Are The Bachelor's ratings ...

Question: Are The Bachelor's ratings really that much better than The Nine's, or is it just much cheaper to produce? I don't really need an answer, but my point is that crappy shows like The Bachelor keep getting cranked out, and intriguing shows like The Nine are given little chance to succeed. I am so disappointed in the lack of time the networks give to new shows. Some of the longest-running shows in television history weren't overnight successes, yet now some get pulled after two or three episodes. I allowed myself four new shows at the beginning of the fall season: Brothers & Sisters, The Nine, Six Degrees and Standoff. I agree with Six Degrees' hiatus, as it was pretty over the top; but I feel a connection to The Nine's characters and really want to know what happened during the rest of the 52 hours. I am glad that after all the bad press Brothers & Sisters got, it appears to have some staying power. And Standoff: Well, it is the right fit for Fox, so I think it will at least ...  Read Full Article

November 27, 2006: The Fairy Tale of Being a Real-life Princess Comes True

Throughout recent episodes, I’ve been saying I had no idea which girl would end up the last one standing. Even when it came down to the final two a couple weeks ago, it still wasn’t obvious who Lorenzo was going to pick. But tonight, after watching the first hour and 39 minutes before that first limo door opened, I knew for sure Jennifer would get the final rose yet was trying not to admit it, because I didn’t want to be disappointed if it wasn’t her! It just seemed very clear to me tonight that Jen was the one — after she was the first to meet his parents, Lorenzo asked her dad first for his blessing, and their "third wish" conversation. Even though I’ve watched way too many seasons of The Bachelor to know not to get attached to any one relationship, it looked like Lorenzo and Jennifer genuinely wanted to pursue something real after the show ended. Or as Lorenzo put it — to live outside the “Garden of Eden” and back to “Planet Earth... read more

November 20, 2006: The Women Tell All

A note to The Bachelor producers: This show could be so much better if we saw more of the “real” footage we’re supposed to be seeing on a reality show. It was so much more entertaining watching Lorenzo make up words and swat wasps and say “I think it’s a cow penis” than seeing him whip out one sappy line after the next. Sometimes it’s hard for me to believe people can genuinely fall in love on this show because they’re manipulated by all the romantic surroundings (Rome, a castle, fireworks, hot tubs, a private opera, diamond earrings, and beds covered in rose petals just to name a few). But then we see the raw footage of them being goofy and romantic without the forced cheesiness, and it explains how it actually is possible. So please, if you want better ratings and a more satisfied audience, show us more of the good stuff and less of the stuff that makes me roll my eyes. Oh, and one more thing — please pay for Agnese to take a few Engli... read more

November 13, 2006: Later, Lisa

Well, it’s finally down to the last two girls, and it looks like Lorenzo has a really tough decision on his hands. I really like both Sadie and Jen, and I honestly have no idea whom he’s going to pick. Watching Lorenzo when he’s alone with Sadie makes me think it’s obviously her; but, on the other hand, I just can’t trust the way this show is edited. That makes me wonder if it’s Jen, because we haven’t seen as much of her. She also had the first overnight date, so I have to wonder if it was Lorenzo’s choice to have his favorite go first, or if he saved the best (Sadie) for last. And speaking of the overnight dates, I was confused by Sadie's meltdown over the fantasy-suite decision. I don’t know where she got the idea that spending the night with Lorenzo meant she must have sex with Lorenzo. It’s a suite — I’m sure if you didn’t feel comfortable sharing a bed, he could have found somewhere else to sleep. At least go u... read more

October 30, 2006: Adios, Agnese

It finally happened. We finally saw those sparks and moments where you think, “OK, these two really like each other,” I was begging for last week. We finally saw Prince Lorenzo let his emotions go and completely lose himself with one of the girls. And here I am, moments after the rose ceremony, speechless because the girl Lorenzo had all those emotions for was sent home. She may not speak English very well, but Agnese perfectly summed up the reason she didn’t get a rose when she was riding home in the limo: “He use more head than heart.” Now I know last week a lot of us were surprised Agnese had made it through the next round. But after tonight’s episode I was convinced Lorenzo was able to overlook the language barrier and that in three weeks he’d be getting down on one knee asking Agnese to be his princess. Just the way he kept looking at her, and how genuine he was with her family about how much he cared for her, and how romantic he kept saying t... read more
