Proof SOMETHING is on in June....
OK folks -- we should be hearing from Jackie soon. I spoke to her today and the lilt was back in her voice... now the question is, when will the spring return to her step?
She has something written up that she will post. But it seems the way her desk is configured, it's hard to be comfortable while using the computer for long, so she has just not been on it... and frankly, after a double year of Big Brother, I think that is not such a bad forced rest. Glad to hear things are going well and we look forward to hearing from you Jackie!!!
Entertainment Weekly has devoted a whole issue to Summer TV and since we've been grappling with what that is exactly, I made up a nice little list for y'all to look over.
Weeds: June 16 on Showtime at 10 PM (13 eps) Emmy winning, title speaks for self!
30 Days: June 3 on FX at 10 PM (6 eps) This is a FAVORITE of mine!! From Morgan Spurlock, the guy who did the movie Supersize me. Takes people from one walk of life and makes them spend 30 days doing something or being with people that are polar opposites, to challenge their thinking and grow their compassion, doing the audience the same service. A+!!!
Nashville Star, hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus (Orkmommy do you hear that?) on NBC, starting June 9th at 9:30 PM (9 eps) NBC rescued this from USA channel, this show's 6th season gets good reviews.
Celebrity Circus: NBC June 112, 9:30 PM (6 eps) Joey Fatone hosts an 8 wk boot camp and circus training with c list stars. I'll watch, lol.
Hopkins: ABC, June 16, 10 PM (6 eps) Puts the doc in documentary re: life at Baltimore's John's Hopkins Hospital. Rise in female surgerons makes this the real life Grey's Anantomy.
MVP: SOAPnet, June 19, 11PM (1o eps) set in the bedrooms of fictional pro hockey players , steamy nighttime sudser is from Canada)... for Tom 's and Lars (not that you watch soaps)
Camp Rock: Starts June 20 on Disney Channel, 8 PM ( new movie, probably like High School whatever that thing is that's sweeping the nation)
Army Wives: Lifetime, June 10, 10PM (19 eps) Life on an army base in S. Carolina, part deux. Endorsed by both presidential candidates... um.
Wipeout: ABC, June 24, 8PM. Described as a cross between MXC (huh?), Fear Factor and American's Funniest Home Videos. 24 contestants try to complete a series of physical challenges. Try is the operative word.
The Bill Engvall Show: TBS June 12, 9 PM (10 eps). A family sitcom, season 2, with surprise guests. Trying to bring back Dick Van Dyke kind of comedy says Engvall.
The Singing Office: TLC June 29, 9 PM (9 eps). Joey Fatone is BUSY, as host, joined by DWTS and Spice Girls Mel B as colleges from 16 co's battle for $50,000 singings. Could be funny.
Kathy Griffin's D list: Bravo, June 12, 9 PM (9 eps)
The Mole: ABC, June 2, 10PM (10 eps) -- in case you didn't know.
In Plain Sight: USA, June 1, 10 PM ( 12 eps) Starring West Wing's Mary McCormack. She and her partner, Frederick Weller, relocate people in the witness protection program to New Mexico. Deals with what happens when you have to reinvent yourself. Sounds intriguing.
America's Got Talent: NBC, June 17, 9 PM (Eps TBD)
I Survived a Japanese Game Show: ABC, June 24, 9 PM Why should I try to explain with a title like that? I'll tune in. Jackie, will you?
Ice Road Truckers: History Chanel, June 8, 9 PM (13 eps) Season 2 follows rigs hauling loads over frozen the Arctic Ocean. Deadliest Catch meets Sue from Survivor? Don't let me discourage you with my poor attempt at humor. This is the channels highest rated series (who knew?)
Secret Diary of a Call Girl: Showtime, June 16, 10:30 PM (8 eps). Imported from the UK based on a real life call girl's blog. Billie Piper from Dt. Who stars.
My Boys: TBS, June 12, 9:30 PM (9 eps) This looked like a fun premise last year, but I only caught 1 half ep... if any of you watched it, would love to know what you thought!
Legally Blonde, the Musical: MTV, June 2, 10 PM (8 eps) 10 Broadway hopefuls vie for the starring role played by Reese Witherspoon. Hey, if I were dating Jake Gyllenhall, I'd be singing too.
