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 ...

The Amazing Race, Oct. 13 – Racing with Ricky Bobby

Ricky Bobby, despite being a race car driver, is one of the last names I’d expect to come up on The Amazing Race. Nevertheless, the “great Ricky Bobby” is quoted by the team arriving in last place tonight. Departing from: Santiago, Chile First Clue: Teams will need to travel to Lisbon, Portugal, travel to Martim Moniz Square, then ride a tram to the top of the hill to get their next clue. Teams: Chester and Ephraim: Former NFL teammates from Houston. Time of departure: 6:27 [...]

The Voice, Oct. 7 – Finishing Up the Blinds

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 most spots open still on his team, but that’s because no one is picking him … until tonight. Auditioner: Matt Cermanski, 20, Phoenixville, PA. He auditioned for the show before and sang Teenage Dream. He likes to put his own twist on music and did, but realizes now it wasn’t the best song for an [...]

The X Factor, Oct. 2 & 3 – “Take a Seat”

The X Factor is most assuredly trying to compete with The Voice. They have eliminated the round where contestants would visit the coaches’ homes and have replaced it with the Four Chair Challenge. Each category has two contestants, and each of them will perform. Their coach gets the option to have them take a seat or send them home. The four left in the chairs at the end will be that coach’s top four. They can have all four seats filled and still keep someone. [...]

The Amazing Race, Oct. 6 – “Survivors and Thrivers”

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 thrivers,” then ends up having to deal with getting lost, misunderstanding a bus schedule, not doing a roadblock the right way, and even Marie, who should probably take the advice herself, telling him to “Zip it, Bingo.” Departing from: Iquique, Chile Teams: Tim and Marie: Exes from Morristown, NJ. Time of departure: 2:52 AM. She [...]

Top Chef: New Orleans – Ep 2 – Tyler Florence May Be Calling His Lawyer

Having just watched the Great Food Truck Race – mainly because they came to my town and my son and I bought food from the eventual winner – this episode became interesting. Food trucks – once considered one of the lowest forms of dining out – have become a bit of a phenomenon. Here in the DC area, they are everywhere. And they are delicious, providing a wide array of cuisine and treat options. Tyler Florence’s show on the Food Network pits teams competing for [...]

Survivor: Blood vs. Water – Ep 4 – “What just happened?”

The title this week was spoken by Ciera after the votes were tallied and the Family Tribe just took part in one of the wackiest and incredible blindsides/power plays in the history of this show. I have said it before, I’ll say it again, it is amazing that so many seasons into this show that they can still have new and unique things happen. It is why the show still works and thrives when so many other reality shows have faltered over time. Also incredible…somehow [...]

Dancing with the Stars, Oct. 7 – “Keep on Keepin’ On”

Somehow it all worked out right last week. Bill Nye went home while dealing with a debilitating quadricep muscle tear and a lack of dancing ability. Bill Nye and Valerie Harper could be right behind him, but it would definitely be sad to lose them. In fact, it’s such a great cast this season, it will be difficult to lose any of them. Tonight Len Goodman is missing from the judging panel and replaced by former DWTS professional dancer Julianne Hough. Partners: Jack Osbourne and [...]

The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Oct. 6 – The Reunion, Part 1

This season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey ended in peace and harmony, although throughout the reunion it still didn’t seem as if the issues between Joe and Teresa have been solved yet. With the continuous bickering and cheap digs you could still feel the tension and annoyance from the other housewives. The reunion show touches lightly on the thirty-nine counts of federal fraud that Teresa and her husband Joe face, with the housewives admitting to being shocked when they first heard about the [...]

The Voice, Oct. 1 – Why the Cee Lo Disrespect?

I brought this up after last night’s show, and I’m going to keep bringing it up. Why the Cee Lo Green disrespect? Even when he is clearly the most suited for a contestant, they push him aside to go with another coach. It seems they’re more concerned about winning than developing as an artist. Auditioner: Will Champlin, 30, Reseda, CA. Carson Daly checks in on him while he’s jamming with his dad. That’s not just any dad; it’s Bill Champlin, former singer and guitarist for [...]

Top Chef: New Orleans – Ep 1 – I Am The Swamp Queen

Season 11! And only one week after Masters ended. So…more food writing from me. Yay! In this case, we have the usual madness of a first episode of Top Chef. Too many new faces running around, super excited about being on the show and then BLAM! Overwhelmed by the reality of the challenge and the big hitters they have to cook for. My lady Padma is back and with a pretty flower in her hair to kick things off. You know the drill – Food [...]
