(10PM, VH1) series premiere
LaLaLand, you've been warned: New York's on her way to town, and she's looking to crash the A-list.
That would be Tiffany "New York" Pollard, of course, the Flavor Flav reject who rode her 'Flavor of Love' reality show spin-off, 'I Love New York,' to the top of the reality world A-list and now wants to be a serious A-list actress. Seriously.
So she's leaving behind Tailor Made, the fiancé she met on Seasoon 2, and setting up camp in Hollywood, where she hopes to add to a slim resume that so far includes a stint playing herself on an episode of 'Nip/Tuck.' When the feisty diva hits town, she decides the best way to make her intentions known is to throw a party.
But despite her A-list aspirations for the guest list, the group of people who actually show up provide a bit of a reality check.
The show's premiere will also feature highlights from the auditions and reveal the Top 12 Finalists who will be crooning their way into your hearts this summer. I know Nashville Star sounds like the country music version of American Idol but judge John Rich begs to differ. Read what he said about the show, any comparisons to Idol, and Paula Abdul back the NBC / Universal summer press event held in May.
Nashville Star premieres on Monday June 9th, 9-11 p.m. ET, on NBC. Will you be watching?

A day hasn't gone by where we haven't received some sort of tip or email asking us, the TV Squad, how to get on [insert reality show here]. Unfortunately no, Simon Cowell does not work for us, and Donald Trump isn't my BFF, so we really can't help all that much.
The folks at RealityWanted.com often send us a list of new and existing reality shows that are looking for new, er, talent, and they've given us permission to make mention of them here. We'll try to make this a regular feature as often as we get a new list.
This time we have Nashville Star, America's Next Top Model, Master of Dance and other new shows.
The Black Donnellys (Mon., 10PM, NBC) series premiere
There are no original ideas in the movies -- everything's a sequel, prequel or "re-imagining." So, it's no surprise that this new show from Oscar-winning movie producers Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco (Crash) tries to be an Irish version of The Sopranos. The Donnellys comprise four brothers: hothead Jimmy, gambling Kevin, artistic Tommy and baby Sean. When Jimmy kidnaps Kevin's bookie, the brothers find themselves facing off against the Italian mob.
Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? (Tue., 9:30PM, Fox) series premiere
Class is in session! Reality TV maestro Mark Burnett presents this new game show that tests just how much adults have forgotten since their elementary school days. Over three days this week, host Jeff Foxworthy will asks questions about everything from math to grammer to American history. And instead of using a lifeline or asking the mob, contestants can turn to some pint-sized experts: a group of real fifth graders.
Last year's Winter Olympics opened my eyes to an unfamiliar sport: snowboard cross. How awesome is a superfast downhill race where competitors jostle each other while facing jumps, banks and moguls? And you gotta love the wipeouts. Twenty-year-old snowboarding star Shaun White won't be competing in the cross, but he will take on the the superpipe and slopestyle.
Season 5 of Nashville Star premieres on Thursday, January 11th at 10 pm on USA.
So, tell me. Do you watch Nashville Star?
Plus, you can upload your own photo to the Nashville Star website and put yourself in a music video. Kinda corny, I know. But it's the kind of corny that kills time in the cubicle.
How many of y'all watch that there country music singing contest?
