Well, this show's a nightmare. And not even a fun way. Lifetime is trying to extend Abby Lee Miller's 15 minutes of fame, first by putting her on Drop Dead Diva and now by giving her another show where she can torture small children. The problem here is not really that it's like So You Think You Can Dance for babies, but that it's actually mostly appalling.
Steven Tyler showing up in drag on American Idol didn't even come close to making our list, so you know people had to be really crappy this week.
Lindsay Lohan was on a reality show this week (Million Dollar Decorators) and somehow she didn't make our list. What is the world coming to in 2013?
Why is this man smiling? Because he just quit The X Factor!
Last week I said that the episodes of this show that revolved around marketing the cupcake business were my favorite -- and based on last night's "And the Cupcake War," I stand by my word. There were moments in the episode that were actually kind of charming and a few gags made me laugh out loud (much to the horror of my boyfriend who reluctantly watched along with me, and at one point begged, "Please make this stop," which I'm mentioning because there is a good chance I have show-induced Stockholm Syndrome), and I thought there was some excellent use of Sophie last night, especially when she called the girls Cagney and Lacey and later when she threw confetti in Caroline's mouth. But there were also the quips below, so it's kind of a toss-up as to whether or not I'd consider this episode a "minor success" or even "kind of good, maybe."
And on the seventh day, Snooki gave birth.
John Barrowman heads to The CW, Hilary Duff is coming to your television, and Kate Hudson joins Glee, most likely to make Rachel cry. We're all very excited.
Emmy episode submissions are in. Let the second-guessing begin!
Shangela was inspiring as a role model to a young diva on Toddlers & Tiaras, but leave it to the Dance Moms stars to act like reprehensible people around small children.
I was a bit worried that Dance Moms would lose its sparkle after the masterpiece that was Season 1, but within the first minute of last night's premiere, I knew I had nothing to worry about: Abby Lee Miller is back, and as twisted as ever. The whole plotline about casting a new girl was completely over the top and cruel, and if I took a shot every time Abby told a child or mother that "Everyone's replaceable," I'd be a goner. Moving forward, the jury's still out on whether "900 Number" Jill and Kendall will be a satisfying addition to the group, but until then, let's all laugh at the most ridiculous -- and, not-so-coincidentally, heinous -- lines of the evening. Shockingly, none of them are from Cathy, but we're got all season for those.
