BROADWAY OR BUST
PBS, 8:00 p.m. ET
SERIES PREMIERE: This three-part nonfiction series has PBS trying to catch the Glee wave, but doing it by filming an existing, high-profile competition. It’s a nationwide effort in which the 60 best performance-arts students from around the country are sent to New York to endure an intense boot camp and compete for roles in a one-shot, one-night, on-Broadway variety-show performance. If this kind of thing had existed when I was in high school, at least three of the 60 finalists would have been from my school. And no, I’m not counting myself. No way in hell.
