HELLO … IT’S ME …

HELLO

IT’S ME

AND I’M STILL ADDICTED TO WATCHING TOO MUCH TV …

 

It’s been a while.

Yeah.

Like, a really long while.

Whatevs.

 

I’m not going to waste anyone’s time with details, excuses, or dramatic re-enactments explaining my disappearance. Aint nobody got time for that. This isn’t an episode of Snapped.

However?

And, luckily for y’all…

My undying love – for all things television – has NOT been compromised.

not. even. a. little.

In fact – during my unexplained absence – my love affair with TV has grown even stronger.

 

 

With the newest viewing options; from cable and networks providing ondemand capabilities – to Smart TV’s and RoKu apps, such as: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime?

I’ve inevitably developed a sixth-sense.

For real, people.

I’ve been given a gift. Finding the most awesome television shows, ever.

Some people read fortunes, see the dead, or communicate with the other side. Other people provide stock options, develop retirement plans, or figure out super fancy shit with money. Some people learn. Some people teach. Some people have degrees. And some people just flip burgers or mop floors.

I am not any of those people.

I’m just a television junkie. Committed to all things TV since 1974.

 

 

And I am here to give you the inside info.

  1. I’ll let you know when something is worthy of binge-watching. And I’ll give you the reasons why.
  1. I’ll let you know when something is NOT worthy of binge-watching. And I’ll give you those reasons why.

 

Why?

Because I’m nice like that.

 

 

On the other hand?

I am NOT going to research facts, or spend hours perusing IMBD, or spend one second looking up Rotten Tomato or other notable Critic Scores. I am NOT going to read reviews before, during, or after – watching any show, on any venue, ever.

This is just an unbiased and un-researched television junkie’s blog.

That. Is. All.

 

So…

Brew some coffee, or pour yourself a cocktail, and let’s watch worthy TV, together, again!

Hope y’all enjoy my recommendations, as much as I enjoy watching these shows.

 

* PS: Suggestions are ALWAYS welcome, usually on my Facebook account. Except for anything SyFy and/or History. NO. Because, BORING. Denied.
FYI: I favor crime/suspense/murder/mystery – on any & all venues. And then I will lean on: Comedy, HGTV, IDTV, BRAVOTV, or even Reality TV, when desperate.

So You Think You Can Dance! [SYTHYCD]

Oh, hell yes!

My favorite summer series, ‘So You Think You Can Danceis back with an all new season, this Thursday @8pm on FOX with a two-hour premiere!

SQUEEEE!!

Screen shot 2011-05-23 at 10.39.38 PM

Feel free to judge me, but I am forever amazed with what the human body is capable of doing with some of the dance moves. There is not one element missing from this fabulous show. From the contestants, to the music, the movement, the costumes, [oh the costumes!], the makeup, the hair, the choreographers, the judges, and the passion. All of it, literally moves me to chills and sometimes even tears.

[Is that totally lame? Wait. Don’t answer that!]

Maybe I am biased so in love with this show because I used to dream of being a dancer when I was a little girl. I used to envision myself as a back up dancer on Solid Gold. And I would have given a limb to be a contestant on Dance Fever. I am sure that my hard core appreciation is deep rooted since half of my life was spent dancing.

About The Show:

So You Think You Can Dance, the original dance competition series. The competition will inspire and amaze viewers while dancers skilled in styles ranging from hip-hop to ballroom compete to be named America’s Favorite Dancer.

Lets start with some information on the judges and hosts shall we?

Cat Deeley is the main host, and she is freaking adorable. I just love her Birmingham, England accent and the way she dresses. She is beautiful to look at and a sheer pleasure as the host. She is also one of the foremost television presenters in the UK and has recently become one of the hottest new faces on American TV.

Nigel Lythgoe, is one of the judges that sits on the panel every episode. And I also believe he may be one of the producers? Nigel is always honest and accurate when assessing or judging a performance and NOT in a cruel Simon Cowell kind of way. [But I do love me a dose of  brutal reailty dished out by Simon.] Nigel is kind, generous, and seemingly fair when subject to making decisions about who should be cut from the show.

