I do wish ABC had come up with another name for this show. There are too many other “Duets” on TV that it makes me think of, both on Fox. One was a comedy back when Fox was first starting out, and the other was Celebrity Duets, which was somewhat like this, I guess. There’s also the movie Duets that features my favorite version ever of Freebird Nevertheless, I’m looking just as forward to this incarnation on ABC. Check in with other favorite shows you may have missed at TV-Links.
