The Iowa caucus is but the first episode of the presidential reality show.

If the networks want to cope with the writer’s strike, they would put this reality show on right after “The Biggest Loser” and right before “American Idol.”

Mike Huckabee could make an appearance on “The Biggest Loser,” thanks to his best-selling weight-loss program.

Ron Paul is this year’s version of “American Idol’s” Sanjaya Malakar, detested by the experts but beloved by a small group of dedicated followers who keep voting him into the next round.

And what about Rudy Giuliani? There’s no show called “Da Mayor,” but wouldn’t it be great if there were?
