Whoever's idea it was...if the numbers stay consistent, Strahan, Harvey and Baldwin will need to clear their calendars.

Ray Donovan
Of course things can't be turning around for Ray and his dysfunctional family. Sure, Liev, who directed Sunday's episode,  tried to trick us. For a few minutes I thought that maybe, just maybe Ray had turned a corner. He joined Bunchy in a support group, got Bridget to come to dinner, eliminated cocktails from breakfast and I believe he actually cracked a smile, but then as soon as we saw Mickey in the desert scamming rich guys at a casino in a crazy costume and Abby going into an MRI tube we knew it was the Ray Donovan we have come to expect. The guy that takes a cop, gets him wasted, slams his car into a wall and sends him to rehab just to protect a friend/client. Of course because it's Ray, he found out after the fact that the guy's sleeping with Lisa Bonet, his SISTER, not his girlfriend. Just because we've sort of accepted Jamie Lannister and Cersei sleeping together doesn't mean we can accept it everywhere now. I'm not up for a new incest trend people. Don't think Ray liked learning that news at all. Love how he got home with a bloody forehead and nobody in the family even noticed or cared. Mickey ended up doing Peyote in the desert with an Indian and a crazy art chick with huge sleestack (name the show for 10 points) glasses sent Ray a $60K painting which means she's now his newest client. Can this dude have just one regular day sitting by the pool flipping burgers with the family? If he did, we wouldn't watch, so I guess...no, he can't. 

Hoping some of you guys took the UnReal homework assignment seriously and either caught up or got on the bandwagon. This week, Daddy issues seemed to be a trend. First Ray and then Quinn. I actually prefer Daddy issues to incest though. Quinn found out her dad died but didn't seem to care at all. She just got nastier. Do we blame her? Chet showed up with his kid which only elevated her ire (I think I used that word right, let me know.) Of course, I knew the second I saw Chet with a stroller that he had kidnapped his son and the cops were coming, the question was when. Rachel and Coleman were working together against Quinn. None of them really cared about Darius. At least I don't think they do. Quinn had the girls in some pretty skimpy football uniforms. This is another show that provides scantily clad women on a regular basis. Maddie got one of the girls liquored up enough to knock Darius on his ass and puke on his shoes. There really isn't one redeeming person on the set of UnReal is there? It's funny though, you do feel bad for everyone at some point in each episode and then they do something super horrible that makes you feel worse. I hate Quinn but I also pity her. I love Rachel, but she's a mess. Yes, she's brilliant, but she's a super hot mess and we pity her as well.  Darius sent 5 chicks home so we are now down to the final 5. The question is...will he survive til the end?    

Odd Mom Out
Please tell me that you guys watched Odd Mom Out's Yom Kippur fasting episode either last night or on the Bravo Now app over the weekend. PLEASE. If you're a Jew than you had to be peeing in your pants. I do fast for Yom Kippur and I'm the only one in my family who does, but there have been times when some fasted with me in solidarity and thought it was "nooooo problem" there have been times people have lied to me about fasting, there have been times that right as I'm about to make it...the goal line is right in front of me and I say F*CK this and go for the bagel, the cream cheese, the lox and even through on sh*t I don't even eat because I'm so hungry. Jill Kargman is hilarious and in my opinion, this episode is a classic. Loving Blythe Danner as Jill's Mom. She should be in every episode. I already watched the 3rd episode too, but I'll talk about that one next week when it airs.

-Baby Daddy has been renewed for a 6th Season. Maybe Freeform should change the name to Toddler Daddy or Pre-School Daddy? 

-Congrats to Chris Albrecht for renewing his contract as CEO of Starz. Just keep giving me my Outlander, Chris that's really all you have to do to make me happy. Sure your bosses want more from you but I'm a lot easier to please than them. Of course they through on some extra responsibilities and made him Prez too, I'm sure with the extra dough he'll deal with it.  

Tuesday's Trivia Question: Toni Colette and John Corbett starred in this show as Tara and Max Gregson. I've never seen it, but I'm going for a theme here people!
