THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE
According to J-14 magazine, "Making the Band" has a not so bright future as far as staying on the air. Although it will makes it return on ABC on June 8, the ratings will play an important factor as to whether it will show the remaining episodes for the second season. Here's more info about that:

"O-Town Fate Is In Your Hands"
"Rumors have been flying that Making the Band, the ABC television show that evolved into the making of the boy-band O-Town, may be canceled if ratings don't pick up. All of this speculation occurred after the first two episodes of season two aired and Nielsen ratings averaged less than five million viewers. ABC execs then decided to put the reality-based series on an unexpected hiatus, hoping ratings would pick up during the summer months. ABC told J-14 that the series will return on June 8, but the fate of the show looks grim. Who knows how much longer you will be able to get a behind-the-scenes look at the loves of Ashley, Erik, Jacob, Trevor and Dan? Will seeing them on stage be enough? We certainly don't think so. So, J-14 is launching a write-in campaign to save Making the Band by asking our readers and their friends to write to ABC and tell them how much you love the show and the guys."

Your support will be much appreciated! So be sure to watch the show on Friday, June 8 and also send in your letters to keep the second season going. It is said that if ABC cancels the show, MTV will pick it up. Thanks to FAshley13@aol.com and to The O-Town Girlies and Guyies Yahoo Club!

THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE
-Here's an email from Sara about Latin Girl mag:

"The Latin Girl photos and article (from the current June/July issue) are from when O-Town were in Los Angeles, Ca. in February. I was hanging with the photographer and he said that Erik had been heavily requested from their readers and from the readers from another latin magazine (whose name I can't remember because this conversation was taking place in the bar at the concert). So there is another latin magazine that also has an article either in May or June was what the photographer said because he was shooting pics for both. Hope that helps."
Thanks! And if anyone knows which other Latin magazine O-Town is in, please email us.

-This is an email from Nikki about MTB in Canada.

"Hey! This is just some info on Making The Band in Canada. Like the previous update said, YTV won't be showing any new episodese until June 15th. There will still be an episode on June 8th, and it will be Episode 203. The episode is new in the U.S. but since YTV showed it the first week that ABC cancelled MTB, it's not new here. So we're all still on the same schedule! I'm guessing this won't be too sufficient to most Making The Band fans in Canada because we all get ABC anyway."
Thanks for the update, Nikki

MUSIC

THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE
-Here's an email from a fan regarding Jacob's back injury:

"The guys just did a private show here in NJ at a local night club for the radio station 97.5 WPST. While standing outside we overheard one of the DJ's on his cell phone say "We think he might have broken a bone in his lower back." We instantly knew it was somebody in O-town. The guys arrived in a limo. First stepped out Erik, then Trevor, followed by Ashley, and finally Dan. The driver closed the door and Jacob was nowhere to be seen. The four of them seemed a little down. We were positive now that the dj was refering to Jacob. When O-town took the stage, it was just the 4 of them. The DJ's, however, announced Jacob's injury at the beginning of the show. I'm guessing this means he'll be sitting out the Q102 show on Sunday. Oh yeah, Ashley announced MTB's return on June 8th. They also did a signing."

Thanks Eric!
It seems he will miss a few shows. Hope not too many! Get well soon, Jacob!

-Here's an email from a Canadian fan regarding Making the Band airing on YTV:

"Hi O-town Fan Page. I emailed YTV (Canada) to make sure the new episodes would be returning to YTV on June 1 like they said before, and they emailed me back saying this":

"Our schedule has changed a bit. Due to ABC pre-empting Making the Band, we are left with no new episodes to air until June 15th. (We do not produce this series and therefore must wait for the new episodes). So for the next 6 weeks starting Friday May 4th, we will be in repeats. Please note that all schedules are subject to change without notice. Thanks for understanding."

We don't know exactly what this means for Canadian fans so let us know if you have more info. I assume they will wait for the U.S. episodes to run before they can air the newer episodes. Thanks Sarah E. for this info!

In Popstar:
For all those Z100 listeners out there, we're sure you've heard Carson Daly's new countdown show. We've noticed that Carson's not too big on O-Town, so now we bring you Carson's Daly Diss for the past week. Let's look at the week so far:

Monday - Talked about Eve 6 dissing manufactured groups. But Carson said don't put N Sync and Backstreet in the same league as O-Town. O-Town still has to pay their dues.

Tuesday - Talked about Eden's Crush opening for O-Town on May 19th in Holland. But now Eden's Crush has been offered SNL. It's a tough choice. SNL, O-Town, SNL, O-Town. Of course they went with SNL.

Wednesday - Talked about the fact that O-Town will be on Regis on May 18th. He said let's see if the boys can pull it off live. Let's hope they get some soundchecks in before they go on.

Thursday - He talked about how he can never say that O-Town isn't humble. He read an interview with O-Town where they admit that a year ago their performance was bad. They blame it on the sound system. Carson said at least the boys can admit it. But the boys said they are really working on improving. And Carson says, now is a better time than any.
(Thanks Jen!)

YM - a description of what's inside
(Thanks so much Jenny!)

