'If You Are the One': dating shows, reality TV, and the politics of the personal in urban China

31 Oct 2014
Description

Dating shows and other lifestyle programs have become the stock in trade on Chinese television following the commercialisation of China’s media and the globalisation of television formats. But it is Jiangsu Satellite Television’s If You Are the One, that started in 2010, which has proven to be most popular across the nation—and around the world. Why does the Chinese government wish this program didn’t exist, asks Wanning Sun in the Australian Review of Public Affairs (130).
