So with such a wildly-successful program on his hands, why would Costello ever waver on a third season, especially when his old pal Elton John is on deck as an executive producer?
"At the moment, we're waiting to see whether we go forward with the same sort of degree of confidence; I don't want to do something that's inferior," Costello tells Spinner. "And it is difficult. If you look at the list of the people that we did [in the first two seasons], and then you think of some of the people that people might theorize that you would like to get, well, it's whether they would want to do it, you know? And I know that with some of the people that you'd love to speak to, there are reasons why they don't feel right about doing something like 'Spectacle,' or the timing isn't right in their life and career."
"So I think that it's got to be in the right circumstances," he adds, leaving the destiny of the show very much up in the air.
Clearly, though, the show means a great deal to Costello, so devoted viewers shouldn't assume the worst just yet.
"I'm very pleased that we've had the opportunity to share some of the people whose work I've really admired," he says. "And to have shown some people, perhaps, who aren't as well known as they should be, and to have spent a good bit of time with people who everybody knows, and really have a ball doing it."
