The judges don't judge

It's cool to see the acts but I am sorry the ones that should be going on don't and the stupid ones fo like the bull jumper and the slash guy. The daredaughter should be the winner. And the judges now it. They don't know how to judge or the power tower is a joke. Need to find away to let the common people vote. Not sure I will watch if there is another session. This show is becoming a joke.

The show is a scam. A true winner never wins. You can tell the judges are not judging. I would not waste your time watching it. Very disappointing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Circus acts, magic, and stunt work have a difficult time translating to television. Viewers are so used to special effects and camera trickery that it's tough to suspend disbelief. They depend on a live audience. Because of this, Go-Big Show is immediately at a disadvantage. They can't even have an in-house live audience at the moment, so instead friends and family members watch the acts on a big screen in a drive-in theater. The competition does a great job bringing in fun performers and telling their stories, but things that would be awe-inspiring live are naturally flatter on the screen. Like other TV talent shows, Go-Big Show is dependent on the reactions from its judges to sell just how good the acts are, so a good amount of the show is celebrities (okay, mostly Snoop Dogg) mugging for the camera.
