Most Wanted: The VMAs!

20110822-071148.jpg

Finally! We’re back to normal. Sorry guys, I took a small break from the site and had some much-needed lazy time. It’s all over now, but it’s cool, because this week’s list is a good one! We have a big award show taking place this week (NOT THE EMMYS!) and some noteworthy shows & flicks, including a sneak peek at a new MTV series, and a funny new comedy opening this weekend. Let’s get to it! Here’s the list!

1. MTV Video Music Awards

The VMAs are here! The hostless event, taking place this Sunday, is sure to please many, as the performing lineup is so broad, you could mistake it for the Grammys. Adele (ADELE!), Bruno Mars (BRUNO MARS!), Lady Gaga (GAGA!), Lil Wayne (WAYNE!), Chris Brown, and Young the Giant(GIANT!) are set to perform, and who knows? Maybe more might perform! Something always happens at this awards show, what will this years show bring? Whatever it is, you’ll find it here!

2. The Glee Project Finale

How perfect was it?! Happy ending that satisfied everyone. It was so great! Go Samuel, Damian, Lindsay and Alex!

3. I Just Want My Pants Back – Sneak Peek

This new MTV series still has a while to go until it officially premieres, but viewers will get a taste of this new romantic drama right after the VMAs. The show is about two young lovers in Brooklyn and their relationship. Will it soar or will it crumble? We’ll find out right after the big show.

4. Big Brother

Another twist hits the Big Brother house as Jeff becomes the first male to win Head of Household, and he (SPOILER ALERT!) puts up Kalia and Porsche. The thing is, if Danielle wins the Power of Veto and saves one of them, she could be put up on the block instead. On top of that, there’s a double elimination this week! So much drama!

5. Pumped Up Kicks – Foster the People

Do I hear the song of the Summer? Yes, this is it. Download it now!

That’s a wrap! Come back next week, where I’ll show my love for an incredible publication, and a hilarious-looking show makes it’s premiere! That’s all for this week’s edition of the Most Wanted List!

That’s a wrap! You can lookup all of these topics on Google News and see what all they hype is about regarding all of them. Sorry about the delay, I’ll be sure to have a full-featured list next Monday! Come back next week for a freshly new Most Wanted List!

Most Wanted: Jersey Shore is back!

20110801-062341.jpg

This week happens to be a big one. This Most Wanted list is the most eventful in weeks, and is starting out August with a bang. For starters, one of the biggest reality shows ever returns! Plus, a week dedicated to a certain big fish begins. Also, a big collaboration album, a television convention, and a thrilling freshman finale are all on this weeks list, down below!

1. Jersey Shore – Season 4 Premiere

It’s baaack! The ratings juggernaut that only rivaled American Idol—yes, AMERICAN IDOL!—returns for it’s fourth season, and from the looks of the promos, it could be the craziest season ever. And that’s saying a lot. There will be a lot of the usual (sex, partying, drinking, and fighting) but something that has never happened will occur: fighting between male cast members. That I want to see, especially because Mike (The Situation) will be one of the two fist-fighting. This season looks to be good!

2. Jay Z & Kanye West – Watch the Throne

The long-awaited collaboration between Jay Z and Kanye West is finally here, and two of hip-hop’s finest could set a big first-week sales for Watch the Throne, set to be available early on iTunes this week.

3. Television Critics’ Association Awards

Right before the Emmy Awards season begins to heat up, the Television Critics Association hosts a press tour with many cable, premium and broadcast networks showcasing their upcoming shows. Also, right after their press tour, they also host an award show. No one hypes this broadcast, but many say this is a good indication of who might win at the Emmys, and that’s definitely a reason to watch. All of TV’s finest will be in attendance at the 27th Annual Television Critics Association Awards (TCA Awards), taking place August 6th with host–get this–Nick Offerman (from NBC’s Parks and Recreation

4.Shark Week

Discovery takes great pride in airing this annual event, where the schedule is dominated by programming of the fierce and large fish. Now entering its 25th year, Shark Week never seems to get old to Discovery viewers, and it definitely shook me (refer to this tweet.) Shark Week has takes place all week on Discovery, with new programming airing during primetime.

5. Falling Skies – Season Finale

TNT’s epic new series has been doing pretty great in the ratings, and has viewers hooked in the alien invasion that is Falling Skies. I haven’t seen any episodes beyond the pilot, but I’ve been told that I’m missing out on a very great show. Hope I catch up by this Sunday!

That’s a wrap! There’s tons of other things to look out for this week, like ABC Family’s Switched at Birth, which airs its penultimate 2011 episode tonight, and Oxygen’s The Glee Project, which had a shocking contestant exit last night and will air another episode this Sunday. Also, make sure to watch Big Brother! I keep refraining from saying I’m officially addicted, but I don’t think that can hold on much longer! Make sure to come back back next week for another edition of the Most Wanted List!

Britney Spears is #1 with ‘Femme Fatale’

Image

This comes as no surprise for anyone who pays attention to the music biz. Britney Spears’ ‘Femme Fatale is #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, making it her sixth #1 album.

‘Femme Fatale’ sold 276,000 copies in it’s first week, which is much lower than her last album ‘Circus’ did back in 2007 when that album sold an incredible 506,000 copies in it’s first week. ‘Femme Fatale’ wasn’t predicted to perform as high as ‘Circus,’ since ‘Circus’ was seen as a comeback album for Britney after her erratic behavior in the middle of the preceding decade. It is one of the lowest debuts of her career, but the entire music industry has been down sharply, even compared to 2007.

She is now currently tied at #3 with the most #1 albums by a female artist along with Mariah Carey. Madonna is second with 7 #1’s and Barbara Streisand is far along the pack with 9 #1 albums, still the most for a female artist. Her last #1 was in 2009.

Either way, Britney has a hit on her hands with the album, as it’s getting great reviews and already has a #1 single under its belt (Hold It Against Me) and her new single, ‘Till the World Ends’ just premiered its spectacular music video today.
