Survivor’s Redemption Island: Rob vs. Russell, Ver. 2

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Survivor, Video,

 


The 22nd season of Survivor will reunite two of the show’s most infamous villains -- “Boston Rob” Mariano and Russell Hantz. The two will be pitted against each other on opposing teams populated with 16 Survivor newbies.

Survivor: Redemption Island is set in Nicaragua and brings a brand-new twist to the well-known reality game: eliminated players get a second chance. Players who are voted off will not leave in this version of the game. Instead, they'll be exiled to Redemption Island. On the island, they'll have to survive until another contestant has been voted off to join them. The two will engage in a duel for supremacy, with the winner returning to the game.

Man vs. Machine: Jeopardy-Style

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Games, Reality, Specials, Syndication, Video,

IBM is taking computer gaming to an epic level.

Monday marked the debut of the supercomputer Watson, a machine so smart it’s capable of playing a game of Jeopardy . . . and maybe, winning it. The three-day game pits the computer against the show’s two greatest champions, Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings, and at the end of Round 1 Watson is tied for first place.

Watson ruled categories like “Beatles People” and “Literary Characters APB,” though it struggled and offered wrong answers to other categories, including “Name the Decade.”

Still, the computer’s prowess was such that at the end of the episode, it’s tied with Rutter with $5,000 in the Jeopardy game bank . . . and champion Ken Jennings trails behind the machine with only $2,000 in the till. Check out the video above to get a look at Watson in action.

VIDEO: Christina Aguilera’s Grammy Fall

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Performances, Videos, Pop,

We don’t know Christina Aguilera personally, but we still think it’s safe to say the year isn’t shaping up the way she intended.

Her personal life is a little messy, with the divorce and all, and now her public life is becoming a tragedy of errors. The songstress bravely performed at the Grammy awards, because the show must go on despite her well-watched Super Bowl flub . . . but now, Aguilera probably wishes she’d stayed home.

The performer managed to belt her way through “Ain’t No Way,” a tribute to Grammy winner Aretha Franklin, without a hitch -- but following the performance, there was trouble. After Christina Aguilera executed her song, she moved a little too aggressively downstage . . . and fell down. Watch the video above to see her sad-but-funny stage spill.

Perry wed Brand on October 23 in a private ceremony in India, and this is the first chance fans have had to see the big event. In the brief video, you can see the couple’s wedding kiss.

After the sweet performance was over, Perry jumped down from her swing to energetically deliver her banner hit “Teenage Dream.”

American Idol 10: Hollywood, Round 1

 


Ryan Seacrest
promised that this year’s Hollywood Week will be twice as hard . . . because this year, American Idol has double the usual amount of contestants. It felt more like triple the amount through the long audition rounds, but it’s finally time to start whittling them down.

Maybe the new panel will begin to develop its killer instinct as the week progresses.

American Idol 10: San Francisco Auditions

 

 

The final audition episode of American Idol’s tenth season began with tears. Many Idol auditions end this way; well, actually that isn’t true. We have to admit, when the pretty blonde girl looked at the camera and cried, “Just because somebody farts, let ‘em finish singing, okay?” we were a little surprised.

Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert came from San Francisco, so expectations for the city ran high.

The peeps over at iFixit got their hands on the new Verizon iPhone 4, and immediately disassembled it to give us the goods on what's changed on the inside.
