So anyone been following the transformation of Court TV to truTV?
That’s right. The programming won’t be reality television. It’ll be actuality television. More real than real, evidently. Truer than tru. In an AP article, a truTV exec explains without any irony whatsoever:
“Reality has a connotation of not being real, of being phony,” said Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of truTV. “We felt that because [our programming] was real, we couldn’t call it reality.”
I think that more or less speaks for itself, don’t you?
