Are We Approaching the Death of Reality TV?

It was a bit of a shocking announcement from AMC last week when they declared they were abandoning almost all of their unscripted shows (including Kiss's latest attempt to get their name on everything, 4th and Loud). It wasn't that long ago they seemed to be amassing a small army of reality TV, but now the goal is to completely focus on finding scripted series. This is only one cable channel, but this fall also saw networks bring in far less unscripted new shows. It has been awhile since there has been a major reality show hit, with Duck Dynasty being the last and its ratings are now plummeting. What does this all say about the future of reality TV? In my latest Collective Publishing entertainment column, I analyze the future of reality TV and why things have changed so drastically in the last year.
