40 kids for 40 days with no grownups. The premier is still weeks away (Sept. 19), but controversy (possible labor law violations, on-set injuries, draconian parental releases) is already brewing over CBS's latest foray into reality tv programming: Kid Nation. In a modern take on Lord of the Flies, children, aged 8-15, are left to their own devices to build a functioning society by running an abandoned ghost town in New Mexico. We must admit the trailers are intriguing so we're wondering - will you watch? Why or why not?
