“SINGLED OUT… FOR ELIMINATION!”
It's a series premiere!
[list][*]Twenty-five luscious ladies from around the multiverse, absolutely starved for a monogamous relationship. One bachelor (deemed eligible), genetically engineered for romance. Who’s going to “get lucky”? Tune in this October as, through process of explosive elimination, we narrow down the candidates until only one maintains bodily integrity on… [i]LONGSHOT AT LOVE![/i]
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: The clear non-sports winner, “LAL” is the evening's highest-rated series with adults 18-34 and all key women demos (W18-34/W35-49/W50+).
[*][I]“Not good enough! Those numbers have to spike, spike, spike! Poll the focus groups, replace the lowest performing contestants with more vicious species! They say lying with Oscavarians is hot right now… And MJV’s losing the males – Domo! We need some sports-themed programming for those mouth-breathing neckbeards. Send the goons! Get me NFL Superpro! ...whether he's willing to come or not.”[/I]
[*]Meanwhile, Longshot fights for his life against amorous adversaries vying for “non-scripted” suitor supremacy. Can the only woman he actually loves survive this deadly reality series? Can Spiral last until the final elimination ceremony?

“I WANT MY MJV”
[list][*]Every music video in the known multiverse is in a brutal, cutthroat competition for supremacy, but only one can trample the hopes of its enemies and victoriously claim the top spot. But can even the intrepid Mojovision Video Jockey (MJV-VJ for short) Longshot make it all the way through the top-ten countdown while being relentlessly pursued by hordes of ravenous, flesh-eating Marvel zombies? Find out on [i]MJV’S TOTAL REQUEST… UNDEAD![/i]
 [*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: TRU has slumped, failing to capture the top spot in even the once-assured female teen demographic. This is a far cry from the ratings domination the broadcast once boasted just a few short years ago.
[*][I]“WHAT?!? Com-plete-ly Unacceptable! We need to rebrand and we need to rebrand yesterday! Why aren’t those little brats tuning in anymore? Zombie oversaturation? Maybe if we killed and necromanticly reanimated Justin Bieber, hum? No, no. It’s because of the internet that we’re failing! That damnable series of tubes is the go-to source for music videos these days, so we need someone with an online presence. Get me that human chick who live-streams her criminal escapades! Get me Screwball![/i]
[*]Meanwhile, Longshot’s about to get devoured before he can throw to Darla Deering’s new bootylicious country-pop hit “It’s a Thing Thang.” Can he rely on the newly recruited MJV star NFL Superpro to help him out with some consensual, non-domestic violence? And behind the scenes, Spiral desperately searches for a way to boost the ratings before the Death Sponsors detect weakness!

“THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS”
[list][*]The 24 hour news cycle is a demanding and viscous beast that needs to be fed constantly... and nothing spawns talking points like war! This time of year, a particular war dominates the headlines more than any other and only one ace team of political pundits is voracious enough to handle the full-spectrum coverage for your favorite broadcasting family, MJV. Enter the “No Spin Zone” with “conservative” commentator Spiral and her team as they bring you all the developments in the [b]War on Christmas[/b]! And its going to get bloody!
 [*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: The only news broadcast who's viewers are actually less informed about current events than people who watch no news whatsoever, the “No Spin Zone” slumps whenever topics veer away from holidays or war.
[*][I]“Well then let's have us a holiday! And a war! I want every freakin' retail clerk who says 'Happy Holidays' conscripted! And send our team to the front-lines!”
[*]Rabid secularists have descended upon the North Pole, breaching outer defenses, seizing the infamous Workshop, and replacing all Christmas Trees with Holiday Ferns. It's up to the MJV pundits - Longshot, Spiral, NFL Superpro, and Screwball – to provide needed support to Nick Norris – the Son of Santa – before the war is lost and there is no Christmas this year! Violent Night, Holy $@#%!

