A YouTube promo for the Dec. 7 special titled, predictably, "Eaten Alive" shows Rosolie stalking an anaconda, otherwise minding its own business, before it presumably attacks

5. +100000 A revoltingly cruel killing of the snake for sensationalism and rating$$$$.

There is no scientific merit to this. There is no educational merit to this.

This is your "educational TV" in corporate neoAmerica.

4. Well that's a new fetish.

7. That's fucking horrible, I won't say what I think should happen

 

Reality TV will bring about Idiocracy at some point in time.

College students don't know who won the Revolutionary War...but the know all about Jersey Shore.

8. I kind of hope his "snake proof" suit isn't snake proof like he thinks it is

14. They're doing it wrong

 

Should have at least given the snake better odds by suiting up a midget for the challenge.

That's right, "The Learning Channel".
