drop your weapons, please.

Do you want five has-beens like the ones above wielding guns and badges?

Neither do I, yet CBS thinks it was a good programming idea. This from the network that believes David Spade makes a convincing Lothario-style bachelor.

I know they've only trained them to be reserve officers, but the idea of people as unstable, stupid, and airheaded as Jack Osbourne, LaToya Jackson, and Erik Estrada training to be cops in Muncie, Indiana screams out, crying at the stupidity involved.

I wish somebody out there could provide some insight as to what actually goes on during the meetings to greenlight these projects.

What's the current line on Rules of Engagement - three weeks? If so, I'll take the over, but not by much.

I suspect bad "synergy" between Viacom-owned CBS and its other properties, namely VH-1, which has a fanatical obsession with reality shows involving 80s-era or earlier celebrities (which explains Jackson and Estrada), would explain this.
