The list of Hottest Shows of 2020 is currently incomplete. The nominations are in, but not the nominees. But we do know that shows from TV Land, Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds, and the soon to be cancelled Roseanne are nominated for the Best Comedy Show, Best Drama Show, and the Reality TV Show.
Reality is still the king of all the TV genres, and it continues to dominate at the Emmys and Golden Globes. The top ten shows in the Hottest Shows of 2020, however, looks a little different.
The biggest and most recognized shows of the new decade so far include The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Dancing With the Stars, and The Bachelor. The two most successful reality series of all time, American Idol and Survivor, are still new, but still in their sixth season.
The final season of The Apprentice brought with it an explosion of popularity, so that shows from this year are all but guaranteed to finish near the top of the Hottest Shows of 2020. There are always new talent to follow up on either from the Season Finale of American Idol or the Season Six of Survivor. The competition is strong from an audience perspective, but also from a creative point of view. Creators who were burned last year will be looking to the future of the show to learn lessons from and apply to their own work.
A new challenge for the entertainment industry, which is no doubt less new, is creating something new for the audience to enjoy instead of just entertaining them. The new concept for Reality TV shows is the “reality” series, where the focus is not on the story line, but rather on telling a story, whether through music, or videos, or great acting, or visual effects.
While the producers of Reality TV are searching for new ways to tell stories, they have to contend with the fact that the current formula of having a star and a non-star collide, or have an obstacle in their way, is still very successful. They have to keep it fresh, and work hard to find new ways to tell the story.
The fact that this format is popular shows how it is not necessarily a one-hit wonder, but that many of the returning classics continue to hold fans of the genre. It is very likely that some of the newer shows will be on the same shelf for a long time to come.
So if you’re looking for some fun, exciting shows to watch this year, you might want to take a look at the Hottest Shows of 2020. They include things like the reruns of Survivor, American Idol, and The Bachelor, and a new concept like the reality show.
