Not “Why would Discovery do the show?” That’s obvious. Put naked people on TV — even with the private parts pixelated — and put “Naked” in the title and people will watch.

Despite the fact that the SEC fancies itself the biggest, baddest, best thing in college sports, the SEC Network is struggling to get distribution. Sound familiar?
