The Voice: Season 9, Knockouts, 10/26 and 10/27/15

October 28th, 2015 · Comments Off on The Voice: Season 9, Knockouts, 10/26 and 10/27/15

by Lyn Jensen Two nights,  nine knockout battles, three steals, and already Pharrell’s the only judge left with a steal. Here’s how The Voice moved its Season 9 field closer to twenty semi-finalists: Monday night 1.  Team Adam:  Blaine Mitchell vs. Andi & Alex. One of Adam’s rockers goes against an essentially country act, those folksy blonde twins. Mitchell’s song, “Hold […]

Survivor: Season 31, Episode 5, 10/21/15

October 22nd, 2015 · Comments Off on Survivor: Season 31, Episode 5, 10/21/15

by Lyn Jensen Night 11 of Suvivor Season 31 finds Jeff Varner voted out of the Angkor tribe, meaning Tasha and Andrew have done what few Survivor contestants have been able to do–move from the bottom to the top of their tribe. Later at Angkor (yellow buffs) Tasha tells the camera she’s tired of putting […]

The Voice: Season 9, Final Battles, 10/19 and 10/20/15

October 22nd, 2015 · Comments Off on The Voice: Season 9, Final Battles, 10/19 and 10/20/15

by Lyn Jensen Season 9 of The Voice sometimes resembled a religious broadcast because so many contestants performed religious songs. This season’s starting to look like a high school talent show, given that so many of the singers are so young. On Monday and Tuesday nights, the judges cut their teams and made their final steals before […]

October 18th, 2015 · Comments Off on The Amazing Race: Season 27, 4th Leg, Africa, 10/16/15

by Lyn Jensen Three legs of The Amazing Race, Season 27, were fairly simple, but the fourth leg turns complicated. An express pass and a double U-turn come into play, along with several other factors. As the leg begins, eight teams travel from Argentina to Africa and Victoria Falls–a destination that host Phil Keoghan calls one of […]

The Voice: Season 9, Battles Continue, 10/13/15

October 14th, 2015 · Comments Off on The Voice: Season 9, Battles Continue, 10/13/15

by Lyn Jensen Battle rounds on this season of The Voice continue to demonstrate the shortcomings of the format. Arguably a high level of talent makes the voting rounds, no matter who goes home. However, some of the more promising auditions invariably become early casualties in this round. We saw three more battles on Tuesday, plus […]

The Voice: Let the Battles Begin, 10/12/15

October 13th, 2015 · Comments Off on The Voice: Let the Battles Begin, 10/12/15

by Lyn Jensen Battle rounds come when The Voice pairs up contestants for duets, and the team judge (coach) keeps one singer and eliminates the other. The weaknesses of the format were painfully apparent last night, with choices of whom to cut turning especially brutal. Maybe it’s time for a format shake-up. 1.  Adam pairs geeky Jordan Smith […]

Pick-up trucks for each team are waiting at the town’s bus terminal. Each team gets a ride in […]

Survivor: Season 31, 3rd Episode, 10/7/15

October 8th, 2015 · Comments Off on Survivor: Season 31, 3rd Episode, 10/7/15

by Lyn Jensen During Season 31 of Survivor, the first two contestants to leave have gone out for complicated reasons. The first vote was between Vytas and Abi, and Vytas went out partly because some of the women in the Takao tribe didn’t like him. By the second tribal council, six people were suddenly on Abi’s […]
