The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #175

Shark Week picDon't forget that it's Shark Week on Discovery Channel!

We spent last weekend still catching up on the comedy news shows from the past week or so... I was out of town for ten days, and it's been SO hard catching up since then! I don't have a lot to talk about because Summer is not my big time for watching TV. It's time for traveling and having fun....

A lot of my friends and family live in San Diego, so they go to the SanComic-Con logo Diego Comic-Con every year! I haven't been to it in a long time, but I still miss going. Maybe one day I'll get to go again. We'll have photos from that event because some of our volunteers go to it and take exclusive photos for our site every year!

As always, I worked on our Primetime News and Schedule page each weekend. Angie sends me the basic network blurbs, and then I put in more from my emails and from others I find at, and then I find all of the trailers, sneak peeks, previews and video clips for the shows that I can find... This week's page is here, and next week's is here (check back because I do that page on Saturdays).

MayaI was watching "Bold & The Beautiful" because of the transgender storyline, but now I give up because there is not enough of that and too much of the triangle with the same old people, Ivy/Liam/Steffy/Wyatt. The only person that's different is Ivy, and she's no Hope. I watched earlier this week, only because I read that Fred Willard would be appearing again. He's always great. I got to interview him and Kevin Nealon once on the phone (they wereFred Willard and John McCook hilarious!) and I also met him in person once in 1995 when he came to my town for a fund raiser (I didn't get a photo, unfortunately!).

The only interesting thing this past week was Aly going crazy again, but it came out of the blue, since they supposedly cured her problems last year. Of course, that was way too pat and too quick, but it might have been helpful if they'd explained why she has or hasn't been going to a psychiatrist and/or getting medication for her problems. I mean, these are rich people in L.A. -- they go to therapy at the Alydrop of a hat there. It makes no sense that Aly wouldn't be already getting help. I realize that it would make a boring show if everyone's all healthy and sane, but then that's why they have to give us a very good reason why she's gone bonkers again.  Not to mention, Pam had her own mental problems and is on medication, so they're all very familiar with this sort of thing. It makes no sense.  Also, they keep doing the same crazy-girl stories over and over. Last time it was Quinn. Enough already.

We still could really use someone to help us write "Young & The Restless" updates occasionally when our regular writers can't do it. Please email me if you can help out!Defiance's Irisa and Nolan

I finally caught up with "Defiance" last week. It's such a good show. I love the stories that twist and turn, and the acting, and the relationships. I also caught up on "Beauty & The Beast," which is a fun show.

Don't forget that you can see all of the new stuff we've put up every day on our What's New Page!

women of "The Astronauts Wives Club" on ABCI have a whole list of new shows to watch and review for our site. It's so easy to get behind on these reviews! Tonight I'm watching a bunch of shows that premiered recently, like "Zoo," "The Astronaut Wives Club," "Complications," "Proof" and others. Then I'll write it up for the site.Boris (Campbell Scott)

I'm enjoying "Royal Pains" as always. I'm so sad that it's on its last season. I love Boris and will miss him. I have a great cactus, very prickly, and I named it after him! Like him, it's very attractive ;)

This summer I'm also keeping up with "The Whispers," "Major Crimes" and "Rizzoli & Isles." I'm a little behind on "Unreal," "Wayward Pines," and "Mr. Robot," but not too bad, so I'll be catching up on them soon.

I hope you had a nice Fourth of July! I didn't really watch much TV during Boston Popsthe holiday, but I know they had lots of fireworks celebrations, and lots of music. Here's something I didn't know. Apparently CBS used to air the Boston Pops Fourth of July concert, but in 2012 CBS decided to stop showing it, due to low ratings.  You can now watch it online, and locally on TV still, of course, if you live in Boston.

For years I've been on Twitter and Facebook, but I finally joined Instagram (my account is a personal one, not about TV). It's fun to take lots of pretty photos. Lots of celebrities are on there, like on the other two. They postFood Network Star tons of great photos. I enjoyed seeing all the fireworks photos and videos!

What new shows are you watching this summer?
