Strangely quite a bit of news this Thursday! Charlie Sheen's roast gets an MC, George Lopez's show gets cancelled, and The CW gets on the Glee train.
Bachelor Pad is rivaling Celebrity Rehab for the cast with the most people undeserving of fame on one TV show...
Jennifer Love Hewitt as a Texan hooker and a film about the true story of high school girls making a pregnancy pact. It's a guilty-pleasure DVD kinda day...
NBC has revealed the fall and midseason slate of new shows that are meant to save the network, and some of them look good! But some of them... do not, we'll say. I woke up bright and early this morning to attend the red-carpet portion of the network's upfront presentation to get season finale spoilers from current NBC talent, and to ask the new stars what the hell their shows are about and, in one case, why their show is so racist. (Also, while I couldn't get an interview with Tina Fey, I did eavesdrop the hell out of all her conversations, which were all about shrimp. Just a little tidbit.) Read on for all the information I could get out of strangers in two or three questions while their publicists desperately tried to tear them away from me.
Most important news of the day: The Situation won't be appearing in Bones after all. We'll give you time to mourn/celebrate.
Hello there, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Camryn Manheim, and everyone else involved in Ghost Whisperer (except for Jamie Kennedy),
I've been a loyal watcher of this show since it started (and I'm not even nearly as embarrassed about that fact as I should be). I've stood by as you killed off Aisha Tyler. I suffered when Jay Mohr left (admittedly not your fault since he got that new sitcom gig). I tried to let Jamie Kennedy grow on me, even though I really can't stand him or his whiny character. I was skeptical when you killed off Melinda and then brought her back to life. I've watched the entirety of JLH's alternately bizarre and revealing parade of fashion. I went with you on some really weird story arcs. In fact, I don't think I've ever missed an episode.
Kill me now... wait, don't do it because then Jennifer Love Hewitt would want to talk to me and then I might have to be in the proximity of Jamie Kennedy and I so can't handle that in life or the afterlife. I am not ashamed (OK, not that ashamed) of the fact that I watch Ghost Whisperer regularly. In fact, I've been trying to figure out what the mysterious ending was really all about. Now Jay Mohr, who I find amusing and kind of charming, is heading off for the inoffensive and generic new series Project Gary (at least based on the pilot I saw) and taking his place is Jamie Kennedy. Ugh. Mohr had been sort of comic relief on the show as a professor and sounding board who listened to Melinda's wacky ramblings and advised her on otherworldly creatures. Once Mohr's character heads off on "sabbatical" (aka his new sitcom) Kennedy will fill his shoes as a grad student who presumably has an affinity for the supernatural. Unless he's undead, this is not cool. I find Kennedy's shtick uninteresting and usually avoid him, but to see him regularly on a show that is a guilty pleasure of mine sort of makes watching just guilty and less of a pleasure. I at least hope that they can find a way to tone him down... if at all humanly possible. Or kill him off and have Melinda cross him over to the other side. That I would enjoy watching.
Finally, ham you can eat in the bathroom.
