Big Brother

  • 3 minutes in and Helen's crying
  • What's with McCrae's Fred Flintstone shorts?
  • 8 minutes in and Helen's crying again, this time it's supposedly on purpose, if that's true, man I feel bad for her husband! 
  • Elissa's MVP again America?  I'm sort of happy about it.
  • I wonder what Elissa would look like without her eyelashes on.
  • If I were in the BB house, I'd NEVER wear shoes, Elissa wears mega heels every minute. 
  • Spencer told Howard he had to come clean with Helen, when he did, I had no idea what he was talking about. 
  • Andy is STILL wearing that cat shirt...why Andy, why?
  • 3rd nominee was Spencer 
  • Jeremy didn't get picked to play in for the Veto, yeah!
  • I always wanted to be able to make a braid like Aaryns braid. Does that have a special name?
  • Kaitlin's an idiot for asking Ginamarie to NOT use the veto if she wins it. 
  • I loved the Keeping up with the Jones's art collection competition.  Who thinks of this stuff? Candace's strategy was good. 
  • I hate Aaryn...I know, hates a strong word.  I know.
  • Ginamarie made me ill when she saw the NickDaVinci and kissed it. She never kissed the real guy, but she did get to first base with the painting of him.
  • When Spencer peeked around the corner of the wall, wasn't that cheating
  • Kaitln won the veto.  So...save herself or save her man? What will this idiot do? She saved herself and Jeremy was officially backdoored. YEAH!
  • A Champ is a Champion?  "I don't lose it's not in my blood"...guess what Jeremy...YOU JUST LOST BIG BRO!  I hope.
ESPY AWARDS This was the first time I've ever actually watched the ESPY awards and it was the 20th year! I have no idea why I've never watched before. I love sports, I love athletes and I love award shows. I can't believe I've missed 19 of these shows. Where have I been when this was on before? Not sure.  It was really good and surprisingly touching and powerful and moved me to tears 3 times. The first was during the opening package of sports scenes from the past year, the second was mid-show when Robin Roberts received the Arthur Ashe award for courage and the last at the end of the show when Rick and Dick Hoyt, a father who has pushed his son in 31 Boston Marathons who representing the city of Boston received the Perseverance award from my fave, Ben Affleck. There were lots of celebrity presenters, a few breaks for comedy too. The best was Bill Hader as Vladimir Putin.  I'm not a huge Jon Hamm fan, but he did an okay job of hosting. I could have lived without him.  Anyway, it was really good, I'll be back next year and for the next 20.  The Awards  (these are just the ones presented on the show, there are a ton more given out) Best Breakthrough Athlete: Colin Kaepernickn looking super cool and wearing awesome kicks! Sunglasses ON  Best Comeback: Adrian Peterson looking super cool and speaking so eloquently. Another guy with cool shoes.  Best Game: Heat vs. Spurs Game 6 Lebron's tux was odd,  looked like he was going to marching band practice or to work a wedding.  Best Record Breaking Performance: Michael Phelps Arthur Ashe Award for Courage: Robin Roberts. I was just happy she was there to accept her award. What an amazing story and an amazing woman.  Best Female Athlete: Serena Williams. Gabby Douglas looked bummed. Best Moment: 7 year old Nebraska football fan, Jack Hoffman who has brain cancer and ran for a touchdown during a game. I'm sure you've seen it on YouTube.  Best Upset: Florida Gulf Coast vs. Georgetown  Best Male Athlete: LeBron James  The Perseverance Award: Rick and Dick Hoyt, a dad who has  pushed his disabled son in 31 Boston marathons represented the city of Boston.  My fave, Ben Affleck presented them with the award. More tears. Best Play of the Year:Jadeveon Clowney Best Team: Miami Heat Camp I'm done with Camp. It's boring and it's just all wrong. The family camp makes no sense to me, and the show just doesn't capture what camp is supposed to feel like. Sorry NBCU, you got this one and the USA reality show, all wrong. Both camp themed shows this Summer are total bummers.

-As I expected...Sharknado 2 has been given the green light. This time, NYC is where the storm makes landfall.  I can't wait. Syfy will air the movie in 2014 and is looking for all of us to help with a name for the tagline.  I already have the winner, so for any of you guys that work at Syfy, how's this: SHARKNADO 2 NYC: TAKING A BITE OUT OF THE BIG APPLE!  Not bad right?  I have to remember to tweet that one in as soon as possible. Just a reminder, if you haven't seen Sharknado yet, it's on tonight at 7pm.  

-Meredith Viera's talk show has already been cleared to run on all of the NBC Owned & Operated stations in the Fall of 2014. I don't know what time she's going to be running, but I'm guessing by then, fans of The View will need something to switch to, so maybe NBC should put Meredith on at 11am to make it easy for everyone. Although that's what time it's on here in NYC, but it's still a good plan. 

-Keith Olbermann's back...this time it's ESPN2 for Keith. He'll launch his late night talk show on 8/26 at 11pm because there just isn't enough competition for late night talkers these days! Sorry Keith, if I'm awake, I have a date with Andy Cohen at that time and I'm extremely loyal to him.


-Season 5 of Rookie Blue has been given the go ahead. Anyone happy by that news? 

-When American Dad ends its run on FOX in 2014, don't freak out, TBS has picked up the show and will be running original episodes. 


Thursday's Trivia Question: I'm feeling Seinfeldy today, maybe because I'm watching it right now while I'm typing this and I feel like you guys need an easy one, AND because you guys always enjoy a good Seinfeld question. Name the sexually explicit movie that George saw by mistake when he was meeting the gang for a movie. Bonus if you remember the name of the other movie they were supposed to see that night at the theater.  WWTM-Kristy Like me on Facebook at Watching Way Too Much Follow me on Twitter at [email protected] http://watchingwaytoomuch.com [email protected]
