I watched the entire hour and a half of Superstars last night and I'm still not sure I get this show. The premise seems to be taking pseudo-celebrities and pairing them with a pro-athlete and then forcing them to do different athletic tasks. This seems simple enough, and it is how the old show worked, but I guess I just expected some sort of twist or ... at the very least something new and different. Maybe we could have seen the sports stars try and train the celebrities, but the problem seems to be that the sports stars are new to many of these tasks too. I can't imagine that Terrell Owens encounters a lot of cargo nets in his football training.
Well, at least its not another dancing show. ABC has given the greenlight to a trainwreck in the making called Superstars. Not to be confused with the current trainwreck Superstars of Dance. Instead this one will pair celebrities (D-List or lower, I'm sure) with professional athletes to compete in events like swimming, biking, running and kayaking. Wow. That sounds... riveting. There's not a hell of a lot more exciting than watching people run.
If you love The Real Housewives, SNL and football (not necessarily altogether or in that order), then you came to the right place because it's all right here.
