We're hooked on Bravo's Gallery Girls, mostly because the ladies of the cast have been so consistently terrible since the pilot that, like a car crash or a Honey Boo Boo Child, we cannot look away. In this short first season, we've met so many awful people and seen so many crappy work environments that we're left with a long list of questions that we really hope are answered before the season finale in three weeks. If anyone has any explanations for us, we'd love to hear them, pronto.
Joss Whedon tries to sell Scarlett Johansson on the benefits of guest starring on his new S.H.I.E.L.D. series.
Bravo has recently aired two cases of cast members quite obviously cheating on their partners, and we're trying to figure out which incident was more disturbing:
The only awards show that gives power to the people who are least qualified to have it picks a pair of the least-qualified hosts around.
Ryan Murphy is clearing moving his eggs to a different basket.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? We'll never forget you, Dick.
Whoa, is it awards season again already?
While All-American Muslim was by no means a perfect show (we're still pissed at Shadia for the Wrigley incident), we were disappointed to learn that TLC cancelled it last week. Normalizing (and I use that word in the context of the social climate) Muslim-Americans to mainstream audiences -- even if some of the people on that show were annoying -- is a worthy cause, and All-American Muslim did do a bit of service to the community simply in terms of representing this diverse culture on television. If there was any hope that Shahs of Sunset would do anything to continue to teach viewers that Iranian-Americans were no different than "you and me," this program may have chosen the wrong handful of people to showcase.
The TCAs are upon on, which means lots of TV news this week.
It was really easy to blow off Season 1 of Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. Yeah, we recapped it and everything, but most of the world either tore it a new a-hole or completely ignored it because of its premise and/or its execution. Or maybe it's because many Bravo fans want to watch rich housewives pull out each other's weaves and cheftestants douse everything in liquid nitrogen without having to ponder what it all actually means, or because the average critic has little patience for ridiculous reality TV drama. I do think I'd be giving Work of Art too much credit if I said that it revolutionized or even challenged anything about the way we watch TV, but I will say that it's an underrated series and that I'm happy that it's back for a second season. In fact, I'd argue that this is one of Bravo's best shows, and we definitely saw glimpses of that on last night's premiere. Here's how:
