Curb the Damn Enthusiasm

I am trying to like the new show "The Singing Bee." However I have a few bones to pick with the concept.

The first of which being the amount of jubilation exhibited by the contestants; my suggestion would be for all of them to be dosed with ADD meds before the cameras start rolling. Seriously, you've made it on the show, concentrate and get the songs right. We honestly don't need that much exaltation. Have some dignity.

While we are speaking of dignity, why do we need the "fly girls" gyrating in the back ground and on the way to each commercial break? Their actual title is the honey bees or some such nonsense. This goes back to my not liking errant dancing while anyone is on stage. We have plenty to focus on with this show, enough with the dancing.

It is a good show if you can get past the aforementioned distractions. If you've seen it, let me know what you think? If you haven't yet and you are up on most song lyrics, you'll enjoy this show.

I have only seen commercials for the show. I am such a sucker for that stuff. I'm afraid Sweetheart would hate it--maybe I could DVR it to watch on my own time.

Depending on the era of songs, I could probably kick ass. My brain is pathetic like that.

You know what I want to know? What is it with television and their lack of creativity. This actually is a great idea for a show, don't get me wrong but...uh...there's another new one called "Don't Forget the Lyrics" which is basically the same exact thing...these new shows come in pairs now huh? ;-)

Still, it's a fun show to watch, and the latter doesn't have dancers, maybe you should check that one out instead! And Wayne Brady is the host, I love him!
