“I Survived” ABC’s New Lineup, by tuning in to the finale of “Hell’s Kitchen!”
Last night was taken up by those “Nashville Stars.” You can find my recap here. I forgot to mention a performance by Blake Shelton. My husband, who is not much of a country fan, came to join me just after Blake began singing “Home,” then proclaimed, “now he’s good.” I had to explain that he was “good” because he was one of the biggest acts in country music and not a contestant. At least it shows that my husband has good taste and an ear for good music.
After that it was “Legally Blonde” but I only made it through half the episode before I succumbed to the “Dark Angel: Season Two” DVD in my player. I get on these jags, can’t help it.
