Wisconsin Recall Cam is the country's latest hit reality TV show
on

The placing of a camera in the bleak, bunker-like room of undisclosed location in Madison wherein workers are verifying the signatures on the petitions to recall Governor Scott Walker was probably designed to lend some transparency to what is otherwise a highly protected process.

However, RecallCam has become a smash hit, and has spawned spoofs on Twitter and coverage across the U.S. The footage has been termed "so boring it's mesmerizing," and yes, it's the very grim blankness and eerie silence of the scene that lends it to endless captioning -- a real petri dish of negative capability.
