Come Monday...Duets on ABC

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

First of all, please understand that both my wife and I absolutely love [Kelly Clarkson], which started during the first season of American Idol, which she [won].  Yeah, I know that sounds kinda creepy, but since we are old enough to easily be her parents, it has to be innocent—right?

Anyway, we also love [Jennifer Nettles], who does most of the singing for [Sugarland].  She also knows how to sing a great duet.

Alas, I do not believe that we will be hearing anything like that coming from [Duets].  Well, unless the show gets a whole better than it was in the first episode that aired last Thursday.

No, I cannot point to any one thing as being at the root of the problem, which sounds promising.  On the other hand, I can recall hearing several rather sour notes (both literally and figuratively) throughout the first episode, with not the least of these coming from [John Legend] and [Robin Thicke], which does not bode well for the show at all.

By the way, did you notice something different about that trailer for Duets?  If you didn’t, it had [Lionel Richie] being on show, and he was [replaced by John Legend] before the first episode aired.  Could it be that Richie didn’t want to be part of a train wreck so soon after climbing back to [the top of the charts]?

Of course, I could be wrong.  If you would like to find out, the next episode of Duets is scheduled to air next Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m. CDT.  My wife and I will not be watching, but you are more than welcome to get back to me on how right I am about the show.

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! Well, you might think it's wonderful. Although, I think it would be really hard on Duke.
