Celebrity driven reality TV continues to bring in top ratings for television networks. For over 10 years, every network from MTV to ABC has enlisted famous actors, musicians and athletes to translate their fanbase into viewership. Singer Ozzy Osbourne was among the earliest to let reality TV cameras in his home and film his family for the long-running MTV series, ‘The Osbourne Show’. According to MTV, 'The Osbourne Show' was the most-watched program in the history of their network.
It is no secret that a reality show can either revitalize a stars career, or accelerate their downward spiral. Tia and Tamera Mowry experienced recent success while filming their popular WEtv reality series ‘Tia & Tamera.’ Reality TV gained them new acting and hosting gigs and resulted in the launch of several new product ventures. Meanwhile, sources close to struggling actress Lindsey Lohan told Radar that Lohan felt her recent OWN docuseries ‘Lindsey’ closed even more doors to future acting opportunities in Hollywood.
