Glee Recap: Mash Off

  Puck is in love with Shelby Corcoran. It doesn’t feel as unrealistic because of how old Mark Salling looks, but none-the-less we’re reminded that Puck is “eighteen” and not 29. He rocks out to “Hot for Teacher” and it was accented by a dance sequence by Blaine and Mike; I think the emphasis is […]

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Recap: Week 8 Performances (Instant Choreography)

(Image via ABC) We’re finally at the point where the contestants have to deal with two dances and we met the return of the Instant Dance. The Instant Dance is themed to Jive this year, so I’m convinced they are trying to get someone to fall from not knowing choreography. Will anyone rise to the […]

America’s Got Talent Review: For Polefessionals Only

The auditions on America’s Got Talent continued to hobble along last night, this time in New York City, where the freaks were out in full force. Just imagine how paranoid Howie must have really been paranoid about germs, as he emerged from a zorb. That was one of the highlights of an otherwise mediocre evening… […]

So You Think You Can Dance Review: Face-Punching Fun!

Following a shocking non-elimination last week, the pressure increased for the 20 remaining contestants last night. Along with Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, Debbie Reynolds sat in on the So You Think You Can Dance panel. Unfortunately, she thought everything was amazing and wanted to bring all the dancers to her home for some unknown […]

America’s Got Talent Review: My Heart Will Go Yawn

America’s Got Talent remained Atlanta for night two of auditions yesterday, as the features of the best and some of the oddest of performers. Let’s go over the children, bands and cavalcade of dance crews that hit the stage… The Real Talent Hershae Chocolatae – With the robe and wig Hershae was donning, I was […]

‘Platinum Hit’ recap – ‘Rap Heroes’

The Amazing Race Recap and Commentary S18E07

Sorry guys, busy weekend and another busy week. Here are both of my posts for TAR squished into one post: ‘The Amazing Race’ – “You Don’t Get Paid Unless You Win (Varanasi, India)” [‘The Amazing Race’ – Season 18 Episode 7] Kolkata, India. After being in first place last leg, Gary & Mallory had a […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 3 Performances & Results

Sorry for the delays in all these links. It’s busy season… This week, the celebrities got to pick their own music so even the non-actors had the ability to channel their emotions. It probably gave the non-actor/musicians a small opportunity to match the level of the celebrities with the natural ability to emote. Interestingly, most […]

Dancing with the Stars Recap – Week 2 Results

After a recap show that showed what felt like four hours of footage could have been squished into one hour, the elimination episode began. I’ll admit that DANCING WITH THE STARS continues to have the same exact format for eliminations where there is a guest singer, some professional dances, random celeb/pro banter, and every two […]

Dancing with the Stars Recap – Week 2

With eliminations this week, the contestants tried their best to increase their scores and most of them got into a groove. Romeo stopped complaining about looking feminine and instead went the polar opposite, constantly flirting. Even Wendy managed to bring some personality out despite her obvious dancing difficulties. But I really dislike the fact that […]

The Amazing Race: The Episode Where Ron Just Wanted To Disco

I’d normally be really upset with a heavy product placement-based Amazing Race episode, especially those episodes where the Travelocity gnome was just carried around with no real purpose. This episode was an exception, not only did the India-China tea trade make sense; it created a deceptively easy Roadblock. The roadblock was not a pure needle […]

‘Undercover Boss’ Recap: ‘Synagro’

[Undercover Boss – Season 2 Episode 19] With 860 employees and 34 states, Synagro is America’s largest waste-treatment company. It is led by President and CEO Bill Massa.

America’s Next Top Model: Diary Stealing Fun

Wasn’t it really unfair that during the America’s Next Top Model CoverGirl challenge one of the teams was given the task of defining “Bold and Colorful Eyes” when the other two had “Night” and “Day?” There were several words that I would have accepted: “Sunday Brunch,” “9 to 5,” or even “Day/Formal” to counteract the […]

America’s Next Top Model: Here’s The Latest Rankings

Brittani Current Ranking: 1 Previous Ranking: 3 Although she didn’t get the first call-out by Tyra, Brittani has provided the most consistency of all the girls. Though I’m not a fan of her anti-Alexandria position, she still went through and modeled really well. Read the full article at RTVC!

‘Top Chef: All-Stars’ Recap – ‘Last Supper’

[Top Chef – Season 8 Episode 15] The chefs all talked about how hard Tiffany fought to be in the competition. Richard was not upset about Mike having a winning streak and continued to emphasize how he had so many wins. Antonia was a bit upset that Richard and Mike have already counted her out; […]

DANCING WITH THE STARS Season Premiere Recap

This season of Dancing with the Stars is missing something: the big tabloid/political figure that everyone would be talking about. Last season had Bristol Palin and seasons back it was Kate Gosselin causing all the drama. I have that feeling that Dancing with the Stars was really banking on Christine O’Donnell, but she backed out. […]

The Amazing Race: The Episode Where Ron Slams The Door On Christina

Don’t you hate it when the preview for The Amazing Race gives away plotlines? I would have been very surprised about Kent & Vyxsin’s successes if we didn’t see that clip where they were racing with Jamie & Cara towards the U-Turn when I was watching 60 Minutes. This episode made me miss the old […]

‘Undercover Boss’ Recap: ‘MGM Grand’

America’s Next Top Model: Jaclyn’s Booty Leads – Here’s The Rankings

Jaclyn Current Ranking: 1 Previous Ranking: 2 She has the charm and she pops her booty when Tyra tells her to. It’s the perfect combination: being nice helps Jaclyn get a very positive edit, but it also shows that she’s willing to do anything to win the competition. Jaclyn needs to continue progressing her walk, […]
