No, it wasn’t when Sarah told Sean she hoped to find a man who could help her through the trauma of not being allowed to zip-line in Vegas.

One thing that I already really love about Nashville is that so far, the engines for many of the storylines are the show’s women — Rayna’s attempts to get her career back on track and keep her lovelorn bandmate Deacon at bay and Juliet’s machinations in order to be taken more seriously as an artist cause ripple effects for the whole cast, and it’s great fun to watch. There are a couple of subplots that are already dragging, though, so let’s get them out of the way first.

Most people grow up, get a job, and work Monday through Friday (if they’re lucky). It’s not the greatest schedule in the world, but it’s comforting to know that just about everyone has to deal with it. The advent of reality television, however, has given rise to a whole new model for earning a living: the “spend six weeks embarrassing oneself on national television in the hopes of winning enough money to justify that decision for the next year or so” plan. And there is no greater offender on reality television than ABC’s glorious summer trainwreck “Bachelor Pad.”

I’m something of a “Bachelor” franchise historian – I watch “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette” and the summer abomination that is “Bachelor Pad.” While all three shows are demonstrably bad for feminism, I find the latter to be the most interesting. There’s a particular phenomenon on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” that we’ll call “Over/Under-commitment Syndrome.”

S.E. Cupp appeared on The View this morning to talk about her reaction to an explicit, faked photo of her published in Hustler magazine.

Well, this is embarrassing. I am a longtime viewer of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and even the summer abomination that is Bachelor Pad. While I believe that the franchise in general is a joke/bad for feminism, in my sad tenure of watching the show I have accumulated some not altogether useless knowledge. One of the patterns that I’ve noticed, in particular, is that being a Bachelorette can be very good for a lady’s career (within a rather narrow field, but it’s a boost nonetheless). I can prove it — here’s a look at the most recent Bachelors and Bachelorettes, and how they fared career-wise after the show.

We’re not crazy about the title of “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” not just because the “b” word makes our stomach turn, but because the show should own the term if they’re going to use it. We try not to be too unforgiving about innocuous comedies though, and there’s a lot more to the story than its silly name.

Lori Greiner is one of the “sharks” on ABC’s Shark Tank, a well-established guilty pleasure for The Jane Dough. This morning she appeared on The View to talk about her role on the show and basically explain why she has so much money to burn.
