America's Getting Old Top Model

So based on the ratings of the highly hyped Cycle 11 premiere last Wednesday, America seems to be tired of Tyra and Co. and hardly seems phased by the show's first transgender contestant.

The episode was down 11% from its Cycle 10 premiere in February and 32% from its premiere last September and quite frankly I'm not surprised.

The episode was too full of gimmicks for my liking. Tyra and Co. had a Star Trek/Space Odessy theme full with them being beamed to and from shoot locations and the contestants had a space themed photo-shoot.

I hope they plan on pulling out all the stops this season because my attention is quickly drifting.
