Fall TV Review: SCHOOL PRIDE

Now that ABC has jettisoned SECRET MILLIONAIRE and BODY OF PROOF to mid-season, SCHOOL PRIDE on NBC becomes the last of the new fall shows to air. And the result isn't very good. Even before ratings came in that the show bombed, I sampled the pilot and was immediately assualted with the stench of a fake show. Now, I DO applaud the producers' efforts to give extreme makeovers to dilapitated public schools...but when the presentation is so obviously phoney and staged (such as when one guy goes to contractors and the cameras capture the stunned looks at having to work for free..then after the commercial break the contractors agree to do the job - cue music - the end result is so obvously manufactured that it took me right out of the moment. Sorry, PRIDE. D+
