Let's talk TV

When I watch a show, I watch it religiously.

Until 9:30.

Then it's bedtime.

But until 9:30, I am totally into it. We are currently watching American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, and The Amazing Race. We will sprinkle in a little House, Bones, Anthony Bordain, and any of the 26 logger shows that seem to be on these days.

Let's talk American Idol.

I love Alexis, Danny, and Allison. I can't stand Megan. The rest? Eh.

Dancing with the Stars.

Every year there are more and more serious injuries. Jewel and Nancy were out before the show even started. And now Steve-O? I think they might have trouble getting celebrities for the show next year at this rate.

I love Shawn Johnson, the Bachelor chic, and Gilles. And seriously could Julianne and her boyfriend be more beautiful?! They are so blindingly gorgeous it's a bit hard to watch. Well, my husband doesn't have any trouble watching her. But still.

And lest we forget about him...

Moving on...

Amazing Race.

This is our first year watching this show and I am hooked. Initially, I liked the lawyer siblings. But after the episode when he got them lost and got all drama queen...I can't stand them. They are conniving, uber-annoying, and a little too "close" for my liking.

Margie and Luke are funny although I wasn't impressed when they U-turned the couple. Not cool. I think the stunt guys would do well if they had a couple extra brain cells to rub together. Not the sharpest tools in the shed.

I think my favorite couple (yes, I know they are father/son but aren't they still a couple? As in a couple of guys? A couple of people on the show? I didn't mean to imply they were a romantic couple) is the ambiguously gay duo, Mike and Mel. I am loving them... complete with Mel's ever-present groin injury. And is it me or did Mike play Ned in School of Rock. It's him, right?!
So that's pretty much how I spend my evenings. What are you watching? Who's your pick to win these shows? What did you think of Adam's rendition of Ring of Fire?

Pin It!

Ring of Fire...not so much. I love Danny, I think he is amazing!

I think Shawn Johnson is very good, but a little too gymnasty, lol. I also like Melissa.

Haven't been watching The Amazing Race this time.

Martha said...

I've watched some Dancing with the Stars. My guilty TV pleasures are Bridezillas and The Real Housewives of O.C.
Also, love Ace of Cakes and anything Food Network. Anthony Bourdain Rocks!! Or can we call him, "Tony"?

Merrie said...

I don't happen to watch any of these, but if I had to pick one, I think I'd love Amazing Race. My mom and I laugh about how you can only commit yourself to so many shows!!

I'm a big fan of
Desp Housewives
Brothers & Sisters

And for comedy I take
The Office
Big Bang Theory
30 Rock

Aren't you excited that you asked?? lol

Rebecca said...

I love Amazing Race. I watch it every year! I think the gay guys you are referred to are father/son.

I love the same DWTS people you do!

Love your review!

Smoochiefrog said...

Yes, that is the roommate from School of Rock. He was also the producer I believe.

I like Danny, Alexis, Lil, and Adam from AI. Adam sucked last night though.

I don't watch DWTS b/c it's opposite 24. I WON'T miss 24, and I'm taping something else at the same time.

Teri said...

I spend my evenings watching Clean House on Style Network. I can't seem to get enough of it. Also, I'm into those shows about the outrageously expensive weddings, the Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, and whatever I flip to until I can fall asleep.

Sunday~Big Love


Tuesday~Biggest Loser

we are also going thru the six feet under series right now (yes I bought all 5 seasons, and yes we have already seen them!) on DVD, cause we FREAKIN love that show.

amelia bedelia said...

Big AI fan here....hating that Alexis got the boot!

Delberta said...

Reruns of NCIS, then House. Pretty much it. lol

Finding Normal said...

Let's see. Not watching AI, will watch a tiny bit of DWTS but not committing to it--too much!
I do watch AR. Don't have a favorite this year, although I enjoy Margie and Luke the most.
Watch any of the Real Housewives, High School Reunion, The Office, 90210 (if they'd ever show a new one), and anything on Food Network. :)

Susan said...

Big TV Junkie here too except we don't watch any of the reality shows. Too many and on way too much. And everything we watch, we DVR first so we can watch when we want to. Gotta love DVR!!!

Sarah said...

Love AR! I don't know who my favorite is yet, but I kinda like the mother and her deaf son. I'm so bad at remembering their names!

I also watch AI, but I haven't seen this weeks yet.

One Crazy Chick! said...

I suck. The only show that has my attention at the moment is Lost. It consumes me :)

Z's Mom said...

I love all 3 of those shows...but I've only been able to watch DWTS closely this year. Yeah, beautiful couples irritate me...see, I'm stuck back on your previous post. ;)

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I'm watching all those.. .well... amazing race off and on.. and then add hell's kitchen, Next Top Model, Make me a Super Model, and... whatever else I can find... no wonder I haven't been blogging much!!!

Gina said...

I have watched The Amazing Race every season and I love it...the gay couple that you have pictured may be gay but they are not a "couple" they are father and son. :0

Susie said...

I think you mean the UNambiguously gay duo.

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...
