Pilot Review: Star


Star (Wednesdays at 9:00 on Fox, Beginning January 4)

ABC has Shonda Rhimes. NBC has Dick Wolf. CBS has Chuck Lorre. The CW has Greg Berlanti. Now Fox has Lee Daniels, the latest talent to be tapped for branding on the network following the monster success of Empire. Unfortunately for Fox, the Daniels brand is already starting to sour; Star isn't nearly as successful in this subsequent attempt to capture the passion, energy, and lightning that made Empire must see TV in its first season.
