From the “You’ve Gotta Be Kidding Me” Dept.: O.J. TV

November 15, 2006

Reuters is reporting that O.J. Simpson has agreed to participate in a FOX News special about his infamous “trial of the century” (that’s the 20th century of course).

The NFL Hall of Famer, former broadcaster, actor and suspected murderer will give hypothetical scenarios on how he would have committed the murders of wife Nicole Brown Simpson and beau/waiter Ronald Goldman.

The special will be hosted by book magnate Judith Regan, whose company Regan Books is publishing a Simpson book titled (and I’m not making this up…) “If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened” in late November.

(A search for the book at Amazon.com turned up nothing, and no trace of DNA evidence either.)

Regan Books and FOX News are both owned by News Corp., which in this case, is very morbid synergy.

From the Reuters article:

Fox executives declined comment about the show Tuesday. In a statement released Tuesday, executive vice-president/alternative programming Mike Darnell said: “This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. It’s the definitive last chapter in the trial of the century.”

The special is scheduled to air on Nov. 27 at 9 p.m. Check your local listings. And your conscience.

After O.J.’s failed return to TV with his reality Candid Camera-style show “Juiced”, where he tried to sell his infamous white Bronco, it’s amazing that anyone would try to milk some more money out of this car wreck of a celebrity.
