Sometimes they are covered under AFTRA (The American Federation of Television and Radio) and sometimes they are not.

Some of the cable network shows are not covered at all.

I would say that the more scripted a show is, the more likely it is covered by AFTRA since then it really isn't a reality show but I could not confirm that they are covered by AFTRA.
