Culture City Follow Up on the Rating for Show No.3 of "The Next Great American Band"

this is a Update, following up last night dreadfully Sir Elton John Cover night for the Next Great American Band on Fox Last night and i wish i have some better news but to tell you the turht even with Detroit Own "The Muggs" and ROCKET [The only two band that i know on the show]on it.

This show is DOA [dead on Arrived]

Before i give week Rating let look at the 1st two weeks for comparison:

[All in the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo]

Week 1 - 10/19[Audition show]
3.57 million viewers/1.5 rating/5 share
Week 2 - 10/26[1st live Studio show]
2.87 million viewers and a 1.2 rating/4 share

This week well you might want to called this show[And no disrespect to the muggs and ROCKET who i like}"The Next Worst Band in American.

The show Bottom out in with a grand total of

2.31 million and a Rating in the Age 18-49 Demo of 1.0/3 Share

Now that is Down by 560,000 viewers from last week show when all 12 bands cover Bob Dylan, with a rating like that it look like the viewer move on to something else earther on TV or going out to a real gig with real music.

Now the show is going to go up until it finally on December 21th, but to be on point i don't know if it will be on until the finally on Dec. 21th

As For the Muggs will they move on is also a big question mark, last night there where doing there original, "Should've Learned My Lesson.", but totally bomb with there Sir Elton Cover "I Guess That's Why They Call it the Blues," but the Judges were also hard on Front man Danny Methric vocals.

Even Judge Ian (Dicko) Dickson suggest that It's time for a three-piece to become a four piece. Get a singer."

Will see it 'The Muggs Survived next week, But where will it aired that the big question with rating for the show this poor i don't know if is going to be on Fox any time longer, they could move it to the FX Cable channel or some thing i did not mention on the post on Monday, they could move it to the Fox Owned "My Network TV" for the rest of the run.

What ever happened will let you know.
and come back early this evening for video from last night show with video from the song Elton sang.

The Culture City Review of Show Three of "The Next Great AMerican Band with Detroit "The Muggs"

Well, people who read this blog site i don't know what is tougher, Sitting in Front of a computer for about three or four hours listening to a lot of bands i have never ever heard before and going to there my space page to listen to a couple of songs to see if this band is worldly for NEW MUSIC TUESDAY [every Tuesday on this site] or listen to two really bad hours of really bad music with a cover song trown in for good measure.

That what i have listen to tonight on show number three of the lonely watch The Next Great American Bands on Fox, but the bigger question is did the muggs Survived last week and Take the stage to cover a song from the great songwriting team of all time Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin.

But from the look of thing it would be a long, Long Wait, Unlike American Idols, "So you think you can dance" and "Dancing with the stars" this show do not have a Follow up result show the day after the live show so instead of a result show the band have no idea who will get voted off the show, they get to wait in a room that look like a medium size Eurovision song contest green room

and the band Order was announced one by one meaning the Top 10 bands that made it get to play on stage and the two bands that recied the lowest amount of votes have to be told that your not going on it just like getting to the gig and learning in the man in Charge the venue is Double Book.

This week the bands did song in reverse unlike last week when they did the cover and a Oregoal song well this week it was in Reverse, they did one of there own song and the cover.

Our Own "The Muggs" was band number Eight out of the ten bands that play on this week show they played the song "Shoud've Learn my Lesson" and they did a really good job with the song as they as they preform live but when they did the cover of Sir Elton "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues," from his Mult-Platinum 1983 album "Too Low For Zero" and aldought i like the muggs, the song that they cover was awful as kid growning up listen to radio back in the 80's when radio was still cool, this song was a great song but after listening to there version it was total un recognisable it was total mess up with the guitar and worst i could understand the words to the song making this cover hard to listen to.

The Three Judges of Doom: Goo Goo Dolls Johnny Rzeznik, Drummer Sheila E. and Ian "Dicko" Dickson was not feeling it,Johnny like the Original song they played but he called the band choice of the Sir Elton Song a poor Chocie of a song, Sheila E. also was disappointed with the song and question the vocals of frontman Danny Metric, Dicko keep it very short said the tune was rubbish and it sound like Bart Sampson's on helium and suggest the band hired a forth member of the band for the vocal and let Danny fouce on the Guitar work.

OK, i will agreed there Sir Elton Version of the song did stunk, but to add Fourth members to as well know and very well like Detroit Band is just plane Crazy if it work well with a very tight three piece band, adding a fourth member just for the vocals will only mess up the dynamic of the band and worst would be just plane bad, come on Dick-o do you know any three pieces band that are good in both singing and playing a guitar at the same time and if you do pleased e-mail to this blog site at the right side of the Menu.

The Other bands i Digg, the only All Female band in the completion "ROCKET" did a really good song original song but they too did a bad cover Sir Elton song they did what else "Rocket Man" and to tell you the thurt is was not that good, and after the two song set the Judges was compiling big time on the vocal control of there lead singer Lauren who all three did not like, telling her she need work on the vocal.

