Avoid this show?

Not since the debut of The Chevy Chase Show has a show has received such scathing reviews – and this program hasn’t debuted yet.

Upcoming CBS reality show KidNation is coming under such scrutiny, this show could join My Mother, the Car, Me and the Chimp, and Cop Rock in the TV Hall Of Shame.

Arthur Greenwald of TVNewsday (registration may be required) really lays the hammer down of what is likely to be one of television’s worst shows of the upcoming season. One valid point he makes is that the Parents Television Council hasn’t said anything (and won’t say anything) about the horrid conditions children have to work under this show, but would rather raise a stink about a flash of Janet Jackson’s breasts and someone dropping the f-bomb on TV.
