A discussion brought up on Can the same contestant represent their country in both Miss World and Miss universe? on whether a televised show like The Miss Universe Pageant is on topic here.
A Related question, Is a question on WWE on topic? Resolved as Wrestling, in regards to the scripted Plot, is on topic, but general sports related questions are not.
A contest like Miss Universe, The MTV Music Awards, So you Think you can Dance?, The Purina Incredible Dog Challenge, Or The Strongman Competition lack any sense of scripting or artistic value, vis-a-vis Movies and TV shows. They can't be considered a Reality Show in the same way Survivor or The Real World would. They exist outside of TV, and their televised nature doesn't affect them at all. Survivor only exists to be televised, Miss Universe much less so.
Should these be considered On Topic for M&TV, or not? Is there any compelling reason they should be?
Obviously, some may be tangentially on-topic, like the Oscars or the Emmys, maybe the MTV Movie Awards, not because they are televised, but because of the topic they cover, movies and film.