Now after last week cover of Bob Dylan they have to cut off two band from the show and i am sorry to say it was not "dot,dot,dot" sad to say they they live to play this week, they was a little better and a little bit better looking but they sound too poppy and they look like a hybrey of "My Chemical Romance" and "Panic at the Disco'

this week the two un lucky bands that was let go was NYC indie band "The Hatch" and LA soul pop band "the Likes of You" where sent home goning back to the indie scene where they be long.

And one more thing i think all of the bands Elton Johns cover tonight totally sucks to tell you the thurh they where totally bad, it would worst if the same band preform all the song in a karaoke bar ouch!, and worst it Sir Elton was watching this he would puck big time.

Will know if the Muggs Survived Next week show Next Friday, but the big question is where will it be on after the 1st two show have avg. over 3 millions viewers and have rank lower then the CW Network "WWE Friday Night Smackdown", but some say the show will complete it run and who know it will be on because of the pending writer strike that go into effect on Monday.

so check back on Saturday for the Full result.

And For those who was dis a poited with all those Sir Elton cover

he is a classic video of the most Famost Sir Elton Cover all all time and was introduce by Bernie Taupin, you know what song it is and the man who sing it.

Rocket Man
words by Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin.

The Indie New Round Up

Now you talk about a day this is it.

Yes there was big news around the Detroit Music Secen today i dont know where to being, But if you are not in the know or just not insert, this is Big News, first let start off with the big news of the day.

De-tour the Locially Base pop culture Blog which start in May of this year and had there Launch party this September at the Stick compelx and at the CAID to a huge respond will do it aging, Next spring there are putting on the De-Tour Rock City Music Fessival that will be held next spring at the Majestic Theatre Center[Magic Stick, Majestic Theater, and Garden Bowl] . in what the press released put out today that the msuic Festival will echoing the music and mayhem of Detour’s now-infamous September ‘07 launch party.

The Detour Rock City Music festival will have over 60 local acts are scheduled to perform, and it will indie rock as alway but it will inclued other music gender as well and that inclued pop, hip-hop, noise music, metal, and more.

The Line up will not be announced untill December, but this part of the story is very, inserting as well, the dates for De-tour Rock City, it will be held on Wednesday, March 5th to Saturday, March 8th, now you are asking why is that insering if any one who know the Detroit Music as well that is the same exctic time as the Metrotimes Hamtramck Blowout which as you already know start on a wednesday and end on a Saturday and the Pre Party before the blow out in Hantramck is at guess where Majestic Theatre Center.

The Moment the PR came down to the Reguarl Press and the blogging Press [This One Included]many of the readers was posting commet began calling it the end of the Hamtramck blow out with Post like this:

"Taking one look at this and one can infer that the annual Hamtramck Metro Times Blowout has celebrated it’s final year."

Either that, or it’s going to be a head-to-head battle royal.

From the De-Tour Site

“Let’s ruin the other guy’s party by having ours on the same night. That way we can see who gets more people to come and who is the better magazine.”

From the Web Vomit Site

that leave a big question: and that is Will there be a Hamtramck Blowout this year? now i have Been reading the this on the Detroit Base Blog all day and that is a big question and one other factor to think off the publisher and co-founder De-tour is Anthony Morrow who was the Ad Market Dirctor for the Metro Times for a number of years, but after this year Blowout Morrow and Other MT staffer that include Ex-music Editor Johnny Loftus either Left, Quit, or Got Fired.

So one have to wonder have to wonder is this payback to the metrotimes?, I dont know because i did not contact either the Metrotimes or Detour For commet, but for one thing i know for sure they will not be going Head to Head on the same weekend because they made spilt the fans down the Middle.

One Possable that maybee the metrotimes may move the Blow out for a week later to March 12th to the 15th, but the bigger problum is would fan goes to the festival a week later, the Blowout have always been on the First weekend of March, would the music fans would go to two festival back to back.

I was wipeout back in Septmeber by going to Four Music Festival as yes they where all back[Hamtramck Festival] to back[Dally in the Alley] to back[The People Art Festival at the Russell insteral Center] to back[The Detour Launce Party].

Or have the last Note have been played at the Blowout, now just to let you know where only Four Months away untill the the event, so between Now and Early March keep up date as if we know anything on who playing the Rock City Music Festival, But for now you can check on the De-Tour web sight at

and if you want more "Blanche" Madness they recently played the BBC Elecrict Proms last week in the UK and better yet it was recorded for the BBC Web sight so you can see the whole set no the BBC Electic Proms Web Sight at there gig is only up there untill Sunday.

Video From Friday Night The Next Great American Band on Fox with Detroit own Muggs.

And now here some Video from show two of the show that even if "the Muggs" were not would not even watch the show, But Since the Muggs played well on Friday Night i am covering it against my own will.

it a few bands from Show Two of "The Next Great American Band" on Fox, now if this show was really, really good i would put every band on it but if you have been reading my blog sight i have not been likeing the show even with "The Muggs" was on the show.

so i will be putting video from the bands i like, did like but have back away and did some what enjoy.

