Reality TV's Growing Pains: What Will It Take to Find The Next Big Hit?

Phil Robertson

It's time for a reality-TV reality check. Even top executives and producers admit that the genre has become tired — an overload of singing battles, food challenges, screaming housewives and dating competitions. "We've been in a huge reality drought," says Greg Goldman, the new president of Studio Lambert USA, which produces Undercover Boss.

The broadcast networks continue to coast on the enduring success of veteran franchises like Survivor, but they're not minting many new hits. In cable, the success of docuseries like the Real Housewives franchise and Love & Hip Hop has led to a glut of such shows.

But a shake-up may finally be on the way. CBS recently named a new head of reality TV, Chris Castallo, while Fox is looking to fill the top job in its alternative department (which infamous reality kingpin Mike Darnell vacated at the end of July). There's also a new head of unscripted TV at AMC, while TruTV and A&E, both big reality networks, have new bosses. read more

TVGN Reveals New Fall Lineup Featuring Two Reality Series, Projects with Wendy Williams, John Rich

John Rich and Wendy Williams

TVGN is expanding their original programming with new unscripted shows debuting this fall that feature a mother-daughter duo managing kids in show business, a tequila entrepreneur and his four daughters, Wendy Williams and John Rich.

Mother of All Talent is an eight-episode docu-series that follows mother-daughter duo Nikki and Lorri, who have built one of the nation's leading talent agencies for kids in Staten Island, N.Y. Mother Nikki can be blunt and overbearing, while daughter Lorri always makes things right for the clients. And then there are the stage parents! Seth Jarrett (Boston's Finest) and Julie Insogna-Jarrett are executive producers... read more

The Weekend Playlist: Maron on IFC, Diana Rigg on Doctor Who, Bletchley

Diana Rigg in Dr. Who (l), Game of Thrones(r)

"You're just not for everybody," comedic curmudgeon Marc Maron is told — by the more popular TV clown (at least among a comic-store backroom of Twitter nerds) Dave Foley, who plays a rather unflattering version of his real self, as does Maron, in IFC's new dark-side-of-laughter comedy series Maron (Friday, 10/9c). Sunnier than FX's Louie if only by virtue of being filmed in California, the sardonically squirm-inducing Maron alternates between slice-of-rant sitcom and self-obsessed podcast from the comedian's garage, where he vents on his unhappy personal life, his diarrhea-prone cats and his unruly, taunting Twitter following: "Who are these people? Don't they have lives?" You might well ask the same about Maron, although if he was happy (shades of Louie) there'd be no show.

The Weekend Playlist: A Great Wife, a Simpsons Short, Downton Finale

Julianna Margulies

With back-to-back Sundays devoted to the Super Bowl and the Grammys, CBS has enjoyed a spectacular February so far. This Sunday, the only week in February with no major TV event — next Sunday belongs to ABC and the Oscars — the network's ratings will no doubt come back down to earth. But two of CBS' Emmy-winning crown jewels take center stage, and in one case shouldn't be missed.
