Here's a childhood song that rings true in today's TV news: Rumors, rumors, are no fun. Rumors, rumors, scare people into believing that Howard Stern will be on network television.
With the season premiere of Lost offering us looks at two very different scenarios -- a safe plane landing and a post-bomb fallout life on the island - we got to thinking about what would have happened if some of our other shows had chosen different paths at key turning points. It might have improved their quality immeasurably, or at least kept them from going completely off the rails. Here are the alternate realities we wish we could've seen:
There is so much news today, I almost forgot that we're only five days away from the next episode of Lost! Could you possibly imagine?
Today's special is TV news, with three side dishes available: new pilots, silly law suits, or one small order of Bikini Boy.
His return to Hollywood stardom after an extended absence was a rapid one, but Jackie Earle Haley (Little Children, Semi-Pro, Watchmen) quickly surprised everyone by taking a role in the new action series Human Target. Playing computer expert Guerrero, Haley backs up the titular Christopher Chance, and Haley seems to be having a hell of a time. We got in on a conference call where he talked to us and the press about his upcoming debut as Freddy Krueger in the re-booted Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, as well as who he thinks Guerrero is and why TV seemed like the right idea.
Here's a tough question: If you were stranded on a deserted island, with which of the celebrities mentioned in today's news would you like to get stuck?
As the world girds itself for the final season of Lost, they have something else to get ready to say good-bye to besides the greatest TV show of the last decade. They can say good-bye to Matthew Fox, because he says he's done with television after this. Now, we're all for the man wanting to do more with his career, but we're not sure swearing off the medium he's been working in for so long is the way to go. Here are just a few reasons why Fox may want to issue a retraction.
We're still in the "slow season" for TV on DVD releases, but there are a few DVDs worth mentioning and a bunch worth making fun of.
