I know there are legions who will disagree with me, but I just don't get The Three Stooges. In fact, I find them remarkably unfunny. I tried watching again this morning, hoping that my mind would be changed since I'm older and I've been watching some rather crappy summer TV lately so my standards have officially been lowered, but that was not the case. Don't get me wrong. I actually have no problem watching people inflicting pain on one another; I watched all of Jackass and Viva La Bam and Skating With the Celebrities, but this "scripted" show, that focuses on dumb people doing dumb things without much of a story behind it grates my last nerve.
In an attempt to become more like Grey's Anatomy (but with more bloody bodies) ER has cast four hot young things as regulars for next season (which, if there is a god, is supposedly the final season ... though they've said that like the last two years). Two guys who I don't recognize, Julian Morris and Victor Rasuk, will join Emily Rose (of Jericho fame) and the formerly famous Roswell starlet Shiri Appleby as new interns. Hmm... didn't House try adding a bunch of whipsmart new docs last season? Look how well that turned out. Anyway, given that the show has become increasingly reliant on having everyone hook up with each other (yeah, we get it, John Stamos and Linda Cardellini are attractive... does that mean they need to sleep with everyone?) we're sure these four newbies will fall victim to the charms of the dreamy Gates or Neela's pretty innocent seeming glare. Though the gals will probably also be subjected to some inappropriate comments and leering from Morris as well.
So last month we were sort of excited about the prospect of the Human Tetris game show import. But then Saturday I saw them auditioning freaky people for this game show at the local Dave & Busters (I like their mini-burgers, please don't judge). Anyway, Hole in the Wall, the nice pretty American title, is exactly what it sounds like, but looks even stupider than you can possibly imagine.
"Daisy has no involvement with Bret and my relationship, therefore there is no validity to her statement."
So yeah, he totally nailed that Daisy person. Probably wore a red bandana when he did it, too. He's Bret Michaels. I'm Mindy Monez. I have no idea what I'm talking about.
It seems the suits over there are finally coming to their senses, because The Hollywood Reporter is dishing dirt that the network inked a first-look deal with the one and only Jason Bateman to develop a slew of new series. This two years after they cancelled the Bateman vehicle (and stroke of comic genius) Arrested Development. But now the B-Man -- who recently directed the pilot for the new Fox comedy series Do Not Disturb and will lend his voice to the upcoming Mitchell Hurwitz cartoon chucklefest Sit Down and Shut Up -- is back in the saddle.
