LONDON - Channel Four, otherwise known as 'the channel to turn to when there's shit on BBC', will host the new talent show 'How to Solve a Problem Like Korea'.

The show will be broadcast on the day after, on CBS in America at 9pm(EST), with the British broadcast happening at 8pm (GMT).

The show will follow several people from all across the world, ready to fill the place at the United Nations Emergency Conference on North Korea.

The contestants will have to prove themselves through each episode by proving, 'live', how they will solve a disparity, with each problem being harder and harder throughout the series.

"It's a good show," said C4 exec, Rob Smith, "It has politics, power, and all-time family fun in the form of social cleaning. What's not to love?"

Channel Four has been looking for a 'talent' show, with BBCOne's Strictly Come Dancing, and ITV's X-Factor.

Already rumours are flying on the internet what kind of performance the contestants will do.

On the, it says: "CBS's new show 'Korea', will start the first performance being taking down drug crime in various cities across the world. The cities are: Brixton (UK), Chicago (US) and the banleuies of Lyon (France)."

Already, contestants are being drawn in at auditions across the world.

"I'm so excited!" said Good Humanitarian. "I've got a great audition tape. I was disarming unexploded WW2 bombs with chewing gum!"

This reporter, in a feat of gonzo (self-including) journalism, decided to audition. He got through to the main show.

"I'm fucking cleaning up the not-so-mean streets of Birmingham," Inhopeless said. "I know all the drug dealers."
