TV Show Review: Remodeled, Mobbed, Bachelor, Celebrity Wife Swap, More
Remodeled - This is a new reality show on the CW where this fashion CEO guy goes around and tries to save struggling modeling agencies. It pretty much Kitchen Nightmares but instead of Ramsey fixing up restaurants, it's this guy fixing up modeling agencies. The show was ok, not great. I don't think I'm going to keep watching it. There are certain people on tv that really bother me, for example Zooey Deschanel. On this show, it's the assistant guy who looks like a gothic emo with an attitude problem. Some actors and shows just irritate me to no end. I might have to just chill out and watch travel shows for now on. But I digress, back to the list.
UPDATE: 8-14-12 Ok that assistant guy Joseph from Remodeled is growing on me and I actually think he is the best part of the show now. It's fun to see him out of place as he deals with families from small towns.
Mobbed - This is Howie Mandel's new show where he creates flash mobs for people who want to make a big announcement to surprise someone. I really liked the first episode this season where the singer guy asked his long time internet girl friend to be in a real relationship with him. The episode was perfect. The last episode however was not that great. I was not impressed with the scenario or the reaction from the people involved. I will keep watching this show and hope that they maintain a high quality.
The Bachelor - I never really got into the Bachelor or Bachelorette shows. This season, I have been watching it a bit, but I don't want to. It pretty much like there is nothing else on so I flip to it, or go to it during a commercial break. I just think shows like this are so bad for us to watch because they are unrealistic and portray an image that is not what real people are like. I would much rather see the "Average Joe" style show where you have real looking people interacting, not just people that look like models.
Celebrity Wife Swap - I have been watching this for a few weeks, but I have not been impressed. The celebrities are not that good and really aren't adding much to the show. In fact, I think the regular version of the show where they pick on people based on their characteristics, and switch them up, results in a more entertaining show. I may stick with this one, only if the celebs are known and interesting.
Alcatraz - A new series on FOX. It didn't look that great on the previews. I watched a bit of the pilot episode and it did not hook me. Probably won't be watching this one.
Betty White's Off Their Rockers - This is a hidden camera show with old people. I'm not sure if it was a special or if it is a series. I do enjoy hidden camera shows, but this one was just ok at best. Check out my previous post about Just For Laughs for better hidden camera jokes.
Are You There Chelsea - This is Chelsea Handler's new sitcom. I just caught some of it the other day. From what I understand, it is based on her, but she is not playing herself, but instead, she is playing her sister? I find this strange. I think she should have played herself. The show did not catch me and I probably won't watch it.
Noticing a pattern? Looks like the new shows are not doing to well, at least in my opinion. Maybe I'm just watching the wrong shows. I'm sure there are some good dramas on, or maybe some better shows on cable. What do you suggest?
