Herc’s Thursday TV Talkback!! The Return Of LOUIE!! Demme On TAVIS!! 2012’s Final THURSDAY BIG BROTHER!! Howard Stern’s Live AGT Finale!! SNOOKI, SULLIVAN & EXTREME CHEF Finales!! GLEE Premiere!! Also New BIBLE, WIPEOUT And More!!

No “Louie” last week -- but the one before starred Garry Marshall as CBS exec Lars Tartigan (Les Mooves crossed with Brandon Tartikoff?), who wanted CK to take over the retiring David Letterman’s 11:35 p.m. slot – if they decide Jerry Seinfeld isn’t too expensive. Leno’s in tonight’s episode. Is Letterman? Is Seinfeld? Is a bitter Craig Ferguson?

“Louie” is not the most predictable show, but I predict Louie will be put through hell, then Letterman will decide he doesn’t want to retire after all.

On Wednesday’s “Big Brother” rocker Jenn got the boot and Last Girl Standing Danielle became the season’s almost-last HoH. Which is still bad news for Danielle since no woman has even won the game sitting next to a fellow. Also the HoH is kind of the least powerful player this week.

If one of the remaining three males wins the veto, that contestant decides alone who will join Danielle in the Final Three.

Tonight’s episode should (following a glimpse inside the jury house) conclude with an endurance competition that will stretch well into the night. If Ian can win tonight’s veto competition (the only way I think he can hope to stay in the house tonight), I predict he will also win tonight’s HoH competition.

Sunday’s show is almost certainly a recap special. Wednesday’s show is the 90-minute season finale.

 

Premiering Tonight:


Glee (9pm Fox)


Real Housewives Of Miami (9pm Bravo)


Symon’s Suppers (9:30pm Cooking)

 

MTV’s Music Video Awards was last Thursday’s top-rated show but garnered less than half the audience it did last year. Was Kevin Hart not a big enough name? Was the move from Sunday to Thursday a misstep? Have people stopping watching music videos?

"Big Brother's" ratings conttinue to climb as we head toward next Wednesday's season finale:

    Louie

    by Matthew

    really enjoying this season so many highlights, how about that masterbating woman and Louie running away from his dad onto an awesome 3 tire motorcycle and then onto a boat, that was so funny, Jim Norton's faping habits, and this recent part of 2 has been cool

    Letterman will be a kennedy center honoree btw.

    by mistergreen

    Can't wait to see the people who will honor him. My guess would be seinfeld, Regis, brokaw.

    ....so hard to watch.

    by Loosejerk

    Has there been a better season of reality TV than Big Brother 14? How can this show take the person I'm rooting for to win (Dan) and give me the most uncomfortable ending that I almost couldn't watch? 2 things. I truly believe Dan would have even thrown Danielle under the bus (and didn't he even suggest as much at one point) to stay in this game. But, I also believe him when he that some of his game play was done to take Danielle to the end. I feel he still has a coach mentality with her. At the very least, it is a good cover story to give to Danielle.

    Not hard to understand.. Dan = Evil Dick.

    by tailhook

    With Danielle being well.. Danielle. Basically providing a choice between a dude who got blood on his hands to get his core 2 person alliance to the final, and the ditz that got away clean with little strategy and weak gameplay, but made it to the end. We know how that usually turns out. I.e. Dan Wins. The only wildcards is this Danielle is a bit more likeable than that Danielle and Ian *MUST* lose the HoH competition. If either Danielle or Dan win HoH, Dan wins the whole thing as no way Danielle takes Ian. I can even see Dan pulling an Evil Dick and doing a lobbying session for Danielle to win at the final 2 knowing she doesn't really have a shot. The votes in a Dan/Danielle? Britney = Dan Ian = Dan Joe = Dan Jenn = Dan Ashley = Dan Frank = Danielle Shane = Danielle
