new year, new tv

Happy new year! What a better way to kick off the new year with a new season of 24!! Jack is back, TONY is back and the ever beloved Potato Face is back as well. Oh how we love you Chloe. I am currently in the midst of a 4-hour season premiere and it is FAB. Tony has returned from the dead, turned out to be a bad guy, and then turned out to be a not such a bad guy after all. Intense. Pay close attention this season as Janeane Garofalo attempts to take on the role of Potato Face working for the FBI and the new woman president attempts to piss off everyone in her cabinet.

Oh, Tony. My how you've perfected the faux bad guy look.

desperate and awesome.

I'm still far from caught up on catching up on tv but I just watched the season premiere of Desperate Housewives and am totally confused as to what the heck has happened since last season:

* Lynette's kids have doubled in age and are in high school now - they're SIXteen!
* Gabby is a housemom and has a chubby daughter (but still a blind husband)
* Edy's back and married.
* Susan is sleeping with her painter and Susan and Mike are no more because of a car accident. So sad.
* Bree's still married to Orson but Danielle came and took her baby back.

Oh- and I'm 30!

dance overload

A new season of Dancing with the Stars started this week, and somehow, according to my DVR, there have already been THREE episodes this week but it's only WEDNESDAY. wtf. A bit overkill, no? How exactly do they expect people to keep up with this? Season 7's stars:

Cody Linley, some kid from Hannah Montana that I'm sure my niece knows
Celebrity Chef Rocco Dispirito, who is dancing with an injured dancer
Toni Braxton
Olympic Gold Medalist Maurice Greene
"Actress" Brooke Burke
Actor Ted McGinley - aka Jeff D'arcy from Married with Children
Lance Bass, the token boy band contestant of the season
Cloris Leachman (I know nothing about her)
Comedian Jeffrey Ross
Reality tv star Kim Kardashian
Soap actress Susan Lucci
Olympic Volleyball Gold Medalist Misty May-Treanor
Football player Warren Sapp

Lots of athletes. Two dances in the first week and two couples eliminated right off the bat. Whew!

I'm currently watching a marathon of the new 90210 (yup, a fabulous Saturday night). So far, it's pretty great. Well cast and just the right amount of funny.

So far, things I love:
Hearing Coldplay at the beginning of the premiere episode.
Hearing the modernized version of the original theme song.
The return of Kelly Taylor.
The Peach Pit.
The references to The Hills.
How terribly bitchy everyone is.

Things I don't love:
Not hearing the original theme song in its original glory.
How bitchin' skinny everyone is.
How terribly bitchy everyone is.

the storyline is so far not overly interesting, kind of predictable and very high school. Good times.

UPDATE: Brenda Walsh just made an appearance. Amazing.

I just watched the season premiere of SNL, hosted by Olympic champ Michael Phelps.

Tina Fey as Sarah Palin is GENIUS, and is exactly what I pictured when I watched her speech at the RNC. I sort of pictured Amy Poehler in a different role, but having her play Hillary Clinton next to Tina Fey as Palin is AMAZING. Tina totally nailed it, and Amy Poehler as Michael Phelps' mom is pretty great.

Michael Phelps ain't much of an actor - but still kinda adorable. In a super dorky kind of a way.

I'm not really into politics, but just happened to flip past the Republic National Convention after the Yankees game ended and stopped to listen to Sarah Palin's speech for a minute, mostly because I was hoping to catch a glimpse of new teen celebrities Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston.

In any case, is it just me or is Sarah Palin reminiscent of Tina Fey? This is soooo an SNL skit waiting to happen!

summer's end

Labor Day weekend brought beautiful weather, a trip to the Hamptons, yummy BBQ, and the official end of summer. So sad. BUT, the unofficial end of summer means the unofficial start to fall tv! Tomorrow brings the premiere of the 90210 spinoff. So exciting. Also coming up is a new season of America's Next Top Model. And FOOTBALL!!! Ahhh... who said fall is a bad thing?

moley mole

Just caught up on the Mole and found out who won and who lost and who was the Mole. Craig was seriously the most un-moley mole ever. And abc is on CRACK if they think that ANY of the "clues" they embedded in the show were decipherable!
