    American Inventor or not?

    I just read that this Simon Cowell produced show starts on March 16. I thought they already aired this before but I may be watching a different show. I saw one episode while i was flipping through the channels and piqued my interest. There were I think 4 judges but Simon is not one of them. The inventors show their invention and then the judges make some comments. Then when all contestants are done deliberating, the judges talk about amongst themselves on who they should eliminate. Most of the inventors were men and the one they eliminated was this team of two women. I never saw the succeeding episodes, for some reason I forgot about it. Anyone know what this show was?

    "Made in the USA" was the show you saw. I never saw it, but do remember that Joy Mangano was one of the judges.

    Thank you. That means Simon Cowell doesn't really have an original idea.

    Original Idea

    I think I heard that there was a lawsuit suing Simon Cowell for stealing the idea.

    It's interesting that there are so many shows on. There's a similar show on in Australia. There's a pretty inside look discussion of the issue of Simon Cowell stealing the idea.

    I can't wait for the new show. I think it looks pretty interesting and they are doing a ton of commercials for it.

    I just saw a commercial for it on vh1, but I didn't catch the air date. Probably sometime this summer after Idol's over.

    Not necessarily. It almost seems like summer outside right now.

    I've been laughing at a commercial for this program where one of the judges says: "So. Your invention is a stick?"

    Yeah Qboots.. I love that lil teaser when the judge says that. Last night I saw another teaser promo of one of the contestants going ape-shat toward the camera and ranting on about something. I will definately tune in to watch this..I just hope they follow through with showing the WHOLE thing and don't stop the series midway through the season.

    Didn't Made in the USA stop showing episodes because of the lacking in viewers? Just one day it was gone.
    I'm sorta getting mixed up.. I think Made in the USA is the one that's hosted by Cliffy (Cheers), right?
    The one I'm thinking about is titled something else.....

    I think the commercials ruined a funny and entertaining show. I will keep watching though, I enjoyed it.
