Best present ever.
Sure, carolers suck, but what if they were doing a mash-up of Lady Gaga, Bing Crosby and Madonna? Nog for everybody!
If Smash is NBC's new Friends, is everyone going to start sporting "The Marylin"? I'll be here all week, folks.
So a coach and a long-haired hippie walk onto a reality show...
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.
Werewolves and rednecks and misfits, oh my! Also: space thieves, performance art, Big Bads, Mark Wahlberg and other scary things.
Lots of casting and cancellation news today, but the first entry in our lineup has been pre-empted in order to bring you a very special message about pre-emption...
The Modern Family is getting bigger, and so is the antiquated family of carnies on Heroes. Dancing may help Chris Brown, but it won't do Michael Jackson much good. And Jackie Warner wants to be a big loser.
There are quite a few television characters who seem to be absent from their TV shows so far this fall. That's not a terribly bad thing in all cases, but it is a wee bit suspicious, especially after House promised more of the mostly missing Cameron and then went and fired her. In light of that behind-the-scenes travesty, I'm about ready to send out a search party for these other guys.
We love television almost as much as Weird Al Yankovic does -- after all, the popular song parodist has recorded a dozen songs about specific TV shows ("Isle Thing," "I Lost on Jeopardy"), and even more about how much he loves TV in general. Unfortunately, it seems like he hasn't watched TV in several decades, because his brand-new single, the White Stripes-esque "CNR" is all about... Charles Nelson Reilly, the campy actor who was a panelist on Match Game from 1973 to 1984. Reilly was hysterical, and the song is great, but didn't Alec Baldwin give the final parodic word on Reilly when he played him on Saturday Night Live in 2001? All we're saying is, television existed after 1986, Al, and there's plenty of shows out there that deserve to be mocked in song. Here are a few we think Mr. Yankovic should watch and write songs about -- we've even provided ideas for existing songs to parody!
