Why is Your Dog Wearing Leg Warmers?

I LOVE dogs, so against my better judgment I decided to record that CBS show America’s best dog, and I finally got around to watching it the other day. While the show wasn’t particularly good mainly because, unlike real dog shows this one focused on the owners more so than the pets. And of course... Sign in to see full entry.

Ms. Universe, A deceptive title

I only caught a little bit of the Ms. Universe Pageant as I was out to dinner for a friend’s birthday. While I only watched the last half hour or so, I did watch enough to know that Jerry Springer should not have been MCing. I’m sorry but Jerry doesn’t say classy pageant to me. I half expected the...

My One and Only Reality Show

I don’t know if Project Runway (PR) can be called a reality show or a competition, but whatever it is, I love it. Heidi and Tim are always fabulous, Nina is a little mean and Mr. Kors always brings his expertise. Although I liked Rami the best last season, I was not at all surprised that Christian...

Jesse, Fox is Not Your Friend!

How did the Rev. Jesse Jackson not know that Fox news was going to try to set him up? We all know that Fox news is the most biased, racist reporting on TV and really I don’t see why Jesse would agree to appear on Fox and Friends first place. Once Bill O’reily got a hold of the tape where Jesse... Sign in to see full entry.

Arrested on the Silver Screen!

Of all the shows that have been canceled before there time, I think Arrested Development is definitely my favorite. It was one of the funniest sitcoms to ever broadcast and I was so sad to see it go. I still watch old episodes on the internet and on DVD. Gob was my favorite character and I was so... Sign in to see full entry.

Does Art Imitate Life or Vice Versa?

Dennis Haybert who played the first black president on the hit series 24 seems to think it’s the former. He has recently commended himself for paving the way for Barak Obabma’s presidential campaign. Never mind all of Obama’s hard work and his new philosophy that’s bringing a fresh eye to politics.... Sign in to see full entry.

Suing NBC

NBC just settled a lawsuit filed by the sister of an accused pedophile who committed suicide after being investigated by Dateline’s “To Catch a Predator.” I’m really mad that NBC settled this suit because I wouldn’t have paid them a dime. First off, he was a pedophile and I have absolutely no... Sign in to see full entry.

Bye Bye Mr. Big

Chris Noth will be leaving L&O Criminal intent, this will be his last season. While I think he's an OK actor, everytime I watch Criminal Intent, I think to myself "Mr. Big doesn't solve crimes, he's to cool for this!" I guess the producers felt the same way because he is being replaced with Jeff... Sign in to see full entry.

What is the definition of a celebrity?

According to the formal definition it is a person who is widely recognizable or who commands a lot of media attention. Apparently this definition doesn’t apply to reality shows. I don’t really watch reality TV and that decision can’t be reversed by adding celebrity to the show’s name. Especially... Sign in to see full entry.
