    Another reason to hate television

    NBC recruits Blagojevich for 'Celebrity'

    Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has made a deal to star in NBC's upcoming summer reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here, the network confirms.

    "Rod Blagojevich will be a participant on the show pending the court's approval," said NBC in a statement.

    NBC has been looking for household names for its version of the U.K. hit, which launches June 1. With NBC taking the unusually intensive step of airing the show four nights a week at 8 p.m. for nearly a month, a successful launch could help fuel the network's entire summer schedule.

    According to the Chicago Tribune, Blagojevich's attorney told a federal judge Tuesday that he will file a request to loosen his client's travel restrictions to participate in the show, which will be shot in Costa Rica. Blago was indicted April 1 on 16 counts -- 11 counts of wire fraud, three of extortion, one of racketeering and one of lying to federal investigators. He has plead not guilty.

    Given Blagojevich's notoriety following his arrest on federal corruption charges, he's bound to garner some curiosity tune-in for the network. Celebrity is produced by Granada, which signed the governor for the show pending the court's approval.

    Official Celebrity description: "Ten celebrities of various backgrounds will be dropped into the heart of the Costa Rican jungle to face challenges designed to test their skills in adapting to the wilderness and to raise money for their favorite charities."

    What's his skill? Buy off the other contestants????

    NO WAY do watch any of that so-called "reality" game show crap, Blagojevich or no Blagojevich.

    I watch a lot of TV, but I have switched almost entirely to Nat Geo, History, and Science channels.

    The wall-to-wall game and reality shows every night on network TV already suck, so the only network shows I watch regulary these days are Cops, Law & Order, and AMW. Southland looks promising, and I watch 60 Minutes just to see what the liberal news reporters are skewing.

    Yet another reality show I'll never catch an episode of. I'll wait for the movie.
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army
