Publisher Comments:

For readers of The Devil Wears Prada and fans of TV shows like American Idol and Americas Got Talent comes Elimination Night, an uproariously funny look at the backstabbing, ego clashes, and 24-7 snafus that transpire behind the scenes of one of the countrys smash talent programs. 

 

Sasha King dreams of being a serious novelist and living the good life with her AWOL hunk of a boyfriend, Brock. But her day job as an assistant producer of Project Icon, the once-mighty ratings juggernaut thats recently taken a hit in the Nielsens ratings, keeps her working nonstop. Shes got her hands full with the shows two new celebrity judges, entrepreneur-actress-singer Bibi Vasquez (“Crew to be forbidden to make eye contact with Artist AT ALL TIMES,” reads her contract) and rock legend Joey Lovecraft, a priapic wild man who doesnt even own a TV (it goes against the teachings of his guru, Tibetan high lama Yutog Gonpo).

 

As the competition among the hopeful, young would-be stars—including the foul-mouthed Mia Pelosi and the chaps-wearing Jimmy Nuggett—heats up, Sasha finds herself constantly putting out fires. A date with a mysterious stranger makes her rethink her devotion to Brock. And then an unexpected revelation rocks her world.

 

A frighteningly smooth host (Wayne Shoreline), muckraking gossip columnists, and powerful people named Nigel round out the pure madcap reading pleasure of Elimination Night, a book so hilariously accurate about the inner workings of the talent show machine that it had to be written anonymously.

Synopsis:

An uproarious satire of a smash TV talent show, told from the point of view of a down-to-earth young woman who finds herself suddenly on the inside.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

The deliciously witty and delightfully dishy novel about life at a glamorous fashion magazine is now a major motion picture from 20th Century Fox, starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, set to open in theaters on June 30.

I don't know why so many people gave this book a low rating. It was well written, and I enjoyed reading it. If you have been around the artist industry, there are people like Miranda Priestly who exist. Maybe that's why I liked this book! I liked the movie a little better than the book to be honest because the story wrapped up better by the end of the film. However, I liked that the book emphasized more of what this girl could do for herself without Miranda's help. Good summer read!
