'Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles': 'I might be a Jew, but I love German pancakes!'

As reality TV-watching wasteoids, we’re using to dealing with annoying on-screen pop-up polls, aggressive hashtags (yes, even things in grey fonts at 75 percent opacity can be aggressive — it is the ’90s!), and promotional tie-ins. They’re so awful. Oh, how we suffer! But last night’s Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles offered up the most absurd and inconsequential — and therefore my favorite — real-time viewer poll of the summer, when squirmy real estate weasel Josh Flagg agreed to let an underling treat him to an IHOP breakfast.

The passion of Flagg’s argument that IHOP needs to permanently switch its style of German pancakes from the half moon (pictured, barely, in diagram) back to the traditional rectangle really hit home for me. And the poll question stuck with me all night, whispering softly in my ear things like “You should be eating more carbs in Los Angeles” and “Why not pancakes topped with eggs?” It was stirring.

“The ones in West Hollywood — they serve it more like a Crepe Suzette!” Flagg continued angrily. It’s so true, and it should be a national outrage. The show needs more impassioned arguments like this one to balance out the intramural bitchery we usually between Flagg and Josh Altman.

'Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles' premiere: What are these weasels up to now?

Thank God we didn’t even have to wait a week between installments of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing. New York wrapped up last week, and Wednesday’s premiere of Los Angeles came out firing. (The guns are the Joshes’ middle fingers.) Yep, Madison, Josh, and Josh are back with more McMalibu PlayLands and sweeping city views to both intrigue and thoroughly disgust you as you contemplate your own sorry lot in life.

So how are they doing? Let’s catch up: READ FULL STORY

'Million Dollar Listing New York' finale: High kick?

On the season 2 finale of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York, Luis sold a Richard Meier West Village unit that I would sell my soul to live in, which would never even work because my soul is worth approximately $6.4 million under the asking price. DAMN RICH PEOPLE. Ugh. End of recap. But no.

Frederik went into business with the king of all evil (Donald Trump). And in a prompt and businesslike Central Park bench meeting, Frederik and Luis patched up their differences with a solid “hug it out.” Oh, and Top American Cretin Ryan Serhant used a lascivious new Upper West Side listing featuring Catholic revival decor, spy cams everywhere, and sex swing hooks on the ceiling (blame New York!) to stage a completely absurd fakeout screening of a movie from his nemesis Frederik’s past porn career as Tag Eriksson. Man, that was a mouthful. (That’s what he said.)

I took up watching Million Dollar Listing: New York while on vacation and can now never give it up, as the show so perfectly achieves my reality TV trifecta: It warms my heart, is aggressively absurd, and makes me die inside. A rundown of last night’s installment: READ FULL STORY
