The One, ABC television's much heralded reality rock-star TV show has died. It was two weeks old. Despite a heroic struggle for ratings, producers were unable to revive the show.
The One leaves behind a grieving Canadian, left-wing, pseudo-cool, fake political hack turned big-time presenter, and a large hole in the CBC television schedule. George Strombolombolombolombol (that's enough ombols - Ed) was also injured in the train wreck. CBC spin doctors are working urgently to save his career.
The One was already missed by just about everyone, and now will be missed by noone. Peter Mansbridge, a remote acquaintance, said "Now I get my slot back, at least until next years' playoffs."
