I'm sure you are going to be shocked to find out that Donald Trump is not running for president. Do I need to grab the smelling salts?
So this network upfront actually broke some news, albeit unsurprising news that no one really cared about, but news nonetheless. Towards the end of the very lengthy two hour presentation, Donald Trump came out to announce that he was going to continue making money on The Celebrity Apprentice and not take a run at the presidency. He made it sound like he was doing us a favor, but I cover entertainment television, so having him stick around on reality TV isn't really helping me at all.
Aside from that, the rest of the presentation was fairly typical, and filled with all the NBC executives reminding us as frequently as possible that The Voice is a big success. I tried keeping count of how often they mentioned the show's name, but they worked it in so seamlessly to nearly every segment that it was almost impossible. And just when I thought they couldn't mention it one more time, they had Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo come out at the end of the presentation to sing. Fortunately, I was already heading out the door at that point.
There's a new sheriff in town over at NBC, and a whole new slew of shows to replace all the shows that failed last season (pretty much all of them, basically). It's an entirely new programming slate over there, so I attended the red carpet portion of the network's Upfront presentation this morning to get some interviews with the new and returning talent. They were all so lovely that I hope none of their shows get canceled too soon.
Frankly, just about everybody involved with American Idol at this point could be nominees this week, but for the sake of diversity, I have only one nominee from that horror show and four deserving nominees from other shows entirely. Let's get right to the bloodshed, shall we?
This American Idol season is finally winding down, and while we've long since blocked the ridiculous people in the audition rounds, and only vaguely remember the unique spirit of Brett Loewenstern, the majority of the finals are still very fresh in our minds, unfortunately. In honor of the bad times we've all shared together, we managed to narrow down the most despicable things that the judges and finalists had thrust upon us this season.
Hate to break it to you, but Fox burst many a bubble last night.
Today is World Lupus day (really), so here's some news befitting the occasion.
Today we get the chance to look back on some child stars who might not be famous anymore, but will never be forgotten.
When Jacob Lusk was voted off American Idol last week, I expected some pretty over-the-top antics in his post-elimination media call. As in his musical performances, Jacob Lusk delivered a little bit, but mostly disappointed in his first big press outing, but I was still able to cull some nuggets out of his 20-minute interview. The highlights are below, and they are ridiculously inspirational, so you better be ready to have your life changed before you read on.
