Hey Mark Burnett: How Many Jobs You Got?

Hey Mark Burnett: How Many Jobs You Got? I've asked Greg Berlanti. I've even asked Mario Lopez. And now, with the announcement that he's got a possible 16 shows coming to a TV near you, the time has come to channel In Living Color's immortal "Hey Mon!" to ask Mark Burnett: "How many jobs you got?!" The brain behind Survivor, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader and The Apprentice recently told TV Week he has "10 series in various stages of posting and prepping, as well as five or six pilots," on his work schedule at the moment. I'm going to be conservative and assume that his returning and current shows are included in the above numbers, so the official tally is a mind-boggling 15 or 16 jobs! Wow! I never thought I'd say this, Greg Berlanti and Mario Lopez, but next to Mark Burnett, you two are lazy bums.

Two Hours of Celebrity Apprentice, Just What I Never Wanted

Two Hours of <I>Celebrity Apprentice</I>, Just What I Never Wanted

I've complained all season (to anyone who would listen... which is all of about three people) that two hours of The Biggest Loser is just plain old too much. And that's a show I actually like to watch. And now NBC, which apparently just loves the idea of stretching out reality shows so you get to hear the same crap over and over and over again, with a handy recap at the half way point, they are at it again with the new season of Celebrity Apprentice. And this show... I actually don't like to watch. I watch it anyway... because it's sorta my job. But I don't enjoy it. As mildly amusing/annoying as it was to watch Piers Morgan and Omagrossa fight about their respective levels of fame or lack there of, it just gives me a headache. And now it's going to take up two valuable hours of my TiVo time on Sunday nights, when I totally have much better things to be watching, like The Amazing Race or Ruby or really anything else.

Product Placement: The Show

Ooh, how does this taste, Top Chef? CBS has managed to out-product-placement the most product placement-y reality show of our time with a new show called Jingles. Hosted by American Idol season 2 cast-off Kimberly Caldwell (yeah, I know), the Mark Burnett-produced series will see aspiring songwriters competing by writing and singing commercial jingles for a variety of products -- take that, Top Chef Glad Wrap pantry! Leave this to the professionals!
