The guys at Chattahbox feel the same way, calling it "another really bad idea, where a network desperate for TV ratings sinks to a new low."
We think David Zuwarik at Z on TV is being sarcastic in his take on the show -- and the genre:
"Isn't reality TV great? Fox is going to make a show out of people getting fired in the recession. Spike TV is going to "hunt" pirates with the U.S. Navy. And now comes disgraced former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich hoping to join the D-list cast of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here. "
"Every week someone new: Harry Reid selling blond hair dye door-to-door in Japan, Joy Behar going through vow-of-silence training in a Nepalese monastery, Jackie Mason presiding over six-party talks with puzzled North Koreans, Rahm Emanuel in %&*$# vulgarity therapy, Billy Mays giving a sermon, Katie Couric doing a serious political interview, Rep. Ron Paul at a Las Vegas craps table with someone else's money. You get the idea."
