So….I’m sitting in bed one day just browsing through the television stations to find something to watch. I click through the many channels only to say (…boring…..boring….don’t want to watch that….another reality show….too boring…boring another reality show…another reality show). Needless to say, I spent more time flipping stations than I did actually watching TV, then I finally stopped flipping channels when I heard … "bad boys, what cha gonna do, what cha gonna do when they come for you”. Yes! It was the famous show Cops. As I was watching the show, I started thinking, this is also a reality show! It’s amazing to see how many varieties of reality shows there are now! It doesn’t matter what your interest, you can find a reality show! Then, I started wondering…”what was the first reality show ever?” So I started thinking....at fist I thought it would have been The Real World but then I said "no, it's definitely Cops".
Since I wasn't sure I decided to "google it" and to my surprised, it was noted online as being the famous Candid Camera.....I'm not sure if that is correct but I think it's probably the oldest one I can think of....What about you? What so do you think started the Reality TV phenomenon?
