The jokes land often enough on this curious spoof of reality-show competitions, but they're so deadpan and dry that the show's likely to make you smile rather than chortle. Ridiculous reality shows in general, and reality competitions in particular, are ripe for mockery, and that's been done before, with Burning Love, The Hotwives of Orlando, and even 30 Rock, which had America's Kidz Got Singing. America's Next Weatherman is both less silly and a lot stranger; in fact, it's hard to tell if some of the contestants and the show's "celebrity" judges are in on the joke.

It is pretty fun watching contestants argue over what a comet is likely to do to your body if it hits you in the head or to witness them having to hold up weighted microphones as cup after cup of coffee is stacked on top. The whole thing is odd to amusing and worth a look, whether or not it's destined for clear skies.
