FOX reveals Joe Millionaire 2 twist.

FOX reveals Joe Millionaire 2 twist.
Joe Millionaire 2‘s big twist has been revealed by FOX: The women being courted will all be fame-seeking whores. “It’s so surprising because no one will expect that from a family network like FOX, where we report and you decide that we’re right, bitch,” a spokesperson said. Although the supply of fame-seeking whores is dwindling with the preponderance of similar shows, and of course every show on MTV, producers aren’t worried about casting the second season. “In addition to stealing the show concept from ABC, we also took some Bachelor applications from a guy’s desk,” a producer said. Having exhausted the world’s supply of overgrown apes with IQs lower than their shoe sizes, FOX’s short list for the next Joe includes Michael Jackson, Ari Fleischer, and Joan Rivers. And host Alex McLeod will return, digitally inserted into about 26 seconds of the new episodes, just like last season, which will allow her plenty of time to make Paige Davis voodoo dolls.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
