Because Americans like nothing more than watching people suffer through their lowest moments, TLC has picked up TV's first all-drunk driving show. DUI will follow police in Oklahoma as they usher shirtless drunk drivers from arrest to interrogation to sentencing. It premieres on December 1 at 9pm. Like Cops, but without all the domestic violence, DUI is sure to the live up to The Learning Channel's high standards, set by indisputably enriching shows like Extreme Couponing and The 650-lb Virgin.
