Entire summer TV schedule declared a failure

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 17th 2009 8:10AM
It's not really possible that every summer premiere on the great Nobody was listening to NBC's The Listener this summer.American broadcast TV schedule crashed and burned, is it?

But, out of all the original programs that premiered on the major networks after the completion of the fall 2008 season, not a single one got traction.

According to analysis reports, you can take your pick from any of the following shows: Defying Gravity, The Superstars, The Listener, Mental, The Philanthropist, Hitched or Ditched, Merlin and Great American Road Trip. All of them bombed -- each hovering just above a one market share.

In fact, you don't need numbers to prove that the fall crop crapped out. Ask your friend what his/her favorite summer replacement show was. You'll be waiting awhile.

Great American Road Trip collides with American Inventor

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 8th 2009 1:00PM
Silvio DiSalvatore - The Great American Road TripI'll admit it upfront, I watched this week's premiere of NBC's Great American Road Trip. What can I say? I enjoy reality series, there was nothing else on TV, plus I had to tune in to NBC to watch and review America's Got Talent.

When the families were presented, I couldn't get over the feeling that I had seen Silvio DiSalvatore before on another reality show. Thanks to IMDb.com I quickly connected the dots ... DiSalvatore appeared on American Inventor, and it wasn't pretty. Considering the "invention" DiSalvatore presented and the response he got from the judges and viewers back then, it wouldn't surprise me if NBC actually asked him and his family to appear on Road Trip. Let's face it, DiSalvatore is quite a character and so was his "invention".

Don't recall what invention DiSalvatore created? Silly video and a link to his official web site after the jump!

Sneak Peek: NBC's Great American Road Trip

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 1st 2009 3:29PM
This is another one of those summer shows I didn't know was coming up until I started seeing ads a few days ago. The Great American Road Trip is NBC's new reality show that sends seven families cross-country, where they engage in various challenges against each other for fame and fortune. Or maybe just fortune.

This could actually be a fun show, sort of The Amazing Race meets Family Double Dare. You know there's going to be families to hate and families to love. Maybe they'll have a challenge where they tie a dog to the bumper and have to keep him alive on the drive to the next state. It starts July 7.
