The Jeff Archuleta Story Starring Scott Baio (VIDEO)

News broke this week that Jeff Archuleta, father of "American Idol" runner-up David Archuleta, pleaded no contest to patronizing a prostitute in a Salt Lake City suburb earlier in the year. He paid a fine and if he avoids repeating the crime, it will be expunged from his record. The real severity of the punishment comes not from the courts, but from late night hosts, in this case Jimmy Kimmel.

Kimmel created a mock Hallmark movie about David and Jeff starring Scott "I'm In Charge" Baio, using the arrest and reports that the senior Archuleta was banned from "Idol" rehearsals for stage-parent behavior as fodder. It comes pretty close to what I imagine they'll actually produce for Lifetime in a year.
