Reality TV/Why We Watch

Number of Pages 5

A 5 page research paper that discusses the appeal of reality TV. Three dating shows are profiled, ElimiDATE, Next and Flavor of Love. The writer argues these shows are, first of all, gossip carried to a new level, but also a means for viewers to make social comparisons that assess the courtship norms of society. Also, the writer argues that the norm portrayed by such programming is not working as the rules for dating in contemporary society are both muddled and too intense. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
