Everyone's trying to get a little piece of that American Idol pie. Even TLC's hopping onto the bandwagon with their horrible sounding new show, which pits office workers against each other in a singing competition. Whatever happened to company baseball teams? At least then there was no assault on my tender eardrums. Joey "I used to be in N'Sync and had another singing show where tone deaf people mangled lyrics" Fatone is co-hosting with Spice Girls Mel B. How'd she get involved in this auditory nightmare? Anyway, the Dancing With the Stars alums will try to snag a few more minutes of fame by surprising offices and doing on-site auditions (good god, please don't come here!), then the chosen few will get to perform a singing/dancing number in a competition against another group from another business. While I'm sure that every office has one secret karaoke addict, that doesn't mean that viewers should have to hear their warbling, unless there is a bunch of alcohol involved. I've heard some of my former co-workers trying out tunes in the hallways. Not pretty. Not to mention that I'm sure bosses around the country will be thrilled about the workplace productivity when The Singing Office comes town in this time of economic troubles. For now, I'll stick to trying to beat Rock Band... at home, where no one has to hear me.
