The apocalypse won't just be televised, it will be a competition

The NYT has an article on a new Style Network show called [furreal] "Craft Corner Deathmatch." David, please inform Mr. Tivo of this alarming development.

...crafting and grudge-match pro wrestling may end up more closely entwined in the public imagination after tomorrow night, when the Style Network introduces "Craft Corner Deathmatch," an unconventional game show in which two amateur crafters go head to head in timed trials, trying to make the best pillow out of old couch fabric or a brooch using only candy.

It does make some sense. I have always thought that glue guns were just covert expression of violent housewife urges.

We think the "Deathmatch" brand has real potential. We're inviting anyone with ideas for new "Deathmatch" shows (Meet the Press Deathmatch, Jerry Lewis Telethon Deathmatch, etc.) to post 'em on our site. The way things are going, some of the ideas will certainly turn up in the fall TV listings.
