    If the phrase "from the producers of the hit series "Toddlers & Tiaras," and "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" sounds like a recommendation, then you'll probably enjoy the bitter rivalries of the series' REAL stars: the ironically uncheery moms.

    Cheer Perfection is numbing in its ordinariness--dull, trivial and never, ever outrageous.

    The mothers are reasonably interchangeable in the early going, and most of them fit an instant type--many overweight, cultivating the image of someone who either saw better days or never enjoyed them, and who now lives vicariously through her daughter.

    The producers don't even pretend to focus on the girls, however. They focus on the parents, a not very endearing bunch whose ongoing mental games with each other and whose drive to push their daughters creates the drama TV cares about.

    Ok, in watching this show for the first time, the cheerleaders need to add ballet lessons. They will
    not improve without this extra
    discipline. There is one child in particular who needs to incorporate a weight loss program or she will injure herself. I'm saddened that this issue has not been addressed. The coach and mom's proudly state that they are hard on the girls, so raise the bar! Hair must be in neat buns, stature lifted, all girls wearing same shoes, and enforcing a weight management program for maximum performance, agility, and flexibility. They are absolutely structureless and in need of direction from the coach...Oh, and one more constructive critique: Coach, come to practice in proper athletic attire! T-shirts and thongs, seriously? I only heard you yell - dress up when you go to work you'll get more respect. it represents being professional. Or it's a **** and everything you say goes in one ear and out the other. The goal is to for these girls is strive for excellence both personally and within your team! Full Review »

    So if your going to make a show called "Cheer Perfection" then why is 90% of the show about the obese pathetic mothers and their drama they make specifically to be on the show? Isn't that show called "Toddlers and Tiaras?" Also why not give the ONLY male cheerleader on that squad a spot on the show? Also what was that routine on the baseball field the producers edited to crap and back? This show is not about cheerleading. PERIOD. Wish I had the producers email address to send him this exact post. I get more in depth detail about cheerleading from watching the competitions on ESPN than I do watching this wasted show. They need to think of different angles to create this show! There is WAY more to cheerleading than the annoying, never ending childish drama from adults that wish they could act their age. Also paying the parents to act worse than they already do is pretty lame. Full Review »
