    "Amish in the City" exposed its viewers to a subculture within America that many would not be exposed to otherwise. The differences between the "real world" cast members and the "Amish world" cast members showed viewers the differences in intercultural communications. We learned of subsultures within each culture represented and in the end the cast members and the viewers learned to communicate with cultures different from theirs and also learned to respect our differences. While other reality shows may draw more ratings, this show represents something that is missing in prime opportunity to resolve different intercultural misconceptions. I assure you that Americans will never run low on the misconceptions. Everyday more people are emigrating to these United States and within the next decade America will no longer be considered the Caucasian majority run country. It would be wise of Television prime time to reevaluate it's cancellation of a show that stands to improve intercultural communications. It would be very easy to focus on different cultures. It would be easy to experience an evolution in the show to create target audiences out of all Americans. I guess the only question that remains is "Why not bring back'Amish in the City?'"
