Really? People don't like it? Me and DH find it really funny! I liked the warning about not texting as you may still be charged and social services might take your children away. The performers are usually very good too I think.
I am sure it is a giant piss take out of the whole talent show genre. In which case, IT's hysterically funny! It MUST be! That chest wig and head wig on "Neil Diamond" was the funniest thing on telly all week!
I think that the original was as creepy as fuck, and reminded me of the film Single White Female. This is just fun.
