Default Same songs, same moves, Reality shows routine

Worst Television Judges!

There’s clearly been too much of it — switch on any general entertainment channel on the weekend and it’s most likely that you will have to watch a song-and-dance “reality” routine. Same songs, same moves. And if a debut show has been successful (think Nach Baliye and Indian Idol), then be sure there will be extended seasons of the same show every year. But there’s hope around the corner. With General Entertainment Channels (GEC) sprouting by the minute and competition fierce for eyeballs, channels are experimenting with the format and timing of reality shows. So, when Viacom 18 launched its GEC Colors, it gave viewers two outside-the-studio reality shows, Fear Factor, which was a roaring success, and the second season of Bigg Boss. Both were also aired on weekdays.

The tweaking of reality shows to keep the TV ratings high is bound to happen, says one analyst. But industry experts feel that it is important to exploit the success of a reality show to the fullest and successive seasons help in cashing in on its brand value. A second season of a popular show is thus viewed as a good opportunity to recover money.
Zee TV, Star Plus and Sony have all launched yet another season of their reality shows — Sa Re Ga Ma Pa (touted as the longest running reality show on Indian television), Nach Baliye 4, and Indian Idol 4 respectively.
