Watching Fox's Unhitched Sunday night, I knew I was in for a very special episode when the show was preceded by title card: "No rats were harmed in the filming of this episode. In fact, several were invited to the wrap party." Sure enough, in the first scene, a rat gets microwaved. For nine minutes.
In a possibly related matter, ABC announced Monday that its summer lineup will include a program called I Survived A Japanese Game Show.
