posted by mattaug

Right from the beginning of this season of FOX’s reality cooking show Masterchef Christine Ha pulled at more than just the apron strings. The blind chef tugged at the heart strings as well with her amazing cooking ability and humble […]

Foxworthy Wears Bible Belt For Game Show

posted by mattaug

It almost makes TOO much sense, it’s strange someone hasn’t thought of it before. On August 23, Game Show Network rolls out “The American Bible Challenge,” a gameshow testing biblical knowledge, hosted by the tasteful but funny comedian Jeff Foxworthy. […]

Sharon Osbourne Leaving AGT A Year Late

posted by mattaug

Sharon Osbourne is probably leaving America’s Got Talent a season too late, in my opinion. In her seventh season at AGT, Osbourne’s comments to contestants and her laugh/cackle have gotten a bit old and stale. That may sound offensive, but […]

Is ‘Bachelorette’ Winner Jef Holm Nicest Guy Ever?

posted by mattaug

It seems to me ‘Bachelorette’ winner Jef Holm went from being a top-5 candidate to ‘win’ the reality show by doing one thing in particular: Being the nicest guy in the world. The approach worked, as Holm won the heart […]

We Loved You Richard Dawson!

posted by mattaug

My mother loved him on Family Feud and Match Game. I loved him on Hogan’s Heroes. Such was the versatility of Richard Dawson, 79, who died over the weekend due to complications related to esophageal cancer. All that kissing he […]

Drew Carey Just Right For ‘Price’

posted by mattaug

There’s NO WAY Howie Mandel could do it! Drew Carey’s job as host of daytime game-show The Price Is Right, that is. Carey shakes hands, often, gets squeezed … HARD! and seems to love every second of it. The former […]

No Fakin’, ‘Apprentice’ Should Be Clay Aiken

posted by mattaug

Clay Aiken raised over $100,000 more for his charity in The Apprentice finale than his competitor Arsenio Hall. He also got the nod from three of five competitors from ‘The Donald’ when they were asked who should win the reality […]

Did Sanitized Stern Or ‘AGT’ Sell Out?

posted by mattaug

America’s Got Talent has always been one of my favorite shows, especially as an escape from the heat of the summer. I’m not sure if the program will ever be the same for me, however. That’s because of the addition […]

Another “Eclectic” Group On The Apprentice

posted by mattaug

The next season of The Apprentice hasn’t even started and the sparks are already flying on Donald Trump’s hit NBC reality show. One of the contestants, Dee Snider, complained to “The Donald” about members of the other team. “Listen, Mr. […]

How-ard ‘Bout That? Stern On AGT

posted by mattaug

Did NBC take a dive into the cesspool with Thursday’s announcement that Howard Stern will be a judge on the summer talent show America’s Got Talent? The show has had edgy hosts before in Piers Morgan, “The Hoff” and Howie […]

J.R. Martinez: Dancing With The Stars Hero

posted by mattaug

The judges are kind of obnoxious at times and you need to appreciate dance to fully enjoy it, but Dancing With The Stars definitely has one hero to root for this season: Iraqi war veteran J.R. Martinez, who suffered burns […]

Jerry Springer’s ‘Baggage’ More Like Garbage

posted by mattaug

Silly me. I thought Game Show Network was supposed to be a bunch of old ‘classic’ game shows with a few new ones sprinkled in. I turned it on the other night by accident, looking for Nick at Nite, and […]

Travel Channel’s Man Vs. Food Eats At Me

posted by mattaug

When Man Vs Food is on, I will travel to another channel, at least if its toward the end of the program. The Travel Channel show is informative and interesting when it comes to showing how food is prepared and […]

Superior Judge On America’s Got Talent? Piers Morgan

posted by mattaug

Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne are likeable in their roles as judges on America’s Got Talent, to be sure. But only Piers Morgan consistently takes his role seriously as a TRUE judge of talent. That was evident again Tuesday night […]

Mixed Reviews For NBC’s The Marriage Ref

posted by mattaug

I was a terrible official/referee for youth flag football when I tried it once. I am having the same results trying to figure out whether or not I enjoy NBC’s The Marriage Ref, which airs Sunday night on the network […]

The Discovery Channel’s Cash Cab Fits Bill

posted by mattaug

There’s one cab you DEFINITELY want to catch if you hail one down in New York City. Cash Cab, which airs 5p ET on The Discovery Channel, is like Jeopardy minus Alex Trebek and the awkward banter between him and […]

Amazing Race, Amazing Run: Two More Emmy Nominations

posted by mattaug

These days it can be hard to keep people’s attention for two minutes, no less two decades. That’s part of what makes the CBS series The Amazing Race so, well, amazing. The people behind the Emmy’s agree, giving the show […]

America’s (Not) Great Next Restaurant …

posted by mattaug

Perhaps it was the economy. Perhaps the backers, like the well  known Bobby Flay and Curtis Stone, didn’t back it enough. Or maybe three restaurant openings across the country at the same time were too much. Whatever the reason, America’s […]

Time To Stop ‘Gotcha’ Questions On Pageant Shows

posted by mattaug

Can they do the (Miss) World a favor? And the Miss Teen and Miss USA pageants a favor while they are at it? Once and for all stop with the ‘Gotcha’ questions, you know, the ones with gray area intended […]

Nick Cannon’s Dancing Explodes On “America’s Got Talent”

posted by mattaug

Need a laugh or a little lift this summer? Then be sure to catch “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon on the NBC mid-week series. Cannon, husband of pop superstar Mariah Carey, adds comic relief and much-needed segues, usually with […]

You Say Goodbye? I Say Cee Loo To “The Voice”

posted by mattaug

Every summer it seems like the same lament: “There’s nothing to watch on TV!” Well…I beg to differ. Without the programs that are on I wouldn’t have: …nixed the name “Bentley” for my first born. If you watch “The Bachelor” […]

Bachelor or Bachelorette: Where Is The Love?

posted by mattaug

Why do they even bother? All those dates, all those weeks of deciding who to keep, or who to bounce and The Bachelor and The Bachelorette still come down to one thing: The participants on either ABC show never find […]

How Could Howie Mandel Not Laugh … at Himself?

posted by mattaug

It should be rare that I blog about a show twice in three days, but I had to revisit America’s Got Talent after Tuesday’s season premiere. The NBC show didn’t disappoint, with uproariously humorous performances (like the talking bird) and […]

“America’s Got Talent” … Inspiring TV

posted by mattaug

One of television’s most surprising success stories in recent years has been NBC’s America’s Got Talent. The Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel judged show, hosted by Nick Cannon is one of the few programs that can make you […]

“Spray It Ain’t So … I’m A Wipeout Fan!”

posted by mattaug

I have to admit it, when I first saw ads for the ABC show “Wipeout” I thought it would be pretty dopey. I’m not really a big fan of watching people make idiots of themselves on television a la “America’s […]
