season two of Making the Band starts tonight.
Making the Band is back tonight for season two, which still follows the adventures of Ashley, Dan, Trevor, Erik and Jacob, also known as O-Town. Thankfully, we were wrong–tonight’s ep starts will start with O-Town’s wretched Miss America performance and the “rude awakening” that follows. Some reviews hint at a season that will focus on the “personal problems of one member and the increasing egomania of another”; others just opt for obnoxious condescension and boy band cliches.
