Most Wanted: ‘Friends with Benefits’ Tops the List!

20110718-042104.jpg

This week, a movie finally tops the list in this rather slow week, even though there were are a couple of television premieres this week. I also wanted to add a show that has me unexpectedly addicted, and I think you should watch too. Without further interruption, here’s the list!

1. Friends with Benefits

Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis’ latest flick seems to be the usual romantic comedy, and sounds basically identical to Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman’s ‘No Strings Attached,’ but this one is different: they look like they have true chemistry. Early reviews of the film are very positive, citing the chemistry and punchlines toward rom-com stereotypes. This film is looking like a comedy winner, just like another comedy that hit the silver screen this year (Bridesmaides).

2. Degrassi: Now or Never – Season 11 Premiere

The long-running cult hit returns to the states on TeenNick, where it begins fresh off it’s first Emmy nomination. I tuned out after the telenovela-themed season that occurred last summer, but the weekday theme is back! I usually catch up (a marathon of the fall season is airing all day today on TeenNick) and anyone can jump right in, and this will tackle previous generation’s issues, including a pregnancy. Season 11 premieres tonight at 9PM on TeenNick.

3. Jersey Shore Italy (Season 4) Sneak Peek!

Ready to see Snooki crash—on a cop car?! Or what about a possible fight between The Situation and Ronnie? Well, you might get a glimpse as MTV will air the first trailer for Season 4 of Jersey Shore tonight during a new episode of the newly-renewed Teen Wolf.

4. Awkward. – Series Premiere

MTV has has tried so hard to score with a teen audience to have the next cult hit, and the closest they’ve gotten to it is the previously mentioned show above (Jersey Shore). Their latest scripted effort was poorly marketed, but could deliver an audience over time, but the shows future is still unclear, and it hasn’t even premiered yet. All you need to know is that there is a female lead, and that it takes place in a high school, just like every other teenage scripted drama.

5. Big Brother

I always looked at this show as a dumb, poorly made reality show, and maybe it still is (what’s with those 1999 graphics?) but it’s insanely addicting. In all the TV I watch, I still find time for this show, which airs twice a week. There’s constant backstabbing, alliances, and everything I loved about Survivor back in it’s prime. It aired last night, and the live (yes, live!) elimination will take place this Wednesday at 8PM on CBS.

That’s a wrap! Come back next week for an all new Most Wanted List!

The 5 Best New Shows of the Summer

Image

It’s been a stale and uneventful Fall season, with no new runaway hits hitting the schedule except NBC’s midseason musical hit The Voice. The networks also didn’t plan well with their summer schedule. It seems as if they’re taking a break this summer from all the madness, and leaving the competition to cable channels, which have been gaining ground significantly during the summer. Last year, USA was the winner of the summer, with then-freshman action series Covert Affairs helping fuel an already great lineup even further, averaging over 6 million viewers, an astonishing number for cable. TNT was close behind, landing in second for total-day viewers and had the highest-rated show (The Closer) and highest-rated new show (Rizzoli & Isles) last year.

All of the cable shows listed above are returning this summer, so don’t worry. But, if you’re looking for a new show to get addicted to, you’re in luck. A slew of new shows are going to premiere in the coming weeks, and I have the top 5 that you should watch. I looked all over the place and got all the new shows of the Summer, and I quickly started to sift through which where the best. I decided to choose only 5 for the summer, and had to cut some very promising shows, but kept the best in hand. Something that isn’t as shocking anymore is that only 1 broadcast show made the list; the rest were on cable. Also, most of them are scripted, with only 1 being a reality show. Are you ready to see the top 5? Here it is!

Note: The Top 5 will display in a countdown format, with the fifth best show appearing first and the best appearing at the bottom of the post.

5. Love In the Wild (NBC)

I was very cautious about putting this show in the top 5, mainly because it looks like it will lack quality, but which reality show does these days? This show is pretty self-explanatory: People are trying to find love in the wildest of scenarios, which for them happens to be in the jungles of Costa Rica. The promos for the show are giving it a goofy look to it, with many of the singles falling, slipping, and crashing their way to love. I still don’t know if I’ll like the show, but I will watch the first episode and see how similar it is to NBC’s previous jungle disaster I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! Let’s hope it’s not. In any way.

