Are reality shows freak shows?
Reality television is a genre of television programming which presents purportedly unscripted dramatic or humorous situations, documents actual events, and usually features ordinary people instead of professional actors. Although the genre has existed in some form or another since the early years of television, the term reality television is most commonly used to describe programs of this genre produced since 2000. Documentaries and nonfictional programming such as news and sports shows are usually not classified as reality shows. Reality television covers a wide range of programming formats, from game or quiz shows which resemble the frantic, often demeaning shows produced in Japan in the 1980s and 1990s (such as Gaki no tsukai), to surveillance- or voyeurism-focused productions such as Big Brother. Such shows frequently portray a modified and highly influenced form of reality, with participants put in exotic locations or abnormal situations, sometimes coached to act in certain ways by off-screen handlers, and with events on screen sometimes manipulated through editing and other post-production techniques. not freak shows

Most do, yes. But all are manipulated to create a more dramatic presentation for viewers. Every resulting episode needs multiple stories. The same principles of storytelling you learned (or should have learned) in school apply to how they are edited. Here are a few ways: -- Contestants and particip…ants are screened for their psychology/personality and their physical health. Smart casting agents can pre determine the kind of interpersonal drama that will happen by who they choose. Anyone on a show is there for a specific reason. -- The situation they are in is of course contrived, and planned out way in advance to create dramatic/funny situations. Usually the situations for every episode are planned out before any cameras start rolling. -- The vast majority of shows do NOT give participants scripts. (Shows like The Hills are an exception.) However, producers do sometimes give participants topics to talk about. For example, if they are talking about the news of the particular day when they are being recorded, that can't be used in the show, because the shows usually don't air for many months after they are taped. Producers would simply ask them to talk about what is happening right now, or to discuss what they expect in the next event they will participate in. -- Participants are almost always manipulated in interviews to give concise answers, dramatic answers, or in some cases to say things the way producers want them to say it. Interviews work great for this since they can be sliced up into small phrases and put anywhere in the story by the editors. Sometimes editors even use "Franken-bites", which are the audio of individual words or parts of words and edited completely out of context to make it sound like someone said something they didn't. If you can't see the person saying the words, be more suspicious. If you listen carefully, you can usually hear the tone of voice change in the middle of sentences, which is a dead giveaway. -- And of course the biggest way stories are manipulated/created is in editing. Most shows record 20 - 50 times more footage than they actually use. So producers and editors can comb through hours of footage to pull together moments to create a 2 minute scene, which may or may not give the complete story of what was happening. But of course no one would sit there and watch an hour of boring conversation, when a couple of juicy minutes gets the job done! All that said, the majority of stories in reality shows are essentially true. They're just extremely condensed and edited to make them more dramatic! Two other points: -- Reality participants sign long contracts that prevents them from discussing these details with a penalty of millions of dollars. -- Any show where the contestants are competing for money or prizes are restricted by federal law from manipulating who wins, or giving them unreasonable advantages. Technically they are game shows and fall under strict 50 year old laws to prevent producers fixing the results. All that said, there are some cases where producers think it necessary to direct participants what to do in a situation so they can make it more interesting in the show. Think of this as a patch. Shows that try to rely on fakery too much don't last. Fake drama just is not as good. The bottom line is that real life is usually boring. Reality shows create or find interesting situations and extensively edit the footage to make something we like to watch! ( Full Answer )
It depends if you're counting season run or airing run because [asof February 2018] FOX's & now Spike's COPS debuted in 1989 & has aired 30 seasons [so far], but MTV's The Real World debuted later in 1992 but has aired 32seasons [so far], however HGTV's House Hunters is thechampion when it… comes to 'longest running reality show' in seasoncount but there doesn't seem to be a consensus on exactlyhow many seasons of the show exist. HGTV.com says there are 159 seasons, while tvguide.com & TIVOprogram guide says 140 seasons. Naturally of course, despite thehigh number of seasons, the show has only been on the air since1999.

