Is It Any Good?

Stateside trends featured on the show have included fun fashions, 24-carat-gold facials, and massages with non-venomous snakes. Viewers also get to see cutting-edge products and styles from across the globe, including using cell phones to pay for purchases and creating security systems that scan people's veins. The series also introduces new vocabulary used to describe the hottest fads of the moment, defining words like "skurban" (urban fashion meets skater style) and "acuapparel" (clothing that stimulates acupressure points) to help the less-hip keep up with a hectic, trendy world.

Viewers are invited to visit the show's Web site to get more information on the featured products and services. They can also vote for the outfit they want Tanika to wear on the following week's show, giving them the chance to be trend-setters themselves. CW Now doesn't do much besides spotlight new products and marvel at some of the more lavish and outlandish luxury services available to celebrities and others who are willing and able to pay for them. But it will certainly be attractive to teens who like to be on the cutting edge.
