Remember when you used to watch Tarrant On TV and how we'd all scoff at the Japanese entertainment shows featuring people being tortured in horrible ways for our amusement. Who knew such shows would be the future of TV.

Well, American's TruTV (its tagline is 'Not reality. Actuality.') have gone one further. They've melded American Idol, Fear Factor, and thrown a jaded Jackass in as the presenter for good measure to give us Killer Karaoke.

If you live in America (we have American readers too by all accounts), it airs on TruTV at 9.00pm stateside tomorrow night.
