It is Monday and cable is the place to be for your TV viewing pleasure tonight. StarTomorrow may be interesting but how many music competitions can there be before people get tired of them. With The One on ABC cancelled after just two weeks I would have to say not too many more. So, this one better have something special. It sounds like American Idol for undiscovered bands with some Internet voting thrown in. Will you be playing record producer and voting for your favorites? Or, will this just be another lame summer show that most people avoid?
