The Voice, Oct. 21 – Real Battles

Unlike the previous week's battles, these really are battles and not duets. Not that duets are bad, it just makes it really hard to choose one or see one of ...

These battles continue to blow me away. They are all so good that I'd rather have them just keep them around as duets. If you listen to the iTunes ...

It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

There's nothing better than great editing that shows contestants being pompous, only to end up eating those words later on. One team member starts out calling his team "survivors and ...

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 8 – The BrotherWoo Of The Traveling Pants

Just as I suspected, the Pagonging has begun. Let’s hope it stops before it gets boring. The aftermath of Kass’ terrible, horrible move last week unfolded with little to no strategizing throughout the episode. Not once did I suspect that Kass was flipping back, even when they began to allude to Spencer trying to pull a Yul move on her on the beach. Remember when Yul got Jonathan to flip? He came to him at the merge and showed him the idol. Spencer said something [...]

Survivor: Cagayan: Ep 7 – A Series Of Unfortunate Strategic Moves

Somewhere the best Survivor players in the first 27 seasons of the game were collectively cringing as this season’s pivotal merge Tribal Council unfolded. Surely they were entertained, but boy, they were probably thinking that if only they got to return this season to join this cast, they’d have an easy run to the end. Imagine some of the better strategist who never won – Rob C, Stephen, and many others – taking on this lot. Oh, and I know, I’m late, I’m sorry, I [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 6 – Quitters Never Win…Obviously

I know you’ve heard this song and dance before – but really, I mean it this time. I am mostly caught up on a lot of the backlog I have been working through at home and at work and am crossing my fingers that I will reset my schedule and routine to enable a more timely post to you folks. Especially next week when the merge comes and the game begins to take shape for the later episodes. This week we had two Survivors depart [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 5 – The Meek Shall Inherit The Tribe

So, I was out of town for a few days and began working a new job this week. It was also my first week living as a single dad, without my kid, so it was a bit weird. That’s my really, really good excuse for a late and short Survivor column this week. You guys ok with that? It’s not as if you really have a choice after all. Anyway, this week showed two things about Survivor that we should always remember – first, contestants [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 23 – Risky Choices

This is what makes The Amazing Race such a joy to watch. There are so many things possible to eliminate you. One tiny slip-up, and you’re done. This week, however, it wasn’t a slip-up so much as chance and risks. Margie and Luke and Brendan and Rachel, after the difficult time they had on the Detour last week, were at the back of the pack. They missed out on getting tickets on the non-stop flight to Sri Lanka. There was a flight with a connection, [...]

American Idol, Mar. 19 – Top Ten Hits

I always hate this theme on American Idol. To do top ten hits over the past few years … well that’s what they’ve been doing so far in the competition. We need something else, something different. We need to see what happens when these artists step outside of their comfort zone. Motown, Big Band, 70s, etc. Sure, they had movie hits, but some of them still picked more recent tunes. Until then, here’s how the idols did with this week’s theme. Dexter Roberts – Cruise [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 9 – Mixing It Up

These are the challenges I like to see – not necessarily physically demanding, but difficult to accomplish so that it has an impact on the game. Neither the Roadblock or the Detour was a slam dunk for anyone. It made the hours much more exciting. Also leading to some excitement were the flights to Kuala Lumpur. There were only three. The first flight could carry three teams and the second only two, placing the remaining three teams on the next flight. However, the second flight [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 4 – Brains Save Brawn From Themselves

Sorry for the late posting, and I am hopeful the era of my late postings will be ending now (or at least lessened). I will say I have some pretty damn good excuses this week – on Thursday, I spent the day visiting my new office as I start a new job next week. Also on Thursday, I officially became a single man again for the first time in a very long time – although I’ve unofficially had that status for a great number of [...]

The Amazing Race, Mar. 9 – Raft-Building 101

After the heartbreak of last week’s episode, it was good to see them get back to business again this week. Sure, no one wanted to say goodbye to Joey and Meghan, but their elimination just wasn’t nearly as heartbreaking as Mark and Mallory’s. Yet they still had a big looming mistake hovering over them at elimination. Joey and Meghan started in the back of the pack and never moved from that spot. This was aided somewhat by the flights. There were two flights to carry [...]

Survivor Cagayan – Ep 3 – Cops R’ Us Is The Talk Of The Town

So far so good this season with Survivor as we have had three hours of very entertaining Survivor madness. We have Team Beauty wilting before our eyes, we have Tasha repeatedly getting salt water thrown in her face – by her own doing, we have Philip Sheppard’s lawyers preparing intellectual property lawsuits and we have a budding super villain who may in fact turn out to be awesome. And I didn’t even mention the 8 pm family hour wet t-shirt contest starring Morganna. But don’t [...]
