While I have been enjoying Leighton Meester on Making History, I am one of the just over 1 million people that has been watching it. Yet even though the sitcom is one of the lowest rated programs on broadcast TV, Fox is still airing it.
But that might be changing because the show’s star was arrested today. According to TMZ, Adam Pally was arrested in NYC on suspicion of smoking marijuana from an e-cig and possessing a small bag of cocaine. Why do I think his arrest will cause the show to be cancelled? If history repeats itself (no pun intende), then Fox will try to separate themselves from Pally because of his arrest. In the past they have not been fans of their stars getting in trouble with the law. But they don’t even have to justify the cancellation because the ratings for this show are beyond a disaster. Barely over 1.5 million people watched the show on Sunday in the overnight ratings and those are some very painful numbers for a show on the Big 4.
Talking about Pally, his other show The Mindy Project was picked up for a 6th and final season over at Hulu today.
Back to time traveling shows, sad news over at ABC. Starting this Sunday, Time After Time has been replaced by Match Game. While the ratings for the Kevin Williamson drama have not been good, they have been doing about twice that of Making History. I was loving the show because I was a fan of the movie, so I am upset that they pulled it from the lineup indefinitely. Why can’t they get rid of American Crime that has been doing worse than Time After Time? Oh yeah, it gets ABC award nominations, and they barely get any.
Finally some good news, Powerless will be back with an all new episode on NBC tomorrow at 8:30p. It had been replaced by Trial & Error repeats for the last two weeks, so I was getting nervous that it was never coming. Thankfully tomorrow, it will be flying back onto our TV screens.
If you have not seen DC’s first sitcom, then you are missing out on a show that is truly Super, man!
On Friday, March 18th, a man allegedly followed a delivery man into a DC Five Guys Burgers and Fries and waited for him to leave. Then when he did, the man went into a kitchen, cooked himself a cheeseburger and stole some bottled water.
Now, DC Metropolitan Police is asking for your assistance to help catch the Cheeseburglar. If your tip leads to his capture, you will get a $1,000 reward. You can buy a lot of Five Guys Burgers with that and you won’t have to break into one in the middle of the night to make one.
How many of us can understand what the alleged suspect was going through on that night? I mean, you go out with your friends, have too much drink or party and all you wanted is a greasy burger. Only problem is everything is closed, so what do you do? All but that one guy go home, sleep it off and go to late breakfast whenever they wake up the next day.
It’s been over a year since many women have claimed that Bill Cosby drugged and raped them and yet there were no charges brought against the actor. That all changed today when Montgomery County, Pa’s district attorney’s office announced that they are charging him with a crime relating to a woman’s complaint filed against him. DA Kevin Steele said he was charged him with aggravated indecent assault relating to an incident that happened back in 2004. According to the PBS Newshour, “On the night in question, Cosby is alleged to have given the woman, who was associated with the Temple University women’s basketball program, wine and pills that rendered her unable to move, at which time he sexually assaulted her.”
The statute of limitation is 12 years there, so they just had a few months before time ran out.
The actor will be arraigned later today.
It will be interesting to see if he will be facing more charges from other districts, now that one of the district attorney’s charged him with the alleged crime.
UPDATE: Bill Cosby was arraigned today and bail was set at $1,000,000. He made bail and also turned over his passport as part of the arraignment. His next day in court is January 14th.
When I was kid I remember seeing Kim Richards on Different Strokes and a movie called Tuff Turf. There was something about her I thought was cool. I think because she was such a Tom Boy.
Well as we know recently she had a lot of run ins with the law and yesterday she was arrested at a Target in Van Nuys on suspicion of stealing around $600 worth of merchandise according to KTLA. Not to make light of the situation, but who knew there was $600 worth of stuff to steal from Target.
But back to being serious, I hope she gets the help she needs.
Jimmy Fallon is the swellest guy in late night television, and that means you rarely ever hear him tell a dirty joke. Well, yesterday on The Tonight Show, he told not one but two naughty jokes.
The NBC late night host played Brainstorm with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Basically The Terminator would say a word or phrase, and Jimmy would go into his brain and tell us what he meant. There were a lot laughs at the beginning of their segment, but towards the end is when it got really good. When Arnuld said, “On top of old smokey,” Fallon replied with, “Where did Willie Nelson’s wife spend their honeymoon.” That was really risky for him, but he topped that one better than Willie Nelson’s wife topped Old Smokey on their honeymoon. Last up was “Die Hard,” to which Jimmy said, “What happens if you overdose on Viagra.”
I like this side of him and I hope we see it more often!
