Super Group could be good
OK, I am a sucker for a good reality show (yes, there are actually some good ones). So I was excited, yet a little skeptical, when I saw a commercial for "Super Group" on VH1. The premise is that they put 5 "rock stars" in a house for 12 days to form a band. At the end of the 12 days, they are expected to perform a concert with their new material.

The band consists of Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Ted Nugent, Evan Seinfeld (Biohazard), Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Jason Bonham (son of John). I think the producers of the show picked this line-up as much for their personalities (and the potential conflicts) as they did for their talent. Legendary rock manager Doc McGhee is charged with keeping them in line and on schedule.

The first episode was pretty good (they arrived in their gaudy Vegas mansion and found out who their bandmates are), so I've set up a Season Pass in the ol' TiVo.
