    With all these idiotic game shows going around, what are some game shows that you think would be bad ideas?

    Here's mine:

    "Sniper"

    Basically, 10 contestants have to go through a city block while being shot at by CIA-trained snipers. If all 10 are dead by the end of the episode, the cache goes to the next episode. Oh yeah, whoever reaches the cache alive gets the money.

    I know it sounds ghoulish, but I wouldn't be surprised if something like that DID happen!

    I'd like to see a game show where contestants are locked in a cell and forced to listen to Top 40 radio. Whoever lasts the longest - they can ask to be released at any time - gets the money. Kind of a cross between Survivor and the Spanish Inquisition.

    I say we strap contestants to a couch and make them watch the current crop of game shows non-stop. The last contestant whose head hasn't exploded wins money, if not sanity.

    A game show that i'd like to call 'WHO WANTS TO BE A STAIN?'.
    You have ten contestants and you ask a series of questions, when someone answers a question wrong, they get launched out of a catapult... RIGHT INTO A BRICK WALL!
    The last one alive at the end gets no prize, they walk away alive, they should just shut up and be lucky they're not dead!

    I think Stephen King came up with the best ones as Richard Bachman... The Running Man, and of course The Long Walk *shudder*
