Every time I see a new reality show advertised on TV, I think “Why didn’t I think of that?” They’re brilliant in their own way. Their job is to make a lot of people watch television advertising, and they do it well.
Now it’s your turn. Give me the two-sentence pitch for your reality show.
My submission was MEET THE HOCKERS. Every week a different family burgles a house and pawns the loot. At the end of the series the family that is still at large with the biggest cache of cash, wins.
UPDATE: THE TRANSFORMERS. Electrical Utility Linemen are sent up a pole with a transformer rigged to explode when they get their face near it. Points are awarded for distance from pole they land, decibels of scream, and judges pick most disfiguring scars to become THE TRANSFORMER.
UPDATE: AMERICAN COPPER. Mall security guards steal the pennies from the fountain and build a radical parking lot cruiser.
UPDATE: Many of the readers of Dilbert Blog must give Adams ongoing inspiration. He clearly states the two sentence rule, yet commenters ramble on and on and some are serious about their suggestion.
MODERATOR: Humorist clearly states two sentence rule. Those who don’t comply are next weeks MODERATOR.
