The specifics behind Killer Karaoke are so WTF that the show makes Ow! My Balls! look humble by comparison.
Channel: TruTV, the home of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Disorder in the Court, Lizard Lick Towing, It Only Hurts When I Laugh!, and Cheesecake Factory commercials.
Premiere Date: November 23, 2012, the day after Thanksgiving.
Host: former Jackass star Steve-O, who once said, “My brain is f*cked up from using so much cocaine, ketamine, PCP, nitrous oxide, and all sorts of other drugs.”
Premise: SING OR DIE, basically. According to the show’s website, “Killer Karaoke features contestants challenged to perform their favorite songs in extreme and outrageous circumstances.” Evidently this includes threatening to drown a woman on a swing in a pool of snakes if she doesn’t sing Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman” perfectly, while Steve-O laughs at her own personal hell. It’s wonderful.

Those people and this show is the second coming of Paul McCartney meeting John Lennon. A perfect pair.
