CBS stands by ‘Kid Nation’

In CBS, Reality TV on August 30, 2007 at 10:28 pm

The show is being screened for advertisers in advance of its Sept. 19 debut. “We believe the issues raised about Kid Nation will be resolved when the public sees the first episode,” the network told TV Week in a statement.

Having choked up over the promo on the show’s website (and gotten a better concept of parameters of the project), I’m inclined to give the show a chance.

Sure, it probably violated the spirit if not the letter of the law regarding labor (children and adults alike, according to the unions). And of course some parents are going to be upset. (No one seems to mention in the various news reports that are swirling that each of the 40 kids was free to leave at any time.)

But you can’t un-produce the show, and while the legal ramifications play out, it’s quite possible that Kid Nation will make for captivating television.

  1. I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I bet almost every frigid old bat that is complaining about this show, would have been the first in line to be on it when they were kid’s. There are just to many people out there with absolutely nothing better to do than gripe and complain about every little thing THEY disapprove of. It’s a t.v. show people, get a life.
