BuddyTV's "fantasy TV" leagues: BuddyTV has launched reality TV-based fantasy leagues. Similar to fantasy sports leagues, the TV leagues let fans of shows like America's Next Top Model and Survivor build teams of reality TV stars and compete over which personalities they think will be eliminated each week. Members of the TV-centric online community can compete in public or set up private matches with friends or coworkers (via NewTeeVee).

The show, which consists of sketches, parodies and infomercials, premieres March 20; Murphy also serves as one of the show's executive producers (via THR).
