The Top Chef finale is tonight at 10EST. Watch as Dave gets upset and self-destructs. See Tiffani make snide remarks about her superiority. Observe Harold’s haughty confidence and filthy language. It’s going to be awesome.
My prediction: Tiffani over Harold in the most outrageous injustice in the history of cable television.
Also, if you missed last week’s reunion show, you should definitely try to catch it at 9 tonight, because it was hilaaaaaaaaaaaarious. The best part is when Tiffani tries to steal Dave’s present, but there’s so much more to it. Very enjoyable.
If you didn’t see the Grey’s Anatomy finale last night (and, for some reason you care), stop reading–SPOILERS AHEAD.
I was browsing the fake blog for a nurse on Grey’s Anatomy this morning and, well, I think I’ll let these comments speak for themselves:
Its so sad that Denny dies when izzie layed there i started to cry it was just so heartbreaking and the fact that he asked he to marry him makes it so much worse :(

And here are a few somewhat coherent comments from the official writers’ blog:
I’ve worked in hospitals, and because of the births, deaths and everything in between that happens there, the staff is unusually dedicated and hard-working. I too think that the finale had too many over-the-top scenarios in which the staff was acting in totally unbelievable and unprofessional ways. Several people are injured in a shooting (one example), and yet it’s deemed imperative to hold a hospital-wide PROM?! for a teenager who is not too sick to attend? What nonsense. Really. [Amen–ed.]

I’m so disgusted with GA right now, and want to say so much, but will only say that you may as well just write Derek off the show after what you’ve done to this character! You’ve taken what many of us Mer/Der fans used to adore and see as a great love and love story, and turned it into something that doesn’t even resemble love, just sex and a very selfish man who doesn’t seem to really care about ANYONE but himself and what he wants. That’s not why you drew in so many loyal fans to GA, and it really sucks that this it what this show has become; characters who no longer seem to have any redeeming qualities and who I find it impossible to even care about anymore. This finale was such a letdown after such a buildup and I don’t even care anymore about where this will go next season. [Amen–ed.]

What do I think? Well, first of all, of course Denny died. That was the only way I could have possibly stomached Izzie’s bizarre and hideous behavior–I mean, I don’t even know where to start on that. Next: I don’t know if I was ever really interested in Meredith at all–does she even practice medicine anymore, or is it just the same old stupid fights in hallways and elevators with occasional breaks to make terrible decisions about her personal life?–but it’s safe to say that I don’t care at all which guy she picks (well, except to say that sometime in the middle of the season Derrick went from a nice guy doing the best he could in a bad situation to a complete asshole who we now know for a fact has no deep problems with cheating on his wife, so I guess I hope she picks him and they both fall down a mine shaft).
I think the finale was an appalling mix of obvious melodrama (Denny dying, that STUPID STUPID prom) and reprehensible behavior (Meredith and Shepherd have got to be the least sympathetic star-crossed lovers in the history of television, and Izzie is an awful person who acted incredibly unprofessionally and risked not only her career but her friends’ careers–oh yeah, and a patient’s life). With the actually interesting medical stuff taking a backseat to run of the mill soap opera crap, the last few weeks of this show have been extremely disappointing. It reminds me of the O.C.’s precipitous fall in its second season, during which time all the characters started acting completely implausibly in a transparent effort to advance increasingly-absurd plotlines along. The thing that made both shows entertaining–the dialogue, the characterization, the unexpected quirks that had nothing to do with the momentary drama–gave way to cheap and clichéd plot twists and love triangles, leaving nothing but a great soundtrack.
To awkwardly touch on a subject I’ve already touched on once this week: Aaron Sorkin, when not drugged out of his gourd, keeps his eye on the prize–compelling and intelligent television. I wish anybody else in television did the same.
Turns out that on his first day, Jon Stewart was neither funny nor well dressed. Still, I think we can all agree that it’s pretty cool that the Daily Show website offers (immaculately tagged!) clips from shows going back to 1999. Thanks, internet, for this (from before Colbert was a hawk!):
And that’s it. No more stupid videos advertising “Who’s Now” or WNBA broadcasts or Steven A. Smith’s newest show, “Spittin’ Mad With Steven A. (Brought to You by Cheetos)”. Enjoy.
* ESPN, you really need to find a way to turn this off by default. Everyone hates it. Most of us visit your site from work, you know? We can’t have this nonsense.
