>Does anyone know other books or articles on the subject of reality TV (and

I know of three additional scholarly publications about reality based TV:
Two by my friend and colleague Mary Beth Oliver: "Portrayals of crime,
race, and aggression in 'reality-based' police shows: A content analysis,"
in _Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media_, _38_, 179-192; and Mary
Beth Oliver and G. B. Armstrong, "Predictors of Viewing and Enjoyment of
Reality-Based and Fictional Crime Shows," _Journalism Quarterly_, _72_,
And Robin Andersen, _Consumer Culture & TV Programming_, Boulder, CO:
Westview, 1995 (see Chapter7, "_Cops_ on the _Night Beat_.")
Hope these help!
