Default Making the Band turns 20

https://www.realityblurred.com/reali...lity-tv-at-20/

The ABC reality show responsible for the boy band O-Town premiered as part of the network's "TGIF" lineup on March 24, 2000 -- two months before Survivor's take on reality TV shook up network television. "While it produced a boy band, O-Town, thatís still around today, the ABC series brought the language of reality TV from cable to broadcast TV and foreshadowed so many shows to come, from American Idol to Project Runway to The Apprentice," says Andy Dehnart. Making the Band premiered one month after Fox's Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? debacle from The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss. With Making the Band, though, "reality TV had finally found its way to a broadcast network, although MTV had been having great success with The Real World, its 1990s breakout hit," says Dehnart. "But broadcast TV had not yet aired an episodic, character-driven, narrative unscripted show."

When Making The Band was first launched we had seen a new type of reality show that made ordinary people the next music superstar starting with American Idol and so ABC decided to follow suit with Making The Band which turned groups of people into the new hottest band. And if it wasn't for Making The Band we wouldn't hear bands such as O-Town Danity Kane and the R&B group Day26 become superstars. But I think the two biggest bands out of Making The Band were O-Town and Danity Kane because Danity Kane released hit after hit but other than a second album you never saw a third album from Day26 but if you look at the general picture Making The Band was a successful show other channels tried to copy it with the WB's Popstars which launched the career of teen pop band Eden's Crush and the group Scene23 and who knows that someday Making The Band will be revived in the future
