Why are we, as a society, drawn to reality television programming? I believe it is morbid curiosity. The viewers want to see these people mess up. I can’t stand watching average, ordinary people getting in front of a national television audience and making a complete fool of themselves for fifteen minutes of fame, or a small amount of money. Its not entertaining or informative; its a sad ‘reality’ that americans have reduced themselves to tuning into complete garbage on the television so they can catch a glimpse of someone completely screwing up.
