producers say there will be a Joe Schmo sequel; audience grew by 61 percent.
Since the premiere of Spike TV’s The Joe Schmo Show “has grown 61% since the premiere in September, and talks about a second season are underway,” the New York Daily News reports. Producers are looking for a way to create a sequel; “We will find another Joe Schmo,” cocreator Paul Wernick says. How’d they find even one guy so willing to be manipulated? Not through auditions which attract every media whore on both sides of the Mississippi. Instead, producers “went into the field to find people not searching for the exposure.” That gave the show “the most real reality show contestant that anyone has ever seen on a reality show,” Wernick says. The eighth of 10 episodes airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET.
