It’s the first week of January so I am still on the good foot, eating healthy, detoxing from December and cleaning house. Okay that last one not as much but I did work up a good sweat today for a negligible difference in dog hair in the air. I also managed to break the Dyson, but that is not what this post is about. It’s just that I might have had some endorphins going by the time I settled down to watch TV and I was super impressed with my choices.
At 8 I watched Bull, which I still love, but since it comes on at the same time as RHOBH I can’t watch it on Tuesdays at 9.
At 9 I watched what I thought was the premiere of a new series, Star, on FOX. Star is a Lee Daniels (Empire) show and it’s music related like Empire. I am burning out on Empire so I wasn’t really that interested but I decided to give it a shot.
It was so good.
It’s a star-studded cast with Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, Naomi Campbell, Lenny Kravitz too many to name, but my favorite was MISS LAWRENCE! She was AMAZING. So it was like, that looks like Miss Lawrence! And then the scenes are serious at times and you’re like, “Is that Miss Lawrence?” I loved it. This was the second episode, but they did a quick catch up at the beginning that let you know what you needed to know and it was easy to jump right in. Basically the story is about these three really young girls who are trying to break into the music industry as a girl band, and their backstories and the characters they encounter along the way. There is not as much music as Empire, they only sang like one time really and that was at the end of the show. It’s more about all the hazards along the way to getting the chance to sing.
At 10 I watched Match Game on ABC(?)
It was fucking hysterical. It is on at 10 pm because it is really racy. And really funny. I hope they don’t change out the cast at all. It was Jason Alexander, Ice-T, Wayne Brady, Caroline Whatserface and two other chicks. They all meshed together really well and quick one liners were tossed all around. Wayne Brady threatened to take his pants off twice and at one point walked off the stage and flipped off a contestant. It’s not for the faint of heart and Jason Alexander made a joke that will have some folks boycotting …um whatever it is he does now. You really should try to watch tonight’s show On Demand. The contestants are idiots. Which is also awesome. Alex Baldwin is the perfect lecherous replacement for Gene Rayburn. Ice-T gives answers you literally can’t say on TV and you have to wonder what word he wrote down. It’s an hour of laughing which I quite enjoyed.
Just thought I’d share my Bravo Free Wednesday viewing. Now back to your originally scheduled housewife crap, already in progress.
P.S. To Tell The Truth is back for a season 2 without Nene Leakes. Or Betty White. It seems like they are going to have a new panel every week.
