Summer Replacement Series

It's been a while since I've done one of these.

The Invoice
Contestants sing copyrighted material without a licensing agreement, while the judges argue how much it's going to cost them.

So You Think You're a Dunce
100 contestants are asked simple questions and get eliminated if they answer correctly. "Let's see what Janie says. She says the capital of Kansas is 'K.' Judges? And Janie goes on to the next round."

American Ginger Warrior
Red haired contestants work their way through an obstacle course which includes such challenges as going outside without sunblock and sitting through a Tyler Perry movie.

Extreme Makeover, Personality Edition
We asked Donald Trump about his episode, but he declined to answer, as he doesn't think anyone's really interested in his opinion. [We need this show. Now.]

and finally, from the makers of "Who Do You Think You Are?" comes:
What's the Big Idea?
You and What Army?
Did You Think I Wouldn't Notice?
and every other question girlfriends have asked me that sounds like it came from the 1930's.

And since it's National Doughnut Day and the Olympics are coming:

I just about spit my drink all over the computer when I got to the Tyler Perry line. :)

The Belushi clip is an absolute classic!