Mary Murphy, is also one of the judges that sits on the panel every episode. And she IRRITATES me to no end. I cannot stand when she screams. I cannot stand when she looses control. Her laugh cuts into me like nails on a chalk board. But, she does have extensive knowledge and provides excellent training as a world-class technical dance instructor.

Mia Michaels often sits in as a guest judge, and choreographs the most brilliant routines I have ever witnessed. She is MY FAVORITE dancer/judge/choreographer/artist – EVER. Mia turns dancing into inspired and unique works of passion and beauty. Mia Michaels is a choreographic GENIUS. And Mia Michaels was the 2007 Emmy Winner – So You Think You Can Dance: “Calling You”!

I don’t know how many of you saw Mia Michael’s work in previous seasons, but the routine she choreographed: ‘ADDICTION’, was not only heart-stopping, chilling, poignant, and universal…it was The Most Beautiful I have ever seen.

There are many other talented guest judges, and choreographers, that frequently appear on the series,  I just don’t know all of their names.

Anyway…

I am totally SUPER psyched about this. And, I am very much looking forward to watching AMAZING new talent this summer!

American Idol, Season 10 | RECAP and SPOLIER ALERT

Screen shot 2011-01-20 at 1.40.23 AM

Okay ya’ll, as I mentioned in the previous post, no one will ever be able to replace the ‘Dream Team’ that was Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell. At first, I wished they had chosen: Mariah Carey [for the crazy factor] and Harry Connick Jr [for the hotness and humor factor] as the new judges. However, I was very interested in seeing exactly how Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson would interact with each other.  I found myself curious to find out which judge would ‘Bring The Crazy’ which judge would ‘Be Too Nice’ and finally who would end up assuming the ‘Brutally Honest’ role. Because SOMEONE has to crush the dreams of the deranged and delusional. Right?

Well, I watched the Season Premiere, and my questions have been answered!

* Please be forewarned. If you did not see the show, and you do NOT want to know what happened until after you can watch it online, or on your DVR, then I suggest you do NOT read any further. *

But…

If you DID see the show, and you’re ready to discuss all the glory that is the Season Premiere, you’ve come to the right place! And what could be better than STARTING the show in my ‘Home State’? Nothing.

Screen shot 2011-01-20 at 1.40.09 AM

Welcome, to the New Jersey Auditions! This is American Idol

[Day One]

From the moment I saw Jennifer Lopez, I was totally and completely consumed by her stunning beauty, and her incredibly perfect hair. She is simply fabulous. Steven Tyler has seen some better days, his face looks like he may have had a little too much work done, and he’s not aging very gracefully. But don’t get me wrong people. I still love Steven Tyler, and I will always love all things Aerosmith. As for Randy Jackson, well, let’s just say I was just happy to see his familiar face.

Onward.

The first audition was from a seemingly timid girl, Rachel, who was also once a contestant on Season Six, but she was cut the first day in Hollywood. And now she was back to try again. She didn’t deliver a spectacular performance, but that might have been due to the fact that her idol, Jennifer Lopez, remembered Rachel from the earlier season. I think that definitely threw her off. Rachel’s audition was a very nice way to kick off the show.

Next up, Caleb, a young man from somewhere in New York took to the stage. He was singing a song, and it was all kinds of catchy, but in the middle of his audition, it became very clear that Steven Tyler would be the judge ‘Bringing The Crazy’ this season. Steven was so excited by Caleb’s singing, he started howling and banging the table with his hands. He just might be able to fill Paula Abdul’s shoes.

15 year old, Kenzie, was up next with a beautiful smile and a working set of pipes. She was also the third contestant in a row to make it to Hollywood. I started to wonder if they would ever ‘reject’ a contestant and where were the psychos?

