To celebrate the illustrious return of some of the most horrifyingly despicable people on reality television, we've dedicated this week's entire edition to the cast of Teen Mom 2 because there were just so many awful people to choose from the season premiere. Don't worry, Real Housewives and Real Worlders… we'll still have you on our radar when we return to our regular format next week.
Most awesome person of the week on reality TV easily goes to Harry Connick, Jr. who nearly single-handedly renewed our interest in American Idol with his charming antics and musical knowledge. You're a wizard, Harry. The rest of reality TV was filled with despicable morons, like usual.
New year... and a bunch of horrible new reality stars to contend with. Welcome to 2014, everyone.
We knew that those dads from Teen Mom 3 would be back on the list in no time.
"Can you believe we used to be married?"
A week where the dads from Teen Mom 3 were largely tolerable (or just not shown) makes us really happy.
If I counted up the hours I regularly spent watching cooking shows, I'd probably give myself indigestion. And lately, even my favorite shows have been underwhelming. Hell's Kitchen is just a blur of profanity, Top Chef is insanely talented people who have all blended together in a competent James Beard Award-winning way and the Food Network stuff always tends to be quickly forgotten. I particularly thought I'd reached my limit of Gordon Ramsay programming (even though I continue tuning in to Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and MasterChef out of habit), and yet my daughter convinced me to watch MasterChef Junior with her and I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did this show reinvigorate my adoration of Ramsay as a TV personality but also renewed me hope that we could see more kid-based reality shows that doesn't involve them singing or dancing on America's Got Talent or focus on their parents like Dance Moms. Here are the best things I've learned this season watching MasterChef Junior.
It's a bad week to be getting married, or even just be engaged.
Our hero of the week is Tim Gunn, for being classy while telling several bitter Project Runway contestants off for daring to say the show was fixed. We actually really like him when he's angry.
Lesson of the week: If you are going to pretend to be someone else online, don't pretend to be a celebrity.
