What is the current popularity of reality TV?
In Britain, reality TV became hugely popular for 2000 to 2002, but now seems to be (thankfully) dying out. They don't seem to be offering entertainment because of their content, but the fact that they're on is entertaining. They're a big joke. Graham Norton constantly makes jokes about how boring Big Brother is and I remember his jokes about Fame Academy's low ratings.
There is an old joke: A reality TV show is where a small group of people are wittled down to just one viewer.
