The Apprentice: Piers Vs. Trace - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 24th 2008 4:42PM
The Celebrity ApprenticeThis coming Thursday, NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice will come to an end. Either the arrogant Brit or the American Cowboy will hear the words "You're hired."

In an unsurprising move, Donald Trump decided in last week's episode to have Piers Morgan and Trace Adkins face off during the final task. This decision goes against that of CNBC's Erin Burnett and Jim Cramer, brought on to interview the Top 4 contestants, but The Donald knew better than to have Carol Alt and Trace as the final two contestants. Both are really good contestants and played a clean game but, let's admit it, a live finale with Carol and Trace is not as promising as a Piers and Trace one ratings-wise.

Confessions vs. Millionaires (Matchmakers, that is)

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 15th 2008 2:41PM
MatchmakersIt's not too surprising when similar shows or movies suddenly appear at the same time, seemingly without one party knowing that the other project was even in the works. In fact, in the pilot for NBC's Lipstick Jungle -- which looks like ABC's Cashmere Mafia's twin sister -- the Brooke Shields character is a movie executive who learns that her company, which has been developing a Galileo biography for Leonardo DiCaprio, is competing with a rival studio that's also making a movie about the famous astronomer. In other words, these things happen all the time in show business! That's the case on cable TV now with not one, but two shows about a professional matchmaker.

The shows A&E's Confessions of a Matchmaker and Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker couldn't be more dissimilar in style. They're like different sides of the same coin: heads you're schmoozing in a hot tub with a Malibu millionaire, tails you're riding a Zamboni with a guy who works at a suburban ice-skating rink. That's how diametrically different these matchmaking yentas are! Aside from their passionate desire to make matches that work, the only other factor linking the Confessions' matchmaker to Millionaire's is that they share the same name, Patti!

Celebrity Apprentice: Piers Vs. Omarosa - VIDEOS

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Feb 15th 2008 10:02AM
Lipstick JungleA few words to describe the celebrity version of NBC's The Apprentice: drama, tempers, egos, backstabbing, bitching, arguing, egos and... more egos! This week, the bruised egos are those of America's Got Talent's Piers Morgan and of The Apprentice (Season 1) Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth. Since the beginning of the season, both have been strong and opinionated players on their respective teams. Even if they didn't have to work together, Piers and Omarosa were pretty vocal about what they thought of each other. This week, hell broke lose when Trump decided to mix up the teams and the enemies ended up, you guessed it, on the same team!

Team Jack vs. Team Locke

Terry O'Quinn, Josh Holloway, Naveen Andrews, Elizabeth Mitchell, and Matthew Fox

Last week's riveting Lost premiere brought the Jack-Locke conflict to an entirely new level. This time, all of the survivors (including some of the Others) were forced to choose sides. It wasn't an easy decision, and there were some surprising choices. Each side has its benefits and its drawbacks. Let's take a closer look at these new teams!

Will Stephen Baldwin leave Celebrity Apprentice this Thursday? - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Feb 5th 2008 7:03PM
Stephen BaldwinEven if you don't watch The Celebrity Apprentice, it's pretty much a given that you watched this week's preview (after the jump) during which we see Stephen Baldwin tell Donald Trump that he can't continue working with Piers Morgan.

Let's face it, Baldwin and the America's Got Talent judge have not been seeing eye to eye from the very beginning of the show. Even if they somewhat worked well together on the tasks, their business relationship was pretty much a hate-hate one or at least a "I'm tolerating you because I have to." But in light of the Vincent Pastore fiasco from last week, Baldwin has had enough and may give The Donald his resignation... or will he?

Celebrity Apprentice: Piers Vs. Vinnie - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Feb 1st 2008 10:19AM
The Celebrity ApprenticeIf you watched The Celebrity Apprentice this week, you probably still are thinking and talking about that boardroom scene (and I use that latter word here to mean both "a subdivision of the episode" and "an exhibition of anger or indecorous behavior"). Even if it looked childish at times, we have to admit that this was one of the most entertaining boardroom ever!

In short, during the task America's Got Talent's Piers Morgan, who was project manager for the men's team, sent The Sopranos' Vincent Pastore over the women's team to spy on them. Of course, it backfired: Vinnie, who did it willingly (see the first video after the jump), eventually admitted to the ladies that he was sent there to spy but that he now wanted to be a double agent; and, later on the episode, Vinnie and Piers had a major argument about the "rat project". In the boardroom, Vinnie revealed to Trump what had happened. This was followed by more argument between Piers and Vinnie, and comments from the women, the other men, Trump and his children.

