Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 13, 2012 Decision time and would we have a shocker on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL? Well, by now you know that in some mind boggling voting process Jessica Sanchez got the least amount of votes. However, the judges saved her from elimination to sing again. Elise Testone and Joshua Ledet were also in the bottom three. OK, before we move on just a bit on the comments from Jimmy Iovine. I love this part of the […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 1, 2012 It’s decision time on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. But why do we need a two-hour results show? Seriously, we have had four freaking hours already of this show why make us suffer through fluff, needless drama and lousy bits? Just give us the results and move along. Luckily, they went right to most of the results at the beginning but it proved they could have squeezed it into an hour. I’ll spare you the […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Semifinalist Girls Perform”

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 29, 2012  After the men delivered a mix bag of songs on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, the chicks are up and hopefully will perform better. Now, obviously I was in the minority when it comes to the judging given how much every singer was just dandy in their eyes last night. Maybe it sounded better on the stage then across the TV, but it certainly appeared at times we were not listening to the same song. […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 28, 2012  So it begins … Seacrest said it best at the start of the show, after weeks of enduring wave after wave of auditions and narrowing the contestants to just 24, the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, has finally reached the point where the voting starts. Let me just get this out of the way first … no nip slip J.Lo? Really? I guess this show isn’t good enough for you, eh? And by good enough I […]Read On »

DANCING WITH THE STARS Recap: Ralph Macchio is karate kicked off DWTS

Lightening didn’t strike twice on DANCING WITH THE STARS as Ralph Macchio (and his partner Karina Smirnoff) were karate chopped off the show, placing him in fourth place for season 12. Unlike last week when somehow he escaped elimination after coming in last – partially due to a knee injury – this week his luck ran out and Hines Ward, Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane earned their place in the finals next week. The judges basically made their picks last night…Alley, Ward and Kane would go to the finals. Their low scores for Macchio basically told him that last night. […]Read On »

DANCING WITH THE STARS Recap: Romeo bids adieu to DWTS

It’s a DANCING WITH THE STARS miracle! Ralph Macchio is saved while Romeo is cut loose from DWTS. In the biggest shocker since Petra Nemcova got the heave ho a few weeks back, Romeo ends his run (with his partner Chelsie Hightower) on Season 12 of DWTS and places fifth in the competition. The fans have spoken and they want Macchio in the semi-finals, along with Kirstie Alley, Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward. The results show week eight brought Alley the encore, which scored her that coveted first “10”. Her encore may actually have been even better than her Monday […]Read On »

DANCING WITH THE STARS Recap: Kendra Wilkinson shimmies her way off the dance floor

Finally the DANCING WITH THE STARS fans have voted reality star Kendra Wilkinson’s booty off the dance floor along with partner Louis Van Amstel. She lasted through seven weeks during Season 12 and many low scores, but they apparently have had enough of her shimmy shaking. It was definitely time for her to go. The other five … Ralph Macchio, Hines Ward, Romeo, Chelsea Kane and even Kirstie Alley are all better than she is. It would be unfair for anyone else to go, true that happens all the time, but not tonight! The encore tonight given to Team Chelsea’s […]Read On »

DANCING WITH THE STARS Recap: Pro wrestler Chris Jericho body-slammed out of the competition

Season 12 of DANCING WITH THE STARS is getting really nit picky! At this point in the show it should be called One False Move because anyone can and will go home if you have one less than spectacular night and not enough of a fan base to pull you through. And that’s just what happened with pro wrestler Chris Jericho who blew it with a weak performance on Monday’s telecast, leaving behind just six stars … Romeo, Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio, Chelsea Kane, Kendra Wilkinson and Hines Ward in a dance off race to the end. In a new […]Read On »

DANCING WITH THE STARS Recap: Petra Nemcova sent packing early due to Super Model Curse

In the first shocker of season 12, super model Petra Nemcova gets eliminated from DANCING WITH THE STARS – Season 12. It’s well known that models never get too far on DWTS. In fact, they are usually first to go. However, it seemed Nemcova had somehow made a clean getaway from “the curse of the super model”. Wrong! The curse caught up with her when she was let go from the competition after tying for last place with Kendra Wilkinson and Ralph Macchio Monday night. Coming in last is the time when a solid fan base is your only hope. […]Read On »
