Songland on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new music competition series that focuses on songwriters rather than performers. The songwriters will get to pitch songs to a panel of stars including the Jonas Brothers, Macklemore, John Legend, Meghan Trainor, OneRepublic and several others. Including OneRepublic is a bit of a cop-out because one of the producer/coaches is Ryan Tedder and OneRepublic is basically Ryan Tedder’s band to perform his own songs with. He does also write and produce songs for other people, but it’s a little weird that he’s both a coach and an artist who will have a chance to pick a winning song. The other two producers involved are Ester Dean who has written for Katy Perry and Rihanna, and Shane McAnally who primarily works in country music as a writer, producer, and artist. If you’ve ever wanted to see how the pop music sausage gets made, this might be a good show for you.
