Nicole Richie in "Candidly Nicole" episode 101

So VH1 premiered 4 shows last week and the numbers are all over the place. 2 of them are absolutely done for, 1 is showing some potential and then there’s Candidly Nicole which at the moment can go either way but probably isn’t on the good side of being saved. VH1 almost wishes Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta could do a little better (not that hitting a season high last night is disappointing) so it could shield the carnage from these flops.

Ratings: Crawling in Catfish


MTV really loves Catfish: The TV Show. They aired the finale, an aftershow and some other kind of special last week. They also renewed the show for a fourth season too.

IMO it’s basic as hell along with their continued failed strategy to keep targeting young women with all of their shows. I’m not sure I see their new shows doing all that much better than the shows they have put on the last several years).

True Blood Season 7 Episode 4 Recap


Despite the last 5 minutes of last week’s episode we had a filler episode. To be honest the first 3 episodes have been regurgitated filler with a couple of “shocking twists” thrown in. If it makes any sense at all, I don’t think this show is really going anywhere. It’s as if the writers want us to believe that everyone is going to die and that will be the resolution.
