Okay, I'm having a great deal of trouble getting my mind around this. Really. This is even off the scale for reality TV. . .
In watching a youtube video I stumbled across the the promo for a show on ABC called Splash. Apparently the object of the show is for people, vaguely famous people apparently, to fall into pools of water. At first I laughed, but then it made me kind of quiet, and then it just made me sad.
Here's from the site:
"This ABC Series will show Celebrities perform complicated dives from various heights into an olympic size pool. Each contestant will be assisted by professional diving instructors during the show. The dives will be from heights as high as 10 meters with increasing levels of complexity, including somersaults, backflips, and other combinations."
Ahhh. Its just sad. The day of Cool is past, long, long past . . . .
