It's the first "real" week of competition, and the good news? We get a twist! You don't get to season ten without trying to mix things up a bit, and "Top Chef" is no different than any other reality TV series. Luckily, no one dances, there will not be ice skating (I don't think) and there will not be a McDonald's fry cook challenge (I hope). Maybe next season.
The show adds an unexpected twist featuring familiar faces
Sister Jude may have finally met her match
If there was any doubt, 1964 (especially at Briarcliff) was not the year of the woman. I'm not sure if this show is an impassioned indictment of how women were disempowered decades ago or just an excuse for mutilating some of them on screen, but the truth is that this episode was probably a rough one for anyone -- male or female -- to watch.
The stars come out to support Seaside Heights, New Jersey
Snooki and J-Woww aren't the only ones to get a spin-off
"Jersey Shore" may be in its final season and most of the actual location has been washed away by Superstorm Sandy, but we're not getting rid of the guidos and guidettes quite that easily. MTV today announced that the network has given the greenlight to hybrid talk show/reality series “The Show With Vinny” hosted by cast member Vinny Guadagnino.
Ne-Yo and Kylie Minogue perform but that's not the shocker
Tonight, not one but two couples will be going home. Is this sad? A little. Is it necessary? Of course! So, let's rip off the Band-Aid, Tom Bergeron, and get on with it. Of course, because this is about five minutes worth of show, there will be performances (Kylie Minogue, Ne-Yo) and there will be clip montages and there will be celebrities under lights, sweating. Oh, and there will also be a dance featuring actual professional dancers. Craziness!
The Roloffs say staying married means 'not liking each other sometimes'
After six seasons of "Little People, Big World," Matt and Amy Roloff seemingly rode into the syndication sunset in 2010, happy to work on their massive farm near Portland, Oregon and watch their four kids flutter out of the nest. But TLC has announced that the Roloffs are returning to the series grind with "Little People Big World: Wedding Farm" (premiering Tues. Nov. 13 at 9:00 p.m.), a six-episode series following the couple's decision to get into the wedding industry. Amy talked to HitFix about why she and Matt took on yet another endeavor, how they've managed to stay married for 25 years, and why she refuses to renew her vows on TV, even though they have the perfect venue right in their own backyard.
They may be ready for the end, but they're not as crazy as you think
Are you prepared for the end of the world? No? Well, most people aren't -- unless they're preppers. To kick off the second season of the NatGeo show "Doomsday Preppers" (Tues. Nov. 13, 9:00 p.m. ET), I sat down with some preppers -- Jay and Holly Blevins, Braxton and Kara Southwick and professional prepper (and show advisor) Scott Hunt -- to find out what keeps them up at night (not as much as you'd think). "There are a lot of grasshoppers jumping around, tweeting, Facebooking, all sorts of things, and the ants are planning, storing and doing just fine," Hunt explained. Here are ten things you may not have known about some seemingly normal families who just may have a lot more dehydrated stew in their possession than you do.
Adrienne and Lisa still can't play nice - even at a kiddie birthday party
This week, we don't see much of new housewife Yolanda, but no matter. What we do see is enough to convince me that she's going to be a force for crazy for the rest of the season. Really, even if the rest of the wives dove head first into talk therapy to emerge as sweet and bland as packets of single serve artificially flavored apple cinnamon oatmeal, we'd still be plenty amused watching Yolanda spin around in circles trying to rationalize her inescapable nuttiness. But, as we know, the other housewives are just as catty and ridiculous as ever, so unleash the crazy!
It's time for trio dancing, which brings one
Only two weeks left! And so many celebrities left! It's madness, I tell you, madness! But there will be a double elimination tomorrow. Tonight, we get dancing. Most significantly, we get dance trios. One celeb, two professionals to prop up him or her. This does not seem like a great idea to me, as a waltz or a samba sort of lends itself to two people, not three. But I guess the desperate need for challenges on "DWTS" this season requires wacky stuff like this.
Kenya and Cynthia butt heads, but NeNe is above it all
As we all know, Kenya is the latest crazymaker on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and with NeNe prancing around bragging about her evolution from screamy mean girl to evolved and mature woman (let’s say it all together: yeah, right), we need a fresh dose of bitchy to keep this show afloat. If everyone starts behaving themselves, it’s going to be about as much fun as watching cute cat videos without the cats.
