Game Shows

Does anyone else find it interesting that there are two new karaoke-related game shows coming to prime time? I think it's a good idea and would probably be a fun family-oriented show to watch... I wonder which one will be the bigger hit? I think the one on NBC is called "The Singing Bee" and the one on Fox is called "Don't Forget the Lyrics"?

Is anyone else suspicious about the contestants on these shows and other ones like "Deal or No Deal" or "Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader"? They're not like the ones you see on the classic game shows like "Wheel of Fortune" or "Jeopardy" or "Family Feud" and stuff. It seems like the people on the newer shows are all actors or wannabe actors and it totally bugs me. I want the every day Joe Schmoe! Otherwise, I feel like I'm being scammed.

I'm very excited about the Singing Bee. Looks hilarious. And yes, reality shows are filled with aspiring actors...just a fact of life. Always been like that though. Real World, Blind Date, etc...
