-Seth Meyers was back on LIVE WITH KELLY again yesterday. Kelly wore a blue lace prom dress looking thing. Great color, terrible dress. Awkward moment when Kelly and Seth had to speak to PhilPhil, the winner of AMERICAN IDOL, on the phone instead of interviewing him live. Lots of uncomfortable silence and shockingly Kelly couldn't fill it easily. Not sure why they didn't just bag the interview altogether.

-There wasn't much on last night at all, so I caught up on HELLO KITTY & BILL, I mean GIULIANA & BILL. C'mon, you have to see the resemblance between Giuliana and HELLO KITTY! Is it me? I really didn't want to get suckered into this show, but now I'm in. I love it and get annoyed by it all at the same time. It's the perfect drinking game show. If we all drank on "Rancic", "Mama DePandi" or if we add a shot taking element for every different hairdo. Could be fun right? Wait a minute...I honestly don't remember Giuliana as Giuliana DePandi...did she ever go by that name? That'll drive me nuts now. Did we know her before she married Bill? It's early, I gotta do some research.

-I've had HART OF DIXIE in my TiVo for a while. It's one of those underrated, enjoyable, sorta sappy shows that flies under the radar, but when you have a chance to chill and watch it, you do smile. I smile most when Scott Porter aka Jason Street from FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is on screen. I also enjoy the Mayor LeVon Hays and Wade. But Rachel Bilson is really cute as Dr. Zoey Hart. She doesn't do much doctoring, which is probably why I like the show. I haven't seen the season finale yet, but I'm hoping that Lemon doesn't marry George. Lemon started out really annoying, and now...I like her, I just don't want her to marry George. Way more interesting to see her with the Mayor instead.

-A sign of the times for Daytime television...the DAYTIME EMMY's which had been on CBS for the past two years, will be airing, for the first time on cable, on HLN June 23rd. The show was having a bit of hard time finding a home. I guess with such erosion and lackluster performance of many daytime shows, not much interest? Kinda sad actually.

-Wednesday night marked the end of the 2011/2012 Primetime season. FOX has set a record, winning its 8th straight season among A18-49. FOX averaged a 3.2 rating and outperformed CBS by 7% and NBC by 28%. FOX also held relatively steady vs last year with 97% retention.

-That being said, NBC should be proud of themselves! They averaged a 2.5 rating for the September - May season which is a 9% gain vs. last year and the biggest increase among all 4 networks. This news puts them in 3rd place for the first time since the 2003/2004 season.

-I gave DUCK DYNASTY a try, it wasn't for me...we discussed this a while ago. It may not have been my thing, but it definitely is someone's thing since 2.6 million people tuned in to the season finale on A&E Wednesday night. Who are these people? I wonder if I need to give it a second chance?

-WIth my current DRAW SOMETHING obsession which took the place of my SCRABBLE obsession, which had taken over the PLANTS vs. ZOMBIES obsession, I think I might actually check out the TOP 100 VIDEO GAMES OF ALL TIME WEEK on G4. It's airing the week of June 11th through June 15th...I gotta set my TiVo

-Another TiVo reminder, GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS premiere's Monday night at 9pm. So excited!

-While I do enjoy a good list, especially this one, I've been trying to find this same list with cable programs included, so if anyone has seen this, please let me know as I would love to post it for everyone!
