MUST WATCH TV

I have a new love. It's NOT my DVR, although, we WERE brought together BECAUSE of my DVR (which FYI- my DVR is called MOXI and it's through my cable and it records my shows and that's great and fine , but as I understand it, it's not as smart or capable as TIVO, but bygones. However EVERY FLIPPING TIME I press a button on this new system, it has this obnoxious click- and it's loud! I will be willing to do questionable things in exchange for anyone telling me how to get rid of that click!)

My new love is Tuesday night television. The DVR has allowed me to watch 5 straight hours of mostly unadulterated and commercial free TV in a row when I get home from my night of bullshit, I mean practices!

AMERICAN IDOL

As you may know, I am a big American Idol fan- I've always watched it- so that's a given!

I know that Adam is a love him or hate him kind of guy- I hate him- however- from the second I saw him- I insisted I would hate him less if he sprung out some flaming Zeppelin like he did last night- so - there you go- I hate him less. I think he's talented, but should be on a theater stage. Doing jazz hands. Very gay jazz hands. I've grown to love Kris in completely inappropriate ways as he is married and too young for me, but damn! I don't remember him being so cute when this show started! Danny- yeh- he can sing- his wife died- boo hoo- I'm over it- send him home! And finally, Allison- MY FAV- has always been. I get goose bumps and have been made fun of on occasion for shedding tears when she sings!

THE BIGGEST LOSER

Who couldn't like this show?? It's so damned inspiring-I can't tell you how much guilt I've had for eating ice cream during this and swearing to work my ass off in the gym the next day- doesn't always happen, but I have really good intentions and I owe it all to this show! I've also watched this since it started and saw a rerun of the first season recently and it was pretty lame back then- now those fat asses kick ass and take names!

I hate "the game"! I like to see the people change their lives and when a fat person gets sent home because of the game- it REALLY pisses me off! Take Kristen- she was doing so well and I wanted her to stay because she still had a long way to go, but backstabber man boob king, Ron played "the game"! URRG!!! Tara is a machine. There's no two ways around it! Do I like her- no! I must admit I appreciate how many times they have to bleep her Long Island profanity, but she just urks me. But I have to give her her props and if she wins- she totally deserves it! AND Jillian calling her "TAURA" makes me CRAZY! Helen, again, good for you, you're 48 and now you're skinny, but BITCH... you sent your fat daughter home so you could get a tight ass? That's fucked up- how you got this far- I will never know- YOU MAY NOT WIN- I SAY SO! Finally, Mike, I love you and I was amazed at how you became "HAWT" to me in an illegal, cougar prey sort of way after your makeover- who knew that was underneath there? I can't wait to see you all buff and tan for the finale and I'm totally pulling for you, dude!

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK

I know there are a lot of sites that talk about this, so I'll keep it short. I still love Bethenny. I don't think it's a coincidence that Kelly could be a man's name- he's a bitch! I can take or leave Jill, Luann, and Ramona- sometimes they rub me the wrong way, but sometimes I enjoy them! BUT SWEET BABY JESUS- why oh why have I grown to like Simon and Alex this season- please tell me it's not just me??!!

CUPID

Oh man- if you have not caught this show- YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT! It's so cute! I have a goofy perm-a-grin smile the whole time I watch it. Bobby Cannivale is great in it and so fun to watch!

I actually watch Law and Order:SVU and Without a Trace, on Tuesday.

I also LOVE Bethenney. She's my favorite housewife!

amelia bedelia said...

me and the couch are good friends on tuesday night, too!!

Sonny and Bryan said...

i actually do believe you are the only one who likes alex and simon. haha I like Bethenney also, have you got a chance to check out the real housewives of new jersey yet?