First of all, you need the main character, or main characters. Then, you will need to make an intresting things to happen to him. I for expample, am currently filming a reality show, that features my friend stuck inside a sofa. Next, you will need a plot. I know, this is a reality show, but i don't …mean that kind of plot. Is your reality show about surviving, or just for fun? If its from survival, you should come up with a place that your main character cant leave, like an island, or a cave. If you're making something funny, its whole differend. To make reality shows like this really funny, you must use volunteers, or better yet: complete strangers. Ever heard of "scare tactics" or "Takeshi's castle"? These are the funny reality shows. Now, after you've dicited what kind of reality show are you going to make, you will have to mess up his or their lives for good! Make them either suffer, or enjoy. But mostly, reality shows are about suffering. My reality show is now on the second season, in witch my friend is again trapped in the same sofa. He will have to stay there, until he can claim the ultimate price. He will also have to collect, build, and trade legos. Now, you will only need camera. ( Full Answer )

The degree to which reality television shows have spread through across broadcast and cable channels leaves little doubt that our children are likely to come across multiple examples of this type of programming --- even those with casual viewing habits. Any cultural phenomenon tends to become widely… known, but not all raise the same questions of potential impact that reality shows do. Examining what is already known about reality shows and their influence on children can help parents make informed decisions about how to handle the issue in their own home. What is Reality TV? Reality television consists of programs which purport to showcase people appearing as themselves in a variety of different contexts. Many reality programs revolve around competitions; others feature celebrities in their everyday lives. There are also shows that center on small groups of otherwise unknown people, probing their interactions with one another. Whatever form they take, reality shows seek to create entertainment from the uncertainty of unscripted moments and events. They also look to present shocking, awkward or otherwise inflammatory situations --- a consistent characteristic of most reality programming. . Children as Viewers Children who view reality programs have been shown to suffer ill effects from the content of such programming. One Australian study revealed that children who watched reality programming were significantly more likely to associate wealth, popularity and beauty as factors that contribute to happiness. It's no surprise that these are values frequently held in high esteem by many participants of reality shows. What's more, certain other reality programs such as "Fear Factor" that feature participants involved in disgusting or dangerous behavior inspired attempts to duplicate these acts by some younger viewers. Children as Participants Although not all reality programming involves underage participants, some do. These have also been shown to have a negative impact on the children involved. An environment in which kids find themselves surrounded by cameras much of the time has the tendency to make the challenges of growing up that much more difficult. Additionally, when competitive reality shows incorporate children, there is an added pressure and sense of rejection when things don't work out. The Canadian newspaper "The Globe and Mail" reported in 2009 on a program called "The Next Star," which focused on kids under 15, placing some contestants in embarrassing situations and leveling criticism (albeit constructive) at them on national television. The MTV Experience Much of the programming offered on the MTV family of networks as of 2010 falls into the reality category. These shows are specifically geared toward younger viewers. Due to the target audience, kids are more likely to hear or see these shows referenced during interactions with their peers, increasing the likelihood that they'll watch. Inadvertently, these shows can present young viewers with role models. Given that kids are less capable of distinguishing decidedly undesirable behavior unless it's specifically placed in that context, the offerings from MTV have the potential to set a standard for teens in this area whether they intend to or not. Combating the Influence Needless to say, focusing on limiting the exposure your kids have to television is a good start to prevent reality TV from "taking over" in your house. Additionally, psychologists Brent Ludwig recommends that you focus upon the fact that reality shows are decidedly not reality. That stipulation goes a long way toward setting boundaries of behavior. Moreover, Ludwig suggests on the Genesis Health System website, it's important that you or your children don't become passive recipients of the shows' messages. He feels it's crucial to identify the values presented by each show and discuss those in depth with your kids to maintain a balanced view of what's important. . References .

Reality television covers a broad range of shows, everything from DIY home improvement, talent competitions, historical reenactments, to shows about the real lives of the participants.

No, neither in the real sense of the word nor in the way television networks use it. It is an entertainment spectacle.
There's a few. You got Platinum House with Dru Hill, you got Celebrity Big Brother UK......
No, but they seem like it at times ^ Most can be considered "fake". Much of the supposed antagonism and many of the feuds are scripted. The final presentations are heavily edited and show only the material that the producers choose to include. Ratings factor heavily in the outcomes.
Freakshow translates as MonstrositÃ¤tenschau but you would really use it to describe someone in German. You could say Du bist ein Freak - you're a freak.
any reality show really ^ Reality shows like soaps are all mostly scripted but presented in a way to look real.
