The Bachelorette 3 concludes tonight.
The Bachelorette 3 ends its blessedly rapid run tonight. The whole event will last for three hours–three!–and with host Chris Harrison dragging out the climax as he tends to do, the country will be doubled-over in pain from their Bachelorette blue balls by 10 p.m. But there’s a lot to look forward to: As ABC’s web site helpfully informs us, “For the first time ever, the Bachelorette receives two proposals.” So who will Jen Schefft choose? (I’m not even going to pretend I know the two guys’ names.) Those meanines at People are trying to wreck the suspense with an article that apparently spoils the whole thing; don’t click unless you want your whole night ruined.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
