Madden 06 Reality Show A Reailty

ESPN and EA are teaming up for what they are calling the first video game reality series, Madden Nation. Starting Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 11 and 11:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2, the eight-episode series will pit the nation's 13 best Madden NFL 06 gamers-along with their real-life NFL player sponsors-against each other in elimination-style tournaments on a 17-day national bus tour. NFL players Shaun Alexander, Ben Roethlisberger, Dwight Freeney and others will be featured with their corresponding player representatives during each stop of the tour. The finale, which will be aired Tuesday, Dec. 27, was shot in New York's Times Square on the ABC Super Sign. The winner claimed a $100,000 prize.

"Madden Nation will give ESPN viewers the best of both worlds: exciting, top-level competition and some of football's best known players in the biggest game on the market," said John Skipper, ESPN executive vice president, content.

I'm not sure that this is going to make for great TV, but it's better than broadcasting poker 12 hours a day.
