'Beverly Hills Nannies'

The voyeur in me was excited about 'Beverly Hills Nannies'.

As someone who has worked as a nanny, I wanted to see what crazy things these supposedly crazy moms asked their employees to do.

Honestly, I was a little disappointed.

The shows premise is interesting enough. It follows (and I may have lost count here) at least five nannies on their first day with new families. Some of the nannies have worked for years, some of them are new to the California scene, but they all have one thing in common. They all know Kristin, who apparently (according to the show anyway) is some kind of super well-connected nanny extraordinaire.

What's particuarly interesting is that despite the fact that some of the nannies do have college degrees, almost none of them appear to have a real background in child development. Sure, they've all babysat etc., but have they had training that wasn't on the job? I'd think that a potential employer would want that too, but I guess I'm wrong.

In a rather bizarre marketing move, TLC has been advertising the premiere of 'Cheer Perfection' for several weeks, drilling into our heads that the premiere date was July 11th, 2012.

Now, the word premiere obviously just means "for the first time", so technically there is nothing wrong with them using it in their previews. However, I think it also led numerous TV viewers to believe that 'Cheer Perfection' was going to be a new series.

Are Beckett and Castle a Couple?

Update added 7/9/12

So, now that this has happened:

What's going to happen next?

Of course, we can only speculate (unless a writer wants to give us some insider knowledge!). We know for sure that Castle and Beckett did sleep together, because Andrew Marlow admitted as much HERE.

I often compare 'Castle' to 'Bones', which is a tad unfair until you consider the plethora of similarities between the two shows:
