I'm not particularly interested in watching the show, but I'm not particularly outraged by it either. It would only be interesting to see who would rise to the top in a situation like this, and how he/she would get there. It would also be interesting to see what kind of economic and governing system they would adopt if they were given absolutely no structure by the show whatsoever. Jobs and a shop are already built into the system, which impacts the way they function. Anyway, all in all, not a show that's going to grace my TiVo.

From a psychologist's and anthropologist's perspective, I would guess that Kid Nation would prove fruitful in data collection, but to be honest the ad just makes it look like the kids are still given enough structure that they won't turn all Lord of The Flies on us and the studio execs make sure that certain things will happen to give the braying audience what they want to see.
