Reign Of Reality Shows.

Yes, the trend has changed. Reality shows have conquered all the TV channels. Is this scenario a new face of change? New face of trend? And how long will this trend last?

Years back, Madhu Mohan was the trend setter, who revolutionised Malayalm television programmes with his non-stop-entertainer-mega serials. Hmm..hh..giga serials. Actually, he was an all rounder in his serials with 'kadha, thirakhadha, sambhashanam, samvidhanam and abhinayam'. How gifted a person he is! ;)

Then comes the golden age of reality shows. Even though it hasn't marked the fall of 'kanneer serials', there came a sharing of dominancy. Mega serials are now advancing with a variety of devotional mega serials - Sree Guruvayoorappan, Alphonsamma etc.

But, I think reality shows are a bit more advanced in the case of varities they are having! Shows in dance, music(with and without performance), cookery, etc..and lots and lots of varieties(actually, I dont remember other varieties). I'm not a regular viewer of these TV programmes, but have seen its ads many a time...even that is enough and more for me.

I'm wondering why all these parents and children giving this much importance to these nonsense(personal opinion). I pity for those who are spoiling their precious time, money, and education running behind these shows(again per. opinion).

I agree, it's a stage for many gifted ones to show their talents before us. But actually,hmm... I dont know what to say...it has crossed the limits. I'm bored of these TV reality shows. I hate watching them.. I'm sure, atleast a few of you will be having the same view as of mine.

You know, now the most common words among us(generally) are sangathi, chemistry, elimination round, In/Out, energy, pitch etc. Is it not true? Even KG students are familiar with all these words.

Streams of tear gushing from viewers', participants', judges', anchors' eyes(elimination round-danger zone scenes with deep-sad music and black&white background)) is the worst thing. It's really pathetic. It seems to me that, emotional scenes are more in reality shows than in 'kanneer serials'. And, in many channels, presentation by some anchors are terrible and horrible.

I think...other TV programmes(malayalam channels) are also not exception. I've a lot more to tell you, regarding these TV programmes.(...a kind of frustration...?) But, this is enough, I guess.

Signing off,
Hailstone.

Off topic: Did you know that it is impossible to sneeze keeping your eyes open? Try it! ;)

i agree with you..

they are "playing with viewers' emotions" in some or the other way
to increase their TRPs

they were good first..but now 4th consequent year...

these talent shows are actually
drama-comedy-tragedy-action-thriller shows,
also horror sometimes.

all they need is some talented participants like me..
so that the show will be banned the next day itself..;-)

interesting thought anyways.

btw
i read somewhere that if we sneeze with eyes open they may pop out.so better not try it

I don't have much experience. Still, the very few days I've spent in Kerala, in the past few years, have given me a feeling that the reality shows are unbearable!

A good post IMHO. :)

I will add phone-in programs also to the list, where one can dedicate song to your friends, relatives. For example, if coolraindrops wants to dedicate a song to thecoolsun, this is the best way to do it.

".....parents and children giving this much importance to these nonsense). I feel pity ....."

you know why? Because, for the winner, the prize is lacs and crores. And all the participants (and their parents) hope to be the winners.

@ Raman,
'participants like you'?.... Hmm...then definitely the show will be banned the next day itself. ;)

No sympathy for the sufferers here.Dont you people have something on your T V which can be used to swith it off or at least change the channels.Its the viewership that keeps such shows on air. (I like Idea star singer though I am not a regular viewer)

I am of the same opinion of 'Pavathan'.

@ Anony,
Thanks for dropping by and commenting here.

@ പാവത്താന്‍, Vivek,
Yes, I do have options to change channels in TV or switch it off. And, I'm doing the same. I just wrote about the degradation in quality of TV programmes. I never told I'm a sufferer.

I too dont have any sympathy for the sufferers. And it's so true that, it's the viewership that keeps such shows on air

@ പാവത്താന്‍,
I'm so glad to see you here. Thanks! Do visit again.

Hardly get time to watch TV's. Whenever I had tried to watch Malayalam channels I was enforced to change the channel because of the quality of programs that come around 8-9.30. Its better to stay tuned to 'Internet' than to watch TV. At least you don't have to see all these "BAKWAAS".
