Whodunnit? And more importantly, why?

Browsing the TV is a bad idea. I just stumbled across a “reality” show on Spike TV. It’s called Murder, and one site describes it this way: “Each one-hour episode of Murder will give two groups of civilians the chance to solve a real-life homicide by working at an exact replica of a crime scene.” Civilians include people like firefighters, teachers, business dudes, and “Tank, Law Student and Former Gang Member.”

They include graphic “actual photos” flashed on the screen at intervals following no discernible pattern. Yay! Episodes have catchy titles like “The Bludgeoning.” And your host, Detective Tommy Le Noir (seriously).

Why would they do this? Who comes up with these ideas?
