Sure it does, but like any business you have to balance cost with customer feedback/likes. If there is a bigger profit margin on a reality show with low cost and big rating but high cost and like now an advertising market that is not paying like they used to for commercials the networks tend to pick the higher profiting shows.

Ratings are just for getting the highest price when selling advertising time but if there isn't anyone willing to pay what you want then you are out of luck there.

There's also the fact that these networks have investors and all they care about is the bottom line and if a reality show makes a bigger profit with a smaller audience it would naturally be picked to make investors happy.

I haven't heard anything in a day or two, but it sounds like he might be facing some proper jail time (or at least fines).

You hit the nail on the head. You can't swing a dead cat around without hitting some shitty reality program.

The problem is how you define reality-tv. It stated off as shows like The Real World or Surviver type shows, but really you could define Cops as one too. What about America's Most Wanted or other reenactment shows? In what class do Mythbusters or Dirty Jobs fill? Do you included documentary type shows like Man vs Wild because they share some aspects? Hard to know, but I don't think they really apply. Real World, Surviver, that TLC show on a Dwarf family are what traditionally mean Reality-TV. Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, ect. are a crappy new trend in game-shows. In these cases you might as well be watching bad Youtube videos.
