Reality TV Concepts

Looking to kill some time? Then check out these crazy reality TV ideas! Every day I will add a new, probably over the top, concept for a reality TV show; I figure there is no way I can do much worse than what is already on TV. Remember, this all just for fun (unless of course one of my ideas is picked up by a television network, in which case I expect some compensation), so do not be offended by anything. Enjoy!

Shock Jock

Howard Stern is on the way out.  But who is going to take his place?  Who is going to be the next big thing?  Find out on Shock Jock.

This show is a perfect union of radio and television.  Contestants would compete for a job being the morning shock jock for a syndicated radio broadcast.  Competitions would be held each week to decide which two DJs would go to the elimination round and decide who stays on the show.  These competitions would include something like coming up with the best advertisements for companies who would endorse the radio show or doing the best radio-style  interview.  The winner of the competition would then pick their opponent for the elimination round.  The elimination round would pit the two DJs against each other in a head to head competition; the competition being that each DJ would get one morning during the week to put on a radio show.  The person who puts on the better radio show gets to stay; the other person is eliminated.  Viewers of the TV show/listeners of the radio show would be in charge of who put on the better radio show and would be the ones to vote off the weaker DJ.  

The elimination format would provide an interesting aspect to the game.  If a contestant throws the competition that leads to the elimination round, they have a chance of not being voted off by the viewers/listeners.  If they can succeed at this long enough, they have less competition towards the end of the show.  They would lack the experience of doing the radio show though.  Also, they might get picked by the winner of the competition leading to the elimination round, meaning they do not get to pick their own competition.  On the flip side, if a contestant wins the competition to go to the elimination round, they can pick their opponent, but they then stand the chance of being eliminated themselves if their opponent ends up putting on a better radio show.  If they win, however, it chalks one up for them in the experience column, presumably making the next time easier.  This format makes for a lot of different strategies to be tried.

Shock Jock!  Coming this fall!  (Well, it would be cool if it was at least.)
