Report: Cops is filmed before a live studio audience
The hit show Cops, considered by many as the first reality TV show in the U.S., has finally revealed that it is filmed in front of a live studio audience. Beginning next week during the opening credits a voice will inform the TV viewers that the show takes place in a studio that contains a live audience. "It was something we weren't proud of and thought that it might take away from the total Cops experience," said Dave Altman, Cops' audience aplaud sign operator.
