Yep. This is it in a nutshell.

There's also the gossip factor. People seem to like seeing bad shit happen to other people on "reality" shows because it's supposed to somehow make us feel better about our own pathetic lives. Culture has taken a turn from building up heroes to tearing down villains.

The irony is that people aren't even bright enough to realize that all the reality shows are heavily produced, and if not exactly scripted, everything is planned-out and executed the way the production staff wants.
