Secret Talents already yanked

Nashville, Online Nation, and Viva Laughlin: You have some company.

Joining those three shows in the "canceled after just a few episodes" department is Secret Talents of the Stars, which was hurried off the stage after just one showing, reports Variety.

As its creative title suggests, the show featured celebrities performing feats for which they're not known. In Tuesday's episode, country singer Clint Black performed stand-up comedy, singer Mya tap danced, figure skater Sasha Cohen showed off her contortionist skills, and Star Trek's George Takei sang a country song. And we wonder why it was canceled.

Its timeslot will be filled by 48 Hours for the next two weeks, after which Shark returns on April 29 alongside repeats of The Unit.

I agree with jamim_jamin fire the people who let it air. If the execs had any taste they wouldn't had let the show even leave the brain storming rooms let alone be eired in the first place. so fire the execs too!!

P.A.R.T (People Against Reality Television) I am starting this movement to get people together to influence TV stations to stop making any more reality TV programs. They need to get they're heads out of the ground, and there pocket books out, and stop making generic programs and start making quality television. P.A.R.T(people against reality television)

Copy and paste this (P.A.R.T.) info for your descriptions and Board signatures and blogs. or write your own (P.A.R.T.) rants or slogans

I DVRed it, but haven't watched yet. I guess I'll just put it on delete, since it apparently wasn't very good.

Sounded like a Writer's Strike replacement idea that couldn't be stopped until it was too late. Now that the writers are back, they'll probably can a whole bunch of these sorry excuses for programming before we find out.

Aw! I really loved how awful that show was! Seriously it was like "Pink Lady and Jeff" caliber, and I wanted more of this delightfully awful competition. Did anyone notice John O'Hurley's hands trembling? He's not that old, is he?

This one was really just begging for cancellation. What was CBS thinking? They put this crap on TV at the same time cancelling good original programming like Jericho?

Uh, who cares? I vaugely remember seeing an ad for this and was going to watch if I heard any stars I really like are announced. Blah, gross. I normally hate early cancellations but no lost love here.

All reality tv must be destroyed!

Yeah, it was horrible. The only bright spot was Mya's tap dancing...which didn't even make it to the next round, which is beyone me. The rest of it was total crap. O'Hurley, yeah we like, but he just didn't fit the bill. Any time a reality show is cancelled it makes me feel oh so great inside! :)

Ah, it always makes me happy to see a reality show canceled. Whichever exec gave this the green light needs to be taken out back and beaten with a rubber hose.

Now, if only we could carry out a similar effect on par with mass-reality-genocide, I could die a happy man. Come on, folks, let's form a mob and kill Idol!
