Fox News has always been a pioneer in entertainment and their latest reality show ‘Somebody’s Gotta Go’ (that would telecast lay-offs live) just takes the bar higher.
Each episode will feature a company with about 15 or 20 employees that needs to cut costs because of the economy. Instead of the boss deciding who is fired, the company will open its books to show everyone’s salaries and let the employees make the call.
I personally disagree with classifying just one show on Fox News as a reality show; it is just too unfair to all their other programmes.
Closer home, I hope someday we too revolutionalize reality shows. Since mashups are the order of the day, I propose a reality show that would even put The Truman Show to shame. For ease, the protagonist of the show would be Rakhi Sawant, given her superior skills in looking and sounding so real. Skeptics are always going to say that her demeanour, fights, talks and body parts are all fake; but I have a philosophical rant on ‘reality’ to silence them. Without digressing further, this is my show :
Rakhi chooses her future husband in Rakhi Ka Swayamvar, they get married in another reality show, their kids are born in a third. A baby boy can proceed to Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil’ Champs, Indian Kid Idol or Star Voice of India Kids; we select where he goes through SMSes (meta-reality show, you see) while the baby girl dances in Nach Baliye Kids’ Special or Jhalak Dikhla Ja. As Rakhi gets older, she follows the great Indian tradition of going on a pilgrimage .. MTV Roadies, if I may suggest. She might think that this would pave the stairway to heaven, but she doesn’t know that after she dies, she is going to be put in a room with other spirits and we get to choose who goes to heaven.
What a beautiful world it would be.
The Congress has bought the rights to the Oscar winning song from Slumdog Millionaire, ‘Jai Ho’.
Seeing new promise in the runaway success of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, Congress has acquired the exclusive rights of the film’s number, ‘Jai Ho’ for the summer campaign. According to sources, the party has secured the rights of both the lyrics and tune of the hit number for use in its campaign for the general election.
@Congress : Just to give you some heads up. The middle portion of Jai Ho which no one understands, that is not Italian. It is Spanish. So much for your dreams of impressing the party high command.
Meanwhile, BJP is working on a Haar Ho jingle. I kid you not.
Apparently, this general election is going to be judged by the Indian Idol judges.
Can we just call this the Indian Idol and get rid of those irritating reality shows ?
