So You Think You Can Dance, Shear Genius and more
The contestants take a short cut on Shear Genius, who has the messiest house in the country, plus "So You Think You Can Dance?" showcases the Top 14.
Okay, I confess. I watched "Wipeout" again last night on ABC and found it mildly amusing but let's keep that a secret between us, shall we? After that it was a never-ending episode of "America's Got Talent," or at least it seemed that way. More terrible acts prevailed including strippers who should never do that again and a painting pig who turned diva when asked to leave the stage.
I fell in love with the guy who sings like Sinatra, what a dream he was. But the little kid who sang "Ben?" Yeah, it's a great story about how he conquered personal setbacks with music. He is precociously adorable but come on, it's not million dollar talent.
And, I owe you an apologies. I thought last night was the finale of "Hell's Kitchen" but it was more like a pre-final than a finale, finale. Truth be told, I'm so over that show.
Let's see what's on tonight!
