Summary "Reality TV restores a crucial, and often absent, element to the critical debate about reality television: the voices of people who watch reality programmes." "The book draws on quantitative and qualitative audience research to understand how viewers categorise the reality genre, and how they judge the performance of ordinary people and the representation of authenticity within different types of reality programmes, from Animal Hospital to Big Brother. The book also examines how audiences can learn from watching reality programmes, and how viewers think and talk about the ethics of reality TV."--BOOK JACKET.
