This...is...Jeopardy!!!

Mostly TV topics today...

Have I ever admitted that my favorite television show is Jeopardy? Well...it is. I love useless trivia, and that is where all useless trivia buffs aspire to be. The last two weeks have been the Teen Tournament, which makes me feel smart. Other than the kids tournament and Celebrity Jeopardy, it is the easiest one, and I always know like 80% of the answers.

Why do I bring this up? Well...tonight is day one of the two-day finals, and I am totally in love with one of the girls who made the finals. Her name is Rachel Horn, and she is just about the most adorable thing I have ever seen...and she is super smart, too! Yes, I just admitted to having a crush on a high-school aged Jeopardy contestant...you have a problem with that?

Project Runway reunion show last night, which is just barely enough of a fix to feed my habit until next week. Can anyone tell me if next week is just going to be Chris and Rami, or is it part one of the final episodes? In years past, the final has been a two part episode, and I am trying to figure out if this is episode one of the finals, or if the entire finals will be after this little "play-off" game.

I think I have identified what I love about Heidi Klum so much...she does not use contractions when she speaks. Seriously, pay attention when you hear her talk.

I caught some of American Idol the last two nights...I felt like the guys were better than the girls this year. I like Michael the Australian guy, although his whole hipster-rocker deal may wear thin. I absolutely HATED the 17 year old boy that the judges all loved (David, I think?). On the girls side, I like Brooke for her super, incredibly cool hair. There were a couple others that were pretty good, too. But it is too early to have real favorites.

Lost...I have kinda tried getting into this show, and the recap shows with notes provided are helpful:-) But I get the feeling that they are really big on teasing things that never come. How many times can "All of your questions will be answered!" be promised?

Top Model was back, and I watched a little bit, but not a whole lot. The girls seemed...um...how do I put this nicely...UGLY. I feel like that show has completely run its course and needs to be glue-factoried. I guess the fact that they have had like 10 winners, and have not turned out ONE model that shows up anywhere other than on VH1 shows doesn't speak highly for the premise of the show.

I am a big fan of Rock of Love, while we are on the subject of VH1. Brett Michaels is creepy, but he is kinda funny, and the overall level of crazy-trash in the house is outstanding. I think I am rooting for Megan, who is absolutely GORGEOUS and really funny, too. At least, I think she is...I am assuming that she is always being really sarcastic, but maybe she is just nuts. Also, she was the season two champion on Beauty and the Geek, so she is a game show veteran. I have grown to like Ambre a lot, I think she is pretty normal. And I am intrigued by Kristie Joe, who is really stunning, and seems very articulate and put-together...but is, in reality, bat-shit crazy!!!

The Office is back sometime in April...very excited about that.

I guess that is about all for today's TV roundup. What am I missing?

"Make Me a Supermodel' is so much better than ANTM. First of all, they actually look like models. Secondly, I do enjoy ogling the male models.

Let me see if I can remember it all

1. I love Jeopardy too and picked her as my favorite also. Last night Magoo knew I was watching Jeopardy but didn't know it was the teen tournament - from the other room he heard me scream out - Cameron Diaz. And came in asking me what could Jeopardy possibly have to do with Cameron Diaz. Cheerleaders of course?!?!?

2. PR is a 2 part finale. One next week and then the following week.

3. ANTM. Why was Tyra in a homecoming float??? Is the show that poor that those are the special effects they can afford?

4. I have a strange fascination with Brett Micheals as well. Doesn't everything make him hot???

Ella - Agreed! But Nicki Taylor and Tyson Beckford are both better with their mouths shut!

Anne - Isn't she just the cutest thing ever!

Honestly, Brett Michaels skeeves me out a bit...I can't get past the multitude of STD's that I am sure he has.

I cannot wait for The Office.

My Thursday nights have not been complete since the strike.

Next week's Project Runway will all be about (lovebirds?) Rami and Chris - technically part 1 or a 2-part "finale".

I love Jeopardy! the mostestest, because I, too, am a trivia dork; I love television shows with punctuation marks in their titles; and because it's awesome when Alex pronounces any remotely foreign word ("burrito", for example) with a snotty accent.

Top chef, but it don't start until March.

I was bored, obviously - because I was watching Project Runway with Sarah, and I swear, if Christian said "Fierce" one more time during that show I was going to drive to NYC and punch him in the mouth.
