TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (June 10)

  • 14comments

Here's what we thought was out of sight and just not right on television this week...

Swell:


... Black Swanson

... Werner Herzog on The Colbert Report
The legendary film director stopped the Report to promote his new film, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, and talk about cave porn.


... So You Think You Can Dance's Cat Deely
This year, the final audition episode was also the first performance episode, which means Cat Deely was front and center sooner than we thought. Also, the new batch of dancers looks pretty terrific, too.


... Promos for Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings
If this Cat Hotel commercial is any indication of what's in store for the rest of the season, we're pumped. And we know where we're staying next time we're in LA.


... This week's tearjerker episode of South Park
Watching Stan move on while his friends stayed the same was heartbreaking and oh-so-relatable. But the confession from creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, disguised as a divorce between Stan's parents, really drove the whole theme of the episode home. Touching, sad, and one of South Park's finest.


... Norm's nephew visits Nitro X
Kyle's bizarre segments are the best recurring bits on Sports Show with Norm MacDonald.

Hell:


... The Voice's backup dancers
Don't get us wrong, we think this may be the best competitive singing show around, but those backup dancers who performed with Lily need to go back to miming school.


... The death of Singer-songwriter Andrew Gold, who wrote Golden Girls theme song
Thank you, Andrew, for being a friend.


... Bentley bashing on The Bachelorette
Are you kidding? He may be a psychopath, but at least he's the only one admitting Ashley is a disappointment and this show is a sham.


... The Critics' Choice TV Awards' Best New Series category
Honoring shows that haven't aired yet? Not even declaring a winner? Where's the sense in that other than to grease to palms of networks to gain favor? After a great first round of nominees, this thing is starting to look more like the Teen Choice Awards.


... Tyce Diorio as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance
Ugh, this guy is TV poison. Just the grossest.


... Tracy Morgan's Anti-Gay Rant
Maybe we had too many comedy heroes anyway. Have a nice life, Tracy Morgan!
