In an effort to see how many 50 year-old men they can get to reach for the remote in disgust while mumbling about who puts this crap on the air, the CW has greenlit a musical chairs game show, which we initially reported was titled Extreme Musical Chairs. So now, the CW brings you Oh, Sit!, which is cute enough to make you momentarily smile and forget how f*cking stupid this show is going to be. This idea seriously had to have been picked up off the floor of the Portlandia writers’ room.

After four months, the producers decided that while a game show depicting games of musical chairs was still an excellent, excellent idea, the name “Extreme Musical Chairs” didn’t really shift the paradigm or speak to Joe Six-Pack. As such, they decided that the name should speak to a Joe Six-Pack, provided that Joe Six-Pack belonged to a Williamsburg softball league and that six pack was made up of Pabst tall boys.

Having all but thrown in the towel in the battle against cable channels for quality programming, the CW is working on developing Extreme Musical Chairs, a reality TV competition that will incorporate physically demanding challenges in a multiple elimination tournament set on an indoor course.

Wow. I’m already bored with this program, and it hasn’t even been made yet.

I guess they could use this concept as a pulpit for new musical acts, but let’s face it, it’s going to be Bruno Mars, Cage the Elephant, and Drake.

This show demonstrates the initiative undertaken by the station to appeal to a broader audience, with most of their previous reality programming towards “young femmes” (that’s marketing speak for “girls”) with an emphasis on fashion and celebs. So dumb girls. The channel was marketing previous programs to dumb girls. Now they’re reaching out with Extreme Musical Chairs, programming that can be appreciated by dumb everyone.
