"They're (Star Search contestants) back..."
30 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hold on to your 'programs'. An all new "Star Search" will be premiering on CBS January 8th 2003. Personally, I can't wait. I hope it's everything the first one was. Most everybody I know loved the original, and I could never figure out why it went off the air. It seems they've narrowed the categories somewhat, however. No dancers, bands, or acting competitions, according to CBS.com's promo-web link.
