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 ...

Top Chef: New Orleans – Ep 3 – Quit Copying Me!

This week has the unruly bunch of 17 chefs whittled down to 15 thanks to the regular elimination and a special Elimination Quickfire Challenge. We also got our annual visit from show sponsor Food & Wine Magazine editor Dana Cowin – when will they just make her a regular judge already! In addition to Dana – sadly, there is no Zuul – we have a visit to a super famous New Orleans restaurant…Commander’s Palace. How famous is it? Emeril worked there. That should be enough. [...]

Survivor: Blood vs. Water – Ep 5 – So Much For My Happy Ending

Things we learned on this week’s Survivor episode: • Some massages that look amazing have no happy endings. (sorry about that – but how can that joke be resisted?) • Survivor may cause leprosy. • The Blood vs. Water twist has opened up an insane amount of nuance to the show. • Sometimes the editors need to tone it down to make things less obvious. So, we finally have the Family tribe winning a challenge. Interestingly, their first win comes immediately after Culpy’s departure. In [...]

Dancing with the Stars, Oct. 14 – It Was a Very Good Year

This week the stars will all be dancing to songs from their most memorable year of their lives. Before they even get started, Tom Bergeron announces that based on only viewer votes, it would be a female being eliminated tonight, yet the judges’ scares that will follow tonight could change that. Partners: Christina Milian and Mark Ballas. She felt like Julianne was taking a personal jab at Mark with her scores last week, and it had nothing to do with her. She is choosing to [...]

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 [...]
