Hole in the Wall

Do you remember when you could tell the difference between reality tv shows and parodies of reality tv shows? FOX announced the show Hole in the Wall today, a game show that involves nothing more than people trying to jump through differently shaped holes in a styrofoam wall that will knock them into a pool if they don't make it.

It's based on the japanese gameshow from several years ago.
I also hear from a friend of mine who works at Fox that there may be an American version of Sasuke (known as Ninja Warrior).

Have you seen the show? It's some of the best stuff on YouTube.

I was able to catch this show when I was flipping channels in France. Funny enough we ended up watching it till the end. Its such a weird game show, I only seen them ever get one combination in the show.

I wonder why they didn't call it "Holes of Glory"?

when are they going to do an american version of the japanese show where you have to run on a treadmill and eat stuff? and if you don't run fast enough you end up in a pool? too many choking hazards, perhaps?

my vote is for the one where girls stick their heads through holes in what appears to be a trampoline and they let a large lizard loose. did i mention that the girls have pork chops on their heads?
