The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

A week where the dads from Teen Mom 3 were largely tolerable (or just not shown) makes us really happy.

Welcome to the Family: Thanks, But We’ll Stick With Our Own

<i>Welcome to the Family</i>: Thanks, But We’ll Stick With Our Own

You know, I may not have been 100 percent on board with NBC's last attempt at creating its own Modern Family-style comedy hit, Ryan Murphy's The New Normal, but I did appreciate that show's full-throated endorsement of blended families and the way it filtered the relationships between parents and their children (both of the grown-up and still-youthful variety) through a sweetly sarcastic lens. I found myself particularly missing Normal while watching its replacement: Welcome to the Family, a more straightforward Modern Family knock-off that's twice as annoying even the worst episode of The New Normal… and possibly even Glee. (Though that's a harder case to make, what with last season's school-shooting episode, among other things.)

We Are Men: Welcome to the Bromance

<I>We Are Men</I>: Welcome to the Bromance

We were trying our best to forget this show was coming, but while we were watching the delayed Amazing Race, we were inundated with commercials for it, hyping it as "MenDay" and showing clips of it and Barney on How I Met Your Mother. So I guess they are ignoring that the other two sitcoms that follow it have female-centric titles and that there's a woman in a leading role on Hostages? Why didn't they just pair this show with Two and a Half Men so we could have obnoxious guys saying horrible things for a solid hour? Or call it "Men Hour" or something? Instead, the promos just added to the list of things that annoy us about this new sitcom, even though it isn't directly the show's fault.

Before we get to the negativity of this week, we'd like to take one minute to give a shout out to Extreme Weight Loss's Cassandra for exuding so much positivity and to Julie Chen for giving Aaryn a little taste of what she's in for once she leaves the Big Brother jury house. Now back to your regularly scheduled obnoxiousness.

Brian from American Baking Competition and Krissi from Masterchef were too cocky and uppity when they got criticized, which is one of our pet peeves, but they both still survived elimination and managed to escape making our list.

Special shout-out to our reality hero of the week: Bebe Wood from The New Normal, who did a guest video appearance on the RuPaul's Drag Race finale and reprised her Little Edie impression. She's just freaking adorable. The rest of these people... decidedly not adorable.

Newlyweds: The First Year: Ranking the New Bravo Couples

<i>Newlyweds: The First Year</i>: Ranking the New Bravo Couples

Despite having pretty high expectations going into Newlyweds: The First Year, I wasn't disappointed by last night's series premiere. Bravo is essentially trying to do to marriage what MTV did with teen pregnancy via Teen Mom: show viewers what "actually" goes down once the initial afterglow fades away and reality sinks in -- a concept that isn't entirely original, but still generally unexplored in the low-budget TV landscape.

Five Questions for <I>Admission</i> Director Paul Weitz

Tina Fey's post-30 Rock career begins in earnest with Admission, a romantic comedy set in the high-stakes world of college admissions. Don't think that qualifies as a "high-stakes" world? Then you clearly haven't had to apply to college recently. Fey plays career-minded Princeton admissions officer Portia Nathan, who enjoys a meet cute with the personable principal of a progressive New England high school (Paul Rudd). Admission's director Paul Weitz, whose previous films include American Pie, About a Boy and last year's Being Flynn, spoke with us about collaborating with Fey and his own experience with higher education.