“CSI: MOJOWORLD”
[list][*]In the criminal justice system, the people of Mojoworld are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police, who broadcast themselves brutally abusing criminals, and the district attorneys, who broadcast themselves dramatically prosecuting the offenders. These are their incredibly violent stories...
 [*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: Police procedurals are always popular with the older demographic, but with so many of them on the air, they have become formulaic and experience difficulty attracting younger, hipper viewers.
[*][I]“No no no no no! We need to go back to basics here. The classics. Hmm... more disproportionate use of force against disenfranchised minority groups? Naw, too depressing – even by my standards. Oh! I got it! Have those law enforcement goons bust up some political protests! Replace the pepper spray with acid, the tear gas with mustard gas! Let's reeeeallly get this going!”[/i]
[*]As the television personalities/militarized law enforcement of Mojoworld begin to mobilize, Longshot regrets organizing a clandestine rebellion – because now the rebels are all targets! Can the luckiest man in the universe and his castmates – Spiral, NFL Superpro, and Screwball - stop Mojo's Bad Boys from cracking the skulls of Mojoworld's non-violent resisters?

“MID-SEASON REPLACEMENT” Part One “The X-TEAM”
[list][*]In 2014, a crack reality television unit was sent to prison by a corrupt Mojoworld court for a crime they didn't commit. These men and women promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the rebel underground. Today, still wanted by Mojo, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them... maybe you can hire The X-Team!
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: A retro reboot of sorts, this program is the highest rated series among rebel sympathizers of all age brackets but has yet to find mainstream appeal.
[*][I]“That's because there's not enough surprisingly shocking deaths! Let's get all George R.R. Martin up in here and start killing off some beloved established characters! Especially the scum I made famous that had the audacity to lead an insurgency against me! Good thing I, Mojo, have plot armor... right?”[/i]
[*]The X-Team has been hired to assassinate their former boss Mojo by Mojo's clone, creatively named by network TV screenwriters, Mojo II! Can Longshot and his crew, Spiral, NFL Superpro, Quark, and Screwball , complete the mission? Someone will die (shockingly), and no one is safe!

“MID-SEASON REPLACEMENT” Part Two “GAME OF MOJOS”
[list][*]When you play the game of Mojos, you win or you die. Mojo died.
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: Coverage of the sudden and completely unexpected death of our dear lord Mojo and its aftermath has seen a spike in ratings for MJV. It seems all demographics are tuning in to see the ever-tasteful tributes to our fallen leader, and even more are eagerly anticipating the response from the rebels and the first words of Mojo's successor: Mojo II!
[*][I]“Mojo II sends his regards! From now on, MJV will be II fair and II balanced! And my first act as benevolent dictator and programming director shall be to execute those criminal scum responsible for assassinating my predecessor – live before a studio audience! Vengeance for Mojo! No justice, no peace!”[/i]
[*]Meet the new boss, same as the old boss! Mere moments after Longshot successfully killed Mojo at the behest of Mojo II, he had regrets – especially since Mojo II threw him and his team in prison and blamed the whole thing on them! Did Longshot get honeydicked? Is it possible that Mojo II is actually even worse than Mojo? Can Longshot, Spiral, NFL Superpro, Quark, and Screwball kill two Mojos in two weeks? And what will the sponsors think?

“MID-SEASON REPLACEMENT” Part Three “LONGSHOT AT SURVIVAL”
[list][*]Sixteen contestants/prisoners. Two tribes. Alliances will be formed, but once the votes are read, the decision is final, and the person voted out will be spontaneously combusted until dead. Who will be the sole survivor?
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: Always a solid ratings-netter in all core demographics, the audience simply loves watching enemies of Mojo II's regime struggle and scheme for their very lives!
[*][I]“If anyone has the hidden immunity idol and wants to play it, now's the time to do so... because if not, you're all gonna die!”[/i]
[*]Things couldn't be much worse. Longshot's team has been captured by Mojo II and sentenced to death! But how? Firing squad? Lethal injection? Electric chair? Of course not! They're placed on an island with a “tribe” of other political dissidents, forced to vote each other off until only one remains, and encouraged to compete for rewards and immunity – all for the pleasure of the viewing audience! And worse yet, Mojo II is the host! Can the alliance of Longshot, Spiral, NFL Superpro, Quark, and Screwball last until they're the final five? And if it can, who's getting voted out first? Can Longshot's plan to assassinate Mojo II with a torch at tribal council possibly succeed? It'll take some luck...

