Long wait almost ends, on July 8, ABC will air the premier of 2nd season of I Survived A Japanese Game Show at 9 pm EST. I’m so excited, I put a reminder on my cell phone 😀 Anyways, TVView.TV has a list of players for the 2nd season, check it out here.

To see the recap of last season, see my Japanese Game Show page, here. Or, if you want to watch the episodes of the first season, there’s someone who uploaded the videos on YouTube. Enjoy 🙂

Fox has announced that other that new season of So You Think You Can Dance that will start tomorrow, they’ll have another new season on Fall! For Dance show lovers, this year is your good year. In the beginning of the year, there was Superstars of Dance, then new season of Dancing with the Stars (which crowned Shawn Johnson on the finale last night), Summer’s SYTYCD starting tomorrow on Fox, then both Dancing with the Stars and SYTYCD on Fall! It can’t get any better 🙂 By the way, if you are interested in auditioning for Fall’s SYTYCD, check out the open call schedule at fox.com/dance

Winners

Posted on: May 17, 2009

Since we’ve been having finales for some of our favorite reality shows, I’m going to list this season’s winners of several favorite shows:

  • Amazing Race: Tammy & Victor
  • Biggest Loser: Helen
  • Survivor Tocantins: JT
  • Dancing with the Stars: Shawn Johnson
  • American Idol: Kris Allen

Stay tuned as I’ll update this post when more winners are announced.

Summer is drawing near, and that means Summer TV Shows are coming too! I always like summer tv shows because  they’re not heavy on drama, most of them even reality shows (I know i’m a reality-junkie). Anyways, from the information that I can gather so far, here’s the list of Summer TV Shows:

NBC:

  • Kings, new episode returns in June date TBA
  • Merlin, series Premiere Sunday, June 21st 8/7c
  • I’m Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, series Premiere, Monday, June 1st 8/7c
  • America’s Got Talent, series Premier, Tuesday, June 23 8/7c
  • The Philanthropist, series Premiere Wednesday, June 24th 10/9c
  • The Great American Road Trip, series Premiere Tuesday, July 7th 8/7c

ABC:

  • Wipeout, Premieres Wednesday, May 27 8/7c
  • I Survived Japanese Game Show, Premieres Wednesday, July 8 9/8c
  • The Superstar, Premieres Tuesday, June 23 8/7c
  • Dating in the Dark, Premieres Monday, July 20 10/9c
  • The Superstars Premieres Tuesday, June 23 8/7c

FOX:

  • So You Think You Can Dance premiers Thursday, May 21 8/7c

CBS:

  • Big Brother premiers Thursday, July 9 8/7c

So far great line up, for NBC and ABC. Can’t wait for summer. I can’t find any info about new summer shows on CW, I guess they’ll just do reruns.

Well, the open calls for new season of I survived Japanes Game Show has been wrapped up in LA, the last stop for the audition. I didn’t go though, I decided I’m not a reality show type of material because I’m so boring 😆 I do want to participate on the games, just no cameras when I’m making fool of myself please 😛 So yeah, no more auditions available for the show, but I’m not sure if they still accept application through email. But if you just found out about this and wanted to apply, you can always send the application email. Click here for the email address and other information. Also, there is a link to apply for wipeout.

Other than that, Burn Notice is back! Just watched it yesterday on USAnetwork.com/burnnotice. Continuing the last episode, Carla said that it wasn’t her (or her men) who tried to blow Michael up, so Michael was assigned to find out who wanted him dead. All new Burn Notice episode on Thursday, Jan 29 on 10 pm EST.
