Will this show work?

We think having that big Super Bowl audience from the start is going to help, as will having a great host in James Corden and then also Drew Barrymore, Faith Hill, and RuPaul Charles as the primary judges. We cover a lot of talent competitions at CarterMatt (and also on our YouTube channel), but this one has the basic architecture to be one that has staying power. It’s at least doing something with its global reach that is different than most other talent shows out there.
