CBS announces "Star Search" grand finale "do over" to air Wednesday, April 2nd
By Reality TV World staff, 03/27/2003
CBS has announced that it will broadcast the remaining categories from the previously interrupted "Star Search" finale during the premiere edition of the series third round of competition on Wednesday, April 2 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT tape delayed) on the CBS Television Network.
During the March 19 finale episode, "Star Search" was preempted 33 minutes into the Eastern and Central time zone broadcast for CBS News coverage of "America at War." During the March 19 broadcast, the Junior Singer and Young Dancer rendered winners, but, only the first comedian was able to perform before the show was cut short.
On April 2, the Junior Singer and Young Dancer winners from the March 19 broadcast will be recapped for audiences while the second comedian and Adult Singers will be able to perform to determine the winners in each category. Immediately after completing the finale, the next round of STAR SEARCH will begin with new performers competing in each category. The new tournament featuring 13 original episodes will be broadcast twice weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT both nights).
"Star Search" is a one-hour series featuring live tournament-style competitions in four categories – adult singer, junior singer, comic and dance – culminating in the grand-prize winning STAR in each category. A panel of both celebrity judges and viewers at home does voting via the Internet who will determine the winners and $100,000 grand prize winner in each category.
"Star Search" is produced by 2929 Productions. Andrew Golder is executive producer.
