So, have you missed "The Real Housewives of New York"? I think it was just long enough between seasons for me to shake the crazy squawk of Ramona's voice out of my brain, which makes hearing her again all the more painful. When we eventually get Ramona and Sonja together in a room, as we inevitably do, I have to resist the urge to either mute the television or claw desperately at my ears until I have nothing but bloody, senseless stumps on the side of my face. Luckily, I found the remote.
In the season premiere, we meet new girl Kristen, too
It's time to set your DVRs for season send-offs
April may bring spring showers, but it also brings season finales. NBC has released its season finale slate. Set your DVRs for the season wraps for "Parenthood," "The Blacklist," "Revolution," "Grimm" and more.
Lisa's the target during the season finale, but the joke's on Bravo
So, Bravo must have thought they'd have yet another humdinger of a season finale this year. The setting was perfect (the pool by the Beverly Hilton, which is a lot smaller than it looked on the show). The ladies were all in attendance, most of them with a grudge and tears at the ready. The problem was that everyone's anger was aimed at Lisa (and to a lesser extent her husband Ken) Vanderpump. Guess what? Yeah, didn't work out quite as planned.
It isn't who gets the final rose - the question is, who would want it?
As befits one of the crappiest installments in the 18-season run of "The Bachelor," we got a finale which was amazingly unromantic, endlessly frustrating and chock full of moments that made most of us want to throw something at Juan Pablo. When our host Chris Harrison actually comes right out and says there's going to be a run on televisions next week because so many viewers probably threw stuff at theirs because of this show, you know it's not just you. No, Juan Pablo may make his mark as being the most unappealing Bachelor ever, and if you didn't feel that way before the finale, you probably did afterward.
Jen and Bill are thrilled to have Zoey, but the trip to India won't end well
You probably hoped that a trip to India to adopt a baby sister for Will would have been nothing but fun for Bill and Jen. It's certainly fun for Will, who thinks the nonstop wall of traffic is actually AWESOME. It helps to be a little kid. In this exclusive clip, Will determines that India is the next best thing to Disneyworld (and possibly better) because there are not only cars, but elephants! Just wandering around! It's crazy!
We start drinking before noon to salute a new web series
Is it possible to say we had too much fun with this podcast? Possibly, but that had a lot to do with the return of our favorite guest (and that's saying something), Steve Silverman. The writer-director popped by to introduce us to his friend Ginger Parker, who has a new Web series, "Beverly Pills," debuting Monday, March 10 at beverlypillstheseries.com. But that wasn't all we talked about. And we were drinking. That was our way to salute the series, which is about a spoiled rich girl who starts dealing prescription drugs after she loses her income stream. Yeah, that's why we were drinking.
One episode in, the wheels already seem to be coming off
Just so that we know "Lindsay" (Sundays at 9:00 p.m. on OWN) is not a trashy reality show, somber black-and-white text greets us to set the stage. On July 30, 2013, Lindsay Lohan ended her 90-day stint in rehab. Four days later, she began filming this show. About two minutes after that, she started a deeply sublimated quest to make her handlers, sycophants and slave labor intensely crazy by stirring up drama in the most mundane tasks you can imagine. I half expected to see Lindsay arguing with the coin slots at the laundromat, but we can all assume Linsday does not do her own laundry.
Kordell talks to Peter, and Porsha has some explaining to do
Remember when NeNe Leakes was the Zen goddess of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"? Well, that's over. I realize that, after perching on her high horse for so long, she needs to get back into the mix in an explosive way lest Bravo kick her to the curb where Sheree Whitfield has been sleeping under a cardboard box. We all know what that means -- bring on the shade! And I don't mean a sunhat!
With Neverland behind us, the new storyline could be a return to form
At last the claustrophobic stint "Once Upon A Time" spent in a surprisingly dark and dreary Neverland has finally ended. Aren't you glad that's over (sorry, Peter Pan)? The show returns tonight (Sun. March 9 at 8:00 p.m. on ABC) with a new story, a new villain and some lingering questions that should be twisty enough to fuel the last eight episodes of the season. But is that enough to bring back viewers?
A lab technician is in intense pain when acid is thrown in his face
Discovery Fit & Health has a new TV series with an Aussie flair -- "Sydney ER," a reality show that debuts tonight (Fri. March 7 at 9:00 p.m. ET) with a double episode premiere. In the first episode, a 19-year-old hip hop star is stabbed in the heart outside of a night club. In the second? A guy is doused with acid. In the face. Don't watch this clip before eating. FYI, this is not a re-enactment.
