8pmABC’s Pushing Daisies, blah blah blah.  Mere episodes are left of the creative show, so you could ride it out until the cliffhanger (yippie!), or go with The New Adventures of Old Christine and Gary Unmarried on CBSJulia Louis-Dreyfus is one of the few pretty ladies with the comedic chops to match, and Jay Mohr stars with Paula Marshall and Jaime King… both of whom have been naked on cable and film, so kudos to him.

9pmLife on NBC stars Sarah Shahi.  In most episodes, she happens to be in various states of undress.  Think – the second coming of Eva Longoria, minus the hype and annoying.

Sarah Shahi is not shy

10pm – Can’t wait ’til Jay Leno’s new show starts!  Not really… but there isn’t any crap on except for Law & Snoreder on NBC and Dirty Sexy Money Pit on ABC.  Do anything else instead.

Survivor Recap And Review: What About Bob?

Posted in CBS, Humor with tags , , on December 7, 2008 by sgottahurt

Doesn’t anyone know how to play this game anymore?

So on this past week’s Survivor, Bob tried to pull a quick one which failed, but in the grand scheme of things, he might have inadvertantly improved his situation.

Basically, he fashioned another immunity idol (where is he getting all those beads?), and hoped to use it to sway everyone to vote Matty out and save Corinne.  Both he and Corinne told Kenny this plan, thinking Kenny could get Crystal to go along with the idea, which he could and would, but the backfire was a loud one coming.

The inherent flaw in the plan is this: the idol isn’t real.  Of course, Kenny would try to flush it out.  He’s dumb, but not stupid.  Mor-on that in a second.  Why-oh-why did Bob and Corinne think he would let her keep it.  One alternative could have included Bob telling Kenny he had the allegedly tossed idol, and he would swear to let him use it if needed, under the condition that he would vote Matty out.  It might not have worked, but it’s a better plan than the one they went with.

Here’s where I think Kenny made a fatal flaw: if the idol was real, two votes would have been enough to knock out Matty.  I know he thought it was fool-proof, so what did it matter?  But now the game will/should/must change further. 

This is the way I see it.  Matty probably expected Corinne and Bob’s votes.  Kenny’s he did not.  What Matty (along with Sugar and Bob) needs to realize is Kenny, Crystal, and Susie are the weakest powerhouse ever.  They will not be broken in theory.  Matty should set his sights on Kenny, and to do so he needs to forge an alliance with the teacher and the pin-up girl whom actually has the real immunity idol.

I’ll give huge kudos to Bob if this was his plan all along, but somehow I doubt it.  My conspiracy theory is this: the producers provided him the materials to build fake idols, and the plots to give one to Randy to get in with Sugar and the second to stir the pot up.  What did he get out of it?  The safari walk he went on while at Exile Island.  Why else were there helicopters swooping around to capture the panoramic view of him?

The finale is on December 14th on CBS.  One week to go, then one month until my other island show is back.

8pm – There’s nothing to be done for ABC’s Pushing Daisies except to say: buy the Season 2 DVD next year.  That having been said, you have your pick of Christmas retread-itions (NBC lights up their 30 Rock tree and CBS lights up Rudolph’s nose).  Or you can check out Fox’s Secret Millionaire.

According to Fox’s site:

Each week, one of the wealthiest Americans, worth millions of dollars, will go undercover into one of the most impoverished and dangerous towns in America. Their job is to spend one week canvassing the town – meeting as many people as possible – some of whom will touch the millionaire with their dedication to helping others while others will have incredible stories of trying to overcome tremendous odds. On the final day, the Secret Millionaire meets with the chosen recipients and reveals his/her true identity and intentions – to give them a sum of money that is going to change their lives forever.

Unless the Secret Millionaires are Mark Cuban, Bill Gates, or Donald Trump – not interested.  But if there’s a possibility for a mugging…

9pm – If you’re interested in the Grammy’s, then CBS is for you.  They’ll announce the nominees and Celine Dion will perform.  If you’re interested in Grammy’s… you have a problem.

10pm – To the opposite end of the spectrum: Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  On CBSVictoria’s Secret.  Fashion Show.  What part of this are you not getting?

Secret Santas

 Much better than Secret Millionaires, indeed.

Sunday’s TV Picks

Let’s begin with an apology.  With the hectsticity that is Thanksgiving weekend (yes, hectsticity is a made up word, but it works, right?), the opportunity to cover Saturday’s TV picks fell to the waist-side (pun intended).  So without further adieu, here’s tonight’s TV selections:

8pm – If you’re watching the football game on NBC, then none of this matters.  If you’re not, it’s a toss-up bewteen the Emmy award-winning Amazing Race on CBS and the tear-jerking Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on ABC.  I dare you to watch a commerical for Home Makeover and not have your eyes water up.  And besides that, I think the show’s name should get a makeover to simply Home MakeoverExtreme is so blase, and also to note, it was a spin-off of a crappy show about plastic surgery.  It wasn’t quite as bad as The Swan, but what is?  (Answer: MTV’s I Want a Famous Face, natch)

9pm – Hmmm…. a lot of tough match-ups here.  A rerun of Fox’s Family Guy or a rerun of NBC’s Law & Order: SVU?  Then there’s also a new episode of ABC’s Desperate Housewives or a new episode of CBS’s Cold Case?  Turn on the remainder of the Bears vs. Vikings game, or else you’re left with Steve Irwin vs. the CIA (Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course on the CW).

10pm – Go with The Unit on CBS and watch President Palmer do something other than hock Allstate.  Or just finish watching the game.

Friday’s TV Picks

8pmThe Incredibles is on NBC, so it’s an easy choice, even though they cut out all the sex and nudity for broadcast tv, which is what made it so awesome.  What?  Oh, I’m thinking of The Inbedibles.  As they say in Canada, “Sorry!”  (Emphasis on the “o.”)

9pm – What are you still reading for?  There’s nothing else worth watching except The Incredibles!  Anyone that might enjoy the subtle homoeroticism of WWE Friday Night SmackDown on MyNetwork might be dazzled by the gayness that is The Polar Express on ABC, so there’s a conundrum for those folks at 8pm.  But if you like Chris Rock (The CW), Jack Black (Fox), or Jennifer Love Hewitt’s tits (CBS), your path has already been chosen.  There is no swaying you.

10:30pm – After The Incredibles, you can stay tuned and catch the second half of The Office’s season opener (which is a standalone episode), or if you’re a Hollywood whackjob like Madonna or (let’s be honest) Angelina Jolie, you can flip over to ABC and watch the second half of 20/20 – it’s about adopting foreign babies.  If you can’t stick foreign objects in places they don’t belong, why bother?
