Ugly Betty lives another day

Ugly Betty is getting a makeover while Private Practice gets tragic.

Alexis heads home on American IdolAnother American Idol was sent packing. I was scared when Ryan started the show saying the results would be surprising. Not to me they weren’t. The bottom three were Allison, Michael and Alexis and I could have seen any one of them go home and not shed a tear. In the end it was Alexis who sang her farewell number, missing out on the Idol tour by one week.

Before that I watched the girls take runway lessons from Miss J on America’s Next Top Model and then it was a NY neighborhood fashion shoot where the girls had to play a character. Overall, a pretty boring shoot and a slow-moving episode, just nothing much to see here.

I know I said I wouldn’t watch Chopping Block again but apparently I forgot tell my DVR that so it recorded and I watched. It was a little more interesting than last week but there’s still very little cooking going on in this show. Last night, each team had to cater a party for a fashion designer and neither one did very well. One kitchen even tried to serve the fish the designer specifically asked them not to serve! Way to make friends and influence people. Who went home? I don’t remember because I’m not interested in these people.

Life and Law & Order are still on the DVR but tonight is a super crazy Supernatural! Oh the things Sam has been doing behind Dean’s back. Let’s just say you’ll either find it totally disgusting or incredibly hot. I’m leaning toward hot.

Here’s what else is on.
