What is Fox's "Star": An unapologetic riff on the "Empire" formula of hip-hop melodrama Discount Newport 100S Cigarettes, the more low-rent "Star" follows the (presumed) rise of three young singers in the Atlanta music scene -- a contemporary TLC but think damaged Online Newport Cigarette Store, trampy and bitchy instead of CrazySexyCool. Jude Demorest plays Star, a mouthy 17-year-old who breaks her troubled younger half-sister Simone (Brittany O'Grady) out of foster care and heads south with her Instagram pal Alexandra (Ryan Destiny), the pouty scion of rock royalty who wants to make it on her own.

They find a home with Carlotta (Queen Latifah), Star and Simone's late mother Mary's best friend and former musical partner. and a manager in the skeevy Jahil (Benjamin Bratt), who also used to manage (apparently badly) Carlotta and Mary. The show's attempt at urban realism clashes, often in unintentionally hilarious ways, with the soapy goings-on and slick but joyless musical interludes Buy Newport Cigarettes Wholesale. Subplots about addiction, suicide, sexual abuse, trans issues and even human trafficking -- this is only the first three episodes! -- turn "Star" into an black hole.

Sample, please: "If I want to smoke weed, I'll smoke weed! And if I want to sing a damn song, I'll sing a damn song! And if I want to kill myself, I will!"

Should you watch it: Queen Latifah delivers as a God-fearing Mama Bear trying to protect her charges from the music industry venality that doomed her own dreams, but the three young actresses are not working anywhere near her level. They can sing, but not well enough to make you forget the sub-Lifetime made-for-TV-movie dialogue Cheap Cartons Of Cigarettes, whiplash plotting and utterly laughable dramatic moments, including a violent encounter in the first episode that played like an "SNL" spoof of "Law Order: SVU Cigarettes Online Free Shipping."

Will it be a hit? While "Empire" hit that sweet spot of camp, trash and flash (at least for a while), "Star" is mostly trash -- which, of course, is not necessarily a deterrent to high ratings, but let's hope in this case it is. Queen Latifah at least deserves better.
