The World's Best: The global talent show sure has won hearts all over but here's why some don't think it will be renewed
The World's Best showcases a lot more variety than just singers and that has caught the attention of fans
The World's Best might be a new reality TV competition series, but it sure has viewers already hooked to it with just four episodes released so far. Premiering just after Super Bowl LIII on CBS in February, the series is already serving major entertainment goals.
Hosted by famous talk show host James Corden, joining the main judging panel are Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, and Faith Hill. Helping them judge, the series also has 50 experts who hail from all over the world. Known as the 'Wall of the World', these judges are experts in various fields of entertainment and will deliver their opinions and help the judges decide a winner.
Last week, when episode 4 aired Wednesday, we witnessed a batch of contestants battle out against each other in a face-off. Now as we wait for the next episode of the battle round to air, fans revealed what they think of the show to date.
Talking about the pros, fans revealed this competition, unlike others, has fewer sob stories. The World's Best also showcases a lot more variety than just singers and that has caught the attention of fans. Fans have taken it a step further and even compared The World's Best to the likes of 'America's Got Talent,' revealing they like CBS' new show better than AGT.
"I like this show a lot more. It feels like AGT back when Howard Stern was a judge. You get a huge variety of acts that you don't see on other shows. Stuff you typically won't see and don't see on shows outside of variety and talent shows. But I think what makes it especially cool is that even the super good acts (Space Cowboy, the soccer juggler from Guinea) don't always go through which makes the Wall of the World all more suspenseful. The standards are held so much higher than AGT and we're not padded out with 30 minute sob stories," wrote a fan.
Another added, "I already enjoy it more than AGT. Shorter episodes with much less needless filler. The wall is a great concept and always gives us some fairly well qualified to judge the act to comment." While some fans revealed their love for the newly premiered series, others said they do not like 'The World's Best' and hope it does not get renewed for another season. And here's why.
Fans revealed they do not like the slow voting process that happens and that there are too many cuts. Apart from this, they revealed that, at times, the judges are too kind when it comes to the scores. "This seems like a 'poor man's' AGT. Not really impressed with the 'world's best' performances. If this is the 'best' the world is in trouble," wrote a fan.
Adding to that another fan said: "I think it is very likely the show gets cancelled. It has been getting very poor TV ratings: Not enough people are watching it. Its audience is close to just half of AGT's." It's too early to talk about whether or not the show will be renewed. Maybe as episodes air, we might get to see more viewers. But as of now let's just keep our fingers crossed and see which act passes through next week's battle round.
'The World's Best' airs every Wednesday on CBS. Check your listings for more information.
