An Exorcism Reality Show?
Apparently the Discovery Channel is teaming up with the Vatican to produce a series showcasing exorcism. The Huffington Post is calling it a "Reality Show", but I am not sure why. The description of the show does not include sticking ten people in a room and observing them go through demonic fits while Simon Cowell critiques there contortions and viewers call-in to vote participants off the show. Here is the description.
It sounds more like a combinations of Leonard Nemoy's 1970's show In Search Of. and COPS. But I have to admit that the idea of an Exorcism Reality show sounds a lot more entertaining.
Anybody want to suggest a theme song for the new series?
Bad demon, bad demon, what ya gonna do? What ya gonna do when they expel you?
