why call it ‘Armed and Famous’?

December 6, 2006

CBS is making a television show called ‘Armed and Famous’ about celebrities joining the police department of Muncie, Indiana.

Why didn’t CBS choose a name like Celebrity Cops or something? Armed implies that it is a show about firearms; but isn’t police work these days mainly about driving, communicating, and paperwork?

I guess seeing La Toya firing a pistol would be more interesting than watching her fill out a form or transport a shoplifter.

I think that the overall crime rate in Muncie will go up because of the show. People will do goofy things so that their vandalism or whatever will be on the show.

I don’t consider policing to be a super dangerous job, but if any of the celebrities get injured, then CBS will make more money. Television is about eyeballs and more eyeballs equals more money.
