The Internet marks another win this weekend, as due to popular Facebook demand, Betty White is finally hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time. I joined a conference call with the former Rose Nylund just last week to discuss her reaction to the Facebook group, why she finally agreed to host SNL and what kinds of jokes she hates (spoiler: it's jokes about weed, just like real old people!). Read on for highlights.
Today's news may not be Earth-shattering, but it's better than getting a Lyle Lovett haircut or rapping "Ice Ice Baby" on national television.Read Full Entry »
Can I gush for a moment about how much I love Community? The writing is tight, the cast is hilarious and the references to pop culture are outstanding. One of the show's top scene-stealers, Danny Pudi, recently took a media call to promote the show as well as a few new Abed-centric webisodes titled "The Spanish Video Assignment." While the shorts are fun and goofy, they're mostly disappointing; but if you're a die-hard Senor Chang or Star-Burns fan (and Lord knows there are many of us), give 'em a look. Below are some highlights from the Q&A with Pudi, who is possibly the world's sweetest actor.
On behalf of all of us at TWoP: Happy May 4th! That's how you wish someone a happy Star Wars Day, right?
On this week's episode of Modern Family, the entire extended family starts out on their multi-episode trek to Hawaii. Upon hearing about this, our minds immediately jumped to cursed Tiki necklaces, surfing accidents and Don Ho, à la The Brady Bunch's infamous trip. Can't you just see Luke accidentally finding a Tiki and then nearly getting bitten by a poisonous spider? While it seems that Modern Family is offering up a, well, more modern take on the group vacation to the islands, it got us thinking about other classic Brady Bunch sitcom plots that would benefit from this ABC show's unique spin.
A lot of cartoons are out on DVD today, but also the cartoonishly ridiculous second season of Dirt, starring a cartoonishly evil Courteney Cox. Plus, 19th Century Canadian CSI!
Along with interviewing other Bravolebrities, TWoP was able to ask some of those crazy Real Housewives about their shows and upcoming seasons. After watching their clips side-by-side, we came to a hilarious conclusion: If you ask any of them anything about their respective cast, they'll give you the same answers as any of the other women from any of the other cities. Take a look; It's hilarious.
There sure is some news today!
We sadly said goodbye to the sole remaining interesting contestant on this season's American Idol last Wednesday when Siobhan Magnus was unceremoniously voted out of the competition. She wore hideous outfits and sometimes took the screeching too far, but you can't deny the girl had talent. At the very least, you can't deny she was amazing television. In an effort to give her a proper send-off, I joined a media call with Siobhan last week to discuss how awesome it feels to be eliminated, all the letters (real letters, apparently -- like from the post office!) she received from young weird girls that she's inspired and how she's apparently this huge Andrew Lloyd Webber-head. She's weird, you guys. God love her.
