Japanese Game Show "Hole in the Wall" Coming to America

Forget American Idol ... the funniest TV contest is coming to America straight from the King of funny TV shows, Japan. FOX TV is now casting for the American-version of Hole in the Wall.

I have a sneaking feeling that this was on Neatorama already, but what the hey, it's funny: Hit play or go to Link [YouTube] to see how it's played - via Pop Omnivore, thanks Marilyn Terrell!

Ugg, I just saw commercials for two more Japanese imports. It would be hooray if i had any faith in the networks.
Simmy, i agree, bios suck.

American television doesn't know how to do this sort of show. They'll spend half the show doing bio pieces on every contestant, showing their kids at home, etc.
Plus the contestants won't know how to just have fun. They'll take every game way too serious.
And I agree with DOJ...the producers will do crap like that to over-dramatize it.

Yeah, I think we have the Ellen DeGeneres show to thank for this. I think the Japanese contestants in ballgowns and heels really made it, though. I hope it's as great as the original.
