A guide to what we’re barely putting up with this week.
Lifetime’s thoroughly entertaining Unreal. Turns out, the best version of The Bachelor is a drama about the behind-the-scenes drama of a faux-Bachelor.
The Tony Awards. The only way to get people less interested in live theater is to put a three-hour theater awards show on television.
Spike’s Guys Choice Awards. The only award show that perfectly encapsulates that feeling of un-ironically hanging a “Mancave” sign in your living room.
News about who is in and who is out of Netflix’s completely unnecessary Full House sequel, Fuller House. Imagine the flurry of excitement when Hulu reboots Step By Step as Step By More Steps!
NBC’s stale celebrity circus, I Can Do That. If a former Pussycat Doll does an aerial act with a lesser Jonas, and nobody watches, does it count as an act?
Mercedes-Benz’ Jurassic World commercial. If you’re going to pretend to drive away from a make-believe theme park full of raging dinosaurs, sure, why not do it in a Benz.
TLC possibly keeping the Duggar franchise alive with a spin-off. That’s enough Duggars, TLC. There have to be other creepy, over-breeding families in fringe religious sects who will eventually be revealed to be outrageous hypocrites to make the stars of their own TLC freak show.
