Let's all take a break from these crazy women!  

Below Deck Mediterreanan
The concepts the same, Chef Ben's the same, but we have a new boat, new crew, new captain and as the title suggests, a new SEA! I didn't think I was going to like it without Captain Lee and Kate and the gang, but...I'm in. Of course I'm in. The yachting thing just sucks me in. This boat is called the Ionian Princess and it's super gaudy and reminds me of Donald Trumps apartment. (Not that I've ever been in it, I've see pics though) Lots of gold! Captain Mark is the polar opposite of Captain Lee. This guys a bit off. He's got weird eyes, weird nostrils and can't seem to speak clearly. First group of guests were ridiculously fit but pretty cool. One problem, they HAD to see the Pittsburgh Steelers game. Not an easy task and as the credits rolled we didn't know if Hannah the Chief Stew could pull off this minor miracle.  

The Grinder
When anything starts out with Rob Lowe in a wife beater, it can only go downhill from there, but not The Grinder. This episode was pretty cute and Joel Zaydak was back, aka, Rob's real life son, John Owen Lowe. (Ya think anyone calls him JOLO?) There are so many funny little nuances in this show. Fred Savage...hilarious, the show within the show, the side story, the main story, Ethan's gambling problem, Claire secretly bingeing on The Grinder, and the cliffhanger. Such a soft spot for this one. I know know it's not the GREATEST show in the world, but it does deserve a 2nd Season. Netflix gave The Ranch a 2nd Season and this show is SO much better than The Ranch. 
Deadliest Catch
We had a gross zit popping last week but that was NOTHING compared to the enormous swollen testicle one of the deckhands on the Cornelia Marie had. They pixeled out and I still threw up a little bit in my mouth. Guys are crazy. As soon as the guy showed his mega ball to Josh and Casey, they had to show it to everyone. They all just laughed and turned the boat towards home. WHAT? Over on the Brenna A, our cute young skipper was having the best string of his life but his pal PEAR (yes that's his name) broke his ribs and they had to head back. On the Cape Caution, another dude had an infection in his finger and then another guy hurt his leg. Edgar couldn't find his pots and a huge storm was hitting everyone hard. Never gets old. 

-I think I need a new section devoted just to Kelly & Michael coverage. I'm still obsessed and watching the host chat every day looking way too close at everything to see if there is any tension. I check and make sure that Kelly and Michael hold are holding hands when they walk out. I make sure Michael pulls the chair out for Kelly, I analyze every word and every movement. I'm sure we are all over analyzing every move they make but it's all we got right now. We're sick of "Purple Rain" and we're back to Michael and Kelly.  Jimmy Kimmel's doin his boss a favor and filling in the chair first. Of course we know he's not even a real candidate but he'll be in for the Upfronts so makes complete sense.  

Some interesting ratings info since Michael's big announcement:
  • Live is the ONLY syndicated daytime chat fest to grow in ratings over the past 2 weeks. 
  • The show was up 3% when Kelly walked off (We don't have the 2nd weeks numbers yet)
  • Since Michael joined the show, Live became the #2 syndicated talk show
  • Since Michael joined the show, Live's ratings were up 8% vs. the last 4 Regis years
  • Since Michael joined the show, there are, on average, 268,000 MORE daily viewers then when Regis was sitting next to Kelly
-I really hope that James Corden has some good ideas up his sleeve for the Tony's this year. With Hamilton being nominated for 16 categories it could get old fast. We could actually get sick of Lin Manuel Miranda after the first 2 or 3 awards. Maybe they just give all the Hamilton awards out at once. Then give out the awards for plays and fill in with Michael & Kelly stories. See what I mean? I've got Michael & Kelly on the brain.

Wednesday's Trivia Question: I had so many Mom's and kids but now I think most of them are too hard for most of you guys so here's another easy one for you guys. Who's Mom is Hailey, Alex & Luke?
