“Good-natured reality entourage sitcom.”
“Benefits to no end from the presence of Cho’s parents.”
We have come to the time when starring in a reality show no longer means you have exhausted all the other options — that you, the star, might represent a reasonably well-functioning, otherwise successful human being rather than the sort of train wreck that the form initially seemed to favor and from whose cluelessness viewers drew their dark enjoyment. In other words, you do not have to be Anna Nicole Smith, or Whitney and Bobby to want to get into this game.

Finally a reason to tune in.”
“Cho is finally doing her own thing, her own uncharted way. And she’s a pioneer and a role model — X-rated potty mouth and all.”
Celebrity reality shows assault us from every corner of our cable box — Corey, Tori, Hogan, Snoop and Denise Richards. But now, thanks to Margaret Cho, there’s finally a reason to tune in to one of these puppies without feeling the sticky film of shame.

This is like a gift from the summer Friday gods! We’ve gotten a hold of the entire first episode of The Cho Show, the new Margaret Cho reality show premiering next week on VH1. (Having the same birth-parents has its benefits, even though Best Week Ever totally won’t talk to us at family reunions.)
I’ve been leery of getting too excited about The Cho Show, because I adore Margaret (seen her five times) and was worried that a reality show wouldn’t be able to capture her magic. But from the looks of the first episode, it’s actually a great fit.
In the first ep, Margaret debates whether or not to accept a “Korean of the Year” award, and goes on a star-studded personal journey as she weighs her options. Of course, Margaret’s parents, her gays, her hilarious (and little!) assistant, Selene, and her fellow Korean comics all weigh in, providing all the off-color humor and inappropriate fake accents that we’ve come to expect from Cho.
All I can say is, Kathy Griffin better watch her back. There’s a new sheriff in town!
