Reality TV as a force for social good

News item today about how teenage pregnancy rate is dropping, which is universally thought to be a good thing.  The cause of this decrease is not being attributed to better sex education or access to contraceptives, or even the terrible posters and slogans the US conservatives develop but to reality TV such as Teen Mom and Help my daughter is pregnant and so am I.

My head is shaking; my lips are pursed.  If I was Nana you would hear my sniff.

I am struggling to believe that these programmes could, but what do I know??
