TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (June 17)

  • 12comments

Ooooooweeeeee! Summertime! The livin' is easy and we're indoors watching TV! Here's what we thought was out of sight and just not right on television this week...

Swell:


... It's Always Sunny's Rob McElhenny is bulking up
He's putting on 50 pounds simply because he thinks it would be funny for his character.


... Jim Carrey, funny again?
This amusing staged gag on Letterman ends a dry spell for the rubber-faced comic, but it still doesn't make up for his new penguin movie. Gotta pay the bills, we suppose.


... Suze Orman wore a NICE denim shirt this week
Plus, as Suze pointed out, she can afford to buy denim shirts WITHOUT shreds and scuffs, but this one was just "too cool." Who says a 60-year-old financial advisor/millionaire can't be a little edgy?


... Megan Mullally as a judge on SYTYCD
It takes a special kind of woman to appear as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance AND Childrens Hospital on the same night. Plus, unlike most celebrity judges, she seemed to know what she was talking about!


... Game of Thrones secret-keepers
For those of us who haven't read the books, last weekend's shocking events were a total surprise! We probably owe a ton of gratitude to you book readers who did such a good job of not spoiling it for us. Thanks, nerds!

Hell:


... The disappointment of Jon Benjamin Has a Van
H. Jon Benjamin's new show should be hilarious. We wanted it to be hilarious. We tried to convince ourselves it was hilarious. It is not hilarious.


... C's riffin' on SYTYCD
We're still trying to decide what's more painful to endure: Mary Murphy's incessant mention of the Hot Tamale Train, or C's nonsensical acronym speeches.


... Game of Thrones' knockout really was a knockout
And yes, while it made for great television, we're still bummed we had to say goodbye to one of our favorite characters!


... Pole-dancing on America's Got Talent
This preview for is disheartening, and Howie Mandel is giving Steven Tyler a run for his money in the Lecherous Judging of Young Women in a Reality Competition Show Department.
