MONDAY (5/17)
  • 10 Things I Hate About You (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Joey gets a callback for a reality show!” Canceled shows call for desperate measures.
  • Romantically Challenged (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Perry takes a stay-at-home vacation, which irritates unemployed roommate Shawn so much that Shawn is willing to take a job - virtually any job.” This is what Perry would call a ‘productive vacation.’
  • The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo, 10pm):  “Sick of the Jersey-girl superdramas, Dina reaches out to a Zen master to remove all the negativity from her life.” In different parts of Jersey, problem-solving “Zen masters” go by a different title.

MONDAY (6/29)
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Ben tries to figure out where he fits in Amy’s life.” Well, the role of babysitter is always open.

  • Cake Boss (TLC, 10pm):  “Buddy creates an ornate wedding cake filled wtih live birds.” Watch out - that might not be fondant you’re eating.
  • Dance Your Ass Off (Oxygen, 10pm):  “Twelve plus-size contestants infiltrate Los Angeles in a competition to shed pounds by means of dance and diet in this 10-part unscripted series hosted by .” In other words, a cutthroat version of Sweatin’ to the Oldies.

Paris Hilton's My New BFF - Season 2

It’s summer, and that can only mean one thing: Paris Hilton is hot to trot after a new crop of hero-worshiping reality contestants, all anxious to be her BFF…for one season, at least. has been renewed by MTV for a third season. This means, at least, that Paris won’t have to tolerate the winner of the show for very long.

But at the show’s Season 2 premiere, the winning contestant remains a far-away decision. First, it’s time to meet this group of -loving hopefuls.

Paris Hilton and BFFs

“This season I made it like a sorority, the Paris sorority,” said Paris Hilton of the second season of her MTV show, , which premieres tomorrow. Though the heiress found a friend in Season 1 winner Brittany Flinkinger, and subsequently in the UK version of the show, she’s apparently still on the hunt.

Lil’ Kim, Kathy Griffin and a handful of ’s celebrity pals will make guest appearances on the show, which will renew her quest to find a pal among a dozen or more male and female contenders. Last season, Paris’s quest began with makeovers, challenges and very quick eliminations.

Paris Hilton and Her New BFF

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Specials, MTV, Editorial,

MTV didn’t pull any punches when it came to the end of their reality project. First, there was the hour-long reunion show, a spectacle replete with cat fighting and mini-games. Next, there was the drama-infused finale, where Paris was asked to choose a BFF in either Brittany or Vanessa. But wait - there’s more! After the very drawn-out conclusion, MTV aired a 30-minute special showing Hilton’s friends welcoming the new BFF into their midst.

It was two and one-half hours of TV. And I watched it all.

MONDAY (11/10)
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Chuck chances upon his ex-flame (Jordana Brewster) and embellishes his status in life to impress her.” We’re talking about a girl who starred in D.E.B.S.. He shouldn’t try too hard.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Gretchen gives Michael the rest of the bird book, but he suffers another seizure after deciphering it.” That pretty much sums up my feelings about bird books as well.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30):  “Sam is sentenced to community service, where she meets a troubled young woman () and decides to help turn her life around.” Sam has now become the better-looking version of Earl Hickey.
  • 17 Kids and Counting (TLC, 10pm):  “Jinger takes her driving test; the family celebrates Michelle’s birthday and responds to viewer questions.” Uhh, I have a question. Jinger? Seriously?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

MONDAY (10/6)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Alan tries dating two women at the same time.” I remember when Ducky was pining over just Molly Ringwald. He’s all growns up now.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Sara learns something disturbing about Michael.” She realizes that if it weren’t for his steely gaze and tattoos, Michael would just be your average white guy.
  • I Want to Work for Diddy (VH1, 9pm):  Series finale. “The final contestants train with Marcus Buckingham and are interviewed by Diddy.” If they mistakenly admit their loyalty for McCain, Diddy will retreat back under the covers.
  • Exiled (MTV, 10:30pm):  “A hip hop star’s daughter is sent to the island nation Vanuatu to live in a bug-filled jungle in the shadow of an active volcano.” Had she wasted her youth watching Survivor: Vanuatu, she would have been prepared.

Paris Hilton’s My New Obsession

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, MTV, Editorial,

Paris Hilton

Last night saw the premiere of Paris Hilton’s new MTV reality show (which has been getting buzz for months). Hilton chose “sixteen girls and two boys” to become her potential platonic party partner for . I expected that I would hate it…but I just can’t escape the magnetic pull of unoriginal, fairly bad reality TV. That’s right, I said it - I’m an MTV fan.

I was instantly under the spell of Hilton’s friend search, a premise itself which is obvious malarkey. Casting is already under way for the second season, so I’m guessing no true best friendships were forged during this first one. Or perhaps , like me, can see the immediate potential of a show filled with good-looking twenty-somethings (most of whom seem as dense as bricks) that hero-worship the vapid Miss Hilton. It’s so far out of actual reality, it’s just crazy enough to be reality TV.

Paris Hiilton Seeks British Best Friend

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, MTV, News,

Paris HiltonI apologize, World. is going international.

Although her new reality show, , hasn’t yet debuted, the famous hotel heiress has already opted to try again. Hilton, believing her American choice won’t fit in overseas, has decided to do an entire new search in the UK.

Starting this October, Paris will start taping a British version of her fall program. While the concept will remain the same, the title will get a slight adjustment: Paris Hilton’s New Best Friend. On both programs, a group of wannabes fight for the opportunity to become a fixture on the celebutante’s side.

In a statement released today, Hilton tried her best to explain the upcoming mission:

“Everyone knows I love LA, but London, watch out—I’m coming to town and bringing my fast-paced life with me. I’m in the UK all the time, but of course I can’t bring all my friends, so I’ve decided to look for a new BFF across the pond. I need a best friend who is hot, who can keep up with me, and most of all, who is real and won’t be a backstabber. I’m not leaving London until I find that amazing girl or guy who can meet the challenges of being my British bestie!”

Paris Hilton on Paris

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, MTV, Gossip,

Paris Hilton‘s new reality show (in it, she’ll be searching for a new best friend) has not yet hit the small screen, but fans can keep up on the progress through her MySpace blog.

That is, you can keep up with it if you can get around the glaring spelling and grammatical errors - delivered in a sort of stream-of-consciousness fashion. Yet, amazingly, the heiress has penned a best-selling book. Hilton reports that shooting her show is “quite the experience, these people are amazing!” She adds: “Everyone of the contestants is very special in there own way,” and says all are “having the best time.”

According to Hilton’s blog, she took “some of the contestants” with her to Japan and Las Vegas. She cautions, however, “not everything is all fun and games.” She talks of “brutal” challenges and the fact that she doesn’t like the eliminations.

Paris added a note on her personal life, and actually threw in a plug for boyfriend Benji Madden’s blog. The show, by the way, will be coming to MTV in September.
