Have the Reality Talent Shows Had Their Day? Carrie Underwood

It all started with American Idol. Well, not actually. Reality talent shows have been around in some form almost as long as television itself has been around, going all the way back to the early 1950s with shows like Talent Scout and Ted Mack & The Original Amateur Hour.
