Scripted TV shows: Is Reality TV finally going away?

I saw Glee last night. I’ve come to the conclusion that finally, after a long, endless parade of “reality” TV from housewives who don’t know how to act to the VH-1 crazy spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off that TV is finally coming back to great scripted shows with a vengeance.

At least I truly hope so! Don’t get me wrong, I love the dance shows and the other talent competitions, but there are just WAY too many of these inane shows to actually add value to my TV viewing.

Glee seems to be bringing back actual enjoyment of the scripted word. It has singing. It has dancing. It has drama. It has the evil wenches, and the tools and it is all crafted in a neat little package. Sounds almost like a reality TV except, these people in Glee are more believable.

Here is to hoping that more scripted shows are a given in the future, instead of a novelty as once reality TV was. And I need TV execs to stop giving up on these written shows. In the past 3 yrs my heart has been hurt more times than I can count because they stop these shows in the middle of their fledgling debut.

Do you agree or disagree?

I totally agree. I love the cooking reality shows (*cough* Gordon Ramsay *cough*) but the Housewives of Gitcheegoomee shows? Pluh-eeze.

I see Steven Segal is getting a reality show on A&E in December. OMG. What is it- Those who can no longer act go to reality?
