ABC’S “Conveyor Belt Of Love” Turns Dating Into A Manly Meat Market


You know how when you walk into a bar around closing time, when everyone’s trying to decide who tonight’s one-night-stand is gonna be, you feel like a piece of meat being sized up for dinner? Well, I guess ABC does, because they’re planning this amazingly questionable show called “Conveyor Belt of Love.” The concept is this: five women watch 30 men go by on a conveyor belt and have to decide whether they’re “interested” or “not interested.” It gets better; after they have picked a guy, if a guy they like more comes along, they can upgrade! And if two women like the same guy, then he gets to pick one of them. Afterward, we get to witness their dates. Right now this show is just slated to be a special, premiering on Jan. 4, after the season premiere of “The Bachelor.” But with this kind of buzz and potential for offensiveness, I’m thinking it just might have some staying power? It’s kind of like “America’s Got Talent,” but more encouraging of the objectification of men. What’s not to like about that? [TV Over Mind] Keep reading »

Who’s The Guy Who Punched Snooki?

Next week’s episode of “Jersey Shore” looks like it’s going to be pretty brutal—while out partying at a Seaside Heights bar, the lovely (??) Snooki takes a right hook to the face that sends her flying off her stool. Apparently, some drunk jerk had taken her drink and had been harassing her roommates, so she confronted him about it. The guy was apparently super intoxicated—bouncers had already told him to watch it—and he let his fist do the talking. So who is this guy who punched Snooki? Apparently his name is Brad Ferro and he’s a 23-year-old … (wait for it) … high school teacher. Keep reading »

Liveblogging “Jersey Shore”!

Check back to this post starting at 10 pm EST — I’ll be liveblogging the second episode of “Jersey Shore,” the greatest, trashiest show since I don’t know what. In tonight’s episode, my beloved Snooki gets sucker punched, Ronnie catches Sammy givin’ her digits to another guido, and, like, Jager shots are done. Keep reading »

Snooki Gets Sucker-Punched On Tonight’s “Jersey Shore”

MTV’s latest and by-far-the-greatest, “Jersey Shore,” has seriously ruffled some tail feathers. In addition to the death threats MTV staffers have been getting, advertisers like Domino’s are threatening to pull their commercials from the show. Well, tonight’s episode—which Amelia will be liveblogging, natch—sure isn’t going to help the situation. (Ha, that’s funny ’cause one of the characters on the show goes by the guido nickname “The Situation.” Anyhoo …) Tonight, a group of drunk guys keep bothering the show’s women. When our dear Snooki tells them to go away, one of the guys punches her in the face so hard she gets bruised and has serious swelling. Because of the violent content of the episode, MTV is airing a PSA afterward that says, “Violence against women in any form is a crime.” Still, some are saying that they shouldn’t air the footage at all. Snooki doesn’t feel that way, though. “It should be out there. Everyone should know that it can happen,” she said. “But also, a positive came out of it. It brought [the cast] closer together.” Commence countdown to the start of the show. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Bobby Bottleservice Wants On “Jersey Shore”


In this Funny or Die parody, comedian Nick Kroll’s alter-ego “Bobby Bottleservice” auditions for MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” In his audition video, he says he plans on using his winnings from the show (he’s under the impression it’s a competition with prize money) to buy a gold jet ski, as well as calf implants. Oh, and for those who are worried he might be a misogynist like Mike “The Situation” and Pauly D, no worries. “I say breasts because I love women and I don’t call them cans or big fat titties because I love my mother and I respect women.” Can the show get a ninth roomie please? [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

History Is Cool Again In “The People Speak”

What are you doing this Sunday? If you know what’s cool, you’ll be rediscovering American history during The History Channel’s premiere of the documentary “The People Speak,” based on Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. Yes, I know you are having flashbacks of falling asleep during history class watching dreary videos about Christopher Columbus, who sailed the ocean blue in 1492 with the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Boring … right? But what if you were to hear Josh Brolin read the entries from Christopher Columbus’ personal diary or Eddie Vedder sing a Bob Dylan song? Now that’s interesting. Keep reading »

Chef Gino D’Acampo, who won the viewer-feedback contest series, and British soap actor Stuart Manning were charged after animal welfare activists lodged a complaint about a segment, which was filmed in Australia.

Anyway, Snooki explains what SnookTV is all about, above. I love her. Did I mention that I love her? I do. I love her. Keep reading »
