Before we even get any further, let’s answer the question: is Killer Karaoke hosted by Steve-O the best show of all time? No. The best show of all time is The Sopranos. (The Wire is a close almost-tie, but at the end of the day when you are deciding what is the best TV show of all time it comes down to which is better at being an actual TV show, rather than which is the most fascinating but uneven portrait of brutal aspects of the American drug trade. OK, Christopha?) But Killer Karaoke hosted by Steve-O is almost certainly the best show premiering this Friday on Tru TV. Ugh, that is such damp praise considering how much I enjoy the preview clip of this show and am looking forward to the show. It looks amazing! I don’t really want to give too much away, but just try to imagine a show in which regular people are singing karaoke in front of a live studio audience, and then some other stuff happens but they do their best to keep singing, and the whole time Steve-O is standing right next to them holding their elbow as if to keep them from escaping, or dropping dead. You’ll see.

AHHHHHHHHH. HAHAHAHAHA. So good. Definitely the best Fear Factor of all time but it is even more than that. Congratulations, Tru TV, whatever you are. (Via Interweber.)

  1. I can’t tell if you’re joking or not. It looks really funny!

  2. The best show of all time was Doug.

  3. I would be most terrified by Steve-O touching me the whole time. Lay off Steve-O, I’m trying to sing with my head in skunk cage.

  4. “That’s a pretty good cover”-Blood on The Dance Floor

  5. Whether or not it is the best show of all time, it is perceived as the best show of all time.

  6. Your Honor, I object to Mr. Delahaye’s assertion that The Sopranos is the best television show of all time, when the truth is that clearly Ru Paul’s Drag Race is superior to everything aired on any channel since the dawn of time. As evidence, I would like to call to the witness stand Latrice Royale. Ms Royale?

    I rest my case.

  7. All the best shows are in Squigglevision.

  8. This is like if Vgum created a show a la the romantic comedy last week.

    There will be KARAOKE mixed with FEAR FACTOR and it will be hosted by STEVE-O

  9. This is definitely getting a “record series” on the DVR.

  10. So, Jackass 4 is a musical now?

  11. Hitting snakes and screaming at skunks. This is animal cruelty.

  12. How is the skunk box scarier than the pigeon box? Come on, lady.

  13. It’s only a matter of time until Killer Karaoke features the legendary stylings of Godsauce. #videogumeverywhere

  14. I laughed my ass off. I think it would get old quick but yes, this will be one of the greatest shows mankind will ever know.

  15. I saw a clip on Chelsea Lately last night about Killer Karaoke. There was this girl suspended on a swing and as she was singing, they lowered the swing into a tank full of water and water snakes until the lower half of her body was submerged. OMG I was afraid a snake would try to attack her nether regions. Grossgrossgrossgrossgrossgrossgrossgrossgrossgross

  16. I have a shameful love of TruTV and anything related to Jackass so I will be watching this post haste

  17. Killer Karaoke – making people scared of teddy bears since 2012.

  18. I wonder if Steve-O came up with the concept or if it was pitched to him. Either way, genius idea.

  19. This is so my new fav show.

  20. Just when I thought I couldn’t hate karaoke any more.

  21. Move over Breaking Bad

  22. I really like how the show lacks any apparent incentive to perform well. Whether or not you keep singing Carrie Underwood while you get blasted with skunk juice matters not. Also, the teddy bear was a nice touch.

  23. I watched this show last night while drinking hot tea and whiskey, and it provided the only bit of respite I’ve had in a horror-filled week of paranoia, anxiety and bed bugs. Thank you Killer Karaoke and thank you Steve-O. The only thing that would make this show better is if the contestants were people I know well and dislike or people I’ve run into going about my daily life and who pissed me off for one reason or another. Oh, and I’d also prefer if it were taped in my basement with only me in the audience drinking hot tea and whiskey.
