Even though Madge said she’s not a fan of “Glee,” she’s changed her tune after an advanced screening of tonight’s episode, an homage to the Material Girl, calling it “brilliant on every level.” I hope she plans on sending them a case of Kabbalah water to make up for her impropriety. So what should we expect tonight? Well, we already know about Jane Lynch’s amazing “Vogue” remake. But ever since the song list was leaked, my mind has been abuzz with other possibilities for the wall-to-wall Madonna episode. After the jump, tonight’s soundtrack and our predictions for the plot lines that accompany them. [Fox] Keep reading »
The show “Cheaters,” which, amazingly, is in its 10th season, is pretty nasty. It airs on The CW Plus and G4TV so perhaps you haven’t seen it—but the basic concept is that a spouse who believes their significant other is doing the horizontal polka with someone else asks for help catching their partner with their pants down. The Cheaters Detective Agency investigates, gathers proof, and while the spouse is physically with whomever they are cheating with, they give the episode’s complainant the chance to confront them. It’s basically like an episode of “Jerry Springer,” in real time.
Well, this show is about to take the nastiness to a whole ‘nother level. Keep reading »
Sorry folks, but I am officially obsessed with watching Kate Gosselin
‘s sad “Dancing with the Stars” routines
. Last night, she and partner Tony fox trotted to “Don’t You Forget About Me” from “The Breakfast Club.” And it was … well, let’s just say that a blow-up doll would have brought more energy to it. I kind of love Carrie Ann’s comment that the dance was like “the Charlie Brown teacher’s. It’s like wah wah wah wah wah.” Please let her get voted off soon. For her own sake. Keep reading »
It’s really beautiful outside, yet this doesn’t make me want to leave the house to frolic in the sun. I think it’s because I’m depressed and it just seems like nature is laughing at me. Fortunately, my best friend, TV, is here to cheer me up. This week, there are the premieres of “Romantically Challenged” and “Party Down,” the finales of “Damages” and “Project Runway,” a live reunion special for “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” and the Madonna “Glee” episode. Suck it, sun. Keep reading »
For the last few weeks, I had been hearing from friends that the show “Parenthood” was reaaaallllly good. Only, no one explained why. But that was enough for me. So this past weekend I had a date with Hulu and now I am officially obsessed with the entire Braverman family. And you should be too! To say the least, “Parenthood” is the perfect show for women and, unlike my friends, I can actually give you 10 reasons why. Keep reading »
The latest “True Blood” teaser poster foreshadows the next shape Sam Merlotte will assume. We saw the dog in season one, the fly in season two, so we’re guessing he’ll appear as a bull in season three. Keep reading »
When last we saw “Californication”‘s Hank Moody (David Duchovny), he was being hauled off to jail after a fight with love Karen that spilled out into the street. So it’s no surprise that when the Showtime series returns for its fourth season later this year, Hank will have a new love interest. Who is it? Find out! Keep reading »
It’s such a shame that almost as soon as Betty Suarez ditched the braces, plucked her eyebrows and started wearing funky ensembles that were cool rather than weird, “Ugly Betty” is over. From episode one, I loved the show. Part of it was that, when the series began, I was an associate editor at Jane and appreciated that, while incredibly hyperbolic, the portrayal of Mode wasn’t that far off from what I witnessed on a daily basis. Sure, I never donned a poncho, but there were definitely moments when I, with my dreams of being a “serious” journalist, felt grossly out of step with the world around me. And having served as an editor-in-chief’s assistant for two years, I really liked how the show captured that intense bond between editors and assistants in a much more real way than, say, “The Devil Wears Prada.” As the show progressed, I loved how Betty started to come into her own, landing an assistant editor gig and breaking hearts along with way.
But I wasn’t exactly sure what to make of last night’s episode. (If you’re waiting to watch it, I would stop reading now.) Keep reading »
