OK, we need to talk about “Splash.”
Have you seen the commercials for ABC’s new celebrity diving show? Stars from all walks of life are giving only a handful of weeks to learn how to do an Olympic-style high dive and compete against one another for the chance to stick around for another week.
First of all, what?
Second of all, didn’t Fox already do this?
I can’t believe there are so many people from the sports world that associate with this excuse for entertainment.
Katherine Webb makes the most sense of the group. I mean, the girl’s got to get the most of what I hope is only 15 minutes of fame. Same with Ndamukong Suh, who desperately needs good publicity.
Why Mr. Abdul-Jabbar, why? You are the all-time leading scorer in NBA; you aren’t really underexposed as an athlete. Plus, writing critiques on the HBO show, “Girls,” for The Huffington Post is 10 times cooler than this.
I really hope this show only lasts one episode, so we can quickly forget that Kareem ever did this.
