Fox announced today that it has ordered a quiz show called Boom!, in which contestants snip different colored wires attached to "bombs" as their way of answering multiple-choice trivia questions. (If they answer incorrectly, the bomb explodes. Ha-ha.) The show is based on an Israeli format, though the Israeli show has only aired one episode so far. Fox's executive vice-president for alternative entertainment Simon Andreae said in a statement — with complete sincerity — that "it's as if Jack Bauer made brain love with Jeff Foxworthy." That is not very appealing, Simon!
