A lot of dreams were crushed today, as we have been deprived of three very necessary things: more Sarah Palin interviews, more My Name is Earl episodes and, for many, any more TV at all. On the other hand, we get more Eric Roberts! It's a net gain!
Eric Roberts is joining the cast of the TV series Crash as an entrepreneur who wants to start a pro football team in L.A. ...Wait, that show is still on the air? Apparently, because they also signed Enterprise alum Linda Park and the girl from Doc Hollywood, Julie Warner. Well, that answers a couple of questions I had.
I had no idea that they were calling today, the day that America has to switch over from analog antenna signals to digital cable, D-Day. It's catchy, right? Well, some Americans are treating the day's trauma with the same response the Germans gave the real D-Day: fear and alarm. Apparently, people everywhere are freaking out that they have no TV signal, and it's mostly old people.
Tomorrow will be another kind of D-Day, as Spike TV honors the late, great, David Carradine with a marathon of his movies. (Hey, it worked for Lifetime and Bea Arthur.) However, contrary to rumors, they will not be featuring Mr. Carradine's mysterious manner of death on their series 1,000 Ways to Die, nor will they pit a David Carradine impersonator against a Spanish conquistador on a very special Deadliest Warrior.
Speaking of jokes made in bad taste, Sarah Palin has not only turned down David Letterman's offer to come on his show after he called her "slutty" and made a joke about one of her daughters getting knocked up, she has also suggested that she needs to keep her daughter away from him. Apparently, she thinks Letterman poses some kind of physical threat? Not sure that's entirely logical, but hey.
And, for those of you who were holding out hope, My Name is Earl is officially dead. It will not be going to TBS, or any other channel. Be free, Jason Lee's upper lip! Be free!
