  • This classic E! show featured Wayne Newton, and a series of hopeful singers, comics, and even a magician. What’s not to love.

    Even though the show never caught on with the mainstream, it has remained a cult favorite since E! broadcast it last Spring. Never before had a reality show that had been doing so poorly intentionally and repeatedly prolonged its run by having numerous non-elimination episodes.

    Showbiz veteran Wayne Newton took 10 hopefuls and wrung them through the wringer, by tricking them time after time. While the show itself wasn’t always “good,” it was always fun to watch Wayne mess with the contestants. However, it was never fun to watch Wayne himself, as he looked he walked out a plastic factory accident.

    The Entertainer has inspired a new generation of Americans to use phrases like “14 days,” “accolades,” and “you’re all class.”

    All in all, this show needs to come back, and have more characters take the same bad advice again and again. Accolades, Wayne Newton. Accolades.
