Bachelor by the Numbers: There's No Crying in Baseball!

Week 5 finds the Bachelor and his harem in Puerto Rico.  There are two 1-on-1 dates up for grabs, and a group date, the latter of which consists of a baseball game.  The clue for the mystery date read: “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”  Lyndzi, who is about as coordinated on the field as Bambi learning to walk, said (rather unconvincingly),”These diamonds are way better than the sparkly kind!”  Yeah, right.  I didn’t buy it either.  The winning team won a beach date with Ben....more

The Bachelor by the Numbers: Week Four

Tonight’s episode is brought to you by Park City, Utah – where a man can take 8 women on a group date and nobody bats an eye.Thirteen women started the evening, but only 11 were there for the champagne toast at the end of the episode.  It was kind of a boring episode in that nobody needed medical attention and/or had a major meltdown....more

The Bachelor is Still Ridiculous...

I wasn’t going to write about “The Bachelor” because enough ink has been spilled on this topic over the last ten years but I have to break my silence.  After three “at the end of the day”s in 15 minutes during episode one, I had to bring out my reporter’s notebook and really break things down.  After Alex, Aaron, Andrew, Bob, Jesse, Byron, Charlie, Travis, Prince Lorenzo, Andrew, Brad, Matt, Jason, Jake, Brad (again), and Ben…only one marriage has resulted from this (and it was to the runner-up, not the original girl Jason gave the final rose to)....more

TV Shines a Light on the Dark Underbelly of Suburbia

Two vastly different television series have premiered this fall with a common theme.  Both Suburgatory (ABC comedy, Wednesday nights at 8:30pm) and American Horror Story (fX drama, Wednesday nights at 10pm) give us a peek at the weirdness lurking on the other side of those manicured suburban lawns.  Suburgatory has more bullies, vamps and psych...more

Just When Reality TV Was Starting to Pi$$ Me Off

I am not much of a reality TV watcher. I find the Bachelor/Bachelorette nauseating, and yet I have to work not to even get a GLIMPSE, or I will mindlessly watch it and yell feminist mantras at the television. This has happened several times in a seedy-no-channel-having hotel on a work trip and all bets were off. I feel bad for my hotel neighbors, listening to me yell "Don't do it!!" and "Run, RUUUUN!"... ...more

I might have to watch The Secret Millionaire.

Men Moderating The View for the First Time in 13 Years: Does Barbara Walters Know About This?

For a 13-year-old show, The View is all over the news this month. Star Jones, who left the show in a whirlwind of drama a few years ago, is reporting that she's writing a dishy novel that skewers female talk show hosts. Then the show caught press this week when ABC pulled The View's advertisements from Perez Hilton's website after he published a link to a controversial photo of Miley Cyrus with her skirt in the wind. Now The View is stirring up more buzz, by breaking open their brand in a bizarre way: the formerly female-led panel is manning up to broadcast the dude point of view. ...more
