28 Reasons You're Bummed You Never Watched "The Pussycat Dolls Presents"

It was sort-of a Making the Band rip-off, but the CW's two-season show was endlessly entertaining in its own right.

1. It had a really unecessarily long title: The Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll


Season one aired in 2007 under the pretense that the group was looking for a seventh member of the band, though the gossiped-about truth was that Nicole Scherzinger was trying to leave and launch her solo career.


3. Every episode was basically the same. The girls would get an inspiring video message from PCD announcing that week's theme.

The girls would rehearse a song or two all week and then perform at the end of the week for the judges and one would be eliminated.


9. They performed burlesque-y versions of old songs.

11. Occasionally they wouldn't have to dance, and would just sing pop hits while walking around a stage with a stripper pole on it.

This is Melissa R. tearing up during Aerosmith's "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" because she was "thinking of [her] grandma."

13. The second season of the show focused on creating a new pop group made of three members.

"The idea of Girlicious is it's new, it's fresh, it's young. Girlicious will be a little bit more street, a little bit of an urban vibe. It's what every girl will aspire to be." (Emphasis added.)


18. There was more butchering of classic songs.
