Favorite non-scripted television shows

I don't know if I'm getting old or what. But just about all I watch nowadays is shows like Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, No Reservations, etc. Workaholics and the Kroll Show are the only two scripted TV shows I watch (I still like movies though). I'd love to discover more shows like this that I might be missing.

Here are my favorite shows right now:

Dangerou Grounds - the host travels to hot spots around the world looking for unique high-end coffee. Coffee only grows in mountains in the tropics, which happen to be a lot of the poorer, more dangerous places in the world. I like the show because the guy seems pretty genuine, and it's just him and one camera man. So they can get into and out of some tight spots really quick. Also the scenery is amazing.

River Monsters - Huge man-crush on Jeremy Wade. This show never fails to blow me away.

Burger Land - the host travels the country for the best burgers. I like it because his favorite style of burger and mine seem to be the same - greasy meat, cheese and onions all fused together with the bun (like Town Topic - still looking for the equivalent in LA). And he gets into the history of the burgers in the places he goes. I enjoy them vicariously when I'm trying to follow my diet.

Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain
- I'm a huge Bourdain fanboy.

Alaska State Troopers - for some reason I tend to watch marathons of this when I'm hungover. I guess because it makes me feel good about my situation. There is nothing more depressing than a modern Inuit village.

Yeah a lot of them are. I guess not officially scripted should be in the thread title.

Moonshiners makes no sense to me. Just like the weed show. How are these people not instantly busted?

On Moonshiners, they are "re-creating" making moonshine. It's just water.

I actually watched an interview with the shows producer. In their State, the perpetrators would have to be caught in the act with the actual moonshine. They cannot validate or prosecute on assumptions gathered from the television show. Good luck finding those hillbillies out in the middle of no where.

No Reservations and a lot of the travel channel shows. Locked up abroad is my favorite on Nat Geo. I'm not even a car guy but I love Fast n Loud.

Duck Dynasty is (poorly) scripted.

Absolutely...I've met all 3 and they're legit, cool guys.

I also ghost hunt and have experienced things I've seen on there, even at the a few of the same locations.

My guess is the guys are just doing legal stuff and acting like it's illegal. Or talking about a lot of illegal stuff they never intend to do.

Non scripted?

Shark Tank is good
Undercover Boss makes me cry too much, but still good.

That's all, everything else I watch is scripted.

B. You don't really think Undercover Boss is legit, do you? All of these shows are scripted to some degree. Most of them are are complete bullshit.

Undercover Boss looked like a great concept, but it only took one or two episodes to make it clear that the whole thing was fake. The concept might have made a good one-time documentary if you could find the right corporation with the adequately low profile boss, but it's impossible to make a series out of it.
