<i>RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race</i>: Why This Season is Having a She-Mergency

It's baffling to me that RuPaul's Drag Race isn't amazing right now -- frankly, it's not even very good. I figured I'd be covering it every week, gushing about how fun it's been and wondering aloud why more people aren't tuning into what I thought was going to be one of the best installments of reality TV in a long while. Unrealistically high expectations? Maybe. But there were episodes of Drag Race last season that made me laugh until I cried, and moments that had me genuinely tearing up from how moving the contestants' personal stories were. Unfortunately, there are a couple reasons why I think Ru is f*cking up this season:

<I>RuPaul’s Drag Race</i>: Four Reasons Why the Reunion was Disappointing

First of all, we're thrilled that our dark horse Sharon Needles took the crown last night on RuPaul's Drag Race's reunion special. Though her victory means that darling Chad Michaels didn't win, it also means that Phi Phi O'Hara was a loser -- and we'll take that, for sure. Drag Race and Untucked have done an excellent job this season of creating the three finalists as the past, present and future of drag. We were also happy to see Latrice Royale take her much-deserved Miss Congeniality award, as we converted of the Church of Jesus Is a Biscuit after her amazing pregnancy Lip Sync for Your Life to "Natural Woman." With the exception of last night's finale, this was one of the best seasons of reality TV we've seen all year... but the travesties of last night cannot be ignored. Here are our biggest complaints:

Countdown to <I>RuPaul’s Drag Race</I>: My Money’s on Mizz Cori Meet RuPaul's Drag Race hopeful Mizz Cori. When she's not impersonating police officers covered in Boy George makeup, she enjoys TLC songs, re-purposing Star Trek logos as tasteful nipple pasties, resembling Chris March and working that geisha hand fan! And I enjoy her. Excuse her beauty and cast your vote now!

This week's list is filled with people who wasted our valuable TV watching time. Don't they care that they are taking up hours that could be spent rewatching episodes of Game of Thrones?

Special shout-out to Josh from Off Pitch who wins ugly cry of the week hands down. Especially considering how over dramatic he was being about possibly not getting into the Grand River Singers. He was worse than a failed American Idol contestant.

The contestants have finally been announced for RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race, and there's about a billion reasons why this competition excites us way more than any of those Idol-lookalikes. Most of those reasons have to do with the excess of glitter.

TWoP 10: Off-the-Beaten-Path Reality Shows Worth Watching

We had thought that we were going to spend our summer delighting in seeing Cat Deeley on a fresh program and watching Kelly Clarkson be her adorable self, but their respective new reality shows turned out to be duds. So instead we've turned our attention to some other series that may not generate quite as much buzz, but still fill our mindless summer reality needs (kinda like these shows from the dog days of winter). They all have a charm that Snooki and JWOWW's stale act severely lacks, and are a nice companion to keep us and our DVRs busy now that So You Think You Can Dance is only on one night a week.
