Sitting through the 45-minute pilot episode of ReModeled (The CW's latest attempt at reality TV) was, in a word, excruciating. I care about the modeling world as much as the next moderate Project Runway or America's Next Top Model fan (so, "kind of"), but as far as the world of modeling agencies are concerned, unless they're helmed by Janice Dickinson, I couldn't find them less interesting. Not only does this series give an inside look at the wild world of those agencies; it also tries to be these current shows, too, and fails miserably in the end.

Tonight's the finale of Top Chef... if you still care. We lost non-professional interest weeks ago. Perhaps it's because we were coming off an all-star installment, so this was bound to be a letdown, or maybe the show just tried to change too many things and failed.

Shortly after announcing eleven new series yesterday, Bravo held their upfronts in New York City, where Bravolebrities (the most demeaning word to write) walked the blue carpet to discuss their series and skirt around actually saying anything of substance. To spare you mindless quotes that give, at best, vague details about what's going to happen next season on the various Real Housewives franchises, here are the most entertaining quotes of the evening:
Even the stars of Revolution don't understand why so many people are watching their show.
We may be tired of Supernatural, but we'll never say no to a reunion.
Now that the US government has successfully dealt with the world's most wanted terrorist we finally start thinking about things that matter, like musicals based on reality TV.
We're grateful for horrible reality TV personalities since without them, our favorite unscripted shows would be devoid of drama. And this fall, there are some real gems on the air, ranging from the hilariously moronic to the annoying to the downright disgusting to the unstable and rude - and in some cases, a combination of several or all of these characteristics. Here's our not so fond look at the best of the worst:
Both Lone Star and J.Lo's careers got lengthened a tiny bit today. Way to hustle, guys.
