Something strange is happening to me, PopWatchers. The summer TV season is already underway, and somehow, I can’t seem to make myself care. Maybe it’s May sweeps burnout. Just this weekend I finally caught up on my backlog of Desperate Housewives (Edie! OMG, nooo!) and The Office (Fire-walk! OMG, yesss!), and still have one Heroes and a bunch of Mediums to go. But whatever the reason, I haven’t watched a single episode of CBS’s Pirate Master, ABC’s The Next Best Thing, or Fox’s On the Lot. And I already know I have no interest in NBC’s America’s Got Talent.
Embarrassingly enough, one of the few new series I was excited about (aside from Bravo’s Hey, Paula) was NBC’s untitled celebreality series focusing on Posh Spice (who turned up on the red carpet at last night’s MTV Movie Awards, pictured at left, dressed like a brick of halvah) and her relocation to Los Angeles with her soccer-star husband David Beckham; now, however, People is reporting that his recall to the English national soccer team — is this a footballer’s equivalent of military service? — is putting the show in jeopardy. And that puts my emotional well-being in jeopardy. I had Being Bobby Brown-size hopes for Posh & Becks, and now, I’m going to have to re-cast my net. Maybe EW’s new Summer TV Preview will help. Oh, hey, only 14 more days till Age of Love? Okay, I’m totally over the Posh ordeal. How about you, PopWatchers? Are you devastated or delighted by the potential demise of Victoria Beckham’s show? Holla back!
