How Animal Planet’s The Last Alaskans was produced, and why the show is so different from other shows about Alaska and all of reality TV.
Big Brother 17 was the most-watched Wednesday evening show and had what CBS said was “its largest audience for a premiere since July 12, 2012.” Yet a number of viewers stopped watching in the middle of the premiere. Perhaps that can be explained with what happened on Thursday, when the show introduced its first BB… continue reading
Life Below Zero‘s 11th episode last week ended with Sue Aiken flying off her snowmachine, literally. It turns to the left, flips, and she flies through the air and tumbles into snow. Thursday’s season finale of the National Geographic Channel reality series deals with the aftermath, though the episode jumps ahead in time quickly. I… continue reading
Imagine you arrived at party and the host greeted you with a warm welcome, and then threw a handful of confetti at you. As it fell to the floor, you looked around and realized: that’s it. That was the party. That’s how I felt after watching Big Brother 17‘s premiere, which quickly felt uninspired. It’s… continue reading

If you’d like Amazing Race 27 spoilers as the teams travel, follow the sleuths at Reality Fan Forum.

Three people were medically evacuated from Survivor 32, the season of the CBS show that filmed this spring and will air next spring. (Season 31, Survivor Second Chance, is currently filming.) That’s according to executive producer Mark Burnett, who said that during The Hollywood Reporter’s Emmy roundtable. In a question about contestants are ever pushed… continue reading
It took nine minutes for the metal to start flying on ABC’s revival of BattleBots, but once it did, it was as awesome as I remember. In a battle that appeared terribly mismatched, a brightly painted lawnmower blade against what seemed like a more sophisticated robot, the destruction started immediately, as the lawnmower, IceWave, tore through… continue reading
The Amazing Race will have its second public start Monday morning, as the 27th season begins in southern California.

The show invited fans to show… continue reading
