USA re-schedules 'It Takes a Choir' featuring Brashear High ... again!

Clearly someone at USA has no faith in "It Takes a Choir," a reality show that filmed at Pittsburgh Brashear High School in December 2012 and has been scheduled and then postponed multiple times (see here and here and here).

Now the show has yet another premiere date that does nothing to instill confidence in the show's prospects for success.

USA is writing off the show, airing all the episodes between 12 and 8 p.m. on Dec, 29. The Brashear episode will air second, 1-2 p.m.

"It Takes a Choir" is based on BBC America's 2010 import "The Choir." Both shows feature choir master Gareth Malone attempting to bring unity to schools or communities through music. The USA version is set in the U.S.

It's not altogether surprising that USA soured on "It Takes a Choir." The network also bombed with the similarly feel-good show "The Moment" in 2013. On the other hand, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" knock-off "Chrisley Knows Best" has been more successful, so look for USA to give its audience what they want, which won't be more feel-good shows like "It Takes a Choir."

USA is clearly burning "It Takes a Choir" off to get it off the books by the end of the tax year.
