Tonight's Episode: "Those Summer Nights"

Summer is fast approaching. For me, Summer is a lot like Winter. I stay in the house, and don't want to go outside because I'm not impressed by the temperature. However, a downfall to Summer compared to Winter is the lack of quality TV programming. Occasionally, there were Summers where I was pleased with the programming....but this Summer looks pretty bleak. I'll get to watch Big Brother (one of my biggest obsessions) but that's only on three days a week. What the hell am I supposed to do the other four days?! And the other 23 hours that Big Brother isn't on? Last year they had that one show on ABC...I think it was called True Beauty. I loved that show, because it was so horrible. At the end of every episode when Carson Kressley would tell someone that they aren't the "true beauty" the lights would dim, dramatic music would play, AND THEY WOULD PREPARE FOR THE HUGE REVEAL OF...Vanessa Minnillo. She was there to tell the contestants that they weren't being judged by what's on the outside, because it's what's on the inside that matters. None of the contestants ever gave a shit. She always looked slightly disappointed. I loved it. Sometimes I would fast forward through the whole show just for that part.

Then the year before that NBC had "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!" where such stars as Lou Diamond Phillips, and Sanjaya (of American Idol fame), were stranded on an island, and forced to compete in really disgusting challenges. That show mostly sucked...a lot. I still really enjoyed watching it though. I think it might have been because of how much I hate Spencer Pratt. I never even watched "The Hills" or anything, but for a while there it was impossible to avoid seeing his face everywhere I looked. Yep...I'm a freak. I like getting pissed off at people that are on the TV. I can't stand Elisabeth Hasselbeck or Barbara Walters, yet I watch "The View" every day. Oh me.

It just sucks that there's nothing on right now to tide me over until Big Brother. My life is so rough. I taped that new Paris Hilton show last night. I might give that a try. And I still haven't watched "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding." That looks like it might be horrible enough to be fun. I don't know what else I'm supposed to do. Go outside and actually live my own life? Gross.


  1. I know just what you mean, I've already taken to watching things I've never heard of on netflix. Most of them suck, but I did finally start Glee which was much more fun than I expected.

    You could always read a lot :)

  2. you got direct tv or some other satelite or cable service? last year they had a channel in the middle of the night that would play big brother cam... all the stuff you don't see on the show; you could watch BB all night LONG!

  3. That's true, Eric. There's always BBAD on Shotime. And maybe we can the 24-hour Big Brother live feed from this year. That would be fun for you. Except then you'd never do any work again. Ever.

  4. Do you not watch the f-ery that is True Blood? Love that show, although Sookie & Bill get on my nerves. I watch some BRAVO too like Flipping Out (Jeff Lewis!) There are a couple of shows on Syfy I'm going to try, and if you are a ThunderCats fan, they are bringing it back in July. :) That last one may not be your cup of tea, but I've never lost that "Ho!" feelin'.
