Would you watch a TV show about Britney apologist Chris Crocker?

Well, that was quick. Just last week, 19-year-old YouTube sensation Chris Crocker — you know, the kid behind that "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE" clip (below; clip contains some NSFW language) — was telling EW’s Tim Stack that he was hoping to score his own reality show soon: "’I’m trying to kind of parlay this into a ticket out ofhere." And parlay it he has, according to Variety, which reports that he’s already signed a reality-TV development deal with production company 44 Blue.

This sounds like one of those ideas that everyone involved with will soon wish never occurred to them. 44 Blue isn’t exactly the most distinguished company in the reality biz — the most notable projects listed on their MySpace page are MSNBC’s prison doc series Lock-up and the History Channel’s Mega Movers, which is about, uh, how large stuff gets moved around. But I’m not sure even Mark Burnett himself could make Crocker’s histrionic kvetching watchable for much longer than that 2:11 YouTube vid.

Or maybe that’s just my envy of the entertainment industry’s radiant future talking. Either way, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time until someone posts up a "LEAVE CHRIS CROCKER ALONE!" rant on YouTube, so I’ll leave it at that. Is anyone out there actually hoping Crocker’s show makes it out of development?

    You could film a dog taking a crap, then leave the camera on that pile of crap for a good 25 minutes or so, and I’d watch that any day of the week over any reality crap with that loser.

    the only thing worse then watching Brittney at the VMA’s would be this guy.
    However I would watch the Seth Green parody of it

  • Tamara

    No. Just no.

  • Ceballos

    No. (man, i’m being shockingly concise today!)

  • Hayley

    Uhh…

  • Yeaaahhh!

    actually seth green made a leave Cris Crocker alone video i don’t know what’s funnier

  • junior

    See, I say I wouldn’t watch it, just like I said I wouldn’t watch Perez, but where am I bored Saturday afternoon? Watching Perez and enjoying it. I kinda like this idea, only because the more of any kind of different gay people on TV is good. Let’s just hope the show laughs with him and not at him.

  • Blaire

    You couldnt pay me to watch Chris Crocker. He has had his 15 minutes of fame, its time to move on.

  • Mavis

    I too, would rather watch the Seth Green paradoy of Chris Crocker more than watching Chris Crocker. I love me The Soup!

    As a gay man myself, I find Chris Crocker a whiny sobbing b!t*# that personifies every homosexual stereo-type imaginable. An overly emotional mess defending a gay-diva, whom he’s never met & who can’t even sing LIVE. Hell, dragqueens doing Britney songs could probably sing em better LIVe than Brit herself. Anyways, Chris should remain in TN & if he is smart enough to try & parlay those crocodile tears into a SOMETHING, it should be a high school degree or college education, because IF this show actually makes it on the air, i don’t see anyone caring. What is he going to do? Cry enedlessly over whoever the media is critiquing that week? HORRIBLE!
    Also, Seth Green’s parody video is HYSTERICAL, esp. when he keeps applying the eye liner! But lets just hope Chris’ 15 minutes of fame is up, GOD FORBID HE CREATE ANOTHER VIDEO NOW THAT BRIT’S MANAGER’S HAS FIRED HER & SHE HAS TO ADHERE TO RANDOM DRUG TESTING IN ORDER TO KEEP HER KIDS!!! I pray we’ve seen the LAST of Chris Crocker!

    The Chris Crocker reality show: for people who think the Geico Caveman sitcom is too highbrow.
    Could there be a clearer sign that the TV networks have run out of ideas? This guy makes me long for the more dignified days of the “Chocolate Rain” dude.
    So no, I wouldn’t watch this if you paid me. But I’m willing to bet the show won’t make it out of development.

  • Blue4U1980

    … no

  • Patti

    no way in h-e double hockey sticks
    (did I beat the comment censor?)

  • Jenn

    And here we are, giving him even more publicity. Just what he wants.

  • Matt

    And the award for exploiting Britney more than anyone else goes to: the guy who made a video online urging people to stop exploiting her. I knew this crap was fake all along.
