Military
Talent Show
Educational
How To/Do It Yourself
Dance (Maybe make Music into "Music/Dance"?)
Documentary
Celebrities
Religion
Interview
Politics
Quiz
Makeover
Travel
Magazine (for shows like 60 Minutes and 48 Hours)
Art

That's a good start.

There are a lot of dating shows. I suppose the Reality (or gameshow) with the Romance category would work though.

Teen (for teen shows..maybe tween also) , since Disney and Nickelodeon, among other shows, market it for teens, but not adults or kids.

That's Reality (as much as Survivor and The Apprentice are)

I do think we need "Legal" as a category, to cover LA Law and Law & Order, etc. and the above ones I suppose.

Do we need a category called Contest? That might be a better term than Reality for a classification, since it would cover the Miss America Pageant as well as Survivor as well as American Idol as well as The Gong Show.

Also, where would you put America's Funniest Home Videos and Funniest Commercials shows?

Sketch Show is another that is needed as it's different to comedy.

I probably would've too, but I had to look for it in the past when updating a couple of shows.

Isn't that basically what the crime category is for, though?

Crime is intended for shows like the Sopranos, where criminals are the main characters. To me People's Court is not a "crime show".

We need Super-Heroes as a genre!

Maybe Crime/Punishment would work.
