Default Next Great American Band

I watched the premier for this tonight, and I think I have an idea of how it's going to play out. Are there any sites taking action on this? Does anyone who watched want to make any last-longer bets? Any other thoughts about the show?

I want to like this show more, but the level of talent is really disappointing. I could barely pick out the melody in most of the Dylan covers. Nonetheless, the AI style competition will probably keep me hooked. I've no idea about the wagering.

I noticed also that they've come up with very precise clones of the AI judges. Guess they didn't want to stray from The Formula. I do like the Simon knock-off, "You arranged that song within an inch of its life!", but unfortunately Sheila E is doing a good impression of Paula's vapidness, and the Randy clone is just boring, so I guess he fits in, too.

I think SixWire will win this. Franklin Bridge = musical masturbation. I'd give Dot Dot Dot an outside chance, just because they have an interesting look. Tres Bien could do better if they would start to take the competition seriously.

I'm actually enjoying this show a lot more, now that they've weeded out the really bad acts. That girl group was truly horrible.
