flock to watch. We're in the era of reality TV. We're finished with the game shows: Millionnaire, Weakest Link - most have been relegated to daytime television. Oh occasionally, in a rating period sombody will roll out Bob Barker and the price is right for a nightime outing, but for the most part now it's been reality TV.

Even the so called news magazines have stretched their formats to reality: 48 hours investigates, Dateline may devote a full hour to something it has turned up and the magazines scrounge for material which will make them competitive with their counterparts.

Reality is for now but don't think for a minute that it's for too long. Soon there'll be another new format that one network of the other will hit upon and everyone will jump on the bandwagon. You'll tire of reality soon but hold on to your clickers, there's another hot new format coming to a channel near you soon.

Hopefully very soon. That's an afterthought.
