It’s official! “Mad Men” season six is back on Sunday, April 7th at 9p.m, bitches! Here are some teaser promo pics to get us obsessing over possible story lines. I haven’t a clue about what will happen.

More clues contained in the pics after the jump. Predictions? [ONTD] Keep reading »

As we eagerly await the season three premiere of “Downton Abbey,” consider this over tea and crumpets: life before Lady Mary was mucking up her love life and Lady Sybil was wearing pants. Julian Fellowes, the creator of of the show, has announced his plans for a spin-off drama, following the courtship of Lord and Lady Grantham. At a recent BAFTA lecture, he said, “I do have an idea of doing a prequel of the courtship. He only fell in love after they married. He married her for the money. That is something he came to feel quite guilty about.” Here’s what we have to say on the matter: SMASHING. Cora … that minx. And now I’ll have to talk in a British accent for the rest of the day.

Dear “The Voice,”

I heard the news that you will be replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green with Shakira and Usher next season. I hate this idea. Not because I love Xtina and Cee Lo so much that I can’t stand to lose them, but because you seem to be getting a touch of “American Idol” syndrome.

That’s not a real syndrome, I just made it up. It’s when a reality competition show gets really successful, really quickly, and instead of sticking with what made it really successful, really quickly in the first place, it gets all full of itself and tries to change everything, therefore ruining itself. That was a really long sentence. What I’m trying to say to you is: don’t ruin yourself, “The Voice.” Keep reading »

This season of “Bachelor Pad” atoned for all of its boringness in the finale. Let’s start off light, before I delve into the dark and dirty underbelly where people betray one another and we ponder the ways in which money corrupts human beings. Let’s start with Jamie’s ridiculous Pocahontas outfit. It’s as if she thought we would forget what a lunatic she was on the show by dressing like an even bigger lunatic for the finale. It didn’t work. I had almost forgotten. But her outfit brought all the cringeworthy memories back — the awkward makeout session with Chris, how she wanted to fall in love on TV so her kids could see it. Ugh. And just like the false eyelashes and face jewelry she wore, her Padmates called her out for being “fake.” But one couple found something real. Find out which couple, to quote Rihanna, “found love in a hopeless place,” after the jump. Keep reading »

“Top Dog Model”: Meet The Bitches

I’ve got to hand it to the Brits for taking reality TV to a whole different level. Ashleigh and her Border Collie/Bichon Frise/Chinese crested mix, Pudsey, winners of “Britain’s Got Talent,” are hosts of a new show called “Top Dog Model.”

NOT A JOKE. It’s exactly what you think it is: “America’s Next Top Model” for dogs. A panel of judges including Ashley and Pudsey, “X Factor” contestant Stacey Solomon, fashion model Lilah Parsons and Hollywood dog agent Addison Witt will test the most poised pups in the country as they go paw-to-paw in dog modeling challenges. In the end, only one canine will have what it takes to be crowned “Top Dog Model.” The winner will be awarded an advertising campaign for a well-known brand. I assume a dog modeling contract and photo spread in Dog Fancy Magazine or something is also part of the prize package. Keep reading »

The preview for TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” featuring “a dollar makes me holler” Alana and her family, is upon us. We already know the go-go juice guzzling beauty queen and her gaseous mother June from “Toddlers & Tiaras,” but we have much to learn about the rest of her Georgia clan. Here’s what we know so far: They like to jiggle their tummies, are into competitive mud diving, may have a lice infestation, have all their teeth and have names like Sugar Bear, Pumpkin, Chubbs and Chickadee. Oh, and they are NOT rednecks. Or are they? The August 8th premiere can’t come soon enough. Check out the preview after the jump. Keep reading »

Dennis on "Small Town Security"

Maybe you caught the premiere episode of the new AMC series “Small Town Security” the other night, as it debuted directly after “Breaking Bad”? If not, you missed one hell of a crazypants show. The series chronicles the lives of several of the folks working at JJK Security, a small security firm in Northern Georgia. So far, it sounds like every other annoying reality TV show on AMC or TLC or the Discovery Network. But actually? This series is filled to the brim with oddities and surprises. After the jump, we give you 10 reasons why “Small Town Security” should be a required part of your Sunday night lineup, handcuffs and all. (And please, watch the illuminating clip, too!)

I’ve written before about my obsession with “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International,” how I watch approximately three episodes per day, how much I love to hate it, how I always end up yelling at the TV like a crotchety old man because the subjects of the show tend to talk about paint colors in the kinds of hushed, serious voices usually reserved for presidents facing a nuclear crisis. But now I’m feeling crotchety for a different reason: apparently the show is totally fake. Here’s a quote from a former House Hunter describing her experience:

“They didn’t even ‘accept’ us being a subject for the show until we closed on the house we were buying.  So then when they decided to film our episode we had to scramble to find houses to tour and pretend we were considering. The ones we looked at weren’t even for sale…they were just our two friends’ houses who were nice enough to madly clean for days in preparation for the cameras!” Keep reading »
