Apparently there are only so many celebrities who’re willing to join the reality TV circus. After winning an intense bidding war over a revival of Circus of the Stars, ABC has decided that the show just can’t go on after all.
Seems rival network NBC has snapped up all the talent for its circus reality show, Celebrity Circus. ABC cites casting problems as its reason behind the decision to pull the plug on Circus of the Stars, despite being pleased with the way the show was coming together creatively.
NBC’s circus show can hardly be the only reason behind the star shortage on reality TV. The trend toward “celebreality” has skyrocketed, with such shows as Dancing with the Stars and Celebrity Apprentice taking the reality world by storm. With so many stars already in the unscripted primetime fray, the list of availables is getting shorter and shorter. ABC was forced to make a decision: a not-so-celebrity cast or no show at all.
NBC, meanwhile, is still planning to release Celebrity Circus, and is in casting as we speak.

NBC has announced its plan to air Celebrity Circus, based on an Endemol format that’s been a huge hit in Portugal and Argentina, as part of its All-American Summer lineup.
Celebrity Circus, a competition-based reality show that will have “real” circus performers judging celebs on Cirque du Soleil-style circus stunts, promises to be “just as loud and noisy” as NBC’s winter slam-dunk, American Gladiators.
ABC is hoping that a new Circus of the Stars will catch on the way Dancing with the Stars has, and is in an intense bidding war for the show. Going for Dancing with the Stars-style drama rather than Gladiators-style boisterousness, ABC hopes Circus of the Stars will satisfy both the big top bug and reality fever.
Air dates and times have not yet been announced for either show. Stay tuned to Reality TV Magazine for news and announcements, as they come available.
