America’s Got Talent continues while it’s a Blue Collar brawl and MTV tries to make Gents out of G’s.
Last night was jam-packed with things to watch all after the 9:00 o’clock hour! First was “Nashville Star” which I’ll cover in depth in my full recap later this afternoon. Then it was ‘thanks to the DVR’ time so I was able to catch both “Legally Blonde” and “The Middleman.”
“Legally Blonde” pushed the girls to their limit with a routine that required them to be a triple threat (sing, dance, act) and even do a quick costume change! Bailey had a wardrobe malfunction that ended up being in her favor and in the end it was sweet Lauren who went home. Very talented, but too young.
If you haven’t see ABC Family’s “The Middleman” you simply must, especially if you’re a SCI FI or comic book fan. The show is like “Get Smart” with superheroes. Totally crazy and yet, so very smart. It defies explanation so check it out for yourself.
