Before we even get any further, let’s answer the question: is Killer Karaoke hosted by Steve-O the best show of all time? No. The best show of all time is The Sopranos. (The Wire is a close almost-tie, but at the end of the day when you are deciding what is the best TV show of all time it comes down to which is better at being an actual TV show, rather than which is the most fascinating but uneven portrait of brutal aspects of the American drug trade. OK, Christopha?) But Killer Karaoke hosted by Steve-O is almost certainly the best show premiering this Friday on Tru TV. Ugh, that is such damp praise considering how much I enjoy the preview clip of this show and am looking forward to the show. It looks amazing! I don’t really want to give too much away, but just try to imagine a show in which regular people are singing karaoke in front of a live studio audience, and then some other stuff happens but they do their best to keep singing, and the whole time Steve-O is standing right next to them holding their elbow as if to keep them from escaping, or dropping dead. You’ll see.
AHHHHHHHHH. HAHAHAHAHA. So good. Definitely the best Fear Factor of all time but it is even more than that. Congratulations, Tru TV, whatever you are. (Via Interweber.)
