Jenelle Chooses Homelessness With Boyfriend on 'Teen Mom 2' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 7th 2011 1:30AM
Janelle Evans, 'Teen Mom 2''Teen Mom 2' (Tue., 10PM ET on MTV) came roaring back for its second season with a vengeance. More specifically, it was the vengeance of Jenelle Evans' mother Barbara. Last season, Barbara made a deal with her daughter that she could move in with her so long as she stopped seeing her boyfriend Kieffer.

Kieffer and Jenelle were both arrested for marijuana possession as well as breaking and entering, which doesn't make him sound like a great influence for the 19-year old or her child. But Barbara caught Jenelle still hooking up with Kieffer, and that was the final straw.

Elka Talks With Kathie Lee Gifford About Man Troubles on 'Hot in Cleveland' (VIDEO)

'Hot in Cleveland' - 'Elka's Choice'Man, it's good to have 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land). What only became a breakout hit because of the hot streak Betty White was on at the time has launched an entire line of new series for TV Land, but the original continues to bring the best laughs.

Picking up on threads from the season finale, Elka struggled to decide which man to choose -- including her not-so-dead husband (Don Rickles) -- while Joy and Victoria dealt with the aftermath of their drunken marriage.

The two of them as a couple, even though they're both straight, proved to be funnier than when other shows have done it in the past. Particularly when Victoria tried to use it to score her a job on the new 'The View' rip-off 'The Chatter,' starring Kathie Lee Gifford.

Tori's Valentine's Day Surprise for Dean on 'Home Sweet Hollywood' (VIDEO)

'Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood'Tori Spelling knows how to break exciting news. For Valentine's Day she gave husband Dean a box that looked like it carried maybe a fancy new watch, or a bracelet. Instead, for the return of 'Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood' (Tue., 10PM ET on Oxygen), the box contained a pregnancy test.

"Oh my God," he shouted in excitement. "For real?" The excitement in his face was so obvious, but still Tori asked him, "Is that okay?"

It's one of the most exciting moments in a couple's life, which Tori acknowledged later. "It's not real until you both acknowledge it for the first time and you share that moment," she said.

First Quickfire Challenge on 'Top Chef: Texas' is Rattlesnake (VIDEO)

'Top Chef: Texas' E01Has 'Top Chef' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo) gone all 'Fear Factor' on us? On last night's season premiere the chefs were given their first quickfire challenge, which was to create a dish using rattlesnake. Yum! (Not.) A very unhappy-looking Dakota confessed that she has "a major fear of snakes," and Ty-Lör probably spoke for everyone in the kitchen when he said, "This sucks!"

Host Padma Lakshmi was really harsh on the hapless contestants, using some most unladlylike language to get them going: "I'd better some some motherf***ing snakes on some motherf***ing plates at the end of this!" What has happened to Padma since she got to the Lone Star State?

As the nervous chefs gingerly opened the ingredient boxes a giant wave of relief washed over them as they realized that they wouldn't be rassling any rattlers after all: The snakes were all dead and skinned. So that makes it all alright then!

'Love & Hip Hop' season premiere'Love & Hip Hop' (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1) kicked off its second season with a special hour-long installment, so they could be sure and catch every nuance and angle of Chrissy laying the beat down on new castmember Kimbella.

At a gathering where Emily broke the news that her relationship with Fabolous was through. It was Kim's decision during this to reveal that she'd been sleeping with the rapper while Emily was pregnant with his baby that elicited the response.

Emily looked almost numb, but Chrissy came unglued. "The audacity of you to think that it was okay to do that to somebody was just blowing my f****** mind, and I lost it," Chrissy admitted later. "It was not my finest hour."

Tamar Shocked by Evelyn's Attack About Disrespect on 'Braxton Family Values' (VIDEO)

Tamar, 'Braxton Family Values' season premiereAs the baby of the family, Tamar Braxton is prone to acting a bit spoiled -- and by a bit we obviously mean a lot. Tired of singing back-up to big sister Toni, she stormed out of a discussion about making a family record on the season premiere of 'Braxton Family Values' (Thu., 9PM ET on WE).

Tamar has been focusing on putting together a solo release, and is ready to be a star in her own right. But it was when their mother, Evelyn, stepped into the argument that Tamar stormed off, and Evelyn took that as a personal slight against her.

Ethan Implements a Family Fire Drill on 'Quints by Surprise' (VIDEO)

'Quints by Surprise' season premiereNever mind that five of their six children are only two years old, Ethan was determined to get the family to master a fire drill on the season premiere of 'Quints by Surprise' (Tue., 10PM ET on TLC). He got wife Casey and seven-year old daughter Eliot on board, but for the quintuplets, it was a game they clearly didn't understand.

Still, crawling through the house and out into the yard can be fun, right? Ethan's goal was to have the family able to get it together and get out of the house in 60 seconds. Casey thought it a pretty laughable and lofty goal.

For this fire drill, they cleared out of the house in seven minutes. It's going to take a lot more practice to tighten that up to a minute!

