Product Description


The success story of reality television, even with its oddities, is a reflection of American pop culture. Reality Television: Oddities of Culture is largely beneficial to communication scholars. The authors of this volume examine the strange aspects of what is considered "real," and how and why Americans are drawn to this genre of television. The book paints a picture of the odd, yet popular subject matter in a way that has not been previously portrayed. -- Dedria Givens-Carroll, University of Louisiana at Lafayette

Product Description

Reality television remains a pervasive form of television programming within our culture. The new mantra is go big or go home, be weird or be invisible. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Duck Dynasty, for example, are arguably two of the most compelling reality television programs currently airing because of their uniqueness and ability to transcend traditional boundaries in this genre. Reality Television: Oddities of Culture seeks to explore not the mundane reality programs, but rather those programs that illustrate the odd, unique or peculiar aspects of our society. This anthology will explore such programs across the categories of culture, gender, and celebrity.
