Myths and Legends hits TV Land this Wednesday

myths and legendsThis Wednesday, January 10 at 10pm TV Land will debut a new series called Myths and Legends. The series will supposedly uncover the truth behind such urban legends as Mama Cass' death by ham sandwich, the hanging Munchkin from the Wizard of Oz, and Walt Disney's frozen head.

I only see one problem with this new show: it's completely unnecessary. A lot of the stuff this show plans to cover has already been covered before by other TV specials, and folks who were curious about these things have already investigated with the help of sites like Snopes.com. I'm usually a big fan of TV Land's original shows -- hell, I even liked I Pity the Fool, but someone tell me how this show made it to the air? Do I really want to sit and watch a show that tells me things I already know?

Okay, I won't completely dismiss a show I've yet to see. Maybe they'll approach these old rumors in a cool and refreshing way, but the premise alone feels more than a little stale.

Did you take Gunsmoke off the air, or did you move it somewhere else? I think it is one of the best programs you have. I hope you didn't take it off the air.
Thank You

I did a lot of commentary for this show, which is being done just like a VH-1 "I love the last five minutes" special. If the stuff I did is any indication of the tone they hope to give the show, it should be humorous and more than a little irreverent.
