The Number: 63% - Few approve of reality TV shows

The public overwhelmingly thinks that reality television shows have been a change for the worse over the past decade; 63% say this compared with 22% who say they have not made much difference and only 8% who say they have been a change for the better. A plurality in all age groups — including 67% of those ages 18-29 — say these shows have been a change for the worse. Even though a majority in all education groups say reality television shows have been a change for the worse, college graduates, or those with some college education, are more likely than those with a high school education or less to say they have been a change for the worse.
