Real People

 (10)7.11979ALL
A weekly primetime newsmagazine that profiled funny, human interest stories. Instead of featuring celebrities, "Real People" searched out humorous individuals, situations and events that highlighted the common man. This landmark show inspired many copycats from the same era ("That's Incredible" & "Not Necessarily the News") to today ("America's Funniest Home Videos" & "The Daily Show")
