I always thought that Big Brother would be the one show I would entertain if given the option to appear as a contestant on any of the shows I watch. After watching this season, there isn't a chance in hell I'd expose myself to this (or any other) show. Ask Amanda Zuckerman if she regrets it. She's come out of this looking every bit the putrid person that she is. She lost her job as a realtor about a month ago and doesn't have a chance of getting hired by anyone who's even heard of Big Brother at this point.
Per Deadline, A&E Network has ordered eight one-hour episodes of Crazy Hearts: Nashville, an unscripted series that will follow the lives of aspiring country music artists and insiders as they balance life, love and their pursuit of stardom in Nashville, one gig at a time. Gross.

ET.com sat down with Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi and reported that "[a]fter 10 seasons of culinary champions and tasty triumphs, Top Chef is -- for the first time -- headed to one of America's biggest foodie cities: New Orleans!
"To help ensure this crop of cheftestants truly represented the city's unique flavor, host Padma Lakshmi set out to find one local culinary wizard to compete on season 11. Hence Padma's Picks was born -- a six episode webseries that pits two chefs against one another, with the ultimate winner earning a spot in the competition."
Between this and Last Chance Kitchen and the sous chefs competing on Top Chef Masters , I say too much. Just leave well enough alone. I don't know a single person who has ever watched any of these webisodes.
