NBC Lines Up Another Celeb-Reality Show

NBC trying its hardest to find that special celeb-realityBecause we can apparently never have enough celebrity reality shows, NBC is currently developing yet another one.

Realizing that perhaps the very out there circus atmosphere was not their forté, producers have opted to focus on resorting to what they do best: partying!

Well, okay, maybe not the Paris Hilton kind of party, but the more formal kind. A typical episode for Celebrity Come Dine With Me will feature one celebrity who hosts a dinner party for his or her famous friends. At the end of the night, the party will be judged on presentation, food, and entertainment value.

Sounds kind of lame to you, too, right? I mean, I love watching celebrities, but watching them eat and be entertained doesn’t interest me all too much. I say that knowing that the show has found “success” in 16 other countries.

Wednesday Ratings: Celebrity Circus Ends Quietly

Viewers didn’t seem particularly interested about last night’s Celebrity Circus finale. They did, though, care about the Top Ten contestants on SYTYCD. The dancing competition once again helped FOX win both the demos and the viewers.

Wednesday Ratings: SYTYCD Remains Strong

Wednesday night’s ratings landscape showed very little change this week. The three main reality programs (Baby Borrowers, Celebrity Circus and So You Think You Can Dance) were all steady with their previous numbers. This gave FOX another win in both categories.

Daytime Dish: Antonio Sabato Jr. Returns to General Hospital

Antonio Sabato Jr.Since he recently jumped into the celebrities-as-talent pool, this announcement really doesn’t come as a big surprise. After 13 years away, Antonio Sabato Jr. is returning to the fictional city that made him famous: Port Charles.

Starting in July, the contender can be seen on General Hospital: Night Shift, SOAPnet’s spinoff of the ABC hit sudser. For the program’s second season, Antonio will once again play Jagger Cates, a role he originated back in the early 90’s. It was around that same time that both Sonny Corinthos and Miguel Morez (a long-haired Ricky Martin) entered the scene.

Those who can clearly remember watching GH during that time probably recall that Jagger Cates was Stone Cates’ brother. Stone Cates being, of course, Robin Scorpio’s first love. (He died after suffering from AIDS.) Jagger’s presence will surely affect an emotional Robin, who is now pregnant with Patrick Drake’s baby.

This Week on TV (6/16-6/22)

Weeds' Mary Louise Parker

(You can view TV Envy’s Summer Television Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (6/16)
  • The Bachelorette: DeAnna Tells All (ABC, 8pm):  “With six bachelors remaining, assesses the competition to win her heart so far, as do her six beaus.” Apparently revealing their boxers just hasn’t told her enough.
  • Weeds (Showtime, 10pm):  Season premiere. “Nancy, Andy and the boys, on the run after she set fire to their house, head to the beach and a ‘heartwarming family reunion’ with Judah’s grandmother.” Had I known this show was only 30-minutes long, I could have caught up a long time ago!
  • The Mole (ABC, 10pm):  “The contestants, clad in nothing but their underwear, hit the streets of Santiago, Chile and solicit clothing.” At this point, the show could probably use a little skin to ramp interest up a bit.
  • Secret Diary of a Call Girl (Showtime, 10:30pm):  Series premiere. “A high-priced London escort entertains a middle-aged client who enjoys role-playing and has a penchant for being down on the farm.” I think that summary says it all.

Wednesday Ratings: Celebrity Circus Lacks Dazzle

Even though it fared better than the quickly-cancelled Secret Talents of the Stars, Celebrity Circus didn’t do anything to brag about. NBC’s latest reality offering was outdone by a repeat during its hour. By night’s end, FOX was the winner in both the viewers and the demos.
