Reality TV is a genre of television programming that shows unscripted, real-life situations. There are different types of reality TV shows. One type features cameras following a family or group of people around on their day-to-day lives, like the Real Housewives or Little People, Big World. Then there are the competition reality TV shows, like Dancing with the Stars and The Voice.
Reality TV seemed to get its start in the early 1990s with MTV’s Real World, but it really took off and became more mainstream in the late 1990s and early 2000s with the success of Survivor, American Idol, The Osbournes, and Big Brother. Now reality TV is a fixture on television and should be around for a long time, as the production costs are very low and fans of reality TV keep tuning in.
