Tori Spelling joins latest TV trend: self-bashing actors

Television

April 02, 2006|By DAVID ZURAWIK | DAVID ZURAWIK,SUN TELEVISION CRITIC

Television's newest genre may be the celebrity-abuse sitcom. Kirstie Alley was the first to mock herself in her own show. Then Farrah Fawcett did it. And now Tori Spelling is doing it, too.

With each new show, in which B-list celebrities grasp at stardom by making fun of themselves on camera, the amount of humiliation heaped upon them grows.

SO NOTORIOUS / / makes its premiere at 10 tonight on VH1.
