I watch and (mostly) enjoy most of the reality dance shows on TV, but I'm watching Superstars of Dance right now, and it is TOTALLY BORING.  I got (unsolicited)  tickets to be in the audience, and now I'm EXTRA glad I didn't go.  What a waste of a day that would have been. 

I hate the editing... it might be better as a live show, but it just feels so off. Plus it doesn't help that the Argentinian judge is loopy and the South African judge throws out random insults every time he opens his mouth.

Besides, if I want to watch Robert Muraine again, I'd go hit up his Canadian IKEA commercial.

Good times.

I wish we got to see the UK version of "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" (which just finished its 8th season on ITV). George Takei in the jungle would have been something to watch.

I've never enjoyed any of the previous Rock of Love seasons, but I just got finished watching the premier of season 3 and I had a great time.  I think it's better because all the skanks are crammed together on tour buses.  Pure hillariosity  :D

Yeah, you pretty much have to discuss it right there while you're watching it.  For me, the details of the show slide off my brain and minutes after viewing and afterwards I'm left feeling like I just nearly escaped getting in a car accident.

I don't know what to do. My DVR is empty other than some Masterpiece theaters that I'm not in the mood to watch. I don't remember how to watch live TV!

I should really never watch Wheel of Fortune.  Besides the obvious reasons there is the abject stupidity of the contestants this show attracts.  Case in point, some old lady tonight spins and gets (by a c-hair) $1 million.  In order to win this she must solve on her turn... if I understand the rules.

The category is Place.  The board shows _O__Y OF A _ROAD_AY THEATER.

So on this turn, so as not to lose her million she asks for a B.  Giving us _OBBY OF A BROAD_AY THEATER.

Pat asks what she wants to do... and she deides to solve..... spin?  Ooooookaaaaay.

Old lady spins gets $300 or some such.  Okay, so she gets maximum $300 on top of the $1 million dollars she just risked.  She asks for a W, which of course is there.  Now we have _OBBY OF A BROADWAY THEATER.  I wonder what it could be?  Her next move is to solve.... WTF??? SPIN?  ARE YOU FUCKING CRAZY?

Ohhhh..... look at that Lose a GODDAMNED Turn.  Jesus H.  Where do they get these people?  And I thought the dumbasses that bought vowels were retarded.  Seriously why would anyone ever buy a fucking vowel?

My head asplode.

The $1 million thing SOUNDS awesome... but the truth is you have to land on it, guess a letter to keep it, then solve that puzzle to carry it forward.  Then and only then if you make it through the whole game while keeping the $1 million pie thing, then if you get to the bonus round, you play for $1 million.  I haven't seen anyone win it yet.  But I watch 1-2 times a week.  The kids LOVE it, and I'm a master at it.  And whenever I can't figure out a whole puzzle, Andrea's there to clean up the last word or two for me.

I didn't realize the person had to go on to be the champ that day.  But still, there's no reason she couldn't have solved the puzzle, she literally had only one letter to guess.

Yeah, I forgot about that extra step.  You have to spin the prize wheel and land on it.

Oh, well, no wonder she wasn't too upset when she lost it then.  I still don't get why she didn't solve the puzzle though, I mean, come on.
