It’s been an exciting week when it comes to television and New Hampshire. Earlier this week, Josh Logan a Londonderry High School graduate, performed on NBC’s The Voice and nailed it.
Twins Mandy Young and Molly Sweeney will appear tonight on TLC’s What Not to Wear. The twins got some styling tips and new looks from Stacy London and Clinton Kelly, the show’s famous stylists. They got the makeovers in May, so it must have been difficult to keep their involvement with the sow under wraps!
And finally, the title of last week’s episode of Breaking Bad was “Granite State.” That’s it. No spoilers.
