New Reality Show Has Audiences in Stitches
The fall TV season is in full swing, and it wouldn’t be the same with out a new reality TV show. Almost every network has released a series that flaunts sex or disgusting acts of humiliation for cash, but the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) is the only one that dared to be different.
Building on MTV’s success with shows like Punk’d, CBN has found a smash hit with this fall’s Just Joshin’: Christian Pranks and Other Tomfoolery. So far, people everywhere love the good, wholesome fun of a silly trick.
On last week’s episode, a mother replaced her teenage son’s bible with an identical match, but with different passages highlighted. He was stupefied as he sat down at his bible study. She came running into the room, pointing out the hidden cameras, and exclaiming “Just Joshin’! Just Joshin’, Gosh I sure did trick you well!” Audiences never saw it coming, it was sheer brilliance. Other outright goofy pranks include soaking a reverend’s trousers in icy-hot, calling people by the wrong names, and putting bleach in the water cooler at church on a really hot day. With all these funny tricks, it’s a shame I don’t watch it… JUST JOSHIN’…I really do watch it.
