This week talk about Reality TV. How it started, who made it famous, and our guilty pleasures.
With over 700 unscripted shows on television as of last year, reality TV is bigger than ever and there are no signs of it slowing down. But why tho? In this episode Tom talks about his childhood love of COPS and shows how it success across multiple broadcasters intrigued multiple generations of viewers. Kate Talks about the old guards of reality television of the 2000s and how Survivor put the genre of television on the map. And finally Adrian takes us to the Jersey Shore where he gets his GTL on and explains that even if you hated the show, you know what that acronym means.
