The entire U.S. can now watch American Idol live, a first and another great change

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 14:16:48 +0000

American Idol is in its final month, and after unveiling its top 10 contestants tonight, will switch to a live format for the next three Sundays—eliminating contestants live after they perform. Those live results are possible because the show will air live in all four U.S. time zones and thus both coasts, starting at 8 p.m. ET on the east coast and 5 p.m. PT on the west coast. ABC said in its announcement that... keep reading this story »(image) Jurnee performs on American Idol season 16's top 14 episode. (Photo by Eric McCandless/ABC)

RHOBH reunion, Barbie documentary, and 6 other unscripted TV premieres this week

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 12:45:00 +0000

While there are many reality shows airing right now, it's a relatively quiet week for unscripted premieres. Two cable series, Rustic Rehab (HGTV, Thursdays at 11) and Ancient Aliens (History, Fridays at 9), return for new seasons. There's a new game show, My Partner Knows Best (Lifetime, Wednesdays at 10), that gives couples "hilarious challenges based on real-life relationship obstacle." It's hosted by actors and married couple Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen.  At the same time as the Married... keep reading this story »(image) Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Erika Girardi, Camille Grammer, Lisa Rinna, and Lisa Vanderpump.

The 100 contestants for the next Great American reality competition

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 00:17:26 +0000

The 100 contestants for the next big reality competition have been announced, and they include Rebecca, Don Quixote, Jane Eyre, Harry Potter, Charlotte's Web, Jurassic Park, The Handmaid's Tale, and Flowers in the Attic. Yes, these are all books, and they are the finalists in The Great American Read, which kicks off on PBS May 22. Viewers will vote to choose "America's Best-Loved Novel," which will be announced during an October finale. Over the summer, PBS says there... keep reading this story »(image) Margaret Atwood with her novel The Handmaid's Tale. (Photo via Nutopia/PBS)

Which season of Great British Bake-Off are you watching in the U.S.? A guide.

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 00:13:36 +0000

When PBS brought The Great British Bake-Off to the United States, giving Americans the chance to watch this amazing show free and legally, it also renamed the series, renumbered its seasons, and aired those seasons out of order. It's wonderful that we now have The Great British Baking Show, but the result is definitely confusing: Great British Bake-Off season three airs on PBS this summer, but Netflix is already streaming a Great British Baking Show season... keep reading this story »(image)

On Survivor, a classic challenge and ‘a common, easy vote’ make their return

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 02:30:20 +0000

The challenges were the highlight of Survivor Ghost Island episode nine, and that included the return of the food challenge. Oh, classic Survivor elements, how I've missed you. Tangent: Maybe it's time to bring the Survivor auction, which we haven't seen since season 30, out of retirement, perhaps with new twists to keep everyone from just hoarding their cash? After years of Fear Factor taking that kind of challenge to the extreme—so extreme that one... keep reading this story »(image) Wendell Holland and Michael Yerger on Survivor Ghost Island.

CBS renews Survivor and The Amazing Race

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 18:41:44 +0000

CBS renewed Survivor and The Amazing Race for seasons that will air during the 2018-2019 television season. Those are the only two reality shows on CBS' list of 17 shows total. (Big Brother was previously renewed for two seasons, including the season that will air this summer.) The announcement did not specify the number of seasons that TAR and Survivor will each get. However, Survivor is currently a top-10 show, and is still the most-watched... keep reading this story »(image) Jeff Probst during Survivor Ghost Island episode 9. (Image by CBS Entertainment)

When The Great British Baking Show is returning to PBS, and which UK season will air

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 20:31:29 +0000

The Great British Baking Show is back on PBS this summer, and has a debut date of June 22. It will air Fridays at 9 through Aug. 17. This will be season five of the show for PBS, but which UK season is it? I asked PBS, and learned that it's season three, which first aired in 2012. That means it features the original cast: Judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, and hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.... keep reading this story »(image) The Great British Baking Show's judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, with hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc.

Iron Chef America is returning to its original format

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 12:45:07 +0000

Food Network is returning Iron Chef America to the original Iron Chef format when the show returns this May. Alton Brown will be back in his usual role. This will effectively be the third version of Iron Chef to air in the past year. Food Network announced in late 2016 that it would air "a reimagined reboot of Iron Chef America"—and that show, Iron Chef Gauntlet, was not Iron Chef, but ended up being a very... keep reading this story »(image) Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli competes on Iron Chef America (Photo by Todd Plitt/Food Network)

A few thoughts about Trading Spaces’ “Carpenters Strike Back” episode, the one with fire jokes

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 18:52:53 +0000

The second episode of the new Trading Spaces elevated two of the show's carpenters to designers, and while the end result was decent, as an episode, it wasn't as smooth. There were more scenes that felt staged and forced—nothing new for Trading Spaces, but something that still just doesn't work. Something else that doesn't work: jokes about wildfires threatening homes. First, the rooms: Of the four rooms we've seen so far, I'd rank Ty's as easily... keep reading this story »(image) Ty Pennington talks to Paige Davis about his first room design on Trading Spaces.

Drag Race and Challenge spin-offs; Bill Nye, after the Science Guy; and more reality TV this week

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 12:55:23 +0000

Good Monday morning! Here are reality shows and documentaries making their debuts—or returns—this week. The third season of MTV's Challenge spin off The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars (MTV, Tuesdays at 10) will tweak the formula by mixing teams of celebrities—including Drake Bell, Brooke Hogan, and Big Brother's Jozea Flores—and returning MTV cast members. Logo TV—remember that?—is launching a spin-off of RuPaul's Drag Race on its web site starting tomorrow. Out of the Closet (, Tuesday), goes into the... keep reading this story »(image) Bill Nye in Greenland in the new PBS documentary Bill Nye: Science Guy.