And that’s precisely when the very first tone-deaf person arrived on the set.  Jennifer Lopez looked as if she wanted to drop dead, after she had to say, “NO!” for the first time.  She was literally cringing with discomfort. It was painfully obvious Jennifer did not like being put in the position of power that could make or break a person’s whole life. Just when I thought JLo was going to start crying, the next contestant came into audition.

Tiffany, from Morris NJ, had a total full-blown-meltdown the first time she saw Jennifer Lopez. Oh, and did I mention she’s at least half a crazy person. I mean when she popped open her jacket in the midst of her shtick, she looked ridiculous with the stars pasted on her boobies. That? Was um, how you say – so very wrong. But, then she collected herself, and auditioned again, and seriously. And as much as I hate to admit this? I think she did a pretty good job. But I certainly don’t think she’s the next American Idol.

The next contestant to audition was another 16 year old. A young man, who used to be confined to a wheelchair when he was a small child. Or something like that. I tried to listen to his story but I was too distracted, by his gigantic nose. Nevertheless, Robbie Rosen totally rocked singing the song ‘Yesterday’ by the ‘Beatles’. He took his time with each note and executed amazing voice control. His performance was spot-on. And he’s pretty awesome.  I’m a fan.

After a string of completely awful singers, and watching Jennifer Lopez squirm in her chair with every ‘NO’ she delivered, finally, finally, finally, the deranged and delusional came out of the woodwork.  This is the part of the opening auditions that I really look forward to watching.

There was the ‘Boyscout Boy’ who’s name may or may not have been Chris that showed up in an outfit that looked as if he’d just returned from fishing. He’s audition was an epic failure. And his bangs are just shameful.

Then, there was ‘The Guy Who Probably Ate Paint Chips As A Child’ that totally freaked me out with his serial killer glasses way before he ever even opened his mouth to sing a note.

And then? Something really interesting happened.

A ‘Stage Five Weirdo’ and ‘Extreme Britney Spears Enthusiast’ [who may or may not be a meth-addict] named, Ashley, brought her ‘A Game’ with an extra dose of total insanity.  However, in a shocking turn of events, she can ‘kind of’ sing. And by that I mean if she was Ethel Merman, on Broadway. In another shocking turn of events, Ashley managed to win over Jennifer Lopez. But not just because Jennifer couldn’t say, NO, but because Ashley actually made a lucid point when she stated she thinks ‘Pop Music’ really needs to change. She said something along the lines of Pop Music meets Liza Minnelli but the way she said it actually made sense. I think Steven decided to put her through because let’s be honest, crazy loves other crazies. Ashley is definitely going to be a train wreck to watch during Hollywood Week. I am VERY curious to see how far she’s going to make it in the competition.

Next up? Another 16 year old, named Victoria. With her white smile and southern drawl she was just as adorable as she was annoying. However, she managed to win over Randy when she suddenly dropped her accent and threw him a ‘Yo, Yo, Dawg’ complete with Gansta hand gestures.

The last contestant was a War Refugee from Kosovo. Her name is Melinda. I was taken a back by her pretty looks, I was moved by her family history and the story surrounding the way they fled their country, and, her singing voice was pretty good.

american-idol

[Day 2]

20 year old Deyvin started things off. She works in NYC as a singing waitress. She gave a very nice plug for her boss, but I wasn’t expecting very much from her. However, she actually delivered a very good performance. She did NOT do that screaming thing that other try-outs do.  I really liked that she got a golden ticket, and that she was older than 16 years old. I’m going to be keeping my eye on her throughout the competition. She has real potential.

To conceal the sounds emanating from the next contestant, the judges all sang, ‘I’m A Believer’ by the   ‘Monkeys’ and I truly enjoyed watching the three of them interact on that level. That was fun.  And, on ‘Day Two’ they didn’t waste ANY time bringing out the clearly disturbed.

