Kid NationThe show hasn't even debuted yet, but there's already controversy (though we thought one might be coming).

A parent of one of the kids on the new CBS Survivor/Lord of the Flies reality show Kid Nation has filed a complaint with New Mexico officials saying that the kids on the show were neglected. She says that one girl had her face burned by hot grease (she was cooking) and that other kids needed medical help after accidentally drinking bleach.

Most of the kids and parents have said great things about the show since filming ended, but a couple of parents and kids are saying they wouldn't do it again and it was a lot of work.

In case you haven't heard, Kid Nation is about 40 kids who are left alone in a deserted New Mexico town (actually old movie sets) to see if they can join together and create a society from scratch. It premieres September 19 at 8pm.
