Context:

            According to FX Research 192 originally scripted shows aired in 2006.  In 2016 that number had risen to 455. 

 

Some (but not nearly all) things worth considering:

            The impact reality TV has had on scripted TV shows (note: this is not a research paper on reality TV but acknowledging its growth/popularity and the effect it has had on the production of scripted shows is advised)

            Are certain types of originally scripted shows (i.e. sitcoms, dramas, etc.) making more of a comeback than other types?

            What about these shows is appealing to an audience?

            Maybe consider the ways people watch shows nowadays and the impact of cord-cutting and/or online services (i.e. Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, etc.)

 

NOTE: Do not hand me a paper in which you provide numerous synopses of your favorite reality tv shows
