Jess's Take: Some TV Show Worthy News Stories

Welcome to a new installment of Jess's Take. I'm Jessica, and I write this editorial-style column, Off Topic, and the CW Renew/Cancel Watch. Today's installment is a little different, as we will be ripping from the headlines. Here we go!

A Sports Figure's Fall From Grace
Earlier today, the news outlets reported that Tiger Woods was arrested and charged with a DUI. That is called driving under the influence of alcohol or other illegal substances. This is the same guy that cheated on his ex-wife with over a dozen women back in 2009. He was one of the biggest golf players of all time, but he is associated with his fall from grace and has failed to make a comeback.

His fall from grace is TV show worthy because it captures a story of the golfer at his highest point in his career, only to let his impulsive decision making get in the way.

Another sports figure that fell from grace is former Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong. He admitted to doping on steroids during an interview with Oprah in January 2013. He is since banned from the Olympics for life and has been stripped of his seven Tour de France championships.

With these two sports figures, we should name a television show: An Athlete's Fall from Grace. Let's make that an anthology.

WorldStar Level Crazy
Last week, two educators: a teacher and a paraprofessional got into a brawl in a middle school classroom in Georgia. The video and story can be found at the link below:

Fights like these sound like a hood version of Nashville without the music. But since Nashville turned into Maddieville, we all know this level is going to turn off some longtime viewers. The teachers in the brawl got Donkey of the Day last Thursday and it's easy to know why.

It could work if this clip is shown on WorldStar TV. For it to be TV show worthy, it has to be the right coordination, and there doesn't need to be any speaking involved.

This is it for this installment of Jess's Take. Stay tuned to the TV Ratings Guide for more news and updates over the summer!
