Golf Channel reality show features blondes, Palmer

HBO's "Real Sports" isn't the only show debuting at 10 p.m. Tuesday that is due for a free plug on the blog today.

And I actually did watch a lot of the preview DVD for "Highway 18," a Golf Channel reality series in which teams of players run around performing assorted tasks, some of them golf-related, over 10 episodes and 1,000 miles.

It's difficult to explain. It's sort of a golf road rally. But at times in the premiere episode, it seems like a parody of a reality series, complete with a duo of attractive, young, blonde females named Ashleigh and Ashley. No, really.

Come to think of it, all of the females on the show are young and attractive.

Whatever. I'm pretty sure it is not a parody. As everyone knows, it's difficult to parody reality shows, because they are parodies of themselves.

What makes this one unusual is that it attempts to bring together two demographics that rarely intersect: golf fans and reality show fans.

Arnold Palmer guests on the first episode. I'm going to take a wild guess that he is not a big reality show guy.
