Reality TV has changed television and changed reality, even ifwe are not among the millions who watch. Written for a broadaudience, this accessible overview addresses questions suchas:  How real is reality TV? How do its programs representgender, sex, class, and race? How does reality TV relate topolitics, to consumer society, to surveillance?  What kind ofethics are on display? Drawing on current media research and theauthor’s own analysis, this study encompasses the history andevolution of reality television, its production of reflexive selvesand ordinary celebrity, its advertising and commercialization, andits spearheading of new relations between television and socialmedia.

To dismiss this programming as trivial is easy. Deery demonstratesthat reality television merits serious attention and her incisiveanalysis will interest students in media studies, cultural studies,politics, sociology, and anyone who is simply curious about thisglobal phenomenon.
