Rock Star: Supernova
Premieres: Wednesday, July 5, at 8pm ET followed by a special Thursday broadcast of the second episode July 6, after the season premiere of Big Brother
When to catch it: Tuesdays at 9pm ET and Wednesdays at 8pm ET on CBS
Starring: Cohosts Dave Navarro and Brooke Burke, newly formed band Supernova composed of former Motley Crüe drummer (and former NBC reality show star) Tommy Lee, former Metallica guitarist Jason Newsted, and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke
In a nutshell: Rock Star is back for a second season and once again they will look for a lead singer, this time for a newly formed band called Supernova, featuring Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted and Gilby Clarke. The trio will follow the same path as first season band INXS, using Rock Star to determine who will be the group's lead singer and then head into the studio to record an album and launch a world tour.
On Tuesdays, the contestants perform (while also talking behind each other's backs and stealing songs their fellow contestants want to sing), and on Wednesdays the results are announced. Keep an eye out for some familiar faces from the first season. Some of the same contestants will be taking the stage and battling it out for the opportunity to be Supernova's new super singer!
