VolksWagen SuperBowl Ad Not Creative, Stupid and Silly But Not Close to Racist (YouTube Video)

February 3rd, 2013 No comments

Give the world a break.  Give these white boys with Jamaican accents a break as well but this SuperBowl ad from VolksWagen is no where near as bad as seen from McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Anyway judge for yourself.

After Dis-OWN-ment, Roseanne Barr Heads to NBC with New Comedy

January 31st, 2013 No comments

Fantastic!  She tried daytime television.  Several times.  That didn’t work.  I think it was like maybe three tries with a daytime talk co-host role, one where she actually could have been successful had her ego not gotten in her own way and the other as Roseanne Barr tried to help Oprah Winfrey launch her cable television network OWN.

Roseanne Barr

Now Roseanne Barr has made the right move.  And NBC is grabbing on to the former Roseanne star to work with the comic on a new comedy for the network.  The agreement is a development deal with Universal to work on this new project.  Roseanne Barr currently has a reality show running on Lifetime which is the only television content from the actress-comedian.  She and her Roseanne star John Goodman actually tried to work together again on a comedy last year but that project did not come to fruition so Roseanne Barr is moving on to this new television comedy.

Um, I’m thinking Roseanne Barr has found her place.  Back on network television.

Hit the Road Jack or Hit the Road Sarah Palin Says FOX News, Now the Rumors Begin

January 28th, 2013 No comments

She’s one of the most contentious women in the world of politics, the world in general.  No matter how dumb most of us think she is, Sarah Palin matches the American constituency perfectly.

Dumb.

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin

So yes, my friends, this woman could be planning another White House run and look out because her time with FOX News has come to an end so she can start…well we really don’t know yet but the world keeps talking about what the next move will be for Sarah Palin.

Politician, reality TV personality, mother, grand-mother…Sarah Palin has a lot of options.  A lot.  And time will only tell what her plans are for the future.  And by the way never under-estimate the stupidity of the American public.  They will surely give this woman support if she intends to run for the top job at the White House.

Stay tuned.  this is going to be fun to watch.

Don’t Blame Brent Musburger, Blame the BCS, Blame the Camera Man But Leave Brent Musburger Alone (YouTube Video)

They’re still talking about it.  Yeah even the Today Show has jumped on the trash Brent Musburger bandwagon because of the comments he made about AJ McCarron’s girlfriend during the broadcast of the BCS Championship game.

Who is AJ McCarron?  Who cares!!!!

AJ McCarron

AJ McCarron

Well anyway he’s the quarterback for the Alabama Crimson Tide that played Notre Dame in the BCS Championship on Monday night and quite frankly may want to re-think who he decides to date in the future because the girl he’s hanging out with is former Miss Alabama hottie Katherine Webb.

Well the football game was a serious joke of all jokes as Alabama killed the life out of Notre Dame but the biggest viral blast comes from  the legend of all legends in sports broadcasting…that being Brent Musburger as the old school dude lost his mind over AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb.

And he’s taking a lot of heat for his comments.

Totally unfair.  Can you blame him?  Did anyone look at Katherine Webb.  The woman is without question one of the finest looking women ever shown on TV after America’s Next Top Model and Musburger was like a teenage boy’s birthday party at a strip club.

Why not?  The game was a bore, totally.  But Brent Musburger’s comments about Katherine Webb are what any “red blooded boy and I can’t stop thinking ’bout girls,” in the words of Elvis Presley.  Check out the video.

Current TV’s Eliot Spitzer Gets Morals? Say Hell No I Won’t Work for Al Jazeera

January 7th, 2013 No comments

Eliot Spitzer getting morals?  Huh?  Whaaaaat!!!!????

Yeah the former big guy politically in the state of New York who ended his career over a $5 hooker…OK over a $5000 hooker who thought she could screw her way to a career in….well a career in to nothing is bowing out of his show on Current TV after Al Gore and his partners decided to sell out to Al Jazeera.

Bye!!!

