"I know who I'm catering to, and that's 18- to 34-year-old males who are the ones watching Spike TV," he said. "We're going to push the limits on this show, like 'Nip/Tuck' and 'The Shield' -- violence, sex, bad language. We're going to see how big Spike's balls are on this one."
-- UFC President Dana White, speaking about the just-greenlit, as-yet-untitled two-hour drama pilot he's creating/producing, which is set to shoot for Spike TV this fall. The show will deal with the Irish mafia and "centers on the explosive fallout when a Boston mob boss vacates his position and rival factions face off in a battle to control the streets." In other words, The Sopranos with different, more obnoxious accents and considerably less of everything that made The Sopranos awesome because this won't be on HBO. Best of luck, Dana, but Spike doesn't exactly have a strong track record with original dramas. (See: Blade: The Series, The Kill Point).
