"America's Got Talent"...
well.. not really
It seems that we not only need a national show to find the next big singer, but also one to find the best juggler, magician, ventriloquist, elderly rapper, puppeteer and dog trainer. In the vacuum of entertainment we apparently have, NBC has set out to fill that with a ... well, a talent show
. And boy, it was a two-hour event tonight with the most network-backed advertising of any other show. It was... well, cute for a while. It was also a bit, well. .. cheeky. The British guy was nicer than Simon Scowl
. And Brandy is refreshing and cute... but Hasselhoff
? Is he actually drunk or on muscle relaxers? "oh yeah, you're fourteen"
he says in a creepy, dead stare. Myspace has nothing to worry about net pedophiles with him on TV. Oh well, that's where entertainment is going and I suppose it's not all that
bad. At least it gets the family together making costumes, listening to Prince and practicing in the garage on their new dance moves.
ABC should respond with a new fall show... "America Has Leadership" and we could pick the next President and congress. Now that
would be some fricken entertainment and maybe solve some problems along the way..."I'm sorry Mr. President, but Piers just buzzed you off."