Buy More Vs. Work Bench

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 19th 2007 11:07AM
Reaper / ChuckBeing a fan of both Chuck and Reaper, I've had this discussion with friends before: if I had to work either at the Buy More or Work Bench, which one would I prefer and why? I'm sure many fans already discussed this somewhere on the web but when I read the "Battle of the Box Stores" blurb in the December 7 edition of Entertainment Weekly, I thought it was about time we had the same discussion here at TV Squad.

Angel Vs. Mick St. John

Angel and MoonlightWhen Moonlight first aired, TV fans couldn't help themselves but to compare the series with Angel. Both series have a good looking vampire as its lead and said main character is an investigator. At first glance, Moonlight's lead vampire, Mick St. John, may sound like an Angel clone. Let's compare, shall we?

The Singing Bee Vs. Don't Forget the Lyrics

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Jul 13th 2007 10:17AM
Wayne BradyThis week, two networks premiered game shows that are really similar. NBC launched The Singing Bee while FOX premiered Don't Forget the Lyrics. Which one will last longer? Will both tank? Or maybe both will survive thanks to their lead in: America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance, respectively.

Now that both premieres aired it's time to decide if you'll be a singing bee or you'll try to not forget the lyrics.

Grey's Anatomy vs. the spin-off - Part 2

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 4th 2007 10:25AM
Private PracticeLess than two weeks ago, we pondered if the spin-off would be better than Grey's Anatomy based on the information and spoilers that had leaked so far. Now that the two Grey's Anatomy's episodes serving to launch the potential spin-off have aired, it is time to revisit our "Grey's Anatomy vs. the spin-off" article and reflect on if we were right or not and decide what series is better based on what aired last night.

Grey's Anatomy vs. the spinoff

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 23rd 2007 12:01PM
Kate WalshNews about the Grey's Anatomy spinoff have been pouring in since late February when it was announced that Grey's character Addison would possibly get her own show. Since then, fans and critics have been speculating as to whether this was a good or a bad idea.

Earlier this week, ABC gave official details about the two episodes that will serve as a test to see if the spinoff will indeed be part of their 2007-2008 lineup or if Addison will stay at Seattle Grace.

Even if the two-hour spinoff episodes will only air on May 3, we can already start speculating as what series we will like better: Grey's Anatomy or Private Practice (the spinoff's tentative title).

Mike Vs. Ian on Desperate Housewives

Desperate HousewivesMike Vs. Ian. Even though Susan Mayer said yes to Ian's proposal on Desperate Housewives, any fan can see that she still has feelings for Mike and is somewhat second guessing her decision to wed Ian.

Pretty much anyone can predict that, even though Mike lost the poker game, things are not over between Susan and him. For sure, Mike will come back in the picture and somehow put Susan's wedding to Ian in jeopardy.

Plane survivors Vs. the Others

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 30th 2007 6:02PM
LostWhen Lost premiered, fans didn't have to decide who they liked best between the plane survivors and the Others as when the latter were first mentioned, it was clear they were the bad guys. Things got confirmed when Ethan was found out and when we witnessed the boat scene at the end of the Season 1 finale.

Have things changed since then? Do we still think the famous Others are so bad? When new episodes air, do we pray to see more scenes in Othersville or at the beach? Do we root for Juliet or Kate to get Jack? That may be another issue, but it's sill a plane survivor versus an Other.

Bones Vs. the Kathy Reichs books

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 26th 2007 12:42PM
BonesI'll admit it, in late July 2005, when I first watched the pilot of the FOX's series Bones, my comments about this show weren't stellar. However, I gave it another chance when it officially premiered on FOX and my opinion slowly started to change. Now, almost two years after the premiere, Bones is one of the shows I try not to miss, especially due to the "relationship" between Bones (aka Temperance Brennan), played by Emily Deschanel, and Booth, played by Angel's David Boreanaz.

Before Bones, I had never heard of Kathy Reichs or her books. Until last February, I had been afraid of reading one of her books featuring the lead character on Bones, Temperance Brennan. This fear was caused by reading countless of books later turned into movies that didn't stay true to the books. This time, I was afraid that the character I love from the show wouldn't be the same in the books (most of them were published before Bones hit the screen).

My fear was right.

But Grey's Anatomy's fans know that George and Izzie renewed their friendship and even more when "Gizzie" was created in the latest episode!

So who will George choose? Wife Callie or best friend Izzie? With that, we bring you "Callie vs. Izzie".
