Millionaire has been on!

by Amy K. Bredemeyer


The Simpsons
: September 27th

Family Guy: September 27th

American Dad: September 27th

How I Met Your Mother: September 21st.

Little People, Big World: October?

Lincoln Heights: September 14th

House, M.D.: September 21st.

Lie to Me: September 21st.

Jon and Kate Plus Eight: Kate and Kids are at the beach, Jon is overseeing cabinets being put into the kitchen. They did the pudding painting again, and I had to explain to my husband why that would be a fun thing for kids, LoL. The cabinets look great, but I'm kinda bored of remodels on TLC shows (this, the Roloffs, and the Duggars specifically). This was kinda a pointless episode, but it's nice that the kids are enjoying the beach (I remember their first encounter and what a horribly windy day that was!!).

Table for 12: who knows.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager: damn Grace and her lack of respect for personal space. I'm SICK of that. And then Amy thinks Ben had sex because he's acting "grown-up and responsible," LoL. That's ridiculously funny. Dammit I wanna hear about George and Ashley on the road... I wonder if we'll have to wait ten episodes to see flashbacks like we did when we finally got the Ricky-and-Amy backstory. I love the way Amy rolls her eyes all the time, haha. I loved how Amy's dad and Arian's dad talked about whether Ricky is sleeping around. I love that Anne got the car that was supposed to go to Amy, serves that brat right( let's just see how that pans out...)! I think the Adrian/Ricky thing is a little too Melrose Place at this point, so I hope they end it, or someone moves, or something.

Cake Boss: Leaning Tower of Pisa... sweet. Not gonna lie, almost every time I watch an episode, more and more I want a cake done by Buddy and family. I'm not gonna like, I mapped it out, it's an hour and a half from my apartment. If only I had another reason to go to Hoboken... LoL. I was angry at the lobster customer, what kind of best man messes up the engagement party date?? I almost think that he did it on purpose, just to see what he could get away with since Buddy is such a nice guy. I liked the cake, it was neat. I never even heard of isomelt before that!

18 Kids and Counting: they're building the house with the Bates. Um... that's pretty much the whole episode. I did catch the one where they go to Dollyworld and meet Dolly Parton and do a parade, and that was cute. Anna still has issues with not staring at the cameras and smiling awkwardly, but I think it'll eventually come. I did find it strange that the Duggars are so incredibly sheltered that none of them really knew who Dolly Parton was (I suspect Jim Bob knew, and that's why they didn't ask him on camera, LoL), or even that she was a singer. Since she's not exactly a new celebrity, I'm surprised that Michelle at least didn't know, as she grew up in a secular world from what we understand... I'm still missing the 7/14 "Duggars in Dixie," and the 7/28 "Duggars and Bates Reloaded." Apparently upcoming episodes include Duggars and Sports and a DC episode... I really wonder if they were there when I was!!

South Park: October 7th.

Glee: September 9th.Finally caught the pilot. The previous Glee coach seriously sells marijuana now? Geez. I love NewCoach's hair... adorable. He blackmails a football player with pot? This was almost enough for me to turn off this show forever. I don't do corruption, it really makes my blood boil. Do people really paint their dirt green? And if the football player was supposed to already learn that it's not cool to pick on the losers, realism's out the window. Nobody figures that out in a short period of time. It was a sucky experience for the wheelchair kid (timeout - they're doing a really bad job at teaching names in this episode!) to be in the portapotty, tho. And footballer taking the leadership role in the club was even worse. I have mixed feelings about Random OCD teacher... she's quirky and cute, but kinda stinkin' annoying. They need to kill the geekygirl-footballer pre-romance right now, or I'll cut this show out of my life in a snap. Lastly, it shows more like a short film than a pilot... the kids get their junk together and perform a decent number very shortly after the club is formed... I can't believe more than a month has gone by, otherwise there'd be a financial conversation between Teacher and his wife about the $60...

Wipeout: I missed the opening segment, and the second segment didn't offer anything too new. The third event, however, had sweet beam-maze-dodgeball, and I was envious. "Snakephobic" was a funny nickname, as was "Yams Man," really. The kayak component of the Wipeout Zone was a bit peculiar. A rock wall instead of a thin ledge after the 1,000 gallon-er was different, too! Brett was pretty impressive with his time, and I really thought he was rushing... but I guess it was a good thing that he did, otherwise Shannon may have had time to pull out a win! I think she got tired though, because it took her a long time to get out of the ball pit.

16 and Pregnant
: off-season.

Monk: missed it live (was out and about in PA, check out the other blog for details), will catch it online.

The Goode Family: well, ABC canceled it, but there's been hints on the internet that someone else will pick it up! Surviving Suburbia was also canceled, but I'm not really caring about it, since I didn't need a family comedy in my life at the moment. I hope that Courtney gets another role though, she was very entertaining (if you've never seen the show, perhaps you've seen her as the Girl Scout selling thin mints to the guy eating the blizzard... she goes by "Becky" in it).

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire has been coming on every night (for eleven nights). Caught the first night, and it was so-so. I don't like the fact that you get to know the categories ahead of time, and I'm also not a fan of the new lifelines (double-dip instead of remove 2, and the addition of the phone-the-expert).

Also caught some strange children's show called Sushi Pack this week, and it's dumb.
