Heidi Klum is abiding by everyone's favorite age-old adage: sex sells!
The Emmys can just be so dull and predictable... or just outright boring. Does anyone remember last year's never ending Sopranos tribute complete with Jersey Boys singing? Yeah. This year they are trying to spice things up by having Josh Groban sing classic theme songs (yup, Friends is now classic), presenters recite memorable TV lines ("Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!"), recreating famous sets and reuniting stars of classic shows. Sounds like a lot is going on, but we've got some of our own ideas about how they could really make this show unforgettable, and, most importantly, watchable.
As we've established before, what you choose to watch on TV speaks volumes about the kind of person you are. And last night last night's programming dilemma definitely separated the men from the boys, or the girls from the boys, or the straight boys from the gays or what have you. You see, it was both the third and final presidential debate and the Project Runway finale. What to watch? If you're like me and don't own a home DVR (for shame, I know, but I'm working on it!) it entails running back and forth between the TVs in the living room and the bedroom, which kept the tensions high at the old Gitlin domicile last night, but provided the unforeseen benefit of a serious cardio workout.
So the all-new-all-different Project Runway Season Six premiered last night in its new home on Lifetime, and aside from the new setting in Los Angeles, it really wasn't that different. Which would have been fine, it's still an entertaining show, except it was sandwiched between an additional two and a half hours of Runway -- a two-hour All-Star Challenge and a half-hour spin-off, Models of the Runway. I know we've all been missing the show, and under normal circumstances I would have been happy to get three hours of it, but when it feels like you're watching the same episode over and over again, it gets a little old.
A lot of reality TV news here, from new episodes of I Get That a Lot (a show that's kind of like Punk'd, but not) to a new series that documents people battling a disease (whaaat?!). There's also a mandatory update on Jon & Kate, as well as some interesting statistics.
Apparently, this year being the first year that reality show hosts are eligible for Emmy awards isn't good enough for some people. DHD has reported that, according to a "reliable source," the hosts of this year's Emmy awards ceremony will be not one, not two, not three, not six, but all five of the nominees in the Reality Host category. So if you usually watch the show to escape reality TV (despite the fact that it... is... reality TV), you're S.O.L. But if you love reality TV and want to have a million of its babies live on a major network during primetime, you are in luck.
