Arabic reality TV shows are alive and kicking.
A new report from the Arab Advisors Group profiles major Arabic reality TV shows on five FTA satellite TV channels during January and February 2010. This includes locally-produced as well as licensed-format-based reality TV shows. The analysis reveals that the number of shows that are designed and produced by the stations is higher than the licensed formats shows.
Spurred by liberalization and the boom in satellite TV supply and viewership, many channels in the Arab TV industry recognize the need for offering quality content to maintain their attraction to viewers and advertisers. Reality TV’s attraction lies in its relative novelty to audiences as well as its lower costs of production as participants are mainly regular people and not highly paid movie and TV stars.
