Pondering Primetime --Wubber Style
I haven't written about primetime lately and just thought I'd pop in mid year and just dish! PLEASE join in if you watch any other TV besides soaps--ahahahha.
Hoarders on A&E..got more and more gross as the season went on, didn't it? GOOD LAWD!! I couldn't watch those poor chickens last week that were stuck in bins (and I think chickens are pretty stupid) and I couldn't watch the Rat Man this week!! If I want to watch animal hoarders, I'll watch it on The Animal Channel, thank you. :shudder:
Intervention: This show is still powerful but after so many years it's just too predictable. Especially the whole "little kid photo background". What continues to stun me is the fact people who are basically wasted 24-7 can afford to do ANYTHING...but there they are. Sometimes I wish there was a "rehab" place for people who work hard, do the right things..and just need a damn break for awhile. LOL
Teen Mom...Pregnant...After Teen Mom... Done with this. It was novel in the first few seasons, now it just pisses me off. Especially all the mag covers the last crew got for being "teen moms". Whatever... I like the message of showing how hard it is, but wonder if it's getting through. I would LOVE to see them do a Young Mom with tweens -- that's way more sheeze to deal with than infants. I usually want to smack the crap out of the guys in almost every situation too.
Millionaire Matchhmaker: I am starting to think this show is way scripted and a lot of it is totally fake. Especially those weird-o "millionaires" that pop up. "Stacey" taking a lie detector test? Uh..okay. I would have rather have seen Patti deal with her broken engagement than most of the episodes this season.
Modern Family: LOVE...love LOVE. The whole "You're living in a children's house" was hysterical... great writing and tons o' fun
The Middle: Oh, yes. Please. More. Sue Heck? My new fave. Brick? Hilarious. :hilarious:
Celebrity Rehab: Too short...the season moves at lightning speed-- I'm always surprised the depth of celeb's sorrows and lives before 'making it' (Ok, not all are 'celebs' but close enough). Jeremy London was especially interesting to watch.
Tabatha's Salon Take Over: Still love it but it's pretty much the same formula every time. Tabby keeps it fun with her nasty-self though.
I haven't gotten into 'The Good Wife" yet, which I hear is fantastic-- I just have trouble committing to new drama shows since so many are yanked whenever the networks get tired of them.
The Housewives of Atlanta and Beverly Hills-- I can't believe it but I got sick of the Atlanta ladies pretty quickly. I only saw a couple of BH eppies-- I so hate Camille that I could barely stand it. I will be watching the newest one where Kelsey dumped her. Who's jealous now Cammy??! I want the NJ or NYers to come back. I do love me some Bravo Andy aftershows though. He's hilarious.
Biggest Loser-- Same ol' Same ol' even with new trainers. Plus why is it still 2 hours?? zzzzzz.
Jersey Shore-- Since it's back on just a little comment: Sorry, I really find this show hysterical. I don't think it's anything but what it is: kids getting loaded and acting like fools. I also think it's the new model for the sitcom. Those shows are heavily produced -- welcome to the new "Three's Company".
GEESH-- I guess I watch a lot of reality type TV, eh?? The Office and 30 Rock aren't doing it for me anymore, really. I find myself watching ION TV --Ghost Whisperer reruns, some Criminal Minds, Missing People or whatever it's called. I.D. TV with billions of crime stories. I'm excited that Clean House is getting Cosby kid Tempest to host.
I've stopped watching Top Chef--it just got to be too the same for me. I don't think I'll watch Project Runway either.
I do love The Soup, The Dish and Tosh.O--tosh is especially hilarious. Old Seinfeld's?? Awesome!! Still timely and funny even 20 years later. (TWENTY YEARS!!?)
All the good stuff I hear about is on HBO, Showtime...channels I'm too cheap to get. Dang cable robbers. LOL. I really want to start seeing "Episodes" with my ol' friend Joey!!
That's about it. Any suggestions? Don't tell me about SUVs (I do watch some...especially on reruns) or medical stuff. If I see one more ad for "Off The Map" I'm going to puke. Beautiful people roughing it in the jungle. Okay.
