Today's poll question, do you think that your current or most recent job would make a good reality TV show?" There is a rising number of television shows where camera crews follow people around at their jobs and put it on TV. I think it started with Dirty Jobs, because Billy the Exterminator, Pawn Stars, Ice Road Truckers, American Pickers, et all came after the trail blazing Mike Rowe. Did Deadliest Catch come before or after Dirty Jobs? I like Dirty Jobs, but a lot of these other job based "reality" TV shows I am not interested in. Quite often if you have seen one episode, you've seen them all. I am a fan of Billy the Exterminator.
There are a lot of jobs that would be an interesting 30 minutes of TV, but every day is the same and does not provide a plurality of daily twists and turns that you need to maintain audience interest. Dirty Jobs is great because it doesn't beat one single job to death, there is a lot of fresh footage.
