It’s the silliest idea of all the naked TV shows, but it’s so awkward to watch.5.
In this genre there are three major categories of shows: game shows, dating shows, and talent shows.
The scope of reality television has increased steadily over the last couple of years, with shows like the “Bachelor” gaining millions views.
And in doing so, these kinds of shows fit the definition of reality television.
“Reality TV is the genre of programming in which the everyday routines of “real life” people (as opposed to fictional characters played by actors) are followed closely by the cameras”(Frisby).
More than just set the stage for what reality television was to look like or even encompass, “An American Family” also helped reveal what the viewer truly wants—drama!
When you question why it is we watch the shows we do it isn’t for the social commentary—if there is any—it’s the drama that keeps us engaged.All we know is that shows like “The Bachelor” and “The Flavor of Love” are sometimes the fluff pieces we need to watch after a really long and tiring day.More than just provide enough comic relief to keep us fixated on the screen, these shows “promise more drama, suspense, and laughter while pushing the envelope of what is morally and socially acceptable, funny, and, of course entertaining” ., a competition show about artists who use nude people as their canvases.This may seem like a new trend, but there have actually been plenty of shows that require their participants to be in the buff.The real distinction between this and its American counterparts is that, due to the Netherlands’ lax TV restrictions, the entire program is uncensored.3.
