Reminder - WB to re-air both episodes of Superstar USA tonight

I might be easily entertained, but I think this show is funny as hell. It doesn't hurt that Vitamin C is a total hottie either .

Wow, this show isn't even a week old and WB has already devoted 6 hours of air time to it. Amazing.

I like the show, but what I hate most is every ten or fifteen minutes they remind me why they are doing the show and what the "Superstars" will get when they are flown to Hollywood. I hope they get past that after the first two episodes.

So have they already decided the winner? I take it they won't do live voting like they do for American Idol? If they do take voting, I vote for the nerdy "Celebration" singer to win. Nina Diva is bad, but she's just a tad too polished in my book to deserve to win. But she probably will win, which is sad because I think there is far worse than her on the show.

I think it's already been taped.

The best line of the show so far "It's fitting that was a song by Climax because that was better than sex."

Already taped and they already dropped the bomb on them. Check out the way one of those guys (the extreme nerdy looking guy the judges got up and bumped to his singing) reacted before and after he found out

Toonie is that guy and the thread starter is his girlfriend who just got the news that he was being taped for a new show...

I don't mean for this to be a threadcrap, but why would anyone watch a show that's celebrates cruelty just for the sake of being cruel?

I'll add to that a bit: TVGuide had a blurb in their new issue saying the producers tell the audience the singers are "special" kids (like with terminal cancer or something) so they don't boo.

Because american Idol gets some of it's highest ratings during the first few episodes when they show the terrible among the good. It's proven success. Ask yourself why people laugh when someone gets a kick to the crotch on tv. people like to laugh at others.

During this week at least, Monday and Tuesday will be original airings. In my neck of the woods, they will rerun them Sunday afternoon.

It's just amazing how many musically delusional people are willing to appear on camera for a shot at stardom.

You mean like Fear Factor (well, I guess they technically volunteer for that, but it's still like watching people torture themselves). Or any of the other reality shows with a "twist" like Joe Millionaire or Joe Schmo or Average Joe (lots of Joes...)? Or even at it's base, America's Funniest Home Videos?

Granted, I can see your case, and this show might take things a little too far. But people have always taken delight in other people's sufferings. My former boss would refuse to watch any "reality" show at all. He equated them to ancient Rome, where people would delight at Gladiators killing each other, or lions killing people, etc. And while no one's dying, the public (including me at times) gets entertainment watching people belittled, berated, embarassed, or even hurt.

And the thing is, the people on these shows usually don't mind because they want the fame or the money...

I don't feel sorry for one single contestant on Superstar because they all knew what the joke was at the end of the taping of all the episodes, and they all signed agreements to be shown on TV doing all that stupid stuff they do, and the winner won some good prizes. I've seen some of them on TV crying they were duped. Please, spare me. They were let in on the joke at the end and they are TV because they wanted to be and signed release forms, not because they were duped. The whole bits where they are going on TV crying because they got duped is pure BS because you know they got paid for their time on TV, and you know they are getting paid well for their time to appear on these other shows. Cry me a river, little JT.

Well, they may have signed release forms before they realized they were duped... I'm sure a lot of these people aren't rocket scientists, and didn't bother to read the fine print in the contract. The contract probably gave their release, allowing the WB to air their segment, and didn't promise anything about picking the best singers. I'm sure the contract was carefully worded, though anyone would assume that such a contest would be about the best and not the worst.

That being said, they did sign the release in some fashion, so they hardly had reason to complain.
