Both Drag Race All Stars and Top Chef Colorado have been uncharacteristically underwhelming

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 16:27:19 +0000

"We all are at the top," Kennedy said during last night's RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars. But: are they? Sure, Kennedy is, BenDeLaCreme is. The others are capable of being at the top, but haven't quite shown it, at least not consistently. Last night's Drag Race was the kind of episode that makes me worry about an entire season of 90-minute episodes plus Untucked next season. What would the editors have done to stretch last night's episode... keep reading this story »(image) Joe Flamm and Carrie Baird during a Top Chef Colorado quickfire challenge in Telluride.(Photo by Paul Trantow/Bravo)

Amazing Race 30 concludes, having extended Big Brother’s storyline

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 14:49:37 +0000

The 30th season of The Amazing Race has concluded, and the winners of $1 million are the couple who met on Big Brother, Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson. Yale debate team Henry Zhang and Evan Lynyak placed second, with skiers Kristi Leskinen and Jen Hudak in third place. IndyCar drivers Alex Rossi and Conor Daly were eliminated at the end of the penultimate leg. As an Amazing Race team and couple, Cody and Jessica appeared to be strong and functional—but their... keep reading this story »(image) Big Brother contestants Cody and Jessica with fellow racer Kristi on the Feb. 7 episode of The Amazing Race 30.

A&E’s has turned reality into successful TV. But it should stop playing dumb.

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 13:50:45 +0000

At TCA in early January, A&E executive Elaine Frontain Bryant said the network was "leading the reality revolution" in an era of too-much scripted television. "There’s enough fiction and drama in the world," she added. This is the kind of thing that would normally have me standing on the table, screaming, Yes! yes! But instead my reaction was more like, mmmgah ugh no. The network's decision to switch to nonfiction-only programming resulted, she said, in "an incredible... keep reading this story »(image) Dan Abrams, host of one of A&E's success stories, Live PD.

“an obstacle course meets dodgeball”: Mark Burnett’s second CBS summer competition series

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 01:00:16 +0000

Less than two weeks ago, CBS picked up a new Mark Burnett-produced summer competition series that sounds a lot like America's Got Talent, and now CBS has ordered a second series that sounds a lot like one of the games on another NBC show, Ellen's Game of Games. The show is called TKO, and Mark Burnett describes it as "an obstacle course meets dodgeball" that "will create amazing viral moments." 10 episodes will air this summer. CBS'... keep reading this story »(image)

Introducing reality blurred’s new comment and community system

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 14:59:51 +0000

While some publications have abandoned comments or kicked conversations over to social media, I've always been thrilled with the conversations we've had here—and that goes back to even before I had comments! Whether we're celebrating a show we all love or challenging each other to think differently about something, it's wonderful to talk and connect. Thus, it pained me to move to Facebook-only comments last year. But that's changing starting right now. As you'll see... keep reading this story »(image)

Shark Tank’s Daymond John turned his philosophy into a book

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:50:00 +0000

If you follow Shark Tank star and FUBU founder Daymond John on Twitter, you'll be familiar with his early-morning posts that always have the same three words: "Rise and Grind." I always find those posts both inspiring and a little insufferable—especially because at 6:45 a.m., I often don't feel like doing half of that. Of course, I know he's right; it's a reminder that success takes work, and lots of it. On Jan. 23, Daymond's philosophy... keep reading this story »(image) Rise and Grind author and Shark Tank star Daymond John (Photo by Patrick Harbron/ABC)

Happy 50th anniversary, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 18:21:24 +0000

Feb. 19, 1968 was the first U.S. broadcast of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, the show that was there for generations of kids. Mister Rogers helped us understand everything from how crayons were made to why we are okay just the way we are. Fred Rogers' series, on which he talked directly to children through the camera, actually originated five years before 1968, as a show that first aired on CBC. Today, it's been off the air... keep reading this story »(image) Fred Rogers on his show Mister Rogers Neighborhood, which debuted 50 years ago today. (Photo by PBS)

Fear Factor returns; Amazing Race, Bachelor conclude; and more reality TV this week

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 13:45:53 +0000

The Amazing Race (CBS, Wednesday at 9) and The Bachelor Winter Games (ABC, Tuesday and Thursday at 8) both end their seasons this week, though half of The Bachelor Winter Games airs this week, since it's just a special four-episode event. The Bachelor will end with a three-hour finale that includes a one-hour "World Tells All" reunion. Returning this week is Fear Factor (MTV, Feb. 25, Sundays at 7), which is dropping its focus on millennials and instead becoming... keep reading this story »(image) Ludacris introducing a stunt on MTV's first season of Fear Factor.

Why Shark Tank changed its sharks’ seats and set

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 01:30:00 +0000

The ninth season of Shark Tank started airing in October, and is already approaching its final episodes, ending its its season early thanks to American Idol arriving on ABC's Sunday nights in March. Besides its modified schedule and the addition of five new guest sharks, the major change for Shark Tank season was both visual and functional: a new set and new seating arrangements for the six permanent sharks. I like both changes a lot: the show feels refreshed in... keep reading this story »(image) Mark Cuban wraps something around Kevin O'Leary's face during episode 21 of Shark Tank season 9.

So You Think You Can Dance will be back for season 15—but without all-stars?

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 19:42:26 +0000

Fox has renewed So You Think You Can Dance for a 15th season, once again escaping cancellation after being on the bubble. While the show will bring back the same judging panel as last season (Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, and Vanessa Hudgens) and host Cat Deeley, the all-stars don't appear to be returning, at least not as a central part of the competition. Last year's renewal announcement mentioned that the top 10 would "be paired up with... keep reading this story »(image) So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley, left, with season 14 winner Lex Ishimoto and runner-up Koine Iwasaki (Photo by Adam Rose/FOX)
