by David Hofstede, posted Feb 26th 2010 2:00PM
Caite Upton and Brent Horne Amazing RaceTwo teams are already gone, and nine teams are still running around the world in 'The Amazing Race 16.'

And while CBS hasn't exactly been generous with the airtime for a couple of teams, we've already seen enough game play in the first two episodes to boldly rank the racing pairs in order of their chances to win the $1 million prize.

I won't miss Jersey Shore

jersey_shore_mtvLast night was the wrap up for Jersey Shore. I have to tell you, I won't miss it. Unlike many others who were drawn in to Jersey Shore, the show never grew on me. The MTV reality show got an inordinate amount of media coverage. It became the butt of jokes all over the place, the perfect gag line. It was controversial and insulting to the actual people who love and live on the Jersey Shore.

But the show is horrible. Truly, deeply and utterly horrible. I watched it to see what the fuss was all about, but after ten minutes, I had had enough. It wasn't funny or goofy or even car-wreck compelling. It was just dumb. Even with the subtitles, I could barely understand them.

'Amazing Race' Season 16 Cast Revealed

by Scott Harris, posted Jan 21st 2010 2:15PM

Jordan Lloyd had to overcome a number of obstacles on her way to winning 'Big Brother' last fall, avoiding backstabbers, coup d'etats and secret coalitions. But how will she fare when she has to deal with a broken ox?

Well, fans of reality TV are about to find out, because CBS has announced that Lloyd and her 'Big Brother' boyfriend Jeff Schroeder will be among the teams competing in the new season of 'Amazing Race,' set to premiere on February 14.

This isn't the first time that CBS has indulged in a little cross-promotion; America's least favorite sweethearts, "Boston" Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich, also made the jump to 'Amazing Race' following successful stints on 'Survivor.' The strategy is part of the network's ongoing efforts to secure an audience for 'Race,' which despite winning the Emmy for Outstanding Reality Competition in each of the seven years it has been awarded still trails 'Survivor' in the ratings. After a relatively weak effort from 'Big Brother' last summer, however, this time around the stunt may be designed to help both sides of the equation.

Simon Fuller to Launch 'Dream' Show

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Dec 17th 2009 10:53AM
It's a reality show that will actually be real. And it won't be one weekly episode, shot, edited and promoted for prime time. It'll be a round-the-clock scene, the closest that media has come to creating the world of the Jim Carrey film 'The Truman Show.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'American Idol' mogul Simon Fuller will launch 'If I Can Dream,' a series which follows five young people -- two actresses, one actor, a model and a musician -- hoping to make it in Hollywood. The aspiring entertainers will live together in a home in Hollywood Hills, with their experience to be streamed on MySpace, Clear Channel Radio and Hulu.

'Big Brother 9' Winner Adam Jasinski Arrested in Oxycodone Bust

by Patricia Chui, posted Oct 20th 2009 12:19PM
Adam JasinskiWhat would YOU do if you won $500,000 on a reality show? Would you buy a house, a car, or ... deal drugs with it? Adam Jasinski, winner of 'Big Brother' season 9, went the latter route -- he's been arrested for using his $500,000 prize money to buy and resell the painkiller Oxycodone, which is considered a controlled substance.

According to reports, Jasinski attempted to sell 2,000 pills to a government witness in Massachusetts. He'd flown to Boston from his home in Florida, getting into the witness' car and showing him a sock filled with two bags of the pills. The witness drove him from Logan Airport to a strip mall, where police arrested Jasinski (but not before he struggled with the authorities and, according to the Huffington Post, threw the sock underneath a nearby car).

Big Brother 11: PoV #9, Eviction #10, HoH #11 (start)

Kevin needs to win the power of veto
(S11E27) Yep, we're nearing the end of Big Brother 11 as the final four gets chopped down to the final three. It's not the final three (or four) I would have imagined at the beginning of the season, but rarely does my first impression hold out. As the very pregnant Julie Chen mentioned at the top of the show, there is one representative from each original clique left in the game. I also wouldn't have predicted that she'd last the season. But she proved me wrong.

Michele listens to Chima in the BB11 house

(S11E17) I think Michele's eyes are glazing over and she's put herself into a coma state as she listens to Chima rant on about Russell in the head of household room. You see, Chima isn't over her loss of power to Jeff's use of the coup d'etat in the Big Brother 11 eviction this past week. How dare Jeff change her nominations! How dare America screw her over by voting to give Jeff the power! How dare they evict Jessie (the man, the myth, the legend) instead of her choice of Russell, the terrorist. Mind you, those are her words ... not mine.

Big Brother 11 is really Drama City!Admit it. You don't want to wait until Sunday night ... or maybe even Tuesday night to hear about the big drama going on in the Big Brother 11 house. Sure, the real happenings in the house are usually a few days ahead of the actual airing of the shows.

Yes, the nominations have already happened. But that's not even the major news of the day. I'm talking huge. I'm talking BB history annals big. I'm talking drama, I'm talking excitement. But, unless you want to know major spoilers, be warned that show-changing news is beyond the jump.

Jeremy Piven on 'Big Brother': Shameless Movie Plug Alert!

Jeremy PivenSo, last night's episode of 'Big Brother 11' was filled with the usual petty arguments, inane conversations about spider anatomy and endless strategizing ... when all of a sudden Jeremy Piven stopped by.

Yes, that Jeremy Piven. The three-time Emmy winner from 'Entourage randomly showed up at the 'BB' house and cracked jokes with the houseguests. Was Piven just in the neighborhood? Of course not. He delivered some, ah, interesting news: The luxury challenge reward would be a screening of his new movie, 'The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard.'

Groan. Really, Piven, this is how low you'll go?

Chima is queen of the house on Big Brother 11

(S11E14) Well, the power was up for grabs in the Big Brother 11 house on Thursday, and Chima not only snagged it, but she's relishing it. I have a feeling she's not going to be happy relinquishing it when the time comes. She's Queen Bee! She's the woman with power! A woman should win this game! Unite, gals! Burn your bras; join the revolution. But will she go as far as losing Jessie as an ally? Read on.

Big Brother 11: Power of Veto #4

Russell is the head of household this week in the Big Brother 11 house

(S11E12) This week in the Big Brother 11 house, it's all about fractioning the factions. As is typical, it's already a house divided. So, for fun ... let's divide it twice more! Oh, heck. Go for thrice-divided. Even with a scorecard, it's hard to tell who's on first. Therefore, I think we need advanced mathematical equations. The show is often about lying and backstabbing, but it's generally a bit more predictable than this. This time we're talking crossing party lines.
