Who Wants “Soul Train” To Come Back To TV?

Who Wants "Soul Train" To Come Back To TV?

Magic Johnson has told The Associated Press that he has plans to bring back Soul Train to television as part of his new Aspire 24 hour cable channel which he’s deveolping with Sean P. Diddy Combs.

Along with Soul Train Holdings LLC, which was created by Johnson when he bought the Soul Train library and brand last year, Johnson said he plans to bring back the show along with other ideas including a Soul Train Broadway show and in coming in 2013, a Soul Train cruise.

I don’t know about you, but I think Johnson should be concentrating on new and innovative programming and ideas for his new network. The past is past and bringing back Soul Train, that is if it happens, won’t be the same.

Besides who would they get to host the show? OH God! I hope not Johnson!! I still have nightmares about that talk show he did years ago.
