In a city so cultured that it boasts not one, but two excellent community college radio stations, Los Angeles doesn't play when it comes to our entertainment dollar.

We've seen it all, most of it was eh, and we're barraged daily by opportunities to see major stars perform so when Joey Lawrence, Lisa Rinna, Drew Lachey and Joey McIntyre, along with 2006 winner Emmitt Smith and loser Mario Lopez, we weren't surprised when people wouldn't pay more than $15 to sit in the cheap seats of Staples tonight. Nor were we surprised when there was so little demand for this half-Staples event.

Could it be because LA didn't even want to see Emmitt when he was a football player either? Update: Frisco seemed to like it.
