I Love New York

Terrified by a Turtle on 'Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters' (VIDEO)

Terrified by a Turtle on 'Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters'Question: Why did the turtle cross the road? Answer: To get picked up by two easily frightened rappers. At least, that's what takes place on the premiere of 'Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1).

But this point, you may have some additional questions. In fact, you might be saying something like this: "Real? Chance? Legend? Hunters? ... What?" These are all excellent points to bring up, so kudos!

"Real" and "Chance" are two former contestants from the dating show 'I Love New York.' They're rappers, and they are also brothers. And now, they have their own wildlife-related reality series on VH1, where they track down mythical and not-so-mythical animals. Why? ... Why not? Or at least, "Why not?" was the thinking on the part of VH1 executives -- and it's too late to stop the show now, so we may as well just go along with it.

Frank the Entertainer Looks for Love in His Parents' Basement

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Dec 9th 2009 1:58PM
VH1's reality TV's programming has scraped so much from the bottom of the barrel that there's actually a hole in the bottom (hey, we can see Bravo's spring lineup from here!). But here's a touching story for you: Frank Moresco, a.k.a. Frank the Entertainer -- the hormonal crooner and breakout star of season 2 of 'I Love New York' and both seasons of 'I Love Money' -- is getting his own VH1 reality show entitled 'Frank the Entertainer ... in a Basement Affair,' which premieres Sun., Jan. 3 at 8PM.

The show attempts to answer the eternal question: Can a man find love from his parent's basement?

What's the best advertising slogan and who's the best advertising icon?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 25th 2009 5:00PM
Snap, Crackle, and PopAs I've mentioned here several times before, I'm a huge fan of TV commercials, especially the history and what goes on behind the scenes of campaigns and slogans (I think it's 60% why Mad Men is one of my favorite shows). Advertising Week wants you to vote in their poll to name the best advertising icons of all-time and the best slogans of all-time. This poll happens every year, and you can see past winners who are now in the Walk of Fame at the link above.

This year the choices include Ronald McDonald (as well as the slogan "I'm Lovin' It"), that creepy Burger King guy, the Maytag repairman, Snap, Crackle, and Pop, "Got Milk" and more.

UnsureWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

So no I Love Money on Sunday night? Wha-what? Pshaw! How can I do my awesome picture books without a new episode?

Okay enough complaining. After the jump, I'm going to discuss a show that doesn't exist (yet) in the VH1 skanktastic line-up: Charm School: The Men of I Love New York. I've got a list of my fantasy cast.

It's lights, camera, New York this summer - VIDEO

New York goes to tinsel town this summerVH1 diva Tiffany "New York" Pollard is back this summer for another chapter in her celebreality life. New York Goes to Hollywood premieres in August and will follow your favorite H.B.I.C. as she leaves Tailor-Made behind and tries to make it in Tinsel Town.

To rev up for the new show, VH1 put together a set of promos that have New York acting as classic Hollywood characters. She plays Dorothy from Wizard of Oz: "Toto, where the f*ck are we?" She plays Marilyn Monroe in that classic scene where the blonde starlet walks over the sidewalk grate. However, New York uses the breeze from the passing subway car to dry her nails and her nether regions. Whatever works, right? Finally, New York plays Forrest Gump and imparts some wisdom about life and chocolates.

The videos are after the jump. All three are stupid and unfunny. And all three prove the New York's new show is going to be a blast. Check it out and let me know what you think.

New York Goes to Hollywood premieres August 4th at 9 p.m. ET on VH1.

Welcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

There's been a lull in trashtastic programming lately. I'm stuck watching So You Think You Can Dance (some of the those Latin ballroom costumes are a little slutty) and Secret Diary of a Call Girl (scripted skankiness). I long for VH1 to start their summer of skanktacity. We got a little taste last night with the I Love Money casting special. Check out my review after the jump.

Superteaser for VH1's I Love Money

by Kristin Sample, posted May 27th 2008 12:01PM
Heather ChadwellVH1 released a superteaser for their new summer celebreality series I Love Money last Friday. From the looks of the video, I Love Money will be more of the trashiness and scandal we've come to expect from other VH1 shows like Rock of Love, Flavor of Love, I Love New York and Charm School. The cast will be split into two teams (gold and green) and compete for a $250,000 prize a lá the Real World / Road Rules Gauntlet or Inferno shows. However, since this cast is less athletic and more skanky than the RW/RR folks, the actual challenges themselves look like they will be much more entertaining. And of course, you won't be tuning in just for the competitions. According to the superteaser, they'll be hook-ups, secret alliances, a spitting contest (perfect for Pumkin), and even some "true" love.

The superteaser is five minutes long! That's five minutes of skanky goodness for your enjoyment.

Casting call: Ryan Seacrest has a new dating show

by Kristin Sample, posted May 19th 2008 4:25PM
Ryan SeacrestAre you a "momma's boy"? Or are you a mother who is really overprotective about who your son dates? Well, if you are, you might want to try out for Ryan Seacrest's (American Idol) and Andrew Glassman's (Average Joe) new show Momma's Boys. NBC's new reality series will air after the Summer Olympics in Bejing. The show will center around a group of mothers choosing the perfect woman for their sons. According to the press release, "drama ensues when numerous mothers and their eligible bachelor sons are housed together with several single women." So, they have to live together too? This sounds like The Bachelor meets Sister Patterson from I Love New York.

Reality Show casting calls

by Paul Goebel, posted May 17th 2008 3:02PM

reality castingA day hasn't gone by where we haven't received some sort of tip or email asking us, the TV Squad, how to get on [insert reality show here]. Unfortunately no, Simon Cowell does not work for us, and Donald Trump isn't my BFF, so we really can't help all that much.

The folks at RealityWanted.com often send us a list of new and existing reality shows that are looking for new, er, talent, and they've given us permission to make mention of them here. We'll try to make this a regular feature as often as we get a new list.

This time we have SuperNanny, Don't Forget the Lyrics and other new shows.
