Thank you for the question.  I was able to find many articles on reality television in our EBSCOhost database.  To get there go to our list of databases: http://libguides.madisoncollege.edu/FindArticles and click 'EBSCOhost'.  To start my research I like to click the box that says 'select/deselect all' then hit continue.  This allows you to search across many databases.  After doing a few searches, I discovered that 'reality television programs' is a subject term so if you search as follows you should get articles about reality tv:

I still got over 30000 articles when I did this search so you may want to add more words to your search.  If you're looking for info on a certain show or about a specific concept related to reality tv shows you could add that to the second blank search box to narrow down your results.

You can also narrow your results on the left hand side of the screen after you hit search by date, publication, geography, and many other factors.

I hope that this helps.  If you need any more help feel free to contact us again or stop by any of our libraries.
