    Spike TV
    Now known as the original reality series, COPS hit the airwaves in early 1989, putting camera crews in police cars all across the United States. Adopting the Cinema Verité style of documentary filming, COPS uses no narration, depending completely on the police officers and the footage shot as it happens to tell the story. Each COPS camera crew consists of a camera operator and a sound mixer. The officer is mic'd with a wireless mic directly to the camera and the sound mixer captures the suspects, witnesses and other officers with a boom mic. Multiple crews can be stationed in one area as well as crews working different cities across the country at the same time. Still one of the most popular television shows on the air, COPS moved from the FOX network to Spike TV in the fall of 2013, keeping it's original 8pm time slot on Saturday nights.moreless

    Spike TV (ended 2007)
    "MXC" (formerly known as "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge") is the ultimate in reality sports, where two teams of contestants are both physically and mentally challenged and eliminated through crazy and challenging games. To add to the fun, there's the hilarious commentary of Kenny Blankenship and Vic Romano, along with field reporter Guy LeDouche (and his many family members) and field marshall/referee Captain Tenneal.

    This program originally comes from a Japanese reality series called "Takeshi's Castle" that has been dubbed into English with comedic results that has nothing to do with the original format of the original program.moreless

    Welcome to The Joe Schmo Show guide. Season Two: Two people, looking for love in all the wrong places. But nothing could be more wrong than this. Meet Tim Walsh and Amanda Naughton. Two real people, in search of romance on a reality show that they don't know is fake. In a parody of reality-romance programs, the two new marks believe they are on a program called Last Chance for Love. What they don't know is that they have actually been cast and Joe and Jane Schmo and they are the only real people on program filled with actors and actresses. They're once again playing reality-show stereotypes, such as the Gotta-Be Gay Guy and The Weeper. Familiar parody-elements return including ridiculous competitions and over-dramatized eviction ceremonies - the "Pearl Necklace" and "Flame of Love" ceremonies. And given the type of show, it wouldn't be complete without "shocking" twists - this time in the form of the Falcon Twist, perhaps a parody of the apple of Eden. Also present is host Ralph Garman, returning in disguise as Derek Newcastle, the "pompous but randy British host." In the fourth episode, things took a twist when the producers revealed to the original Jane Schmo, Ingrid, what she had suspected all along: the program was fake and the only other real person on it was Joe Schmo, Tim Walsh. She was then asked to join the show as one of the actresses in exchange for $100,000. Following another Falcon Twist, Amanda was added as the new Jane Schmo. The second season of The Joe Schmo Show has come to an end. Tim and Amanda learned the truth about their experience and seemed to take it in good spirits. It seems that the crew of the show has moved on to other things, including the 2005 SpikeTV "reality miniseries" Invasion Iowa. Season One: How will it end? When will he know? They're all actors working from a script, but he thinks it's real. Matt Kennedy Gould signed up for what he thought was a reality show called Lap of Luxury. This program has all the trappings of a reality show, from challenges such as "Pampering Competitions" (reward challenges) to an "eviction ceremony" and reality-show stereotypes such as "The Grizzled Veteran" and "The Gay Guy." It's set in a luxurious mansion and seems like it should be a great time, but there's something important that Matt doesn't know... he's the only real competitor and the others are all paid actors striving to make him crazy. The prize is $100,000, but can Matt, or rather "Joe Schmo," survive long enough to cash in without losing his mind? In the stunning finale, Joe learned that the program was a fake and he was the winner of all the prizes on the show, including the $100,000 grand prize. An attempt was made to revive these episodes in repeats as Mo' Joe Schmo Show, but this flopped and was pulled from the airwaves. The entire first season is now available, uncensored and with many special features, on DVD.moreless
