This type of variety, comedy, game show has been done, and done a lot better, all around the world. It has never caught on in the US and this show demonstrates why. While it may be interesting for people from the featured small town, there isn’t any compelling interest for the rest of us to watch.
Signing an unknown foreign guy to host seems to be getting off on the wrong foot. Who is this guy? Is he supposed to be funny? Because he really isn’t. My thinking is that instead of waiting for this show to be cancelled they should voluntarily take it off the air. This might be more appropriate for a cable network on a Sunday afternoon, but it has no business in prime time.
