Antonio Sabato Jr. Joins NBC’s “Circus”


Another day, another reality show greenlit. Coming soon (unfortunately) to a television set, personal computer screen or one of those little dohickeys that I can’t imagine someone wanting to watch television on,  near year will be NBC’s Celebrity Circus. That’s right ladies and germs, step right up to see a motley crew of semi celebs from yesteryear-including former General Hospital, Melrose Place and Bold and the Beautiful heartthrob Antonio Sabato Jr.-perofrm such death defying feats as high-wire acts and trapeze stunts. In addition to Sabato Jr., one-time supermodel Rachel Hunter, Brady Bunch alum Christopher Knight, one-hit-wonder R&B singer Blue Cantrell, someone named "Wee-Man" and Janet Evans will (cough) "star". NSync memberJoey Fatone will serve as ringmaster for the series premiering June 11. Isn’t this like his 17th reality show? How do you go from the number one boy band in the world to Cirque du Soeil for D-Listers?

    What is with D-list celebs and former soap stars always on these reality shows? I guess everyone needs to reclaim their fame somewhere.

    True. LMAO. I’m just sick of all of these reality shows. Give me some classic sitcoms for the present. We will never get another Golden Girls, Living Single, Martin, Fresh Prince, or Friends.

    I think the four major networks have sort of merged with primetime soap with the sitcom. Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, Dirty Sexy Money and to a lesser degree Grey’s Anatomy all mix comedy with soapy drama. Known would have been considered a primetime soap in the 80s, nor would they have been sitcoms because they don’t have a laugh track. It’s the blessing/curse of such hits as Ally McBeal and Sex and the City that we now have "dramedies". Even Gossip Girl, which is a more traditional teen primetime soap is MUCH more hilarious than 90210 was. I don’t think we’ll be seeing any "very special episodes" with Blair addicted to diet pills.
