Podcasting Day: WB Superstar with Jamie Kelly! 🌭

In 2004, a struggling TV network decided to create their own American Idol, but entirely out of the good parts. And in 2004, that meant the hilarious audition failures. WB’s Superstar USA was a short-sighted fool’s idea. It was like trying to recreate your bachelor party weekend out of just the diarrhea part. To be clear, this was a show designed to lure bad singers into a Truman Show trap and sometimes try to fuck them!

Listen here, or wherever you get podcasts, to this mean-spirited prank with no exit strategy that went on far too long and may have ruined televised humiliation forever! Our guest is our own audio engineer Jamie Kelly, who is right now learning this podcast isn’t real and Tone Loc and Vitamin C have been watching her pointlessly edit fake discussions about karate movies for months. Everyone you love is robots; you are on DZ’s Superstar 900! Congratulations, Jamie!

I remember watching this when it was on and even for me with a shithead 20 year old attitude I thought this show was fucked up.

I think it’s a little jarring to do a screencap gag about a character with the same name as the guest you’re introducing in the following paragraph, if you’re taking editorial notes from down here.

It’s not a screencap gag, it’s a 100% accurate quote from the show. We did not make that up as a reference to Jamie Kelly. If your objection is that the real quote also contains the name of a woman with the same first name as the guest on the show… okay? That’s reality though. Take it up with Briggs.
