THANK GOD ITS A REALITY SHOW ! Audience Interaction: emotions expressed through laughter, sighs, words such as aw and oh when characters say certain things Producer-created environment: the comedians are completely unaware of what is behind the door, and have to adapt to whatever situation they are presented Competition: The comedians compete against each other in order to be awarded the Thank God Youre Here trophy. After one comedian goes through their scenario they are deducted and awarded points. The winner is decided at the end of the show after the four comedians participate in an all in group challenge.
THANK GOD THERES A PATTERN OF CONSUMPTION Prime Time: Due to the prime time schedule that it was on, it allowed for more members of the family to watch it, including children under the ages of 13, with parental guidance. Extremely Accessible: Easy access as it is on free to air, can catch up via podcast, watch it online – the official website as well as older episodes on YouTube. Local to National To Global: it started off locally and nationally; which is evident through where scenes were filmed, who was chosen and the jokes and references made. Since the concept has been sold and been launched Globally to countries such as: - Spain = Youve Finally Arrived - Russian = Praise God, Praise Thee - Portugal = Glad to appear - Netherlands = Fortunately You Are There
THANK GOD THERES A PATTERN OF CONSUMPTION Gender: usually a higher percentage of males to female contestants, which isnt due to the producers choices – may be due to the lack of female comedians or females that agree to go on the show. Overall the gender of female and male actors are evened out. Ethnicity: They have allowed for an array of guest to appear on the show from difference cultural backgrounds and also sexual preferences.
THANK GOD THERES HEROES AND MYTHOLOGIES Heroes in the show are primarily the hosts and the contestants as well as the judge, which makes it appealing through the comedic appeal and the funny nature that the show has. Widespread appeal: making serious situations into something that is funny and also may be awkward for a normal individual Appeal through the prizes and who ever is the funniest hero/comedian wins the trophey
THANK GOD THERES BEEN A SOCIAL CHANGE Environment and culture = local, national, global = different types of thank god your heres to suit the culture Technology = the continuing improvement of technology means that thank god your here can be watched online and through podcasts which then allows for more consumption of it as people that work or whatever can watch it like whenever they want to
