According to a recent US Today survey, American Idol and Dancing with the Stars holds the two spots for top watched television shows.

What makes these shows so popular?

I was surprised to ultimately find some controversial issues surrounding both shows. American Idol has been recently criticized for racism (Elton John), vote manipulation ( and, disqualifications due to personal connections with networks (Joanna Pacitti), etc.

Following game shows, reality television, and talent contests will always be possibly controversial to American ideals and standards.

Yet a majority of Americans follow these shows on a consistent basis.
