Here Comes That Betty White with a New Show on NBC

March 31st, 2011 No comments

Betty White is off her rocker.  Truly if you look at the press release that is announcing her new hidden camera comedy show on NBC.  The working title for her new show is Betty White’s Off Their Rockers and not only is Betty hosting the show but she will also serve as Executive Producer.

With 7 Emmy Awards she surely deserves to be the boss.

So here’s the scoop on the new show.  Cameras will follow seven senior citizens who will play pranks on people who are much younger than them.  “People have been telling me that I’m ‘Off My Rocker’ for years” says Betty White.

There will be 12 episodes taped to start as Betty White heads back to NBC in series format since her days with The Golden Girls for seven years.

And this new show for the 89 year old actress is not her only work as she still is part of the cast over at TVLand’s Hot in Cleveland which is headed for season three.

‘Grey’s Anatomy: The Music Event’ and a Sara Ramirez Solo (Videos)

March 31st, 2011 No comments

It’s been five years for Sara Ramirez as Callie Torres on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy but now we’re going to get a chance to see her sing during the show tonight.  Yes, we’ve had an alternative music act or two close the show, drop a CD track in the middle of Grey’s Anatomy but now we will have one of the main characters do her thing and it will all happen tonight.

sara-ramirez2Sara Ramirez is the musical guest on tonight’s program.  The episode titled Grey’s Anatomy: The Music Event airs tonight for a actress that has already picked up a Tony Award for her work in the original Broadway production of Spamalot.

But tonight fans of the show, those that watch it all the time, will get to see her play out a musical fantasy in her head on several tunes. She will perform The Frays ‘How to Save a Life,’ Snow Patrol’s ‘Chasing Cars,’ and Brandi Carlile’s ‘The Story’ during tonight’s program.

Good move by the producers of Grey’s because fans are pretty much getting bored by the depressed, chronic, bi-polar character development on the show.

OK just some comments by fans of Grey’s Anatomy that have tuned to other programs.

So we want you to see some content from Sara.  And don’t forget to watch tonight’s episode.  It will definitely be a different groove for the show.

Judge Judy Hospitalized in Los Angeles

March 30th, 2011 No comments

She’s OK.  Judge show junkies (like me) relax.  The queen of all shows judge related was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital after taking ill according to TMZ.com where the daytime TV leader told them “I just needed a day to chill.”

Apparently intestinal discomfort was the reason she was taken to Cedars-Sinai today.  “A lot of things just zoned together including the bad news of the world,” said Judge Judy.

judge-judy1She told all of this to The People’s Court and TMZ.com’s Harvey Levin when she called her fellow attorney. Judge Judith Sheindlin had an MRI and other tests and is expected to be released tomorrow.

“I’m really fine and I wanted to go back to work this afternoon,” she told Levin.  Also TMZ.com notes that some casinos in Vegas are planning a Judge Judy slot machine so get ready your honor to make even more money.

ESPN Gets the Lawyers Ready, Again as Basketball Analyst Jammed Up on DUI

March 30th, 2011 No comments

There was Jay Mariotti from ESPN that got in to a fight with his girlfriend outside a dance club in Santa Monica.  Smacked her around then he got fired.

Not a good career move.

Another ESPN announcer got suspended as he used a line on-air that was taken directly from a newspaper story.

Not a good career move.

One ESPN announcer made a sexist remark and he got fired from his gig as a college football radio announcer.

Not a good career move.

But wait, there’s more.

Jalen Rose

Jalen Rose

Now Jalen Rose, a basketball analyst for ESPN’s NBA coverage has the lawyers over at the network scrambling after his DUI suspicion arrest on March 11th.  Rose ran afoul of the ‘popo’ after his car ran off a slick road in Michigan.  Rose, who played in the NBA at Chicago, Indiana, Denver and several other NBA cities, refused a breathalyzer at the scene.  He did do the alcohol related perp walk when asked by cops who also took him to a local hospital after the incident to pull blood for alcohol test.  Results yet to be determined.

Here we go again.  ESPN announcers at it again.  Will it ever end.  Read more at SportsGrid.com.

We could tell you a lot more about the Reality Rocks Expo but it’s really going to be intense so the best thing we can do is send you to their web-site for more information about the program that is going to be, as the kids say, “the bomb!”

Go to:

http://www.realityrocks.net/

Chucky Sheen Update, Arbitrator Picked, Ticket Sales to Shows Embellished

March 28th, 2011 No comments

So we tried to go a couple of weeks without a Charlie Sheen story but you knew that would be impossible.  So here’s our update.

On the legal side an arbitrator has been chosen to hammer out the brouhaha between Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros, the producer of the show.  Richard Neal is the guy that will mediate the mess among the combatants in the firing of Charlie Sheen, all according to the Hollywood Reporter.

charlie-sheen-and-jon-cryer

Then comes word from Entertainment Weekly that all that talk about sold out Charlie Sheen stand-up shows was a bunch of you know what.  His show titled Sheen’s Torpedo of Truth Tour which has to be the dumbest name in the history of dumb names, is not selling out as previously stated.  Tickets remain available at Ticketmaster for the shows scheduled which means Charlie Sheen has no juice with an act that has zero foundation.

