Abstract:

Amidst a deluge of celebrities parading their personal lives before the cameras to raise their own celebrity status or resurrect dwindling careers, a host of stars have elected to invite cameras into their homes in order to put forth reality sitcoms centered on the presentation of strong family morals and simple parenting lessons. Reality sitcoms have become the next generation of domestic sitcoms by adhering to generic sitcom conventions and consciously using family values as its foundation. Of these reality sitcoms, two iconic musicians, Joseph “Reverend” Simmons of Run-DMC and Gene Simmons from KISS, have used their respective cable shows as a pulpit to preach – often through humor – a return to paterfamilias and the importance of family love and loyalty, even for the most unconventional families. Despite different parenting styles and attitudes, both reality TV dads are the Ward Cleavers of a new generation.
