Remember these two rays of sunshine? Well, you might be getting them back. Joy.
Why on earth would I watch The Biggest Loser any more?
We're entering awards season, which means the Golden Globes are almost here! Ricky Gervais will be returning as host this year and we're looking forward to more of his jokes about celebrities and on-stage drinking. We sat in on a conference call with him where he talked about the Globes, The Office and The Ricky Gervais Show.
There are rumors that Lindsay Lohan is going to be on the next season of Dancing With the Stars, and reports denying it, but it definitely seems that the show is looking for stars with a little bit more notoriety after their ratings success with Bristol Palin. Since the program has clearly given up any pretense about being about dancing and is just going for the outrageous, we've compiled a list of washed-up B-listers who are prime for a shot at the tackiest trophy on television.
So many new shows, so much fail.
Idol is promising big changes... back to the changes we've already seen before. It's less complicated than it sounds.
Producers keep announcing changes to the format of American Idol, presumably in a desperate attempt to keep us interested in that show now that Simon is gone. The latest news is that they'll be filming the contestants living together in a house, even though they tried in some of the earlier seasons and it was really boring. Presumably, they've got a plan to Big Brother/Real World this up - perhaps with a Vegas trip -- because otherwise this isn't all that exciting. But perhaps there are some other recent reality TV trends that Idol could steal some ideas from instead. Sure these may seem extreme, but at least they would give Seacrest a challenge and would likely keep us from banging out heads against the wall during the padded intro packages.
Lots of new series are getting started up, including a few that sound... interesting.
While I watched Clash of the Choirs two years ago, I somehow missed last season's Sing-Off. Perhaps I was suffering show choir fatigue in the wake of Glee? Not really sure, since this reality show is pretty much everything that I'd normally be into. Anyway, this year it's airing in December and I'm bored and I have a high tolerance for singing and Nick Lachey, so I'm giving it a shot.
Man, if The Wonder Years doesn't come out on DVD soon, and Lionsgate keeps cranking these Boy Mets World seasons out, Fred Savage is going to start being known as "Ben Savage's brother." Revenge is sweet!
