Lazarsfeld's theory:

The two-step flow of communication model hypothesizes that ideas flow from mass media to opinion leaders, and from them to a wider population.

It is generally accepted that most people spend a long time in front of the TV, especially consuming reality shows. In this discussion, we will focus on how these shows might be harmful for viewers.

Probably the most important issue is that these shows are watched by many people, perhaps because they do not require high concentration or previous knowledge about any field. Many people find reality shows entertaining. Interestingly, many people agree on the idea of watching how famous people live with each other or do little games in order to compete. Although I am not willing to spend hours in front of the TV watching it, many people find it more entertaining than going out for instance.
