FoxTV has reached a new all-time low. I couldn't find an official site, but here's the listing over at tvgrid.com. "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire" is an upcoming special where a single guy will pick from one of 50 women, and get legally married by the end of the program. This one is pathetic all around; for the freak going on TV to pick his wife in a matter of 2 hours, the 50 women lining up to marry a man for his money, and for Fox pulling such a lame ratings stunt.

I heard about the concept of this show a few weeks ago, and I laughed out loud. Those two hours of television will establish a new benchmark for the most disgusting idea ever willfully brought to fruition by a large group of consenting adults. Sometimes humanity makes me cry.

My wife hadn't heard about the show, so when they ran the commercial last night she was deeply offended. "That's like something straight out of Japanese Television" she said. Now on the one hand, you have to wonder what kind of idiot wants to announce to the entire nation that she's such a friggin golddigger that she'll compete on national television to marry a multi-millionaire sight unseen - but then you think about the people who go on shows like Jerry Springer to expose their pathetic lives without even a *shot* at millions of dollars.

MORE PATHETIC:
    Greedy Woman competing to marry multimillionaire
    Multimillionaire who has to resort to a game show to get a wife
You be the judge.

Hey! Come on now! It's not like he's doing it in one hour, this is two.

"Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish each other until death parts you?"

"I do."

"Is that your final answer?"

Is there a consolation prize and if so what slimy pit do you get to drag it from?
