You know what really surprises me? Considering the success of the show “Dancing with the Stars,” why haven’t the networks created more “with the stars” type shows? I mean Biggest Loser has a franchise and they’ve expanded to couple’s edition and home edition and whatever the hell else they have.
Why hasn’t the “with the stars” franchise expanded into other markets? Don’t you think there’s a ton of room for potential here? I sure as hell do. Exploiting stars is something we can all embrace!
With that said, here are six “with the stars” ideas I think would kick ass….
Singing with the Stars
I figured I would start off simple. Since “Dancing” is so successful I don’t see a reason to stray too far from the main topic that got everyone so interested. I don’t know about you guys but I think it would be fun as hell to see celebrities sing their favorite songs and get judged. I think you’d get two things: One, celebrities you didn’t know they had great voices and 2. Celebrities who think they can sing but really suck.
Sports with the Stars
Does anyone remember that Shaq Vs. show? Shaquille O’Neal would square off against world class athletes playing their sports in handicapped situations. For example he’d go against a world class sprinter in a race but would have half a lap lead or something like that. I think there are tons of opportunities with this topic. You can get celebrities to go against real pro athletes or square off against each other. Again, tons of possibilities.
Surviving with the Stars
You could really do anything here. I mean we could certainly have ‘The Real World” with the stars which we kind of already had right? I forget the name of the show but I know there’s some dumb shows with D List celebs all cooped up in a house together. Well this one could be celebrities stranded on an island somewhere with no food to eat. I would definitely get a kick out of that, especially if Lindsay Lohan participated.
