It is Only a Matter of Time Before the American Gladiators Start Killing People

The NYT reviews Fox's new Orwellian nightmare:

"The Colombian version was canceled in October after a woman confessed on the show that she had hired someone to kill her husband."

"“The Moment of Truth,” though, brings loved ones onstage to stir up hostility. On Wednesday’s premiere George, a racetrack marketing manager, was solemnly asked by the host, Mark L. Walberg, if he wears a hairpiece (yes), whether he had ever had a sexual fantasy while attending Mass (yes) and whether he has a gambling problem (yes) — as his boss, his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s uncle looked on."
