Have you ever watched a television program or movie, or just seen a situation unfold in front of you where you think "I would have been able to do that." Well, with the ABC News television show What Would You Do? there is now that chance. The television program is a real life program which brings the audience into the show. The premise of the show is two or three actors are placed into an open location, such as a restaurant, park or other center where other citizens are. All of these citizens do not know it is a television program or what is taking place. Hidden cameras are installed all around the facility so there are no actual cameramen. The two or three actors are placed right in the middle of the location and begin discussing a controversial topic. This might be a couple where the man completely belittles the individual, or when a table guest refuses to pay for the meal because of the waiters ethnicity. All of it is fake but it is designed to see what the average citizens around actually do.

Usually, all of these situations and scenarios are placed to make someone want to stand up and say something. To do something to stop it. The show What Would You Do? is designed to try to get someone to say something and see if anyone is able to stand up and do something about it. Most of us like to think we'd do something should something such as the events on What Would You Do? unfold, but it is rather interesting to see exactly who does and who just sits and stands around. At the conclusion of the segment the host of the show actually comes out and explains to the individuals who stepped in that it was nothing more than just a show. The host then goes in and asks why they stepped in or said what they said.

What Would You Do? is an interesting take on small issues that come up each and every day. You always wonder what might take place or what you might do in order to help someone out. Well, if this is the case than you never know when you might appear on such a television show, as What Would You Do? travels the country and films just about anywhere, so always be prepared to help out.
