Where Sitcom Meets Reality
It is no surprise that more and more reality television shows are popping up. They have replaced traditional sitcoms, but is the reality television show of today really reality? Years ago, MTV first introduced reality television to viewers with its "Real World" series and this was basically raw television with little editing. Fast forward years later and the reality television show of today is polished and complete with story line as well as somewhat scripted as evidenced by "Keeping Up With The Kardishians", a reality television show produced by Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest is fast becoming the reality television mogul with this hit television show, so much so, that he is producing two more; one which just debuted with Denise Richards entitled "It's Complicated" and another one to be produced for NBC entitled "Mama's Boy", where a single man's mother will choose her son's mate. Nevertheless, these predictable reality shows, many of which can be seen on "E", have become very popular, although rather predictable. They cannot however, rival Bravo's reality television line-up which includes, the very popular, "Top Chef", "Project Runway" and the Housewives series.