The bottom line…who cares.  Most of us are sick of this whole mess.  And the losers that want to pay anything for an onstage show featuring Charlie Sheen is a waste of good money in this economy.

Seems Charlie Sheen is no Conan O’Brien which is not really a good comparison since Conan’s show is a waste of time on television after his limited tour after being fired by NBC.

This whole story seems like a waste of good blogging space.

Chris Brown, Rihanna on GMA Set Together? E! Says “Yes”

March 27th, 2011 No comments

And or course this would be one heck of a ratings grabber for the ABC early morning show Good Morning America now that the network says it won’t put paper on Chris Brown following his destruction of a dressing room mirror recently.

RihannaE! is reporting that ABC wants to have both combatants in their one on one battle in the ritzy Hancock Park section of Los Angeles on the set together for an interview.  The restraining order place on Brown as a stay-away from Rihanna has been lifted so them seated together has no legal ramifications.  And if I were Chris Brown I would agree to doing another interview rather than facing whatever charges that could be filed.

An ABC Network source told E! “it’s all about the ratings” and as we have noted several times on this blog, ABC is not taking any prisoners in its ongoing battle to unseat NBC’s Today Show as the top morning show.  So put Chris and Rihanna together and it will be like the recent ABC interviews with Charlie Sheen.  Which they used over and over and over and over and over and over again on the network.

Who would do the interview?  E! is saying it would be Robin Roberts whose questions to Chris Brown led him to the mirror incident.  If you remember Dianne Sawyer got first dibs on Rihanna after the initial beating handed to her by Brown but she is not involved in this opportunity for an interview.

This is Why They Call It ‘March Madness’ as The Underdogs Win Big (Video)

March 27th, 2011 No comments

The Butler Bulldogs and VCU Rams.  Yes the Butler Bulldogs and the VCU Rams are in the Final Four.  Did you get a chance to watch any of the CBS coverage of The Road to the Final Four this weekend?  One, great coverage by the network folks at CBS but you have two teams that are on an amazing journey to the big dance next weekend in Houston, Texas.

vcuThe number 11 seeded VCU Rams totally smacked around a number 1 seed in Kansas today by a score of 76 to 69.  At some points during today’s game it wasn’t even that close.  What an upset, by a team that was expected to get really beat up by Kansas today.

Then there was number 8 seed Butler taking on a number 2 seed in Florida and beating them74 to 71.  Another upset, another great game to watch on TV.

You just can’t beat great college basketball during what they term March Madness. There is nothing better than college basketball this time of year.  This is when the best plays the best and once in while some unknown gets a chance to dance at the Final Four.

This year there are two.  VCU and Butler.  An amazing accomplishment by two teams that no one ever thought would be anywhere near the dance hall let alone actually in the Final Four.

We thought we’d show you what it’s like to be an underdog and win.  A behind the scenes video that will give you goosebumps.  Unfortunately one of these two teams will be a loser next weekend because VCU will take on Butler to play in the championship game.

But this will be one experience that these kids and their fans will never forget.

Everybody Seems to Love ABC’s ‘Castle’

March 25th, 2011 No comments

This one has generated more response than Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga.  Even more comments than Charlie Sheen or the infamous Lindsay Lohan.

castle4The first time we wrote about Castle generated so many visitors to our previous story that we wanted to throw up some more content about a really good show.  So now we know that there is a cool underworld culture that really digs Castle.

We talked a little bit about the success of Castle versus Hawaii Five O and all heck broke loose with the fans of the ABC show that competes with the island based show.

Yes it’s a battle that Castle won last week and we’re looking forward to Monday night when they go at each other again.  Five O has a repeat of a really good episode where Daniel Dae Kim’s character Chin Ho gets abducted and has a bomb strapped around his neck.  Castle has a new episode titled Law and Murder.

Hawaii Five O might be in trouble Monday at 10PM.  Throw in a new episode of another real like in Harry’s Law and Monday could become an interesting night to watch with really good television programs.

Get that.  Never expected to have three solid options for viewing on Monday night.

March 24th, 2011 No comments

Sometime four comedians sitting on a stage just Talking Funny can be more hilarious that one of them doing their stand-up routine.  And this go round on HBO is gonna really be funny just from the cast announced on the HBO presentation of Talking Funny.

gervais-seinfeld
Ricky Gervais, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld and Louie C.K.  OK can this be any better group of top level comics sitting around talking about life, love and ripping off each other’s material and on and on.  Talking Funny comes to HBO on April 22nd at 9PM Eastern and Pacific time.

Some of the questions they will be asked include:

  • Who was the first funny kid you ever met?
  • When is the time to add new material to your act?
  • How do you know when you hit on the proverbial ‘thing’ that sets you apart ?

Also the use of profanity, off limit topics and a lot of other fun stuff will be discussed in each comic’s own style during the broadcast.

This will be fun.
