If you're part of the small population of people that thought Survivor needed more romance and that The Bachelor needed more snake pits, then Love in the Wild is the show for you. Though Season 2 of the reality dating/adventure show has attempted to bump up the dramatics from the previous season, kicking out Darren McMullen in favor of Jenny McCarthy, the show hasn't lost its pretty-but-totally-desperate contestants. We can't wait to see the ridiculous and semi-dangerous scenarios they will be forced into this upcoming season, all in the name of TV love. Take a look at some of the words of wisdom from the contestants on Week 1 of the new season.
Fox's 2010-11 upfront presentation was a bit shorter than NBC's earlier today, but still just as tediously dull. After parading out the Fox talent and then letting Hugh Laurie act all appreciative, two bigwigs talked a lot about how people still watch TV and not just on the computer (yes, because couches are more comfortable than computer chairs). We were shown charts and graphs and heard talk of something called a "purchase funnel." Seriously dizzying. The event didn't really get interesting until Jane Lynch came out as Sue Sylvester and started making fun of Fox president of entertainment Kevin Reilly by poking fun at his weatherman looks and hair: "Last time I saw something that sweet and sticky it came with a free coffee and had jelly inside." After all that, it turned out that the network didn't have much new to show us... at least not for the fall (check the full calendar here). Still, some of what we did get to see definitely had promise.
While I'm slightly disappointed that the judges didn't deem Normund worthy of another performance, or didn't go back and pluck Jamar out of obscurity from the Hollywood rounds and give him another shot, I'm mostly happy with the picks for tonight's Wild Card competition. Though I really did think there would be more forgotten Hollywood people who didn't get to the semifinals... which I thought was part of the point, and I am still baffled about this whole process and why the judges didn't just randomly pick people they like and are forcing us to sit through yet another episode this week, but we're going to make the best of it. Here's who I think has the best shot.
When Glee star Cory Monteith passed away on July 13 at the too-young age of 31 due to a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol, many wondered how the show would deal with his shocking death. While the original concept from creator Ryan Murphy was to directly address the actor's drug issue, the episode called "The Quarterback" -- which airs this Thursday -- will now simply pay tribute to the beloved character of Finn Hudson. While we don't know yet how his character will have died, or if the show will ever tell us, Glee will say goodbye to both Finn and Cory the best way they know how: by singing about it. The episode will feature a series of musical goodbyes, including a number from Monteith's on and off-screen love Lea Michele.
