Tonight, 2 new episodes of Howie Do It were so hillarious. The first prank was another infomercial gone wrong, but what made this one funnier that the previous ones was the “exercise” that the Mark was told to do to prevent the side effect. There was also another fake auction, but this time the Marks didn’t mistakenly buy the item, instead they “accidentally” rolled the car over and hit someone 😆 My absolute favorite prank of the night was the fake long-lost-relative reality show. A guy was called in to inherit a large sum of money from an old lady, and it turned out she had a huge debt. So not only he inherited $26 million in property and money, he also inherrited $26 million with extra 20k in debt, which made him owe $20,000. It was soooo funny, you have to watch it for yourself. Go watch it online at nbc.com

This is from last Saturday’s SNL which Zac Efron hosted. He’s there to promote his new movie 17 Again, which looks promising, but I’m not sure if I’m going to watch it on the movie or wait for the DVD. He’s not really funny on his skits – not really his thing, except this one. Enjoy 🙂

This week’s race was still in Thailand, but they moved to Bangkok, the capital. All teams boarded the same flight to Bangkok, and Margie & Luke led the race since they left the airport. The first task was to go to a boat dock, where one of the team members had to attach propeller for their boat. Margie did the task fast, followed by Jamie. Victor & Tammy who arrived to the dock third, had trouble fixing the propeller, making them the last team to finish the task. However, both Mark & Michael and Jen & Kisha left their baggages on the dock and their taxis. And this cost them a lot of time.

The next task was a detour: Broken Teeth or Broken Record. Only Margie & Luke chose to do the Broken Teeth where they had to find 5 elderlies their matching teeth. While Luke had trouble doing the task, Margie sailed through the task and they completed the task fast. The rest of the teams chose to do the Broken Record where they had to sing Karaoke inside a taxi with 3 local girls. After finishing the road block, the teams headed to the pitstop.

Margie & Luke won this leg, Jamie & Cara second. Kisha & Jen, despite leaving their travel documents, decided to go to pitstop and raced with Tammy & Victor. Kisha & Jen arrived third, but Phil said that they had to fetch their documents before he could check them in, so Tammy & Victor became the 3rd team to check in. Mark & Michael, who also left their baggages at the dock, despite arguing, they decided to get their documents first before doing their detour. So the race for the 4th spot was between the siblings and the stuntmen. Both of them found their taxi drivers still waiting for them, so they got their belongings back.

Mark & Michael arrived at the pitstop before Jen & Kisha arrived, but due to some violation of race rules (they paid their cab with items), they got 4 hour penalty. So Jen & Kisha were safe, but so were Mark & Michael. This week wasn’t an elimination leg, but Phil gave them a major bad news, not only they would have a Speed Bump next week, but they would also be penalized on their starting time. So we’ll see if they can overcome those obstacles and stay in the competition next week. From the preview, looks like next week Luke and Jen are going to have a fight

Last night there were 2 new episodes of Howie Do It, and they were hillarious! One of the prank on the first episode was so funny even Howie “Larry” couldn’t suppress his laughing. He had to cover his face with a clipboard 😆 The prank was an audition for a role of something unpronouncable, and what’s more he asked the Marks to sing! I can’t really describe it, you have to see it yourself! On the second episode, some of the pranks were about relationships. One was a “reality show” where a guy was matched with Vic dressed as a chick. The other one was when a girl was “accidentally” got married to Vic 😆 If you miss these episodes, you should really watch them.  It should be available online at NBC.com.

There’s a glimpse of hope that Futurama will be back to FOX. The show that aired for about 5 years on FOX was cancelled on 2002 due to poor ratings (according to FOX) and it was because of inconsistent air time by FOX (according to me). I ranted about that on this post. Anyways, Futurama doesn’t lose its fans (like me) and continue to support the show by buying the DVDs. The good sales of DVD signals FOX that it’s a good time to ressurect this great comedic cartoon for its 6th season. See the video of the interview with actor Billy West, the voice of Fry, here.

Well, there was no new Amazing Race episode last night. Just in case you were wondering, there was Country Music Award instead. It was a good thing too though because I couldn’t be in front of TV last night. New episode should be back next week, same time, same channel. See you then 🙂

With only 3 episodes aired, NBC decided to axe The Chopping Block 😡 The reason, is as usual, low ratings. The remaining 5 episodes may or may not be aired. I doubt they would do that. I don’t get it at all, sure the rating wasn’t as high as expected, but the show was getting better, and I want to know who won!!! Sigh~just like My Own Worst Enemy, I hope the rest of the shows will be available on Hulu. Fat chance, but hey I can still dream. To read more, click here.

Update: Good news everyone! NBC will air the remaining episodes starting Friday July 3, 2009 at 8pm EST. If you miss it, go watch it online at nbc.com/chopping-block Cheers! 🙂
