Notable names (for my generation): Macy Gray, Mya, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Chuck Liddell, and Melissa Joan Hart.


Where’s Dean McDermott?  I thought he would have been a good contender!  The season starts Monday, Sept. 21 and I believe has a 3-day premiere.


The Hills Season 5 July 29, 2009

Premiere date of Sept. 29 has been announced.  Everyone should start watching Laguna Beach reruns now to catch up on Catty Kristin’s snarky attitude.  Personally, I love her, but she’s not for everyone.  At least she has more to say than, “Yeeeeahhhhh” while running her nails through her fucking bangs every 10 seconds.  Yes, LC, I’m talkin’ bout you.

Odd, though, that they’re moving it from Monday nights to Tuesday.  Wonder what that will conflict with on my chocked-full TV agenda?


Dexter, Utter Drama Fabulosity July 27, 2009

dexter1In case you weren’t aware, Dexter is one of the most compelling dramas to exist on TV in a very long time.  Not only does Michael C. Hall give homicidal rage the perfect warm-and-fuzzy vibe, he’s like a vigilante’s wet dream.  At this week’s Comic Con, some new footage for Season 4 premiered.  If you haven’t seen it, I can’t stress enough what an amazing show it is.  It’s worth the astronomical $20 per month that Showtime charges.  If you don’t want to spring for that, go rent a season through Netflix, watch it illegally online — I don’t care how you see it, just do!

Watch a preview reel for Dexter Season 4 HERE.  Season premiere: September 27.  After last season’s fabulous casting of  Jimmy Smits I thought they would have difficulty topping themselves, but John Lithgow promises to be an amazing addition as the most successful serial killer ever.  Dexter makes murder look so very appealing; almost like a good deed.

It’s been moved up quite considerably.  I originally read it would be in October, but it’s actually now been confirmed for August 26.  Lots of Bravo goodness on the way, is what that means. 


Celebrity guests and big-name chefs include: Natalie Portman, Penn & Teller, Wolfgang Puck, Todd English, Daniel Boulud, Tyler Florence, Laurence Tourondel, and Nigelle Lawson.  Don’t know who half those people are?  You’ve got a couple of options: either do your damn homework or wait til they appear and are introduced by Padma.
