I tuned in early to NBC so I wouldn't miss the start of our show and, boy, am I glad I did because Celebrity Family Feud featured the staff of The Office. And by staff I mean all the actors whose real names you don't know. Now don't get me wrong, one thing I love about that show is that the characters are so realistic (and the actors so good at being understated) that it is incredibly difficult to imagine certain actors as anyone but the character they play on TV. Luckily the writers and producers of Celebrity Family Feud know this and made the actors wear nametags with their character's name on it to avoid confusion with reality. Thanks guys! So the lesser-known players from The Office are competing against some crew of misfits billed as "Camden County." I don't know who that lot is, but they looked like the cast for the remake of The Beverly Hillbillies where Jed is a drunken lifeguard and Ma is a two-bit Mary Ann with Janis Joplin hair. As the show's producers would have it, the staff from The Office handily beat the actors? (seasonal residents? janitorial staff?) of Camden County. Oscar then won $50,000 (for his favorite charity, natch). Go Oscar! Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Last week 43 million people willingly lost brain cells to watch this show. 43 million. Welcome back to America's Got Talent and hello ... Atlanta? WTF?? My DVR info clearly stated that we were going to be in Las Vegas this week for callbacks. I was very excited to be done with the idiot parade that has made up the auditions thus far. I was ready for stock footage of the Las Vegas strip. I was prepared for shots of casinos and dramatic camera angles of slot machines. I was even prepared for a glimpse of either Celine Dion or Cirque du Soleil. I was ready. I even had half a bottle of Trader Joe's finest three-dollar wine (chilled even!). I was prepared. I was not prepared for more Atlanta auditions. Unless they are bringing back Busty Heart. Then I am prepared. Did y'all see this ? It's amazing! And totally NSFW. As if Busty Heart is ever safe for work.
