It’s amazing, isn’t it, that a show in its 8th season can draw its largest audience yet while our local version fails and gets canceled for a second time.

The opening show of the eighth season of Simon Cowell’s “Britain’s Got Talent” attracted a record launch audience of more than 11 million viewers on Saturday.

The talent show began with 11.1 million viewers, a 47.3% share of the audience, between 8 p.m. and 9.15 p.m., with a five-minute peak audience of 12.3 million. Continue reading »

My super scientific Masterchef rankings:

1st – Kasey and Karena: These two have come back strong in the past few challenges, and head into tonight’s challenge as one of the two top teams.  Plus, they are hilarious, so that gets them the top spot.

2nd – Jaimie and Bec: These two ladies clearly want to win and they have excellent teamwork.  This has helped them create some great dishes in the recent weeks and the judges seem impressed.

3rd – Tanisha and Verena: I still think Tanisha and Verena could take out the competition but they head into tonight’s challenge after underwhelming in the kitchen last night.

4th – Nikki and Jordan: Nikki and Jordan did not impress with their Indonesian cuisine last night, and Nikki is becoming a bit of a weak link.  I really hope they can pick it up tonight and stay in the competition.
