I saw this "punk'd"-wannabe show on NTV7 a few weeks ago, just before "Thursday Night Live." The setup was that they tell this woman that her children were kidnapped and she gets a call from the kidnapper stating his demands. And if not met, they will harm her kids. They drag it out as they do and this poor mother was crying and terrified. After it gets old, they drag it out some more, and finally when they run out of time, they tell the woman it was candid-camera moment.
What kind of moron would find this funny? When someone asks "Do you know where the smart people are?", you can say "Not in television. Especially not at NTV7."
