Can that CEO

Literally - CAN that CEO
  (+2, -8)(+2, -8)
(+2, -8)
  [vote for,

This is a survivor type TV show where each week a CEO is highlighted that is making more money then the profits his company has made during his tenure. The audience is invited to buy stock in the company and “Can that CEO.”

Revised pilot for Can that CEO:

The CEO that gets the least votes is condensed in size placed in a can with a dog food label on it and placed in a supermarket near you. I was thinking of cat food first but they are way too picky.

       Sounds boring.

       As long as it is "dolphin friendly".

       [marked-for-deletion] flavor*   

       * flavor - the poster would like something that already comes in a number of flavors to come in another flavor. For example, tomato ice cream, or chocolate toothpaste.   

       Why does this idea have to be on TV? Isn't this what shareholders do on a regular basis during their AGMs? If you want to make accountancy into a TV format, why stop with the remuneration packages of the board of directors? Why not go totally mental and include a little segment on depreciation on fixed assets too? Amortised loan repayments!! Hell yeah!

       canned CEOs are terrible. they are best grilled on a stick.

       I have to agree with the comments, I guess my humanity got the better of me. I do think that [UB] has a good suggestion so I'm going to punch it up and see if the pilot will fly.

       Gem, this senerio has some merit, but you haven't explored it completely. Start with 16 CEOs and each week can one, till only one is left and everybody buys his stock. Seem familiar? It's the very successful reality format Mark Burnett has used (Survivor, The Apprentice) that the viewers eat up. He also produces "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?" Hmm. A similar show featuring CEOs? I like it. Calling NBC.

       Who can take a business, sprinkle it with dew,
Cover it with layoffs and a bankruptcy or two?
The CEO, oh the CEO can!
The CEO can 'cause he simmers them with love and cooks the books so good.

       Who can take an a**hole, wrap him in a suit,
Nominate his son and make golden parachute?
The CEO, the CEO can!
The CEO can 'cause he simmers them with love and cooks the books so good.

       a-CEO, a-CEO, a-CEO!

       [Amos] A theme song!   

       //The CEO can 'cause he markets it with love and makes the books seem good//   

       Minor suggestion. The CEO can 'cause he simmers then with love and cooks the books so good   

       Love it

       ...Oh yes he caaaan!
The suggestion looks fine, so it's been incorporated. I put about half as much thought and effort into it as should be reasonably required. But what ya gonna do?
