Jeff Bridges was on Conan O’Brien’s TBS show yesterday and Conan asked the actor if he meditates. Of course, the Oscar winner does. He then decided it would be a good idea to lead the audience in an Omming session, so for the next one minute and fifteen seconds they all ommed. I wasn’t sure how long it went on for when I watched it yesterday because I fell asleep while watching it. When I woke up this morning, I tried to time it. After four tries and 3 power naps, I finally was able to figure it out. The power of Om!
I think that is the closest thing to the dead air, but instead of hearing silence, we hear ommmmmmmmmmmm. Sorry, fell asleep again.
Bill Hader will be on Sesame Street and he got to teach Murray and Elmo about the word “grouchy”.
Why he needs to school them on a word they should know all to well, I don’t know. I mean, you’d think they would be familiar with that word because one of their friends’ name is Oscar the Grouch. Wouldn’t they be curious, after all of this time, why they call him the Grouch? Unless this is the Saturday Night Liver’s way of telling us he is on his way to where the air is sweet? You know, Oscar has been living in that garbage can for over 40 years now, maybe it is about time he moves on? Although if our favorite green guy is being thrown out like the trash, I am sure that will make him very grouchy. Thus, why Murray and Elmo had to learn the meaning of that word before it was too late.
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?
