Default TV Shows Copy Each Other...

obviously not new news to anyone...but i'm just amazed at the extent they do it, and how closely the shows are to each other.

why can't they come up with their own stuff?

MTV: Real World
CBS: Big Brother

Spike: Blide Date
UPN: 5th Wheel (there's a bunch i can't remember)

NBC: The Apprentice
CBS?: Mark Cuban's show
ABC: Rebel Billionaire

FOX: Nanny 911
ABC: just heard...coming out with a Nanny show soon

NBC: Law & Order (original, SVU, Criminal Intent)
CBS: CSI (miami, new york...etc)

NBC: Medical Investigation
ABC?: House md

NBC: SNL
FOX: Mad TV

NBC/FX: Fear Factor
ESPN: I'd Do Anything

and i'm sure i could go on if i watched more tv.
anyone else know of any two that are alike?

Big Brother and The real world have nothing in common other than the fact there are a few people that live in a house together. BB is a game show, TRW is not at all like that.

well they live in the same house, and they vote each other off based on each other performances....right?
that's sort of like the combination of MTV Real World & Road Rules

how about
FOX: The OC
MTV: Laguna Beach
i know one's reality, and one's not...but they're almost the same thing. same crappy drama, same rich girls, same plots...etc.

I firmly believe that Laguna Beach is not reality. I don't care what MTV says, that show has to be scripted.

advertisers also copy each other a lot...

ever notice how that new Hyundai SUV commercial is exactly the same style as those Hummer advertisements.

funky music, strange angles on the car...circling cameras, very simplistic. and then it zooms out in the end.

Local news: They show the same news stories and go to commercial at the same time

Street Smarts/Tonight Show's Jaywalking

The movie Dodgeball and the new Dodgeball league on Spike Tv or GSN

Different Strokes/Webster

Overall I dont think its a bad thing if the format is really interesting or entertaining

i remember a few years ago there was Armegeddon, and then a few weeks after there was one that was very similar. (involved comets, and the world coming to an end...etc)...forget the title though.

That's creative coppying, there are a bunch of kids in my broadcasting class that use those same techniques, all though the outcome looks pretty good, it's really un creative, people are afraid to try new things, or just stick to straight still camera angles...
