(Daniel Smith/Fox) The oddest thing about “I Wanna Marry ‘Harry,’ ” which premiered last night, is that the show relies on an assumption that it never bothers to support: that Henry Charles Albert David Mountbatten-Windsor is a desirable spouse.

The show takes this so thoroughly for granted that, in setting up a bloodbath over the fake Harry’s hand, it never takes a moment to consider whether its basic premise is true — or that there is something truly odd about the spectacle of a gaggle of American women falling all over themselves to be part of the British monarchy. Prince Henry of Wales, who will turn 30 this fall, may have a royal title and a steady job, but I am not sure how much else there is to recommend him as some sort of dream catch.

Some of these incidents seem like the inevitable consequence of growing up in public in a way that means your minor indiscretions, such as youthful pot-smoking and drinking, become media fodder.

But some of them also make Harry seem a little reckless and spoiled, especially for someone who grew up famous, and famous in a way that carries expectations for deportment.

I would say that in best case scenarios, the essential truth of a scene or scenario is conveyed, and in worst case scenarios, it is completely falsified.

"Sometimes, it’s falsified in the field [on set], meaning that producers will whisper things to cast members in order to guide the scene or to guide the conversation.

Here’s the twist: The people behind the scenes feel just the same way.(As he’s still working in the industry, we’ve agreed not to name specific shows.) Under the condition of anonymity, he shared a lot of surprising truths about what goes into so-called reality — and why it’s got us so hooked. Fox announced that it was riding the current wave of obsession with the British royal family by putting together a show called “I Wanna Marry ‘Harry,’ ” most of the reaction centered on what sort of woman could be dumb enough to think that one of the Princes of Wales would actually participate in an American dating show.Those skeptics apparently have not read up on their H. Mencken or kept current with the state of American reality television.But I suspect that the great innovation of “I Wanna Marry ‘Harry’ ” is accidental.
