Last night, Macaulay Culkin and RuPaul were the chatty celebrities (RuPaul talked about a friend whose foreskin can hold 19 marbles, and whose talent was taped for a WOW straight-to-video omnibus), with participation from audience members, some in drag, and a guest appearance by a New Yorker claiming to be Jesus. The Jesus.
But, jesus, I don’t have the same enthusiasm for the fifth season of Big Brother as I do for Big Mary. In previous years, Brother had been my favorite reality show, the one I stayed home to watch religiously. This year, inexplicably, it’s unwatchable. (Let me be James for a moment: It’s UNWATCHABLE!!!!!) Awful, ignorant, self-involved, uninvolving congestants, er, I mean contestants who are mostly bridge-and-tunnel without the charm. Even with two gimmicky ‘twists” in the first week of their incarceration, the show has no personality. I’m guessing the show has a new casting team.