“MID-SEASON REPLACEMENT” Part Four “A MATTER OF LIFEGUARD AND DEATH”
[list][*]Some people stand in the darkness, afraid to step into the light. Some people need to help somebody when the edge of surrender’s in sight. Longshot’s team are not typically such people.
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: Viewer’s fear the unknown and latch onto established properties like leeches. This is why nostalgic reboots always do consistently well in all ratings demographics.
[*][I]”Nostaligia, eh? Well today’s thirty-somethings were teens in the 90s - and most of them became men by watching Baywatch! Let’s bring it back with a modern twist!!![/i]
[*]Set up to take the fall for the murder of Mojo, Longshot, Spiral, NFL Superpro, Quark, and Screwball have thus far managed to evade execution and hooked up with the rebels of Mojoworld. But our stalwart heroes are about to be changed into unwilling lifeguards as Mojo II unleashs a massive tsunami on the rebel-held city! Can Longshot keep his anti-Mojo insurgents alive, or will Spiral need to enhance her flotation devices?

“NOSTALGIC REBOOT” Part One “SELL ME A REVOLUTION”
[list][*]In the tank, rebels seek an investment to start, grow, or save their plans to overthrown the governing regime of Mojoworld. If the sharks hear a great idea, they'll invest their own money. But if they don't, they might murder the rebels. Who are the sharks? Self-made warlords worth billions of advertising dollars.
[*]Mojo II has ravaged the rebels, and their leader Longshot has gotten desperate. Its time to turn to the sharks for military aid. What's his elaborate idea? Simple really. Kill Mojo II, and bring back the original Mojo!
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: This looks like a surefire ratings grabber... who wouldn't tune in for the possible rebirth of (one of) the multiverse's favorite unsavory slug men? The question is, will he have rebirth deficiencies?

“NOSTALGIC REBOOT” Part Two “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN SPLICE?”
[list][*]The time has come to once again answer life's most duplicative question – who will sit upon the Clone Throne? This is Iron Geneticist: Mojoworld, and today's secret ingredient is... jellyfish DNA!
[*]Longshot has just discovered Mojoworld's underground competitive cloning arena, and that makes two of us! Its up to him and his eclectic team of rebels, including the multi-armed Spiral and the domestically violent NFL Superpro, to enact an audacious plan – clone the original Mojo back to life and have him replace his own replacement, the “even worse” Mojo II! But the only place on Mojoworld to make that happen is at the Iron geneticist laboratories, where the team must compete against three other impassioned groups of amateur splicers. Who can make the best Mojo? And if there's more than one, will Mojo be beside himself with anger at the man who killed him in the first place? (That's Longshot, btw).
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: Oh dear... I wish they'd allow us to focus group test the DNA before they use it. This is a risky ratings maneuver that is bound to displease the sponsors...

“NOSTALGIC REBOOT” Part Three “DIE OR DON'T DIE”
This is it. The final tribal council. The last rose ceremony. The culmination of the MID-SEASON REPLACEMENT Saga! Either Longshot, Spiral, and the rest depose Mojo II and restore a resurrected Mojo to power, or the revolution is crushed beneath Mojo II's corpulent belly fat! And as they storm the gates of Mojo II's network studios, there are no questions to ask... save one. Die or don't die?
Will NFL Superpro succeed and deflate Mojo II's ball? ...or will he die?
Will Screwball succeed and break the internet over Mojo II's head? ...or will she die?
Will Longshot burn Mojo II with a lucky strike? ...or will he die?
[*][U]Major Domo’s rating report[/U]: This is the most high-stakes episode yet! Ratings are predicted at astronomical figures! Everything will change after this issue... one way, or another!
