TV Tonight: Crowned

On the guilt-to-pleasure scale for reality TV, where will Crowned fall? The mother-daughter beauty competition show premieres tonight on the CW, with 11 teams moving into a posh pageant house and competing against each other for the ultimate crown.

On the one hand, the feminist in me wants to get all up in arms about another show that portrays women as shallow and catty. On the other, I have to admit that Crowned looks like it could be gloriously over-the-top, from the "desashing" ceremonies with bejeweled scissors to the very presence of Carson Kressley. And I'm not above admitting that I laughed when the promo aired during the TV press tour over the summer; no matter what, it sounded better than Farmer Wants a Wife.

Crowned starts at 9 p.m. EST and PST, after the season finale of America's Next Top Model. Will you be giving the show a chance? To watch a preview, just

I should retract my last comment. I am feeling a bit cynical towards the ladies at the moment because of an offline situation.

You know why there are so many shows that portray woman shallow and catty? Because so many women are. Take a look around you ;)
