On the other hand, watching reality shows makes audience depressed because they see some problems on the television and they think that they may face with that problems. Another effect is that reality shows may cause physical illnesses. In order to watch that reality shows, people sit their couch for long hours. A 2014 study published in the International Journal of Cardiology suggests that human aged 2 to 10 for more than two hours a day is 30 percent more likely to be at risk for blood pressure compared to those who spend less time for watching TV.

It states that, “The average child sees 12,000 violent acts on television annually, including many depictions of murder and rape. More than 1000 studies confirm that exposure to heavy doses of television violence increases aggressive behavior, particularly in boys” (“Impact of Media”).

The missing of school will lead to bad academically performance. Television viewing replaces activities that improve school performance such as getting enough sleep.
