What I’ve been watching this week – December 31
Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2018 – This is really what I wait for each year – comedians answering questions about what went on each year and occasionally take breaks to drink wine. This year’s panel featured David Mitchell, Michelle Wolf, Claudia Winkleman, Mo Gilligan, Noel Fielding and Richard Ayoade. No surprise, this episode was amazing. I will probably watch it at least 6 times before 2019 is over.
Food Network Marathons – It’s the most wonderful time of the year – when networks feel like no one is really watching their programming, so they just put marathons on. That works for me!! I love sitting on the couch or setting the dvr for endless episodes of my favourite shows that I’ve definitely already seen. Just this week alone I’ve enjoyed marathons of Guy’s Grocery Games, Cutthroat Kitchen, Holiday Baking Championship, and Diners, Drive ins, and Dives! There’s truly no better way to spend the holiday season.
Ex on the Beach Season 2 – The very tame, American cousin of British reality television monolith, Ex on the Beach is back. What I do like about the US version of the show is that they fill the cast with people from other reality tv shows, and because I consume so much of this garbage, I know who everyone is. In season 2, there are some real heavy hitters including Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham and The Bachelorette’s Chad Johnson. This show is obviously pure trash, but it’s MY pure trash.
