This Week on TV (10/6-10/12)

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

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

 

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.

MONDAY (8/18)
  • I Want to Work for Diddy (VH1, 9pm):  “Two members from each team must go to Paris and convince a model that Diddy saw in a magazine to come back to NYC with them and pose for .” If you want to flatter a girl, don’t send one assistant - send four.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm): Season 4 premiere. I’m ashamed to say that I know what a ‘Lo’ is.
  • Paranormal State (A&E, 10pm):  “A family in Shrewsbury, Mass., claims to have been living with a spirit for 40 years, and all but one family member believe the spirit is malicious.” If they’ve managed to live with it for 40 years, how bad could this spirit possibly be?
  • Date My Ex: Jo & Slade (Bravo, 10pm):  “Juvenile tomfoolery back at he house irks Slade and may mean the expulsion of a suitor.” Had this been simply adult tomfoolery, things would have been fine.

I Want to Watch Something New

Sean CombsIn case you haven’t heard, VH1 is debuting a new reality series tonight. This time, there’s no dating game or gritty substance abuse - there’s just .

VH1’s premieres tonight at 9pm ET. In this season opener, thirteen strangers (who answered the national wide cattle call VH1 put forth) will be welcomed to Bad Boy (the seat of Diddy’s empire) where they will be interviewed by a panel of Sean John’s most trusted employees. To get to Diddy, the contestants have to get past the panel.

In the show, Diddy (Sean Combs, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, so on and so forth) is searching for a new personal assistant - someone to be at his beck and call and see to his needs 24/7. The cast includes a student, an Iraq war veteran, a personal trainer who likes dancing, a legal assistant, a writer who is a Harvard graduate, a few professional office assistants…and one transvestite.

If you just can’t wait until tonight, VH1 is offering a video preview of the first episode .

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

 

MONDAY (8/4)
  • Teen Choice 2008 (FOX, 8pm):  “ hosts the 10th annual gala honoring achievement in entertainment, sports and fashion.” If kids are wearing things from the 80’s, could that really be considered an achievement in fashion?
  • I Want to Work for Diddy (VH1, 9pm):  Series premiere. “Applicants compete to be Diddy’s next personal assistant.” The more babies you have, the more umbrella holders you need.
  • New York Goes to Hollywood (VH1, 10pm):  Series premiere. “New York moves to L.A. to pursue her dream of becoming an A-list entertainer.” Ashley Dupre has proven that you can live in New York and do the same there.
  • Luke’s Parental Advisory (VH1, 10:30pm):  Series premiere. “Former rapper turned adult-entertainment producer Luther ‘Luke’ Campbell auditions women for his company then gives his teenage son a lecture about pornography.” It’s of the millennium.

WTF?: Danity Kane on Nashville Star

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories:

When the words ‘pop goes country’ are uttered, images of Kristy Lee Cook singing just about anything on run through my mind.

So imagine my confusion when I saw this clip of Danity Kane performing on . Couldn’t they have at least attempted to change up their song a bit? Wasn’t that the whole theme of last night’s competition? Were the girls only comfortable sticking to something they’ve practiced a thousand times over on Making the Band? But really - why was a group formed by Diddy on a show called Nashville Star to begin with?
