    I am not ashamed to say that at 44, I not only watch Jersey Shore, I love it.  I don’t know what it is that is so appealing, but they are completely entertaining.  I have become invested in them and actually wish them well.  I think Jenny and Snooki are hilarious, and inherently... read on

    I love American Idol.  I watch it, I vote, I think Ryan Seacrest is annoying, and I blog about it.  Well I used to blog about it, until I got bored.  The last couple of years have been painful to watch.  Ellen, while fantastic, never belonged there, and Kara was not entertaining, and... read on
