Miss America begging to come back to TV

by David Thomas, posted Apr 25th 2005 12:04PM
Miss AmericaThe country isn't that interested in beauty pageants anymore. The Miss America pageant only drew 9.8 million viewers in 2004 leading ABC to dump the annual catwalk for 2005. Now the show is looking for a TV home and is using the William Morris agency to sell it. Fear Factor had lead-in episodes for Miss USA but those stunts have actually had higher ratings than the show itself. Some folks would rather see an end to Miss America than have the contestants eat cow intestines or hold their breath in a box filled with scorpions. We agree.

Fear FactorThe mad scientists at Sony are - cue ominous music - coming up with a technology that will enable TV viewers and video gamers to actually smell and taste the show they are watching or the game they are playing, and not just the old fashioned see and hear combo.

Fear FactorWe joke about the stupidity of Fear Factor, but one of the show's stunts helped save a woman from drowning during a flash flood. The veteran corrections officer was caught in a flash flood in California and remembered a rerun of Fear Factor where contestants had to escape a submerged car. She knew how to roll down an automatic window instead of opening the doors. She credits the show with saving her life. And no she wasn't wearing a bathing suit.

Porn or Fear Factor?

Fear FactorAgain I was channel surfing earlier this week and came across a babe in a bikini being drowned in some sort of contraption. What the f...oh it's “Fear Factor.” I should have known. This is one of those shows that boggles my mind. It seems to be babes and gross food every week and rarely strays from that formula. Yet the show is still extremely popular. Oh well.
