A comparative critical discourse analysis will be conducted on the daylight reality programs "Esra Erol" and "Seda and Ugur", which are broadcasted in the Turkish national channels. The narrative codes of such programs will be handled both formally and contextually. The common and dissimilar codes of both programs will be determined and a conclusion will be reached about the general structure of the daytime woman reality show programs. The reasons for the selection of the mentioned programs, is to evolve into a new reality show program by changing the long-standing program formats to the decision taken by the Radio and Television Supreme Council. The aim of the work is to find out if this change has traces from the previous program format and what kind of codes the changes made over the previous format contain. In this study, television program types and 'Reality Show' will be examined in a conceptual and theoretical framework and it will be briefly mentioned which TV production elements are included in the women's programs to be investigated and their functions on gender discourse will be mentioned. The survey will answer these following questions: "What are the themes in the general flow of programs?, "What kind of codes do these theories contain when dealt with in the gender context?", "What kind of discourse does these programs have in both formal and contextual gender contexts?" "What are the similarities and differences between the unchanged from the previous formats by the decision of the Radio and Television of these programs Supreme Council and their new formats?" In this research, five parts will be selected from each program to watch and critical sections will be analyzed. The findings will be discussed in theoretical terms with the liberal feminist perspective and will be connected to a conclusion.
