When people watch TV, they dont necessary look for good role models,instead they look for the evil side of it, but how does watching them affect the viewer? Before, people used to spend with family and friends sharing their stories; however, since the creation of television shows such as reality shows this bond died. Reality shows are TV programs created from real life people for real life people, this shows are not made from actors following a script. Even though not all reality programs do this, the audience still believe its credibility. This reality tv programs were made to show people like the audience do real stunts and actions generally accepted by the audience of this show, specially among teens. Nevertheless, reality tv shows are a bad influence because it shows too many fights, either real or faked, and they do not sensor their language among the young generations.

The majority of reality tv shows are not a good influence on the yound generations because this programs show too much violence. Violence is widely accepted around the young generations fans of reality shows because of the asociation created with real life. This violence is often is shown in fights caused by stupid reasons and in most cases, this fights are pre programed or 'acted' by the same people. Fights are not the best examples for the young generations because they are ofted practiced by the wrong grups. The majority of fights and confrontations arrive from bad examples or role models from reality tv shows. The violents actors often turn into the role models of the audience ofted driving the audience to follow the peoples actions; this role models do not neccessary have to encourage good actions all the time. The actions in reality tv shows can reflect on the audience so perfecly, so exact that the audience often use violence the way used in the program. The phisical violence is a very harmful exaple to the audience, but even more harmful are words.

Unlike phisical contact, words often hurt more and have a longer gamage. In reality TV shows, execive language is used too ofted that it has formed part of their normal way of speaking. The violence in the words can cause serious mental damage to the young often leading them to speak like the protagonists adapting this words. The problem is that the vocabulary used by the audience learned from the protagonists does not stay where they learned them and it could speread to paces such as school. Once in school this vocabulary might spread even more and even used against other students. This disrespectful words could even be use at home, and against the parents. The ones affected by all actions learned from rality shows are mostly the parents because it reflects on them as parents. The exessive language in the TV reality shows are the worse of influences because the majority of society is somehow attached to TV and its harming contents.

Reality tv shows are a bad influence on the youth viewers because they shows too much phisical violence, and they use exessive harming language among the young generations. Reality TV, a tool to sepread 'real life' situations and stunts that ofthen share harming content are not a good role model. Reality TV shows that fights are okay and that defending your opinion with phisical violence is acceptable. Like phisical violence but worse, verval agression and exessive use of harming words fills the audience with the wrong idea of the correct usage of vocabulary. This television programs affect everyone, but specially the future generations wich are the young, reality tv only harms the viewers.
