I want to make out with this show. I want chill with it, get to know it a little better, and then make like awkward eighth graders at summer camp. Seriously, what is it about this show that makes me laugh so much? Even my roommate, a fellow Reaper lover who sits self-shackled next to me on the couch every Tuesday night, throws me questioning stares because I chortle obnoxiously at the tube every 15 seconds. So yes, I'm a huge dork. And according to the CW's ratings breakdown, I'm also one of the total four women who watch this show. Yeah, take that... all other shows. Yeah.I think the show is really taking off. This time I found myself not so concerned for the vessel or what it would be, as much as how all the shenanigans were going to go down. Whereas I once watched with suspicion, I now watch for fun. And I think that says a lot about the leaps it's made.

Time to Get Your Mindfreak On!

David Blaine is a total hack, especially compared to Criss Angel. Although the three-time Magician of the Year winner has never romanced Fiona Apple, he's seduced celebrities such as Mandy Moore, Rob Zombie and Korn's Jonathan Davis — not to mention Goth-guy-loving gals — with his fantastical illusions, feats of endurance, adorable "Noo Yawk" accent and sexy Marilyn Manson-style wardrobe (thankfully accessorized by a much hotter face and body than the shock rocker). Last year marked the debut of his riveting A&E reality show read more


On May 9 Bravo premieres Kathy Griffin: Strong Black Woman, a new stand-up special in which the ribald redhead takes on Paula Abdul, Dakota Fanning and more.

Hmm... ) Speaking of special specials, ABC presents David Blaine: Drowned Alive on May 8, while NBC has booked the 55th-annual Miss Universe competition for July 23 — so break out the Vaseline and start practicing that hand-waving. read more
