Reality television is a genre of television programming that documents supposedly unscripted real-life situations, and often features an otherwise unknown cast of individuals who are typically not professional actors, although in some shows celebrities may participate.
The irony of ‘Reality Shows’ is that even though they are known as ‘Reality Based Shows’; most of them are ‘Unreal’. The idea of placing people in situations, just to see how they react, became imaginable and almost ‘Passé’. As such, previous projections of human behaviour do not hold that much ground as compared to the ones that are being churned out with all the melodrama and unexpected spoofs or stunts.
Real Life on day to day basis is not as much Dramatic and entertaining as is depicted in these shows.
Reality Shows are also referred as ‘Reality Television’.The genre covers a wide range of programming formats, from game or quiz shows which resemble the frantic, often demeaning shows produced in Japan in the 1980s and 1990s (such as Gaki no tsukai), to surveillance- or voyeurism-focused productions such as Big Brother.and are sometimes coached to act in specific scripted ways by off-screen "story editors" or "segment producers," with the portrayal of events and speech manipulated and contrived to create an illusion of reality through editing and other post-production techniques.Programs in the reality television genre are commonly called reality shows and often are produced in series.Documentaries and nonfictional programming such as news and sports shows are usually not classified as reality shows.The situations created or occurred are altered in order to make things interesting.
