In the early years of its existence, talk shows became the most popular entertainment genre of TV shows. Thanks to them, faced with a problem, the viewer understands that there are many people around with similar problems, and he is not alone.
How valuable are talk shows?
Talk shows are valuable in that they unite people of different social statuses and ages, emphasizing the similarity of life positions, the affirmation of moral values acceptable to all, and the search for a universal solution to common problems. The task of the talk show participants (not only viewers but also experts) is to simulate a general situation for each individual case so that the viewer can feel it by projecting it onto themselves.
Reality shows, like any other programs on TV, are created for the attention of the audience. And this is normal – this is how peaches are grown for sale to customers in the market. You can look for some deep reasons by talking about some specific projects. But we do not think that it is worth looking for some depth here.
