Television is too vast an enterprise to ever fit neatly into any year-end-story box. But there are years in which a certain thematic unity can be found among the biggest moments, hit shows, and most powerful narratives of the television season. This year, that common ground is reality TV - specifically, the spread of the reality TV sensibility not only throughout the medium, but through the larger culture. Reality TV was already year-end news in 2000 with the debut of Survivor (CBS). By the start of last year, it was a programming staple.

NEW YORK - The island of Manhattan has 32 miles of shoreline, but set out for a summer swim and you will find not a single beach from which to dip a toe in the surrounding waters. Add to that the legendary filth of New York Harbor, the miles of chain-linked shoreline marked "No Trespassing," and the rusty skeletons of long-abandoned piers. These are the symptoms of what is roundly regarded among the greatest civic failures in the nation's greatest port: a shoreline neglected, undeveloped and underused for generations.