I have a love affair with my DVR as well. Biggest Loser is one of my favorite shows! I, too, have watched it from the beginning and agree that the seasons have gotten better and better. And I also feel like a piece of dog shit when I'm eating Taco Bell and watching this show...I also swear myself to a workout regimen both during and after the show. Totally cracked me up when you referred to Ron as the "backstabber man boob king." We also refer to him as the curtain man. He has the most interesting body I think I've ever seen. I like Tara...she does get on my nerves but damn that girl is a competitor...my husband HATES her. I was sad Kristen went home..she definitely needed the support of the ranch longer than anyone else and the fact that Ron is still trying to be all noble because he didn't "technically" vote for her really pisses me off. I am excited about next week...hopefully, America will choose Mike over Ron but then again Ed told the country to pick Heba and they didn't...which by the way I found hilarious considering Heba drove me nuts,I didn't hate Heba quite like I hated Vickie(mainly because she was only about the "game")but that's another story.

I can only comment on Idol. The other shows I do not watch...although I have caught Housewives from time to time and it's definitely suckinable.

Adam? I'm growing to love him because he loves Allison and I love Allison and Allison seems to love him....so it's all good. Love all around.

Chris? Bugging the crap out of me with his baby face wispy hair mustache thing. It totally heebies me out that hair under his nose and above his lip. eewwww.

Danny? That scream ending Dream On was worth every second I have wasted watching this season. Keep him and let him scream like that every single week I laughed so friggin' hard....and was even laughing this morning when I woke up...

Allison? Love her and want her and Adam in the finale. My two LA peeps....and lovin' their duet action.

Now...did you really ask for my AI rundown? Cause I just gave it to you. Sorry.

:-)

I love Bobby Cannavale too! But I don't watch any of the same shows as you on Tues. I watch The Mentalist and Without a Trace. Unless I find myself watching the insides of my eyelids first.

Under the Influence said...

I've watched a few reruns of RHNYC and I like Bethenny, but I wonder how you get to be a Real Housewife when you aren't even a wife? What's up with that?

wakefield said...

I watch them all, except cupid. I love housewives and I never hated Simon and Alex and I do like them even more this year. So Alex posed nude, who hasn't? You should definitely check out their blog. Simon blogs after every episode and picks it apart. Excellent perspective. Kelly is the most horrifying character ever to be added to any reality program and I cant get enough of her. Watching her and Betheny go at it is awesome.

Biggest loser is always good but I tend to fast forward through a lot of the crap. I think I'm already sold on Jennie O and Extra sugar free gum. I cannot believe they made them run a marathon. And every time they show Mike's family and poor Max who got left behind, I get teary. If they dont invite him to the next season I will be pissed. I could talk reality tv all day. Love It

you know - I grew up without a TV {I KNOW so un american 1970s but first it died and we couldn't afford a new one - right in the middle of Yogi Bear - and then my parents got into the whole "its a lifestyle" thing} and it is the LAST thing I turn to for entertainment... but you are pretty convincing... I may have to take a peek next week...

Annie said...

Well, I only watch the Housewives and I like Bethenny & Jill and am learning to like Alex and Simon as well. My sorority sister and Alex were classmates and still keep in touch. She claims Alex is a really solid person and very nice.

Paige said...

I love Bethenny and I kinda like LuAnn. I like Alex better now that I know she was nekkid--and man, does she have a body. But mother of God, Simon hurts my eyes--that get up he wore last nite, with those goofy red plastic-y pants--oy.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

never seen any of those shows and that is perhaps the ONE night that I don't DVR anything!

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

I love nights like that where you can just watch all your fave shows and veg. I don't care what anyone says...vegging is completely necessary to remain sane.

Christy said...

I freakin' LOVE the biggest loser! And I'm not ashamed to admit it either! And have no worries my friend, because you are not alone in your binge eating and empty promises to hit the gym the next day while watching (with me it's usually popcorn that I'm sucking down--the real kind w/butter.)

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

I love Biggest Loser too! And I eat ice cream while watching it!

Em said...

Sorry, I don't watch any of it. I have Watched Biggest Loser, and you're so right, that show will motivate you like no other.

My Tuesday night belongs to "Deadliest Catch." I'm a Discovery geek, what can I say?
