In a word: Huh?

Forget all that Jay Leno/Conan nonsense, the real TV headscratcher of the moment is the idea of a reality show set in Forks, WA, the setting for Stephenie Meyer's enormously popular Twilight series.

And no, I'm not kidding.

That's no head-scratcher; TV sells what is popular.

The head-scratcher is Twilight's popularity in the first place.

And, when I've thought about it, that's not really a head-scratcher, either. Self-proclaimed awkward girl gets the everlasting devotion of fantastical beings and has everyone fighting tooth-and-claw to be with her... perfect self-insertion fantasy stuff, no matter how atrociously written and movie-adapted.

I read a comment somewhere wishing Meyer would set a novel in Detroit, which cracked me up. And really, if you can create a tourist industry in Forks, you could make one anywhere...
