Not since the original Fear Factor has a television show so unapologetically capitalized on our sadistic consumerist tendencies, but TruTV's new show Killer Karaoke has done that all over again and so much more. The hour-long television event (which premieres this Friday, the day after Thanksgiving) features five contestants competing for a grand prize of $10,000 while singing cult-classic hits from the last three decades while being forced to engage in several challenges that could potentially maim if not kill them. For instance, watch this guy sing "Hard to Handle" while repeatedly receiving several volts of electric shock.
Is there anything else you'd rather be watching with your whole family gathered around the television set this holiday? (No. The answer is "no.")
