The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of August 3, 2015

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   UnREAL (Season Finale) Monday at 10:00pm on Lifetime Why: Because this show's become a cult hit! I was going to say an "under-the-radar cult hit" but that would be kind of redundant, right? Anyway, it was created by former Bachelor staffers and it's prompted a response from Bachelor / ette host Chris Harrison (he's not a fan), which should be enough to make it a guilty pleasure for both fans and haters of dating shows. Prepare to talk about: How every character on this show is nucking futs! How it's probably closer to real life than we want to admit; why it's taken Shiri Appleby so long to find a show since Roswell went off the air in 2002.   America's Next Top Model (Season Premiere) Wednesday at 9:00pm on The CW Why: Look, it's not what once was. Basically, after they did the short girl season, it never recovered from a being a dumb concept show cycle after cycle. THAT BEING SAID, it's still Top Model and it still has a place in the pop culture pantheon, especially during the dog days of summer. I'll admit I don't like the girls vs. guys concept, but whatever, I'll still watch. And so will Alex . [Tyra voice] And so. Will. You. Prepare to talk about: TYRA'S SHORT HAIR (finally walking the Mia-Farrow-in-Rosemary's-Baby walk... except not even, what a hypocrite); which of the contestants is the most forgettable; how happy you are Bryanboy is gone.   Project Runway (Season Premiere) Thursday at 9:00pm on Lifetime Why: The high class yang to Top Model 's yin, it's only fitting that Project Runway also premieres this week. Also (fairly severely) diminished from its heyday (sigh, will we ever have a year like 2006 again?), it's still our best/only way to get our bitchy fashion fix. Let's hope they've dropped the Red Robin challenge (lol) this year. That was just sad. Prepare to talk about: Wheee! How much further downmarket can they go?! How you'd love to have Tim Gunn giving you advice every day; whether the show will ever produce another designer on the same level as Christian Siriano; how Zac Posen is NO Michael Kors.   Leah E.

5 Reasons We Love Watching: America's Next Top Model

If you’re reading this, I likely don’t need to tell you that America’s Next Top Model is approaching its 22nd cycle. TWENTY-TWO. Few things make me feel simultaneously lazy as hell and SUPER productive more than the realization that I’ve plowed through twenty** whole seasons of a reality show that was birthed on UPN. (**No one actually counts the first season. ADRIANNE CURRY IS DEAD TO THE WHOLE FRANCHISE.) So let’s bring on the next one, shall we? If you’re not quite as eager to embrace cycle 22 as I am, allow me to attempt to convince you with these 5 reasons: 5. Tyra Banks (aka famed supermodel, aka New York Times best-selling author, aka Lightbulb Head, aka our hostess with the mostest) manages to boil down the art of modeling to a science. It’s almost like an idiot could do it: 4. She’s the ultimate administrator of tough love. (I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly never yelled at a girl like that before in my life.) 3. She’s got a real knack for theatrics. Man, you really got us good, Tyra! 2. Okay, enough about Tyra. Her friends are pretty cool too. (Sore subject on those last two... #NeverForget) 1. Makeovers! Everybody gets them, and everybody HATES THEM. Really, you’d think Tyra was forcing them to saw off one of their limbs. Well, almost everybody hates them... Are you stoked to witness another model hopeful super-smize his or her way to the TOP? Don’t miss America’s Next Top Model when cycle 22 premieres on August 5th on The CW . div.reason h3 { clear: both; padding-top: 30px; } div.reason img { float: left; width: 400px; } div.reason p { clear: both; }
