How Shows Survive

We have all probably ended up watching something on the Discovery Channel or TLC. More often than not whatever it is we watch it pretty interesting.

The question I have always wondered about it how some of these shows can get access to what they do. Often you will see shows where they are behind the scenes of building a jail or visiting some sort of facility. And while there you have a host of the show that tries to help whomever he is with but instead really just ends up slowing things down. Given this, I have always been curious what motivates companies to have these hosts on and greatly slow down what they are working on. Is it because they are using television to help motivate their employees and make them work harder?

Who knows, but if there is no money changing hands you would have to wonder.
