2:15 PM -- From Editor & Publisher:

    A popular reality show on Iraqi TV , the brainchild of a well-known newspaper publisher, could be called “This Bombed House.”

    Producers of the show, which is actually called “Materials and Labor,” provide money and expertise to Iraqi home-owners whose homes have been destroyed in the war. Some of the homeowners lost family members in the explosion...

    "Materials and Labor" and Al Sharqiya's other reality shows were created by Saad al-Bazzaz, 54, the network's owner and the publisher of the Azzaman newspaper. Other shows on his network include an Iraqi version of “The Newlywed Game” and a show about Iraqis who have AIDS.

Superspy Chuck Barris has to be behind this.
The good news is, there's actually no TV service in 90% of Iraq.
