    Time to bring back Gladiator games.

    With reality shows like Fear Factor, Robot Wars and others there is a huge interest in dangerous reality television.

    I believe its time to bring back gladiator games.

    Build a fighting arena, offer a huge prize and let people fight for real to the death.

    Its something people were fascinated with in the past and something the gladiators themselves take pride in.

    It would be the highest rated show on television and its all voluntary so nobody is forced to do it.

    Give them a 50 million dollar prize or something and I imagine you would have people lining up to get in the arena.

    Look at the popularity of MMA.

    When that came out people flocked to it because of the violence.

    Like it or not, we as a species enjoy violence.

    Have you ever been to Medieval Times?

    Look at how people root for their knight to smash the competition down.

    My God, Vegas betting would be off the charts.

    Why not just bring back public executions? And put hard-core porn on cable?

    You should test market the idea this way:

    Live from Madrid...it's Corrida de Toros, where it's danger for the man with the cape but certain death for that big, nasty bull!

    There are six bulls every Sunday, complete with natural opportunities for commercial breaks (which is a plus over soccer). They could include live cutaways to the surgery just off the bull ring where we can watch as attendants try to stanch the blood after a matador gets a artery cut after being gored in the hip. Might even catch a little shot of his junk while he dies.

    Imagine the lingering shots of blood in the sand!

    Exciting!
