Veronica Mars - The Complete Second SeasonWhat else can we pair up with a semi-famous person for a reality series? Dancing seems to work. Skating didn’t do all that bad. Cooking was a disaster. How about the Last Comic Celebrity Duo Standing? It takes a famous comedian or at least one who works regularly and pairs them with a celebrity who we didn’t know was all that funny. The one who becomes the best standup wins and gets a donation to their favorite charity. Would you watch? At least it would be funny on purpose, well maybe.
