'Big Brother' 2014 Premiere Recap: The Crazy 8s
The Big Brother 2014 season introduced viewers to some of the biggest personalities in the series' history. We met a makeup artist with blue hair, a Youtube sensation with a famous sister, and a loud DJ. The meek and quiet won't get any Big Brother 16 airtime while these characters stay in the house. To add to the Big Brother excitement, host Julie Chen informed viewers of a couple new game changing twists. Can Big Brother 16 make up for the mistakes of Big Brother 15? We have our doubts.

A Game of Eight

This year Big Brother decided to divide the houseguests. On last night's episode we m...

'So You Think You Can Dance' 2014 Episode 5 Recap: Who Made the Top 20 Dancers?

'So You Think You Can Dance' 2014 Episode 5 Recap: Who Made the
This So You Think You Can Dance 2014 episode dwindled 157 dancers to a mere 20. We lost some of our favorite dancers along the way, but the talent for So You Think You Can Dance season 11 is so high that we're still very excited about the remaining dancers. Additionally, this season's elimination process seemed more intense than ever. Anyone who survived all those LA callback rounds deserved to make it to the top 20.

Hip Hop Choreography

Christopher Scott developed the choreography for this round. The hip hop round proved more difficult than many contestants expected, including those th...

'Top Gear' (USA) Recap And Review: 'Snow Show' - Adam's On Fire

'Top Gear' (USA) Recap And Review: 'Snow Show' - Adam's On Fire
Fans of the British Top Gear will remember an episode in which the hosts built a snowplow out of a combine harvester and then accidentally destroyed anything it touched. Now it's the American show's turn to tackle the cold weather - and it's actually even wilder than the first time around.

This episode is actually more like a play on last season's "Doomsday Drive," except with a prize at the end. The guys must build the best possible snow-clearing machine, and whoever makes the most worthy contribution to their effort gets to drive a supercar against a snowmobile. Tanner shows up in Maine ...

'The Bachelorette' Season 10, Episode 6 Recap: Because Nothing Says Romance Like A Lie Detector Test

The Bachelorette Season 10, Episode 6
The Bachelorette European tour continues! It's a new week, a new country, and a new set of cultural traditions to be mangled by our ever-shrinking group of beautiful, desperate weirdos.

This week, Italy's on the menu, but there's something a little off about the festivities. You see, Andi has been to Italy. She knows the country and the culture (she doesn't seem to know any Italian, but you can't win 'em all). Certainly, this will give her a leg up among the menfolk, who float into Venice with talk of how the churches are totally awesome. Because if it's one thing Andi needs, it's a leg u...

A History Of Hatred And Bigotry In The 'Big Brother' House

A History Of Hatred And Bigotry In The 'Big Brother' House
Big Brother has never been the classiest reality television program. Viewers go into their favorite summer obsession knowing that they’re going to be outraged by unfair twists, blatant rigging, and characters that make our stomachs turn. Big Brother 15 set the bar for how low a season could get. In only one week, BB15 was declared the most controversial season in the show’s history. It featured racism, homophobia, anti-semitism, misogyny, and every other stop on the bigotry check list from the least likeable cast to ever darken CBS’s doorway.

During and after the season, Big Brother produc...

'The Challenge' Recap: Best Moments From '350,000 Dollar Pyramid'

'The Challenge' Recap: Best Moments From '350,000 Dollar Pyramid
Wrecked By The Wall

Last week’s cliffhanger left viewers wondering which competitors would be sent packing right before the final competitions. Four of the baddest, scariest players were about to face off in Wrecking Wall. The first face off was between Leroy and CT. As two of the most evenly matched players, in size and strength, it really could have been anyone’s game. However, CT has made a name for himself on this show for bashing in heads. Compared to that, what’s one measly wall? CT punched holes into the drywall like it’s something his fists naturally do all the time. If only Leroy ...

'So You Think You Can Dance' 2014 Episode 4 Recap: Hotlanta
The So You Think You Can Dance 2014 secret phrase had to be Dragon House dance group. We met the founding member of it, and a few others in the crew. Additionally, the show mentioned formers members who competed on previous seasons of So You Think You Can Dance. It even seemed like So You Think You Can Dance season 11 kept one performers outrageous tantrum just to continue to promote Dragon House dance group. Through it, Cranking, the dance battles’ crews of the week, and the auditions, the episode highlighted some of the cultural magic of Atlanta, especially with the art of dancing.

'Top Gear' (USA) Recap: '80's Power' - Lou Ferrigno Guest Judges
There were a lot of things to love about the 1980's. Movies with Andrew McCarthy in them. Some of the music wasn't that bad. But the cars? Well, our Top Gear heroes are spending this week trying to prove that the cars were okay, too.

Given $5,000 to pick their ride of choice, the guys meet at a mall outside of Los Angeles for their usual "series of challenges leading to an ultimate winner" escapade. Rutledge turns up in a supercharged Toyota MR2, while Adam arrives in a Buick Grand National, and Tanner has the keys to such a Tanner-esque car: a bright red Chevy Camaro IROC-Z. Tanner thinks...

'Top Gear': Checking In With Adam Ferrara And Tanner Foust
The fourth season of Top Gear just came roaring back, and already Adam Ferrara and Tanner Foust can't stop talking about it. We checked in with two-thirds of the TG hosting trio when they attended last week's E3 Expo (Rutledge Wood being on the road and unable to join us). Here are a few things Adam and Tanner spilled about what it takes to make Top Gear.

Firstly, tonight's episode is going to be an interesting one (as if they're ever not). "There are some stunts in this next episode," Tanner told us.

"There's the ones we know about and the ones that just happen," Adam corrected.

"Yeah,"...

'The Bachelorette,' Season 10, Episode 5 Recap: Marquel Fights R
For our fifth week of The Bachelorette (not counting last week's, which was basically a clip show), Andi's selection of male concubines has been pared down to just eleven. But with less contestants, it's now far cheaper for ABC to send the cast to France. So to France we must go!

As soon as the group arrives in Marseille, the stakes seem higher. Some of the menfolk have still not had any significant alone time with Andi, and for obvious reasons, they've begun mentally unraveling. Andi, meanwhile, is asked by our intrepid host Chris Harrison if she's considered the L word for any of these f...
