It’s great to watch beautiful actors play out a carefully plotted script which has received hours and hours worth of dedication and head-scratching from a team of writers just for our entertainment. I mean, scripted shows are great. But they’ll never have the spontaneity of unscripted shows. Game and reality programs are, in many ways, better than the scripted ones. They are so popular with the audience because the cast consists of people who are one of them; the stakes are higher because one mistake would lead to the loss of a very large sum of money, and winning would include a bit of fame with a lot of riches. But that’s for those who get the chance to participate.
For the viewers, the excitement is increased because there’s no way you can predict the outcome, the entertainment is heightened because of the goofy or the dramatic things these real people do on TV, and in some cases, the educational factor is also included. All these things in just one package. With that said now, here’s the list of upcoming new reality series coming out in 2019 and 2020. We hope that these latest reality shows are as good as some of the recent releases.
13. First Dance (TBA)
While planning their wedding, the bride and the groom give a lot of thought to their first dance. What song should be played? How will they dance? Some need a bit of practice because, obviously, you don’t want to step on each other’s toe and display something that might lead some people to gossip about your compatibility. Most people like to take the easy way out — a slow dance on a slow song. But there are some who take things to another level. ‘First Dance’ is for the ‘about to be married’ couples who are planning something big for their first dance. This show by NBC will give you a chance to compete with others like you. The prize will cover your honeymoon and a part of the expenses for your wedding.
12. Card Sharks (TBA)
Recently, it seems like ABC has taken the responsibility of bringing back some of the most beloved quiz shows. A bit further down the list and you’ll find another one, and though I’m cautious to mention more names, there have been rumours of a couple more shows in line for revival. Fortunately for the fans, ‘Card Sharks’ is one of them. Originally airing in 1978, the show had two main aspects: the first one was for the participants to guess the demographics for a certain question asked by the host and the other was to guess whether the next card dealt would have a higher or lower value. As much as it has been popular, ‘Card Sharks’ has seen a lot of revivals over the years, jumping from one major network to another. Now, ABC has its chance to do something different with the show — give the audience something that they haven’t seen in the past three versions of it.
