Survivor Finale
I love Survivor. I've never missed an episode. Since day one. NEVER. I didn't love the White Collar, Blue Collar, No Collar season. The concept seemed pretty cool, but I wasn't rooting for anyone until last night. I had to root for Mike and in my opinion the right guy won. Before all of that though, we did have reward challenges and finally the family members showed up. I was wondering where they were. Why did they all show up so late in the game? I was surprised that Mike wasn't married. Maybe it's tough to date when all you do is drill oil? The final tribal was unreal. Mike stuck to his word and didn't write Carolyn's name down which got us to a tie and that meant fire building to decide the final 3. It had to be SO boring for the cast and crew to sit and watch Rodney and Carolyn attempt to build a fire for an hour. I was bored and it was only a few minutes of air time. I'm sure it pissed Jeff off that these two idiots couldn't build a fire after 39 days on the island. Jeff was at the top of his game last night during the reunion. He not only called out Dan for his sexist, ignorant remarks, he had the tape to back it all up and didn't let him off easy. Not sure how Shirin made her millions, but add that to the list of things we now know about her. I know this is going to sound ridiculous but what I was most obsessed with last night was Sierra's eyebrows. I don't know what goes on after a players torch is snuffed out, but did they fly in specialists to fix her eyebrows before the final tribal? Did you see those lashes? I really need a 15 minute webisode showing me what went on with her and her eyebrows. They looked SO bad when her Daddy showed up but then at tribal she was barely recognizable. Seriously, am I the only person obsessed with this? What can I say? It's these things that keep me up at night. Before Jeff said goodbye for the Summer, the 2nd chance cast was revealed and apparently whisked away right to Cambodia to start filming the Fall Season. Thankfully I remember a lot of the returning players. It should be pretty good.

Here’s the full list of the players getting a second chance in Season 31:

Kimmi Kappenberg
Jeff Varner

Late Show with David Letterman Finale
-Last night was David Letterman's last show. Of course I watched. I actually got a little emotional. Like I said before, I was never a Letterman person. I never really got him, but so many people did.I thought the final show was just right actually. I figured the Top 10 would be star-studded. I knew about the Foofighters but the surprise for me was seeing Dave's wife Regina, son Harry and Harry's friend, Tommy. Definitely didn't expect them at all. Especially Tommy.  I've enjoyed seeing all of the tributes. Here are Dave's competitors who are all huge fans as well. Kudos to Kimmel, his was the most memorable for me and the most sincere. I've always known that Kimmel worshiped Letterman. I didn't know that his appearance on Dave's show is what lead him to his own show. Kudos to Kimmel, class act to air a rerun last night and tell kids to watch Dave. Conan too…telling people to switch over from his show to Dave's show.

Conan O'Brien
James Corden

-James Corden thanked Dave and then, another awesome Car Karaoke. This time Justin Bieber was in the passenger seat. When I met James last week, he told me about filming with Justin and said they were together for over an hour and that Justin was a really nice guy. I love car karaoke, check it out:

-It's just crazy to think that there are people in the universe who've never seen Seinfeld. Sure the shows been gone from primetime since 1998, but it's been on TV every day since then. Some Millenials weren't even born when Seinfeld was on in primetime and was the biggest thing ever, so I guess maybe Hulu's hoping these 18-34 year olds will finally head over there to see if Seinfeld was all we old people say it was. On 6/24 every episode will be available for anyone who's interested to know the meaning behind "not that there's anything wrong with that," "master of his domain," "Yada, Yada, Yada" and "they're real and they're spectacular."  Go for it guys, trust me, I'm right on this one. Seinfeld was and is one of the best comedies ever. 

-Anyone actually excited about this Red Nose Day thing on NBC tonight? I wasn't planning on watching but there's nothing on before Lip Sync Battle, so maybe, I'll check it out or maybe I'll go for a bike ride or something.  I think it's the name…Red Nose that I have issues with. I automatically go to Rudolph, Christmas, and Santa.
