Hit or Miss

First FOX announces that they’re scrapping plans to crash a 747 in a special called “Jumbo Jet Crash: The Ultimate Safety Test.”  The new Fox Television Entertainment Group chairman says the network wants to reduce the amount of “addictive quick-fix” reality programs the network shows.  But then today, FOX announces a rip-off of ABC’s new game show called Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire, in which 50 women parade themselves around, vying for the hand in marriage to a wealthy bachelor.  Ick.  The only way this show could redeem itself in my eyes is if the women perform a medley of songs from GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, including “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend.”
