It’s been the second time I’ve managed to catch The Showbiz Show, showing over here on FX (a decent channel, and I like the look of Dexter which premiere’s July 8) and I have to say it’s becoming a favourite rival to E!’s The Soup. As annoying as David Spade was on the last two (it was two, right?) season’s of 8 Simple Rules, he’s actual very entertaining hosting this. Of course, no-one can replace Joel McHale, who I can’t wait to see in America’s remake of The IT Crowd this year. And as if one episode isn’t enough, there are now TWO episodes of The Soup on every week… but it’s not listed on the EPG for some reason (technology sucks) so if you like The Soup, remember it’s on Wednesday at 10:30 PM. That’s Wednesday’s, 22:30. But, as much as The Showbiz Show entertains me, it’s unfortunately three weeks behind when it gets over here, and for a show such as this, anything that’s three weeks old and acts like it’s still “pop culture” is just borderline annoying.

Speaking of annoying, I’m not watching Big Brother anymore (but I still hit BBLB everyday at 7:30).

In personal news, I think I might be getting a cold. After all, it is the middle of Winter…. what, it’s Summer… are you kidding me?
