Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of March 29th 2010

Spring has sprung (kinda) but just because it’s nice out doesn’t mean you’ll be able to pry me from my couch. There is way too much going on with my real friends … the ones in the TV. This week, we have the season finales of “Kell on Earth” and “Greek,” the season premieres of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and “In Plain Sight,” and another good week for my new favorite show, “Modern Family.” Keep reading »

“Pretty Wild,” Pretty Stupid: Cue A Jailbait Joke

In the latest episode of “Pretty Wild,” Alexis Neiers and Tess Taylor did a photo shoot with Vernon Davis, tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, where they dressed up as cheerleaders. I blame the pom-poms for why a grown-ass man like Davis would agree to a “date” with Alexis afterwards. (Guess he never heard of her alleged involvement in the “bling ring”? Cue the jailbait jokes … )

After the jump, watch one more clip from “Pretty Wild”: Keep reading »

“Married By 30″: New Reality Show For Desperate Brides

Not content with women marrying men they barely know (“The Bachelor”), or have never met (“Who Wants To Marry A Millionaire?”), the Reality TV gods bring us “Married By 30,” about the world’s most desperate/pathetic women and gay men who HAVE to marry by the big Three-Oh. “Married By 30″ is currently casting 26- to 28-year-olds who are “part of the New York social scene and preferably spend summers in the Hamptons” to pick a wedding date and let cameras follow them for one year while they plan The Big Day. Because making a legally-binding contract to another person before some arbitrary, yet culturally significant, birthday is an awesome idea. Considering the company casting the show is College Humor, we’re hoping this is one big joke. But, on the chance that “Married By 30″ will seriously be shown on a “premier, upscale cable network,” I think we now know who won’t be “part of the New York social scene” anymore.

6 Crazy Things Ads Want You To Believe Are True

Commercials are duplicitous. They are designed to illicit the same response from us as a burning fire; our interest level is minimal at best yet we can’t tear ourselves from a constantly shifting image. Advertisers do this to protect the absurdity in every commercial, encouraging viewers to watch, but not too intently that reason might step in and say, “What the hell is going on here?” And ordinarily, we accept it without argument the same way we accept blue raspberry as a legitimate flavor.

While Flying, Flight Attendants Score IFBs

Apparently, flight attendants not only flirt — they have “IFBs” (that is, in-flight boyfriends). So it was revealed on last night’s “Fly Girls” series premiere.

“It’s a cute guy that you scope out to help the time fly,” explains one Virgin America flight attendant.

See how it’s done when she sets her eye on the hottie in 18C. The girl’s got game. Watch it Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of D.C.”: The White House Party Crashers And Others Rumored To Be In The Cast

Do the names Michaele and Tareq Salahi sound familiar? You probably know them as the “White House party crashers.” The Salahis are the couple that created a security frenzy when they were able to get into Obama’s State Dinner uninvited. In the media barrage that followed, White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers lost her job, and the Salahis place on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of D.C.” was apparently cemented. Though initial rumors about the Salahis’ role in the show were ignored by Bravo, it turns out that station already had the couple signed on for the show at the time of the State Dinner. Bravo is even said to have had cameras at the event to capture the Salahis’ illegal arrival. Now that the controversy and threat of legal action against the couple has calmed, Bravo plans to make the couple the center of new series, which premieres in July. [The Daily Beast]

But the Salahis are only one-fifth of this new installment of Bravo’s feisty franchise. After the jump, keep reading to see what housewives are rumored to be bringing some cattiness to Capitol Hill this summer. Keep reading »

“True Blood” Season 3 Is Brewing

After months of placating myself with reality television because both “Mad Men” and “True Blood” have been off the air, I finally get a glimmer of hope via this teaser poster for the third season of “True Blood.” I am now officially in a tizzy of anticipation for the show and all it took was an appliance full of colored corn syrup. Who else is ready to drink up another season of sex, scandal and Sookie? Keep reading »

Quotable: Chloë Sevigny Says “Big Love” Sucked This Season

“It was awful this season, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not allowed to say that! [Gasps.] It was very telenovela. I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political campaign seemed to me very farfetched. I mean, I love the show, I love my character, I love the writing, but I felt like they were really pushing it this last season. And with nine episodes, I think they were just squishing too much in. HBO only gave us nine Sundays … I think that they had more story than episodes … We never know what’s going to happen in the next episode until we’re almost finished shooting the one we’re shooting at present. Me and the girls [Jeanne Tripplehorn and Ginnifer Goodwin] definitely were not very happy with where it was going—or more kind of, ‘We really hope it’s going to work. It seems like they’re really pushing it.’”

Chloë Sevigny explains why I’ve preferred watching Bravo repeats to checking out this season of “Big Love” via OnDemand. What are your thoughts on the show? And will someone please tell me who J.J. is trying to have an incest baby with? Is it his and Nicki’s daughter? Thanks. [A.V. Club] Keep reading »
