ER, after 15 seasons, is closing the doors. NBC’s genre-changing television series redefined the medium and made stars out of a slew of actors including Oscar-winning George Clooney.
Last night, there were honestly a few tense moments on American Idol tonight when I thought Adam might actually be in the bottom three, but it was just the producers trying to make it exciting. Megan was sent home, as I suspected, so I’m happy. More Adam, more Kris, that’s all I need from my American Idol.
America’s Next Top Model had the girls doing a beauty shot with a face full of color. Nothing much to see here and I wasn’t thrilled with any of the pictures. Sandra was sent home because apparently she can only pose in profile. Geez, doesn’t everyone have that problem?
I finally caught up on last week’s The Mentalist where someone is killing off these corporate board members on a wilderness retreat. I watched it all but it wasn’t a favorite. I feel like this show is slowing down, maybe the gimmick is getting old…I don’t know exactly why but it’s not on my must see list anymore.
What is on my must see list is Supernatural and Eleventh Hour. I’ll be watching those shows, but what will you be watching?
