Someone on The Office got promoted! Sound the vuvuzelas!
What are your expectations going into a show on MTV about a kid with a large penis? Well, if you sat through an entire season of My Life as Liz, the answer is two-fold: Extremely low, yet relieved that at least we know that The Hard Times of RJ Berger is scripted.
Great news: Glee can now have an epically boring episode if it wants.
Based on the commercials for the show, as well as its placement after The Hard Times of RJ Berger, I was expecting Warren the Ape to be a raunchier, more offensive version of its predecessor, Greg the Bunny. And it definitely is; in fact, at times it veers into the puppet-porn territory of Peter Jackson's Meet the Feebles. But the rest of the time it's just a really funny show about a washed-up actor, who happens to be one of the most expressive puppets to hit the TV screen since The Muppet Show.
While you can't always give their shows an "A" for quality, you have to give Syfy an "A" for creativity. I'd rather watch a show where Dr. Watson has been injected with vampire blood or Edgar Allan Poe's notebook starts killing people than another show about a dysfunctional family of cops or doctors.
You may think that you have no idea who Double Exposure's Markus Klinko and Indrani are, but if you take a peek at their portfolio, you'll probably recognize some of their work. And at first, it seems sort of random to give a whole series to two people who we've never seen on television before, but once you watch this duo interact, you quickly realize why Bravo did... and why it's on during the notoriously less popular Summer slate.
Piers Morgan finally begins his assault on CNN. And world domination, probably.
It was a lackluster year for musicals and a great year for plays, but, alas, the gay prom must go on. Last night's televised Tonys event (yes, they still televise the Tonys) was star-studded, upset-filled and full of enormous and pretentious egos. Host Sean Hayes was funny for the most part, and overall it was a fabulous way to spend a Sunday evening. But there were lowlights, of course. Read on as I list the best and worst parts of the show.
Today's TV news may not have class, but it definitely has a 7th Heaven cast member!
Well, that was delightful. Bethenny Getting Married? (while still being very, very stupidly named) started out last night like the Top Chef Masters of The Real Housewives franchise. There was no manufactured drama, nobody on a Pinot Grigio IV drip, nobody accusing anybody of being a Kabuki vampire. It was a nice contrast! Plus, Raven was there for a second!
