Harsh Reality: Numbers Hit Home for Critics

Here’s a fun fact out of the Fox Reality Channel from channel President David Lyle.
Mr. Lyle said in 2002, there were 27 new reality shows making their way onto broadcast and 22 on cable.
Today, there are 32 broadcast reality shows and 140 squirming through cable.
Mr. Lyle was trying to make a point about how Fox Reality isn’t alternative programming, but there was a somewhat horrified gasp coming from parts of the room.
