Musical TV Shows

Hi, everyone! I'm Jessica (Jess) Burkhart and this is my first post for TFC. Yay! Today, I'm talking about music. What's with the sudden surge of shows on TV about music, lyrics and making it in the music business?

FOX has Wayne Brady's Don't Forget the Lyrics. Anyone seen it? Wayne, thankfully he has a good singing voice, sings along with contestants as he/she tries to earn money by singing lyrics. Miss a word and you're outta there!

NBC offers a slightly different variation with Joey Fatone's The Singing Bee. This is a karaoke style game show, again, for knowing lyrics. Plus, there are dancing girls in bee costumes. Sort of. I'm not really sure if that adds anything to the show, but it's a fun contest.

FOX had the now canceled Nashville. The site called it a "docu-soap" that followed young people on the road to Nashville to become a singer. It sounded interesting, but ratings said otherwise.

So, any other shows on TV about music that you watch? Or have you seen any of these?

I haven't seen these programs - I wish I had, I love anything musical! I do watch all the Idols... American, New Zealand, Australia, UK. At the moment in NZ we're getting the Pussy Cat Dolls show - where they're finding a new member - a definite must see!

Welcome to TFC!

I haven't seen any of these (bowing head in shame) the only reality show I watch is about fishing (Deadliest Catch) not music!
Welcome to the cafe!

Thank you all for the welcome! I'm so glad to be here. :)

Lauren, good one! :)

Bev, me too!

Sara, I wanted to watch the PCD show but kept forgetting.

Ooh, Alyson, I'm obsessed with fishing! I'll have to look for that one.

Hi, Teri! :) We sure do end up in the same places.

Welcome, Jess! I've seen both of the first two, but not Nashville. I thought it was a strange upsurge, but whatever makes the ratings!

Hi, Jessica! Welcome!

How about Making the Band? We watched that one years ago when OTown was the group forming. Whatever happened to OTown? Hmmm...

When I subbed at the American School in Japan, I would watch American Idol on Slingbox realtime. The episodes were broadcast on Japanese TV a week or so late, so I was ahead of the students. They were quite impressed when I could consistantly predict who was going to get voted off. *S*
