I’m glad that NBC and the people behind casting for the inevitable Celebrity Apprentice 2 had the smarts to NOT put O.J. Simpson on the show.
After all the problems he’s had with the law in the past few years, he doesn’t deserve to be featured on a national television program. It’d be like rewarding him for being the way he is, and I think there’s one thing that’s pretty obvious…he’s no role model.
Even so, like The Apprentice before it, I don’t think there’s any way that follow up seasons of the show will ever top the 1st season. Piers Morgan was an absolute perfect choice to make that show entertaining, and there’s just no topping that.
So here’s the scoop for TV this weekend….well, Sunday anyway.
Battlestar Galactica- This is the Starbuck episode a lot of people have probably been waiting for. I think they answer something to do with her “destiny” and that painting she recognized….Anyway….it deals with her past at least. That’s all I want to know really….This show has really surprised me….I just hope next season isn’t its last.
The Apprentice: Los Angeles– I just read the candidates compete for a chance to rap with Snoop Dogg….Great…..all the more reason not to watch….Even though I probably will anyway.
The Amazing Race: All Stars- All I’ve found is that they will have rock climbing and whitewater rafting…Now it’s coming back. Isn’t this the preview that teased it as life-or-death or something. Probably just clever editing, showing that team go into the water. Anyway…it’s just good to have the race back!
As usual, it’s a slow Friday around here, and as usual, it’s leading into a slow TV weekend…at least until Sunday.
Sunday, in addition to the Oscars being on, we’ve got the following.
Battlestar Galactica- “Dirty Hands”- I remember in the previews, something about the workers on Galactica going on strike…something about safer working conditions. Should start to pick up because I think I read the season ends in a month.
The Amazing Race- Good to have the race back….things should start picking up this week…and hopefully CBS won’t screw up with the preempting this week. I don’t even remember who got the boot….
No Apprentice again……probably won’t miss it though. It’s not really as exciting as it used to be. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again…nothing, NOTHING can touch Season 1.
So last night actually did turn out to be some decent TV.
First off though, I’m ticked that CBS continues to preempt their schedule with live sports events. The Amazing Race ALWAYS gets cut off now that it is on Sundays, so of course, I missed the last half hour. It was a good half hour, and it’s nice to have the race back in form again….weird seeing all the old favorites back again. Team Guido is back, and Rob and Amber always make the game that much more interesting. They kept trying to sell the grudge between Uchenna and Joyce and Romber….funny. I think Teri & Ian were also a highlight I didn’t expect…pretty funny as well.
The Apprentice continues to be lame, but for some reason I’m still drawn in….their task was pretty bland and boring, and clearly Sureya is taking everything about the show too seriously…he freaked out about the boardroom because apparently everyone was lying and trying to eliminate him. What’d he expect? Everyone to play nicey nicey?
The best of the night was easily Battlestar. At first, I was confused about those interspersed flashbacks, but they really did make sense after all. The mid-air space rescue doesn’t really seem possible in my eyes, but I’ll suspend disbelief for a sci-fi show….definitely the first time I’ve ever been into a show that is as sci-fi as this one….It’d be nice if they’d reveal which character is a part of the final five Cylons….somehow I think they’ll be saving that for the season finale.
Another good night of television tonight…Heroes, Prison Break, and 24. Nice!!
