Beyond Runway ...
What does Andy Cohen watch on TV? Read on.
Here's some headline news: there is actually stuff on TV besides "Project Runway"! I got a ton of messages Wednesday night yelling at me for Bravo's airing a Runway rerun. Sorry Charlies, but wasn't it an exciting opportunity to go fishing for fresh tv in your TiVo's?
That's what I have been doing. I'm still watching KATIE COURIC'S EVENING NEWS and I like it. There's something great about recording that show and watching at 1 in the morning. There's only about 10 minutes of actual news so it is not a time committment. The only thing I don't like is the kicker pieces about extraordinary Americans. I can't. I like that lady and her frosty lips tucking me in at night so that's when I watch it.
I saw STUDIO 60 when Bravo replayed it Wednesday night. Loved it!
I have never seen WEST WING so I can't speak to the genius of Aaron Sorkin, but I am really excited to get into this show. And I also can't wait for 30 ROCK. Not only do I work in the building, the show looks funny.
I am into SURVIVOR: RACE WARS in a big way. I was so upset when the African Americans lost at the end of last week's episode. Seeing them lose made the whole race division sting to me for the first time in the hour. But last night (spoiler alert.....) the African Amer's triumphed, building their fire and winning the immunity challenge, which I still fastforward through. The challenges are so complicated and boring and I can't understand them without Jeff Probst's play-by-play.
Yul, the Asian management consultant, got sent to exile island and figured out the puzzle and found the immunity idol after about 2 hours on that island. (Insert judgement). In Latin America-land, Oscar the waiter threw the challenge so his team culd get rid of Billy the snoring heavy metal Puerto Rican musician.
At tribal council, Jeff Probst couldn't believe the Latinos had thrown the competition. (Insert judgement...) Billy said he knew the others had thrown the game to get him out and then he claimed he had love at first sight w/ candice from the caucasion team at an immunity challenge. It was very, very weird. He got voted out. The white people: Boring, Boring, Boring!! (Insert judgement.) By the way, I would love to see a group of Runway Allstars play Survivor. How amazing would that be, seriously?
I am predicting that QUEER EYE Jai Rodriguez is going to win CELEBRITY DUETS! His duet last night of "Lady Marmalade" with Miss Patti opened the show and blew all that's come before and after away. I fast-forwarded through Lucy Lawless and Richard Marx because I don't need to hear that. Likewise Hal sparks and Dee Snyder. I had to fast-forward.
Marie Osmond and David Foster are in a fake war for the cameras. It works better w/ Donny. I love it that Marie is going for it and giving actual critique. I love Marie. I can't say it enough. The pairing of Cheech Marin with my man, Mr. Al Jareau, was a surreal, insane, bound for YouTube moment. I love Al Jareau, by the way, and he's still working his Jerreau'ness with jaunty hat and all. Chaka Khan and Alfonso Ribeiro were actually kind of Amazing singing "Through the Fire". Chaka sounds UNbelievable and, though covered in some kind of fringe poncho, was a superstar!
The show ended with a second helping of Miss Patti who sang "On My Own" and, threw out an "I love you" to the audience during the song. You will not find me criticizing Miss Patti LaBelle, but I gots to say she was sporting two unfortunate wigs, the second being of a Geisha origin.
And what are YOU watching on TV?
