Talk about The A-Team with other B.A. fans.
While The Don hired Piers for a nonexistent job, his charity did walk away with a ton of money, which in the end of it all, was worth all of the no-holds-barred manipulation and fighting.
Hate him or love him, you can't possibly say this clip of Piers Morgan talking about his charity of choice for Celebrity Apprentice is anything short of endearing.
Sorta makes you want to watch America's Got Talent, huh?
Talk about the season finale and more over at the Apprentice forum.
If I hadn't stopped caring about the preposterousness that is Prison Break last season then I would definitely throw in the towel now. Apparently after all the hype and the tears and the angst about Sarah's head being cut off and stuffed in a box all Gwyneth Paltrow in Seven style, they've decided to bring her back. Surprise! She's not dead. It wasn't REALLY her head in the box. Are you kidding me with this crap? I'd given up on this show having any resemblance to reality, but this is just unthinkably annoying. What's next, did Abruzzi survive being riddled with bullets? T-Bag discovers that he never really lost his hand, that it was only a phantom injury? Michael wearing long-sleeves in sweltering temperatures in order to cover up the tattoos that are no longer important to the plot? (Oh, wait... they already do that one.) Plus, I can't believe that Sarah Wayne Callies --- who was more than a little bit pissed off when they axed her originally -- agreed to return. I mean, bringing Paige Davis back to help rejuvenate Trading Spaces is pathetic and irritating, but bringing back brooding Michael's love interest from the supposed dead is crossing a soapy line that makes me regret the hours I spent watching this show. They might as well have made the last season a dream sequence with Michael coming out of the shower and crawling into bed with Sarah instead. Oh wait... then they'd have to do makeup work. Forget it.
Discuss Sarah's return here.
Looks like Tyra Banks and America's Next Top Model's photo shoot creative director, Jay Manuel (you know the one with the voluntarily gray hair), are at each other's throats, so much so, that Tyra is thinking about leaving as host of the show. If this means that I won't ever have to listen to her talk about her damn modeling career in Paris, then peace out baby girl, don't let the door hit you on your way out!
I originally wanted to create a list of potential super models that can replace Tyra as host of ANTM, but come to think of it, after ten seasons and ten has-been winners, does this show really need to continue? There are plenty of imitation shows on the air that can fill in the void: Make Me a Supermodel, America's Most Smartest Model, Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency and A Model Life, just to name a few.
I'm not one to endorse fighting, but Jay -- whatever you are doing to piss Tyra off, keep going at it. Maybe throw in a few remarks about her candid bathing suit pictures and how she isn't as fierce as she thinks she is. Oh and don't forget to call her fat... She HATES that.
Have suggestions for a replacement host? Enter the ANTM forum to share.

The crazy geniuses/mad men behind South Park have put up full episodes of all their shows from the last 12 seasons on their site (Yes, even the recent Britney Spears makeover episode). Since I'm sure I'll get fired for laughing too hard while watching the "Ginger Kids" (Season 9) installment again at work, I'm not sure this is such a good idea. Sure Trey Parker and Matt Stone set about this in order to get traffic to their own site instead of having people just watch their work on youtube or the like for free, but seriously, with the proliferation of shows available on the internet via Hulu or network specific sites, is there really any reason to buy DVDs anymore? Or now that the writers get a cut of the online streaming profits, do DVDs not matter so much? Does no one else like to have the walls of their living room lined with colorful boxes that are filled with commentary tracks? Am I soon going to be akin to one of those people who insist on LPs instead of CDs or MP3s because the sounds quality is so much better? Potential firing aside, I should in all rights be happy that I can now spend my free time watching South Park legally without having to get up off my lazy duff and put it into the DVD player. But something just doesn't feel right about it. Like Officer Barbrady is going to come bust me for not spending my cash on the DVDs. But for now I guess free is good... or at least that's what we've been lead to believe all these years. Right?
