ABSTRACT
The article reports that cable networks continue to build up production on reality and competition fare to build their brands and tempt younger audiences in the U.S. According to Robyn Lattaker-Johnson, senior vice president of development for reality programming, it was very difficult for cable networks to do a competition reality show because if an elimination is revealed, it does not necessarily repeat as well.
