History Lesson

Do you know the grandaddy of reality tv series?

"Real People" was a popular TV series that aired from 1979 to 1984. It was a groundbreaking show highlighting everyday people and their unique talents and hobbies. The show was created and produced by George Schlatter, who was also responsible for several other successful TV shows of the era.

"Real People" was a mix of comedy, human-interest stories, and celebrity interviews. The show featured a diverse group of regular people from all walks of life, including farmers, musicians, athletes, and artists. Each episode showcased their fascinating stories and talents, providing a platform for them to share their experiences with the world.

One of the show's most memorable segments was the "Man on the Street" interviews. In these segments, a reporter would go out and ask random people on the street their thoughts on various topics. The responses were often hilarious and provided a unique perspective on current events and popular culture.

"Real People" was also known for its celebrity guests, who were interviewed by the show's hosts. Some of the most notable guests included Muhammad Ali, Dolly Parton, and Sylvester Stallone. The show's hosts were also popular personalities in their own right, including John Barbour, Sarah Purcell, Skip Stephenson, and Bill Rafferty.

The show's success was due in large part to its relatability. It celebrated the everyday person and their talents, making them the stars of the show. It was a refreshing change from the typical celebrity-focused programming of the time and resonated with audiences of all ages.

"Real People" was also influential in paving the way for other similar shows in the future, such as "America's Funniest Home Videos" and "The Ellen Show." It showed that there was an appetite for programming that focused on everyday people and their stories.

SUR isn't always staffed with reality stars

Since Bravo began airing Vanderpump Rules, things have changed significantly for the once staff members. No longer relying on tips to pay their bills, the reality stars have changed their work routines quite a lot over the past few years. Although the show appears to predict its cast as full-time staff members of restaurants like SUR and Pump Lounge, it's merely careful editing. If you were to travel to one of the restaurants to see your favorite celebrities, you might be disappointed. Instead of working full-time at the Vanderpump restaurants, the cast reports that they only work when they want to, and usually, that's when the filming crew is coming. While the dialogue is still mostly unscripted, or so the cast claims, other parts of the show are intricately timed productions. Not to worry, the current staff of all the Vanderpump restaurants are lovely, and they would enjoy meeting you.
