The Joe Schmo Show is a reality TV show parody which aired on the American cable network Spike TV starting in September 2003. The show's concept is reminiscent of the movie The Truman Show. One man, Matt Kennedy Gould, thinks he is one of nine contestants on a reality TV show called Lap of Luxury. Unbeknownst to Gould, everyone else on the show, including the host, is actually an actor, and the show itself is in fact an elaborate hoax designed to elicit comedic reactions from Gould. The Joe Schmo Show was created by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who were also responsible for Joe Schmo 2 and the Spike TV reality miniseries Invasion Iowa.
