    A do-good reality show that makes a big deal about how morally superior it is.

    Where "Party" goes awry is by trying to be an hour. That's twice as long as it should be. There's more fat in it than a Popeye's biscuit.
  3. The lavishing [of gifts] never abates, until what you're witnessing feels less like a party than an icky display of instant wealth meant to leave the rest of us drooling, wondering what about our own lives might get us on a TV show.
  4. 0
    You can practically feel the IQ points leaking out your ears as you watch.
  5. Something feels wrong about a TV "reality show" team swooping into the hotel where a displaced Hurricane Katrina family has been living since September and carting two girls out to Las Vegas for a fancy birthday party.

    It is overlong, contrived and utterly out of place on UPN. It plays like something left over that the network needs to discard before going out of business.

    UPN's new series has a shot -- in the sweepstakes for the worst reality show of all time.
  8. I guess this is supposed to be another "feel-good" reality show, but it comes off more like an exercise in wretched excess.

    [It] leads the league in overreactions and on-cue hugs, making it seem just too phony to have any real impact.

    In television terms, a program like this can be produced for pocket change, which explains, at least partly, its presence on the UPN schedule.

    My friends all owe me 10 bucks! I knew this show would only last a week.

    The New York Post called this show (...overlong, contrived and utterly out of place.) Yep, that pretty much describes UPN!
