Hole In The Wall

Having previously seen videos of the original Japanese version (aka Human Tetris) I was excited when I heard that Fox had licensed the concept to make a US version.  When will I learn?  While the actual people-being-humiliated-by-attempting-to-fit-through-holes-much-smaller-than-their-actual-bodies portion of the show is hilarious, it only adds up to about 3 minutes of the entire program.  The other 19 minutes is all contestant chest-thumping, idiotic post-catch-pool-douche analysis, and the host repeatedly announcing, “It’s time to face…The Hole.”

My advice–DVR it and skip everything but the three minutes of action.  You’ll be glad you did.

Or just check out the original on YouTube:
