Taskmaster’s dumb challenges inspire a lot of creativity and humor, and the show really grew on me. The CW is starting to air Taskmaster season 8 in the United States, and seasons 1 to 7 are also free on YouTube.
A review of The CW’s Killer Camp, a playfully stupid show that left me with several questions, such as how the eliminated contestant is chosen to be murdered. I have answers.
The CW is importing four international reality shows this summer: Killer Camp, Taskmaster, Being Reuben, and Fridge Wars.
On paper, The CW’s Capture was The Hunger Games, reality TV style. Halfway through its first season, it instead seems more like Survivor with a game of tag thrown in–and the results are often pretty awesome. (The show airs Tuesdays,… continue reading
This summer has brought several surprisingly entertaining shows, and there’s more coming. Tonight, two very different networks debut very different series that are worth watching, even though each may seem familiar. Capture is on The CW, but it’s produced by… continue reading
The CW’s upcoming musical chairs game show/reality competition with the hilariously ridiculous name Oh Sit! actually looks good–really–perhaps because it seems like a new version of Wipeout. The show’s executive producer, Phil Gurin, told the New York Post “this is… continue reading
After four episodes, The CW has ended the life of H8R, perhaps the fall’s most ill-conceived reality show, although sometime in the future, it may burn off episodes featuring hated celebrities such as Janice Dickinson, Levi Johnston, and NeNe Leakes… continue reading
The CW is planning a new reality competition called The Frame that is basically the now-dead Fox Reality Channel’s show Solitary with elements of Big Brother (there’s a live Internet feed) and The Amazing Race (the living spaces will be… continue reading

The third episode of The CW’s High Society airs tonight, preceded by the network’s debut of Fly Girls, a docudrama that follows Virgin American flight attendants. Last week, 1.2 million people watched, falling from 1.39 million for its premiere. That… continue reading
Last week, The CW debuted High Society, a docudrama following Tinsley Mortimer and other New York socialites including Jules Kirby and Paul Johnson Calderon. Despite Tinsley’s headline-generating life and the latter two being reprehensible and horrifying human beings, the show… continue reading
Blonde Charity Mafia, a docudrama originally ordered by Lifetime last August that follows socialites, Katherine Kennedy, Krista Johnson, and Sophie Pyle, will air this summer on The CW. Besides switching networks, the show has also changed producers, from PB&J Television,… continue reading
More than eight years ago, there was a fantastic series on MTV called, simply, Fear. The series featured a lot of scary moments and maybe even some paranomal activity, and although the show exaggerated the truth of its locations, what… continue reading
The CW’s new competition Stylista, which debuts tonight at 9 p.m. ET, is produced by America’s Next Top Model‘s producers (including Tyra Banks), but it aspires to be like a Bravo competition. Instead, it ends up as a hybrid of… continue reading
Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, The CW debuts its Bachelor clone Farmer Wants a Wife. The series is described by the network as “a comedic reality series that brings city women to one charming, hard-working farmer,” and is based on… continue reading
