Spike TV Celebrates ‘MXC, The Original, Not The Ripoff, Weekend’ July 5-6
NEW YORK, July 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Spike TV realizes that in the summer, some broadcast networks might be "lost" like a "desperate housewife" or an "ugly betty" in search of "bachelor" so they turn to imitating shows on cable. In honor of this, Spike TV celebrates "MXC, The Original, Not The Ripoff, Weekend" on July 5-6 as an homage to the network's original series based on a wacky Japanese game show which debuted five years ago.