Yo-Gee-Pop, a 25 year old, Japanese man, claimed and believed that he entertained Michael Jackson while in the womb. And then he brought ‘A Party In The USA’ by kicking off series of crazies and bad singers. After many, many, many, bad performances, Jennifer Lopez was finally able to say ‘NO’ and without squirming! I guess all she needed was a little breaking-in.

Once again, another 16 year old auditioned. Her name is Brielle and she’s daddy’s little girl. When her father was diagnosed with throat cancer, her singing was one of the things that kept him going, and fighting for his life.  I was expecting an enormous voice, or something that would give me the chills to come out of her mouth. But, I think she just did ‘Okay’. She is a very sweet girl, and I love how close she is with her father, but she’s lacking ‘Star Quality.’ I sincerely hope she can harness her voice a little better when she gets to Hollywood

Lastly, a young man named Travis auditioned. And guess how old he is? If you said 16, you would be correct.  Travis has a twin brother and they were stuck living in a homeless shelter in the Bronx, NY. He has one of those heartfelt stories that made Ryan Seacrest buckle at the knee. Jennifer saw Ryan wipe a tear from his own cheek. At first Travis sang ‘Eleanor Rigby’ by the ‘Beatles’ and it was lovely, but when he sang the second song, he really unleashed. He definitely has the ‘IT FACTOR’. And, he can definitely hold a note. The boy has some real promise. And talent. He was my FAVORITE of the night.

All in all, it was very exciting.

51 contestants from the New Jersey Auditions made it to Hollywood.

So…

Who was YOUR favorite contestant?

What do YOU think of the new judges?

Will YOU watch the rest of the season?

American Idol, Season 10

Screen shot 2011-01-19 at 1.07.04 PM

Well, well, well. Tonight’s the big night when American Idol returns to television, at 8pm on Fox. I am definitely going to watch this, but only out of SHEER curiosity. Although NO ONE will ever be able to replace the dream team that was Paula Abdul & Simon Cowell, and while I wished they had chosen: Mariah Carey [for the crazy factor] and Harry Connick Jr [for the hotness and humor factor] as judges, I am interested in seeing how Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson interact with each other. And, I am very curious to find out who will be assuming the Brutally Honest role. Because SOMEONE has to be able to crush the dreams of the deranged and delusional. Right?

Will you be watching this season?

Raising Hope

raising_hope_daddy_thumb

Fox broadcast the season premier of it’s new television show “Raising Hope” and of course I had to check it out. And I am so glad that I did. I absolutely LOVED this show. I laughed from the opening scene all the way throughout. The cast is awesome. The writing is excellent. The delivery was spot-on. I am definitely adding this show to my MUST SEE TELEVISION FALL LINE UP!

Don’t believe me? Watch this clip:

About The Show:

At 23 years old, JIMMY CHANCE (Lucas Neff) is going nowhere in life. He skims pools for a living, parties every night and still lives at home with his family, including his MAW MAW (Cloris Leachman); his mother, VIRGINIA (Martha Plimpton) and his father, BURT (Garret Dillahunt).

Jimmy’s life takes a drastic turn when a chance romantic encounter with LUCY (guest star Bijou Phillips) goes awry once he discovers she is a wanted felon. Months later, when Jimmy pays a visit to the local prison, he learns Lucy is pregnant with their baby, and after she gives birth, he is charged with raising their daughter.

Back at home, Jimmy’s family is less than enthusiastic about a new addition to the household. His parents, who had him when they were 15, never knew anything about raising a child and have no interest in trying again. Jimmy may be able to get some help from SABRINA (Shannon Woodward), a sardonic checkout clerk he met at the supermarket if only he can work up the nerve to ask her out. Despite it all, Jimmy is determined to take care of his baby – whom Virginia thinks they should name HOPE.

With very few useful skills but their hearts in the right place, will the Chance family be successful when they step into the unpredictable and immensely challenging world of parenting?

RAISING HOPE is produced by Amigos de Garcia Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The pilot was written by Greg Garcia and directed by Michael Fresco. Garcia serves as executive producer on the series.

