Another cable TV spinoff

Cable television is easy to figure out from a programming aspect. Find a hit show, produce endless spinoffs. Bam!

It's the formula for success. Particularly at the former music channels like VH-1 and MTV. Laguna Beach begat The Hills. Hogan knows Best gave us Brooke Knows Best. Rock of Love gave us Daisy of Love (and everyone on both shows various STDs). Flavor Flav's dating shows gave us Charm School. See? It's all about the spin-off.

But what about some of the older shows? I'm thinking of Pimp My Ride from earlier this decade on MTV. It would have been a piece of cake to spin off. The possibilities of items which could be pimped are endless.

Particularly this one.

Dammit MTV, if you don't run with this one and whatever you interpret it to mean you are bigger fools than I had ever guessed.

Hint: Pimp My Wife could be about blinging out your tired, old wife or it coud be about turning your wife in to a streetwalking prostitute turning tricks for a pimp who ain't afraid to slap a ho.
Now that I've covered how to televise pimping of wives, check out the killer photos at MinnPics. If you don't I'll come up with more bad TV show ideas.

I am totally in love with this idea. I stay away from most reality TV, but I would totally watch "Pimp my Wife" and its inevitable spinoff, "Pimp my Husband".
