It is easier for people to notice how the current technology has affected the nature of programs that are aired on television. Reality TV show has become a questionable and a bigger talk to the people as compared to its intentions of entertaining people. Reality TV show is a type of TV programming which documents apparently improvised everyday circumstances, and frequently exhibits an otherwise unidentified group of people who are normally nonprofessional actors, though in certain
In this day and age, there are many genres of television programs that people enjoy watching. Among the many genres is reality television. According to Nabi 2007; Ouellete & Murray 2004 cited in Bagdasarov et at. (2010 p. 301), reality television are programs that depict people carrying out their daily activities and interacting with one another which range from subgenres such as matchmaking reality programs like ‘Joe Millionaire’ to reality sitcoms such as ‘The Osbournes’ and documentaries with soap opera elements like ‘The Real World’. The variety and number of reality television programs has been increasing rapidly over the years.
Television can be an influential tool for educating young people about the duties and hazards of sexual behavior. Sexuality is frequent major plot features of many TV shows aimed at youth. As broadcast networks have been associated with cable channels, doubtful language and sexual references have become more and more common. Most parents do not usually talk to their kids about sex and relationships, birth control and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and most schools do not give education about sex, so kids get much of their information about sex from television. The problem is that kids are probably not learning what their parents expect them to learn about sex from television.
Crime Scene Investigation has become very popular on television. In the article “The CSI Effect” by Richard Willing, the author talks about how much criminal investigation television shows effect people. He explains how they have affected the way jurors are selected because of the evidence people expect to see. People tend to expect more evidence, when convicting someone, because of what they watch on television. “Prosecutors also have complaints: They say the shows can make it more difficult for them to win convictions in the large majority of cases in which scientific evidence is irrelevant or absent” (Willing, 30).
Is the media having as positive of an effect as we believe? I believe that the media has a negative effect on our society.The media shows a lot of reality tv which shows a lot of adult stuff that teens watch and think that they need to have fun like people on reality tv shows.There are also certain food commercials that have to objectify men and women to catch the viewer's eye and see how the person on tv is enjoying their food.There are also video games that teach violence and robbery to their players.Our media is not having much more negatives that humans see more often than positives. There are many popular tv shows but the most eye catching and popular have to be reality tv shows.These shows are more of a show that is not scripted and real people are actually filmed.They are privileged adults who seem as if they were told to start a fight every episode and every reunion is a massive fight and then everyone is mad at eachother and the very next day is another party.Then a surprise comes and for a minute everyone is at peace and as soon as they walk towards the door someone says something and there is another issue that needs to be resolved.The famous reality tv does not have a positive effect that will be remembered as all they are remembered
For example, in one of the first empirical investigations of the psychological appeal of Reality programs, Nabi, Biely, Morgan, and Stitt (2003) found voyeurism to be a significant predictor of Reality television consumption. 15 However, findings from a later study suggested that although voyeuristic appeal might be a factor that distinguishes between fictional and Reality programming, voyeurism was not a consistent predictor of the enjoyment of Reality programs (Nabi & Stitt, 2006) Papacharissi & Mendelson (2007) found out that only a small subset of television viewers watch Reality programming to fulfil their voyeuristic needs. Such inconsistencies in the findings with respect to the voyeuristic appeal of Reality programs may, at least partly, be due to a lack of an agreed upon conceptualisation and, hence, operationalisation of voyeurism as a common psychological orientation. A related component of the conceptual disagreement regarding the voyeuristic appeal of Reality programs pertains to the difficulty of separating common voyeurism as a scopophiliac interest from social curiosity (i.e., the drive to learn about
It is my hope that I can pass on to individuals how this sort of programming interferes with the normal lives of kids. Clearly this may not influence each child, yet it does influence a certain rate. I understand that there is a lot amount of research that has been performed here (violence in mass media and the effects on kids) however I 'm more intrigued by particular areas, for example, children’s programming rather than movies or news programs. Introduction In today 's reality, youngsters are always watching television of the fact that it has now become a part of their lifestyle. TV is basically an alternate variable in the development phases of a kid 's life and he/she may encounter things he/she sees uniquely in contrast to other kids.

The winner of the contestant will get a chance to meet Sunny leone or get a gift from the programe head. The questions are releted to the content shown on the programme.
Reality TV as a type of television programming has grown over the years and it is rapidly spreading in terms of real people living out selected portions of their lives while being videotaped for broadcast. It has become an addiction of some sort for many of their viewers especially youth and female segment of the society. According to Hall (2009), reality programs are now a part of television programing. Many people watch reality shows for several reasons, Reiss and Wiltz (2004) discovered that an element of reality programs appeal is that they help viewers to feel important because seeing ordinary people on the shows allows them to fantasize that they could gain celebrity status by being on television.
Television is a positive tool for education and development. It can educate children about other cultures and the ways of life. However, excessive television viewing may be harmful to youth development. People in the very beginning as television first began to get popular around the world, some people were afraid that they maybe somehow get brain damaged by rays which emanated from the television while it was operating. But that was not the only reason why people were afraid of television.
