I've always been a fan of Glee (though I've caught a few reruns recently and have been disappointed by how the eps hold up- apart from the musical numbers). And I certainly love a cheesy competition-style reality show.
So when I saw ads a few weeks back for The Glee Project, I set up a series record. We're a few weeks in and so far so good. I've agreed with both eliminations so far and am intrigued to see what happens. For my money that's a great start. So far, my favourite contestant is Cameron. He's a cool/nerdy hybrid guy that's got a great vibe.
What surprises me most about it is that it's airing on Sky. Glee airs on E4. When I did a little internet research, I learned that it aired on Oxygen in America. What's up with that?
Why is this quality reality show that links to a phenomenally successful TV show being aired on a low-profile non-major network like Oxygen? Why didn't Fox snap up this show?
Am I missing something?
