Krazzy 4 Reality Shows !!!!

with 6 comments

Come home after 8-9 hours of work in office and who has the patience to watch all the reality shows. Yes my roomy has the capability to enjoy these shows- be it Mr and Ms TV, Ustaadon ka Ustaad, Bol Baby Bol, MTV Roadies and yes how can I forget the repeat telecast of Big Boss…Uff.. She is a big reality show junkie.. Whether it is Nach Baliye, Jhalak Dikhlaa jaa, Jhoom India…you just name it and she would have watched it. Even remembers who was eliminated how and what controversy took place The Reality Showsbetween the judges over a contestant. And now I see ads of Indian Idol coming soon. She is damn crazy about all those singing reality shows – Indian Idol, SaareGama and Voice of India..Seems more torture coming for me. She is so much engrossed enjoying these shows that I don’t like asking her to switch to other channels.

I am not able to understand why these stupid reality shows are getting popular day-by-day leaving behind the typical saas-bahu serials. Even my PG Aunti has stopped watching all those daily soaps and started enjoying these reality shows on Kannada channels. Seems even the regional channels also telecasting more and more reality shows. TV channels are increasing but there is no interesting programmes to watch. Either there are the typical saas-bahu soaps, reality shows or news channels which teleacast totally stupid news. One of the news channel, Aaj Tak which was one of the first Hindi news channel was a real good one but now it has converted to a stupid news channel with Breaking news like “Don ka Pyaar“. But still it has received best news channel award six times. Who gives them these awards? These are all totally Bakwaas!!!!!!

I agree that these reality shows give a platform to the common people to showcase their talents but they make these too dramatic to watch. And some of these even do not have the authentic voting system. Eliminating people on the basis of the votes of the people sitting at home watching TV has been criticised by a lot of people. But this has not decreased the popularity.

I have grown up watching Doordarshan and there were real nice serials like Buniyaad, Ye jo hai Zindagi, Nukkad. But now DD also in the race for TRP ratings and sponsors has stopped showing nice shows. I hope soon some channels bring the trend of some nice shows apart from the reality shows and soaps.
