If You're Not Watching The NBA Finals You Can Watch D-List Celebrities Race Cars Tonight!

Thursday, June 07, 2007

This has to be the dumbest idea for a show just about ever, but ABC has a new reality show (I can't remember if I mentioned this before, and I'm too lazy to check). 12 "Celebrities" will be competing in some kind of time trial....

The show will explore the interaction of top young stock car drivers with stars from the world of sports, music and entertainment, featuring drama and competition on and off the race track. In each episode, viewers will watch celebrities train with a Gillette Young Guns driver. The show will culminate in an exciting finale where the celebrities will be coached from the pits by their Gillette Young Guns instructors and compete against each other during a time-trial race.
So who are the celebrities you ask? (And I'm glad you did).....

William Shatner
Tony Hawk
Krista Allen
Ty Murray (Rodeo dude)
John Salley
John Elway
John Cena
Serena Williams
Gabby Reece
Laird Hamilton
Bill Cowher

The six drivers that are helping the stars are: Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Newman, Carl Edwards, Kasey Kahne, Kurt Busch and Jamie McMurray.

And the best part of the whooooooole thing....your announcers are.....


That right there is a recipe for success my friends.

Constant ridicule by Kenny Mayne brings this to just above "FAIL".

i was actually thinking of checking this out (yes, i loathe the non-basketball association like a stomach flu). notice the past tense?

right when i read kenny mayne was an announcer. i think i may be the lone person in the united states that doesn't get kenny mayne (and i love dry humor). i think this guy is about as funny as a fractured leg.

memo to mayne: you are not stephen wright. give it up.

Was this live? If it was, why the hell isn't Nascar analyst and Cavs legend (what a duo), Brad Daugherty, watching the game!!!

It's not live, this was taped several months ago. The concept is inherently flawed anyway.

Part of the reason viewers watch reality competition shows in the first place is to see the interaction and conflict of the competitors.

With these racing time trials though, the celebs don't even have to meet each other. What's the point?

I think the country is ready for a reality show called Celebrity Poop-Off.
