TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (June 25)

  • 19comments

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

Swell


... The football coming out episode of Party Down
We're also just super excited about tonight's season finale.

... USA! USA! USA!
On the brink of elimination, Landon Donovan chips in from the box to kick off an extra-early session of day-drinking and World Cup soccer-watching across the United States.



... The new Futurama doesn't suck!
Our cautiously low expectations were pleasantly crushed.



... The Boondocks taking on Tyler Perry
Aaron McGruder pulled zero punches with his skewering of the man behind Madea.



... Longest. Tennis match. Ever.
American John Isner won the fifth set with the score of 70-68. But all we'll really remember is how this historic Wimbledon match made daytime television worth watching. Thanks, time zones!



Hell


... Bristol Palin on The Secret Life of the American Teenager
My name is Bristol. I am a robot.



... Only half of the Glee cast is planning to attend Comic-Con
Allegedly it's because the other cast members were there last year. But we all really know it's because of that diva Lea Michele.

... Jason Lee in Memphis Beat is great...
But the rest of Memphis Beat is not.



... The Good Guys is getting reaaally repetitive already
Not that we really thought this show had a chance of sticking around.

... John Henson's canned one-liners on Wipeout
Remember when John Henson could be his bizarrely funny self on Talk Soup?

... The omnipresence of the cast of the awful-looking GrownUps as they take over our TVs to promote that garbage
Once upon a time, these guys were actually funny. Now they're just paying their mortgages.
