Last night’s episode of Joe Schmo was exciting yet unfulfilling. Taking a cue from Fox, the producers ended the show with one vote left and announced that the season finale will air two weeks from yesterday. Ugh. They never indicated that this wasn’t the last episode; in fact, the commercials leading up to the show conveyed a distinctly opposite conclusion. So I suppose that the last hour-long show will feature a little bit of announcing and 45 minutes of Matt being shocked and filling in the blanks. That should be good TV, though I wish it had happened yesterday instead of several weeks from now.
If you’re not familiar with the show, here are some good summaries.
