First of all Len Goodman is back on Dancing with the Stars Monday night as a judge, with his 'luvverly' London accent and funny Brit' words and phrases. I always enjoy this show, despite not knowing the majority of the chosen celebrities, it's just glamour and a laugh all rolled into one slick package.
I am going off topic here for a second (so I can post the above pic for the ladies!), so just indulge us....the big disappointment this season though is sexy Maksim and his naked chest will be absent, how could they do that to the female population?!?!
Okay back to the male Brit' invasion........
This is followed by a new season of The Bachelor, which I swore I'd never watch again after last season's "I choose nobody' farce with Brad. But they went and pulled the dirty on me by choosing a British Bachelor, Matt Grant (anyone know any dirt on him?) and so I am going to at least have to watch tonight just to suss out whether he really is as 'posh' as he sounds!
Then if you switch to BBC America and 'Top Gear' after 8pm cst, you will be treated to Jeremy Clarkson, a legend in his own lifetime and particular fave of mine. Jeremy epitomises the phrase 'true British eccentric' and fronts my all time favourite Brit' show!
Gordon Ramsay is back in Hell's Kitchen on Tuesday night, another personal fave of mine and someone I really didn't like until I moved here. Both the Hubster and I are now big fans of Gordon and all the mad bleeping out that ensues on the squeaky clean TV here!
Jeremy Paxman has moved in on Friday nights now on BBC America with Newsnight. He is another Brit' TV legend and has been known to make grown politicians and world leaders beg or cry for mercy, with his relentless interview style.
Quite bizarrely Jamie Oliver has popped up as a judge on Oprah's new Sunday night show, 'Oprah's Big Give' which has nothing to do with cooking? Bearing in mind he is a celebrity chef, I am not sure how he managed to get this gig with the Queen of US TV herself!
Then we have the leader of the Brit' invasion himself - Simon Cowell on Tuesday, Wednesday and soon Thursday with American Idol, who incidentally sounds just like my brother when he speaks, which freaks me out a little! American women seem to find our Simon really sexy, which bemuses me with all his tight t-shirts and high waisted pants!
But then Ryan Seacrest is no match for the duo below, who really knew how to make Simon squirm on the Brit' version of AI and look less macho.....
America - I give you Ant' & Dec' who surely have to be the next big Brit' exports to US TV, although I'm not sure you'd understand their Geordie accents! The day they arrive I will be almost as happy as the day 'Top Gear' came on BBC America. It's really sad, but I can't believe how much I miss Ant' & Dec'......c'mon Simon if you can bring us Cat Deeley (!!) surely you can get these boys over here.
Lookout America, the Brit's Boys have arrived on a TV near you!
