Critics Cringe: Reality TV Shows thrive

Reality TV Shows thrive once again for the upcoming 2019 fall season. The wailing you hear in the background are TV critics, who still believe the shows will fail. Yes, even after all these years the naysayers are still going strong.

Reality TV shows

Reality TV shows aren't just a thing of the past. Apparently they are going strong for the future too. Live as we know it proudly displayed on the small screen will continue. Fans are loving it too.

Reality TV shows have always had extremely vocal critics

If you remember back five years ago. Or maybe longer. There were people who deemed themselves as authorities and declared the Reality TV show a fad. Many folks went farther and suggested that writers of TV sitcoms would be out of jobs as these shows took over the world for a short time.

Those same callers of doom are still screaming from the mountains. It's almost funny how they critics who I hear today are the same as those who once complained. The more I think about it, the more I believe they just were po'ed they didn't get to be in front of the camera and are looking for attention.

Survival of Reality TV shows

Thankfully everyone survived the Reality TV call of death to the small screen and life on the television is doing well. Plus those reality stars are still going strong. So is scripted TV too. Just in case you were wondering.

Critics of the genre must be gasping at the horror of more new shows right now. The new 2019 Fall lineups are starting to be announced. It appears a few new reality TV shows are in the works, a few are being let go and more are being mulled over. Yes, that's right Reality TV is here to stay.

You know what made me think of all this Reality TV craze? The excitement of possibly getting a reality TV show. No, I've not been offered anything, but someone I know has. Everyone is excited for the possibilities that could open up in her future. The impact it could have and the offers it could bring. Of course, she needs to sign on the dotted line and make it happen. Yet, if she doesn't someone else will as Reality TV is alive. The audience is just one remote away from finding out what happens next.
