'Hole in the Wall' revived at Cartoon Network

How's this for an unexpected announcement: Cartoon Network is reviving Fox's short-lived reality show "Hole in the Wall."

3-shot The network has given a 10-episode order to the FremantleMedia series, a "human Tetris" game show where contestants contort themselves to fit through odd shapes. 

In the new version, two teams of families compete against each other instead of groups of individuals.

Here's a hint to producers: Ditch the lame slick bodysuits. Yes, they wore them in the hit Japanese version, but this ain't Kyoto. It makes all the contestants anonymous. Have contestants wear their own fitness clothes (like on ABC's "Wipeout" and Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance"), whatever they're comfortable in. Not only would the contestants be much more unique and attractive looking, but you'd have a clearer sense of how they're contorting their bodies to fit the shapes.
