My question has to do with ...

Question: My question has to do with the Emmys and reality TV: After two seasons of either awful (Family Edition) or dull Amazing Races, and the conclusion of one of the best Survivors in recent memory (how great was it to see four really likable and honorable people pull off a come-from-behind win and just be happy for one another?), can the reality-TV granddaddy finally pull off a win? Or do the Emmy voters not even watch those programs and just continue to award Amazing Race out of inertia and habit?
Answer: Sorry, I'll have to disagree with you on that one. The last Race may have had an anticlimactic finish, but watching the teams race through new locales in the Far East this season was a lot more thrilling than watching tribes squabble on what looked like the exact same tropical beach as those from the last few years. (That said, I enjoyed the way the last Survivor ended as well.) This category is one of the few cases where I don't mind repeat wins year after year. Especially after

Lucky '07: Stars Share Their New Year's Resolutions

As the old year gives way to the new, TV Guide resolved to get the scoop on some celebrities' New Year's resolutions — and here is what we found out. Rob Lowe, Brothers & Sisters"I always make one resolution, and I haven't come up with it yet [as of early December]. Last year's was to be more aware of how I speak to people, whether it's my kids, my wife or coworkers. It's always a self-betterment thing, something that I can do to change myself in a good way, and that I will actually be able to do on a long-term basis." Jack Coleman, Heroes"I'm going to work on being more disciplined, because now there are a lot more demands on my time. And on getting everything done t read more

December 10, 2006: "Say Your Deepest Prayers Ever"

Anti-climax, party of two? Your finale is ready. So here's what I've decided: This season's winners, male models/recovering addicts Tyler and James are, truth be told, a scientific experiment from the cunning mind of one Bertram Van Munster. Using the latest in state-of-the-art cloning technology, BVM clearly took all the best attributes that made last season's champs, hippies B.J. and Tyler, such an Amazing team, and mixed them up test-tube style with a liberal helping of frat-boy chromosomes from Eric and Jeremy. (Or if you believe what you've seen on the Internet, it's quite possible that those two pairs procreated entirely without the help of a mad scientist.) The end result? A photogenic team comprised of two good-natured and good-looking guys who were able to parlay their athletic prowess and minimal melodrama into a million bucks. Way to go, fellas — I hereby dub you Team Foregone Conclusion.What was awesome in this non-two-hour finale: — 'Bama getting to the Eiff... read more

Are Rob and Amber really ...

Question: Are Rob and Amber really included in the upcoming all-star edition of The Amazing Race? I get why CBS would do this, but haven't they gone to that well too many times? They have each been on Survivor twice, then again on The Amazing Race and on a CBS special about their wedding. To make matters worse, they had an unfair advantage during their time on The Amazing Race because people recognized and helped them on many legs of the competition. How is that fair to the far less recognizable racers? Seriously, enough is enough for these D-List "celebs"! I'm not going to tune in just to root against them. In fact, I've decided to skip the next season altogether, at least until they are Philiminated! Answer: I have yet to see an official cast list for the all-star running of the Race, but everyone here who follows such rumors seems to think that this is probably true. And I see no reason to doubt it, seeing how CBS' reality franchises have fed on each other before. They're not enough ... read more

December 3, 2006: "Dude, I'm Such a Hot Giant Chick Right Now!"

Well there you go — I'm guessing none of us imagined that would be our lineup for the final three. Tyler and James? Sure. Rob and Kimberly? Why not? 'Bama over the Beauty Queens? Wow. I thought there was a fantastic hint of foreshadowing just outside the garden maze, when one of the blondes (I think it was Kandice) finally acknowledged Lyn and Karlyn's brains-over-brawn strategy as having actual merit: "They're calmer — it's pretty smart, actually." That was one of several phrases in this leg that I had to go back and listen to more than once, because I couldn't believe my ears. A couple of the others included the typically petulant Karlyn coming clean and apologizing to Lyn for her bad temper (are you listening, Rob?) and Rob (seriously, Dude, listen up) actually using the words "Way to go, way to cry" to berate Kimberly mid- breakdown after she received one too many tomatoes to the face. It's frustrating to see that sort of behavior rewarded with a first-place finish a... read more
