Another one bites the dust.
Ain't nobody gonna come between Rachel, her man or her obsession with reality fame.
And now we know who the real losers on The Biggest Loser are.
Back in January, we included reality TV warhorses Survivor and The Amazing Race on our list of reality franchises that needed to be benched. At the time, both shows deserved to make that list as they were each coming off career-worst seasons filled with boring characters (Brandon Hantz anybody?), unimaginative challenges (setting up beach umbrellas... really?!) and a general lack of tension. Rather than watch these once-great shows continue to stumble downhill, we felt it best for all concerned that they take a prolonged break and return when they had some fresh ideas up their sleeves. But surprise, surprise: ever since Survivor: One World and the 20th Amazing Race premiered in February, both shows have been back on their game. In fact, we actually find ourselves anticipating -- rather than dreading -- each new episode (for now, at least -- there's still plenty of time life for these seasons to go south, after all). Here are the notable changes we think have improved both shows:
Reality announcements, cast reunions and overdone pilot ideas are today's big stories.
There have been a handful of highlights so far in this all-star season of The Amazing Race -- one truly difficult challenge (just like old times!), Mallory's adorableness, the fairly early and utterly humiliating Philimination of Margie and Luke -- but the show is still exhibiting plenty of big problems in its 18th cycle. Some are unique to this season, while others are issues it's had for a while. With the series getting an unsurprising renewal by CBS, there's still time to return it to its past glory. Here's what's been bugging us this spring:
Au revoir, Trouty Mouth.
It's a slow yet mildly entertaining day for TV news.
Brenchel continues their quest to dominate reality TV, one CBS show at a time.
A surprising amount of changes have occurred overnight. TV news, you old dog!
