Survey: Public May Be Getting Tired of Reality TV

Sep 9, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A new poll commissioned by TiVo provides indications that the public may be getting tired of reality TV, TheWrap reports.

"Snooki and ‘Real Housewives’ fatigue may be setting in," the survey states, according to the story. The study examines which shows TV viewers can be expected to watch this fall.

The survey found that "Law & Order: Los Angeles" and "Hawaii Five-0" are the most anticipated new series, according to the story.

Also among the findings reported in the story:

27% of viewers like the suspense genre the most, followed by comedy (22%).

40% picked reality TV as the TV theme that is the most overdone, followed by vampires and supernatural (22%).

The most anticipated returning series are "NCIS" (24%), "House" (21%) and "The Office" (15%).


  1. Can’t wait for the premiere of “House” this season. The pairing of Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein just sizzles.

  2. “I think that genre is overdone” means something very very different from “I’m tired of it… and thus will watch it less”.

  3. Reality Shows are put on by lazy and cheap networks who don’t want to go to the trouble to pay for good scripted show that actually have a theme, other than how stupid you can show yourself to be.

  4. I’m so glad the public is tired of it. I never got into reality shows. For me it was a degenerate side of life that we do not see. Not all of it was degenerate but you could expect the unexpected from some participants and that was not good for me, quality TV, or classy TV visualizations for the public.
    Good riddance

  5. “Reality TV” is the perfect misnomer: it isn’t real, but loosely scripted on set as it’s shot, and it never belonged on TV. That brand of sophomoric drek belongs on YouTube – or anywhere my eyeballs are not.

  7. I, for one, am not tired of reality shows yet…although there are a few that I pass on entirely. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills looks pretty drama filled to me! Can’t wait!
