I hate reality TV. He said. Nobody agreed with him, for most americans are morons who will watch anything.

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 TV genre in which you watch over-sexed people complain about each other
Reality TV is not very realistic

A new wave of network and sometimes cable television that features "ordinary" people, and is supposedly unscripted; often competitive with motives to win monetary prizes; notorious for being a waste of time yet addicting to many.

A waste of time. They just make a bunch of crazy, pointless shows with these hillbillies that they find on the side of the road. Or, more likely, find under a rock. The shows consist of rednecks trying useless attempts at catching large fish with their bare hands, trading a sheep for a car, and arguing over a storage box that may or may not have something useful in it. These shows involve sluts sitting on motorcycles for absolutely no reason and terribly-fake staged bar fights.
(Guy 1) Hey did you watch the new episode of Hillbilly Handfishing on the reality TV channel?
(Guy 2) Yes, and I almost died of boredom

(Guy 1) Have you ever watched Storage Wars?
(Guy 2) *runs and hides under bed*
(Guy 1) I'll take that as a no...?

Bringing YouTube to the big screen since 2005. Most reality TV shows are just dignifed YouTube stuff all packed together in a half hour or hour.

Also the sign that America is losing it's creativity and intelligence.
I am watching a reality TV show about little bratty kid. Shit, that is on YouTube all the time.
