On Gear Live: Geared Up: Predictions for the Upcoming iPhone Event with Sara Dietschy


 

MONDAY (7/26)
  • Intervention (A&E, 9pm):  “A woman battles an eating disorder that is combined with a drinking problem.” Those diet shakes can be hard to digest.
  • Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 10pm):  “Jane’s mother () plays Cupid and arranges a surprise date for her daughter.” She insisted the guy was a good fella.
  • James May’s Toy Stories (BBC, 10pm):  “The host tries to build a record-breaking model-train track that’s 10 miles long and links two towns.” It’s a train even Ricky Stratton and his father would be envious of.

MONDAY (7/19)
  • Behind the Music (VH1, 8pm):  “ is profiled through interviews and archival clips. The R&B star discusses his relationship with TLC’s Chilli.” I’d hate to say things are still “chilly” between them, but…
  • Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 10pm):  “Jane clashes with her new boss (Donnie Wahlberg).” You have to hang tough with that guy.
  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  Season finale. “The three beauties left are paired with celebrities to party the night away. They then don’t get to sleep it off, but instead must film a commercial about Las Vegas. One player folds like a house of cards from the sleep deprivation.” Beauty sleep is for suckers who can’t afford plastic surgery.

MONDAY (7/12)
  • Kid in a Candy Store (Food, 8pm):  “Creative cakes are sampled, including deep-fried cupcake sundaes from a sweets shop in Somerville, Mass.” Desserts for people who need to multi-task.
  • Cake Boss (TLC, 9pm):  “A 6-ft. cake in the shape of a sub sandwich is made for a local deli’s 100th anniversary.” Unfortunately, Jared Fogle won’t be able to eat it.
  • Warren the Ape (MTV, 10:30pm):  “Warren pretends he’s gay, thinking it will do wonders for his acting career.” He clearly doesn’t subscribe to Rupert Everett‘s newsletter.

MONDAY (7/5)
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  “Ali questions some of the bachelors’ sincerity. Indeed, two of them seem to be as focused on each other as they are on her.” Well, they did they say they came there looking for love.
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Amy runs into Bristol Palin in her dorm, and soon she realizes the music program is for teen moms.” Palin clearly wasn’t accepted into the program for her actual talent.
  • Incredible to Edible (TLC, 10pm):  “A couple think they can cook, but their inedible boiled fish and microwaved eggs prove otherwise.” Oh, hold up - you can microwave eggs?

Anthony Bourdain

“Just like there’s not much music on MTV, there aren’t many chefs on . Their brand is really, I think it’s clear, not chef-driven. For a period of time, the last thing they wanted, it seemed, was anyone who actually worked in a restaurant or cooked professionally or was authoritative on the subject of food.  I think they figured out very quickly that their audience liked to look at barbecue and certain types of foods, particularly familiar ones, that they could imagine sinking their teeth into, so there’s the sort of porn aspect. Then of course, they wanted friendly familiar personalities that made them feel better about themselves.”

-No Reservations explaining why he’s not a huge fan of the Food Network. (His show airs on the Travel Channel.)

MONDAY (6/14)
  • Little People (TLC, 8pm):  “A county inspector pays a surprise visit to Roloff Farms and threatens to shut it down before the start of pumpkin season.” A reopening appears as likely as the Great Pumpkin’s arrival.
  • Cake Boss (TLC, 9:30pm):  “A cake shaped like a pink hearse is created.” It’s like they say, you’ll end up in what you eat.
  • The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo, 10pm):  “It’s in the cards that Jacqueline will host a poker night, where Danielle’s ex-flame spills more scandalous gossip.” Thank goodness for staged sex tapes, otherwise these ladies would have nothing to talk about.

MONDAY (6/7)
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  “Fourteen bachelors remain, nine of whom accompany Ali to a Barenaked Ladies performance (and are cast in one of the band’s videos).” If one of them passes a drug test, they could also become Barenaked Ladies’ latest singer.
  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  “Penn and Teller teach the contestants a magic trick, but swear them to secrecy on how it’s done. Will anyone give it up when questioned by a reporter?” More importantly: Will they give up the Everlasting Gobstopper?
  • Mega Bites (TLC, 10pm):  “A chef teams up with an engineer and a food scientist to build the world’s largest Rice Krispies Treat.” The bomb squad was mistakenly dispatched after reports of large snaps, crackles and pops.

MONDAY (5/31)
  • King of Dirt (DIY, 9pm):  “A couple celebrate their wedding anniversary by having the front yard of their home landscaped.” For their first anniversary, it was their bodies they had landscaped.
  • Kendra (E!, 10pm):  “Kendra works on her tell-all autobiography, which Hank believes is too revealing.” He thinks she should just stick to picture books.
  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  Season premiere. “Ten contestants pose in lighted glass cases on the Las Vegas strip, thinking they’re competing for the title ‘The Face of Vegas,’ while actually both their outer and inner beauty are being judged.” The contestants, like Vegas, have a stylish exterior but are vacant inside.
