Nene Leakes Tests Star Jones’ Street Skills On “Celebrity Apprentice”

Celebrity Apprentice” has been hyping this girl fight between Nene Leakes and Star Jones all season. I’ve been watching and waiting, but was starting to think it was never going to happen. But OH. It went down on Sunday night. Nene went totally batty on Star in front of Donald Trump and the Biosilk/Chi executive. Awkward! Cringeworthy! My thoughts, after the jump. Keep reading »

9 TV Characters Who Deserve More Screen Time

Sometimes, there just isn’t enough time in an episode for all of our favorite characters to get a moment in the sun.

On almost every show there’s an unsung hero, always supporting the main players, only getting thrown a bone every now and then. Depending on the show, some characters are just given the shaft season after season. If we were calling the shots, these characters would come front and center (at least for a multi-episode arc!) and have their moment in the sun.

From characters who deal with the undead to a blue-haired cartoon boy, we want to see more of these characters on screen ASAP. Read more… Keep reading »

“Jem And The Holograms” Is Back!

I have some truly, truly, truly outrageous news. My new favorite network, The Hub, will start airing reruns of “Jem and the Holograms” on May 31. “Jem” was hands down my favorite cartoon of the ’80s, and I guess in many ways was the precursor to “Hannah Montana.” I distinctly remember the joy of racing home after school to watch owner of Starlight Music, Jerrica Benton, transform herself (thank you, Synergy!) into pink-haired rock star and frontwoman of the rad band, Jem and the Holograms. Honestly, my favorite part of the show was their rival band The Misfits. Heck, I was even Stormer for Halloween two years ago. I cannot wait to rewatch this series. I already have The Misfits anthem, “Welcome to the Jungle,” in my head. [EW] Keep reading »

Oh No, There’s A British “Jersey Shore” — It’s Called “Geordie Shore”

American culture is spreading throughout the world … spreading like herpes. Behold, a British version of “Jersey Shore” on MTV UK: “Geordie Shore” stars thickly accented lads and lasses Jay, Vicky, Gary, Charlotte-Letitia, James, Sophie, Greg and Holly — who says she is “fierce, flirty and I’ve got double Fs!” — in the northeastern city of Newcastle. It’ll air Tuesday, May 24 at 10 p.m. in the UK. British “Jersey Shore” proves the allure of fake tans, tube tops, and puking your guts out is indeed universal. But — serious question — do they fist pump?

“The Voice” Hits All The High Notes

I”m not a “Dancing with the Stars” fan — D-list celebs learning how to tango? No thanks! — and find everything else on the boob tube Tuesday nights to be totally boring. Until now. Last night, “The Voice,” an “American Idol”-inspired singing competition, debuted, and against my better judgment, I tuned in. So glad I did! For starters, “The Voice” doesn’t bother to show any of the crappy auditions — contestants having already been whittled down to just the best. After all, judges Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, and Blake Shelton are way too busy with their own successful careers to waste time listening to a bunch of talentless losers warble.

Get Wired

This past weekend, as I was conducting an experiment to find out how many hours I could spend on my couch before developing sofa sores, I finally decided to watch a show called “The Wire.” Perhaps you’ve heard of it. The critically acclaimed show aired on HBO for five seasons and ended its run in early 2008. Better late than never! Ten episodes into season one, it is my new obsession and I want, nay, need, the full series on DVD so there is absolutely no lull as I make my way through the rest of the episodes. Omar, Bubbles, and Stringer Bell might miss me.
