In a very mashochistic fashion, I decided to go back in for a third episode of Newlyweds: The First Year on Bravo and my disdain for these 8 cast members has increased tenfold.  The dude from Oyster Bay almost broke his arm patting himself on the back because he was so proud that he baked brownies for his wife for Valentine's Day.  The brownies were supposedly the first thing he had ever cooked or baked in his 40 or so years on this planet.  Tarzania celebrated Valentine's Day in what looked like an office/apartment and Mrs. Tarzania was so excited by the blue balloons that her husband had in the room that she gave them a hug.  

I'm starting to sour on The Voice.  Now that we're at the final 10, the show has lost it's edge.  The drama is gone.  The song selections have been weak.  Without the intrigue of the blind auditions or the h2h rounds or the possibility of a steal, the show has become a jazzed up version of American Idol.  I'm not suggesting that I'm going to abandon the show, but we need more over a two hour show than last night delivered.  I don't have a quick fix, but this show could use one.

Here's some scoop on the upcoming return of Arrested Development.

Thanks to EW for this nugget: 

"ABC has signed judges, cast and a host for its new competition series Sing Your Face Off, and it’s quite a unique collection of famous names.

First, actor John Barrowman (Torchwood, Arrow) will host the show, where five celebrity contestants take on the identity of an iconic music performer each week. The judges are former Saturday Night Live cast member Darrell Hammond and pop singer Debbie Gibson.

And the show’s contestants learning to perform the hits of famous music stars are ex-Skid Row frontman and heavy metal singer Sebastian Bach, comedian Jon Lovitz, Toronto Raptors player Landry Fields, teenage Disney Channel actress-singer China Anne McClain and former soap star Lisa Rinna.

The six-episode Sing Your Face Off is produced by Endemol USA with Georgie Hurford-Jones (America’s Got Talent) as executive producer and based on a successful international format. There’s no air date yet, but the production seems to gearing up for a potential debut this summer."

Why is Adam Devine (Workaholics) obsessed with manscaping?

Will this get you to return to VH1?  The daily pop culture series will feature gossip columnists dishing on hot topics in a panel format. The Gossip Table will premiere on VH1 on Monday, June 3 at 9 AM as a summer replacement for Big Morning Buzz Live With Carrie Keagan, which is on summer break. Big Morning Buzz executive producer Shane Farley is exec producing Gossip via his Cypress E Prods.
