The Next Best Thing is here!
The Next Best Thing debuted on Wednesday night, and ABC's newest reality show isn't as bad as you might think!
The basic premise is that celebrity impersonators audition to be "The Next Best Thing." Even though its much more "low-tech" than most other reality shows, the content is juicier than most!
The judges sit behind a tiny table and the room is decked out in tacky blue cloth, but they aren't afraid to be mean and cruel. Comedians Jeffrey Ross, Lisa Ann Walter and Elon Gold are basically everything we want the three American Idol judges to be! They are harsh bitches. There is no other way to put it.
Over the next few weeks, The Next Best Thing will audition impersonators from cities all over the country and the finalist will duke it out for the title. So far we've seen everything from David Letterman to Dolly Parton, but from what I understand there is a lot more to come!
