Have you been wanting to see someone beat up Billy Ray Cyrus since you heard Achy Breaky Heart for the 1 millionth time? Well, you will finally see someone give him the take down of a lifetime and that person is CHiPs Erik Estrada. Plus, it is better than you could’ve ever dreamed of.
When you will see the thing of beauty? Sometime after Miley Cyrus’ dad’s show Still the King debuts on CMT June 12th.
In all seriousness, Still the King looks so wacky, fun and outrageous that I can’t wait to see it. It looks like such a hootenanny, you might forget how much you hate his one hit wonder.
Actually, I feel bad about being mean to Billy Ray because I really like him and that song, and I am sincerely looking forward to this zany show!
Two weeks after its return, "American Idol" has already claimed its first victims. CBS has pulled comedy-reality skein "Armed and Famous" from its schedule, effective immediately. "Armed" started with solid numbers when it premiered three weeks ago in the 8 p.m. Wednesday slot, but the "Idol" tsunami swept away a big chunk of its audience. Several unaired episodes remain and are expected to surface over the summer. CBS has slated a "CSI: NY" repeat in the slot this week, with "Criminal Minds" pinch hitting the next week. "Jericho" returns Feb. 14 with a recap episode.
Fans of Armed & Famous can get their fix of the celebrity reality show when an unaired episode of the Muncie-based series airs this Saturday on cable network VH1. The fifth episode of the series will air at 9 p.m. (Comcast Channel 36), with the four previously aired episodes preceding it as part of a five-hour, Armed & Famous marathon. Producers had previously said seven episodes of the series were scheduled to be made. A VH1 spokesman told The Star Press on Monday, "If the producers deliver to us the sixth and seventh episodes of the show, then we will air them. As of now, it's unclear whether they are finishing them or not." VH1 will again run the first five episodes beginning at noon Wednesday, Feb. 7. A phone call to Armed & Famous producer Tom Forman was not returned Monday. Chris Ender, senior vice president of communications for CBS, said Tuesday that the network had not technically canceled the show, which stars celebrities Erik Estrada, Trish Stratus, La Toya Jackson, Jack Osbourne and Jason "Wee Man" Acuña becoming cops with the Muncie Police Department. "The official term is 'hiatus,'" Ender said, "which is a fancy, Hollywood phrase for a show that's been pulled from the schedule and does not yet have a planned return date." Ender said CBS's decision to place Armed & Famous on hiatus "simply came down to the ratings." On Monday, members of the city's police force said they were disappointed to hear of initial reports CBS had canceled Armed & Famous. "I can't say I was completely surprised, given what it was going up against," Police Chief Joe Winkle said, referring to its American Idol competition. "But the fact they're saying it's canceled doesn't change why we did it, or the fact that many of us enjoyed being a part of this show." Winkle said he'd been happy with the way the MPD was portrayed in episodes of the series thus far. "I think it opened some people's eyes to what we do each night," he said, noting that the police department takes about 4,500 to 5,000 calls per month. Winkle said he also did not believe that the series' getting pulled would result in CBS retracting its gift of three Hummers for the police force. "That'd kind of be like them taking back a Christmas present, now wouldn't it?" he joked. Sgt. Rick Eber, who helped with training the celebrity officers, said his experience on national television had yet to sink in. "I'm getting calls from family and friends in Texas and Florida, people I haven't talked to in years who've seen me on the show," he noted.
