Celebrity T.V.: What Will They Think Of Next?

As if ABC's Dancing with the Stars wasn't enough to make you want to go and take a dip your septic tank rather than watch, FOX has come up with a rebuttal to this star studded phenomenon ... Skating With Celebrities. From what I gather, it's pretty much the same concept. Find celebrities with little or no athletic ability, try to teach them how to figure skate in a short amount of time, and judges (who rate their performances) watch them crash land all over the rink. The only possible explanation for such stupid television material is to attract more male viewers by offering a greater chance of "bodily injury" live on t.v. (It's got to be nothing more than a beer bet between opposing network executives ... nothing more.) Let's face it ... guys like anything that involves any sort of wreck. If you don't believe me, turn on any police chase show with men in the room ... we're hooked for hours . I can only imagine NBC must be working on another ridiculous program to out do the others like "Curling With Movie Stars" slated for late 2006/early 2007, and PBS will follow suit with "Horseshoes With Professional Wrestlers" in late spring of 2007. My God ... where does it end?