Kathleen Parker and Eliott Spitzer from the Original 'Parker-Spitzer'

Kathleen Parker and Eliott Spitzer from the Original ‘Parker-Spitzer’

Eliot Spitzer is out of work again.  After failing miserably over at CNN, Eliot Spitzer ran over to the former Vice President’s cable television network to keep working, staying away from his wife and children who think really less of him after admitting his bumping nasties routine with said hooker.

What was that hooker’s name again?

Spitzer’s contract was up and done with after the November election and with the ownership change the network is expected to forgo the liberal direction of its current programming to more of an international approach.

Good luck with that.  But the four people who watched Current TV will surely have another outlet for their viewing habits.

Cool, Calm, Collected “Hotch’ from ‘Criminal Minds’ Right? Not at 1AM Sunday in Downtown Los Angeles (2Chainz YouTube Video)

January 7th, 2013 No comments

Haaaaa!!!

Thomas Gibson is the leader of the BAU, the Behavior Analysi!s Unit of the FBI in his role as Aaron Hotchner on the CBS hit show Criminal Minds.  Cool, calm and in control. 100% during one of my favorite hours on television.  The sick, twisted Criminal Minds just gets better and better every new season but you can’t beat this story that happened over the weekend in Los Angeles.

Thomas Gibson as ‘Hotch’ on the CBS Show ‘Criminal Minds’

Thomas Gibson was out on the town Saturday night and clearly had a few too many scotch on the rocks and then decided to do the dumb ass thing…driving his automobile.

I don’t remember just how much money Thomas Gibson makes per episode but he held out for some huge bucks to come back to the show.  Why can’t he get a limo to drive himself around Los Angeles?

I ask that question all the time.  Never get a straight answer.

Right now I’m sitting on my couch, scotch on the rocks in hand and have no plan on leaving my apartment until tomorrow morning for my appointment with a client in Santa Ana.  I’m not even drunk.  But Thomas Gibson decided to pull a Lindsay Lohan on us and drive through a part of downtown Los Angeles that was blocked off for a marathon event.

Bad boys, bad boys…what you gonna do when they come for you!!!  Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

One thing you don’t do is screw around with LAPD.  This ain’t some 2Chainz video.  “I’m different, yeah I’m different, pull up to the scene with my ceiling missing” when the brother pulls over a cop and arrests him for holding some.

Nope.

Thomas Gibson got jammed up at 1AM Sunday morning and now is facing a Criminal Minds version in his personal life.

“I Wanna Be Free” Screams Ann Curry to NBC, Wants to Be Free at Last to Go to CNN

January 1st, 2013 No comments

Can you blame her?  She attributes her loss of the NBC co-host slot at the perennial Today Show which is no longer perennial to Matt Lauer and is ready to move on.  Getting the hell out of NBC is her goal and apparently Jeff Zucker, who has become a regular name on this blog, wants her to join him as he takes over at CNN.

Ann Curry

Ann Curry

Ann Curry, who just didn’t fit in as a partner with Matt Lauer is looking to jump ship to join the network that nobody watches for now.  But a move over to CNN from NBC would bring the continuation of Jeff Zucker’s ongoing grab from the big three networks of top talent.

Ann Curry should leave NBC.   Now.

With Anderson Cooper going, going, gone soon at CNN, Ann Curry would like to take over his slot at the network that has been garnering some of the lowest viewer rating in history and even bringing Ann Curry might help this loser joint of a network.

You go Ann Curry.

Jake Tapper has already jumped ship from ABC News to join NBC.  There seems to be more changes a coming as they say with talent at CNN which will be a welcome move.  Please take Piers Morgan away and send him back to London so that he can face charges of phone hacking because watching a few minutes of him on CNN is like nails scratching on a blackboard.

Ann Curry hasd a two year agreement with NBC so she’s kinda locked in to a network that dumped her in favor of…I can never remember her name but what a bad move which had a lot of viewers upset not at the fact that she was move so quickly after replacing Meredith Vieira but how it was done.

Matt Lauer had taken the brunt of the credit for dumping Ann Curry and even Al Roker voiced his displeasure at how the process took place.  Bottom line it could be a huge issue to get out of her contract with NBC.  But damn you gotta give Jeff Zucker some credit for shaking up the news industry in an amazing way.

This is so fun.
