Can you bluff your way to a million dollars? If you can then D. L. Hughley and ‘Who’s Bluffing Who’ wants you to be a contestant. The actor/comedian is finally doing something that makes sense for his career and that is hosting a game show for NBC.
Remember that awful program he had on CNN? And then he people running CNN wonder why nobody watches that network anymore.
Anyway ‘Who’s Bluffing Who’ is being produced by the same people behind ‘Don’t Forget The Lyrics.’ During each episode seven contestants will play and ‘bluff’ each other and even ripoff their fellow players cash to advance to win big bucks.
For those who think that ‘CSI’ is on its last leg well that could just be on American television. While CBS tries this summer to figure out a better way to promote the Thursday night show to get back to Gil Grissom’s ratings before he left the show, ‘CSI’ has become the number one show watched worldwide.
At the Monte Carlo TV Festival’s International Television Audience Awards
‘CSI’ won the honor for the highest viewed drama bring in over 73 million viewers worldwide.
‘Desperate Housewives’ wins the award for comedy and ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ gets top honors for the soap opera category.
Now that Jesse Williams is full time the eye candy has improved dramatically on ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ And he has one of those cool TV names as his character Dr. Jackson Avery will be back for a second season of the ABC drama. Jesse’s character joined the staff at Seattle Grace when that facility merged with another hospital during that ongoing plot last season.
He’ll be full time this fall along with another newcomer Sarah Drew who they say is still in negotiation for her return for a second season. ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ is headed for season seven this fall on ABC.
Clear Channel Radio must be changing underwear at the thought of losing Ryan Seacrest to CBS TV. Word around the radio circle says that Ryan Seacrest, who hosts the morning show on KISS-FM in Los Angeles, will be giving up that radio program to host a daytime talk show on CBS.
This has to be, quite frankly, after thinking about the possibility of this actually happening, the smartest move in the history of CBS Television.
Except for anyone associated with Clear Channel Radio, daytime TV could get a major boost from Ryan.
With ‘American Idol’ in steep annual audience decline on FOX, the thought of having Seacrest host a daytime talk program is perfect for daytime TV. First with Oprah leaving, the thought of just ‘Rachael Ray’ or the babbling babes on ‘The View,’ well is quite depressing. And that leaves us with Jerry Springer and Maury Povich as alternatives so having someone with 10 years of ‘American Idol’ will really bring youthful demos to a Seacrest hosted daytime show.
The buzz would be amazing.
Seacrest was seen with CBS President Les Moonves at a Lakers game recently prompting the possibility which would be brilliant.
We just report this stuff and are not responsible for the fact that people not only party at the ‘Jersey Shore’ on the MTV hit show but there’s a ‘Party Down South’ that you, yes you could be a part of the cast.
‘Party Down South’ is the actual name of the show.
Okay so here are the so called things needed for you to be cast in the show. You have to be between 21 and 35 years of age and you like to party in the South.
Yeah…that’s about it….
Guys and girls, they are looking for all. And you have to be hot, funny and proud to be from the South.
Apparently this is for real. Lindsay Lohan, who now has to stay away from guys named Jack Daniels and Glen Livet, is rumored to be part of the cast of the upcoming new version of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
Mom Dina says Donald Trump is close to the family and discussions seem to be underway to try to get her on the show. Problem is Lindsay has more legal troubles than a week of ‘Judge Judy’ defendants. And completing a full season of shows with a Los Angeles Superior Court judge placing an alcohol monitoring device on her leg could cause some interesting issues.
Actually just showing up for the show could be an issue with Lindsay’s track record.
Lindsay’s mom Dina says the troubled actress has three films in production and may not be able to do the TV thing with NBC. But what a smart move for what could be a massive audience increase for the network.
Casting is not underway yet for the next ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
The British are coming to U.S. television which is good because we are certainly tired of seeing them every morning lying about the BP spill down south.
OK so that we a wee bit editorial. But sometimes the accent makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck when BP executives just keep twisting the truth.
So let’s get back to this cool BBC series ‘Torchwood’ that is coming to Starz next summer. 10 new episodes will be taped with John Barrowman and Eve Myles as leads. Both will be seen in the Starz version as the premium channel will help with production costs of the show that features Barrowman as ‘Captain Jack’ the leader of a group protecting Great Britain from hostile aliens.
Those clowns at BP could be considered hostile aliens.
Anyway the group is now going global and will be headed to the United States to help with our alien problems. Several actors from the U.S. will join the cast of ‘Torchwood.’
Her character’s married. But not to his character.
And so begins ‘The Big C’ coming this summer from Showtime. Idris Elba who played the very well educated yet pretty scary drug lord on the HBO series ‘The Wire’ will join the cast of ‘C’ as the love interest to Laura Linney’s married with children character in the series.
Linney plays a woman from the suburbs who life changes dramatically after she is diagnosed with cancer. And she then goes and hangs out with Elba’s character.
And this is a comedy?
OK anyway life changes will make women from the suburbs play around with brothas from the city. But we still don’t see what the humor is so we will have to wait until August 16th.
How do you make $79,000 a year and be $11,000,000 in debt? I mean really how can anyone be that broke?
Well the reality of reality TV comes to the forefront as Teresa Giudice of Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ and her husband have filed for bankruptcy because both are broke.
They have filed for protection under Chapter 7 in Newark, New Jersey according to People Magazine. Apparently her husband’s real estate ventures have taken a turn for the worse due to the economy which is no secret to anyone.
This is the woman who gave her kids big time parties and shopping sprees while living in a $1.7 million dollar house in Towaca, New Jersey during the series. You can bet their creditors are really happy right now, you think?
Well Michael and Fiona are back in action. Michael’s got a new boss and Fiona, well Fiona can do just about anything and most men will just keep watching. Amazing that three babies have popped out of that bod. Then ‘HankMed’ is back for the summer as well and we saw the first sighting of Henry Winkler in ’Royal Pains’ back for its second season on USA Network.
Gabrielle Anwar as Fiona Glenanne and Jeffrey Donovan as Michael Westen -
Both did so well last week that USA Network claims the number one position of all cable networks and the expectation is that they will hold that status throughout the summer. Last year we wrote that ‘Burn Notice’ and ‘Royal Pains’ gave USA Network it largest number of summer viewers ever.
The only reason to watch television this time of year is for these two shows. Quite frankly we think both programs should be on the mother network of NBC. Instead of another summer ‘Last Comic Standing’ who saw ratings that were pretty of a joke.