The Muggs
[which included a report from the Friday night FOX 2 News at 10 PM and pleased forgive the crapped video during the report.]

Verdict: Great


Dylan song: Bad
Original: very Good

Dot,Dot, Dot

Verdict: Yuck!

Light of Doom

Verdict: hey they was really good

The Rest: Don't even Ask i be bored to sleep, Big time that make me want to change the channel to a red wings game.

Culture City Follow up a look at the Rating with "The Next Great American Band" with the Muggs on it

Well, it was a good weekend it the Detroit metro area i went to the Wayne state game and worst i came to the game late aging i show up near the 2nd quarter and the bad news the Wayne State Warriors loss there 6th game of the season losing to Northwood 45-25 making there record a disappointing 3-6 with two game left.

at least the team did a little bit better than "The Next Great American Band" on FOX, if you read my post on Saturday Morning i did a brake down of show two "The Next Great American Band" on FOX, now if you want the full review that including detroit own "The Muggs" you can Scrool down or you can
link here.

But for those of you who don't follow ratings and i know a lot of you don't follow them, the first live studio show of the "America Idols" like show with rock bands [If you want to call the rest rock bands] went on Friday Night at and for thouse of you think the live studio show would boost up the show rating a little bit, think aging.

Show 2 Lost almost 20% of there viewer from the opening show last week, the show lost almost 740,000 viewers and the show Sunk to a total rating of 1.2 in the 18 to 49 demo and finish dead last for the night, It even drew barley over half of what the network finish 4th place finisher the CW which program wrestling also from 8-10 pm and it drew 4.61 millions viewers and a 1.4 and drew a Quarter less then CBS which top the network for the night[Show aired on that night on that time Ghost Whisperer and Moonlight]

What i think happened why this show flop the way it did you have to get out of the 313 and Beyond the 313[Wayne],248[Macomb],810[Oakland], and 734[Washtenaw]where "The Muggs" have big time support, may be the aveage Viewers did watch this show last week or a Indie fan was looking for some new fans and watch this show and saw some horrible crappy music or did not like the music at all did not came back, Ok some made Fans with "The Muggs"[ or "ROCKET" [] on my space, but did not come back.

and also you can see that the public is getting tried of all the show that have a American Idols spin on it, i am tried of it too myself, and also it was on a Friday Night which is the second worst night of the week next to Saturday night Because a lot of them are going out meeting there friend or going to a gig for some real music.

So despite "The Muggs" begin on the show [and i hoped you voted for them last Friday over and over aging.] The Show is not a big hit it is a big time dud, and with November sweep coming up [used by network and station to set ads rates base on viewers]the show is on shakey ground and my not survived on the network during the full run [which run until the Finally on December 21th].

So you are asking what will happened with the show if the show sink any lower let say under 2 millions viewers or worst a rating under 1.0, well hear are some Secnardio that could Happened.

Secnardo No.1: Despite the Low viewership, Fox keep it on the Scheduled, it 50-50 it could happened they just keep it on Friday and viewer will just let it alone and just disappeared.

Secnardo No.2: It get pulled for the FOX line-up and move it to there own Cable Channel FX, Now this is more likely to happens when show like this total bomb total bomb it move to a cable network to run out it run.

It have happened once before back in 2004 when FOX put Boxer Oscar Dela Hoya boxing reality show The Next Great Champ it came out months before NBC own boxing reality show "The Contender" after only four show of bad rating the show was cancelled and the rest of the run was on Fox Sports Net.

Secnardo No.3: FOX pulled the show and move it on-line to there website [], well this is highly unlikely, yes a lot of you are watching TV online these days, but it since watching at a set time is imposable in the watch what every you watch world, SO this is unlikely.

Secnardo No.4: it is also highly unlikely, that Fox pulled the Plug on the show all together, now if the Other Network saw the rating like that it would be pulled ASAP, but it on FOX and the production company [19 Entertainment] put a lot of money to be the next big thing so to pulled it from the line-up is not a good Idea, But it happened once before.

Last Summer about two month after i began the blog sight[and thanks god i did not blog about this] ABC aired a idols meet Big Brothers reality singing series called The One: Making a Music Star, it also aired on CBC in Canada because it was hosted by a Canadian George Stroumboulopoulos[Which you can see on his show called "The Hour" which you can see on Ch.9 - CBET-TV]it even permed the CBC National Newscast Call "The National" in Eastern Canada, The Show was a big time flop and it was pulled after two least watch show and all the show never compete it run.

So that what i think what will happened to the show, and since i am a Detroiter and where all behind "The Muggs" i will be watching the show aging on Friday night at the H.Q.[Because i was watching the show at Small's on Friday and only 11 people show up which make a boring night with the red wings game flip flop in between. so after the show [if the Muggs survived round One of the Voting] i will put up the the 1-888 Number so you can vote over and over aging.

And yes it will aired at 8 PM on FOX [WJBK-TV, FOX 2]
