Interactive Drunk TV? Dude, I'm So Buzzed!
From the mindless-competitive-reality-TV-entertainment desk comes news of a new, web-only, drunken trivia game show to be launched this spring by Endemol and Metacafe. Way to stick to that lowest common denominator, guys.
Video-sharing site Metacafe is hooking up with Endemol, the producer of such shows like Deal or No Deal, to create a TV-style game show by the name of Buzzed that will feature a host asking impromptu trivia questions to people around the country as they leave bars and nightclubs. And in a twist on the “lifeline” from Who Wants to be a Millionaire, participants can “drunk dial” a friend to help answer a question. [...]
According to Variety, Buzzed is scheduled to launch this spring, with one to two new episodes running each week. Each episode will only be a couple minutes long, presumably because the contestants will be “Wooo! On Spring Break! I’m so wasted. Hold on. Hold on. No, YOU answer a trivia question. Am I on TV?”