O-Town has a two page feature in the July 2001 issue of YM. The feature included pictures of all of their bedrooms in their Orlando,Florida mansion, which showed the theme or how they decorated their rooms in the house. It was cool! Ashley's room had the superman "S" on the walls. Erik's had an American flag to represent Ralph Lauren,(where he used to work in High school or something). Jacob's was an underwater ocean theme with an octopus on the wall and blue lights making the room look cool. Dan's had like Japanese writing on the walls. And Trevor had like a green with designs that were supposed to look like a golf theme.

MAKING THE BAND
- Making The Band will be coming back June 8, 2001. We've had many e-mails asking about it!

Performance of "All or Nothing" and "Love Should Be a Crime"

"The O-Town Sound" - TV GUIDE
"We have to prove we're for real" says Jacob in the second season opener, which spotlights O-Town's performances at the Miss America pagent and a Teen People shindig at the Apollo in Harlem. After a half hour recap of last season,the series picks up with Jacob, Ashley, Erik, Trevor and Dan settling into pop-star life, which consists of juggling interviews and photo shoots, with the need to rehearse - a need that becomes obvious after a technical glitch leads to a disappointing performance of "Liquid Dreams" at the Miss America pagent. Meanwhile, off the stage, Erik experiences mixed emotions about his biological father, who is seeking to reenter Erik's life after a 19 year absence."

Thanks Veronica for providing us with this article from TV Guide.

From ABC.com and thanks to Nicole for telling us about it...

"Making the Band," the reality series which follows the lives, loves and musical journey of pop band O-Town, kicks off its second season with a special, one-hour premiere, FRIDAY, APRIL 13 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. Note: "Making the Band" will debut in its regular time period on Friday, April 20 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET). The first half-hour will be a special recap episode of "Making the Band's" first season. Highlights include the coming together of O-Town, from the gripping cross-country talent search to the band's training, their recording process, the triumph of their first public performance and their transformation from ordinary young men to rising pop stars. The second half-hour will be the premiere episode of the second season. When O-Town is invited to perform live in front of millions of television viewers at "Miss America," the opportunity of a lifetime becomes a rude awakening for the band's nascent musical career. Meanwhile, a band member's life is turned upside down when his estranged father tries to come back into his life after twenty years.

BATTLE OF THE BOY BANDS
Don't mess with O-Town! If you dis 'em, they will strike back. O-Town's Jacob Underwood recently singled out *NSYNC's Lance Bass, who apparently talked trashed about the boy band. ("We weren't put together by anybody. We didn't go through a boot camp audition. There was no training like that whatsoever. That's why I think it's really just a bunch of stupidity. I don't think it will ever last," Lance told Wall of Sound.) "I think it's really bold of [Lance] to... start shooting off about us because he knows where we came from and we're working with the same people that put *NSYNC together," Jacob told NME.com. "I'm kinda worried that we might let out some secrets 'cause we've found out some stuff about how real or not real they are. I'd be pretty worried if I was him if he wants to keep shooting off his mouth." (Secrets? What secrets?!) O-Town's Erik-Michael Estrada agrees. "I think he was a lot safer when he was commenting on the people we were working with, but he made a big mistake when he commented on us as a band," Erik added. "We're going to do things that are going to surprise a lot of people. I feel really bad when people have to eat their words." Oooh, sinister!

Hey, you can listen to "Liquid Dreams" on the Y-100 radio station in Miami or on their official site (Click on 'Click Here to Listen'). Tune in around 7:00PM Eastern Time (4PM Pacific) cuz I heard it around 7:30 and, in my opinion, it sounded a LOT better than on Miss America. Try requesting the song to your local radio station.

From the YM November Issue (thanks to Giselle):
Well a reader of YM wrote to the magazine about their last article. It's about the shirt Jacob wore for the pictures. The reader was named "Brian Heck." Heres what the article said:
------------------------------------
oh no, O-Town!
"I was excited to pick up the September issue and read "ON the Town with O-Town." However, something caught my eye before i could even start reading- Jacob Underwood's Shirt. The shirt shows and American Flag with a man and a woman holding hands with the words "Straight Pride" underneath it. I was confused by this at first. But the longer i looked at it, and the more i talked to my friends about it, the more upset i got. I could go into the many reasons why the shirt is offensive (from the American flag aspect to the mocking of minority), but i trust that you're able to see that for yourself. I hope that in the future YM will use better judgement about which opinions to display."
------------------------------------
Jacob's reply:
"I apologize if my shirt offended anyone. It was only meant to provoke though."

There was a major mishap on the way to Buffalo. The boys were unable to make the trip because either the propellar or engine caught on fire and they had to make an emergency landing in Pennsylvania somewhere. The radio station was angry because there were a lot of fans there in the pouring rain so O-Town could only do a phone interview. Ashley, Trevor, Erik and Dan spoke but it was brief.(thanks to Danielle for the update)

Uh, Oh! Copycat alert. The WB is gonna be starting a new show called "Popstar" with five girls. Its like making the band but with girls. They start with 100, down to 75 or something and eventually they reach five to make a "successful" band. They used the same words from the beginning of making the band, "sacrifice", "passion", "no privacy."(thanks to Amina for that update)
