Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Singing Competition TV Shows

Jimmy Kimmel was going hard at reality singing competitions in his ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ monologue on Thursday night (May 24), including the latest which joins him on the ABC lineup – ‘Duets’. The show, which features John Legend, and Robin Thicke, joins ‘American Idol’ and ‘The X Factor’ on FOX, as well as ‘The Voice’ on NBC in the genre. Kimmel joked:

We’re excited because we have a new show premiere tonight here on ABC, a singing competition show. It’s about time somebody did one of those.

Each of the new show’s stars say they are in search of undiscovered talent, which I don’t think we have anymore, to be honest with you. In fact, I think we should start forcing some of our existing celebrities back into obscurity.

Here’s how a TV pitch meeting goes. “Ok, so, it’s a singing competition, and…” “Stop right there, we love it. We’re putting it on.”

A new ‘American Idol’ winner for the fourth year in a row is the white kid with the guitar. This one’s name is Phillip Phillips. It will be hard to forget someone with that name, but I have every confidence that we will.
