    OMG! How funny, cause yep...that's it! The Swan was on.
    Then there are Airline episodes, Fear Factor, American Chopper, etc..etc..

    I really think it'll pick up in it's ratings after tonight.

    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    I'm new here and just going to mention a couple things you all might find interesting. I know for a fact that at least ONE of the final 12 on The WB's Superstar USA is an actor. This person is a friend of mine. Besides that, what you see is not necessarily what happened. For example, most of the "witty comebacks" the judges are coming up with seemingly spontaneously are actually scripted and filmed later and edited in. If you watch carefully you can tell. Notice you never see the contestants in the frame with the judges when they're saying witty things? Something to take note of next time you watch. Also, those "original" auditions, are actually the second day callbacks and the contestants were told what to sing for them. If you have a chance, read the disclaimer at the end of the show. It's pretty revealing. Reality?

    I suspect Star helped kill "The Restaurant" by merely watching it. Of course, many people would thank her for that.

    I did notice the disclaimer, although (as always) it was near impossible to read that fast... I was going to read the second half of it tonight..hopefully.
    If someone can get a screenshot of it and post it here, that would be great! TiVo'rs??

    Don't forget Playing It Straight. May it rest in peace.

    But, The Swan didn't do anything ridiculously outstanding, and even though it had the AI lead-in, you would've expected the AI fans to go to this, instead of that show.

    The show is funny. I bet it will pick up with word of mouth. I know I have been telling everyone about it.
