"Fresh, new programming"? WWE? Are you kidding?
That faux-sports-infomercial has been around since TV began and is perhaps the most worn out trash on TV today.
<in his best announcer voice> "Presenting the best of fictitious sports with a soap opera theme we now present the world champion Lex the Loser versus The Abominable Hunchback in a fight to the finish <lowers voice> which will be completed this Saturday evening at <insert name of local sports palace here> in a <raises voice once again> FIGHT TO THE FINISH <cut to bloody homeboy holding a huge belt with a K-Mart buckle as big as a cow's butt>. GIT YER TICKETS NOW!!!!!!
And here I thought "reality TV" was trash!
You know what I was talking about--it's not a reran TV show, nor a TV-edited movie.
Depending on the timeslot, I could definitely see Ion Television using Main Event as a lead-in
for those movies or shows, though.
