One of the most intriguing new shows of the season, Bates Motel, is set to make its debut on March 18 is A&E's contemporary Psycho prequel from LOST's Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights's Kerry Ehrin. Bates Motel skipped the pilot stage, going straight to a ten episode first season order, because of the kind of confidence afforded a show with such a prestigious predecessor like Hitchcock's film, not to mention the fantastic ensemble assembled to play the now iconic parts, Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as Norman. Don't you want to see what makes us all go a little mad sometimes?

Celebrities make a Splash
I’m not normally the world’s biggest fan of watching celebrities compete in strange reality competitions. In fact, I didn’t even watch the diving special that ran a few months back, but thanks to one widely reported moment, I can’t wait for ABC’s Splash to premiere on Tuesday, March 19. Apparently, former Family Feud host and popular comedian Louie Anderson almost died and had to be saved by Detroit Lions linebacker Ndamukong Suh during one of the practices, and I have to know what the hell happened.

If nothing else, one of the appeals of competition shows is the curveballs life sometimes throws. From Snooki getting punched in the head to Sue Hawk absolutely going off during the finale of Survivor’s inaugural season, the real world is sometimes crazier than anything a writer could come up with. And that, in a swimsuit, is why I’m excited to watch Splash. I need to know exactly what happened. I need to know if the media blew the situation out of proportion or if he legitimately almost died. I need to know exactly what went wrong, and if ABC decides to push it in the promos, I think a lot of people will be with me.
