(43-206) That's Entertainment!

Historically, there have been few TV shows that Luis and I both want to watch.  He finds it ridiculous that I still enjoy "General Hospital" after all of these years; because he "assumes" that they keep doing the same story lines over and over again; which in their defense; I must say, they do not.  And although I will gladly watch CNN or MSNBC with him for a limited amount of time; I can't watch it hours on end; like he will if given the opportunity;  nor do I have any interest in watching the Discovery channel; or anything about insects.

As our tastes in TV shows couldn't be more different; it thrills me no end that we are both addicted to the NEW "American Idol."  When I wrote "Half Way There;"  I told you that I was enjoying the chemistry between Randy, Steven and J-Lo; and they have yet to disappoint.  I also told you that barring any interference from; I thought this season of "Idol" might be the best yet; and based on what I've seen thus far; I still stand by this statement.

If you have yet to tune in to "American Idol" this season; I highly recommend that you program your DVR or Tivo or whatever recording device your using; because the NEW "Idol" has been absolutely amazing.  Next week will be the last phase of Hollywood week; so by no means is it too late for you to jump on the bandwagon; so I say, GET ON BOARD.  The singers that are left all seem to be very original; with distinct voices like we haven't heard before; and the judges have been; in a word, PHENOMENAL.  Although I was a big (yes) HUGE, Simon fan.  I have to say that this season is much more pleasant.  Even when they're delivering a criticism; it doesn't have the sting that Simon's comments had. 

Although this is the tenth season of "American Idol;" there is a freshness about it, that has Luis and I very interested; and we love the fact that there is something that we want to watch together.  OK, if truth be told; there are actually a few shows that we're watching together now, besides "American Idol."  Our favorite comedy is "Mike and Molly;" which is on Monday nights on CBS.  If you haven't seen it yet; you are missing a weekly dose of laughter; and I wouldn't let another week pass by, before tuning in; because it's HYSTERICAL.  We're also watching "Jersey Shore;" and "RuPaul's Drag Race," and we're not embarrassed to admit it.  Hmmm, well; maybe we're a little embarrassed to admit it.  But that's entertainment!   You can say what you want about the cast of "The Jersey Shore," but the utter ridiculousness of it all just makes us laugh (In a "Hangover" kinda way;) and we'll take our laughs anywhere we can get them these days.   

Now I KNOW that there are a lot of people who are appalled by the "Jersey Shore," and to those of you I say; I get it.  But don't let the fact that I enjoy it; dissuade you from taking my recommendations for this seasons "American Idol;" and "Mike and Molly;" because for however bad you think "Jersey Shore" is; "American Idol" and "Mike and Molly" are THAT GOOD! 
Till next time...
