The type of TV show that presents unfortunate mishaps, accidents and disasters as entertainment. Tragedy + entertainment= tragitainment.
TV shows such as 'What Went Wrong?', 'When Weather Goes Bad', 'Pet Rescue', 'Air Crash Investigation'. And so on. Tragitainment tells the tragic tale of boy swept away by flood, airshow crash spectators incinerated, NASCAR driver baked to crisp in horror smash etc.
