A DOSE OF REALITY ! :: 7/10 :: CNN-IBN Debates :: Are Reality TV Shows Going Over Board ?

Description:

"Nobody can get enough of reality TV shows. People, and politicians, get scandalized watching them but wont switch off their TV sets. MPs wanted controversial reality TV show Sach Ka Saamna banned for allegedly offending Indian sensibilities. The Delhi High Court said no. "Our culture is not so fragile that it would be affected by one TV programme. Those who don't want to see it can switch off their TV sets or can watch any other channel, said the court last week while rejecting a petition. Do viewers have the will to switch off their TVs or are they captive audience of reality TV shows? CNN-IBNs Bhupendra Chaubey asked this on a debate, Lets Get Real, to Nikhil Chinappa, VJ and host of the reality TV show Splitsvilla, psychologist Dr Sonia Mehta, Rahul Mahajan, winner of the reality TV show Big Boss II, actress and talent show host Kiron Kher, and actress Urvashi Dholakia, a participant in Sach Ka Saamna. For the political view on the issue there was Bharatiya Janata Party leader BP Singhal. Is reality TV promoting voyeurism? A clear majority of the audience in the show said reality TV shows sometimes embarrassed them. But yet they watched them, said Dholakia."..................................
