Well, if all the dog killing and gay bashing in Sochi hasn't dimmed your enthusiasm for alpine skiing, good news! NBC has tons of programming. Even better, this year's Winter Olympics promises to be far more dangerous than usual thanks to slipshod construction and the awkwardness of double toilets. Yay!
You wouldn't think a bad guy from "Breaking Bad" would be a ton of fun to interview, but guess what? Jonathan Banks is more fun than a barrel of monkeys on meth. Well, that might not be all that fun. Might be kind of crazy and violent. But he's really fun. Promise.
We knew it was only a matter of time before someone figured out "Elena" wasn't really herself. The only surprise was that it wasn't Katherine herself who gave away her true identity. Watching her roll her eyes, flirt mercilessly with Stefan, and wing her way through conversations she doesn't entirely understand, it's been hard to believe that Elena's nearest and dearest aren't whispering about how "off" their friend seems.
How much did you love "Sex Sent Me to the ER" on TLC? If the answer to that question is "a whole lot," you're not alone in your adoration. TLC's four episode run of the series averaged 1.9 million viewers. Not surprisingly, TLC is looking to serve up many more tales of sexual misadventure, as the show has now been picked up for an additional 35 one-hour episodes. Best of all? If you have a horror story to share, you just might get your chance.
Reality TV producers have finally discovered that they don't really need the lure of a million dollars to make people do terrifying things. No, for some intrepid adrenaline junkies, bragging rights are more than enough. With that in mind, Nat Geo has announced a casting call for the new season of "Ultimate Survival Alaska." Only people who like being really, really cold apply!
Sure, it seems a little sketchy from the outside. Ventriloquist and "America's Got Talent" winner Terry Fator got a divorce from his first wife, then married a knockout who was 23-years-younger than he shortly thereafter. But in the latest episode of "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" (airing Fri. Feb. 7 at 9:00 p.m. ET on OWN), Fator explains that appearances can be deceiving.
Discovery Channel has yet another attempt to capture a gruesome daredevil death coming to a TV near you! This May, Joby Ogwyn will attempt the first wing suit flight off the summit of Mount Everest in "Everest Jump Live." The, yes, live broadcast will air this May.
Missing "Naked and Afraid"? Then good news -- the series will be back and baring all yet again on Sun., March 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Even better, the show now has a companion program running immediately afterward -- "Discovery After Dark" (w/t) -- which will host the survivalists from "Naked and Afraid," probably in clothing. But that's just a guess. "Discovery After Dark" premieres at 10:15 p.m. ET
In this week's episode of TLC's "Hoarding: Buried Alive," (Wed. Feb. 5 at 9:00 p.m. ET), we meet Geoffrey. Geoffrey has problems. A lot of bicycles, but problems. The single father of two is a compulsive hoarder who sold the family home of 46 years when the bank threatened foreclosure.
It's been a while since Melinda and I have done a podcast, but we're back and (if you can get past the remnants of my cold) had a chance to talk to Scheana from "Vanderpump Rules." Even if Stassi and Kristen give her a hard time, we found her to be lots of fun, a dry wit and she even gave us some hints about what we can expect on the season finale tonight ("Vanderpump Rules" airs Mon. at 9:00 p.m. ET on Bravo). In short -- expect the unexpected, and there are even more changes in store on the reunion show. Those crazy kids!
