TV Tonight: "On the Lot"

TV Tonight: "On the Lot"

I'm pretty well aware that by the end of the summer, I'll be the only person in America still watching Fox's tortured "On the Lot." Still, I'm kind of getting a kick out of the show — sometimes because the films are good; other times to marvel at how a great idea became a train wreck in execution and ratings — and so, in an effort to psych myself up for tonight's broadcast, I've come up with a few things that excite me about this next round of "On the Lot":

  • The filmmakers now actually have to make films on the proverbial lot, rather than going home (though Fox has never said anything about it, I wouldn't be surprised if the films we've been watching the past few weeks were the contestants' audition movies). One of my frustrations with the show has been its lack of focus on how these movies got made: Did the directors have a screenwriter? A budget? Provided equipment? Maybe now, we'll see how the filmmakers are actually putting their movies together.
  • Six films per night, rather than five. More entertainment; less Adrianna Costa.
  • Guest judge Mark Waters — whom Fox will probably tell you directed of Mean Girls, but whom I'll tell you also directed The House of Yes, a personal favorite.
  • The contestants giving comedy another shot this week. In retrospect, maybe the comedies weren't so bad the first time around ... right?
  • No more Marty! Sure, it's one arrogant jerk down and several more to go, but his attitude annoyed me to no end, and I'm glad I won't have to watch another watered-down trailer.

My hubby and I watch it also. I can't stand the hostess. Ugh!! I just wish they would give you more info also though. When were the movies made? Why did they go home to film these last ones? Or were these the audition tapes? I want more info!!!
