Circus Performer Antonio Sabato Jr. Faces Death!

Antonio Sabato Jr. has quite the juggling act going on these days, balancing his derring-do as a Celebrity Circus performer (Wednesdays at 10 pm/ET, on NBC) with his return to Port Charles by way of SOAPnet's General Hospital: Night Shift. Sabato shared with us a look inside the two gigs, one utterly foreign and frightful, the other familiar and fun.

A TV Guider Runs Off and Joins the (Celebrity) Circus

Warning: Joining NBC's Celebrity Circus could be hazardous to your health. "On [other shows], they can break a nail," executive producer Matt Kunitz tells me. "On our show, you can break a bone." No kidding. So far, Christopher "My Fair Brady" Knight has cracked his arm while training for the six-episode series, supermodel Rachel Hunter has injured her neck, actress Stacey Dash (Clueless) has nearly broken two ribs, and singer Blu Cantrell is so bruised she has to cover up to avoid really awkward conversations. Suddenly, volunteering to join this show does not sound like a smart move. "Don't worry. It's crazy safe," I'm told. read more

Jeers: Just Another Media Circus

Jeers to Celebrity Circus for being far from the greatest show on Earth. I was impressed by some of the feats performed by Antonio Sabato, Jr., Stacey Dash and Christopher Knight. But turning it into a standard-issue competition with a grinning host (the omnipresent Joey Fatone), viewer voting and a weekly elimination brings NBC's new reality show crashing to Earth. Worst of all is the obligatory trio of judges: trapeze artist Aurelia Cats (whose most coherent comment was meowing at Sabato, Jr.), Olympic gymnast Mitch Gaylord (hey, anyone remember American Anthem?) and flamboyant choreographer Louie Spence (a Bruno Tonioli wannabe). CBS' Circus of the Stars didn't need this kind of gimmickry—or a weekly time slot.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine! read more

Antonio Sabato Jr. Takes You behind Celebrity Circus

Contrary to popular belief, the latest reality series that follows a wide array of C-List celebs in a ridiculous environment isn't a part of a VH1 roster. NBC's Celebrity Circus pits the likes of Christopher Knight (Peter Brady) and Antonio Sabato Jr. (every soap known to man) against one another in death-defying circus stunts — all while filming in front of a live audience. Our money is on Wee-Man! read more
