Recap: 'America's Next Top Model' - 'Patricia Field'

It's makeover week for the models, who then get photographed as fallen angels

Anamaria has been sent home, where, one would hope, several cheeseburgers are waiting for her in one big stack. Meantime, we’ve moved on -- already! -- to the makeover show for this cycle. (Scissors. Scissors! Runnnnn!)

Recap: 'Glee' Season 2 Premiere - 'Audition'

It's a new school year, But New Directions quickly encounter some familiar challenges.

Sometimes shows return after the summer hiatus with heavy anticipation due to audience withdrawal. “Glee,” on the other hand, only increased in the public’s overall consciousness. It barreled down the pop culture landscape like The Prince in the videogame “Katamari Damacy,” growing larger and larger as it absorbed an ever-increasing amount of attention in the aftermath of its inaugural season. I wrote last spring that I felt the show was about as critic-proof as they come: well, the introductory meta-commentary that opened Season 2 pretty much validated that. Kurt, playing the part of show creator Ryan Murphy, essentially told me I should make like Lady Gaga and just dance instead of write about the episode. I might not be Boobs McGee (that would be Santana), but I am for the time being Blogger McGee, and writing about this show is all I can do for the time being.

Recap: 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 11 Premiere

The 'star' of the show delivers, but a surprise dark horse emerges, too

Bristol, Bristol, Bristol. “Dancing with the Stars” hasn’t even started yet, and I’m already pretty sick of hearing about the younger, less interesting Palin. This is not about politics, mind you. Regardless of whether you love or hate her mom, if you’ve seen Bristol on television, you know she always looks a little shell shocked, as if she’d like to say “You know, I’m not really a public figure, if you could just get that camera out of my face,” and would gladly hand off her fifteen minutes of fame to any mouth breathing reality TV show idiot in a heartbeat. Which is normal behavior, yes, but makes for pretty awkward TV. And while this show has always played fast and loose with the definition of celebrity (I mean, Audrina Patridge? The friggin’ Situation? Can we have a snuff round of “DWTS”?), isn’t just being the spawn of a well-known person a little faster and looser than necessary? All I’m saying is, if Amy Carter shows up next season, I’m boycotting.

Oh wait, my bad. Bristol isn’t just famous spawn, she’s a “teen activist.” Well, that changes everything, because that’s why people are tuning in – an appetite for teen activism, not the hope of seeing a car wreck of anything. And can I just say Florence Henderson looks shockingly good? How old is that woman, anyway? But it’s time for dancing, so let’s get to it.

Recap: 'Project Runway' - 'A Rough Day on the Runway'

January Jones is the guest judge, but can the designers channel Jackie O?

And then there were nine.

It's quiet in the Atlas apartments as we begin this weeks' episode.  Why?  Because "does she think I'm retarded?" Casanova is gone. Boo (not really, that was one joke that went on way too long ).  Michael talks about last weeks' dramatic moment with Ivy.  She, on the other hand, says, "If I listened to those idiots I wouldn't be here today." Michael C. says Ivy has to use other colors besides green and pink.  Agreed.  Something suggests this week she will.

With Demi Lovato guesting, the models tackle bullying and their own demons

Gee, I wonder if Demi Lovato may be on this episode. Something tells me Demi Lovato may be on this episode. Why do I keep obsessing over the fascinating fact that Demi Lovato may be on this episode? Could it be the eighty billion stories being lobbed at me by a merciless PR machine like a giant potato gun of high fashion propaganda?

Could be. Maybe. Not sure.

Recap: 'Big Brother' 12 Finale - And the winner is...

Will Enzo, Lane or Hayden represent The Brigade in the Winner's Circle?

It's time to wrap up another decent season of "Big Brother." I'm not sure that I'm rooting for any of the three finalists, but that doesn't mean that there haven't been a few fun moments along the way.

OK. Fine. I'll admit it: I'm rooting for Enzo. I'm not enthusiastically rooting for him, but if you figure that The Brigade was the season's dominant force -- and it'd be folly to say otherwise -- how can you not figure that makes The Meow-Meow the season's pivotal player? The problem? As we begin Wednesday's (Sept. 15) finale, Enzo's the only hamster with no chance of winning HoH. Uh-oh.

Recap: 'Survivor' Premiere - 'Young at Heart'

All anybody can do is talk about Jimmy Johnson, but is that a bad thing?
Semi-notable fact: "Survivor" hasn't aired an episode without Russell Hantz since May 17, 2009. Leaving aside whether you loved Russell or hated him, that's a long time in "Survivor"-Land and it seemed worth acknowledging.
Now, on to the premiere of "Survivor: Nicaragua" after the break...
