You could watch Survivor or The X Factor, but those shows bore me. You really don’t want to waste your time with a show that I’m not sure how it got made into a pilot, I Hate My Teenage Daughter. All the shows that I want to watch are in the 10pm hour starting with Top Chef: Texas. The chefs move from San Antonio to Dallas where they have to make fancy pants food at a high-society dinner party.

CBS has an odd line-up tonight with the very family friendly Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at 8pm, followed two hours later by Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. I know the latter comes on after the kids are in bed, but the shows on CBS that night just do not make sense following one another.

Two season finales take place this week. One is The Sing-off live finale on NBC, which no one seems to be paying attention to anymore anyway. The other season finale is HBO’s Bored to Death. George attends his daughter’s wedding to Sledgehammer and when Jonathan is kidnapped, a bunch of Super Ray fan help out.

This is the last week for a lot of shows until they go into reruns through a good part of December and January. Tonight on AMC, The Walking Dead will air its last episode until next February. Rick has recently learned secrets about his wife, but will he learn about the secret in the barn while he tries to convince Hershel to let his group stay? Also, will they ever find Sophia?

Beverly cried during the first “real” episode last week when she saw the girl dancing with her father. Then she cried again this week when she was missing her husband while at the rodeo. We can start a drinking game of drinking whenever Beverly starts crying during this show.

While I enjoyed most of the episode, I was a bit frightened by the tangerine Speedos that were shown near the end of the leg. It also made me think of the random song by Caviar, Mr. Tangerine Speedo. Since there is no official video, I decided the fan-made one featuring the guys from 300 worked best.

The chefs started out making a dish with rattlesnake before they created Mexican food for a Quinceanera. We also learned the kind of tortilla used really determines if a dish is an enchilada or burrito. Top Chef is all about learning!

This was an entertaining leg where teams actually used the U-Turn correctly, got to dress in funny outfits while dancing, and race bunnies. What’s not to love?

What seems to happen frequently on cooking competition shows is someone cuts themselves with a knife. Edward did it this week. He wasn’t a wuss like Jamie was on Top Chef All-Stars and go to the hospital. He just put on a glove and started cooking, but he was gushing too much blood and he was worried it would get all over the place, like the food. A medic tried to bandage him, but Edward refused to stop cooking. He just used one hand while the medic stood there and made him stop bleeding. Go Edward!

The show tried to be exciting with a double u-turn but all the contestants wasted it. There was a fairly exciting race to the finish line though, but what I found to be the best part of the entire episode was the guy’s hair at the pit stop. Look at it! Awesome.
