"On the Lot" to premiere May 16

We've been talking about the new Steven Spielberg reality show "On the Lot." And now it looks like we won't have long to wait to see what Mr. E.T. comes up with. The show will premiere on Fox May 16, just after the next-to-last "American Idol" of the year.

"Idol" will give "Lot" a huge lead-in -- and we all know "Idol's" real drama is in the fifth, fourth and third-from-last episodes, not the finale -- but I'm not sure if the "Idol" audience will be all that interested in a bunch of film geeks getting worked up over lighting. Maybe Mark Burnett can pull it off, but I'll be skeptical until I see the show.
