TV Tapas: Meme Goes Terribly Wrong, Olsen Twins Hit Instagram and ‘Chicago Melon’


Why Did This Silly Viral Photo Lead to Threats of Violence? ('The Internet Ruined My Life')

Random Thoughts…

“Survivor” Host Jeff Probst has been guilty of over-hyping bad seasons in the past, so I was nervous with the lack of hype for “Survivor: Kaoh Rong.” But, it’s quickly becoming one of the best original-cast seasons I’ve ever seen. Last night’s idol-filled Tribal Council was a doozy. … Big cuts on “The Voice” last night. Some serious talent was sent packing. … Oof, the medicine-ball sit-up challenge on “Strong” would’ve had me reaching for a bucket. … I think I like fake-conservative-pundit Stephen Colbert more than I like “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. … So, if you know someone who watches “Empire,” give them a hug today. They went through a lot last night.


Breaking News…

Last Night’s Trending Videos…

1. ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’An exclusive look at NBC’s newest hit show “Chicago Melon.” Seriously, it looks awesome.
2. ‘Kocktails with Khloe’Are the Kardashian Kids watching “The People v. O.J. Simpson”? C’mon…I think we all know the answer to that.
3. ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live‘ – Can people name more Avengers or more U.S. Presidents? Things like this make me sad for society. Still funny though.

What to Watch Tonight…

1. ‘Orphan Black‘ (BBC America: 10pm ET) – Alright, Clone Club…Season 4 has finally arrived. And if you don’t count yourself among the Club’s members, you should really consider giving this show a shot. Tatiana Maslany deserves all the acting awards ever.
2. ‘American Grit’ (FOX: 9pm ET) – “The Champ Is…on FOX?” Huh… Anywho, WWE Superstar John Cena tries his hand at hosting with this new military themed reality show. Sixteen men and women will push themselves to their physical limits while under the guidance of some of the Armed Forces’ top names.
3. ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ (ABC: 8pm ET) – We’re getting a double dose of the gang from Seattle Grace tonight and it seems like the theme is, “What is Ben thinking?!”

Who to Follow on Twitter: “Modern Family” Star Eric Stonestreet
