Last week, NBC announced their new reality show Better Late Than Never; and even though show doesn’t start filming for two months, the contestants are already conspiring against each other.
The comedic adventure reality show is sending William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye to the Orient and NBC is making them fend for themselves. Now that the news is out, the contestants are talking to each other on Twitter about it.
The Shat Tweeted to the comedian, “Is that an attempt to form an alliance so we don’t vote you off the continent? What are the rules? Are there any? 😘”
To which the contestant of I Can Do That told him, “@WilliamShatner the only rules I live by is ‘always have fun’, never trust ‘Gorn’, and ‘voodoo is real'” along with a photo of Dye holding a Captain Kirk doll and a screwdriver. The other three should be afraid because there’s a Fonz doll, a collectable figure of the football legend and toy versions of the George Foreman grill, so Dye can use his voodoo magic on those items too.
Good thing Shatner asked the others to form an alliance with him against Dye, so maybe they will make it back to America unharmed.
That is if there are any rules?
If this is what Better Late Than Never is going to be like, then the earlier this show can debut the better!
NBC announced their newest reality show today and it has the potential to be the best thing ever. Better Late Than Never is going to send Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye to Asia and make them survive on their own without any help from everyone. Basically The Fonz can fish, The Shat can use Priceline, the Boxer can bring his grill, the football colorist can be that funny looking American they want to take pictures with for money and I am sure they’re things that Jeff Dye learned on I Can Do That that will come in useful somehow.
Still confused by the show? Here’s the description from the press release:
Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye will embark on the ultimate international excursion with no assistants, no limousines and no lattes, in search of an intimate, life-changing experience. The one-hour series will begin production in August, traveling to Tokyo, Kyoto, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Chang Mai before heading home.
The five will navigate their way through each city â€” communicating with the local population, immersing themselves in local traditions and enjoying exotic food â€” all the while dealing with the unexpected twists and turns that any trip presents. As they check off items on their own personal â€œbucket list,â€ the five will rely on each other for support and encouragement and, in the process, demonstrate that friendship is the ultimate gift.
Doesn’t that sound like it will be happy day whenever it airs? Hopefully, it won’t jump the shark like one of Winkler’s other shows!
We have heard William Shatner sing The Beatles, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, and today on Queen Latifah‘s show he sang her 1990 hit Ladies First. Let’s just say his version of it is The Shat!
Who would’ve thought he could take her rap song and make it sound like it was always meant to be performed at the lounge. I mean, there are few discrepancies with him singing the lyrics word for word, but that’s just makes it so much better! To hear him sing about birthing babies and being the woman standing in front of us, just makes it that much better. Don’t take my word for it, watch Queen’s reaction it all. She is loving every second, just as you will.
BTW if you are like me and don’t remember or know the song, then you can listen to it below to hear how very different it sounds.
For years, star Carrie Fisher and star William Shatner have been having their wars and now it looks like that long trek is over.
Captain Kirk Tweeted the above photo and said “The mighty @CarrieFFisher heroine to many But when I went to lunch with her she tried to choke me” Then a short time afterwards Princess Leia Tweeted the below picture and said, “We made up after I killed him.”
So if Princess Leia and Captain Kirk can be friends and J.J. Abrams can direct Star Trek and Star Wars, then why can’t we get a Star Wars Trek crossover movie? They both take place in space, one in a galaxy far far away and the other one to boldy go where no man has gone before. So why can’t the Enterprise boldy go to that far far away galaxy? C’mon Disney and Paramount, let’s make this happen. It will be bigger than Batman vs Superman and X-Men vs The Fantastic Four. Who’s with me???
But seriously, who else is happy that these two finally worked things out and that we got this sweet picture out of it!
If you are like me then your favorite part of Boston Legal were the balcony chats between William Shatner and James Spader. Well yesterday The Shat did a fireside chat like the ones he used to do with Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show and it just wasn’t the same. Although it was a nice fix for people like me who are still missing the David E Kelly legal drama.
William Shatner recorded a special holiday message and I am not sure if he meant what he said or basically what the hell he was saying. Captain Kirk spoke to the camera with his fake goatee and said, “I want you to let the hair grow as part of the celebration.” Then he added, “I want you to let the hair grow, where ever hair grows. Let it grow. And worship it. And cultivate it. Admire it.” Is that his way of him saying he wants men to stop manscaping and woman to stop waxing? And don’t get me started on the second part of his massage because it is way too easy for me to go where no man, wait I am not finishing that sentence…
Now having said all of that, Shatner can say whatever he wants because he is The Shat. We just don’t necessarily have to understand everything he says and I think with this one we will just let it slide.
Months after Priceline killed off William Shatner as their negotiator, he has risen from the dead like Jesus Christ and Stefano DiMera and is back doing commercials for them. I knew he would not stay dead for long, kind of like his real life when the cameras are not rolling.
William Shatner was on The Late Late Show yesterday and he got Craig Ferguson to feel him up. But there was a reason why he wanted the CBS late night host to pat him down. He needed it done so that Captain Kirk could demonstrate his most embarrassing moment. Recently when he was going to fly on a plane, not the USS Enterprise, to South Africa and he made sure that he was wearing very loose clothes so he would get any blood clots from the long flight. Well when TJ Hooker was going through security the bell went off because of his metal hip and he had to have the TSA guy check him out. When the agent was patting him down, he had a Denny Crane moment and his pants fell down. Because he didn’t want to wear anything binding he revealed something that made him scream at Kahn at the agent. If ever he needed Rescue 911, it was at that moment.
But then again am I the only one who wants to know if he has a Big Giant Head as his Third Rock from the Sun???
I love William Shanter and I think he is the Shat, but when it comes to him singing Black Sabbath’s Iron Man I think it is sh!t. I get that the 80 year old man can do almost anything, and I have liked some of his past songs, but what do you say that. I am thoroughly scared for the release of Seeking Major Tom when it comes out next Tuesday. There are a lot of interesting covers on it, but I didn’t need to hear Steve Howe destroy Duran Duran’s Planet Earth. I do that every day in the shower myself.
