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 ...

It's Not Personal, It's Just Business – The Apprentice 2, Episode 1

by aurora Welcome back to New York City! The Donald kicks things off by telling us that NYC is the benchmark for success. He brags a bit about the hundred or so companies he owns, along with various beauty pageants, golf courses, and of course, a TV show. Last year he hired Bill Rancic, who we see in action on the building project in Chicago. This year, Trump is looking for someone who’s smart, someone who’s a leader – he’s looking for…The Apprentice. 18 candidates [...]

Double Trouble – The X-Factor, September 4th

by Luke Simon Cowell’s new reality show “The X-Factor” stormed onto UK screens this week and with its impressive graphics and catchy theme tune quickly presented itself as an update to the “Idol” format rather than just a spin-off. There were the usual tears and tantrums as the first round of auditions were shown, and not just among the contestants. Judges Simon, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh found that with the age limit on entrants removed and vocal groups allowed auditioning glamorous grannies and barbershop [...]

Starting Over, round two

Season 2 begins September 13th. Some of us will miss Rana Walker. Devotees will remember that Rana originally applied to BE a houseguest when she was tapped to be a Life Coach instead. She basically got steamrolled by saleswoman-turned-self-promoter Rhonda Britten. Rana is sweet and gentle, not over-the-top like you need to be on reality TV. So Rhonda will be joined by “Inspirational speaker and best-selling author” Iyanla Vanzant and “renowned clinical psychologist” Dr. Stan J. Katz. He’s a pop psychologist who has done a [...]

To the EXTREME – Amazing Race, Episode 10

[i]by atarus[/i] We open up at the Victorian Memorial in Calcutta, the last pit stop. Brandon and Nicole are hiking around the memorial, asking people for some moolah since they are without. They are both uncomfortable asking for money. I could make a joke about this, but my brain is fried right now, so I won’t. Colin and Christie start off again, and the trip is headed to New Zealand! They have to fly to Auckland, and then take a drive to the Rodarua Museum. [...]

They've Got a Plan! – Big Brother 5, September 7th

by Lisa As tonight’s episode begins we recap last Saturday’s eviction of Marvin. Nakomis, the new HOH, has Cowboy worrying that he may indeed be put on the block a second time, even though she promised him it would never happen again. Nakomis yells at Adria for breaking a promise, but she can do it with no problems. For once, Karen regrets throwing a competition and wishes she had won HOH. Well, Karen, you have no idea how much that mistake may have cost you. [...]

Last Comic Standing 3 — Shall They Stay or Shall They Go?, Episode 3

Season 2 won the $50,000 again. I haven’t seen a contest this lop-sided since Mike Tyson fought PeeWee Herman. (Maybe that was a dream after some bad spaghetti!) Anyway, you get the drift. Season 2 is just b**ch-slapping Season 1 week after week. Even Ralphie joked about it by saying when the next round of competitions started, ‘there’s another $50,000 we won’t be getting.’ He’s a smart man. Jay decided to make the comics sweat again. I swear he thinks he’s Ryan Seacrest and this [...]

And your Dog-gy dresses you funny — Episode 4

Okay! I am not a huge fan of the way Beth dresses. I really thought that she picked out her own clothes. Imagine my shock and surprise at the beginning of Episode 4 when we find out that Ms. Beth allows Duane to pick out her clothes for her. (Now, I understand why she wears what she wears.) Duane (DOG) is apparently picky about his clothes. I’m so glad that biker-metal-goth is hot again. I can’t wait to pull out my leather bustier with the [...]

Apprehension Olympics — Episode 3

Team #1 is the vets, Dog & Beth vs. Team #2, the little ‘DOGS’, Leland and Justin. The object of the competition is to catch the bail jumper first. Simple, right? Beth & Dog have no real leads yet; Leland & Justin have an address. They think that means they’re gonna win. We shall see, right? Leland has been a bounty hunter for 7 years. Justin, who looks at Dog like a surrogate daddy, is relatively new to the biz. They get going. Cut to [...]

Daddy's Not-So Little Boy — Episode 2

I’ve got lots of Dog ground to make up here, people. I have been remiss with this show. It’s been a hectic few weeks, so bear with me. Ha, dog, bear…I kill me. This episode, which aired last week, (so shoot me with a can of mace people), was all about Dog and Leland’s relationship. Beth starts out by saying that the two of them are quite an effective capture crew. Dog is on his way to Kona, where Leland manages a branch of the [...]

All Crazy People Up In There! – Big Brother, Saturday, Sept. 4

[i]by atarus[/i] We start off seeing Adria’s eviction in black and white. Diane comments that she walked away from the fight between Adria and Marvin before she opened her big mouth, although it was awesome listening to Marvin whip Adria. Karen wanted to crawl under a rock, while Marvin says he wouldn’t have backed down. Nakomis is glad that Marvin decided to speak out, because it makes him stick out like a sore thumb. Then we see a black and white shot of the HOH [...]
