Showrunner of the Week: Regardless of where your Winchester loyalty lies, this TV Addict thinks showrunner Eric Kripke deserves some serious kudos for poking the beast… err… we mean the SUPERNATURAL fandom and speaking out on an issue he felt needed clarification. It’s official, Dean is not a “Dick.”
Showrunner of the Week (Runner-Up): Call me an obsessed dog owner (which by the way, guilty as charged, see Mac), but this week’s Showrunner of the Week (Runner-Up) is Shonda Rhimes, for doing what she does best. Taking another tried and true television cliché, which in PRIVATE PRACTICE’s case revolved around your standard troubled teen and parlaying it into an interesting story complete with a surprisingly emotional ending.
Reminder You’re Getting Old of the Week: Following last week’s flashback to Sarah’s (Yvonne Strahovski) High School days on CHUCK which featured some ‘classic’ tracks courtesy of Paula Cole, Hanson and Chumbawamba, it’s official. This TV Addict is starting to feel really old. Begging the question, what’s next, a Backstreet Boys Reunion Tour? Oh wait…
Mystery of the Week: Why SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE continues to allow an unfunny ‘character’ from Kenan Thompson to zap the momentum of Weekend Update every single week.
Conflicted Casting of the Week: While it is always great to see ALIAS alum Carl Lumbly (Marcus Dixon) on the small screen, was a GREY’S ANATOMY patient-of-the-week seriously the best his agent could come up with? Somebody get this man a series, and stat!
Career Killer of the Week: After managing to do the impossible — make an UGLY BETTY Marc and Amanda story look tedious — could Lindsay Lohan’s career be anymore over?
theTVaddict.com Comment of the Week: In Response to theTVaddict.com’s question as to whether or not you’ll be checking out HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3, reader DAVID ID had this to say, “Not even if Vanessa Hudgens went naked on the internet to promote her career and make a DVD film series launch into theaters… oh wait.”
