     Most Popular Reality TV Shows
• America‘s Got Talent (also known as AGT) is an American
  reality television series on the NBC television network, and part
  of the global British Got Talent franchise(特权,公民权). It is
  a talent show that features singers, dancers, magicians,
  comedians, and other performers of all ages competing for the
  advertised top prize of US $1 million.
• The show debuted in June 2006 for the summer television
  season. Starting in the third season, the Talent top prize
  included US $1 million, payable in a financial annuity over forty
  years (or the present cash value of such annuity), and a show
  as the headliner on the Las Vegas Strip.
• American Idol The concept of the series is
  to find new solo recording artists, and has
  since become one of the most popular in
  the history of American television.
• As of June 2011, it is the most watched TV
  series in the Nielsen ratings and is the only
  program to have been number one for seven
  consecutive(连贯的) seasons, surpassing
  All in the Family and The Cosby Show, which
  were both number one for five consecutive
  seasons.
• So you Think you can Dance (舞林争霸)
  The show features a broad variety of American
  and international dance styles, including
  ballroom, Jive, swing, hip hop, krump
  contemporary, jazz, ballet, and bollywood.
• Competitors attempt to master these styles,in
  an attempt to survive successive weeks of
  elimination and win a cash prize (typically
  $100,000), the title of "America's Favorite
  Dancer" and often additional prizes.
• Survivor(幸存者) The show maroons(放逐到
  无人岛上)a group of strangers (as one or more tribes)
  in a desolate locale, where they must provide food,
  water, fire, and shelter for themselves, while
  competing in challenges to earn either a reward,
  or an immunity from expulsion from the game in the
  next of the successive votes for elimination.
• While much rarer than elimination by vote, medical
  conditions, such as injury or infection, have eliminated
  several contestants. The last two or three survivors
  face a jury composed of the last seven, eight, or nine
  players voted off. That jury interrogates the final few,
  and then votes for the winner of the game, the title of
  Sole Survivor and a million dollar prize.
• The Amazing Race(极速前进)is a reality television show in
  which teams of two people, who have some form of a
  preexisting personal relationship, race around the world in
  competition with other teams.
• Contestants strive to arrive first at "pit stops" at the end of
  each leg of the race to win prizes and to avoid coming in last,
  which carries the possibility of elimination.
• Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety
  of transportation modes, including planes, balloons, helicopters,
  trucks, bicycles, trains, buses, boats, and by foot. The clues
  provided in each leg lead the teams to the next destination or
  direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single
  member. These challenges are related in some manner to the
  country wherein they are located or its culture. Teams are
  progressively eliminated until three are left; at that point, the
  team that arrives first in the final leg(旅程的一段) is
  awarded a grand prize.
