Ruining the Concept of a "Fixer Upper" for 7 Seasons

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | March 5, 2014 | Comments ()


Arrow on The CW at 8:00pm ET. I’ve finally started hearing good things about this show from people who aren’t actively lusting after the Stephen Amell, so I’m considering giving it a chance. I have a hard time with superhero series, though, as the longer they go on the more improbable I find the conceit. A two hour movie is nothing, but the contrivances necessary to keep a secret identity AND YET have allies and enemies over the course of several months of TV just irk me.

Psych on USA at 9:00pm ET.

The Americans on FX at 10:00pm ET.

Flipping Out on Bravo at 10:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere. I partially blame house-flippers for turning the housing market around so fast that my head’s still spinning. That’s cool, though, I’m a millennial with student loans so I won’t be buying a house until I’m 50 no matter what they cost!

The Fabulous Life Of… Kim + Kanye on VH1 at 10:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere. This is, apparently, all about how Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose to spend their money. Because between the tabloids, other celebrity-spotting shows, and the reality show starring one of them, we definitely need another one hour special all about how there’s a whole lot of really expensive things out there that are also hideously tacky.

Genevieve Burgess would like to believe she’d be better about spending her money, but there is surely a gold-plated laptop desk with a silk-velvet pillow out there with her name on it.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
