Talk Back: CW's "Stylista"

How many of you tuned in to watch the CW's latest fashion-related reality competition series, Stylista, last night?

By now you've not only read my advance review of the first two episodes of Stylista but had a chance to catch the premiere episode yourself.

So I'm curious to know: what did you think? Did you fall for Stylista's charms or did you think it was too much of a reality version of Devil Wears Prada? Did you think that Elle magazine editor Anne Slowey was out-bitched by contestant Megan? How much longer can Kate (a.k.a. "Boobs") last in this competition with seemingly every other participant rooting against her? And the biggest question of all: will you tune in again next week?

Talk back here.

Next week on Stylista ("Hidden Gems"), the editor wannabes are tasked with dressing mannequins using specific fashion points and are also separated into teams and asked to find a "hidden gem" in Chinatown and write it up for the magazine.

I had really low expectations of this show but must admit that I kind of enjoyed it. The contestants were irksome but in a good way that makes you want to tune back in. And although Anne Slowey is a knockoff version of Miranda Priestly, I thought that, overall, the show was entertaining.

I didn't read your review (I will now). I had no interest in watching, and then I saw a commercial for it that made me want to give it a chance. I have to say, I was pretty much in it from the start. I do love watching that Devil Wears Prada world. There are some things that don't work, but it's cheesy fun, so far. They've cast it really well, I think.

But you know how uncomfortable I get when there is massive bullying going on. At first, my heart was breaking for Kate, but her attitude in the second half didn't help her cause.

And since when aren't boobs ok to show in fashion? :)

I truly despise Megan. She just seems like that spoiled, self-entitled type who will never have the self-awareness to realize how cruel she is. And for me, as a reality show villain, she isn't that interesting because she is so cruel.

I am rooting for Ashlie, so far, and that one girl who was on Ashlie's team, with the partly shaved do.

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: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

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
