It seems as if it would be hard to be able to produce, cut, edit, and air only a half hour reality show with a concept like this. And FOX seems to have pulled it off fairly well.
The first episode wasn't too bad. The contestants are fairly interesting. There's conflict, which everone always wants to see, so besides JD Roth sounding completely robotic, the first episode was a bit above average.
I'll watch again next week.
