Network: ABC, airs on Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: June 25, 2012 The BIG BROTHER knock-off THE GLASS HOUSE continues to progress despite being shown just once a week (I thought originally the show was going to be on three times a week but maybe the lack of ratings changed the network’s decision) and already you can see where only airing once a week is a bit of an issue. Cramming a week’s worth of reality show into a single hour is a tough thing do, especially when the whole point of the game is to show how the […]Read On »

TV Review: THE GLASS HOUSE – Season 1 – Series Premiere

Network: ABC, Airs on Mondays at 10 p.m. Original Telecast: June 18, 2012 ABC has long been trying to start a reality show franchise that it can own outside of THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE and DANCING WITH THE STARS powerhouses. They have tried to copy THE AMAZING RACE and failed. They had a great reality show in THE MOLE that never seemed to get off the ground in terms of viewers even though it was awesome. Now, they are trying to copy BIG BROTHER with THE GLASS HOUSE. Of course, this reality show made headlines before even airing because of the lawsuit […]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 »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Auditions No. 1 – Savannah” – Season Premiere

Cast: Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 18, 2012 I found the premiere episode of the 11th season of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, extremely amusing. No, not because of the lack of talent that was displayed traditionally, but because they focused on how many talents have come through the show in that span. I’m amused because it has been 10 years of going through these painfully bad auditions – again, not talking about the lack of talent, but the very fact that they […]Read On »

At age 89 (soon to be 90), Betty White is one of the hottest and most sought after comediennes currently working today and now NBC has nabbed her for a new reality show called BETTY WHITE’S OFF HER ROCKER. In the series, she gets septuagenarians to do outrageous “hidden camera” pranks. Though the show doesn’t currently have a release date, White did appear at today’s NBC TCA press event to speak about her fortunate career that seems to be getting hotter every year. “I’m having the time of my life,” says White. “Usually you’re sweating out ‘when is the next […]Read On »

One of the biggest surprises this December was the ratings success for the limited return of NBC’s once seminal reality series FEAR FACTOR. Even though it’s not currently scheduled for mid-season, NBC Entertainment Chairman sees the series as a utility player for the network for years to come. “FEAR FACTOR always seems to do well and it predates me,” says Greenblatt. “We actually ordered those episodes last summer because we worried we would have no NFL in the fall. I think we wanted the show to kind of expand on the stunts and the daring do of it. People like […]Read On »

TV Review: THE X FACTOR – SEASON 1 – “Auditions No. 1” – Series Premiere

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Cheryl Cole, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Sept. 21, 2011 I’ve got a funny feeling going here … Simon Cowell (and his too-tight shirts and new eyeliner) and Paul Abdul (and her crying and weird clapping) doing a music competition/reality show. A bunch of talented singers and a bunch of crazies and losers. Similar audition stories and a pompous host that is more annoying than anything else. But wait … it’s still hot outside? So yeah there are a little too many familiarities to THE X FACTOR […]Read On »

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT Season Six is over! Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. is the official winner of AGT Season Six. With a huge parade of acts performing tonight so much was going on at times I forgot why we were there. Def Leppard, One Republic, and Jackie Evancho all sang their hearts out in a prelude to the big announcement. Def Leppard certainly proved that they are still one of the best heavy metal bands of all time. Rock on! Ironically, when the final four acts got the chance to perform with their favorite famous counterparts during the season finale, they […]Read On »

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’s finals are finished! It’s all over. And now America will chose the winner of AGT Season Six. The last four acts have completed their AGT journey and now all they can do is wait ‘til tomorrow to see the results. Their destiny awaits them, although there is a really good chance that all four acts will win. Not necessarily the coveted AGT award, but an award to a fruitful and rewarding future of doing what they already do so very, very well. Sadly, it looks as though PopLyfe will be counting on just that tomorrow night. Their […]Read On »
