It’s official. The Fall TV season is upon us, and our second reality roundup has hit the presses. Ok, well at least has been published for your enjoyment. As promised, we’ll be taking a look at what reality TV has to offer this week, including a number of premieres and exciting moments. As always, if there is a show that we don’t end up covering in our reality round-up that you’d like to see in the future, leave a shout out below or in our forums! Without further adieu, grab the nearest microphone, fix that dessert you’ve been making, cancel the plane tickets to a South Pacific island, and join us as we samba through this week’s reality TV offerings.
The Sing-Off, Premieres Monday at 8pm EST on NBC
This Fall, we get a taste of raw music and I’m talking music without the support of the band. Why? Well, the talented artists fill the production with their voices and their voices alone. A capella takes center stage each week at renowned groups from around the country try to impress judges Sara Bareilles, Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman (of Boyz II Men). Hosted by Nick Lachey, this staple around the holidays has moved to the big stage this year and rightfully so. So sit back, enjoy the voices and this is one reality “stunt” you can try at home…you just might not be as good. Catch a sneak peek at a collaborative performance from the upcoming season and join our forums as we discuss the season! Each week, we’ll be chatting with the eliminated group, so you’ll want to be sure to watch with us, ask questions and get some answers!
Dancing With The Stars, Premieres Monday at 8pm EST on ABC
With an all-new cast revealed, ABC hopes to wow America with another installment of DWTS. Polarizing personalities are sure to arise as the pressure builds on the ballroom floor. With the judges remaining the same (one of the few reality shows who have stuck to the original, I might add), the show has to rely on their contestants to bring out the drama and the fun all at once. Check out the dancing pairs here and let us know who you’ll be rooting for the most. We discuss each and every show in our forums, so if you want somewhere to root for, bash, cheer on and just enjoy the season, we’ve got you covered! Who will be eliminated first? The Results show will air on Tuesday at 9pm EST.
The Biggest Loser, Premieres Tuesday at 8pm EST on NBC
A whole new crop of everyday Americans look for a life transformation on this inspiring show from NBC. Meet the cast of the Biggest Loser right HERE and you’ll notice that the crew come from every walk of life and struggle with weight in their own special way. As the trainers of old and Anna Kournikova work hard to help each American reach their goal of weight loss, America will cheer on with each and every one. The highs and lows won’t be any different from seasons past, so except some to reach their breaking point while some look to special moments in their life for motivation. Each week, we’ll be chatting with the eliminated contestant, so you’ll want to be sure to watch with us, ask questions and get some answers!
Survivor: South Pacific, Wednesday at 8pm EST on CBS
On this week’s Survivor, one of the castaways reels from his near elimination experience and tries to build himself back up at camp. Will he be successful or will he let his “redemption” get the best of him? And did we really think Russel Hantz’s nephew would keep his secret that long? Well, if you did, joke’s on you. He just might be sharing his deep secret with someone this week. Who? Well, you’ll have to watch to find that out. This week, we won’t be seeing our first Redemption Island challenge, but I’m sure we’ll get a look to see how life is spent in even more seclusion. Don’t miss it and don’t forget to chat with us during the show!
The X-Factor, Wednesday & Thursday 2-night premiere at 8pm EST on Fox
For anyone who thought Simon Cowell wouldn’t leave American Idol for something bigger and better, well…you were wrong. Not only does this show boast to be a bigger platform to launch a singing competition, the prize to place in the winner’s back pocket is much larger than American reality TV has seen. Did you forget about the $5,000,000 grand prize recording contract? Well, I’ll remind you. Simon is joined by producer L.A. Reid, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger (who left post at The Sing-Off) and miss Paula Abdul. Whether you’re 12 or 62, you just might have the X Factor and America will be waiting to see.
