You can call him Al!In the many concepts that Spike TV is trying to introduce, in order to shore up their audience, Gothamist would definitely take a cotton to the proposed reality show hosted by Al Sharpton, "I Hate My Job." While the actual details of the show are okay ("eight men — including a pre-school teacher, a manure shoveler for a compost company, a lawyer and a handyman — will get a helping hand from Sharpton and the chance to become a club promoter, male model, comedian and a hockey coach, respectively"), the prospect of Al Sharpton browbeating you into trying your best and succeeding is pretty intoxicating to us. Imagine it: Meetings in the Harlem beauty parlor as Al gets his hair set, or one of your tasks is driving Al to the scene of some urban, most likely racial, controversy. Calling himself the working man's Donald Trump, Sharpton says, "Most people end up going through life doing things [for a living] that they really don't want to do. Ultimately, people ought to try to pursue who they want to be rather than just be whatever will pay the bills, and that's the theme of the show." Sigh, Gothamist knew there was a reason you seemed the smartest Democratic candidate in all the debates.

The Daily News makes the keenly observed point that Reverend Al's last real job was as a roadie for James Brown.
