I don’t have cable, so if any of these already exist, I’m simply unaware of them. In fact, my lack of cable is probably the only reason why I have time to blog, bake, exercise…
1. 16 and Eggnant: Remember that home ec project where teenagers had to babysit an egg to prepare for parenthood? Make it happen. On TV.
2. Social Smack Down: Contestants must gain the most connections on a given networking site within a set time frame. Millennials have a handicap of only being able to text blindfolded.
3. Interviews Gone Wild: Feature candid footage of the worst interviews across all companies. Like the person who wears Tevas, or talks to himself. Not that I’ve ever seen that happen.
4. The Intern: Like Boiling Point only you’re putting up with insanely menial tasks for college credit. I was once asked to sit in the floor of a closet and fold t-shirts for four hours at a time, thanks #KISS-FM.
5. Return Round Up: You have to get a store to accept the return of a ludicrous item that wasn’t purchased at said store. Like, a garden hose at Victoria’s Secret. Or a dog at a shoe store.
6. Hold, Please: How long can you stay on the phone with a customer service rep? Ever seen the Seinfeld episode where Kramer puts the cable guy on hold?
7. Reality Now: A reality show about reality shows. And people trying to think of new ones. Like a hall of mirrors…
8. IKEA: You have to live in IKEA for a full year. You create a home in the store and eat only Swedish meatballs and schnitzel. The prize is (obviously) a fully furnished home.
9. Living Biblically: If you haven’t read the book, you should. I think it’d make a fascinating show. Especially when he throws stones at adulterers.
10. Celebrity PR: Take the most screwed up celebrities (cough, Charlie Sheen, cough, Lindsey Lohan) and watch as the world’s finest PR practitioners are challenged with revamping their images.
