The Singing B- Or Worse
Did you watch "The Singing Bee" last night? Do you plan to watch Fox's identical premise, "Don't Forget The Lyrics" tonight? In each show, people must correctly sing lyrics to popular songs.
I watched "The Singing Bee" and would give it a C-. They must have packed the studio audience with karaoke fanatics for the premiere, and it was kinda spooky how into they were. If you missed it, NBC repeats at 8:30 p.m. today (Chs 5, 2).
I'm curious to see any differences in the format on Fox with Wayne Brady (9:30 p.m. today, Chs 19, 45). Maybe Fox can build in a better reason for me to become invested in the show, beyond simply seeing if somebody knows the correct lyrics to a song each week. Other than for that reason, I don't see myself tuning in each week....
If you watched last night -- or plan to tonight -- post your reviews here. I'm interested to see if these two networks (which rushed these shows on the air) are onto something, or if these are just another summer yawn.
