Low-brow television, unscripted material from actual people. People may be suffering or under stress.

Also: most reality TV shows characters contain at least a high majority of white people, one token black person, one token asian person, and one token hispanic person.
Big Brother, Survivor, Joe Millionaire, The Littlest Groom, are examples of reality TV.

A truly saddening development of modern media. Programming which lacks any redeeming social, intellectual or moral value but is nonetheless poigniant in a macabre way due to the reflection it offers of a rapidly declining western culture. Primarily watched by mindless, brainwashed Americans who are long since bereft of any intelligent thought or recognizable human values (greed and self-interest notwithstanding).
Reality TV is one of the major reasons I decided to stop watching television entirely. That, and the fact that every news station in the country is owned by a very small number of rich white males who have absolutely no vested interest whatsoever in educating the public, offering useful information, or doing anything other than making more money than any human being could possibly have practical use for over several lifetimes.

possibly the worst advent in television since pro wrestling. Basically an excuse for Fox TV to only have to spend $30,000 dollars on random street folk and a handycam, so they can tape for twelve hours and get ridiculously high ratings, turning a large profit in the process-originated with shows like COPS, and Candid Camera, and eventually degraded itself to shit like "The Simple Life," "Joe Millionare," and most recently and disgustingly, "The Swan"
"Rupert Murdoch is a walking, talking asshole who uses human degradation to add to his pile of blood-money."

About as real as seeing a cat doing my tax papers while whistling Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring" in A-minor.
Reality my ass.

Overhyped, overrated television shows which are in no way, shape, or form, real.
Survivor was the catalyst which has spawned all the crap reality TV show that you now see on nearly every channel on cable and satellite.
