The Decade of Reality TV

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

Survivor has changed television history in the last ten years. If you are Amish, too cool for TV, or just do not care then you are a little unfamiliar with the reality television show called Survivor. I do apologize to the Amish, not your fault, but the rest of you should be familiar with the show that has changed television forever. Last night season 19 was completed in one of the biggest seasons yet. Giving us a new hero in Russel (the best survivor player ever) and a mullett that will never be topped from #Shambo. Survivor is stronger then ever. In a market that is constantly changing and ratings rising and failing, survivor has held strong and is looking to have their biggest season starting in February with Survivor 20 (all stars edition).

In 2000, survivor made its US Television debut. Millions tuned in each Thursday night to watch what was going to happen next. It was so big in our house we had a survivor finale show with about 20 family friends. In 2000, survivor gave us what we commonly now all know (unfortunately?) as reality TV. A place where hollywood can show us what “reality” is, and average, everyday people can become celebrities. Survivor was the first show to hit it big and make reality TV a must on prime time television. Survivor is the most historic show in television history.

Is Survivor the greatest reality show ever?

Do you disagree or even care? What is better?
