We've officially hit the reality doldrums of summer, where the Bachelorette has nearly chosen her mate, the So You Think You Can Dance contestants have been plagued by injury, the less talented America's Got Talent singers are getting voted through by the gen pop who are suckers for a sob story and the Big Brother twists have already fizzled out. But there is hope on the horizon, not just because Jersey Shore, The Rachel Zoe Project and Project Runway are returning to quench our reality thirst, but also because there is a whole new crop of shows still left to debut that sound intriguing. Some may be turn out to be duds, but here's hoping one of them is our next guilty pleasure.
It's a tale as old as Egyptian folklore, when those tall, bronze-skinned beauties discovered that smearing kohl around their eyes would not only ward off evil spirits, but help them look all pretty and wide-eyed while doing so. And that, my friends, is how I like to think the first makeover was born.
