Where Did 2010 Go? Down the Tube

by Stephanie Earp, posted Dec 29th 2010 8:00AM
I hate to break it to you guys, but the time of sugarplums and reindeer is over. What once were presents are now mere possessions and the next holiday on the calendar is vying for your attention. It's almost time for New Year's resolutions.

I've always believed that those who don't understand history are doomed to repeat it, so it seemed high time for me to make an honest account of how I spent 2010 before making any goals for 2011: I spent it watching television.

My resolution? I'd like to watch less television. Well it's more complicated than that - I'd like to watch more good TV and less bad TV. Allow me to recap 2010 for you, so you'll see why:

'Dog Whisperer': Finding a New Leash on Life (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 6th 2010 2:10AM
'Dog Whisperer': Finding a New Leash on Life Sometimes you have to ask: Is a pet a hopeless case, or has he just not found the right home? That's the question on the latest 'Dog Whisperer' (Fri., 8PM ET on Nat Geo). Trainer Casar Millan is often the last hope for frustrated dog-owners. But in this case, the dog in question doesn't even have an owner.

You might call Maury "frisky," Or you might just call him "high-strung." Or you might even call him "insanely annoying." Maury has been in and out of the local animal rescue clinic. The big brown dog just has too much energy, and he inevitably ends up biting his new owner, then winding up in the shelter again. This has been going on for two years, and the staff at rescue services are starting to think he's unadoptable. Can Maury find a home in the world?

Cesar Millan Counsels Woman on 'Dog Whisperer'On 'Dog Whisperer' (Fri., 8PM ET on NAT GEO), Cesar Millan advises a husband and wife to "practice calmness with each other." He says, "It's how you deliver the message" -- both human to human and human to dog.

The woman thinks "that's a great thing. I mean, I would love to do that ... [Millan] not only does dog whispering, he does family counseling."

She goes on to tell Millan about problems at the dog park. When she gets worked up, she suddenly remembers to take a breath and be calm. "I'm already learning," the wife says.

Cesar Millan Is 'Whisperer' to Both Anxious Owner and Dog (VIDEO)

Cesar Millan Assists Astronaut on 'Dog Whisperer'On 'Dog Whisperer' (Fri., 8PM ET on NAT GEO), NASA astronaut Leland Melvin needs Cesar Millan's help with his two dogs.

Both Melvin and his canine Jake are anxious. Millan tells the owner, "It's more important that you pay attention [to] your energy ... They'd rather have a calm human than a human who's saying 'good boy.'"

As Melvin attempts to put a temporary muzzle on Jake, the dog gets agitated and bears his teeth. Millan notes that it's a nervous reaction, not aggression. Once Melvin takes control of the situation, everyone calms down.

Olivia Munn Gets Some Obedience Training From the 'Dog Whisperer' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Nov 12th 2010 9:35AM
Olivia Munn Gets Some Obedience Training From the 'Dog Whisperer' Words can have double meanings. But the "Tsst!" sound is universal. It's an important lesson to learn. And on the new 'Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), reporter Olivia Munn received some instruction from Cesar Millan, the "Dog Whisperer."

The Comedy Central correspondent had been reporting on a story involving cruelty to animals. In keeping with the show's satirical bent, Munn attacked a woman who opposed puppy mills in front of Mr. Millan -- one of the world's most famous dog-lovers.

Olivia complained to Cesar that she was having trouble with a "b*tch" -- which of course can also refer to a female dog. The camera then panned to the confused-looking Madeline Bernstein. Poor Ms. Bernstein was only trying to outlaw puppy mills -- commercial dog-breeding facilities that are notoriously overcrowded and inhumane.

Why I'm Obsessed With 'Dog Whisperer'

by Stephanie Earp, posted Nov 8th 2010 5:00PM

I went to see 'Cesar Millan Live.' Usually when a television writer tells you they went to a television-related event, what they mean is that a publicity contact provided them with tickets, an interview or a backstage pass. I went to see 'Cesar Millan Live,' but I bought the tickets myself.

I admit it, I love 'Dog Whisperer.' Still, when the commercials on the National Geographic Channel started running with Cesar's gleaming white smile telling me to stay calm and assertive, as he was on his way, I didn't give it much thought. But (proving that ads do work) it slowly seeped into my consciousness. What, I wondered, would Cesar do on a live stage that he couldn't do better in a taped environment? How many people would really go to an arena to see him? And finally, the thought that broke me: I wondered who on Earth would be in the audience. My curiosity to see who else would go to such a thing had me buying tickets for his Ottawa, Ontario show last week.

Rhona Mitra's Bulldog Has a 'Napoleon Complex' on 'Dog Whisperer' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Nov 8th 2010 12:56AM
Rhona Mitra's Bulldog Has a 'Napoelon Complex' on 'Dog Whisperer'Rhona Mitra is an English-born actress, model and singer. Naturally, her career requires her to travel all over the world. And Rhona acquired Oscar, her seven-year-old French bulldog, specifically because the breed was supposed to be good with traveling. But after a trip to South Africa, things started to go bad.

In South Africa, a pit bull attacked Oscar on the beach; the rival animal pinned him down and drew blood. Now, Oscar is nervous around other dogs -- but this caution expresses itself in the form of violence.

Mitra is afraid that Oscar will escape from her yard and start a fight in her "pit bull central" neighborhood of Venice, California. So on 'Dog Whisperer' (Sun., 7PM ET on Nat Geo), the actress turns to Cesar Millan for help.

TV Stars in Double Trouble on 'Dog Whisperer' (VIDEO)

TV Stars in Double Trouble on 'Dog Whisperer'Casey Anderson is the star of National Geographic's 'Expedition Wild' -- a show where he co-stars with an 800-pound grizzly bear. So you'd think he'd be used to dealing with wild beasts. But on the latest 'Dog Whisperer' (Fri., 8PM ET on Nat Geo), Casey has to deal with an entirely different type of animal -- his own two pet dogs.

Anderson and his wife -- actress Missi Pyle -- are having trouble with their two dogs: Dalmatian J.J. and Rottweiler mix Eleanor. If the canines are kept apart, then things are okay. But of course, J.J. and Ellie are always together -- and are always getting each other riled up. Casey can't handle it, so "dog whisperer" Cesar Millan comes in to help.

'Dog Whisperer': Saving a Dog From Death (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Oct 18th 2010 12:38AM
'Dog Whisperer': Saving a Dog From DeathCesar Millan is known as "the dog whisperer." But often, his technique focuses on reforming human behavior, rather than on the dogs themselves. On the new episode of 'Dog Whisperer' (Fri., 8PM ET on Nat Geo), Cesar meets Jaime Crossman and her dog Chloe, a Collie/Greyhound mixed-breed.

Jaime was warned of Chloe's behavior when she first got her pet. Chloe is extremely aggressive and attacks other dogs on sight. If she can't reach the other dog she takes out her frustration on her owner -- biting and nipping at Jaime's legs.

And speaking of "frustration," another animal trainer gave up on Chloe in despair. He called her a "genetic disaster" and recommended that she be put down. So the stakes are high. If Cesar can't reform Chloe, then she may be facing death.
