Reality announcements, cast reunions and overdone pilot ideas are today's big stories.
With news that AMC is planning to do a Watch What Happens Live-type talk show, we're thinking that more networks should be cashing in on this low-budget, highly-entertaining type of exclusive entertainment. Taking a page from Andy Cohen, who drove his Bravo behind-the-scenes series to success, here's how other networks could run their WHW-style shows.
Get ready to spend a whole lot of time with Nancy Grace.
On last night's episode, we finally got resolution on the nail-biting cliffhanger from the week prior. Big shocker: Jake went home instead of Kasey. The former Bachelor graciously (and delusionally) stepped up and gave a speech about forgiveness and how he was really glad to have met Vienna's new boyfriend and that he felt good about the whole experience. Did we mention he was a bit delusional? Or possibly under the influence of some happy pills? But after his exit, things took a turn for the worse and we spent most of the episode trying to crawl out of our own skin. And that's not even counting the unveiling of this fall's Dancing With the Stars "celebrities." The first time Nancy Grace does a dirty rumba, we're so out of there. Here's what grossed us out the most at the Pad:
See Nikita. See Nikita run. See Nikita shoot her gun and run some more.
MTV hasn't been doing much to promote its newest half-hour reality series, and it's understandable why: Cuff'd is the kind of show that finds you, most likely when you're flipping through the channels late at night looking for something half-dumb, half-exploitative to watch. It's the genre I usually expect to see from Spike TV and I'm frankly surprised they didn't nab it first.
We always knew that Bieber kid was a punk.
After the whole 2009 Kanye West/Taylor Swift fiasco, it's hard to get excited about the VMAs anymore because what could possibly top that? Last year proved that the answer to that question is certainly not "Chelsea Handler". But this year has some promise, considering there's a Hunger Games trailer, the whole no host thing and the late-breaking news that Beyonce is the first woman in the history of humanity to get pregnant. So let's watch and cross our fingers that we didn't completely waste a night on this crap.
Ah, remember the good ol' days of the VMAs?
It's been a big week for terrible human beings, so with much debate we've decided to omit list regular Ashley (Real Housewives of New Jersey) because her actions this week spilled out too much from her same bratty antics from last time around. Though, truthfully, that stupid fedora she was wearing could arguably land her on here for entirely different reasons. But in spite of everything, we're leaving her off to make room for these winners.
