The Death of Reality TV?

After all the apparent hoo-ha over a TV show (“Celebrity Big Brother”) and alleged racist comments made by one of the so-called “Celebrities” – the UK’s bookmakers have apparently slashed the odds they’re offering to people willing to bet whether there’ll even be another series.

One UK bookmaker is now offering odds of 3-1 that no further series will be commissioned and 6-1 that there will be no more series of the non-celebrity version.

Surely though if Channel 4 do decide not to produce another series of either CBB or BB, everyone wins, especially if this marks the beginning of the end of “reality” and “celebrity” TV shows featuring people you’ve never heard of, or whose claim to “celebrity” is dubious at best…

Maybe the UK’s TV companies can stop producing this tat and get back to the days of quality drama and comedy shows…
