CBS has really outdone itself this time. Armed and Famous
, a reality show that will have no winner (except you, the audience!), shows us quasi-celebrities are trained to become cops. Or something like that. These "stars" are transported to Muncie, Indiana to undergo police training. Hilarity ensues.
To be fair, the advance word from critics on Armed and Famous
has been surprisingly positive. At best, we can hope for an enjoyable hour where the celebrities involved don't take themselves too seriously. The premise is admittedly ridiculous, but as long as it pokes fun at the Cops
formula, the potential is there. Here's a look at the five celebrities taking part in Armed and Famous
Best Known As: The Jackson sibling who is less famous than Tito.
Best Known As: The spawn of a well known bat-head eater.
Best Known As: Scantily-clad professional wrestler whose been ogled by millions of adolescent boys on their basement TVs.
Best Known As: CHiPS star who, somehow, is ever present on local television in Southern California. Really, it's astonishing how many commercials and infomercials the man appears in.
Best Known As: The token midget (or little person, whichever is PC) on Jackass