Running Wilde

Screen shot 2010-09-21 at 10.50.56 PM

Fox just premiered a new show: “Running Wilde“. And since I am a such huge fan of actor/comedian Will Arnett, I just HAD TO check it out. Sadly, I was unimpressed. Actually, to be perfectly honest, I was quite disappointed. However, before I make any knee-jerk decisions, I am going to give this show one more episode before either adding it or removing it from my Fall-Television-Line-Up.

ABOUT THE SHOW:

From the Emmy Award-winning creator and the star of the critically acclaimed FOX series “Arrested Development” comes RUNNING WILDE, a romantic comedy starring Will Arnett as Steven Wilde, a filthy-rich, immature playboy trying desperately to win (or buy) the heart of his childhood sweetheart, Emmy Kadubic (Keri Russell), the über-liberal humanitarian who got away – all told through the perspective of a 12-year-old girl. Steve Wilde has never performed a selfless act. But why should he? He’s rich! The son of an oil tycoon, Steve hasn’t had to work a day in his life and has always gotten everything he’s wanted – with one exception: the love of Emmy.

The daughter of a former Wilde housekeeper, Emmy is an earnest do-gooder who has spent her adult life trying to save the world. And though Emmy is content living with an indigenous tribe in the Amazon rainforest, her 12-year-old daughter, Puddle (Stefania Owen), just wants to be a normal kid experiencing her adolescence in a normal place. And she would speak up except for the fact that she hasn’t spoken in a few months.

When Wilde Oil’s expansion in the rainforest threatens her adopted tribe, Emmy decides to attend Steve’s self-thrown “Humanitarian of the Year” award ceremony in hopes of convincing him to help her cause… and also maybe because she still has a thing for Steve. But same-old Steve is unwilling to help because fighting Wilde Oil (a/k/a Dad) means putting his meal ticket in jeopardy.

Rather than run the risk of letting Emmy slip away again, Steve pulls out all the stops to win her heart. To do so, he enlists the only other people in his life who can help: Oxford-accented neighbor and “frenemy” Fa’ad Shaoulian (Peter Serafinowicz); Migo Salazar (Mel Rodriguez), Steve’s employee/sidekick/errand-boy; and (reluctantly) the scheming Mr. Lunt (Robert Michael Morris), Steve’s “manny”–turned-secretary as well as the biggest protector of Steve… and his own job.

Despite having everything he ever wanted, Steve knows he can’t buy love and happiness, which falls in sharp contrast to Emmy, who has nothing but love and happiness. So with Emmy committed to doing good for nothing, and Steve being a good for nothing, will this hopelessly mismatched pair ever be able to reconcile their differences?

Emmy’s daughter Puddle narrated the season premiere, in a very Arrested Development kind of way, but I felt like I was waiting for something, ANYTHING, to happen. And nothing ever did. Oh well. I guess I’ll see what happens next week!

GLEE!

Screen shot 2010-09-21 at 10.34.05 PM

Fox’s hit show GLEE premiered it’s second season – and IT WAS AWESOME! Honestly, this is one of THE BEST SHOWS to hit television in YEARS. However, I am not going to write about the premiere because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone that hasn’t had the chance to view it.

Fans can subscribe to their YouTube right HERE. Or follow them on Twitter HERE. And don’t forget to “Like” their FaceBook HERE!

How many of you my dear readers ARE watching it? And if so, would you consider yourself to be more of a “Gleek” or more of a “Cheerio”?

If you haven’t watched it, click HERE to see full episodes online!

ABOUT THE SHOW:

Entering its sophomore season, GLEE is a biting musical comedy that has quickly become a pop-culture phenomenon. The highest-rated new scripted series of the season boasts critical acclaim, a loyal fan base of “GLEEks,” two certified Gold albums, more than 10 million song downloads and an incredible 19 Emmy nominations – earning it the distinction of being the most-nominated series of the year. To top it off, the genre-defying, award-winning series has been picked up through its third season.

