“MILF Island” and “Slut Wars” — satiric genius, or Fox reality almost-rans?

Last year “The TV Set” — David Duchovny’s answer to why television sucks so hard — spoofed creatively bereft, profit-hungry, soulless network execs who eschew quality programming in favor of bottom-feeder fare such as the aptly-named reality-show-within-a-show, “Slut Wars.” (Anyone who’s seen an episode of the currently-airing “Paradise Hotel2” or “Flavor of Love 3” might wonder why we’re supposed to think “Slut Wars” is satire about where we’re headed and not, say, an average night of network flotsam. I, for one, am surprised that Fox’s smarm king, Mike “Joe Millionaire” Darnell, hasn’t already pitched the series.)

This week, from TV Guide’s Ask Ausiello column, we learn that another satiric reality-show-within-a-show is being planned for an upcoming episode of NBC’s 30 Rock“:

Question: Just 50 days until new 30 Rock episodes! Spoilers, please! — Joel

Ausiello: Jack Donaghy’s dream of creating a TV show that strands a bunch of middle-aged whores-for-hire on a deserted island is about to become a reality. Rock is casting a slew of attractive females in their late thirties to early fifties to serve as contestants on the fictitious “MILF Island“. The twist? The male contestants courting the hot mamas on the show-within-a-show are described as being “of eighth-grade age.” Yep, 30 Rock’s back, folks. Rejoice!

If “30 Rock’s” satiric jabs at NBC’s somewhat misguided “green week” are any indication, “MILF Island” should be hilarious.

How thankful am I that the writers’ strike is over?
