They Have an “Image” to Uphold
“When moronic lame stupid TV shows attack” would have been just as good a name for Fox’s new series “Man Vs Beast”. I caught about 5 minutes in total, in which I watched a tiny little japanese guy (granted, the world eating champion) square off against a bear to see who can eat 50 6″ hotdogs first. This spectacle was complete with judges and commentary guys, and was introduced by a guy in a tux who looked like he was probably a has-been or minor (and I do mean minor) celebrity or sports guy.
When they brought out a chimp to have a tug or war with a sumo wrestler I went back to the far more rewarding activity of bashing my head against the wall.
