TV networks sure like to beat ideas into the ground. Tonight was the debut of Storage Wars New York on A&E. If you've seen the other Storage Wars shows, or their copies, the format is totally familiar. A group of quirky auction hounds buy abandoned storage units and try to find a big score amongst the contents. Is the viewership there to support another one of these? We'll see, but I'd say the concept is starting to get a bit worn out.
One thing I'm surprised about is that one of the Canadian networks, like the Canadian version of Discovery or History, hasn't licensed a Storage Wars Canada series. There is of course Canadian Pickers on History, which fits in the same genre, whatever one would call it, but no direct Canadian version of Storage Wars. It's probably a bit late in the day to cook up one, but when has that ever stopped TV networks and producers?
