19 TV Shows That Must Exist

After thinking about what’s missing on TV, I came up with a list of 19 shows I’d watch on TV every week if they existed. Today’s TV lineup is decent, but it could use a little spice.

If a TV network is making any of the hypothetical TV shows I mentioned, I’m going to need a residual check.


The Real Housewives of Hip-Hop

Reality TV shows centered around housewives are an integral part of the unscripted reality TV genre. There are The Real Housewives of Atlanta and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but there is not any The Real Housewives of Hip-Hop. I would love for there to be a reality TV show that focused on the lives of the wives of hip-hop megastars. The famous cast would consist of Shante Broadus (wife of Snoop Dogg), Cardi B (wife of Offset), Kimberly Woodruff (wife of Ice Cube) and Melissa Heholt (wife of J. Cole ). I tuned in every week to see what life is like as a woman when you’re married to a key player in the hip-hop game.


Flavor of Love All-Stars: Another chance to love with Flavor Flav

Season 1 and Season 2 of flavor of love spawned a plethora of gifs and memes embedded in internet culture. All over social media, notable contestants like Tiffany “New York” Pollard and Schatar “Hottie” Sapphira are still being talked about and adored. I’d love to see them and the other women who didn’t win Flavor’s first (or second) love fight again in an all-star competition.


Famous social media

It would be hilarious to watch a satirical comedy about fictional social media stars and their daily lives as popular online celebrities.


Big El’ takes New York


Elmo went viral on the internet after a clip of him saying “balsamic vinegar” in a very New York tone went viral. After gaining street cred for uttering balsamic vinegar like a Bronx native of color, Twitter started dubbing him Big El’. I propose that TV programming work with this and create a show about Elmo’s alter ego, Big El’, running around New York doing things in New York.


Catch Karen

Karen is an understatement for prejudiced and titled Caucasian women who have a habit of targeting people of color without provocation. Many of these “Karen” are easily identifiable; however, some tend to go unnoticed. There should be a show exposing all the Karen in this world, and it should be called “Catching Karen”.


celebrity moms

I tuned in every week to see celebrity divas Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Kim Kardashian and Queen Bey juggle mommy duties and professional life.


That 2000s show

CNN / Via youtube.com

It would be cool if there was a show that focused on a group of teenagers coming of age in the early 2000s. Like That 70s showbut set in the 2000s era.


America’s Next Best Influencer

I would tune in every week to see regular non-social celebrities compete for the top spot as the next top social media influencer. If this show were to happen, it would have to be hosted by Tyra Banks.


Bachelorette parties

TV is filled with wedding planning shows like Bridezilla and Say yes to the dress. What television needs now is a show that sheds light on what goes into planning a super bachelorette party. I’d love to tune in every week to see how friends plan a stellar surprise bachelor party for their nearly married friend.


Iced Coffee Wars

To imagine Cake Warsbut instead of the chefs staging an extravagant cake battle, they whip up epic iced coffees.


Sorority Sister

Tenor / Via tenor.com

There should be a reality show that chronicles the lives of members of some of the nine divine sisterhoods like Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Alpha Kappa Alpha. The show would cover what it takes to join one of the major historically black sororities, what it’s like to be a line sister, and the benefits of being in a Divine 9 sorority.


Degrassi: The Next Generation Revival

A Degrassi reboot is in progress; however, the only Degrassi the reboot that needs to be is centered on Degrassi: the next generationis the starting formation. This Degrassi the reboot would explore where core characters like Manny Santos (Cassie Steele) and Emma Nelson (Miriam McDonald) are in their adult lives.


Exposing reality in reality TV

MTV / Via blog.giphy.com

Spencer Pratt from the hit reality show The hills was very transparent about his experience on The hills reality show. On TikTok, Pratt disclosed the tactics used by reality TV production teams to present some often false narratives for the show’s storyline. Just as Pratt exposes The hillsthere should be a show that exposes the reality behind the “real” reality TV moments.


I never told this story

There’s a lot going on in the industry, and some things going on in Hollywood just go untold. I was watching a show about celebrities telling untold stories about themselves, their experiences in Hollywood, and their interactions with other celebrities.


Celebrity kids do odd jobs

Columbia Pictures / Via GIFR.com

I just want to see famous people’s kids doing special jobs that regular people do. The money that celebrity kids would earn as food testers or dog groomers should be donated to charity, obviously.


Clubbing around the world

Tenor / Via giphy.com

I would love for there to be a series that shows where the hottest nightclubs in the world are. Oh, and it must be hosted by Paris Hilton.


Hinge fittings

NBC / Via gfycat.com

It seems like most millennials use dating apps like Tinder and Hinge to establish romantic relationships these days. I want there to be a dating reality show that focuses on someone going on their first date with the person they hooked up with on the Hinge app. It would essentially be a revamped version of the TV series Blind date.


life exchange

Buena Vista Pictures / Via GIFER.com

Wouldn’t a show about people changing their lives for a day be great for TV? I think it would be…


To set down

Comedy Central / Via getyarn.io

A show where celebrity lookalikes completely transform into their celebrity lookalikes and attempt to impersonate that celebrity would be epic. How many people would believe them? Would they get preferential treatment because people think they’re meeting that particular celebrity? It would be funny to see if celebrity lookalikes could actually pass as real celebrities and earn the same perks as them.

What TV shows would you like to see come to fruition? Let me know in the comments section below!
