In another sign of the end of civilization as we know it, Country Music Television has hired an ex office temp to be vice president of the “Dukes of Hazard” Institute. The salary — $100,000 for a one-year contract. The job — watch nightly reruns of the 1979-85 silly sitcom on CMT and write a blog about it.
Christopher Nelson was one of 2,000 people to apply for the job. The contract mentions no time off for vacation.
“For $100,000 he’d better watch that show every night,” said James Hitchcock, CMT’s vice president for marketing.
