Another season of So You Think You Dance premieres tomorrow. Can you believe it’s the tenth season? It just seems like yesterday when the dancing competition began. In its inaugural season, it was all about crowning America’s Best Dancer. Realizing it was just one big popularity contest, it quickly changed to America’s favorite dancer. For the purpose of this post, it’s all about crowning America’s hottest dancer. My kind of contest.
Over the years, FOX’s dancing competition has featured a bevy of flexible studs, dropping it like it’s hot while shirtless and sweaty. Every season there seems to be one or a couple male contestants that captivate the hearts and eyes of teenage girls and horny gay men everywhere. I decided to go back through all the seasons and pick the Top 15 hottest male dancers to ever compete on the show. Will recently-anointed winner Chehon Wespi-Teschopp make the cut? One particular season dominated my list, owning all Top 3 slots. Find out which one and my HOTTEST pick below.
Next to September, this is my favorite time of year when it comes to network television. It’s the time of the year when networks clean house and strut out their brand new offerings, hoping to score a breakout hit. Realistically, most will get the axe and probably some won’t even see the light of day. Just look at NBC. Out of all the networks, they have the most to prove. After starting out strong last Fall, the peacock network stumbled in the Spring. Only two comedies were renewed, Parks and Recreation and Community.
New for the Fall are six comedies, eight dramas and three reality shows. From the trailers that have been released, The Blacklist, Dracula, Welcome To The Family look the most promising. As much as I want to see Sean Hayes and Michael J Fox’s respective comeback vehicles to do well, I think they’ll suffer the same fate Matthew Perry’s Go On experienced. Strong sampling but all downhill from there. Check out the trailers and descriptions below. Be sure to share your thoughts on which shows have the potential to be hits and which are surefire bombs.
RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Jinkx Monsoon graces the cover of the latest issue of Next Magazine. The Season 5 winner, along with her Final 3 sisters sit down with the publication to talk about their experience on the Logo show. Check out a few excerpts from their chat.
Jinkx Monsoon on the filming three separate endings: “It’s at least less bonkers now that Ru tweeted about [shooting three finales] and we don’t have to keep it a secret. It makes it a photo finish and nail-bitingly awesome.”
Alaska Thunderfvck on Alyssa and Coco’s drama: “The thing about [Alyssa and Coco’s] drama w as they were smart about it. They got there and were like, ‘we have drama but we’ll talk about it later.’ You know you’re going to get a few episodes out of your storyline that way!”
Roxxxy Andrews on diversity among the winners: “It’s time to crown a plus-size girl, and no Latino has ever won.”
In other Jinkx Monsoon-related news, the Pacific Northwest queen gets a remix treatment like her RPDR Season 5 castmate Alyssa Edwards. Jinkx delivers a spoken-word monologue in the character of Little Edie, whom Drag Race viewers will remember from the Snatch Game episode, set to the tune of Two Dudes In Love’s ambient chill trans beat. I prefer Alyssa’s remixed track better, but Jinkx’s “Schizophrenic” is perfect to play in the background at your next gathering. Check it out below.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I decided to rotate this post originally published a few years ago. Donovan and myself ranked our favorite all-time television moms. Let’s face it: at one point growing up, we’ve watched a few sitcoms and thought it’d be cool to have one of those TV moms as our own, especially when we were fighting with our real ones ;)
10. Sandy Hogan (Sandy Duncan) The Hogan Family (1986-1991)
Played by Sandy Duncan, she was the aunt that came in to effectively become the surrogate mom of the family after their mother, Valerie Harper, was killed off in the second season. She had a lot to deal with playing the role of the “mother” and it was a very interesting concept for that time, since it was not the conventional perfect family. Oh, do you remember that Jason Bateman was in this show? Here’s a link to the show’s intro to refresh your memory.
10. Elyse Keaton (Meredith Baxter) Family Ties (1982-1989)
There are three different reasons why Elyse Keaton made the list.
