Recap: Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Finale, Part 2

Recap: Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Finale, Part 2

Tonight’s season finale kicked off with Dancing with the Stars: Road to the Finals a one hour special that chronicled the journey of the three remaining couples. The highlight of the hour showed fun facts about the season like “#dwts fun fact … Alfonso is an avid race car driver.” And “#dwts fun fact… Janel has 17 tattoos.” But other than that, the hour was basically a rehashing of many of the production packages that were shown earlier in the season and remembering “The Journey.” It was basically an hour of wasted time that probably made East Coast parents curse … Continue reading

How legit is ‘The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns?‘ Former nun gives her review

The Sisterhood Lifetime

Trolling Facebook a few months ago, one of my friends — a religious sister— posted the news release for Lifetime’s new ‘docuseries,’ The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns. I laughed out loud! The title alone is saturated with incorrect stereotypes and inaccuracies, so naturally, I had to go immediately and see if there was a trailer— and indeed there was. Still, I vowed not to even watch the series (while trying to remember if any of my streaming subscriptions even had Lifetime), chalking it up to another mind-poisoning hour of un-reality television that informs society the “truths” of today. With irritation and … Continue reading

For real? Man gets eaten by snake in Discovery’s new “Eaten Alive”

Man gets eaten by snake in Discovery's Eaten Alive on Dec 7

Say what? Let me rewind that promo trailer I just saw (which millions of others also saw during Nick Wallenda’s Chicago skyline walk) in which a man gets eaten by a snake in Discovery Channel’s new Eaten Alive airing on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 9pm ET/PT. How is that possible? The idea of a human willing to be consumed by a 20-foot-plus anaconda in an attempt to gain more knowledge on the majestic creatures sounds downright crazy. I mean, couldn’t we just study them from afar? When you talk with Discovery’s executive producer Mike Sorensen, who is behind the two-hour … Continue reading

A&E tries to cash in with “Country Buck$”

Country Buck$

So how many reality shows about country folk who run multimillion-dollar outdoor sporting goods companies can fit on one TV network.

They also run a sportsman fantasy camp on more than 50,000 acres in Louisiana that also serves as a testing ground for their sporting-goods products in development, the more interesting of which … Continue reading

Preview: Dancing With the Stars “Plugged/Unplugged” Night

"Plugged/Unplugged" night

  Last week we had to bid a fond adieu to Lea Thompson and her ageless legs. She was so much fun to watch and I will really miss watching her and Artem’s on-camera friendship.
