Proving you can fail up in Hollywood


From the Futon Critic:

In a bold scheduling move, "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!," based on the international hit from Granada America, will debut as a two-hour television event on Monday, June 1 (8-10 p.m. ET) and will be stripped over four weeks in June.

Didn't they try that on another network 6 years ago to disastrous results? the show was a huge bomb. Yes it works in Europe - but so does ___ (damn I wish i was witty). It also kills time. Like "Big Brother" - a show people watch - it can eat up hours of network time. But if no one wants to see HIACGMOOHUSA2 then you are stuck with empty time slots - just like that other network was stuck with.
