Erik Estrada and a glimpse of Television Hell

Estrada On Thursday night's episode of My Name Is Earl, the brain-damaged Hickey brothers, Earl and Randy, are channel-surfing when they run across a new show called Estrada or Nada in which contestants challenge Erik Estrada, the bloated and forgotten star of the 1970s cop show CHiPs, to compete at "hot-dog eating, fencing, sewing, violining, geography, to find out if they are Estrada or Nada!" Murmurs an awestruck Earl: "We truly live in the golden age of television!" Ha-ha. See how funny it is at the upfronts when Jeff Zucker announces the show is in the Thursday night lineup, guys.
