This actually isn't so stupid from a potential ratings interest standpoint..... it combines the popularity of music competition shows and the popularity of college sports (which is a sizable part popular because of the large alumni bases of the various schools).

Isn't that what the sing-off is?

It is, but, as I stated, they are bringing into it the close to obsession with anything involving the college they went to that many people have, which is a pretty good ratings ploy.

This will be a big hit with that essential 18- to 24-year old demographic

FrancoFile: This is what the competitors have to aspire to.


I wish more people would do that.  No "soulful renditions", no noodling around notes, no farking around with phrasing or rhythm or anything else.  Just sing the farking song and stop trying to show off.

Not even close.  Imagine someone you didn't know singing a different song in the same fashion.
You know what happens? Sounds like the same song.  Oh, maybe not to the trained judge, but that's not who your potential TV audience is.

We've seen the college level talent on The SingOff.  It's quite good.  But those groups haven't really won when confronted with smaller more purpose driven groups.
Yes, I'm judging any new a capella show based on The SingOff, but that IS the current competition.  And that show is only back on the air because NBC is freaking desperate.

While I'm looking forward to this, I'm not going to hold out much hope.

So basically the audition round... but a whole show of it.

These folks have actual talent and can work collaboratively to produce amazing music.   I can't wait to see this show.

Season 3 of The Sing-Off spawned this awesomeness. Good luck beating that. Mind you, some of the college groups were quite entertaining.

It took three seasons, but Pentatonix is the Kelly Clarkson of the show to date: Good enough for prime time, never would have made a dime without the show.
/current tour is 57 dates long.
//you don't have to like 'em, but they didn't get to where they are with a brilliant marketing campaign.
