Reality Roundup: 'Project Greenlight,' 'Law Firm,' 'Survivor'

14484__md_l-Read this funny interview with Matt Damon (left), in which he confirms that Project Greenlight is probably dead, unless PG‘s Feast is a hit at the box office. (It could hardly do worse than PG‘s Stolen Summer, which grossed a minuscule $119,841, or The Battle of Shaker Heights, which took in just $279,282.)

-If reality contestants can compete as singers and dancers, why not preachers? Potential new show Pulpit Masters would pit speakers against each other for sermon supremacy. ”People need some good programming that doesn’t make them feel violated,” one of the executive producers says.

-Who says MTV lacks innovation? It’s come up with a new way to publicize shows like Laguna Beach and My Super Sweet Sixteen: trailer-length promos.

-David E. Kelley may finally have warmed up to reality TV, but the feeling’s not mutual. After two episodes, NBC has dumped The Law Firm onto Bravo for the remainder of its run. The show joins Princes of Malibu and Last Comic Standing among reality series the networks have kicked downstairs to their basic-cable stepchildren.

-Velvet Revolver are pitching a reality show set at Snitch, a New York City nightclub owned in part by Scott Weiland and Duff McKagan.

-Canadian Ian MacKenzie is on a quest to end the Americans-only rule for Survivor contestants, so that he can someday be stranded in a remote location and starve on national television. He’s already garnered the endorsements of famous Survivor alums like Ethan and Jerri, who at the very least seem to admire his self-promotional shamelessness. Check out his website at, eh?

    Please stop using “eh” as a way to define Canadians. It is repulsive and is so over-used that it cannot be classified as a cheap laugh any longer.

    I hope people with eating disorders never take a look at the “before heroin” and “after heroin” photos of Scott Weiland. If they do, it might inspire weight watchers to hawk heroin as a weightloss drug…
    Seriously, what happened to that guy? He looks like a skeleton now!
    The Canadians continue to provide us cheap production space for our movies and low budget tv shows, most of our professional hockey players, and a good cross section of our science fiction actors. Until we can find a better country to move in next door, it’s in our interests to be nice to them.
