The Biggest Loser is crowning the winner on TV tonight. Momma’s Boys, a new dating show, premieres after The Biggest Loser champion is announced.
Speaking of The Biggest Loser (kidding we love Sarah, but)…Sarah Connor confuses me. Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, right?
I want to keep liking this show but I’m fading. I didn’t even watch the fall finale yet. Just catching up with last week’s, which was a confusing mix of past, present and future. Question: if I get infected by some nasty bug in the future and I come back to now, will I still be sick? Hey, if I could go back in time, I’d buy up all the toys and collectibles then come back to now and sell them on eBay. How cool would that be?
What else did I watch last night…more Food Network. I think it must be the holiday spirit that has me watching endless hours of cooking shows. I watched Alton Brown make baklava (easy but way too time consuming) and Sandra Lee made stuffed mushrooms (easy but way too time consuming) and four contestants made outrageous holiday cakes on Food Network Challenge. Which reminds me! Tomorrow, I’ll be chatting with Guy Fieri of Diners Drive-ins and Dives about his new show, so stay tuned right here for more on that.
