The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

Thanks to the Independence Day holiday, we were free from The Bachelorette idiots and the Real Housewives of New Jersey this week, but there were still plenty of horrible people gracing our televisions. That said, for a change we're going to give a little shout-out to Lindsey on Expedition Impossible, who is probably the least heinous person ever to be on reality television. She got trampled by a camel, didn't whine, got up and then basically dragged her blistered sister up a mountain and through a river. Good going, Linds.

MTV: Who Knew They Were Catering to a Civic-Minded Generation?

It might not be apparent to the casual viewer, particularly those of us who are members of the supposedly cynical Generation X, but MTV is actually gearing its current programming to the "civic-minded" millennial generation. Yes, really, that's what the president of MTV Networks believes. And though at first we had scoffed at his bold claim (we are, after all, grievously jaded), upon closer inspection (extremely close) and much to our surprise, we did indeed discover that shows like Jersey Shore and Teen Mom really are virtuous and educational after all. Here's why:

Ryan Seacrest Is The Frightened Nerd We Always Knew He Was My lovely boss Angel forced asked me to sit in on a conference call with Ryan Seacrest on the eve of his latest reality show offering, Momma's Boys. Doubtless you've already been bombarded by the show's promos but for the uninitiated, it's sort of a dysfunctional spin on the traditional reality dating show -- three guys who are creepily inordinately attached to and reliant on their moms are searching for love amongst the usual mansion-full of good girls, aspiring singers, ex-cons and Penthouse Playmates. The spin is that their moms are along for the ride, helping weed out the gold-diggers and totally c*&k-blocking their sons when they try to get sexay with the aforementioned "ladies" in the hot tub.

Little Miss Perfect: Let the Child Abuse Games Begin!

<i>Little Miss Perfect</i>: Let the Child Abuse Games Begin! After spending a good portion of my Sunday pouring over (read: being jealous of their sparkly outfits and Country Music Awards hair) VH1's kiddie pageant special Little Beauties: Ultimate Kiddie Queen Showdown yesterday, I was overjoyed to discover that the WE network has ordered up six one-hour episodes of a similar show called Little Miss Perfect, which isn't as creepy a title as Little Beauties, but does ring bitchier, so I'm on board.

Trailer Previews: Death Kisses, Dark Knight and Keanu Barada Nikto A handful of trailers and other filmic appetizers have come out for the holiday weekend, hoping to grab their share of movie-goers' attention some time between the third round of hotdogs and passing out on the sofa. You could hoist yourself up and head out to see a new release in the theater, during which you might see some of these new trailers, but sit back and relax. I've got them right here, within easy reach of your antacids and favorite pillow.
