It’s not simply the Many Saints of Newark, Succession, Yellowstone, and Lord of the Rings it’s a must to make time for over the subsequent 12 months. It’s additionally The Activist, a minimum of in line with a portion of busy Twitter customers.
CBS introduced Friday the “first-of-its-kind competition series” will function Usher, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Julianne Hough because the hosts who will decide activist contestants.
Just what all of us demanded: three elitist celebrities talking to pandering non-activists pretending to make a change.
Fittingly, the judges will measure the contestants through “online engagement and social metrics.” Got that? What charges on social media will seal the win.
The present launched the next particulars:
“The three teams have one ultimate goal: to create impactful movements that amplify their message, drive action, and advance them to the G20 Summit in Rome, Italy. There, they will meet with world leaders in the hope of securing funding and awareness for their causes. The team that receives the largest commitment is celebrated as the overall winner at the finale, which will also feature musical performances by some of the world’s most passionate artists.”
It’s nice to see Usher not donating his cash to a trigger however cashing in on a CBS paycheck. Truly a world-changing effort from him.
I might say set your DVRs, however this one might require reside viewing. I imply, the blue-checks might spoil the present’s outcomes up-to-the-minute on Twitter.
Activism used to imply one thing. Brave folks as soon as put themselves on the market to make a change. However, as we speak, activism is used as a promotional software. Keep in thoughts, the media and popular culture take into account each LeBron James and Colin Kaepernick “activists.” James and Kaepernick are two of the largest grandstanding opportunists this nation has. They are frauds who reply to the identical kind of businessmen they name evil in public.
That stated, the activists on The Activist gained’t be that dangerous. They can’t be. At least, I don’t suppose so.
The Activist premieres on Oct. 22. Ahh, a Friday, the night time followers of 2021 activism are all the time residence. Smart reserving by CBS.
