    CBS Reality Shows Must Now Have 50% Non-White Casts, Network Says



    • On Monday, CBS introduced an initiative that requires these shows to ensure that 50% of their casts are Black, Indigenous or People of Color.
    • These reality TV targets will kick off during the 2021-22 broadcast season.
    • This initiative follows targets that CBS set for its scripted programs earlier this year as well as a deal to create programming with the NAACP.


    CBS’ slate of reality shows, which include “Survivor,” “Big Brother” and “Love Island,” will become more diverse in 2021.

    On Monday, the network introduced an initiative that requires these shows to ensure that 50% of their casts are Black, Indigenous or People of Color, or BIPOC. Additionally, the network has committed to putting at least 25% of its development budget towards creators and producers who are BIPOC.

    These reality TV targets will kick off during the 2021-22 broadcast season.

    “The reality TV genre is an area that’s especially underrepresented, and needs to be more inclusive across development, casting, production and all phases of storytelling,” George Cheeks, president and CEO for the CBS Entertainment Group, said in a statement.

    This initiative follows targets that CBS set for its scripted programs earlier this year as well as a deal to create programming with the NAACP.

    CBS has also mandated that its writers’ rooms must be staffed with a minimum of 40% BIPOC representation with the goal of increasing that number to 50% in the 2022-23 season.

    I never had any interest in those idiot "panem et circenses" to begin with. Let it be 100% colored, no loss. As noted elsewhere, go "woke", go broke.

    I don't watch CBS reality shows.

    I used to watch ABC's The Bachelor, and The Bachelorette.

    Many years ago, when I had cable, I watched the Osbournes on MTV. I saw them renew their wedding vows. They had a Jewish wedding. Ozzy Osbourne had a Jewish wedding.

    If you don't pretend Jews are White, this is probably true for most of television already.

    US is almost half nonwhite so it explains the media pandering toward nonwhite audiences through popular shows and advertising. it is no loss since I turned off TV years ago. I wish they go off the air.
