Joe Schmo Show concludes tonight.
Last week’s The Joe Schmo Show was preempted by the GQ Awards, but the show officially ends tonight with a two-hour finale that begins at 9 p.m. ET. Spike TV’s teaser for the finale says “Don’t miss the first 15 minutes!” Matt Gould finally talks to the media, telling Entertainment Weekly that on the show, he “found nine new friends.” Elsewhere, while plans for a second season of the show are apparently underway, a Boston Globe critic says that Spike TV “should take a lesson from the floundering second round of Joe Millionaire, another ‘let’s con the contestants’ show, and quit while it’s ahead.”
