Comedy Central has given the green light to TV's first animated "reality" show. The cable network has ordered eight episodes of Drawn Together, which puts famous cartoon characters like Captain America, Betty Boop and SpongeBob SquarePants in a Real World/Big Brother-type situation. "Anything adults can do on a reality show, we want our characters to do," exec producer Dave Jeser (The Man Show) tells Variety. "You haven't seen cartoons having sex or bulimia." Um, hello? What about Paradise Hotel? How quickly we forget.