After GLEE was recognized by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with nominations in all major categories, the show took home four awards, including one for Ryan Murphy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series and one for Jane Lynch for as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

In its freshman year, GLEE was also honored with a Peabody Award; a Golden Globe for Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical; a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series; and a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy. The cast has performed for the President and First Lady at the White House, appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” sang the national anthem at the World Series and graced the covers of Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone.

GLEE follows a group of eager and ambitious students as they strive to outshine their singing competition while navigating the cruel halls of McKinley High. Although New Directions lost at Regionals, they now have their sights set on making it to Nationals and defeating their arch rivals, Vocal Adrenaline.

The glee club’s fearless leader is WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison), a talented young teacher with hip-hop skills and a heart gold. New Directions’ aspiring stars include RACHEL (Lea Michele), a pitch-perfect singer with an unfaltering determination to be popular; FINN (Cory Monteith), the heartbreakingly cool quarterback who struggles with his personal life; KURT (Chris Colfer), the baby-faced soprano with a fierce eye for fashion; MERCEDES (Amber Riley), a powerhouse vocalist whose diva attitude rivals the greats; ARTIE (Kevin McHale), a physically disabled performer with killer vocals and a dream to dance; and TINA (Jenna Ushkowitz), a goth chick with a soft side. There’s also arrogant and cocky crooner PUCK (Mark Salling); ice-cold queen-bee-turned-teen-mom QUINN (Dianna Agron); and the dynamic dimwitted cheerleading duo of BRITTANY (Heather Morris) and SANTANA (Naya Rivera). With his heart in the right place, Will is determined to help the kids take Nationals, but at every turn he must battle with his nemesis, SUE SYLVESTER (Jane Lynch), the conniving cheerleading coach; and his evil ex-wife, TERRI (Jessalyn Gilsig). Mr. Schuester’s only allies at McKinley are OCD-afflicted guidance counselor EMMA PILLSBURY (Jayma Mays) and supportive parents like Kurt’s dad, BURT HUMMEL (Mike O’Malley).

In addition to the regular cast, GLEE has featured guest appearances by a wide range of talented performers, including Kristen Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Molly Shannon, Olivia Newton-John and Neil Patrick Harris, who won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on the show.

The second season of GLEE will include guest appearances by comedy icon Carol Burnett, pop superstar Britney Spears, heartthrob John Stamos, Broadway sensation Cheyenne Jackson, international recording artist Charice and newcomer Chord Overstreet.

HOUSE – Season Premiere

Ah, yes. “Its The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year…” And by that I mean this fall line-up is chalk-filled with old and new television Season Premieres. I can barley keep up!

Screen shot 2010-09-20 at 11.21.09 PM

About The Show:

House is an innovative take on the medical drama, solves mysteries where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients. DR. GREGORY HOUSE, devoid of bedside manner and dealing with his own constant physical pain, uses a cane that seems to punctuate his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. His behavior often borders on antisocial, but House is a brilliant diagnostician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts afford him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he thrives on the challenge of solving medical puzzles in order to save lives.

I have loved watching the series HOUSE since day one. However, I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed with this Season Premiere. I will NOT give away any spoilers to those who may have not seen it yet. But, I will say, the show didn’t really hold my interest until the character Wilson showed up half-way through the episode. I am truly hoping the rest of the season has more “bite” than the premiere. Especially since it’s up against some tough contenders like another American Favorite:  ‘Dancing With The Stars‘.

Feel The Farce As “Family Guy” Skewers ‘Star Wars’

image001

Return to the Griffins’ version of that galaxy far, far away as their freakin’ sweet saga continues with “Family Guy: It’s A Trap!” – arriving exclusively on Blu-ray and DVD December 21 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. In the third installment of the hilarious Star Wars satire – following 2005’s “Family Guy: Blue Harvest” and last year’s “Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Dark Side“ – the Griffins reprise their intergalactic roles in an outrageous retelling of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

image002

Fans received an early peek of the epic farce at San Diego Comic-Con as Seth MacFarlane previewed 10 minutes of “Family Guy: It’s A Trap!” during the “Family Guy” panel this past weekend.

