Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of January 4th 2010

So the last few weeks have been a little eh in terms of television—with the reruns, holiday specials, and what-not. But finally, we are back to the good stuff. First up—cue the co-pilot jokes—the season premiere of “The Bachelor.” Also bringing new year reality cheer, “Celebrity Rehab” has a brand-new, sure-to-shock cast. Plus, “Big Love” is back in a big way. More details, and videos, after the jump. Keep reading »

Meet Pilot Jake’s Bachelorettes!

Tonight, “The Bachelor”‘s 14th season premieres — it’s, gag, called “The Wings Of Love” — and I, against my better judgment, will be liveblogging the episode each week. I am hoping and praying that if our Bachelor, Pilot Jake (who made a splash on last season’s Bachelorette, Jillian Harris), does indeed bring the boring, as I expect he will, his legion of drooling bachelorettes will at least provide the crazy. If the look of insanity in their eyes is any indication of their potential to make drama, I’m hoping Ella and Kirsten are around for a while. But of course, eventually the bunny boilers are weeded out and we’ll be left with Pilot Jake’s faves. Last season I pretty capably picked a few of the favorites before the first episode aired and this season I’m trying again, with only my gut instinct to guide me. After the jump, the six bachelorettes to keep an eye on. Keep reading »

Coming Soon: “Jersey Shore” Porn Spoof!

Well, I think we knew this was coming. Zero Tolerance Entertainment is hard at work on a porn spoof based on MTV’s “Jersey Shore” and, yes, you guessed it, the film will be called “Jersey Whores.” According to Fleshbot, casting has already started and we’re more than slightly underwhelmed by some of their choices. We know it can be hard to find exact doppelgangers within the porn biz, but Dylan Ryder looks nothing like Sammi Sweetheart. And seriously, can Taryn Thomas’ hair even hold a pouf like our beloved Snooki? One upshot to “Jersey Whores” is that, miraculously, the dudes cast to portray “The Situation” and DJ Pauly D are both way better-looking, if not the slightest bit guido-esque. Keep reading »

A “Shocking” New Twist For This Season’s “Bachelor”


ABC is airing a new promo for the upcoming season of the “Bachelor” in which one of the women is overheard shrieking about one of her competitors: “She’s been having a sexual affair with somebody else in the Bachelor House.” If you’re anything like my husband, you immediately have fantasies of hot girl-on-girl action, but the NY Post reports that a fan website, FansOfRealityTV.com, has been claiming for weeks that it was actually a male production crew member who was hooking up with one of the contestants during filming of the “Bachelor” this past fall. If the rumor’s true, I say more power to the woman! Of course, fraternizing between cast and crew on reality shows is usually strictly prohibited, but seeing as how the producers chose the most boring man in the world to be this season’s Bachelor, they ought to be thanking their lucky stars for a little distraction.

How Dare They Mess With Greatness?!

Hey, Life & Style? While I am usually a fan of makeunders, I really liked the “Jersey Shore” cast exactly as they were. Why did you have to “class” them up with those fancy dresses and stupid man vests? How could you deflate Snooki’s pouf? That’s just … wrong. [Just Jared]

A Christmas Miracle: The “It’s Always Sunny” Gang To Open A Real Bar In Philadelphia


My parents thought it was bad parenting to teach children to believe in invisible men that break and enter homes through chimneys once a year in tacky red suits to give overpriced gadgets to unappreciative children, but I think the gentlemen in red is entirely responsible for this. Mac and Dee of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” are opening a real bar in the City of Brotherly Love. I live here! And I’m going to go to Mac and Dee’s bar! Keep reading »
