No, the tv can teach people all kinds of stuff. That's why documentaries exist.

no reality tv sucks and they have gone way too far with it

Reality shows are stupid, and are pointless. Educational shows are the one's that you can learn from.

Yes, like in the Nanny reality shows. How does the Nanny make the kids settle down in less than one second? They must have taken a lot of days to get a perfect shot of them being quiet...

There's something that can be learned from anything...

Reality shows have no redeeming quality.

Yes, I read the question.

Well there are some shows that deal with reality like Nanny 911 that teaches parents how to treat and how to make their kids behave. I think that some parents can learn from that.

you cant really learn anything educational, but you can learn a lot about people, how they act in certain situations...
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 5/21/07 - 12:48:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
No more and no less than most other TV shows... seriously, how many of you watch TV for educational value? Its entertainment (albeit often low quality)

I think that we can learn a number of things about reality shows.

a) About how a fad grows and dies.
b) What about these shows captivated the audience and why
c) How and why a network would produce this programming.

I think we can learn something, but probably nothing of much importance.

Well...there is the history channel and the discovery channel..so I'd say yes, as long as you arent just sitting and watching cartoons all day then you can learn something.

Reality tv is just for entertainment purposes, I dont think there is anything you can learn from it
