"The premise of the program is to put together 7 high rollers who will put up $1 million each in a winner take all gambling competition that will take place in Las Vegas, where the players will live together in a suite."

Not a bad time at all for this idea. If they can cash in on the Vegas theme (CSI, World Poker Championships, Las Vegas, and now The Casino) before the networks get watered down with too many Sin City shows, it could easily be picked up by one of the main channels for the fall sweeps. I'm not crazy about them all living together in one suite, as that's done to death already, but it doesn't seem to really hurt too many shows. The Apprentice didn't focus too much on the contestants living together, apart from the odd squabble.

If it is picked up (and it fits perfectly into NBC's programming), Eric Bischoff might just be the next Rock and leave the WWE for a full-time entertainment job.

Who would ever have picked Bischoff to be the next on WWE's roster to follow the Rock onto bigger and better things (if this happens)?

Bischoff, like anyone would in a company where many people distrust him and some hate him, has been looking for other employement avenues since the day he came aboard, I'd guess. He's mentioned nebelous Hollywood oppurtinties in the past, but this might be the first one to actually to make it to pilot.

Bischoff has more past big money success (and ways to mitigate failure) than Rock does, and was looking into Hollywood back when WCW was hot, so he's probably got more connections.

Ah yes, Bischoff's still chasing his dream of becoming a Hollywood producer. At least this has a better chance of airing than "Chowdaheads" or whatever that animated project him and Hervey were working on was called.

You have to imagine though that there's already been numerous pitches to play off the whole Vegas reality blitz, so there's a good chance that by the time this gets produced it'll have been already watered down.

I don't fault him for it, because regardless of Bret's condition, he is a part WWE's and especially HBK's history. It's kind of hard these days to think of Shawn and not think of Bret. Kind of ironic.
