The Paperhaus has just found this gone-missing posting from Craigslist Phoenix:
Wanted: Book Club for new reality-based show. Preferably, all female members. The show will be a cross between "The View" and "The Real Housewives of Orange County." We'll film your discussions and delve into your private lives. YOU will be the stars. The first book you'll discuss is Good In Bed, which will give you the chance to talk about your sex lives. (We'll give you some notes on the book if you don't have time to read it). Bored? Too much time on your hands? Chronic philanderer? You're exactly who we're looking for. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, CBS pulled the plug on its reality show "Tuesday Night Book Club" after just 2 episodes. Diane Kelleher, a book club member and attorney who watched an episode, dismissed the show to USA Today: "Why did they need the book-club angle when they don't talk about books?" Apparently, the seven women of the show never once talked about Good In Bed. Jennifer Weiner is finding a way to get over it.
Meanwhile, a CBS executive said, "If we did a network prime-time show talking about books for an hour, it probably wouldn't fly." Maybe just, like, before the credits? You know, like when they find the body in "Law & Order"? Just a little bit of lit before moving on to the bored implant-y housewives.
