You people who constantly moan about reality television

You know it's been around since TV was invented, right? Prime-time game shows, Candid Camera, An American Family, news magazines, blooper shows, home-video shows, Real People, That's Incredible, those Battle of the Network Stars shows. That stuff has always been cheaper to make than scripted shows, and has always been around. Today there is much more reality TV, but there is much more TV overall. Now there are dozens and dozens of cable channels with original content (whereas not that long ago it was limited to the networks). A lot of it is reality TV, but there's also stuff like Mad Men and Louis filling in the gaps.
