Put those borrowed babies to bed, it’s the return of Shear Genius!
Excuse me if I type funny, I’m still overdosing on the silly from last night. Did you catch ABC’s new game shows? “Wipeout” and “I Survived a Japanese Game Show?” They had their moments but not as many as I’d hoped. The Japanese version of “Wipeout” is much funnier, though “Game Show” I could probably watch again.
After that it was “America’s Got Talent” and wow, did they ever. Those Russian circus people with the girl jumping on a skinny bar, the magician who took an arrow to the heart, oh and those poor guys from New Orleans and their Katrina stories — yes, I shed more than a few tears last night. And don’t get me started on the guy who sang “Walking in Memphis.” I’m not usually into singers on this show but he had something special going for him.
And speaking of special, tonight is full of “NEW,” and how crazy is that for the last week of June. Take a look.
