Headbangers Ball - TV Shows
Headbangers Ball has always been a great source to watch heavy metal music videos for whatever generation was watching. But since Jamey Jasta left, MTV2 has decimated Headbangers Ball by shortening it from 3 hours to 1 hour and moving it later and later into the night. Now it's on at Tuesday at like, 1 in the morning, and that's inexcusable. I know MTV hates anything that associates themselves with "music", but can't they let us metalheads have our metal at a decent hour on a decent day? Now when I want to catch metal, I watch VH1 Classic. At least THEY still care about good music. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 23, 2010, 9:18 pm

Dora the Explorer - TV Shows
Dora The Explorer doesn't work at all. It says it teaches Spanish but it mostly hammers the same annoying songs into your head repeatedly and tried to hard to be interactive by making every simple task worth asking the audience to say where something is, while Dora waits for way too long. I could learn more in Spanish from a day of Grade 1 Spanish class than I could from a full season of this show. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 2:08 am

MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) - TV Shows
It's mindless entertainment, and I expected nothing more! It's amazing to think that half of the voice actors (Christopher Darga and John Cervenka) were party responsible for the abysmal garbage that was Burt Luddin's Love Buffet on GSN, cause they totally redeemed themselves on MXC! Sure, fans of Takeshi's Castle will probably be dumbfounded by what was done to the original show, but it's for a different audience, and luckily, it was well recieved enough for a four year run. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:53 am

Family Feud - TV Shows
If you'd asked me when Family Fued boned in the early 2000s, I'd have said when Louie Anderson became the host, no questions asked. His voice was grating, he never really seemed like he wanted to be there, and he was never particularly funny or witty, despite his funny stand-up material. But when Family Fued dropped Louie for Richard Karn, things improved and improved fast. Richard Karn definitely had no game show experience, but he was warm, friendly, and visibly enjoyed hosting the show. Plus, the set got better and the double point round returned, both I welcomed! So it's definitely jumped back, John O'Hurley also proved to be a great host, though the jury's out on Steve Harvey until we see him in action. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:48 am

Match Game - TV Shows
Match Game was always an entertaining show in it's classic daytime/syndicated runs of the 70s and early 80s. However, when they had the bright idea to morph Match Game and Hollywood Squares into The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour, it would never recover. It wasn't even Match Game's fault, the Jon Bauman-hosted joke answer-less Hollywood Squares sunk it, but even if it was as good as the Peter Marshall era, the show would still have left me scratching my head over why they were merged together. Nothing's saved it since either, Match Game 90 was too bland and had a horrible timeslot, and Match Game 98...the less I say, the better. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:42 am

American Idol - TV Shows
The auditions are the best part because we get the trainwreck horrible singers and we get the good singers before they get a television/record label polish. The best judges of talent to me are how they sing as themselves in the audition stage, when it's just them alone singing what they know and want. I'd love to see a singing talent show where the contestants can pick their own songs for the WHOLE run of the show, or sing their own original material if they choose, without outside influence. I'd also love to see more heavy metal singers actually advance, cause I bet some very talented ones have auditioned before, but knowing the commercial appeal of this show, I can't see it ever happening. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:36 am

Hell's Kitchen (U.S.) - TV Shows
The anti-climactic cliffhangers don't bother me, they're just a way to try and get fans to tune in next week, and even if we know it likely won't lead somewhere, it must work on some people. That being said, I like Hell's Kitchen, I like how Gordon Ramsay has total control to run the kitchen and to judge and eliminate contestants. The show presents everything well, and we really get to know the contestants. And of course, seeing Gordon yell and get angry is always fun. It may not be the best method of finding a great new chef, but I'd take this over Top Chef any day, it's just an entertaining summer show! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:29 am

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - TV Shows
WWTBAM was perfectly fine the way it was until producers started tinkering with the syndicated format. Stuff like dumping the classic lifelines, adding a time limit to a show that didn't need to be sped up, overcomplicating the show with unneeded graphics and additions, and of course, the completely dispensable "Tournament of Ten", which to me sounded like a desperation move to force a millionaire cause they hadn't had one in 6 years. WWTBAM was at it's best when Regis hosted the ABC version, and if it wasn't for airing it too much and all the celebrity episodes, it would have lasted a LOT longer. It was simple, fun, suspenseful, and engaging. A lot of that appeal has dried up in the last few years thanks to the changes that have been made. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:23 am

Real TV - TV Shows
Real TV boned when Ahmad Rashad replaced John Daly. Ahmad's a nice enough guy, I found him underrated as the host of Caesar's Challenge, and he's great as a sports host, but he definitely didn't fit on Real TV. He seemed somewhat wooden, where John Daly was a well-versed perfect host for the material. I didn't mind Kristin Eykel either as a co-host, though she was dispensible. Real TV went from generally amazing and interesting home video to mostly extreme sport mishaps after Ahmad took over too, it's like they wanted to appeal to a younger audience and not try as hard at the same time. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:16 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy gives me mixed feelings. I find the show hilarious, but the structure and characters make me dislike it at the same time. Since the third season, things seem to have gotten worse. The stories went from actually trying (with some cutaway gags) to an over reliance on cutaway gags and unneeded character development that made most of the main characters less likeable, ESPECIALLY Stewie, whose world-domination matricidal bent is sorely missed. The stories are worse too. I still find the show very funny, but only if you strip the cutaway gags from the story itself. Without them, it feels empty and not as fun as it was in the first two seasons. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:07 am

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
Jeopardy has never jumped or boned, it's as entertaining as it's ever been. I have nitpicks, like the unnecessary Clue Crew, the set not turning red in Double Jeopardy like in the 1990s, and the old "board-turns-on" music being replaced, but those are all minor. Jeopardy is classic, they know not to screw with what works, and it's worked for 26 years and counting! If it ain't broke, don't fix it! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:42 am

Hills, The - TV Shows
Scripted or not, I have no interest in these preppy high class 20-somethings with no noticeable talent, unless being a "reality TV star" is talent in the new millennium. Reality shows are best when the people/family being followed have an interesting back story, profession, or situation to be wrapped in, and there's not enough of those. I'd bring up the fact that this airs on "Music Television" and isn't a music program, but MTV buried that long ago. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:33 am

At the Movies - TV Shows
Siskel and Ebert were a great team, they played off each other well, they genuinely loved films to the point that they'd fight over them to defend their ratings. They made "thumbs up/down" a household term. After Gene died, it was never the same. Richard Roeper grew on me, but he's no Gene Siskel. The set got worse too. It was never quite as good during the "Ebert & Roeper" years, though I still watched.Ebert losing his voice, the celebrity guest hosts, and the two Bens sunk it further. It's jumping back with Scott & Phillips, but not enough to save the show. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 19, 2010, 5:50 pm
