'Panic Attack' Pilot Ordered by Fox

FOX has ordered a new reality series called 'Panic Attack'For some time now, reality shows have been a bit, shall we say, bland. Plenty of talking, gossiping and backstabbing, but very little action. It makes one miss the days of stepping into a tank full of leaches or having a meal comprised of caterpillar with a side order of maggots.

Well, FOX may be doing something about that.

The network has ordered a new pilot called 'Panic Attack.' Produced by 'Hell's Kitchen' and 'Kitchen Nightmares' production company A. Smith & Co., the show will feature five contestants with the same phobia. With the help of a pair of therapists (the U.K.'s Nick and Eva Speakman), the quintet of participants will try to overcome their fears. Look for potential episodes focusing on fear of heights, snakes, tight spaces and aglets.

There's a rumor that a group of FOX representatives will appear on the show in order to break their fear of producing a decent scripted comedy. (Fingers crossed they bring in those who greenlit ''Til Death.') Another group will try to get rid of the discomfort they feel when trying to find a new late-night talk show.

Ryan SeacrestAre you a "momma's boy"? Or are you a mother who is really overprotective about who your son dates? Well, if you are, you might want to try out for Ryan Seacrest's (American Idol) and Andrew Glassman's (Average Joe) new show Momma's Boys. NBC's new reality series will air after the Summer Olympics in Bejing. The show will center around a group of mothers choosing the perfect woman for their sons. According to the press release, "drama ensues when numerous mothers and their eligible bachelor sons are housed together with several single women." So, they have to live together too? This sounds like The Bachelor meets Sister Patterson from I Love New York.

New E! show goes behind the scenes of a tanning salon

E! logoI have an idea for a new reality show. It's called Lemonade Stand, and it will be a behind the scenes look at what really goes on in the cutthroat world of lemonade stands in small town America. You'll see the infighting that happens when one kid forgets to bring enough cups for the customers, you'll see what happens when a dollar seems to be missing from the money box, and you'll see the emotional toll the business takes on the kids when their mom says it's time to close up because it's getting dark out.

Sound far-fetched? Not really. E! has a new reality show starting May 28 called Sunset Tan, which will show what happens to people who work at a tanning salon. Gah.

I'm thinking there will be a lot of opportunities to show blondes in bikinis. The show debuts after the season premiere of The Simple Life at 10pm.

Coming soon to reality TV: dancing pets!

Animal PlanetGah. This really has to mean that reality TV shows are starting to run out of ideas. (Of course, I think I said the same thing six months ago.)

Former Saved By The Bell star Mario Lopez will host a new show on Animal Planet called Dancing Pet Stars, where humans will dance with pets and be judged a la American Idol.

Wow. Is there really anything else to say about this show? I didn't think so.
