Spike TV revives 'Man Show' (but isn't calling it that)

Dispatch from Spike TV: "With the late-night wars in full swing, it only makes sense that Spike TV, a network for guys, would jump into the ring."

Does it?

Nobody's really clamoring for yet another late-night talk show.

Spike is teaming with Thom Beers ("Deadliest Catch") to develop the network's first entry in the genre. The program will be a "weekly half-hour series that will be a combination of talk and comedy with a focus on "manformation for the true guys’ guy" and will have two hosts ... all of which sounds a lot like Comedy Central's "Man Show" without (presumably) the crucial charm-smarm of Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel.  

Spike has also ordered a third season of "1000 Ways to Die" because there's more ways to die than they've previously told us about.
