"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 .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
