Screw "Deal Or No Deal"

This is the most exciting news I've heard in awhile. Any regular peruser of the interwebs has undoubtedly witnessed the splendor of Japanese game shows. Finally, an American network has wised up - and you just knew it had to be FOX.


The TV phenomenon sweeping the globe is finally making its way to American television! Hole In The Wall (a.k.a. HUMAN TETRIS) is the most downloaded Japanese game show ever on the net. Now FremantleMedia, the company behind American Idol, is looking for trios (friends, co-workers, spouses, etc) to take part in one of the most outrageous, funny, and challenging game shows ever seen on television!

Here is a clip of Hole In The Wall along with a couple other shows that I hope make it over here (especially the last one).

If only this one were real:

The best part of the human tetris is seeing the expressions when they first see what's coming.

What's the last one called? "Who wants to be a eunuch?"
