The New Season Of Big Brother Premieres Wednesday

Big Brother

Big Brother is my summer guilty pleasure, and it’s back for another season starting this Wednesday. That’s right, we get a house full of new strangers vying for that half million dollar prize, and they’re willing to sell their dignity to get it!

Last year’s cast was absolutely shocking, with racism running strong inside the house, which ultimately led to people losing their jobs when they got back in the “real” world.

Will this season’s cast be more conscious of the cameras and watch what they say after what happened last year? I guess we’ll see soon enough..

Yes, I probably have better things to do with the 3 hours a week I’m wasting on this show, but I cant help it. 🙂

Fashion Star Clothes Not Available In Stores?

Fashion-Star

I’ve been watching NBC’s Fashion Star since the beginning, and I was thrilled when it got renewed for another season. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it’s a reality show that pits designers against each other in an attempt to get bought by Macys, Saks, and Express.

Winning designs from each episode can be purchased from the store that bought it.. Last year, it was a race to the mall the day after the show aired, as winning designs sold out in record time!

Up until now, I had been discouraged by the high prices this season’s Fashion Star pieces were going for. But after seeing Cassandra’s Geo Tunic on Friday night’s episode, I had to go check it out!

So imagine my surprise when I’m told by an Express associate that they don’t actually carry the Fashion Star pieces, and that you have to order them online!?

Personally, I need to try on clothes before I buy them.. And I imagine I’m not the only one like that. So I’m surprised by their decision to make these pieces available online-only. Needless to say, they lost a sale. (Not that it matters, as the only sizes left online are X-Small and XX-Small)

Too bad, as it’s a really cute top.. 🙁

Suits Fans – Who’s Hotter, Harvey Or Mike?

USA Network’s legal drama Suits is one of my favorite shows for many reasons.. Great writing, fun cases, and of course the eye-candy – Of course, I’m talking about Harvey Specter and Mike Ross.

The new season kicks off tonight, so I’ve gotta ask.. Who’s hotter?

Harvey

Mike


House Of Lies Returns For Another Season

While everyone talks about shows like Dexter and Homeland, there’s another show on Showtime that deserves some recognition.

House of Lies follows a group of management consultants who stop at nothing to get business deals done, even if it calls for extremes. It’s one of my favorite shows, and I’m thrilled that it got picked up for a second season!

The new season kicked off Sunday night, and while it wasn’t the strongest premiere, it’s really setting the tone for this upcoming season..

If you never watched the show before, Showtime On Demand has all 10 episodes from the first season. In 5 hours time, you’ll be all caught up and ready to go. 🙂

Who’s Watching The New Season Of ‘The Bachelor’?

The Bachelor returned for a 17th season on Monday night, and this season’s bachelor is Sean Lowe. You might remember him from Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette, where he was the last bachelor eliminated before the finale.

Now he’s back, with 26 women to choose from this time around. And a few things are pretty obvious this season:

  1. Even though the discrimination lawsuit against the show was dismissed, they’re being REALLY careful in their casting decisions this time around.
  2. In an attempt to show off Sean’s spontaneity, they have him hand out 12 roses before the first rose ceremony. CRAZY!
  3. The girls are total nutjobs who are desperate to get married!

While I really liked the girl who got the first rose, the previews for this season make it seem like she’s this season’s Vienna.

I’m also bummed that the girl obsessed with 50 Shades of Grey got sent home already.. That could have made for some interesting TV! 😀

Regardless, it looks like we’re in for another crazy season. If you missed the first episode, you can watch it online at ABC.com.

The Cutest Dog Is On MTV’s New Show ‘Buckwild’

I wasn’t planning on watching MTV’s Buckwild, but my hubby finally convinced me to give it a shot. It’s basically Jersey Shore meets Jackass, and it takes place in the woods of West Virginia. And believe it or not, it was actually pretty funny!

But the highlight of the show for me was seeing Cara’s cute puppy Elvis. She says he’s half dachshund (weiner dog) and half maltese, and he’s absoultely adorable.

It took me awhile, but I found some more pictures of him on her Instagram account.

No telling what he’ll look like all grown up, but right now I could just eat him up! 🙂

Bummed Out About ‘Last Resort’ Cancellation

Yet again, another quality show gets the axe thanks to ABC’s “death slot” (Thursday at 8PM). It’s a wonder why ABC bothers launching new shows in this timeslot, when nothing in this timeslot has gotten a second season since 2009!

This time, the victim is Last Resort. The series stars Scott Speedman and Andre Braugher as officers on a renegade Navy submarine, caught in the middle of a government cover up. Lots of action, a solid storyline, and a lot of eye candy!

I actually gave up watching 30 Rock so that I could watch Last Resort (the joys of DVR conflicts), but I guess I was in the minority.

Thankfully, the network will air all 13 episodes, and Last Resort co-creator Shawn Ryan promises a “kick-ass” ending.

Impractical Jokers Is Back For Another Season!

Impractical Jokers is one of the funniest shows on TV, bringing me to tears every time I watch it!

The show features four friends who dare each other to do crazy stuff to random people in public, and the results are hysterical. Check out the video below, where one of the guys convinces some customers in a car show room to climb into the trunk together:

It’s an absolute riot, and it’ll bring a smile to your face no matter how bad your day’s been. It airs on TruTV, Thursdays at 10pm.

My favorite episode? The one where they’re stealing food off of other people’s plates at a buffet. 😀