Pregnant Brennan Cries at a Crime Scene on 'Bones' Premiere (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 4th 2011 5:30AM
'Bones' season premiere - 'The Memories in the Shallow Grave'With the season premiere of 'Bones' (Thu., 9PM ET on Fox) we find ourselves several months into the leading couple's relationship, and it actually works quite well for the show. Maybe skipping all those awkward early moments in a relationship will help the show avoid the 'Moonlighting' curse.

After all, there's still plenty of baggage to sift through, and a lot of that has to do with Brennan's lack of emotions. She tries to be rational in all things, which certainly isn't easy when you're pregnant. We don't blame Booth for taking a picture of her when she broke down crying at a crime scene.

'Chuck' season premiere - 'Chuck Versus the Zoom'Did you catch the season premiere of 'Chuck' (Fri., 8PM ET on NBC) this past Friday? How about when NBC re-airs it this Saturday after those dismal ratings opposite Game 7 of the World Series? It's a whole new game, with a whole new Intersect.

With Morgan as the Intersect, newlyweds Chuck and Sarah have established Carmichael Industries, where they can basically continue doing what they used to do ... only as free agents now. In this season premiere, they had to face off against Craig Kilborn!

'Beavis and Butt-Head' Lampoon JWoww of 'Jersey Shore' Making Pizza (VIDEO)

'Beavis & Butt'-head' - 'Werewolves of Highland; Crying'There is nobody more suited to poke fun at some of the programming on MTV than 'Beavis and Butt-Head' (Thu., 10PM ET on MTV). Thank goodness the show returned after far too many years off the air.

While they still seemed to be able to find music videos to skewer -- we laughed, and agreed, with their assessment of MGMT's 'Kids' video -- they also found themselves having to comment on reality fare like 'Jersey Shore.'

Unfortunately for them, they picked an episode without fighting or sex, as they noted, but rather featuring the cast learning how to make pizza.

Hailey Glassman, 'Sweet Home Alabama''Sweet Home Alabama' (Thu., 9PM ET on CMT) flips it up for its second season, bringing in a bevy of girls to try and woo Tribble Reese. Reese struck out as one of the bachelors last season on 'Alabama,' but is back as CMT follows the 'Bachelor/Bachelorette' formula.

While it was fun for the girls to size up the competition, one from New York was recognized almost immediately. Hailey Glassman was infamously involved with Jon Gosselin when his marriage with Kate collapsed, leading Mandy to dub her "the ultimate homewrecker."

Russell Needs a Loophole to Annul a Mistake on 'Rules of Engagement' (VIDEO)

'Rules of Engagement' - 'Dirty Talk'With 'How to Be a Gentleman' tanking so badly CBS yanked it from Saturdays as well, 'Rules of Engagement' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on CBS) was upgraded to the sweet post-'Big Bang' slot on Thursday nights. And just in time for the premiere. We'll see if it fares any better.

For their Season 6 premiere, we were surprised with the announcement of another engagement. Actually, it looks like Russell skipped that step altogether and married crazy cat-neighbor Liz from upstairs, who was on that cruise with him.

Andrea is Trapped by a Zombie on 'The Walking Dead' Premiere (VIDEO)

'The Walking Dead' season premiere - 'What Lies Ahead'As much as 'The Walking Dead' (Sun., 10PM ET on AMC) is only going to work if it's about the characters and their stories, the fact that we are given reasons to care about them makes the zombie scares that much more compelling.

Then there's the fact that sometimes it's just cool to be stuck on the edge of your seat wondering if and how they're going to get out of this latest mess. Fans of the Robert Kirkman comic book series, and even this show, know that not everyone always gets away, which makes these moments even more intense.

Shawn Faces a Lie Detector on 'Psych' Season Premiere (VIDEO)

'Psych' - 'Shawn Rescues Darth Vader''Psych' (Wed., 10PM ET on USA) returned with more cases and more mistrust from Lassiter, who has just been certain that Shawn doesn't have psychic abilities. In a move that may have just been a long time coming, or a reaction to his discovering that Shawn and Juliet are now a couple.

Shawn did everything he could to try and avoid answering Lassiter's questions, but finally he was backed into a corner as no one was stopping what was happening. As much as they appreciated him, probably everyone wanted to see how this one was going to play out.

"Are you, Shawn Spencer, psychic?" Lassiter asked.

Jonathan Calls Ray at a Bad Time on 'Bored to Death' Premiere (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 11th 2011 3:45AM
'Bored to Death' - 'The Blonde in the Woods''Bored to Death' (Mon., 9PM ET on HBO) continues to confound with its third season premiere. If you just embrace the ridiculousness of Jonathan being anything close to an effective private investigator, you can enjoy it for the bizarre story of three friends that it's become. It's one of the most unpredictable and entertaining shows going.

This premiere saw Ray meeting the child he parented through sperm donation -- sort of -- leading to a very awkward scene where he found a way to quiet the child. We feel bad for the child actor who had to suckle Zach Galifianakis' nipple!
