Why Do We Love Reality TV? It's Not Why You Think.

September 15, 2016
The Emmy Awards (on Sunday night) now gives trophies in four different reality show categories. The reality show has come a long way since Survivor and Joe Millionaire (give that one a Google - yikes). But why do we love them?

According to some scientists in Israel, we don't watch to see people get humiliated (which seems to be the stereotype). We actually watch because we like to see people succeed! That's all warm and fuzzy, but I'm not sure it's true for most people I know.
