Yet Another Train Wreck...

Last night we found probably a new all time low in TV viewing choices. Sunday nights leave a bit to be desired on the TV viewing front and of course it's the evening that we most like to veg out in front of the TV before heading back into another hectic week.

Last week we checked out Confessions of a Teen Idol on VH1. Honestly we tuned in to see which "Teen Idols" would be on the show and stuck around to see what exactly was going to happen. We forgot to tune in last night, but did catch the last 20 minutes. When was Adrian Zmed a teen idol? Now Billy Huffsey...remember him from Fame? He was hot! Keyword there WAS ~ yeah, not so much anymore. Christopher Atkins is still looking good after all these years, though I'll admit I've never seen Blue Lagoon...I was too young when it came out and never went back and watched it. Though Mike fondly remembers him from The Pirate Movie...which unfortunately I've seen thanks to free On Demand movies.

Of course Sunday nights brings the obligatory Desperate Housewives, which we will both admit to watching. Though Mike says he'd prefer to watch Rock of Love Bus...he loves trashy women (and yes, I'm not dumb, I know what he's saying there) and of course this show is chocked full of them. We jumped back & forth during commercials and all I can say is WOW ~ I've never seen so many fake boobs before in my life! And seriously Brett Michaels...are you really loooking for love or just hanging on to those last strands of semi-fame and using it to sleep with every trashy woman on the planet? Puh-leeze

But the crowning jewel of Sunday nights TV watching had to be back on VH1 for Tool Academy. The guys on the show were literally tools. The worst part is trying to figure out why these dumb women are still with them trying to change them....why don't they just leave???? That was the ultimate train-wreck. Unfortunately, we'll probably be tuning in the next few weeks since there is nothing else on Sunday nights at 10pm...God help us. It appears that it will be running again tonight at 10:30 if anyone is interested in some serious trashy T.V.

Saturday night after our marathon of bad 80s movies (Mannequin, Licensed to Drive, Weekend at Bernies, Vacation, Doc Hollywood & Better Off Dead) we stopped on ABC and ended up catching the tail end of True Beauty being re-run. Of course we had to stay on it because Mack was sucked into the train wreck even though we told her who was going home. Aaaaarrrrrgggghhhh!

Thankfully I've got the Bachelor tonight and Biggest Loser tomorrow night ~ whew!

And I've been warned that American Idol starts soon doesn't it?

God help us all.

Adrian Zmed was a teen idol right around "Grease 2" wasn't he? "I'm goin' back...back...back to school again!"

LOL Scott, that's what we keep referring to, but they keep bringing up T.J. Hooker! Honestly I didn't consider him an "idol"

Mike I wouldn't know...don't watch that American Idol crap...believe it or not!
