Quite the day for news to start off President's Day weekend right! Check out what Kiefer Sutherland, Leelee Sobieski, and Howie Mandel all have in common (hint: pilot).
I'm so glad this Mobbed show exists just so all of the things that horrify and upset me can live in one place where I can just ignore them collectively. It's very convenient. And after watching this one episode, I don't ever need to see another because I think I'm kind of scarred for life.
So, something happened when my sister came to stay with us over the holidays. No, not that we stayed up until 2 AM watching BBC documentaries (which we did). No, not that we each ate our weight in Turtles (which we also did). On Christmas Eve, we were wrapping gifts, and since nothing else was on, she put on Deal Or No Deal, which I had never watched before.
When I saw she'd put it on, I was all, "Oh, LEAH. I can't believe you watch this show! Wouldn't you rather look for a nice documentary on DVD instead?"
Ten minutes later: "That's a pretty crappy deal from the banker. Geez."
Ten more minutes after that: "SEVENTEEN! PICK SEVENTEEN!!!!"
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.
