Jason Ritter, Parenthood
The Event's loss is the Bravermans' gain!
In the wake of the sci-fi drama's cancellation in May, star Jason Ritter will be returning to Parenthood this coming season, TVLine reports.
Ritter, 31, will reprise his role as Sarah's former love interest (and Amber's old English teacher!) Mark for multiple episodes. At the same time, NBC's Universal Media Studios (behind both Parenthood and The Event) has signed Ritter to...
America's Got Talent
On Wednesday's episode, America's Got Talent entered its second round of Las Vegas auditions (these count as semifinals, right?), which meant a second round of ridiculousness from acts that have come before. None — not the big guy with the freestyle dance and the too-short shirt, not the tween girl group who sound like The Chipettes without any vocal altering, not the young rappers/wappers, not the far-from-angelic wing-wearer — matched the weirdness of the geriatric duo consisting of a pianist and an acrobat. The best thing about this is that unlike, say, Narcissister, this pair's act doesn't seem self-consciously weird — it mostly feels accidental and blissfully unaware. The banana-eating, though, is a bit precious...

Love in the Wild
Love in the Wild (Wednesdays, 10/9c, NBC) is a trashy beach novel of a TV show. It is salacious in nature (10 women and 10 men are thrown together in a Costa Rican paradise to partner-swap their way to true love) but not in practice (so much closed-mouth kissing). It is kind of mean (each week the last picked — that is, least desired — from each sex goes home) but then again completely goofy (at one point during a river-rafting challenge, someone confused a stick for a crocodile). It is mindless enough to be ideal summertime programming.
