David Hasselhoff David Hasselhoff has slammed the rise of reality TV shows, insisting they have "ruined television" - despite his appearances as a judge on America's Got Talent and competing in Dancing With The Stars.

The Baywatch actor sat on the panel of the U.S. talent finding series from 2006, but quit his duties after the 2009 season.

He signed up for the TV dancing show last year, but was booted off the celebrity contest first - and he's now filming the upcoming season of Britain's Got Talent.

However, despite his heavy involvement in reality shows, Hasselhoff admits he's not a fan of the genre and the impact they have on the quality of programming.

Speaking at Britain's Oxford University, he told students, "Reality television has ruined television. It is exploitation of youth."
