I should check out "Hooking Up" and "Brat Camp," but I'm now embarrassed to admit that I like "Rockstar INXS" in a kitschy sort of way.

You know I'm all for kitsch, and I think too many reality show "judges" do a terrible job trying to mimic Simon Cowell, but the comments from Navarro and the band is what just really kills this show for me. I mean, Navarro especially has nothing constructive or critical to say EVER. And the performers aren't all that good -- most of them simply look to be following every bad rock star cliche at a night of karaoke. And finally, every time Brooke Burke describes the contestants as the group of "rockers," I cringe at how cheesy it is and how some producer thinks that word is giving the show some sort of cool quotient.

Yeah, I've actually now stopped watching ... probably!

You're right--they're not *really* rockers or great performers, and Navarro's "you go girl" feedback is about as substantive as something from Paula Abdul. Maybe it's the show's bad car wreck quality that I like. I've also found the show's gender politics interesting. I'm curious to see if INXS is willing to choose a female lead singer and to see how that might change the dynamic of the band.

Maybe *my* cool quotient has melted away from this heat wave.....

No, not all reality shows are created equal!

I been curious why they are called reality shows, and not televised auditions or job interviews.

The best reality shows I can think off would be Cops, and the nightly news; that's truely reality.
