Reality Is the New Reality
The reality television genre has "exploded in the last five or six years," David Lyle, president of Fox Reality Channel told critics at Summer TV Press Tour 2008 Friday.
According to Lyle, in 2002 broadcast TV networks introduced 27 reality shows, and 22 reality shows were introduced by cable networks. This year there will be 32 new reality shows on broadcast and 140 on cable.
"Reality is no longer alternative programming. In fact, it is the cornerstone of modern television, like it or not," he said.
In the critics' case, that would be "or not."
