For weeks, Discovery has been promoting Eaten Alive, a special they said where a guy gets eaten by anaconda while he is alive. It turns out, after watching the show for two long hours, he was just tasted by the snake. His head was swallowed up by the reptile and his body was squeezed by it. Then when the crushing effect became too much for him, he asked for his team to rescue him.
So obviously this whole stunt was a disappointment to all who tuned in. In fact, some people like me, compared it to the time Geraldo Rivera opened up Al Capone’s Vault and nothing was inside. A comparison the newsman does not like. He took to Twitter and said, “Comparing Eaten Alive to Al Capone’s vault is unfair. I didn’t know the damn thing was empty & I didn’t stop halfway down belly of the beast”. He is right and his event was on live TV, so they found out when we did that it was empty. Unlike yesterday’s taped show where everyone involved knew he wasn’t really eaten alive. So in a way we should be a lot more disappointed by yesterday’s special because they knew nothing was really going to happen.
Now even though Geraldo has a point, both specials were big let downs. So which one do you think was a bigger let down?
The men of the Bible have had their story told and now it is time for the women to have their tale shared in The Red Tent tonight and tomorrow at 9p on Lifetime.
The movie starts out with Jacob (Iain Glen) meeting Rachel (Morena Baccarin) and falling in love with her. He asks her father to marry her, but on their wedding night her old sister Leah (Minnie Driver) shows up instead. The next day, he confronts their father and insists that he should be married to Rachel. Seven years later they are finally married.
The three of them are living happily together. Leah has given him a lot of sons, but Rachel has yet to give him any children. Eventually, Rachel has a son named Joseph and Leah has a daughter named Dinah (Rebecca Ferguson). Since she is the only girl in the family of 12 boys she is treated differently than her brothers. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t very protective over her.
One day Dinah goes the castle and meets the Prince. The two of them fall instantly in love and decide to marry without her father’s approval. Jacob isn’t happy about this and tells the King that all the men of his Kingdom must get a circumcision if his son wants to remain married to his daughter. The men all agree to get snipped. Even though they agreed to this term, her brothers are still upset that she married the Prince and do something shocking about it.
What happens next is of Biblical proportions and you will want to see Genesis come to life in this 2 part miniseries.
On MasterChef Joe Bastianich is very tough on the contestants, but on MasterChef Junior he is much more of tough but fair teacher. When he is done with season 3 of MasterChef Junior, that starts in January, he will be done with the franchise.
The MasterChef explained his decision in this statement, “After several gratifying years as a judge on MasterChef and MasterChef Junior, I have decided to step down from my role on the show. It has been a pleasure working alongside Gordon and Graham on five seasons of MasterChef and three seasons of MasterChef Junior, and I look forward to continuing my current collaborations with Shine America. As co-owner and partner of the Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group, as well as Eataly throughout the Americas, I will be focusing my time and energies on their continued global expansion.”
I am actually going to miss him. He might have been brunt with the contestants, but it was they needed. It is also what the cooking competition needed to counter Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliott’s nicer approach.
No word who will replace him, but Gordon Ramsay is open to your suggestions on Twitter!
For some reason Peter Berg likes to scream at people in his Instagram photos. Well today, Minka Kelly gave him a taste of his own medicine. By the looks of his face, it was a tough pill to swallow and he didn’t like it. Who knew someone so little, had such a big voice?
Last year, people were shocked when People named Adam Levine as their Sexiest Man Alive. This year, they got it right when they gave Chris Hemsworth the title.
His good looks are reason enough to give him the award, but Thor’s humbleness totally seals the deal.
What do you think of him getting the honor?
We’ve heard of the Cronut, now we have the Ranuts. Culinary Bro-Down created the latest donut craze and this one is made with Ramen Noodles.
So how do they taste? The creator described them as, “They’re starchy, they’re crispy, they’re covered in frosting and stuffed with custard — that’s about all I can tell you. I enjoyed them in my mouth, I enjoyed them a lot.” Then he tells his reader to make them for themselves and includes the recipe. So if you are daring enough to try one, check out his site to learn how to make them.
Part me wants to try one, and then the other part is like are you crazy?
Chris Meloni shared this photo of himself with a clown face and said, “I do kids parties….anyone?” On that note, he looks like someone Stabler would’ve been investigating on Law & Order: SVU.
Forget Twisty from American Horror Story: Freak Show, the Oz star is the one who will be giving me nightmares 11 days before Halloween.
Seriously, how is that the same guy that we loved in the cancelled-too-soon Surviving Jack?
He’s just so creepy as a clown, but then again who isn’t?
