Has anyone else seen this strange variety show? In the 2 episodes I have watched, I have seen 2 magician acts get "eliminated" before their 30 seconds was up. But then the older gent dressed as dracula, playing an accordion makes it through his act. *sigh*

I haven't seen that show yet. What channel is it even on?
You mean if they say it's "bad" before your 30 seconds are up, you get eliminated?
Thanks, for I don't know anything about the show or how it works but have seen commercials for it. Smile Smile

Mack, yes the audience holds these little controllers that have the ability to supposedly move this meter. If the meter goes into the red before 30 seconds is up they are eliminated and are out. The show is pretty hokey and I wouldnt be suprised if it's rigged.

Flip, I dont know about "Sylvester the jester", whats his act?

Ok, thank you because I didn't know how the game worked in the first place. I wouldn't doubt if it was rigged.
I'm going to have to try to find that show and see for myself sometime.
Thanks.

I should point out that of the two magic acts, only one got eliminated, and to call it a magic act is really a travesty. They were the "Magic Chicks", two giggly, ditsy, sequined blonds with horrible stage presence, canned stilted patter, and garage sale magic tricks who were on the show in most likelihood just so that there would be a bad enough act to get eliminated.
