Kill Reality, Again

The latest fun reality show concept:

Several former TV stars will participate in a new reality show in which they will perform the job they pretended to do on their former shows.

Back to the Grind, which will debut next month in the US, will have WKRP in Cincinnati's Loni Anderson working in a radio station, Hanging with Mr. Cooper's Mark Curry coaching a high school basketball team, and The Jeffersons' Sherman Hemsley working in the dry-cleaning business.

Other stars who have signed up for the show include Night Court's Harry Anderson, CHiPs' Erik Estrada, Good Times' Jimmie Walker, and St. Elsewhere's Ed Begley, Jr.

It would only watch this show if it also had Alan Alda really going to war, Scott Bakula really traveling through time and leaping into other people's bodies, and Harry Hamlin really being a lawyer.

How can Harry Anderson be a judge when he isn't one? I could see Bull being a bailiff, but...

They're missing the obvious one - parachute Kiefer Sutherland into Northern Pakistan with instructions to "handle it."

Compelling television that also protects America - let's see "The Singing Bee" do that.

Actually, let's not see "The Singing Bee."
