Record-breaking reality TV leaves little to the imagination

Sunday night was a milestone in reality TV.

The E! channel set a record when 4.8 million viewers watched "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" on Sunday night, making the season 4 finale the most watched telecast in the network’s history, according to Nielsen ratings.

And if Kourtney’s on-again, off-again relationship with Scott Disick - the reality star fans love to hate - wasn’t enough to reel viewers in, surely the birth of Kourtney’s son Mason Dash Disick was. FULL POST

'The Bachelor': Define 'telling all'

It's the "Women Tell All" episode, and Chris Harrison has brought a studio audience with him to let you know that.  We start with a pre-recorded interview with Jake, where Chris notes that everything Jake went through "was real."  This critic and countless others tend to disagree.

Back to the studio, where Chris looks at what he calls a "sexy new phenomenon" - "Bachelor" cast reunions.  Or, as ABC unofficially calls it, potential casting for this summer's "Bachelor Pad" spin-off.

Now, a word from Chris Harrison, who would like to remind you that "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" alumni are obligated to give back to the community.  The community didn't ask, but here comes Jerry O'Connell's brother and others, helping fifth graders with a mural.  Now, are the 5th graders supposed to learn from the alumni or the other way around?

I pledge allegiance... to '24'

"24": Day 8 - 12 a.m. to 1 a.m.

Let's get right to it. This week's episode of "24" is the kind of episode we (a) pump fists for, and (b) pledge allegiance by.

Bauerites, we have liftoff. I've been pretty hard on the show in recent weeks, and many on this blog stood united on that front. We have been wanting more from Jack and the show to this point, and finally, we got the goods. The only word I can think of for this week's episode is fantastic. Seriously, that's the only one.

The show was so fantastic that I actually heard a CTU Senior Analyst say "My name is not Dana Walsh." (Me speaking to the TV: "Excuse me? Your name's NOT Dana Walsh?") Now, try to picture me raising up in my comfy "watching 24" chair, finally freed from the ball-and-chain of the dreaded Dana/Kevin storyline.

Freedom from this incredibly dumb subplot? Thank you! FULL POST
