VMAs TONIGHT!

It’s that time of year! In the words of Adam Levine, it’s the “one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music” as the long-running awards show takes place tonight in Los Angeles.

Performers are seemingly being added by the hour, and it’s an advertiser’s dream: Bruno Mars, Adele, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Beyoncé, Jay-Z & Kanye West, Young the Giant, and Lady Gaga. Need I say more? This is going to be a jam-packed show with basically no time to spare. Most of this year’s performers are nominated, and there’s sure to be something crazy. Call me crazy, but I think it will have to do something with Lady Gaga’s wardrobe. How will she top last year’s meat dress? You’ll have to find out tonight when the MTV Video Music Awards airs tonight at 9PM on MTV, and BY THE WAY, There is an all-new episode of Jersey Shore airing tonight before the VMA pre-show. The special post-fight episode of Jersey Shore airs tonight at 7PM on MTV. Also, the sneak peek of a new MTV series named I Just Want My Pants Back will air right after the VMAs.

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!

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!

2 days, 2 E! ‘True Hollywood Story’ specials

20110727-072908.jpg

It’s been a while since E! aired new specials of it’s long-running documentary series True Hollywood Story, and they seldom air new episodes within months. Oddly, this week will include 2 specials: 1 is brand new and the other is an extension of an old one.

Tonight, E! is giving Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi her own True Hollywood Story in a one hour special that will include friends from the show (Vinny, Sammi, J-Woww) and family members. As I mentioned in my Most Wanted List post, she’s only been on the radar for less than 20 months and has already gotten the THS treatment.

The following day will have the update of the True Hollywood Story of Amy Winehouse. The original special aired back in 2008 and will be updated with important events from that point to her death last week. Speaking of Winehouse, MTV will air a special tribute concert tomorrow at 6:30PM, which includes the late singer performing a concert back in her prime for the cable network.

THS: Snooki airs tonight at 10PM and THS: Amy Winehouse will air tomorrow night at the same time slot.

Most Wanted: Google+ back on top!

20110725-060911.jpg

This week, I have to admit a regretful week, and that was last week. Had I known, I would’ve put Comic-Con 2011 as the #1 thing to look out for. Unfortunately, the dates where screwed up in my head and I thought that the convention would be held at a later date. Still, it was a decent list with Friends with Benefits on top. Why? Because Mila Kunis is AMAZING. Anyway, this week we see a lot of new “specials” and A recent #1 pick come back on top as well as one of my favorite artists ever. Without further interruption, here’s the list! Down below…

1. Google+

Google’s fledging social network has been in a “private field beta” for nearly a month now, and if the reports are true, it should go public by the end of this week. Mashable is reporting that Google will delete all private Google+ profiles on July 31st, and that will also be the date for the public opening of Google+. Whether Mashable is correct in their reporting is still to be discovered, I do trust them, and hopefully Google will open it by this Sunday. Us teens haven’t been able to go on Google+ since Google has put an age limit of 18 to use the site.

2. True Hollywood Story: Snooki

I am still amazed and quite frustrated as to why Chelsea Handler hasn’t gotten the True Hollywood treatment, and even more amazed that after only 18 months of sudden fame, Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore has, and that THS: Snooki will air this Wednesday at 10. I’m not complaining though, it should be an entertaining hour, and you have to admit, it’s a pretty crazy story—so it’s perfect for E!

3. Adele iTunes Festival London EP

The 2011 iTunes Festival is winding down, but I’ve already considered it over, since Adele has already attended. Her performance was nothing short of incredible, with spot-on vocals and teasingly-funny banter with the crowd. The songs performed have now made their way to iTunes in a six-song EP, which includes a never-performed cover “I Cant Make You Love Me” and live performances of songs from her latest album, 21.

4. Tabloid

This documentary comes right off the heels of the massive News of the World phone-hacking scandal, and it’s having tremendous success on the critical side. The film focuses on a 70s celeb who falls under the pressure and lights of the paparazzi and tabloids, all while being crazy in love, which ends up destroying her career. As I mentioned before, the film has been getting rave reviews and has a smitten 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.

5. My Birthday

Although I think that this will be the worst in recent memory, I will hopefully have I nice cake and eat the entire thing myself (I love cake).

That’s a wrap! Come back next week for a fresh, new Most Wanted List!
