Tommy Lee: Cracking at College

Love Tommy Lee Goes to College, airing this week on NBC. The rock drummer audits classes at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, lives in a dorm room (redecorated with flatscreen TV, full bar and cappuccino machine) and tries out for the drumline in the marching band. "Tell us a little something about yourself," says the stern band director. Answers Lee, "Uh, I sold 40 million records."

Lee also observes his real college classmates cheating on tests and getting fall-down drunk at 1 in the afternoon.

For more, read my pal Bruce Miller's interview with Lee in the Sioux City Journal.

Honestly, is this self-serving celebrity reality show malarky going to ever end? I'm so sorry that I wasted even a few of the finite number of thoughts I will have in this life time considering this idiodic television show.

from TV guide, sep 4-10 edition:
"jeers to tommy lee goes to college for cheating. the end credits of NBC's reality show disclose that the drummer never enrolled at teh University of Nebraska-Lincoln and "some elements have been produced and/or edited for comedy." So why isn't it funny?"...i disagree on the funny part -- a lot of time it is -- but a major jeers for faking it all.
