The Israeli public wants fewer reality TV shows gracing their television screens this summer, according to a poll publicized on Wednesday. The survey, which asked what kind of programming viewers wanted to see over the summer season, showed that over half of the public (58%) wanted to see an increase in dramas, closely followed by entertainment shows (57%) and documentaries (40%). Still, reality TV isn't defunct: 78% of those surveyed showed an interest in watching reality shows in general - just not as many of them - compared to 75% who were interested in sports shows. However, over 90% were interested in drama, entertainment and news. Only 9% of viewers wanted to see an increase in news programs, and a mere 2% wanted more sports shows. The poll also noted that reality shows were more popular among young people than among older viewers. The survey was conducted by the Milward Brown polling company and published in The Marker.
