Let's Make a Reality TV Show About Torture!

I really wish the reality TV craze would go away. It's hitting rock bottom with this dumbass idea from the UK's Channel Four:

A British TV channel is preparing “Guantanamo Guidebook,” a show that will test the effectiveness of interrogation techniques like sleep deprivation which freed inmates say were used by the U.S. military at its camp in Cuba.

Channel Four, which brought the world reality TV hit “Big Brother,” will film seven British volunteers as they are subjected to extreme temperatures and mild physical contact while being kept awake for long periods.

The techniques are based on information from declassified U.S. government documents, and will be carried out by expert interrogators from the United States, a Channel Four spokesman said, declining to provide additional details.

Thank God Chris Noth is coming to Law and Order: Criminal Intent in his L&W role as Detective Mike Logan. A brief wisp of normalcy on the insane tube.
