how violent reality shows effect viewers
HOW VIOLENT REALITY SHOWS EFFECT VIEWERS
  • Social Awareness- many reality programs include messages about preventing violence or anti-bullying in their opening or closing credits.
  • Shifting of Cultural Norms- viewers see violence on TV and soon believe it is acceptable to society, when in reality if a person not on TV were to fight like the “stars” of their favorite programs, they would most likely be arrested and face assault and battery charges.
  • Desensitization – the more viewers are exposed to violent behavior, the less of a “shock factor” they have when they see these acts.
what an expert has to say
What an expert has to say:
  • “I think that the biggest danger for our society is the fact that we are really becoming desensitized to things that are really awful and traumatic to watch.”
  • “Things that we used to turn away from are now things that we watch on television on a daily basis; it sends a message to the viewers that its something that is socially acceptable in our society these days.”
  • –Stacy Kaiser, psychotherapist
what a reality television star has to say
What a reality television star has to say:
  • While being interviewed by ABC News, star of MTV’s the Hills and E!’s Holly’s World was asked:
  • “Does every reality show need a bad girl?” And she replied with, “yes.”
  • She also shared that she made a lot of money being a bad girl and says, “I am forever marked as the instigator; known for stirring up trouble.”
  • When asked how much the television shows producers have to do with the violence on these shows she said, “They create a lot of the drama and start a lot of the fights.”
