VFTW Gets Behind Speidi of The Hills

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

Spencer Pratt and Heidi MontagYou may want to run for The Hills when you see Spencer and Heidi Pratt on , which launches tonight on NBC. The show, which aired in 2003 (and was subsequently canceled shortly thereafter) has been re-introduced to the schedule, evidently because there aren’t enough good ideas for reality TV anymore. Vote For the Worst is already backing the couple in their usual tongue-in-cheek way, and their reports from the jungles of Costa Rica are the most interesting aspect of the entire show.

The anti-American Idol site has some connection to the series, as Season 6 Idol contender is among the cast. But it’s not Malakar - or his hair - that’s drawn quick attention from the site, even before a single minute of the new season has been aired. According to VFTW, “if we like it, we’ll start voting for the worst as always.” And while nothing is official, they’re already leaning strongly toward MTV’s most famous celebrity pair.

My Boys

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


MONDAY 4/20)
  • Dhani Tackles the Globe (Travel, 9pm):  “The host attempts the Gaelic sport of hurling in Ireland.” Despite what you might believe, drinking is not involved in hurling. At least, not in in this case.
  • Table for 12 (TLC, 9pm):  “Eric and Betty take the entire brood to the dentist.” Betty had been threatening to give them “something to scream about.”
  • Ax Men (History, 10pm):  “Jimmy finds a once-in-a-lifetime log.” That’s all any mom can hope for. Right after seeing their son get married and welcoming their first grandchild.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  “Heidi and a relucant Spencer begin couples therapy.” Spencer had been hoping to meet with Dr. Phil, but he was too busy with the Octo-mom.

The Hills: Were You Surprised?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, MTV, The Hills, Gossip,

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt Though the leading promos seemed to promise otherwise, Heidi Montag did not become Mrs. Spencer Pratt on season finale.

The couple was all set to marry in the Beverly Hills courthouse…until Pratt backed out of the whole thing.

He had a little encouragement to this end from Stephanie, who told him, “You can’t do this. She’s going to regret this. I think this is wrong.”

Not the marriage, mind you, just the wedding. You see, Heidi wants a big wedding. The show has been making a big deal out of this.

And so, Spencer called it off. “I just want to give you the wedding of your dreams that you have been talking about for three years. I’ll deal with it. It’s worth it to be with you the rest of my life. We’ll do it the way you want.”

Queue the white doves, long limos and three hundred guests - the big wedding would make for a great season-opener. Hey, that’s probably what MTV is thinking, too.

The Sound of Music

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

MONDAY 12/22)
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Sara is waiting for news of Michael in a luxury hotel, and she’s not enjoying the luxury.” She becomes unreasonably paranoid anytime someone offers to turn down her bed.
  • Momma’s Boys (NBC, 9pm):  “The guys go on group dates planned by their moms and individual dates they planned.” Until the big move, NBC will just run MTV’s hand-me-downs.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  Season 4 finale. “Lauren and Heidi run into each other and are reminded of why they used to be friends.” I, quite frankly, could use a reminder as well.
  • 17 Kids & Counting (TLC, 10pm):  “The family welcomes the arrival of Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar.” Wake me up when they get to “J.Lo.”

Muppets Christmas

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

MONDAY 12/15)
  • Heroes (NBC, 9:00):  “Mohinder may hold the key to rescuing Hiro.” I’m starting to wonder if Mohinder has the answer to anything.
  • 20/20 (ABC, 9:00):  “Teens put on a show in a chronicle of a Virginia high school production of ‘The Wiz’ that uses video diaries and interviews to follow the emotional drama of students.” Sadly, this is the same network that also put together the barely-watched .
  • Worst Week (CBS, 9:30):  “Sam helps Dick choose the perfect gift for Angela after discovering he gets her the same thing every year.” Just for the record: Some things like spa packages and jewelry can be given over and over again.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10:00):  “Heidi and Spencer consider eloping during a Mexican vacation.” Whatever you do - avert your eyes.

Tom Cruise…and The Hills?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Talk Shows, MTV, The Hills, Video,

In one of those bizarre celebrity pairings, three time Academy Award nominee recently sat down with MTV reality star Spencer Pratt. Er…sort of.

Cruise apparently stopped to chat on The Hills After Show (seriously, yes, there’s an after show) and ended up talking to a picture of (who I guess is way too cool to actually attend the after show). The famously married movie star offered up some pearls of wisdom to the newly-married TV personality.

The Ikki Twins

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

MONDAY 12/8)
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas (ABC, 8pm):  “The gang mounts a holiday pageant as bemoans Yuletide commercialism.” Sorry, Charlie. Not much has changed since 1965.
  • Boston Legal (ABC, 9pm):  Series finale. “Financial problems may force Crane Poole & Schmidt to be put up for sale.” If the economy keeps going the way it’s going, that might not be the only thing ABC has up for sale.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Alan considers early retirement when Evelyn offers to foot the bill for Jake’s college education.” After looking at his latest 401K statement, he then realizes that retirement won’t come anytime soon.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  “Whitney interviews for a job in New York City.” Top resume skill: Able to effectively communicate in short sentences.

MONDAY (11/24)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  After ten weeks, it all ends tonight. Sadly, I can’t even remember the names of the first two eliminated.
  • Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30):  “Sam invites boyfriend Owen (James Tupper) for dinner to meet her parents, but Owen and Howard don’t hit it off.” Seems Howard doesn’t approve of his relationship with Anne Heche either.
  • Valkyrie: The Plot to Kill Hitler (History, 10pm):  “Recalling Operation Valkyrie, a failed plot devised by German officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler.” By choosing this documentary over the version, you’ll be able to save a few more bucks for Christmas.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  “Audrina confronts Lauren and Justin after rumors circulate that the two hooked up.” By “confront,” we mean Audrina has them refer to the television interviews she’s conducted on the topic.
