The Reality of Reality Television

    In the article Reality Television by Mia Consalvo talks about the diffrent types of reality television shows such as crime and cop, shock shows, game shows, the parodies, and a diverse genre. She gives a brief summary on what reality television means in her perspective. She also shows the positive side of reality television. Consalvo states:
    Reality television shows are a loose genre of thematic shows and one-time episodes that have one unifying
    basis: they rely, in some fashion, on real, true, or unscripted events.(295)
This article fits into my essay because it shows what reality television is and why broadcasters like it so much. It also shows the diffrent types of reality television. And these can be used to suppoort my claim.
