Around The Web

Best of Around The WebForget the Cafe Latte, screw the raspberry iced tea.  A Malibu and Coke for you, a G ‘n’ T for me.  Alcohol, your songs resolve like my life never will. When someone else is pickin’ up the bill.  I love you more than I did the week before I discovered alcohol.  BNL

Here is what’s going on around the web for Thursday.

  • Interesting article on why we have to watch so much of The Bachelor.  Basically, it’s a ratings dynamo so ABC uses it to beat down other network shows.  For example, ABC had an extra episode already filmed of The Bachelor without a specific airtime set.  It put it up against NBC’s Smash knowing it would cripple the fledgling show.  So maybe the network execs aren’t all as stupid as I think, but that is an awfully low bar for them to clear.  (TV Guide)
  • Elisha Cuthbert named TV’s most beautiful woman.  I don’t even think she’s the hottest woman on her own show, but what do I know.  (Maxim)
  • No way it’s true, but rumors abound that Honey Boo Boo’s mom could be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars.  I feel sorry for the male dancer that gets this assignment.  (Extra TV)
  • Mark Wahlberg got drunk on British TV show and challenged the host to a fight.  Sure it was inappropriate, but at least it was entertaining.  (The Superficial)
  • Poppy MontgomeryHot actress of the day – Poppy Montgomery from Without A Trace (side note, she is Phil Donahue’s daughter).  (Lazy Girls)
