New From Nick
If you were to stumble upon How to Rock, the new show on kid's network Nickelodeon, for the first time, you'd be excused for thinking that you've seen it before. It is pretty exactly like all the other Nick sitcoms: pretty people, silly situations, some kind of showbiz element, and broad overacting from everyone involved. In short, nothing that anyone over the age of twelve would probably be interested in. Except...did I mention the pretty people? Here's 19-year-old singer/actor/model Max Schneider, who has appeared on Broadway, co-starred with Madonna in a big Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign, and like everybody who is interested in a music career these days, uploads homemade music videos on YouTube. Also, you could grate cheese on his abs and slice deli meat on his cheekbones. Not that I notice such things.
