“You’re either in, or you’re out.” In addition to cranking out catchphrases, Heidi Klum has kept her infectious runway reality show going for nearly a decade. Project Runway pits designers against each other as they create ensembles to be shown on the catwalk and judged by big names in fashion.

When one of the guys behind Mr. Show and Between Two Ferns creates a podcast-turned-television series, you can’t expect a modern day Johnny Carson. Scott Auckerman's Comedy Bang! Bang! playfully spoofs the conventional talk show format, featuring interviews, shorts and skits  

Doin’ Bad Things in Bon Temps

A few seconds of True Blood’s opening credits (set to Jace Everett’s “Bad Things”) are all it takes to set the mood and excite audiences of the intoxicating vampire drama, which returns for a fifth season Sunday (9 p.m., HBO). With flashes of alternating sexual and religious, gritty, Southern-fried, swampy images, this intro perfectly encapsulates what fans love about the show without even mentioning vampires.

Ever since the days of Stick Stickly (Nickelodeon’s popsicle stick seasonal host of the ’90s), I’ve loved me some summer television. When you get burnt out on bikinis and barbeques, crank up the AC, crack open a beer and check out these summer shows.

Coming Distractions: 'Veep,' 'Around the World in 80 Plates'

Upcoming shows and recent TV announcements

Based on the style of BBC sitcom The Thick of It, HBO’s Veep (10 p.m. Sundays) stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the Vice President of the United States. For those of us who’ve had more than their fill of Sarah Palin after the channel’s movie Game Change, don’t worry — this is a fictional storyline not based on any gun-toting beauty queens. The comedy follows the less-than-glamorous day-to-day tasks of V.P. Selina Meyer. Think Parks and Recreation if Leslie Knope made it to the White House. Selling point: Tony Hale (otherwise known as Buster Bluth) plays her bodyguard. Veep premieres April 22.Did you watch that Portlandia sketch about the fictional restaurant Around the World in 80 Plates, “a culinary voyage across the seven seas of flavor,” and think that would be a great premise for a food and travel show? Well, the folks over at Bravo did (or it at least seems like it) when they created a new reality show where chefs compete while traveling across the world, entitled — wait for it — Around the World in 80 Plates (10 p.m. Mondays). Chefs Cat Cora and Curtis Stone host. Tune in May 9 for the premiere to see if Craig’s Crazy Guac Tacs are involved in any way (fingers crossed).Move over, Kardashians — there’s a new family in E! town. Mrs. Eastwood & Company (10 p.m. Sundays) takes the ubiquitous reality formula to Northern California, focusing on the lives of Clint’s wife, Dina, and two of his daughters, Francesca and Morgan. The ladies live on a sprawling ranch complete with a sassy housekeeper and herd of pets. The show focuses on the Eastwoods’ pet project, grownup boyband, Overtone. Hit show or hot mess? Find out May 20 when the series debuts.Other recent show announcements include the following premiere dates: HBO's True Blood (9 p.m. Sunday, June 10), TNT's revival of Dallas (9 p.m. Wednesday, June 13) and my guiltiest of pleasures, Showtime's The Real L Word (10 p.m. Thursday, July 12).
 
 

Vampires Suck (Review)

Spoof a lame, pointless take on the current vampire craze

0 Comments · Monday, August 23, 2010
Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the team that brought us the 'Scary Movie' sequels, 'Epic Movie' and 'Disaster Movie,' return with a pointless take on vampire movies thanks to the runaway success of the 'Twilight' series. Grade: D.  

Scared but Happy in Madeira

Dear Maija, I am seriously afraid of monsters. I hate scary movies, Halloween and freaky looking people. Well, the other day I went to my friend's house to watch reruns of 'Sex and the City,' and she turned on this crazy new show about vampires and, like, five minutes into it there was full-on sex!
