Reality TV isn't real at all.

TV has gotten so bad recently that I no longer watch it- besides the occasional Monk rerun. Even that anime has gone downhill. ("Back when I was your age, our Gundam cartoons had real plotlines, not just pretty boys singing and crying! And we watched shows with real ninja characters- Rurouni Kenshin- instead of this NAY-RU-TO crap. You kids get out of my yard!!")

I miss Early Edition, Martial Law, and the GOOD foriegn cartoons TV used to play... But at least the documentaries are still good, when one can catch them. //end of the complaint no one cares about

That's a great poll. Interesting how many more people like "story based" and it just seems like there are so many reality shows on, and new ones all the time.

I'm more of a Britcom fan. For the most part, I prefer shows like Pulling, The Inbetweeners and The IT Crowd over reality TV. Never been much of a fan of reality TV.

I do not care for reality shows because they are so fake, such as the Kadashians, or however you spell their name and housewives of what ever city. The talent shows such as American Idol I watch sometimes but I prefer and good movie instead. I also do like to curl up with a good book to read on my nook. I take it everywhere I go.

It depends—if "reality shows" means documentaries, "Antiques Roadshow," "History Detectives," "Who Do You Think You Are?"—then I like them equally well with story-based television.

If "reality shows" mean "Survivor", "Fear Factor", "The Bachelor"—ain't nobody got time for that trash!

I've never seen any reality tv that had anything to do with reality, or that required intelligence---there are so many of these mind-numbing shows clogging the airways, I thought perhaps I was in the minority! It renews my faith in people to see that I am not the only one who finds these things absolutely asinine.

My idea of a "Survivor" show is trying to survive in the ghettos of Chicago, New York, Los Angeles or Detroit. It's time to exchange the exotic islands for the mean streets to see how they would really survive in real life. Some folks who aren't streetwise, would do anything to get themselves voted out of the 'hood before they could get hurt. Now that's a real "Survivor" series, but the idiot CBS executives would never go for it because it'd be a huge financial risk, in case something happens to the contestants, and the families sue the network. CBS should give it a real "reality" chance on ghetto life.

Of the two choices, I have no preference. There are some "reality" shows that I like, and some story shows that I like. Now, if football was a choice, I would have chosen that hands down. :-)

I hate reality shows! They are stupid! I don't care who wins a singing or dancing contest.How about giving an option for educational based shows where you can learn something! Needless to say I don't watch too much TV beyond the news. Reading is more entertaining than TV shows.
TimCanterbury30

They do educational programs all the time if you ever bothered to watch your TV more than one time a month. Doesn't Howard Hughes Medical Institute give out science lectures DVDs for free through their own website? Doesn't Dan Rather do investigative journalism on AXS TV? Doesn't CNN put their news on Demand for an entire month? While I don't care much for reality based TV shows or Dancing with the Stars I don't feel the need to judge people's taste in pop culture and chastise like you do. Your behavior reeks of a holier than thou moralizer.

Not enough choices! What I watch more than anything else would be documentaries. Story-based shows really comes in second. And as for reality shows, NOT AT ALL! Reality shows first of all do not live up to their name. They are so far from reality in actuality, and are just plan dumb; clearly designed for the lowest common denominator of society. Reality shows are the biggest waste of time anyone has ever conceived of in all of human history.

Those are the only 2 choices? How do you categorize news? Game shows? Wildlife documentaries? Movies that are based on true stories? I like all of this TV quite a bit, but do NOT like the so-called "reality" shows such as what has cropped up over the past decade, such as The Apprentice, The Bachelor, etc etc.

Well the question was of the two which do you prefer, not what is your favorite type of tv! If you don't like either then you can choose no preference! I also love documentaries, especially those that focus on true crime or medical topics!

The only "reality" show I like is Duck Dynasty! That is because it is not about a bunch people getting drunk or doing dangerous stuff or making a fool of themselves. It shows a family loving one another and spending time together! ANd they remind me a little of my family minus the millions lol!
