First off, the title of this show and the stupid, sanitized way they have to spell it in order to get it on the air aggravates me to no end. Not to mention that my spell check just hates it. Additionally, even the commercials can't say the name of this show. If you can't use the title in polite conversation, then this is not the title of a show that should be aired on network television. Either change it to "Stuff," or don't make the show at all. Maybe the latter one would have been a wise decision.
As you've no doubt heard by now, Michael Jackson has died. And while he wasn't really a television star, he was pretty much the biggest celebrity on the planet, and did rule the music video landscape for a while, and it just felt weird not to pay any tribute to him on the site. So, we decided to round up a few television stars' Twitter responses to the sudden loss and either praise or make fun of them (usually with typos). A stretch, we know, but grief makes you do crazy things. Tell 'em that it's Human Nature. (I'm so sorry.)
So apparently, the news that Twitter has signed up with a production company to make a competitive television show is not true. In truth, Twitter has made agreements with a whole bunch of production companies, and not just one, and there are probably more shows in the works that they don't even know about yet. While the stalker-sounding "putting ordinary people on the trail of celebrities" format could be a winner, we came up with a few more Twitter-based game shows that we think would do gangbusters.
Slow news day today, but someone is trying to piss on Buffy's grave, so gather up the pitchforks and head to Hollywood, Whedonites.
So unless you're one of the 26% of people that the Sprint commercial told me had never heard of Twitter, you know it's been a big week for tweeters. Tweeting? Twits? This lingo is killing me. Anyway: Ashton Kutcher won the race to 1,000,000 followers! Suck it, CNN. And Oprah's on Twitter now! Preemptively suck it, Ashton! But there's an even more exciting piece of Twitter news, one that brings us more joy even than the news that we can now follow Ice-T (and by the way...we're on Twitter too!)...
