Black best known for his role on Ed is hosting Reality Bites Back, a parody competition that pits comedians against each other in absurd challenges, like fighting against crazy border patrol agents and attempting to become Olympic divers in 24 hours.
Black admits he finds reality shows atrocious, but going to the unscripted dark side isnt hurting his conscious.
He says, Ive spent a lot of time in my career contributing to the downfall of civilization, so this isnt going to do much to my soul. Its already dead.
Though all participants know this show mocks other reality challenges, Black says he cant understand why people embarrass themselves just to be on TV, because, in his words, As someone on TV, I can say its not that great.
However, hed change his mind if it meant appearing on Rock of Love, and winning Bret Michaels heart.
Reality Bites Back premieres tonight (Jul. 17) on Comedy Central.
