If you haven't seen the season finale of Fringe stop reading right now... Anyway, what basically happened is that Peter Bishop went to the future, fixed a bunch of stuff and then had his existence eliminated after the show's two universes finally came together (at least in one room). Thanks, Observers. Not only did the cliffhanger leave us dying to know what will happen next season, but it also made us ponder how our own world would be different if all traces of Joshua Jackson (the actor) was suddenly removed from reality. Here are the awful chain reactions that might occur:
After months of rumors, we finally know exactly what we thought we knew.
Last night's Brothers & Sisters Season 5 finale may or not have been a series finale -- despite the show's sagging ratings, ABC is reportedly considering bringing the show back (possibly without Kitty, possibly not) for a shortened sixth season in the fall. But that's all rumor at this point, and considering the quality of the show over the last two seasons, I'm really hoping that final season is already behind us. The following are just a few reasons why I can't deal with a sixth season of this show.
We love Tina Fey. There's just something about her that makes us willing to sit through lukewarm movies like Baby Mama or even pick up a book. And watching 30 Rock for some reason makes us remember her time as SNL's head writer as actually being funny. So the moment we heard she and her unborn child were going to host this week we were stoked. Thankfully, even with higher expectations, this weekend's episode wasn't any more of a disappointment than usual (mostly because of the special appearances by other former SNL cast members Maya Rudolph and Darrell Hammond). Here's the best and worst of this week's sketches:
Gaga mentoring the American Idol kids... will this include meat dresses?
Is there anything on earth more exciting than an all-star season of a reality competition show? Obviously not: The Amazing Race is just finishing one, Top Model is doing one, Top Chef just did one, and now, for the first time ever, Project Runway is solving their casting problems by doing one, too. So, assuming past winners are ineligible (which means no Christian Siriano or hate-fueling Jeffrey Sebelia, unfortunately), who should come back? Here's our wish list:
It's finally Friday, and as usual the week has been full of ghastly people behaving terribly on reality shows, so let's do this thing: Five horrible nominees, one trash king crowned at the end. As always, feel free to play along in the comments.
It's that time of year when we honor all that mothers do for their children. Though in the case of the television personalities below, being a good mom consists of pimping out your kids or hitting them with an actual hammer. Yes, these are some really special women. So happy Mother's Day and be grateful that these women didn't give birth to you.
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Are you blacking out from those tequila shots yet?
Because we need a celebrity version of everything, ABC has ordered Celebrity Wife Swap, wherein celebrities from opposing walks of life will switch spouses for a week in the same chaste extended key party format as the regular people edition -- but better! Rumor has it the show is gunning for SNL alum and noted homophobe Victoria Jackson for an episode, so I think it's safe to say they're really reaching for the crazy stars here. And since I live to help the networks with these kinds of things, here are some fun swap ideas I know I for one would watch the hell out of.
