Vampire Diaries
All you really need to know is that Elena took the vampirism cure and got all her memories back. All the other stuff was filler

Lip Sync Battle
Chrissy Teigen had the boobs completely covered and yet still so much skin exposed. SUPER short leather shorts, the belly and the arms. The show doesn't need her in any way, but for some reason, I enjoy her. This week, Michael Strahan and Hoda Kotb…battle of the morning show hosts. Not sure if Hoda had some chardonnay prior to her performance but for courage alone, I'm assuming she did. 

Hoda performed "Baby Got Back." She did a surprisingly awesome job, but I so wanted to beat the director over the head. STOP PULLING THE CAMERA BACK! Let the viewers see the performance. OMFG how in the world does nobody else not see this. Are Jimmy, Stephen and John watching? SO ANNOYING. Michael Strahan performed "London Bridge" by Fergie. No idea at all if Michael did a good job getting the words right. He did get people to wave their arms and he did dance well, but his huge mega paws and the microphone blocked his lips. So…Hoda wins. 

Hoda performed "Uptown Funk" pretty damn good. Microphone placement was good. Lip Sync was good but too much turning away from the camera. Strahan was next. For me, Bell Biv Devoe wasn't much of a surprise it was in the preview clip all over the place all week. I guess Michael thought that having the hat, the jacket, the moves and the actual group with him would sway the audience, but if you don't know the words, you won't win and he didn't.  Side note: Loved LL's COOLJ bling


-I couldn't get to the A&E Upfront last night but I read that they will be remaking ROOTS. I can't imagine anyone but Levar Burton as Kunta Kinte aka Toby but then I realized that the original ROOTS aired in 1977…nearly 40 years ago…OMFG that fact made me REALLY FEEL OLD.

-NBC's getting in on the Netflix action, sort of. They're going to release ALL 13 eps of their new show Aquarius after the broadcast premiere on 5/28. The eps will be available on and the NBC Watch App for a month and will have a limited commercial load. With another program, Playing House, all eps will be release before the shows premiere. It's the perfect time to test the model after all the Season Finales and BEFORE Big Brother and all the Summer Shows get rolling. I despise David Duchovny, but I've always been intrigued by Charles Manson so not sure if I'm on board or not with Aquarius. Who's in? 

-Nielsen's going to begin measuring Roku viewing. Anyone know how many Roku boxes are out there? Having trouble finding this number. I only know 3 people with Roku. I should probably do a survey on this at some point shouldn't I? Note to staff: Figure out how to do this. Oh…wait, I don't have a staff. 

Friday's Trivia Question: Roseanne and the Big Bang Theory who connects the two?
