Articles for Better With You Season 1

Relationships take center stage once again on ABC‘s Better Together, and with good reason. It‘s going to be interesting to see how they all intertwine in just one family. With three different couples trying to get by, both comedy and conflicts will easily ensue.First there‘s the prim and proper Maddie (Jennifer Finnigan), a lawyer living with boyfriend Ben (Josh Cooke). They‘ve been together for nine years but haven‘t tied the knot. Not to worry, they say they‘re really happy about it. Really, really happy.  Read more »

It is the considerable opinion of BuddyTV that the people should not be allowed to vote. This morning the 2011 People‘s Choice Award nominees were announced and the choices are less than inspired. Sure, like a broken clock, some of the choices show an impressive exhibition of taste (nominating Ian Somerhalder‘s highly entertaining performance on The Vampire Diaries), but mostly, it‘s an embarrassment. Read more »

Last night, FOX‘s American Idol proved there is life after Simon Cowell by beating its own ratings for not only last week, but last season‘s comparable episode as well.On last night‘s episode, the final four competitors took on songs by legendary songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who wrote such classics as "There Goes My Baby," "Yakety Yak," "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock," just to name a few. Oh, and "Stand By Me." Can‘t forget that one. In any case, Idol outperformed last week and last year. It was up 5% from last week, and it beat last season‘s top four episode by 1%, with 24.96 million viewers. Looks like Idol still has some blood flowing through its veins, even after all these years. I imagine the show will be around for a long time yet to come. Read more »

Some actors have all the luck, and others don‘t.

It might not actually be their fault, but through some cosmic joke, these actors continually get canceled.  Read more »
