But still, the title is just unsettling.  I think somebody at the Discovery Channel watched that episode one too many times.

Posted this in the wrong spot (apologies to Nixorbo--all humans are vermin in the eyes of Nixorbo!  smile ) and thought I'd repeat it here where it belongs...

From The IMBD:

Tonya Harding To Go Into The Ring Against Amy Fisher

Fox is planning a new reality TV series, Celebrity Boxing, which is scheduled to debut as a Dick Clark-produced special on March 13, with bad-girl figure skater Tonya Harding and Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher duking it out. Newsday reported today (Thursday) that a future match will pit Darva Conger against Paula Jones. Fox exec Mike Darnell told the newspaper that Clark "loves the idea," adding, "He thinks it's funny and clever, and that's all our attitude. No one's going to get hurt."

Nah.  "Gladiatorial Combat" is what's next.  Either that, or a grittier version of Survivor.  10 death-row inmates are stranded on an island, and the last one left alive gets a reprieve.

"People Who Hit Things With Large Items"
And also, I watched the Glutton Bowl and the winner was this Japense person who I couldn't tell what gender it was who at like 40 cow brains. Now that's entertainment. By the way, I was being sarcastic.

Besides, the winner doesn't necessarily have to be the most dangerous. He might just be a good hider, playing dead in some far-off corner while everyone else kills each other off.

In 5 years, Fox could have "Let the Audience decide" where we come up with the idea for a show, a storyboard (as if) and decide what stunts and other bullstuff would look cool on TV. Another good title would be "Random Mindless Mayhem".

I think death match survivor is a good idea, if you are going to kill them anyways then they might as well entertain us, they could as have a prison big brother to see what the prisoners get up to when they drop the soap in the shower or alone together in their cells at night

To FOXecutives Who Green-Lit "CeleBox":

Sirs, I've known many a monkey, and you, sirs, are no monkeys. You aren't even fit to share a backwoods with the stupidest of inbred rednecks. If Pauly Shore and Carrot Top had babies, they would be you. They're busy building a special Level of Hell for you all right now...and it's not nearly as nice as the other Levels.

That's such bull.  I'm no flag-burning, First Amendment-pontificator, but that's a big load of baloney.  How can CEOs not expect to catch flak when they make unpopular decisions?  Did this Whatley guy make serious, false allegations about the Xybernaut corporation?  I can understand if counterfactual claims were made that Xybernaut was dumping mutagenic waste into Lake Erie or testing their products on third world orphans.  If the assertions were vauge, largely unproveable, and directed at a public figure or organization ("Microsoft is poisoning our minds&quot wink, I can't understand why there would even be a lawsuit.  If this is how the winds of change are blowing, just wait until corporations can hire contract killers to eliminate their critics.

I agree, this is simply bogus. And Fox executives rape goats and eat babies I guess we can look forward to more of the same in Dubya's corporation-friendly America.

What have they done to Dick Clark to get him to host this trash?  And he thinks it's "funny and clever?"  I sense a hypnotoad at work here.

The IMDB article references a Newsday story, which is online at:  http://www.newsday.com/entertainment/tv/ny-c2605318feb28.story?coll=ny%2Dtelevision%2Dprint

It contains a really funny quote of Fox backpedaling from their backpedaling (would that be forward-pedaling???):

Following the "Who Wants to Marry a Multimillionaire" fiasco last February, Fox executives ran for cover, promising to get out of the schlock reality-TV biz, and even hired an accountant to make sure future contests were legitimate.

A network spokesman, however, yesterday said that what executives really meant was that they planned to distance themselves from schlockumentaries like "When Animals Attack." "Every participant [in 'Boxing'] is voluntary, and it isn't exploitative," he said.


Ah, so they want to be able to share the shame of the show with the participants, not just be shamed for showing it.
