    Kid Nation - About the show


    Kid Nation

    Premieres Wednesday, September 19
    8PM ET/PT
    CBS


    40 Kids for 40 days with no grown-ups. Can they do it?

    40 Kids have 40 days to build a brave new world without adults to help or hinder their efforts. Can they do it? These Kids, ages 8-15, will turn a ghost town into their new home. They will cook their own meals, clean their own outhouses, haul their own water and even run their own businesses including the old town saloon (root beer only). Through it all, they'll cope with regular childhood emotions and situations: homesickness, peer pressure and the urge to break every rule they've ever known.

    Will they stick it out? In the end, will these Kids prove to everyone, including their parents, they have the vision to build a better world than the pioneers who came before them? And just as importantly, will they come together as a cohesive unit, or will they abandon all responsibility and succumb to the childhood temptations that lead to round-the-clock chaos? Don't miss this intriguing series.

    Wide variety of kids. I think it will be interesting to see who comes out as a leader.
    If your not the lead dog the scenery never changes

    I'm sure I'm not the first to say this, but . . . wow! It's Lord of the Flies, the reality show!

    I think its a nice idea since it could show there's more to children than adults think *glares at any member of FORT over 30! *

    Re: Kid Nation - About the show

    I've been thinking about this and wonder just how much interaction there is between the kids and adults, because I'm sure there are plenty of adults around while this is being filmed, and since it's difficult for the producers not to have their fingers in every single thing that's going on, I don't know how 'authentic' the "40 Kids for 40 days with no grown-ups. Can they do it?" concept will be.

    Whenever they say no adults, I don't believe that.

    I'm sure there are going to be adults like to the side for aid or behind the camera or something.

    I don't know how it will all play out, so I'll see. But I can't watch it because it premiere the same time as ANTM 9 so I will be in Model Frenzy that day.

    Lord of the Flies was the first thought that came to my mind too.

    I wasn't too big on this when I first heard about it, but after reading some of the bios of the kids, I'm a little bit curious. Enough at least to tune in for the first couple of shows.
