Just in case you needed another reason to park yourself in front of the boob tube: Satellite TV provider DISH Network, along with Oberon Media and the Tetris Company, has announced the launch of an interactive game service called Tetris TV.

Here's how it stacks up: For $2.99 a month, the new service allows DISH Network customers to play the addicting video game on their television sets with their remote controls, for hours and hours (and hours) on end.

Hole in the WallOne of my regular blog haunts is the game show news site BuzzerBlog, and when I logged into it today and saw this post, I couldn't believe my eyes: FOX and Fremantle Media are apparently putting together an American version of the popular Japanese game show Hole in the Wall. I was so flabbergasted that I had to see who else reported on it; sure enough, it was right there in Variety for all to see.

Basically, it's a game of human Tetris: contestants have to bend themselves into the shape of a cutout on a fast-approaching wall. If they do it in time, they go through the wall.

Japanese human Tetris game show - VIDEO

japanese tetrisJapanese television makes American television look sleepy. Especially their game shows. I don't even know the official name for this game show, but it's essentially a human version of Tetris. Big walls of styrofoam come flying at contestants who have to contort their bodies to fit through the shape in the wall, or be pushed into a pool of yellow water. It's sort-of like Tetris. I've attached a four-minute clip to this post. For some of those challenges, I have no idea how a human body would get through the space (I think that's the point).

I want on this game show more than I want on The Price is Right.

Video is after the jump:
