Things That Make Me Die Inside (Vol. 5)

Some things are so unbelievably offensive, they require no comment whatsoever. And with that — just in time for November sweeps, mind you — I give you a press release issued moments ago by the good folks at Fox. (Trust me, I only wish we were making this up.)

JUDITH REGAN’S EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH O.J. SIMPSON

“O.J. SIMPSON: IF I DID IT, HERE’S HOW IT HAPPENED”

TO AIR AS A TWO-PART SPECIAL ON FOX

Special to Air Over Two Nights:

Monday, November 27, and Wednesday, November 29

Over 10 years after he was tried for two murders in the "Trial of the Century" that captured the attention of the world, O.J. Simpson, in his own words, tells for the first time how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes. Noted publisher Judith Regan will talk with Simpson in a wide-ranging, no-holds-barred interview that will be the basis of a two-part special, O.J. SIMPSON: IF I DID IT, HERE’S HOW IT HAPPENED (working title), airing Monday, Nov. 27 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Wednesday, Nov. 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

The Simpson criminal and civil trials captivated people around theworld for a decade, and now no topics are off-limits — Simpson hasagreed to an unrestricted interview with Regan. In the two-part event,Simpson describes how he would have carried out the murders he hasvehemently denied committing for over a decade.

"This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. It’sthe definitive last chapter in the Trial of the Century," said MikeDarnell, Executive Vice President of Alternative Programming.

Although acquitted of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and RonGoldman, Simpson was later sued in civil court, found responsible forboth murders and ordered to pay $33.5 million in restitution to thefamilies of the victims. A decade later, Simpson has written a bookthat hypothetically describes how the murders would have beencommitted. If I Did It will go on sale Thursday, Nov. 30, under theREGAN imprint.

    This is just awful. That being said, you know I’m gonna watch.

  • Hmm…

    I’ll watch it, but won’t buy the book! O.J.AIN’T GETTIN NONE OF MY MONEY! Fox can have my ratings, but whatever.

  • Robin Freeman

    Oh. My. GOD!
    I’m not gonna watch it or buy it.
    Yuck-o-rama!

  • Fatima

    Wait? He’s telling us how he would have killed his wife? As if he is some sort of expert? ARE THERE MORE THAN TWO MURDERS OJ?

  • Laura

    Test.

  • Cliff

    Thank you Fox, for cancelling Arrested Development. At the time, I was so upset, but now it makes perfect sense. Quality programming has truly won out. Bravo.
    I feel dirty just reading about this.

  • Denise

    This is so beyond making me die inside………this makes me want to hunt down every idiot member of that jury and extract some rough justice! “If I did it”, my eye!
    On another note, I wonder how ol’ Fair and Balanced Bill O’Reilly feels about his network being assosciated with THAT crap?!?!?!

  • Kitty

    OJ should be torn apart by wolves. As should all Fox executives and Judith Regan. This makes me sick. How must poor Fred Goldman feel.

  • Cliff

    My question is, how does this “nudge nudge wink wink” interview spread over 2 hours? Since it’s FOX, I gotta figure that in between describing his “hypothetical” murder, he’ll also 1) show how magic tricks are done; 2) Invite 20 women with low self-esteem to compete to marry him; 3) Show off his full-body tattoo detailing every aspect of his cunning plan. If anyone sees me watching even a second of this, please stab my eyes out with a fork.

  • Eli

    if there ever was a person who was made to get cancer is O.J. simpson, the day he dies, I’m throwing a big party.

  • Maeve

    WHAT! OJ, can’t you at least continue pretending to be innocent for the sake of your two kids with Nicole?

  • Vicky

    Just disturbing. Hey FOX! Wanna play with the big boys (ABC, NBC, and CBS)? Stop putting crap like this on the air!

  • Martha

    File this unbelievably offensive crap under Things that Make me Die Inside and Programs I’d Rather Stick Needles in my Eyes than Watch.

  • mishamishamisha

    Is there a statute of limitations on murder in California? If not, heads up to the prosecutor’s office…YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE NOTES! The idea that this twit can waste two hours of valuable air time (like, let’s use the two hours to raise money for the homeless, Fox) makes me sick. I won’t be watching it…and I will definitely reassess my Fox viewing. Any network that jumps on this bandwagon is a few bricks shy of a full load!!

    I think a quote from “Network” (one of my fav movies) fits the bill:
    “We’re not a respectable network. We’re a whorehouse, and we’ll take what we can get.”
