So now that Adrianna's career has gone kaput and she doesn't have a massive McMansion to hang out in, and now that Naomi has finally put her teacher/stalker/rapist in jail, the girls decide to go to the spa to work it out, and they bring along Annie and her annoying Single White Female cousin just for fun. Basically, it seems like the show just wanted an excuse to show them all in skimpy attire.
It's Atlanta Housewives finale time, but don't despair -- this is going to be followed by about 14 reunions and a lost-footage episode, so no need to say goodbye to the ladies just yet. But still, we have to get through tonight's episode, which is going to have a pretty hard time topping Beverly Hills' finale drama. If Sheree ends up sobbing alone in a limo at the end, I'm just gonna die of happiness.
Last week was Fringe's first Friday night outing, and the ratings were... pretty OK, actually! OK enough to keep the show from being canceled if they stay there, so please, do try and bug your friends with Nielsen boxes to watch tonight's episode, preferably within the first 24 hours, particularly if they are between the ages of 18 and 49. If they're older or younger than that then just stop being friends with them. According to advertisers, they're not even people!
I've gushed about Archer before, but it really is the funniest animated show on TV -- possibly the funniest show on TV, period, assuming you like sex, violence, cartoons and dysfunctional relationships. Just imagine if M was James Bond's mother, James Bond was an A-hole, and Miss Moneypenny was a demented pervert, and you've pretty much got this show, which somehow manages to be a workplace comedy, an action movie and a sex farce all in one package. What more could you ask for?
The more I think about this show, the more brilliant I think it is. There are competitive reality series for fashion designing (Project Runway, The Fashion Show), hairstyling (Shear Genius) and even studio art (Work of Art), so why not a series that combines elements of all three? Professional make-up artists creating movie monsters to win cash and prizes? It's genius. In fact, now I wonder why there isn't a series for regular make-up artists, although a good smoky eye is no match for a subterranean mutant.
If you like the sound of nails on a chalkboard, have we found the show for you! Joan Rivers is moving in with her daughter Melissa and the hi-jinks begin. Of course it isn't just the two of them -- Melissa's boyfriend Jason will be there -- as will the poor nanny and assistant and some of Melissa's "friends." Wonder how much those "friends" got paid for this. Whatever it is, it's not enough.
You'd better work! The fabulous reality show is back for a third season, and it looks just as over-the-top as ever. Seriously, if you haven't found this show, this is the time to start -- it's far more challenging than Top Model, and all of the judges are snappier dressers than Andre Leon Talley.
Aww, a new Kardashian show. Full of fighting, crying, screaming, high-pitched voices, Scott Disick, tacky outfits, more crying, a lot of cell phone conversations, even more dead air, drunk Scott Disick, sober Scott Disick, romantic Scott Disick, Scott Disick's tacky outfits, drunk Scott Disick's aversion to outfits and appearances by Kourtney's serious "thinking face," just like with the old shows. But this time it's in New York! Clever twist, show. Totally different. Totally necessary.
I'm only an occasional watcher of Medium, so I won't go so far as to call myself a fan, but I will say that I enjoy the show when I watch it, although I do wish Allison would once in a while remember that her precognitive dreams are totally unreliable, and often deliberately misleading. I'm particularly a big fan of Jake Weber as Allison's husband Joe, so I'm actually a little disturbed by the capsule summary of tonight's series finale.
Woo! Parks & Recreation party, everybody! After months off the air, P&R finally returns with new episodes tonight, as part of NBC's new, bold, brazen, world-altering-to-hear-TV-critics-tell-it super-sized Thursday night line-up. There are like 27 shows crammed into this three hour comedy block, so come well-rested, if you can.
