I might consider watching a show like that.
Truthfully, I do usually watch the first couple episodes of Idol just for the Train Wrecks. Once it gets "serious", I tune out completely. The train wrecks are hilarious though. I absolutely love 'em.
I absolutely loved this show:
yes - I watched that one - it was hilarious - although I did feel sorry for the contestants who really thought they were on a legitimate talent show.
actually, this was sort of what I had in mind in my OP. This, along with a show (The Swan) that was out around the same time as Superstar. I was thinking, what if they took some of these train-wrecks and did a musical version - they could call it American Swan - or why must the US be the center of the music world - take it global and have International Swan.
this would combine the best of American Idol, Superstar, the Swan, and the whole Susan Boyle phenomenon. It would probably be the type of show that would draw a large audience (which would please the sponsors), while ALSO actually making people squirm.
