Feline Reality show
I pretty much have a problem with any "reality show" if the supposed stars know anything about the cameras being present. It then converts to Surreality.
Reality shows are also VERY cheap to produce. No script writing, no high dollar actors to pay.

Gemwolf, I completely agree. This is not about being 'stupid'. Television shows such as Big Brother are popular because it allows us 'normal' people to watch others in difficult situations. Say for example, someone talks behind your back ( a theme fairly popular in BB) we are interested, as humans, in the way the subject recieves and handles the situation and thus we are possibly learning from others subconsciously.
I'm sure many people who insult the genre have often sat in a window watching people pass, watching how they behave in their normal daily routines. It is the SAME thing.
