The Tyra Banks Show
It looks like Tyra "Kiss My Fat Ass" Banks decided to play same-sex therapist on her self-titled talker. The subject was gay men dealing with self hate. Now why these young men didn't visit their local midtown counselor as opposed to appearing on this hot ass mess, hosted by someone who is looking more and more like a character from Alien Nation by the minute, I will never know. In the tradition of Ricki Lake, Jerry Springer and Maury Povich (as opposed to her professed idol Oprah), Tyra made a mockery of the plight of these young men. I am so sick of Tyra, I almost want The CW to give Elisabeth Hasselbeck her own show in that time slot. With gay teen suicide on the rise in this country, the last thing anyone needs is an aging, self-absorbed, catwalker trying to play Frasier Crane. The Devil is SO busy!
There's nothing quite like going on a talk show and having to answer questions about a sibling's sex tape, but that's what Brandy does on Monday's episode of The Tyra Banks Show. Of course it doesn't make it any easier when Tyra asks if Brandy's watched it and then admits to Brandy she watched 20 seconds of it for "research purposes."
While The CW may be spinning it to appear that moving The Tyra Banks Show from syndication to airing exclusively on the struggling network that airs her popular reality contest America's Next Top Model is a good move, Reuters and The Hollywood Reporter are telling a slightly different a different story.
Apparently dissapointing ratings on such broadcast distributors as FOX and My Network TV led to Banks leaving the more lucrative syndie airwaves for a permanent home on the broadcast network. The move to The CW is reportedly contingent on cost cutting efforts being made to the show's budget. The production schedule for the four-year-old talker will reportedly be cut down to 26 weeks from 34, with re-runs from the first four seasons airing at 3 p.m., then followed by a new episode.
Looks like Ty-Ty still has a ways to go before reaching for The Mighty O's crown afterall.
