Shatner Gets Chat Show, Bio Channel Gets Wacky

042804_khaaaan.PNG

William Shatner gets an interview show on The Biography Channel, called Shatner’s Raw Nerve, which begs for parody right off the bat.

But maybe parody is the trend, as there’s also a pilot for Small Medium at Large, a show about a four-foot-tall psychic medium (psychic small?) who uses Chinese meditation to commune with the dead, and I Survived, about people who have survived near-death experiences.

Does being interviewed by Shatner count as a near-death experience? Or only if you hear him sing?
