Glee won somethin' fancy! And other things.
Wooooo, Castle lives!
I'm not going to lie, I fear change... especially when it involves my favorite reality shows. When Nigel Lythgoe (a.k.a. @dizzyfeet) announced via Twitter last week that there were alterations afoot at So You Think You Can Dance, beginning with a smaller final group and only one person getting eliminated per week, I immediately started to panic. What would the non-eliminated partner do, dance solo? Well, now it's been revealed that they're bringing back all-stars who will be partnering with the Top 10. However, I'm still quite wary about what the show will look like when it returns in May. Here's why:
Unless you're a prostitution whore, there's something for everyone in this week's TV-on-DVD releases. Actually, if you're a prostitution whore who once got arrested by Steven Seagal, you might be in luck.
Before gorging yourself on Dancing with the Stars tonight, enjoy your daily dose of today's TV news.
While we never got to know her as well as the others, American Idol contestant Paige Miles was moderately successful with rockin' numbers like "All Right Now," which became more difficult when she developed laryngitis and couldn't really belt them out like she used to. (She's not the first one to come down with it, either.) So while "Honky Tonk Woman" was at least an attempt at being fun and raucous, "Against All Odds" was weak and spotty, and she was voted off just shy of making the Top 10. We sat in on a conference call where she talked about her illness, the song choice process and how to deal with contradictory judges.
In celebration of the end to a crazy workweek, I proudly present to you some easygoing TV news. Nobody's getting fired and nothing is getting cancelled, so there's no need to panic or go on a Twitter frenzy. Besides, I'm sure you're all exhausted after freaking out over these Beyonce pregnancy rumors.
With Fringe planning a musical-themed scene in an upcoming episode (we're mostly excited because Michael Cerveris is an awesome Broadway performer), the recent addition of musical numbers to shows like How I Met Your Mother, the cover tunes performed by Jeffster! on Chuck and, naturally, all things Glee, we started thinking about how other scripted series could get their characters singing. While there are some shows that could never pull characters breaking into song (24, for instance), here's who we think could carry a tune.
Today's TV news is a bit of a roller coaster ride. Did you bring your chessboard?
Why does Ann hang around at the Pawnee City Hall all the time? Doesn't her nursing job require her to work sometimes? And why doesn't it actually look like anything has changed in 2014 on Desperate Housewives? These are just a few of the questions we have about current TV programs. Read here to see the other pressing issues we'd like to see resolved, and then let us know what your inquiring mind wants to know about.
