Last night's theme was chopping! First, on America's Next Top Model it was hair being chopped off by the handfuls. I understand that hair is personal, but I don't understand people who say, I'll do anything to win this competition, then balk at a trim or a color change. There were a few drastic make-overs but, as always, everyone looked super in their new do's -- okay, maybe there were one or two exceptions...
Next it was The Chopping Block, the new pseudo-cooking competition on NBC. I say pseudo because there was very little cooking in the premiere episode. Like BBC's Last Restaurant Standing, this show is more about having the organizational skills to run a restaurant efficiently and less about the talents of the chefs. I thought I'd like it, but I was bored. I doubt I'll watch it again.
Finally, it was time to chop two contestants from a bloated American Idol but first the announcement of a new rule. To prevent someone really great going home just because the American public doesn't know talent when they see it, the judges now have the power to override one decision. Since they can only do this once for the whole season, I doubt they'll be playing that card very soon. Last night's eliminees were in my bottom four but not the two I thought would go home. I really thought it would be Anoop and Megan but it was Jasmine and Jorge who were sent packing. I'm a little surprised, but it's not like I expected either of them to win so it was only a matter of time.
And speaking of time, I'm counting the hours until nine o'clock and the return of Supernatural. Oh my show, I've missed you so. Here's what else is on.
Two pilot castings leave me wondering about the fates of two other shows. Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly just took the lead in the new CW series The Body Politic and Reaper's Tyler Labine has also booked a new gig. Do I hear the gong of doom for their current series'?
