This Week’s TVpocalypse Poll
1. Modern Family (Last Week: 1)
2. Boardwalk Empire (Last Week: 2)
3. Sons of Anarchy (Last Week: 3)
4. Dexter (Last Week: 4)
5. Jersey Shore (Last Week: 6)
This show is just too good to ignore. There seems to have been much debate over Gianni being a TV whore who only dated Snooki to get on TV (or at least there was between the 4 people I discussed this with at work). I disagree. And I have an opinion on what really went down (shocking, I know). Gianni was not dating Snooki, he was dating Nicole. And Nicole does not go around throwing the cooka (can I get a ruling on the spelling here?) at clubs. Nicole is probably a sweet girlfriend who just happens to quietly put out like a porn star. He probably thought she was a changed little guidette. And then she threw the cooka out at that club in Florence, and then suddenly he realized….”Jesus f’n Christ, I’m dating Snooki! What time’s the next flight to Newark?”
6. Real Housewives of New Jersey (Last Week: 7)
I have two words for you….On Display. Enough said.
7. How I Met Your Mother (Last Week: 11)
I’ll tell you what…I want to hate this show, but it’s too funny to truly hate it. Again, I have a theory. It’s a really funny sitcom for 28 minutes, and then they go and put the “ooooohhh….is this the mother???!?!” cherry on the top of each episode and it sucks for the last two minutes and I get all PO’d again. Nonetheless, 28 minutes of good TV will apparently move you up 4 spots in the TVpocalypse poll.
8. Blue Bloods (Last Week: 8 )
9. The X Factor (Last Week: 5)
On the upside, reports of this show being terrible were greatly exaggerated. On the downside, this model might be a bit stale. With that being said, I still have faith in Simon. Four hours might be a bit much for me, but when you throw in an I Touch Myself (a song that was almost the 1992 Bergen Catholic Senior Prom song…another story for another time) cover from a sixty-something year-old woman…it can’t be all that bad.
10. Parenthood (Last Week: 9)
11. Top Chef: Just Desserts (Last Week: 10)
12. Up All Night (Last Week: 13)
13. The League (Last Week: 14)
14. Blue Mountain State (Last Week: 15)
Episode two was all about sexting. And by sexting I mean it dealt with the specifics about how to take good pics of one’s junk, how to effectively frame it for the best reaction, and of course determining whether or not to attribute your face to it. I’m not joking. I couldn’t be, because you can’t make this up. And that would be why I watch.
15. Pan Am (Last Week: 16)
16. The Office (Last Week: 17)
Andy’s the boss, and Spader is still around. Not exactly stunning, but it was probably the best case scenario. It’ll be interesting to see if they can get their mojo back.
17. House (Last Week: 18)
18. Gossip Girl (Last Week: 21)
19. American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior (Last Week: 22)
20. Hung (Last Week: 23)
21. The Playboy Club (Last Week: 25)
It’s not that I loved this show, but I tell you what, I didn’t hate it. This show is such a train wreck that it begs to be watched. I have some very definitive thoughts on this show, but I want to give it one more viewing before I go on a full-on rant (how’s that for a tease?).
22. Happy Endings (Last Week: 24)
Didn’t air and episode and I still haven’t seen more than 6 minutes of this show, yet somehow it creeps up 2 spots…
23. Person of Interest (Last Week: 19)
…and this would be the somehow. Welcome to the Mendoza Line. If you are at or below this line, you are officially in trouble of falling off the TVpocalypse Top 25. This show was even on The Unwatched List, but the only thing that could keep and Unwatched List show from being at the bottom of the poll would be….
24. Fringe (Last Week: 12)
…a disastrous season premiere from a show that needed a really, really good one. In case you missed it.
25. Harry’s Law (Last Week: 20)
What is this show about again?
