'Member that episode of 30 Rock where, in the opening credits, Jack Donaughey enumerates the slate of ridiculous reality shows NBC had in developement? These include, if you'll recall, America's Next Top Pirate, Are You Stronger Than A Dog and the infamous Milf Island. It would be funny if it weren't so true. The world just got a little dumber because news has hit that the Naked Cowboy will now play host to his very own reality show, modeled, he says, after American Idol, but pitting various street performers against each other. Yeah.

Apparently the skivvies-sporting cowpoke, whose fame spans from 42nd Street all the way to 45th, has inked a deal with the production company that gave us Scott Baio is 45 and... Single and that new Hulk Hogan wrestling show, though no network has yet been attached. For those of you shaking your head in disbelief, you might be interested to know that this show is hardly the first of its ilk to get the greenlight. Those of us lucky enough to live in the greater New York metropolitan area have been graced with a similarly themed show already, the Madison Square Garden Network(!)-produced NYC Sound Tracks, in which subway buskers compete. I guess the idea is sort of cool in its way -- it's giving some honestly hard-workin' (and at times shockingly talented) peeps exposure on a grander scale than, say, the 48 seconds between train arrivals that they normally get. Then again, it's not a huge thematic leap from this to America's Smelliest Homeless Person. And that, friends, is when I'll tell reality show producers to Derelicte my balls.

Oh, and that scene I mentioned from 30 Rock? It's after the jump.
