Perhaps the funniest unscripted show concept ever

    (Scroll down to "Who Wants To Be A Superhero?")

    I try to come up with something to say that improves on the glorious absurdity of this concept, but I can't. I am imagining "Are You Hot?" crossed with "The Tick" and giggling as I write this.

    EDIT: I just had to explain why I was laughing out loud because an image of Adam West, Lynda Carter, and Lou Ferrigno judging this thing in a set designed to resemble that Superboy cover (you know, the one with the Legion Of Super-Heroes saying he can't join because his powers are too ordinary) popped into my head.

    As sick as I am about all of the reality shows. This might not be a bad idea. I mean maybe they can find an actor who looks like Superman. You can't trust the suits at Warner...I mean Ashton Kutcher for Supes. [​IMG]

    So where do they find the contestants with superpowers?

    It's like the costumed version for David Letterman's Stupid Human Tricks.

    Good old Howard Stern is suing them over the 'Are You Hot' concept, saying it was his first.

    "Who Wants to be a Superhero" sounds a lot like that funny scene in Mystery Men when they had tryouts.

    ... and The WB has picked the show up.

    The more I think about it, the more I think it would get sad about three weeks in. But those first two weeks could be highly entertaining.
