"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.

Springsteen said it 20 years ago, "57 Channels and Nothing On."

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 .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

Televisionary

Back in 2006, I founded a television blog called Televisionary (the very one you're reading now).  At the time, it was a little side-project that I stared while working in television development: something to do during the off-hours or (my infrequent) down-time or at my desk during my lunch breaks.  Over the next few years, Televisionary morphed into a full-time job as I watched almost everything on television and cataloged my thoughts, penning reviews, conducting interviews with talent, breaking news, and aggregating the day’s entertainment news headlines and major listings every morning. It got noticed by Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times , The Chicago Tribune and CNN, Deadline and Variety . Televisionary took on a life of its own. It became discussed in Hollywood and I was always surprised to discover that actors or producers or executives who read my TV blog. It was a secret at first, one that I eventually shared with a few friends before spreading outwards, thanks
