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.
