Just watched the first episode. There are a lot of talented queens. I am looking forward to the season.
I am disappointed in who went home. I think the right decision was made if you judge by the lip synch, but the more interesting queen went home.
I am fairly sure it is not considered a game show, not in that way at least. It is reality entertainment and I wouldn't be surprised if the contract they sign says that CBS can do anything they want. Up to, and including, picking the winner.
