A photo of The X Factor crew in happier times...
Clearly, hiring music industry professionals was of no help to The X Factor, as demonstrated by the recent axing of judge/mentors Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger (as well as host Steve Jones). Who should replace them? We suggest that Simon Cowell look to already successful reality TV judges -- regardless of whether or not they have experience critiquing singers. While some of these personalities might seem like an odd fit, each one of them would be more fun to watch than the former Laker Girl and Pussycat Doll:
Last night was the first of three installments of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, and while we've only just scratched the surface of the craziness with these women, there were already some very memorable moments:
Star Trek: The Next Generation boldly goes onto Blu-ray.
Over the course of a few seasons, Glee has gone from a fun teen show with music to a jukebox show with plots and characters that make little to no sense. And while the long-running Degrassi franchise has hit some tough patches of its own over the years, they've managed to stick through it all (even adding occasional music), successfully entertaining and educating several generations teens since the mid-'80s. If Glee wants to last anywhere near that long (and God help us if it does), there's plenty that it could learn from our favorite neighbors to the north:
On to the Grammys...
Although the residents of Downton Abbey have witnessed the ravages of war courtesy of the steady stream of wounded soldiers that have passed through the sizeable manor, their own personal casualties have been limited... that is, until last night. In the opening sequence, Matthew and William go over the top for one more big charge and run straight into an explosion that leaves them bloodied and battered in a muddy pit. While both men are retrieved from the battlefield still alive, they arrive back at Downton considerably worse for the wear. By the end of the hour, one will die, while the other may find himself wishing he had. But they aren't the only people left wounded by the war. Here's our picks for last night's five biggest wartime casualties:
Jeez, The X Factor did some serious damage.
The return of Bad Girls Club and The Challenge made our lives easy this week.
When Parks and Recreation first debuted, I remember the attitude surrounding it was that the series what basically The Office with Amy Poehler... especially considering it was originally conceived as a spin-off. The similarities were there, and The Office was still good enough at that point that a new show with a cast of mostly-unfamiliar faces seemed pretty much vestigial.
