Is ‘The Next Great American Band’ A Reality Hit?

Next Great American BandReality TV has been good for the FOX network. The success of American Idol completely changed the once last-place channel. Now, FOX is determined to find repeat success with the one formula that works for them (besides cartoons). After the summer series On The Lot disappointed execs with low ratings, FOX blazed into the fall season with several new reality shows, two of them musically-themed. To balance out this act of bravery, FOX chose a known star to head the third reality show. Now, viewers can watch Gordon Ramsay in Kitchen Nightmares on Wednesdays, after catching a rare successful drama for FOX on Tuesdays (House). Thursdays are jam-packed with game shows…so, is anyone even sticking with FOX until Friday, the very end of the week?

The network had better hope so, as this is the time slot where the much-touted The Next Great American Band two-hour debut extravaganza was shoved at the end of a packed TV week. The ambitious docu-style reality drama Nashville is already kicked off the schedule, leaving FOX’s musical hopes riding solely on finding a great American band…or, at least, viewers.

Assessing (and Ignoring) the New Fall Season

Kitchen NightmaresAs I type this, I’m listening to the new Radiohead album, In Rainbows, and I’m in a terrifically good mood.  See, I love Radiohead like Tyra Banks loves … well, Tyra Banks, and so you would think that this good mood would make me put together a list of wonderful things about the new fall TV season.

Yeah, not so much.  To be honest, I haven’t watched a lot of the new fall network TV shows.  But it’s worthwhile to take a look at these shows and for me to say what I watched, what I thought, and why I didn’t watch a lot of them.  Well, it’s worthwhile for me anyway.  Plus it goes well with Radiohead (not really, but it’s not like I’m gonna stop listening).  Here goes:
