TV Review (and Photos): AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Top 11 Compete” – Plus the Gentle Giant gets the boot

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 14, 2012 It was a controversial world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, as contestant Jermaine Jones was booted from the show because of a past run-in with law enforcement. Gentle giant, huh? While this is indeed an interesting development as I guess he lied to the producers among other things (don’t they do background checks anymore?), the more interesting thing to me is that they didn’t replace him with anyone. I think bringing back Jeremy Rosado would be a […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: March 15, 2012 One of the thrills of watching SOUTH PARK, is not knowing where the show is heading and what topical subjects it’s going to tackle. As the series heads into its 16th season (yes, 16th!!!), the series still has its mojo intact with this very funny episode dubbed “Reverse Cowgirl.” It starts off with the boys playing with their friend Clyde when his mom has a cow that he’s left the toilet seat up again. Suffice to say, she’s a monster about it, but […]Read On »

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Jacquelyn Reingold Director: Dan Attias Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: March 12, 2012 Oh, for crying out loud! If there was ever a storyline that would make me want to dump SMASH, the affair between lyricist/book writer Julia (Debra Messing) and actor Michael (Will Chase), now heating up in “Chemistry,” would make me do it. Because there isn’t any chemistry between Messing and Chase. Because it’s just too tiresome that the one married character has to have an affair. Because it’s just too creepy the […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: JUSTIFIED star Joelle Carter is a creature of Elmore Leonard

On JUSTIFIED, FX’s hit series now in its third season Tuesdays at 10 PM, a lot of the characters are passionate, strong-willed rule breakers. This is obviously true of the hero, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, played by Timothy Olyphant, and his onetime childhood friend and now sometime ally/sometime adversary, the outlaw Boyd Crowder, played by Walton Goggins. However, Joelle Carter’s character Ava Crowder can and does give both men a run for their money in the gritty determination department. Ava shot and killed her abusive husband Bowman, who was Boyd’s brother. She then hooked up with Raylan for awhile, but […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Leigh Dana Jackson Director: Jack Bender Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 11, 2012 ALCATRAZ has fallen into the trap of giving us a reason for these inmates coming back from the past and into inmates just returning from the past for whatever reason to do ill will toward innocent civilians. Whereas the first few episodes of the show, those that returned had a purpose, were sent on missions by someone or some organization and whatever damage they did along the way […]Read On »
