Great Genius

It's called Conned. Take 10 convicted con artists, and the first one to make one million dollars wins. Anything goes.

Also, another show called Believer. 10 people have to start their own religions. Whoever get the most "love gifts" wins, with extra points for funeral protests, or military-type seiges from the government.

Oh wait, that already happened.

Natural Selection! People running around a city lobbying grenades at each other..ok so i stole this idea from grand theft auto. I'm sure they could do a less violent version of it though :)

It's called "Live Off the Government".

The contestants have to submit as many false applications for assistance and Social Security disabilities as possible, to a group of five eligibility workers, who have only 20 minites to review each application to determine if it is true, false, or they don't care enough to question. The contestant that gets the most benefits before being found as a fraud wins.

It's based on a true story.

just taking a break from reading the ideas... personally I think reality shows are evil.
I have pitched and yes, it's a weird interview/sales experience. The guys who dress in old rags to show they're important artistic movers and shakers - as you sweat in your Friday night best outfit - that's seriously rude. And yes, it's always guys - no female could or would go into a business setting with such a slovenly attitude. Yet another reason why they will rule the world very, very soon....

"She's a man!" A bachelorette dating show where men compete for a really beautiful woman who has a little secret. Of course the competitors don't know that the woman in question is a he.

Zoctar (july 19th, 9:04pm): Ray Martin fights a pig was from an episode of the Glass House. Very funny, but not entirely origional =p

Michael

We take a childless couple and 25 orphans and have the kids compete to be adopted! Just imagine the highly emotional and heartwrenching "elimination" scenes where each week a child is told "you're not wanted"! (As this is incredibly poor taste, I almost fear some network honcho getting this idea for real)

["Its called 'My God is the True God'. Each week you pit one religion vs another. For example, one week you could have a Jew and a Muslim holding 20 iron rods while standing on an open hill, 100 feet apart, during a lightning storm. We let God decide their fate." - DanW]

This would be fun to watch as well. And that "Russian Roulette" of yours isn't bad either...

McGurker

It's called "Non-Refundable"

Each contestant has several hundred dollars to spend on items at a flea market. After buying the items, they have to see how many they can sell to people on the street, whoever gets the most money back wins, extra points for convincing someone to buy something you got for free or found on the ground.

It's called "Reality TV". It's a show where TV executives, agents, writers and directors sit down and discuss a pitch for a reality television show that's about executives, agents, writers and directors who sit down and discuss a pitch for a reality television show, which is about executives, agents, writers and directors who sit down and discuss a pitch for a reality television show...

How about this!

A show called "Beat the Rap." A bunch of rappers, as well as some actors, football players and hotel heiresses, commit as many crimes as they possibly can to make sure that they get our attention. They drive drunk, do drugs, crash cars, pack heat, take steroids, operate dog-fighting games, and sc***w anything that moves. Then, they have to try to convince the judge that they didn't do it so they can get out of jail.

There could also be another reality show about people who lie about everything so they can convince 300 million Americans to let them run the country.

Politically Incorrect

"It's Legal"

A 24 hour constest to see who can do the most politically incorrect but legal activities. Get drunk, smoke a smelly cigar, have an abortion, buy a gun, shoot a species not quite yet endangered, eat trans fats from a styrofoam container and dump it in a non-federally protected lake.

It's called "Green Acres" -- Imagine survivor but on an actual working dairy farm in rural Wisconsin. For the 5th season the contestants live and work on an Amish farm.

Kevin Kunreuther

Whoa! One of the writers from a major online newsmagazine wants to collaborate with me on my idea and pitch it to the networks. Do you want me to keep you updated on the progress of this?

Gary Watson

It's called "Inhuman Resources" -- the show follows the HR department of an evil corporation, as they devise patronizing "morale boosters" and otherwise abuse the hapless employees. Simultaneously, we follow a group of bloodsucking labor lawyers as they secretly prepare a lawsuit against the same company.

Since HR people are sociopaths and thus lack the empathy to know that they are the butt of the joke, I anticipate no trouble finding HR departments to volunteer for the show.

Gary Watson

It's called "American Virtuoso" -- contestants are presented with ancient or unusual musical instruments, which they have one hour to learn how to play, and then perform a series of songs. Celebrity judges push a buzzer if a bad note is struck, and the contestant must chug a shot of hard liquor before continuing the song. The worst performers from each round are eliminated, and the best scorers continue to the next round after drinking more shots -- the catch is that the better you do, the more shots you have to do before the next round.

Super slo-mo cameras are set up to catch the projectile vomit.

The instruments might be ancient ones like a digiridoo, or might be made-up ones like different sized toilet plungers in a row of toilets.

You put the wrong name on my post "New York Gallery" July 20 5:24AM and put my name on somebody else's.

That's Entertainment

It's called "The Aristorcats"
Each week a new family presents their version of the old joke. It's on cable, so anything goes.

Survivor Antarctica.... Anything goes.... after two weeks of introducing you to the cast they start the show by crashing the plane into the ice. Half of them, gone.... Just picture it anorexic girls clubbing baby seals for food... the tribe turning in to savages and mauling the camera man for meat.... Talk about ratings!!!

"Beat the Adam" - pit candidates against Scott Adams in a series of contests testing their wits. (Inspired by the German show "beat the Raab").

CraigS

I don't exactly have a name for my idea yet. It combines "deal or no deal" and "who wants to be a millionaire." There are cases with varying amounts of money in them. The contestant is asked questions, and after each question they open a case. If they got the question wrong, the amount in the case is subtracted from their score, if they get it right, the money is added. They lose if they go into negative numbers, and can quit at any time.

The Laurel and Hardy dating game:

Two guys one skinny and short another fat have to get a date each. We could make one of them gay in some episodes.
