Abstract: This article focuses on a peculiar phenomenon in Korean television—revelations of production activities in reality shows. For example, the revelation regarding production of the popular television show Two Days and One Night (1bak 2il) is closely connected with reality television. In general, reality shows bring about reality with the appearance of ordinary people, but Korean reality shows cannot do that for various reasons. Korean producers often replace the reality of ordinary people with production reality through bloopers, intended revelations, and appearances as regular guests. These kinds of revelations utilizing production activities and production staff are efficient replacements for ordinary people. They portray historical reality in the workplace and provide authenticity. This choice for revelation is a conservative one, as it closes the door for ordinary people to achieve the fifteen minutes of fame. However, stylistic decisions amidst rising competition, flexibilization of broadcasting labor, and technological developments in Korean broadcasting seem inevitable.

Abstract: Whether it is the fabricated situations, exotic and/or isolated settings, or written scripts that encourage participants to “act” in a certain way, “reality” in reality television has always been a misnomer. Reality television’s authenticity or realism has been questioned since the beginning of the renaissance of reality television that was sparked by the popularity of Survivor in the summer of 2000. The contrivance of reality television became highly noted when various reality television shows that parody the conventions of reality television began to emerge, such as The Schmo Show, My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance, and Straight Eye for the Queer Guy. Using hoaxes, false premises, or exaggerated characterizations based on stereotypes (which can be referred to as hyperstereotypes) these parodies highlight the contrivance of reality television and question its claim for authenticity. In the midst of these reality television parodies are two television animated series that shed light on the artificiality of reality television using the anti-realist mode of animation: Comedy Central’s Drawn Together (US, 2004-2008) and Teletoon’s Total Drama Island (Canada, 2007-2008). In this paper I examine how through genre mixing these two animated series parody the conventions of reality television and highlight reality television’s conceitedness through animated exaggeration and humor, problematizing the notion of “reality” in reality television.

Abstract: Cultivation theory highlights the connection between an audience’s TV viewing and their perceptions of social reality. The purpose of this study was to better understand the relationship between college-aged women’s exposure to reality television and their attitudes toward personal appearance, perceptions of the prevalence of cosmetic surgery, and their willingness to undergo cosmetic surgery. Additionally, the study examined how overall media use (TV, music, magazines) combined with attitudes toward personal appearance and life satisfaction to predict perceptions of the prevalence of cosmetic surgery. Two kinds of reality television were examined: situational (e.g. Jersey Shore) and competition (e.g. American Idol). Results of an online survey involving 231 college females suggested that compared to “light viewers of situational reality TV, “heavy viewers” perceived cosmetic surgery to be more prevalent and were more willing to engage in cosmetic surgery. However, there were no differences in the attitudes toward cosmetic surgery between heavy and light viewers of competition reality TV. Additionally, when reality TV exposure was examined along with other media exposure measures, as well as cosmetic attitudes and behavioral measures, media exposure predicted perceptions of cosmetic surgery. However, in this broader context, media exposure was not a predictor of willingness to engage in cosmetic surgery whereas life satisfaction and personal cosmetic behavior were.

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.

Abstract: The rapid explosion of reality television has created a vacuum of scholarly research on a form of media that has quickly permeated the current cultural landscape. Specifically, the idea that through the use of ‘non-actors’ and unscripted premises, we can garner some ideas of the basic structure of society is both controversial and appealing. Though the basic premise of entertainment television is that this type of program is nothing more than diversion, the fact remains that these types of programs are organized to attract audiences for either personal satisfaction or financial profit (Turow 1991: 165). Ouellette and Murray contend that reality TV is “an unabashedly commercial genre united less by aesthetic rules or certainties than by the fusion of popular entertainment with a self-conscious claim to the discourse for the real” (2004:2). The proliferation of reality TV also points to changes taking place in the industrial context of labor unrest, changing technologies, and other financial considerations. The emphasis of reality programming on audience interaction and commercial orientation makes the meanings and representations shown to viewers a significant aspect of this genre. These facts in conjunction with the pervasiveness of reality TV, makes an understanding of this medium incredibly important. The current research seeks to examine the factors that make this genre worthy of study and what studying reality TV can tell us about society including race, ethnicity, and race and ethnic relations.
