Summer is the time for reality/game show television. I never considered myself a fan of reality/game shows until I was talking with the girlfriend and roommate the other night.
It came up how we all like America’s Got Talent. So we set up the DVR to record all first run episodes of AGT. Trying to take David Hasselhoff serious when he is telling someone they have no talent is reall about as good as it gets. Well, right next to the fact that the show is called America’s Got Talent yet two of the judges are from Britian and the third is most popular in Germany. Not to mention the host is Jerry Springer.
Come on! He obviously knows talent when he sees it.
Then the roommate said how we was watching Last Comic Standing and was laughing so hard even watching it by himself (which I guess he never does). I said how much I loved the show too and then, of course, the DVR was set to record LCS. There are some really good comics on the show although after Wednesday’s semifinal they sent 3 of my favorites home. Hopefully next week’s show keeps the best around.
Then the girlfriend mentioned how great of a show The Singing Bee is. And she is right. It is a wonderfully entertaining show and my new favorite of the three. If you haven’t watched it, you’re missing out. It’s hosted by Joey Fatone (yeah, of Backstreet Boy fame). He’s highly entertaining. He even danced out to one commercial to “Bye, Bye, Bye.” (Also, he says “sweet” about every fifth word. Watch for it. You’ll be impressed how he squeezes it into ever sentence.)
How could not want to watch a show with this guy as the host
Anyway, the show is great because it’s only a half hour long and they get right into it and don’t mess around like every other reality/game show. The house band sings a song and then stops and a contestant has to sing the next line. It sounds easy and boring but it’s anything but. And after watching it for a few weeks, you won’t listen to the radio the same. You’ll think, if I was on the show, would I be able to sing the next line. Trust me. It’s great. Check your local listings but it should be on 9:30 on Tuesday nights.
So as much as I hate to admit it, I am a reality/game show fan, at least for this summer. So check out these shows and just try to listen to the radio after watching The Singing Bee.

Sorry to all seven of my readers for not posting something yesterday. I had nothing really to say and I wasn’t in the mode to to try and make something out of nothing. Not too much different today but when I went home for lunch something really bothered me.
What’s wrong with Skip Bayless? I’ve found the guy more annoying than the closing-talking, always-have-to-have-his-arm-around-you-when-talking-to-you drunk, even since started on Around The Horn and Cold Pizza. I mean the guy’s just an idiot and thinks he’s the greatest thing to happen to sports since the jock strap. He always take the opposite opinion of the general population, even when it’s more wrong than buying a $25 filet and covering it with A1 sauce.
Nothing strikes home that point more than his opinion on LeBron James. For whatever reason he hates LBJ. He always has and I’m sure he always will. He calls him the “The Prince” instead of “The King.” How creative Skip. He knocked LeBron’s playoff performances, even down playing his 48 point, final 25, and all the overtime points game against Detriot.
The offseason hasn’t stop Skip from hating on LBJ. It was announced LeBron will host Saturday Night Live’s series premiere in the fall. The other five people on Cold Pizza this morning said LeBron would be funny but have a tough billing to live up to considering Peyton Manning was so good last season. I agree with that. Peyton was good and LeBron has big shoes to fill. But then Skippy Boy went on to say LeBron is “not funny.” And “he’s never said one thing funny in his interviews.” And “he is the worst interview in the NBA.” And “Tim Duncan is a better interview.” And LeBron shouldn’t have made fun of himself on the ESPYs and the fact they got swept in the NBA Finals, something “Michael Jordan would never do.” Hey Skip, LEBRON IS NOT MICHAEL JORDAN. When is Bayless going to drop this whole I-hate-LeBron act. No one in their right mind can hate a guy like LeBron who is the ultimate team player on the court and a classy, stay out of trouble, care about my reputation and the reputation of those around me type of guy. It’s an act and it’s getting old.
