The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of October 11, 2010

We’re a few weeks into the fall TV season, and a lot of shows are hitting it out of the ballpark so far—”How I Met Your Mother,” “Glee,” “America’s Next Top Model,” “Hellcats,” and “Modern Family” to name a few. But this week, the television I’m most interested in watching is going down on Thursday and Sunday nights. After the jump, see the great shows airing those nights, from the premiere of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” to a live episode of “30 Rock” to the season finale of “Mad Men.”

VH1′s “My Big Friggin’ Wedding” = “Jersey Shore” + “Bridezillas”

What happens when “Jersey Shore” meets “Bridezillas”? The best Worst TV Ever.

On VH1′s new show “My Big Friggin’ Wedding,” the producers of “Jersey Shore” follow five real-life couples — two from Long Island, three from New Jersey — as they try to sober up long enough to walk down the aisle. Meet Tammie and Danny from Massapequa, NY; Amanda and Matt from Elmwood Park, NJ; Megin and Johnny from Wood Ridge, NJ; Alyssa and Tyler from Egg Harbor, NJ; and Sandra and Joey from Lynbrook, NY. It’s got drinking! It’s got the bride’s mom barfing at the bachelorette party! It’s got racist relatives! And it’s got Johnny, the “Meatball King of New Jersey”! (Sorry, ladies, he is obviously taken.) “My Big Friggin’ Wedding” will debut Monday November 1, at 9 p.m. EST on VH1, and yeah, I will so, so be watching this. [VH1] Keep reading »

5 Actors Who Have Writing Projects On The Side

You probably know actor Bill O’Malley as Kurt’s currently comatose dad on “Glee.” And while he knows that all the Gleeks are desperate to find out if he makes it or kicks the bucket, Bill would rather talk about the project he is bringing to life on the side. When O’Malley isn’t listening to the sweet serenades of New Directions, he is writing and producing the upcoming Showtime series “Shameless,” which will star William H. Macy and premiere in January. No musical numbers are involved.

Check out what other stars are working on scripts, screenplays, and stage numbers. Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” To Air Second “Women Of SNL” On November 1

After a successful ladyflower extravaganza hosted by Betty White last spring, on Monday, November 1, “Saturday Night Live” will air yet another ode to the vag. The “Women of SNL” special will blend both new and old, mixing classic clips with new material from Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and others. Yay … I think? I would watch two hours of these ladies clipping their toenails. (Call me, Tina.) But at some point, “SNL” should not need these specials. The show should just have lots of funny women comics and writers all the time. Hire a funny black lady so damn Kenan Thompson doesn’t keep having to wear a dress and lipstick, you hear?

“Dancing With The Stars” Courted Todd Before They Asked Bristol

“They wanted Todd to be on the show. I think that would have been cool to see, too. But here Bristol is… doing something all new … [If I were on the show], they would have to let me dribble back and forth and maybe pivot and do a jump shot or something as part of the routine. In fact, when Bristol said, ‘I don’t know how to dance,’ I told her, just think of it as learning some basketball plays.”

Sarah Palin lets it slip that “Dancing with the Stars” originally wanted Todd Palin for the show before they set their sights on Bristol. And she also shares the dancing advice she gave her daughter. I guess mommy doesn’t know best. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
