Entertainment was once considered art; however after technology immensely improved, televisions, as well as TV shows, became more popular. Television shows, in general, are very popular in modern society. This is because the viewers get involved with the characters; however, nowadays many people have been against reality television shows by telling why it has been causing many problems. Protests commonly say that people have been negatively influenced by reality TV shows because they are exposing people to graphic images, unrealistic expectations, and poor role models.  

Reality TV shows have been negatively influencing people by exposing graphic images. Money is so powerful these days, so some shows make people do incredibly dangerous things for it. Showing viewers dangerous and crazy events could lead others to a harmful reputation. Because safety is a very important factor for each, getting rid of reality shows that present people putting their lives at risks for unnecessary reasons should be not allowed. Although reality shows are popular and entertaining at times, it can lead to danger so stopping certain kinds of reality shows can save many people’s lives. Graphic images are not the only reason why reality tv shows should be banned. Making people believe in impractical assumptions is another reason why reality shows should not exist anymore.

Unrealistic expectations is another reason why reality television shows should be banned for good. Many reality shows have been presenting random people like waiters, cashiers, etc. becoming millionaires. However, that is not reality. Advertising false hope towards viewers can cause them to become bitterly disappointed after doing something very dangerous for no reward. Preventing people from doing unnecessary and dangerous deeds for no credit, it is best to stop reality shows from being produced. Giving people an opportunity to become rich by doing dangerous or risky activities is not a beneficial way to earn money. Another way reality shows influence people is by having atrocious role models.

Bad role models motivate people to do adverse behaviors. Role models can easily influence people because many look up to them. A role model is a very influential character and usually determine the correct behaviors. For everyone to have a better possibility of having a positive leader, getting rid of reality shows can make a big change.

In conclusion, reality TV shows should not be produced anymore because it has been displaying disproportionate pictures, false hope, and poor examples.
