The article presents information on the reality game shows shown on the television. According to the author, the reality game shows are alive, and well, and are as strong as they have ever been. American Broadcasting Co. suggests that for the success of reality game shows, what one needs to do, is to toss a bunch of B-list celebrity names onto a dance floor. This could make a show a great hit. According to David Goldberg, president of Endemol USA, which makes "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "Deal or No Deal" and "Big Brother," people involved in reality shows are making more money every year.
