The History Channel has Pawn Stars, A&E has Storage Wars, and now Spike TV is introducing it’s own TV show that reflects our economic downturn. The show is called “World’s Worst Tenants” and will act out crazy-but-true stories of foreclosures and evictions.
Tim Molloy, TV editor of The Wrap, joined us to talk about the crop of shows and whether these shows are exploitative or just art imitating life.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
