    What I did notice was-
    One actor is playing Puck from MTV's Real World
    One actor is playing Rudy Boesch from CBS' Survivor I

    I can imagine the Puck-ster suing Spike TV if/when he gets a whiff of this.

    I don't get it. I think up funnier stuff than that daily.

    But thrn again, the common denominator is so sad that people think that sad Adam Sandler is funny and that Soufly is music. :rolleyes:

    Ya know, this show wouldn't be on if it didn't have something that's watchable. It's just not watchable to some, or our time is taken with things like OT or other forums at TalkBass.com.


    Which is about the coolest thing besides gigging, rehearsal, practicing, or some related function in the realm of music, IMO.

    Maybe if I was you age, Nick, I'd find it funny.

    As it is, reality shows have become spoofs of themselves and, for my taste, they beat the gags into the ground where they become more tiring than funny.

    Sorry for bringing this back from the undead-

    I watched a couple shows and-
    I'm thinking Matt AKA "Joe Schmo" is actually setting up the other players/actors...& maybe even the lower level producers/writers/directors.

    The "Immunity Challenge" when each player was supposed to keep a part of their body in-contact with a nekkid stripper. The show had it set up so Joe & the Puck-wannabe would be the last two competitors.
    So-
    "Joe" is the first one to quit(sez he wanted a bed to himself)...so, I'm supposed to believe this All-American red-blooded male is gonna remove his left hand from a nekkid stripper's
    right breast?!
    C'mon.
