    I saw a bunch of ex-football players fighting/boxing each other, late night on some cable channel.

    Fox stoops low in the politcal arena, but here, they will be in their element. I think it will catch your eye at least and maybe even be entertaining if somebody scores a KO. Owen

    Isn't this just the alternate title to "When vicious animals attack"? [​IMG]

    They should have them box in a slightly larger "Chamber" and have the elements of wind/fire/rain/ice be part of the spectacle.

    You could call it the "Celebrity Death Match Chamber".

    Here in CT we get Dee Snider (ex-Twisted Sister frontman) on a morning radio show, and he said he was approached for this event to box Vanilla Ice! He turned it down, for various reasons, but mentioned that the payoff was in the "tens of thousands". He seemed to think that was a lot (well, I guess it is for one night's work), but it seems kind of low to me. 20 minutes of getting your arse kicked, plus a lifetime of scorn for participating, for only "tens of thousands of dollars?" I don't know...

    Just when you think that even FOX could not stoop any lower, they come up with stuff like this. Just about everything they do on OTA or cable TV gives new meaning to the word "pandering".

    $20-50,000 is not a big payoff for fighting a non-athlete? Dave I want a job where you work.

    More to the point, how do they think Amy Fisher is ever going to last more than a minute with Tonya Harding? That skater's completely nuts. I'd be afraid to step into a ring with her without her having any training. OK, if they give Amy a gun, maybe, but beyond that I can't see it.
    Now, Danny Bonaduce vs. Barry Williams sounds like good entertainment. [​IMG]

    There was an old multiple choice quiz gag on Letterman I always thought was funny, it went something like this:

    If Gary Coleman got into a fistfight with Emmanuel Lewis, who would win:

    a) Gary Coleman

    b) Emmanuel Lewis

    c) The viewing public

    This might be low, but its still GOOD entertainment.

    Now all they need is a show where 16 celebrities duke it out on an island in the middle of nowhere while being blasted by various weather effects and asked questions to win money. Maybe they should be forced to eat strange things, too...

    I would have liked a Harding/Kerrigan (sp?) match.

    How about Mills Lane and Judge Judy?

    Yesterday, I heard a commentator on NPR put this show in proper persepctive:

    "Reality TV has become nothing but welfare for the notorious."

    Saw a commercial for this during tonight's Simpsons. The third fight is Vanilla Ice vs. a mystery opponent. [​IMG]
