E! News brings another reality show to Sunday line-up

Joining the E! Network’s numerous real­ity show favorites including “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “Married to Jo­nas” is “Chasing the Saturdays,” a new se­ries about British girl band The Saturdays.

Premiering in two parts on Sunday and Monday at 10 p.m., the show follows Una Healy, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford and Vanessa White as they try to break into stardom in the United States. Upon arrival in America, part one showed the girls dealing with homesick­ness, jet lag and big changes in their per­sonal lives all while they prepare to per­form at their very first U.S. concert, which just so happens to be at a MTV Video Mu­sic Awards after party.

Despite their success in Britain as one of the top girl groups of all time, the episode showed that The Saturdays still get ner­vous before any big performance. As Mol­lie stated, once they hit the stage and got into “performance mode” everything went smoothly.

In the second installment of the pre­miere, the girls shot a music video for their US single, “What About Us” in the midst of a Los Angeles heat wave. Vanessa, the youngest of the group, not only has to deal with the heat but also relationship problems that weigh heavily on her ability to focus. Although the final product makes the task look incredibly simple, it is a nice change of pace to see the hard work and time commit­ment that actually goes into filming a very short video.

Like any quintessential E! reality se­ries, there was drama – about closet size and couch comfort, that is – as well as some tears as the girls faced the reality of Frankie’s ongoing battle with depression. Although there were no life-changing ele­ments of the premiere, “Chasing the Satur­days” did provide entertainment that was hard to look away from.
