The Drama of Reality Weekly

Just what is going on at Reality Weekly, the recently-launched mag from AMI? People outside of the magazine have been saying that it’s a flop, that the debut issue sold only 100,000 copies despite there being 500,000 available, and every issue since has failed to hit that mark.

However, AMI says that everything is going great. A spokesperson told WWD that each of its 13 issues so far have sold 100,000 copies and that the magazine is already raking in a profit. The person also said there are even talks of creating a news show centered on Reality Weekly.

So who do we believe? A news program based on a magazine that’s based on reality TV? Is there really a demand for that? We’re not so sure. Although we have to be honest, if Johnny Bananas is an anchor of that show, we’ll definitely watch.
