They might be Armed, but are they really Famous?
There are several things that bother me about the new CBS show Armed & Famous, which debuts this Wednesday at 8pm. One, it's another damn reality show. I've truly reached my breaking point with these shows, especially ones that are just gimmicks and not teaching us anything new or providing something substantial at the end.
But the main reason I'm bothered about the show is this: the ads keep saying that the show is going to feature "real celebrities" going to work as real cops. Um...since when are people like Erik Estrada and "that guy from Jackass" real celebrities? Latoya Jackson? She has a weird brother. Jack Osbourne? He's the son of a weird father. The hot blonde chick is...um, who is she again?
Why didn't they get Roger Clinton to star, or maybe Frank Stallone? They too busy? So far, the only thing I've found amusing about this is the fact that Estrada just got into an argument with a guy who called him "Emilio Estevez."
In this day and age, if a reality show wants to be really different, they should get some real famous, real celebrities. I want to see Julia Roberts eating bugs. I want to see Brad Pitt arresting people for speeding. I want to see Johnny Depp get fired from Donald Trump.
