I think the So You Think You Can Dance gods are listening to me, because another one of my favorite dancers will be an All-Star next week.But, again, I shouldn‘t be too excited. For one, we‘ve got only two weeks left before the season ends. But this week‘s shows were so good (except for the eliminations) I can‘t help but feel pretty good for next week. More All-Stars! The Prince of Buccness! Pia freaking Toscano!Okay, you know I‘m not exactly a Pia fan... but that‘s a different topic altogether. Anyway, here‘s what to expect on SYTYCD next week. Read more »

FOX put a lot of time and money into The X Factor, Simon Cowell‘s new singing competition show that he promises is nothing like American Idol, and when it comes to the ratings, he‘s right. The show got off to a slow start averaging just over 12 million viewers over its two-hour premiere.By comparison, American Idol‘s latest season premiered with over 26 million viewers and stayed above 20 million all season. In addition, The X Factor also did worse than America‘s Got Talent and was about on par with the premiere of The Voice. For The X Factor to do less than half that while giving away a $5 million prize is a bad start if FOX wants it to be the new face of the network. This looks like it could be a one-and-done experiment that goes horribly wrong.  Read more »

Babies don‘t make good television: just an incredible amount of human waste and supersonic banshee cries. That‘s just the general rule of thumb (slightly tweaked a little) in the cases of television and real life. Yet the show Up All Night is completely crafted around this idea that babies are actually great if they have likeable leads. Say, a baby, Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph? Up All Night spoilers dead ahead! Turn around if you‘re wary of being spoiled.  Read more »

While there are several gay and African-American characters on TV, these awards usually highlight the lack of diversity by picking out such obscure nominees.

Super Bowl XLVI puts the New York Giants against the New England Patriots, and while many fans are excited about the match-up, I‘m proud to admit that I‘m one of those people who watches the Super Bowl for the commercials.
