I'm sure you are going to be shocked to find out that Donald Trump is not running for president. Do I need to grab the smelling salts?
Gaga mentoring the American Idol kids... will this include meat dresses?
It's that time of year when networks are finalizing their fall line-ups and deciding which current shows to keep or cancel. And while we'd like to see underrated procedural Detroit 1-8-7 get another chance, as well as the ridiculous, nonsensical guilty pleasure Off the Map continue, there are a plenty of other "bubble" shows that truly deserve to get their bubbles burst, freeing their casts and producers to seek better luck elsewhere. Here are the ones that most need to be axed, for everyone's sake:
Starting somewhere in its second season, Parks and Recreation became one of the best sitcoms on TV. Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson and the whole department went from being vague ideas of characters to fully realized people, each with their own stories and agendas. Everyone, that is, but Ann Perkins.
I'm trying to figure out if watching three hours of The Biggest Loser is the best or worst diet plan in the world. On the one hand, it is inspiring to see people shed these pounds. On the other hand, it sort of sucks that someone who won as many challenges and lost as much weight as Tara (or even Mike) did, has their accomplishments immediately dismissed as not good enough because they didn't lose the most insane amount of weight ever. The whole thing kind of makes me want to eat a cookie. Anyway, there's some other news out there happening, while I sit and ponder this weighty issue.
It's a slow yet mildly entertaining day for TV news.
Do you know where you were when you first caught VD? I was in my living room, watching the CW.
May sweeps starts tonight! Before your favorite characters kiss/get pregnant/kill Jack Bauer (maybe?!), here's your handy TV news.
If you watch Sunday's new Brothers and Sisters, you're probably going to be a little confused. You see, the episode is centered on Kevin and Scotty rallying to defeat California's Proposition 8, which we now know passed yesterday. Why would they air this episode days after the vote for it would have been tallied? Well, because back in the summertime, ABC decided to move the show's season premiere date back one week for whatever reason, and no one thought hey, but won't that mess up our election episode, not to mention our Thanksgiving episode, both of which we've already filmed? So yeah, that's what why you'll be confused this Sunday, and in a few weeks, when the Walkers celebrate Thanksgiving a week after the rest of America does.
Today's headlines reign in quality, not quantity, which is ideal for the news but not for Jersey Shore episodes. How could MTV only give us 10 hours with these people? I, for one, could've watched an entire episode of JWoww fighting with her boyfriend on the mallard phone while Vinny lay in bed with pink eye.
