“Masked Scheduler” on Glutton Bowl

TV by the numbers has a post by the “Masked Scheduler” who claims to have worked at the Fox network and wanted to televise the Glutton Bowl the day after the 2002 Super Bowl:

At FOX our head of reality Mike Darnell delivered to us a two hour special called THE GLUTTEN BOWL. It was a competitive eating extravaganza that had several of us on the floor in hysterics. Even our button-down CFO Del Mayberry couldn’t hide his glee when I showed it to him.
I tried to convince my bosses that if we promote this to tens of millions of drunken viewers in the SUPER BOWL, and aired it the following night, it would be a ratings home run. They preferred to promote ALLY McBEAL and BOSTON PUBLIC. After all we were going to find out that Ally has a daughter. How can America not tune in?