Tonight, Jeff Probst reveals the winner of Survivor Caramoan: Fans vs Favorites II. I can’t believe he’s about to do this for the 26th time. The season started out slow, but is one of the more memorable iterations to date. With Brandon Hantz’s epic meltdown, Malcolm Freberg’s insane immunity idol stunt at tribal council and Brenda’s heartwrenching blindside, this season had it all. I thought it was a perfect time to rotate this post and squeeze in this season’s hottie, Eddie Fox, on the list. See where he falls in line.
While the purpose of the game is to Outwit, Outlast and Outplay everyone, there is a far greater prize to be won. Who’s the hottest Survivor guy ever? Since the pool of male hotness was so abundant, I had to split up my list- those who made the jury and those who didn’t. If you’re a regular reader of Homorazzi.com, you might’ve already read my The 10 Hottest Survivor Guys NOT To Make The Jury post, if not, check it out now.
It’s always interesting to see which of the guys end up being my Survivor Man Crush of the season. Sometimes, the ones I find hottest at the beginning, I lose interest in. While the ones who I’m not attracted too initially, only get sexier as each episode airs. Some guys just look hotter with a bit of scruff, more tanned and emaciated. I know you agree with me. The list hasn’t been updated with anyone from the current season…yet. So without further ado, let the countdown begin.
The five major broadcast networks don’t officially announce their 2013 Fall schedules until next week at the upfronts, but that hasn’t prevented a few of them from revealing the fates of a few on-the-bubble shows. On Thursday, two shows I thought were dunzo received a lifeline. Both The Carrie Diaries and Nikita are coming back. HALLELOO. I’m hoping The New Normal also receives another chance.
From now until Monday, I’ll keep updating this list as breaking news happens. Even though some new shows have been announced, this post will focus only cancellations and renewals. I’ll chat about the new series as each network presents at the upfronts next week.
Before we get to the results, a shocking development. I honestly thought Randy Jackson was the cockroach you couldn’t get rid of. Turns out I was wrong. The last original American Idol judge standing announced via E! News that he’s leaving the FOX talent show.
“Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol I have decided it is time to leave after this season,” Randy told E! News. “I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life changing opportunity but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures.”
With him officially going, plus rumors that FOX isn’t exercising any of the second year options on Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj or Mariah Carey, the network has a lot of hiring to do. To boot, there’s also speculation that Nigel Lythgoe isn’t being asked back. Season 13 could either be the end of the veteran singing competition or the dawning of a new era. It all depends on what direction production goes with casting.
Apologies for not recapping Wednesday’s performance show. I was at a restaurant opening and too tired to watch the show when I got home. When I finished watching it, I felt it was ridiculous to post it so late. Instead, I’m going to quickly give my thoughts on last night’s performances. I agree with Jimmy Iovine that Angie won Round 1, but I have to disagree with him and put Candice on top during the second round and again for the last round. If she goes home tonight, it’ll be a huge travesty.
I wholly believe Kree is going home. Though I think it’s time for Harrison to go, she was sabotaged big time last night. All three song choices picked for her didn’t allow her to shine. I can’t believe production is so evil to not let the contestants pick at least one song of their own. To have no power at this stage of the game is completely ridiculous. Without further ado, let’s get to the results.
Kristin Wiig returns to her former stomping grounds this weekend. The 39-year-old comedienne joins Chevy Chase, Bill Murray and Eddie Murphy as former SNL alums who hosted the show the first year after leaving. Joining her as musical guest on Saturday Night Live is Vampire Weekend.
NBC just released a whackload of promos featuring Wiig hyping her stint as guest host. Her former co-star Fred Armisen also appears in the series of videos. From teasing which of her popular characters she’ll resurrect to getting slapped by Armisen, Kristen is up for anything to promote her episode. She even jokes that perhaps an Olivia Newton-John cameo might happen. Highly doubt it, but this hardcore Grease fan can always hope. Check out all the promos below.
