Reality TV shows that depict familes and people in their daily routines, vacations, workplaces, homes etc.

Same thing as Train wreck TV. Some families self-destruct for millions of people to watch. The Goselins (on Jon and Kate Plus Eight) and all their recent problems, for example. Families become famous, dysfunctional celebrities before our very eyes and ears.
Frank: My wife likes watching Jon and Kate Plus Eight and Wife Swap. But I can't stand those TV shows. It's like the people's lives are in a fishbowl.

Fred: My wife likes those shows too. I leave the room when she starts watching. There's way too much voyeurism on reality television shows these days. That's all those programs are, Fish bowl TV.

In conversation, the dual flexing of the index and middle finger of both hands, to signify the presence of scare quotes. Used ad nauseam by 'pretentious' and ostensibly 'intelligent' university students, to advertise their 'superior morals' and 'erudition'.
Using air quotes in this example is, like, so 'post-modern'.

I want to get off the phone now because I hate talking to you, but I'll pretend that I'm being polite by letting you go back to whatever boring crap you would be doing if you weren't talking to me.

Them: Oh, uh, yeah. Bye.
