'Extreme Musical Chairs' Heading to The CW?

by Chris Harnick, posted Sep 22nd 2011 2:30PM
The CWThe CW is reportedly at work on a new reality show: 'Extreme Musical Chairs.' Really.

According to Variety, the series will take the children's game -- you know, running around a circle of chairs until the music stops, with each person sitting down except the one unlucky player who doesn't have a chair -- to new "physically demanding" lengths.

The show, from Gurin Co. and 405 Prods., may include multiple rounds on an indoor obstacle course. Sounds like 'Wipe Out' meets ... chairs?

The project's format was created by Phil Gurin, Richard Joel and Deena Dill. Gurin's other reality productions include 'Shark Tank' and 'The Singing Bee.'

This is outside The CW's normal reality/unscripted fare, which normally features fashion models and celebrities. The premise is a bit silly, but 'Wipe Out' has been a solid performer for ABC. Given how poorly 'H8R' has been performing -- both with viewers and critics -- a change for The CW would be smart.

Would you watch 'Extreme Musical Chairs'?

The people that puts on these stupid shows are one thing, but the mindless idiots that watch and helps keep them on, is the real problem ! And then you have them paid programs and tons of commercials ! I'm not paying good money for cable to watch that crap !

Name one, just one, "REALITY" show. While there may be some "reality" in those shows, most of it is rehearsed, staged, spliced and edited.

They are so much fun, we gladly give up our movies, sports, documentaries, news etc. etc. to watch just one more.

Yeeeahh, right

Really!! Really?? REALLY!!?!!
I think I would rather shave my entire body then sit in a bathtub of witch hazel.
I guess THE CW cannot find a suitable replacement for the departing WWE.
What next? Tournament Tiddlywinks??

America hates these so called reality shows. Nothing reality about them. They are very ignorant and only appeal to very ignorant people. What has happened to wholesome programs that our children can watch.Now its all about mouthy abusive women abuseing men and fathers or tattooed morons. Its sick.

All this = is a few guests with large breast who make them bounce.
Of course though people will watch it just to see that on occasion.

Thething these idiots haven't figured out is that there is nothing real about "reality" shows. How come the TV audience can see yhis and the people putting this junk on the air can't?

I think that all reality shows are the most rediculous things on earth. I watch shows to escape from reality. Can't you come up with shows that do not cause us to get nausiated?

Can we put a bullet in this genre and bury it for good? Seriously, I guess if idiots can watch the Kardashians and Snooky, this should be a hit for the CW. Can't be any worse than any of the Houswives shows.

Buckle up and get comfy as, like it or not, Reality TV has far from run its course at this point.

I read in an Alaskan newspaper article that TLC has a 2-part "series" starring Sarah Palin's hairdresser. SURELY this is a joke. Someone please tell me it's a joke. Lie if you have to.
