Is It Any Good?

In terms of entertainment value, Buzzin' is pretty innocuous, and the plot can be distilled down to this: Shwayze is an inexperienced artist who wants to succeed, Cisco is somewhat more seasoned and likes to party, and Warren tries to keep them both out of trouble. But the fact that Buzzin' is basically on television to advance the group's career -- and, let's face it, sell some records -- is more than a little off-putting. Are these guys really entertaining enough to deserve their own reality show? The ratings will be the judge of that.