In this spectacular and offensively uproarious final chapter, Luke Skywalker (Chris) and Princess Leia (Lois) must travel to Tatooine to free Han Solo (Peter) by infiltrating the wretched stronghold of Jabba the Hutt (Joe), the galaxy’s most loathsome and dreadful gangster. Once reunited, the Rebels team up with a tribe of Ewoks to combat the Imperial forces on the forest moon of Endor. Meanwhile, the Emperor (Carter Pewterschmidt) and Darth Vader (Stewie) conspire to turn Luke to the dark side, and young Skywalker is determined to rekindle the spirit of the Jedi within his father. The Galactic Civil War has never been more outrageous, as the Rebel forces gather to attack the seemingly defenseless and incomplete second Death Star in the battle that will determine the fate of the galaxy.

Adding to the fun, “Family Guy: It’s A Trap!” is loaded with hysterical cameo voice spots – including Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn reprising their roles from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” Adam West (“Batman”), Carrie Fisher (Star Wars Trilogy) and conservative talk radio juggernaut Rush Limbaugh as the voice of the large carnivorous repto-mammal, the Rancor.

“The fan base for “Family Guy” and Star Wars, both enthusiastic, have embraced the first two hilarious spoofs,” said Mike Dunn, President of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. “Bringing the distinctive storylines together for the trilogy of parodies has been enormously successful and lends itself to create unique home entertainment releases.”

As an added bonus, “Family Guy: It’s A Trap!” will also be available in Blu-ray and DVD triple-packs featuring all the “Family Guy” Star Wars spoofs…the perfect gift for the holiday season!

Um. Only “The Best Show EVER” also known as HOUSE will premiere TONIGHT on Fox @ 8/7c.

And, with a TWO HOUR special!

[Have I ever mentioned how much I love September television?]

I’m already wondering:

  • What’s going to happen to House now that he’s been admitted to the mental hospital, presumably for detox?
  • Will Cuddy finally have a chance this season?
  • How will things go for Cameron & Chase, now that they are newlyweds?
  • Will the team dynamics change with Kutner long gone?
  • What’s the future for Foreman and for Thirteen’s illness?

History & Milestones:

Celebrating its 100th episode milestone on Feb. 2, 2009, HOUSE is the winner of three Emmy Awards, including an award for creator and executive producer David Shore (Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series). The series has been honored with 17 Emmy Award nominations, including three for Outstanding Drama Series and three for Hugh Laurie (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series). The series received the 2006 Humanitas Prize for the episode “Three Stories” and three Humanitas finalist honors, one each for the 2007 episode “House vs. God” and the 2005 episodes “Everybody Lies” and “Damned If You Do.” Additionally, HOUSE received two Golden Globe Awards for Laurie (Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series) and two Screen Actors Guild Awards for Laurie (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series) as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series) and two Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series, Drama, and an NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Drama Series.

The show has also been honored by the American Film Institute as one of the TV Programs of the Year, and it received a Peabody Award for Best of Electronic Media, as well as two consecutive People’s Choice Awards for Favorite TV Drama, a People’s Choice Award for Hugh Laurie (Favorite Male TV Star) and the Writers Guild Award for Episodic Drama (“Autopsy”).

Where We Left Off?

Season Five ended with more than 100 episodes produced, House and Wilson have repaired their friendship in the aftermath of Amber’s death, Cuddy is fulfilling her dream of motherhood after adopting an infant girl, Foreman has started a relationship with Thirteen who continues to battle the deadly Huntington’s disease that threatens to shorten her lifespan dramatically, while House and Cuddy continue to determine exactly what type of relationship they share — if any.

House-isms:

“Her lips say no, but her hormones say ‘Oh my God, yes, more.”

“That’s the breakfast of relationships; most important one of the day.”

“It’s a universal daisy chain of peace and love that throws buns at people.”
