This special issue examines reality television, analyzing how it produces certain ways of seeing, knowing, feeling, and being for viewers and society. The essays explore common reality television themes-health, housewives, "hot bodies," and "hoochie mamas"-and programs including Jersey Shore, the Real Housewives, and Intervention in relation to gender, sexuality, race, and class. The contributors consider reality television's industrial and affective economies, its constructions of celebrity and sociality, its ethics and epistemologies, and its implications for viewers and our culture. Unpacking a significant media phenomenon of the era, this issue allows readers to better understand and productively engage with today's mediatized culture.