How many times have you been to a comedy club and laughed your a$$ off? Well imagine if you had to pay for each time that you giggled. That is exactly what is happening in Barcelona. According to BBC, Teatreneu club put tablets on the back of each seat that uses facial-recognition technology to track how many times you laughed during the comedians’ standup. So how much will it cost you? It costs you $.38 per chuckle with a maximum bill of $30.41.
I don’t know why I am so worried about this concept because I don’t remember the last time I laughed so much at the comedy club that I would have to pay the max. But something about it terrifies me. But then again I am so cheap, I think I would bite my lip just so I didn’t have to pay anything for the show.
What do you think of the idea of paying per laugh? What’s next? Paying for each time you dance at a concert or sing along with the band? Paying per clap and laugh at a show or movie? Paying each time you cheer at a sporting event? Wait, considering how much all of that is costing us these days, this might be a good idea…
In the year 1980something, Prince Charles is going to marry Lady Diana and the whole world is captivated by their upcoming nuptials. One of the people most excited about the Royal Wedding is Beverly Goldberg (Wendi McLendon-Covey). Tonight at 8:30p on ABC we find out that The Goldbergs wedding wasn’t all that, and Bev decides that she wants to renew her vows because of Charles and Di. Only thing is Murray (Jeff Garlin) really isn’t on board with the whole idea because afterall look who is he marrying and think what she has planned for the big day. Worst part is her dad offers to pay for whatever she desires, and what she wants is the perfect ceremony. The one thing that she can’t buy are the vows and she forces her husband to write his own. As we know he is not the best writer, but he does find his inspiration to say the perfect words to his bride-to-be-again. Only thing is when she finds out where they came from, boy is he in trouble. So is the re-wedding off? You just have to tune in.
The episode is not only about the parents, it also about the kids. Barry (Troy Gentile) and Adam (Sean Giambrone) start a garage band and Twisted Sister is their musical influence. When Barry hears his sister, Erica (Hayley Orrantia), singing with her friend and his crush, Lacey (AJ Michalka), he asks them to join the band. His thinking is if Lacey is in the band, she will fall in love with him. Will it work? Just like Twisted Sister and the Bangles (the band the girls like), they don’t mix well. But then again opposites do attract.
Tonight’s episode of The Goldbergs is sweeter than all the frosting on wedding cake, so you are going to want to check it out because who doesn’t love frosting? It’s like totally yummy and so is this episode.
A to Z debuts on NBC tonight at 9:30p and you are so going to want to be in a relationship with this romantic comedy.
Andrew (Ben Feldman) works for an internet dating company and he is of the few men who still believes in love. Zelda (Cristin Milioti) is a lawyer and she has given up on love. Tonight these two opposites are going to meet and we will follow their dating relationship for the next 8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days and 1 hour. What happens on that day almost 9 months from now, we will just have to watch this adorable show each week to find out if they will break up, get engaged or who knows? Here’s a little inside information, even the actors don’t know.
Even though Andrew and Zelda meet for the first time tonight, this isn’t the first time that they have seen each other. A few years ago, they both went to the same concert and saw each other from the distance. At that moment, Andrew feel in love with that woman. A moment that seems too good to be true and perfect for television, but it really happened between the creator and his now wife. Ben Queen shared this story about his chance encounter at the NBC TCA Summer Press Tour Day. He told us, “My wife and I, we fell in love when I was 23 years old, and we got to know each other and then realized we were at the same concert a few years earlier. I remember being in that lobby, I was there with somebody I didn’t want to be with. I remember looking across and seeing this girl there and thinking, ‘I wish I was here with this girl.'” Then he added, “When I found out that she was there at that same show, I was like, ‘That obviously was you, right?’ Her take on it was, ‘Yeah, maybe,’ which is pretty much our relationship.”
As you can tell, Queen and his Queen are opposites who attracted. Well for Feldman and Milioti, it is the same thing but in a different way. Feldman explained, “We’re not only playing characters that are opposites, but we’re sort of playing characters that are opposites of us. She’s a little more like Andrew and I’m more like Zelda in real life.” To which Miloti added, “I think that’s very interesting, that the two people that they chose actually are playing opposites of each other. I would say you’re much more like Zelda.”
When it comes to the two of them getting the roles, it was instant chemistry for the actors. Queen shared this about their first meeting, “When they got together in the room to actually do the network test, they had literally met each other an hour before. It was real electric. You could see it. There was real genuine chemistry between these two that I’d been told that this thing existed, and it’s real.”
An electric feeling you will see come to life tonight and every Thursday at 9:30p in this darling love story about two people who meet, fall in love and find out they have seen each other before. So make sure to add this show to your season pass when you are done reading this because just like Andrew and Zelda, it is love at first sight.
