COMMUNITY! AMERICAN IDOL! PARKS AND REC! Our TV Addict Week in Rewind

And the Most Valuable Guest Star of the Week Goes To… : Parker Posey, whose hilariously biting portrayal of Amy Poehler’s small-town rival has “recurring guest star” written all over it.

The “I Can’t Define Irony But I Know It When I See It Award” Goes To… : President Obama, who interrupted the last fifteen minutes of CELEBRITY APPRENTICE — hosted by nemesis Donald Trump — to announce that Osama Bin Laden had been killed.
 
And You Wonder Why You’re Fat: The best show you’re not watching, Jamie Oliver’s FOOD REVOLUTION, was yanked this week and replaced with… reruns of DANCING WITH THE STARS.
 
Oddest News: Lorenzo Lamas — who will forever be FALCON CREST’s Lance in our minds — announced that he’ll be taking the last name of his latest wife (#5 for those keeping track), Shawna Craig.
 
Call-Out Of The Week: AMERICAN IDOL judge Steven Tyler’s new book accuses CELEBRITY REHAB of faking footage involving former bandmate Steven Adler. “They wanted him to act out his own messed-up state when he entered rehab,” Tyler claims. “It was ghoulish and unreal.” 

Call-Out Of The Week: AMERICAN IDOL judge Steven Tyler’s new book accuses CELEBRITY REHAB of faking footage involving former bandmate Steven Adler. “They wanted him to act out his own messed-up state when he entered rehab,” Tyler claims. “It was ghoulish and unreal.” 


Biggest Shocker: Unlike 98.73% of the uninspired sequels Hollywood tries to shove down audience’s throats, COMMUNITY’s “Fistfull of Paintballs” actually exceeded expectations. Seriously, Josh Holloway can riddle us with paintballs anytime.

Best Time Waster: At work and already read everything on thetvaddict.com? Why not cruise over to jerryseinfeld.com and watch old clips of the comic’s performances and appearances on late night shows?
 
Déjà vu, Primetime Division: Watching THE REAL WORLD’s Leroy and Naomi deal with the repercussions of repeatedly having unprotected sex felt like an exact replay of the last time this show was in Sin City. Longtime viewers will remember that during that fleshfest, it was Steven and Trishelle who feared a visit from the stork.
 
Déjà vu, Daytime Division: THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has two concurrent storylines that could have been ripped from it’s own past. Supposedly-dead Sharon’s life on the farm is more than a little similar to the story in which Victor met Hope, while Sofia’s baby drama couldn’t be a more obvious replay of the famous Malcolm/Dru/Neil story… but without superstars Shemar Moore and Victoria Rowell to make it bearable.
 
Best Reason To Watch A Show Nobody Outside Of New York City Cares About: Neil Patrick Harris will return to host this year’s Tony awards.
 
Proof That Endtimes Have Arrived: This week, The Situation became the fourth JERSEY SHORE cast member to sign a spin-off deal.
 
Best Reason To Stay Up Past Your Bedtime: Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann will appear on THE DAVID LETTERMAN SHOW on Wednesday, May 11.

Biggest Regret: That THE GOOD WIFE, NIKITA and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES remain safely stored on our PVR/DVR for weekend watching. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to stay off Twitter and avoid spoiler free. Seriously, we’re fairly certain we’re going through withdrawal!

  • The episode of Community was AMAZING!!! They really outdid themselves. I can’t wait to see the second part next week! They so kick ass with those paintball episodes (unlike the supposedly “Pulp Fiction” episode which was… very disappointing in my opinion).

  • Awesome awesome Community was awesome.

    Also, about the last bit, GO WATCH THEM NOW.

  • I am watching Community for a second time. I’m afraid the first time my squee overpowered much of the dialog.

  • Best Fake Live TV: goes to the stunt American Idol pulled off to fake the J-Lo performance as live

  • SMH

    I know right! Lol

    Hey everybody google JLo fake idol perforance!

    They did it about 8 days ago with about 10 takes. Such a shame ans discredit to the contestants who actually have to perform live!
