Reality TV at its cheapest and worst.

I can see why FOX keeps this crap on the air. The advertising revenue must surely be much more than the cheap set, cheap host, cheap audience.

The premise is stupid: People must position themselves in such a way as to get through a hole in a moving piece of Styrofoam. If they do, they win money.

Who watches this, I wonder? People bored and waiting for The Simpsons to start, I imagine. Still, this is an example of an increasingly creatively-bankrupt Television programming industry. I just hope they cancel it and put reruns back in its spot. I'd rather watch a rerun of any of Fox's animated programs.

Simply bad,annoying TV

Author: tallmexJG from Texas

Where do we begin? OK, very first annoyance that seems so obvious to me: Is there a point in this 22 or so minutes of "TV" where the audience is not, that is NOT, clapping and cheering? Seriously, what kind of drugs are these people on that they never stop trying to push as much energy into a energy less show? I don't understand how Fox is not sued per show for sore hands.

Sencond annoyance: Is it me, or does the contestants seem a little to hyped up and overexcited to a point where you get the impression they are putting on a really bad act? Don't get me wrong, If I had the opportunity to win money by twisting and turning my body through 3 rounds, I'd be pretty pumped too. But these people preform like they hit the game winning shot, won the lottery and whooped someone in Street Fighter 4 all at the same time for 22 straight minutes! A little much...

Final annoyance: 2 hosts. Necessary? No.

Addictive and fun!

Author: lassitude from Seattle

Remember the "physical challenges" from Double Dare? Hole in the Wall reminds me a lot of those, and it's always fun to watch for the same reasons it was fun to watch Double Dare, or GUTS.

Usually I hate game-shows, as they're invariably boring to me, but Hole in the Wall is just fast enough to keep from getting old too fast. It's always fun to see if a giant contestant will make it through, or if a tiny one will get swept into the pool by the wall.

But I guess if you're determined to be angry about life in general, you won't have much fun watching. Too bad, because I'd play the game every day if I could.
