"Armed And Famous" To Premiere On CBS Wednesday

And I thought "Rescue Me" gave firefighters a bad rap. This show doesn't seem poised to shed a positive light on Law Enforcement.

However, I will give this show the benefit of the doubt first. This series looks like it can be quite interesting. Premieres THIS Wednesday at 8PM on CBS (NY Channel 2)

Through a rumor from a friend who works at CBS development, if this series is succesful, then they are going to try a "firefighter version"

Armed and Famous is the title of a reality television series that will premiere
January 10, 2007 on CBS.The series follows five celebrities as they train to
become reserve police officers for the Muncie, Indiana police department,
followed by graduation. After that, the celebrities will go on patrol with the
same training officers who traditionally ride with new officers.The series stars
Erik Estrada (CHiPs), La Toya Jackson, Jack Osbourne (MTV's "The Osbournes"),
Trish Stratus and Jason Acuña (a.k.a. "Wee Man" on Jackass).On December 5, 2006,
the celebrities were officially sworn in as reserve officers
