Television just loves being at the cutting edge...
"AFTER years of reality television, viewers are hungry for real stories on TV. Not contrived reality, in which contestants are pitted against each other in an artificial environment, but honestly told stories about real people's lives."
It's called documentary and it's almost as old as the motion picture camera. Get over yourselves.
