A New Television Low


If any of you have been following the 2007 Writers Guild of America strike, then you know that many of the television networks are running out of new material to cover their airtime.
Then I saw the add for Clash of the Choirs. It’s a reality show that features Michael Bolton, among others, going back to their hometowns to see who can put together the best choir. Check out the video.
Is it just me, or is this one of the lamest show ideas ever? Seriously, what kind of committee made up of people in nicely pressed suits came up with this? I think I’d rather watch Police Cops.
May a miracle occur to help the Writer’s Guild of America get paid so we can have intelligent television. I long for shows that include things like plot and symbolism. I’ve been supporting the Writer’s Guild by reading during the times of shows I would otherwise watch. Yeah, real books with paper and everything.
