SBA/RR Challenge: About Entertainment, a question

This post may be mistagged. 

I do not understand this category. Is this meant for posts about the entertainment industry, like Mr. Leshi used to write here? If it isn’t, well, fiction can be entertainment, music can be entertainment, poetry can be entertainment, arts/photography can be entertainment. 

If someone will tell me what this means, I suppose I could take a shot at writing one, though I don’t know all that much about the entertainment industry. 

Just in case, here’s a review of a television show, one I actually watched:

The Celebrity Apprentice was overall pretty ridiculous. It consisted primarily of a series of group tasks in which individuals would be individually judged. The tasks were strange, usually involving setting up events of some sort, and the judging, as it was in the predecessor show The Apprentice, often seemed arbitrary. The contestants ranged from entertaining to irritating. It featured Joan and Melinda Rivers, who were actually considerably more watchable than a lot of other contestants (Billy Baldwin, Clay Aiken), and Joan shouting in an outraged fashion at a woman Amy probably knew through Safe Bet:

”Yaw just a Pokuhplayuh!! Uh Pokuhplayuh!” 

What I also observed through both shows were the kids. Eric was on once or twice and was about as animated as a stick of wood. Don Jr. tried to exert authority, but it was all reflected. Ivanka came across as the most intelligent person on the show, which we now know wasn’t saying much.

And Donald was as status-obsessed as you’d think, and also as competition-minded. They ran a charity event that featured Barenaked Ladies, and he talked about how they were the Best, as if they’d won a horse race. And his apartment. No taste, wall to wall gold everything. 

And we saw Donald introduce Barron. Dressed to the nines, being deliberately and obviously trained to be pretentious. I realize this is a way easy shot, but Sad! Except I’m serious, it really was. Poor kid. 

Someday these shows will now be considered history because of what they told us up front.

"...and Joan shouting in an outraged fashion at a woman Amy probably knew through Safe Bet:

HAHAHAHAHA!!!   Actually I DO know her.  I don't like he a whole bunch, but know her because Jen Harman's ex-husband Marco used to style both of our hair (you can tell by the bangs  LOL) and she IS one hell of a poker player...  

It's also "funny" that clueless, dilapidated skank Joan Rivers was trying to insult DOCTOR Anne Duke (Ph.D) by calling her a"just a poker player".  (...and, no...  I never watched that show, but had to look up who you were talking about.)

Joan actually had an Ivy League education, though no Ph.D. She got an undergraduate degree from Barnard, at that point the women’s part of Columbia University

It is a confusing category.  I think you answered your question, however.
