‘Kid Nation’ doomed?

In CBS, Internet on August 29, 2007 at 1:59 pm

It’s starting to look like the show will be felled by its bad press before it even airs. There are too many articles, reports and indictments to even begin linking to, but you can put Kid Nation into Google News and get an idea of what I’m talking about.

I’m still curious to see if the show speaks for itself. I do agree, though, that the complaints from the children (and now the unions!) are compelling, and the gag order on the kids and their parents is suspicious. But to borrow a cliche, maybe the ends justify the means.

As of this writing, the show is still scheduled to premiere Wednesday, Sept. 19, on CBS.
