Straight Plan For The Gay Man: New Reality Show

Fri Feb 13, 2004 12:03 am

Ya knew it was coming....

Comedy Central is striking back at NBC/Bravo by initiating this show in which straight men will 'rehabilitate' p^ssy-fags who wish to behave more like real men.

First show debuts Feb 23.


"COMEDY CENTRAL's "Straight Plan for the Gay Man" has four straight comedians, the "Flab 4" (Curtis Gwynn, Billy Merritt, Kyle Grooms and Rob Riggle) working with a gay man to achieve his small but important dream of pulling the wool over the straight world's eyes for a day. In the three one-hour episodes, viewers will meet three different gay men and learn about that one thing they've always wanted to check off their life's "to do list."

The gay men include: Jonathan, an upscale fashion salesman who's always wanted to better understand the life of a blue collar worker; Roger, a quirky yoga instructor who has always dreamed of competing in a pick up basketball game; and Stephen, a hip singer/dancer with tons of female friends, who's always wondered if he'd be a smooth straight man when it comes to picking up the ladies.

So they want to pretend to be something they are not?

Sounds familiar...

the first show to capitalize on this has enjoyed killer ratings, so why not? ...I mean really, you think any of the hygiene-deficient losers from QE4TSG will still be waxing, 3 years from now?

I have yet to meet someone who ever admitted to watching much less liking these so-called "Reality" shows (which I imagine are about as impromptu as the Hoover Dam), yet for some reason, they remain as popular as ever.

I guess now that gays have come out of the closet, "Reality TV" junkies have taken their place there.

Windshear,

typical stereotypical stuff:
  • how to drink beer
  • the rules of
  • football/basketball/baseball
  • and most importantly... the concept of "less" (i.e., less decorating, less wardrobe variety, less attention to various facets of hygiene, etc)

    Wish they had queer eye for the queer guy. Even better: "Closeted a.net fagboy for the queer guy."

    To show less than uber-faggy gay guys how to wear lycra'd jeans, use hair product(s), love Cher, and drool over shots of Dubya in padded crotch enhancing jumpsuits.

    This is the reason I only watch Cartoon Network. But my two cents:

    Why the hell can't people do stuff on their own? Why do we need to watch people degrade themselves on TV? If someone wants to marry a total stranger who claims to be rich, just fly off to Vegas. There are plenty of less than truthful people there. If I really wanted to play a pick-up game of basketball/football/soccer/baseball, I would. I certainly do not want everyone in the world knowing what a terrable shooter I am from 3-point land and can't QB worth s*it. If I wanted to be in a blue-collar job, I would apply for one. This place needs to get a life.

    The only two reality shows I believe should be allowed to air are Survivor and Amazing Race.

    GO CANUCKS!!

    Hopefully the show will be in the same level of humor and taste as Queer Eye For The Straight Guy. I can wait to watch it.

    ConcordeBoy - was the use of "p^ssy-fags" off the Comedy Central site? Or was that your own eloquence? (Lemme know if you need 'eloquence' explained)

    So they actually CAN teach someone how to stink, be a slob, and still be clueless as to why they never get 'ny?

    Truly, best wishes.

    TWfirst,
    *slander*!

    You know I run around with my gay-buster proton packs, hoping to rid the world of the scourge that is your "kind"  Nuts


    But I do have openings (in my schedule, of course) in 2020.

    Not sure whether to congratulate you, or cry for you... knowing that 1) this probably isn't a far leap from the truth, and 2) your chances of contracting a venereal disease is virtual assured Big grin
