The Weekly Pulse: TV's Second Wife

WOW! This place is really dead around here! More than usual. Call it the pre-‘Big Brother’ MADNESS! Next week..’Big Brother 7: All-Stars’ begins and I hope you all voted the same way I did! You did? GOOD! We will find out for sure on Thursday when the show starts and the 12 houseguests in the house are revealed!

Lets see..I did see a few new shows this week. I saw ‘Master of Champions’ on ABC. Not that bad. Not that great either. Another reality show featuring crazy people doing crazy stuff. I saw ‘America’s Got Talent’ on NBC. This show is stupid! But it’s dumb enough..that it actually works. People are watching it so far, So we will see if that continues. But Regis is so annoying and serves no purpose on the show! I saw a few new shows on A&E as well..’Intervention’ and ‘King of Cars’. Nothing special either. But good enough to continue to watch them..for now. Finally, I saw ‘The Dead Zone’ on the USA Network and I liked that a lot. I plan on watching ‘Monk’ and the new show, ‘Psych’, next Friday as well. ‘Psych’ looks to be a great show and I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

With that being said..nothing else from me. We are down to our final three houseguests in the ‘Big Brother’ tournament. Who is the best ‘Big Brother’ houseguest EVER?!?! You can decide this week..right before ‘Big Brother 7: All-Stars’ begins! Keep reading to find out how to make your final vote. But first..enjoy the rest of the week that was here at IPTV!!

Seinfeld Quote Conversation (Greatest EVER!) of the Week

George: Well, if I hear you correctly, and I think that I do, my advice to you is to finish your meal, pay the check, leave here and never speak to anyone about this again.

Jerry: Can’t be done, huh?

George: The switch?

Jerry: The switch.

George: Can’t be done.

Jerry: I wonder.

George: Do realize in the entire history of western civilization no one has successfully accomplished the roommate switch. In the Middle Ages you could get locked up for even suggesting it.

Jerry: They didn’t have roommates in the Middle Ages.

George: How do you know?

Jerry: Well, for one thing they didn’t have apartments.

George: Well, I’m sure at some point between the years 800 and 1200 somewhere there were two women living together.

Jerry: The point is I intend to undertake this. And I’ll do it with or without you. So if you’re scared, if you haven’t got the stomach for this, let’s get it out right now. And I’ll go on my own. If not, you can get onboard, and we can get to work. Now what’s it gonna be?

George: All right, damn it, I’m in.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Columns a.k.a. Who Wants to Go to the Beach?!?!

Mathan Erhardt only watched about half of the shows he usually watches, so he does something different this week. He talks about random things. He tells you why he loves and hates HBO On Demandâ„¢ at the same time. He has praise for a HBO show called ‘The Wire’. There is more hate for Digital Max, and Mathan even throws in a dream from a reader! All of that and MORE this week!

Romo has a preview for the new Canadian drama, ‘Whistler’, on the CTV. So if you live in Canada and have that network, be sure to check out what Romo thinks of this show!

Matt Basilo talks about Britney Spears and her problems with the paparazzi. He also has some TV talk with ‘The 4400’! Hey..it’s the summer time..what do you expect?!

DeeDee is upset with the fact that she has seen A LOT of David Hasselhoff in the past few weeks! And I agree..that’s WAY too many sightings of The Hoff. And it’s not just him being a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent’. See where else he showed up!

Kevin Wong had a busy week doing recaps of reality shows, installing ceiling fans, and other crazy stuff! So he just talks a little bit about “The Fight Network” in Canada along with ‘Gameshow Marathon’ and ‘The Ultimate Fighter’! Go see what all he had to say in this slow week!

****PROGRAMMING ALERT****

Just a note here. My “MTV Mix” column for this week will be pushed back until next week. I will have a double dose of each show next week. The reason is because..well..you will see why when you read it. But it’s just better I wait to combine two week’s worth of shows into one column. So look for that next week!

****END ALERT****

Recaps a.k.a. The Summer Fling!!

Murtz was there LIVE for the first ‘Canadian Idol’ episodes this summer featuring the “Top 22”! He saw the guys perform on night #1 and then the next night it was time for the girls to do their thing! Murtz got a seat right behind one of the judges. Amazing! This guy is my hero!

Kevin Wong has a new guy with him named “Idolhead” Ed Hampton. They team up to recap ‘Canadian Idol’ as well. They have episode #1 (guys) and #2 (girls)! So you have 3 guys with different opinions on this show. Good enough for you?! And just so he can compete with me, Kevin also recaps another episode of ‘Tresure Hunters’!

I fall behind with only 1 show right now and that is still on MTV. But technically..I do all the “primetime” MTV shows, so that could count as more than 1. Anyways..here is the latest from the ‘Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat’!

This week we had ZERO DVD reviews! NOTHING!

Celebrities a.k.a. Roxanne Debuts!!!

Former ‘Apprentice’, Roxanne Wilson, takes a page from Murtz’s book as she does her first interview with Tarek Saab from ‘The Apprentice 5’!

Time to Talk a.k.a. The Final 3!!

The semifinal round of voting is done! We are down to 3 houseguests! Who is left? Well..here are the results of the semifinals:

Kaysar Ridha (BB6) – 13
Danielle Reyes (BB3) – 7

Will Kirby (BB2) – 18
Jason Guy (BB3) – 2

Lisa Donahue (BB3) – 1
Janelle Pierzina (BB6) – 19

So the three houseguests that have blown away the competition from the beginning have made it to the end of this thing? It’s Kaysar vs. Will vs. Janelle. No surprise there. However, I was a little shocked that Kaysar had a tough fight with Danielle to get to the finals, while Will and Janelle blew away their competition. It was probably only because Danielle was the strongest of the houseguests from ‘Big Brother 3’. But Kaysar is in regardless and we are ready for the ultimate battle.

Remember..to help with your final voting, you may need a reminder of who these people were. So I suggest you go to these websites to refresh your memory on Seasons #2 and #6!

Here are the final brackets:

“Best ‘Big Brother’ Houseguest EVER!”

Finals

Kaysar Ridha (BB6) vs. Will Kirby (BB2) vs. Janelle Pierzina (BB6)

We are down to only three houseguests. The “Top 3” are in the “Final 3”. Who is the best ‘Big Brother’ houseguest EVER?!?!? We are about to find out and it’s up to YOU to decide! ‘Big Brother 7: All-Stars’ is just about ready to start up next week and right before the show airs we will crown the greatest ‘Big Brother’ houseguest EVER! These three are a lock to be in the house, in my opinion, but will they survive until the end on ‘Big Brother 7’? You will have to wait to find that out, but you can crown one of them the BEST..NOW! All you have to do is VOTE! This is the most important poll of them all!

That’s all I got this week! Any questions, comments, or suggestions are always welcome!

Remember..“Life Ain’t Always Beautiful, but It’s a Beautiful Ride!”

And as always…“You Can’t Fight Fate!”. See you when I see you!