4. Suits (USA Network)

This show is right up USA’s alley, and I’m very excited about it. A lawyer named Harvey Specter (played by Gabriel Macht) looks for a partner and he finds the best of the best, a guy named Mike Ross (played by Patrick J. Adams) but there’s one thing: The guy hasn’t gone to law school and never took the bar exam. Nonetheless, the guy is an academic genius, sucking up books like it’s drinking water. He also has incredible memory, and even though he isn’t certified, Ross knows everything there is to know about law. Count me in!

3. The Glee Project (Oxygen)

In what will be my first foray into the female-skewing network, the basic cable channel hopes to get all demographics (preferably adults 18-49 and kids 12-17) to watch their most high-profile show ever, based spinning-off of Fox’s pop culture phenomenon, Glee. The Glee Project is a reality competition series that aims to look for the next potential star of Fox’s hit musical/comedy. Just like any other competition, members will get eliminated and the last Gleek standing will get a guaranteed seven-episode stint on Glee and if they do well in those seven eps, who knows? They could also become a series regular. Get ready for sing-alongs and drama, just like Glee! Except this is a competition and it happens to air in the Summer.

2. Teen Wolf (MTV)

This striking new series is getting comparisons to The Vampire Diaries for all the good reasons. Scott (played by Tyler Posey) is a high school Sophomore that’s struggling like most to be popular and be in some kind of sport, but one day, that all changes. Scott gets bitten by a wolf in the woods one day and as he recovers, he notices that he isn’t the same as he was before. Before you know it, he realizes he’s a werewolf—oh, and he happens to be a teen. It’s bloody, gritty, and just what I want to see during the summer.

 1. Wilfred (FX)

Have you ever come across something so fresh, so original that it instantly becomes a must-see for you? When was the last time you discovered a revolutionary show? For me, it was two years ago, when Modern Family made its way to ABC’s lineup. Of all networks, FX is the channel to grab the next. Wilfred is a dark comedy about a man named Ryan (played by Elijah Wood) who is on the verge of suicide when an unlikely task is presented to him: dogsitting. The most shocking part of this is that when he sees the dog, he sees a man dressed in a big dog suit and can talk—but the rest of the world sees him as what he rightfully is: a dog. Not enticing yet? Watch the trailers, you’ll get hooked just off of that.

Most Wanted: Teen Wolf Tops the List!

Image

This week, staleness proves strong but there are still some things to look out for. A hit competition series is premiering, and one is winding down to their live shows. Also, a sports series is entering it’s final days (finally!) and a new book has caught my eye. All that and more on the list, down below!

1. Teen Wolf

I’m largely betting on this new drama on MTV, especially since there’s a lacking of scripted programming in the summer. On top of that, I need a bloody show to fill in for The Vampire Diaries. This is MTV’s first scripted drama since ‘Skins,’ and I think they’re being more cautious to market and push this out to teens—to make it less complicated and more twisted and realistic. Let’s hope this ones a hit. Not like MTV needs it too much.

2. America’s Got Talent

The summer’s #1 show is back with a two-hour premiere and it all starts with the (ridiculous) auditions. Last years judging panel is back, which is good. But on the flip side, we have Nick Cannon hosting another year. Great.

3. MTV Movie Awards

Jason Sudeikis will host this year’s ceremony, with Twilight: Eclipse leading the nominations (surprise) with 8, followed by Inception with 7. The Movie Awards has definitely been slacking the last few years, but hopefully they can turn it around if they stop sucking up to teen favorites such as the first film mentioned above. Lupe Fiasco and Foo Fighters will perform as well, so give it a try. 4. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother – Amy Chua

This new and controversial parenting memoir is one of those books you’ll want to read in one session—it’s that interesting. It’s about how particularly “Chinese mothers” (as Chua often says) raise their children for success in modern society. Why is there a stereotype that Asian kids are smart? Get an inside look at how this mom raised her two very different kids in this very intriguing book.

5. The Voice

The final battle rounds are here! It seems like the coaches have saved the best for last, including a very shocking elimination that apparently left Cee-Lo and Adam speechless in NBC’s promos for this Tuesday’s episode. Also, get ready, because after this weeks episode, The Voice will begin it’s live episodes!

That’s a wrap! Come back next week for a Gleekified (hint!) edition of the Most Wanted List!
