Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 4, 2012 Another week has gone and the field has trimmed to eight on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. This week the karaoke kids are singing songs from the 80s because why not sing a bunch of songs that have no barring at all on music today in a competition to find the singer who will best represent SONGS OF TODAY. Whatever, its IDOL logic that never makes any sense. Just a bit of rant before I […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Jewpacabra”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 4, 2012 It figures SOUTH PARK would eventually deliver a clunker at some point during Season 16 and that honor goes to the ambitious, promising, but ultimately flat “Jewpacabra.” This will be known as the episode where Cartman finally becomes a Jew and understands Kyle’s pain, but a promising premise ultimately gets undermined by a lack of focus. In what starts off as another way for Cartman to ruin a holiday (namely Passover and Easter), Cartman invents the legend of the “Jewpacabra.” It’s under the […]Read On »

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Anjelica Houston Writers: Scott Burkhardt Director: Paul McGuigan Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: April 4, 2012 After the nosedive SMASH took last week, the only place to go was up which is what “Hell on Earth” does, but only marginally. It’s another wading water episode until we get some movie star power with Uma Thurman next week. The big news this week is watching Ivy (Megan Hilty) go on a downward spiral into self-pity and heavy medication (shades of Marilyn?). It’s already been established she has adverse reaction […]Read On »

The producers of CASTLE are busy throwing a massive monkey wrench into the whole Castle/Beckett couple thing to ratchet up the drama for the next six weeks so that they can have a massively explosive season finale/cliffhanger and they still won’t let Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) get together even after that because they’re still stuck in the whole relationship equals […]Read On »
