Reality shows are tweaking old formulas

(Posted September 7, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

[Warning: Possible spoilers for fall reality shows abound. If you don't want to know, don't read.]

This fall, familiarity is the name of the network reality TV game. Of the nine shows that populate the network's fall primetime lineup, all except one will be a new season of a returning show. Summer was full of experimentation, and there were some successes ("Dancing with the Stars," "Hell's Kitchen," "Beauty and the Geek"). But for fall, it's back to established hits.

There will be a number of twists on familiar formulas, though. From Martha Stewart's version of "The Apprentice" to an "Amazing Race" run by kids and their families, networks are trying to keep older shows fresh.
