The reality TV of today that everyone knows, loves, or hates has the possibility of being discontinued. Shows like Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, and Kate Plus 8 could no longer be.

“I don’t really watch reality TV shows anyways, so it really wouldn’t affect me,” says junior, Daquan Ravenell.

TLC recently announced their first scripted drama being created by the famous, Tyler Perry. The new upcoming show, Too Close To Home is expected to air later this year.

Bravo is also fastly adapting scripted TV to their network, they released their first scripted show in 2015, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. They are in the works of producing and airing new shows such as Rules of Attraction, Shanghai, and Sweet Life.

Senior Gabby Anders says “I like the reality TV shows because they are so random, which makes it funny, but if it’s a good show I will watch it regardless.”

With major reality TV show networks such as, Bravo, TLC, and E!, moving towards scripted shows, this could lead to other networks to do the same. There will more than likely always be reality TV, but some of the networks are trying to move away from that and could possibly influence other large networks.
