"Beauty and the Geek" Reveals Yet Another Twist...

... and I won't be sticking around to watch it.

Is anyone else just totally over this once-fantastic now unwatchable series? Sad.

I don't care about gratuitous twists, skanky contestants that appear willing to bed the geeks in order to stay in the house, or why the producers feel that they need to shake up a winning formula by introducing such drivel and undermining their own brand.

I'm out.

So you stayed around just long enough for them to pair them up and bring back the Beauty and the Geek we loved, doing away with the awful Beauty vs. Geek?!?!
I felt last night's episode finally was heading back to the show I loved. I didn't like the fact that the people who switched sides were automatically out if their team lost, and I didn't like that the girls picked the teams, leaving one poor geek to be left out (brought back too many memories of being picked last for sports, which I'm sure it did for the geeks as well)
But I loved seeing Leticia waiting on the steps for Matt to return from the hospital. And how upset Tiffany was at sending him there. This was the show I signed up for, and hopefully starting next week we will get it back.
Besides the slut who tried to hook up with the completely clueless Tommy is gone, and the rest seem like they might be changing.
But I just can't believe now is where you decided to leave, which makes me wonder, did you finish last night's episode?
Too little too late. Yes, it looks like they are returning to the old format but, sadly, they've annoyed me too much to care.

The American TV viewer is being willingly sucked to the bottom of a pool of televised toxic waste.

Dance With The Stars
Dance Without The Stars
Do It With A Star
Bachelor This, Bachelorette That
Beauty Geek Survivor Idol Race Rock-Star Brother

It's all one show, it reeks of lack of imagination, and it sucks the big one.

At the same time I'm Googling Bret Michaels because I've never freaking heard of him, I'm haunted by questions like "where the hell did 'Alias' go?" and "who's the Einstein that canceled "Firefly" after a dozen eppies?"

People who support crap TV deserve crap TV. The rest of us are having trouble finding something to watch. No wonder downloading movies is so popular.

Sigh. No, I'm still stuck on it. They almost lost me with the Geeks vs. Beauty direction, but things are relatively back on track. The participants do seem to lack the charm of players in seasons past, though.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
