Before Simon Cowell was telling singers they were barking up the wrong tree on American Idol, he was performing as Wonderdog on Top of the Pops. OMG how furry was the 22 year old singer back in 1982, thankfully he started waxing by the time we got to know him. But in all seriousness his voice is as recognizable now as it was then!
Marie Osmond was suppose to have a syndicated talk show this fall on TV, but Broadcasting and Cable is reporting that due to these economic times the show is no longer happening. Marie was going to film the show in Vegas where she is currently doing a live stage show with her brother Donny Osmond.
“I want to express my deep appreciation for the faithful support and dedication shown by the numerous stations,” said Osmond, who returned to the public spotlight after a popular run on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. “It was my sincere desire to return their enthusiastic responses by producing an exceptional talk show for their fall schedules; produced with the high quality that is associated with the Marie Osmond brand for over four decades. This project, under proper conditions, still remains a strong passion of mine.”
I wonder if Donny was doing the show with her if it would’ve been a go this fall. While I like both of them solo, they are much better as a pair!
BTW the news is not all bad for her, KVVU is reporting that Donny & Marie was extended for 2 more years and they will playing at The Flamingo until 2012.
On Friday August 14th The N will be airing its first original movie, their Canadian show Degrassi Goes Hollywood and let’s they are starting off with a bang! The N will be bringing back alumni Paige, Ellie, Marco and Craig, recent grads Emma and Manny and current members of Degrassi for a movie that will mesh them all together, but still keep the Degrassi feel. I think that is in large part because it directed by Degrassi original Stefan Brogen aka Snake!
When Manny (Cassie Steele) bombs her audition for Jason Mewes’ new film, she must face the consequences when he casts Paige (Lauren Collins) instead. Paige’s old friends Marco (Adamo Ruggiero) and Ellie (Stacey Farber) fly to Hollywood to support her, but soon realize she’s become a diva overnight. While in Los Angeles, Ellie reunites with Craig (Jake Epstein) and old emotions surface between the former couple. Meanwhile, Manny (Cassie Steele), Jay (Mike Lobel) and the members of the Degrassi band The Stüdz board a school bus for a cross-country road trip to help Manny reclaim the lead role in Mewesical High. Will Manny make it to L.A. in time to claim the role she knows she deserves or will her high school nemesis Paige be standing in the way of her dream?
Not your typical Degrassi episode, but it is still the show we all love and enjoy! Believe you are not going to want to miss Degrassi Goes Hollywood when it premieres on The N at 8p and check out Degrassi: The Next Generation tonight at 8p!!! Next week I will write a longer review, but for now I will tell you that I so love this movie!
Yesterday on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, he brought up a bunch of the female audience members who were wearing sun dresses to open the show. Then he had one of his puppets make a comment and which one did he choose? The pig! Proving even he thinks all men are pigs!!!
Now Ferguson knowing he crossed the sexual harassment line, so he said that he would do the same on Friday’s show but with guys only in tight pants. Only one problem he pre-tapes his Friday shows so it wouldn’t be fair to us ladies. So midway through the show he brought up Randy and I don’t think it is as even keel as Craig’s think because we only got one guy. Do you agree?
BTW I love the way Craig interacts with the studio audience like and brings them up on stahe with him during the show. See what he does with them tonight on CBS at 12:35a on CBS because you know he will do something!!!
Two years ago Seth Rogen was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the same night as Megan Fox and she asked him if he would stay when she was on. So he being the courteous man that he was obliged and tried to go for the traditional late night male guest to female kiss. Only one problem, she just touched him arm and walked on by and he has been scarred ever since. Jimmy Kimmel being the nice man that he is decided to remind Rogen of that moment over and over and over again when he was on the show yesterday! I just love Seth’s reaction then and now to diss and no kiss. I actually feel so bad for him and can understand why she did, but that didn’t stop me from laughing at him. You know he probably took it so much worse at the time because it was a raw time for him since it was so close to when he had to film a fake sex scene with Katherine Heigl in Knocked Pp.
BTW tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC at 12:05a he has on Anne Heche and next week he has on Ashton Kutcher (Tue), Vanessa Hudgens (Wed) and Quentin Tarantino (Fri).
David Duchovny will be back as Hank Moody on September 27th and by the looks of that preview it looks like the third season of Showtime’s Californication is going to be a charm. Seriously how awesome does the upcoming season look? I like that Hank is going to be a teacher and boy is the professor getting schooled by women! He will never learn his lesson. Peter Gallagher put it best in that trailer when he says to Hank, “You are a G-d damn Girl Whisperer!!! I freaking love that line as much as the show.
The only negative about that first look video, is we didn’t get to see what Rick Springfield, who will be playing a role that will be stretch for him….an ’80s rocker! I can’t wait to see what they do him and what he does with that!!!
If you have never seen Californication, catch up with the first two seasons on DVD before September 27th because you are not going to want to miss out on the sex driven dramedy! It will go to places no other show will or should go, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be watching where they take it!!!
Last month HBO premiered Hung, a show about a man with a really big pen!s who needs money so he becomes a male prostitute. Well since the show started we have not seen how Hung he is and today on the TCA panel they answered the question. In a word…no. But why is a little bit more of an explanation. The reason why we are not going to see it is because just like how beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is the perfect d!ck. While I understand that and maybe because I am still bitter we never saw Brian Kinney’s pee pee on Queer As Folk, I think we should see how big he is! Don’t you agree?
Now forgetting how Hung he is, I have a new admiration for Thomas Jane. He said when he auditioned for the role the producers needed to be in another room so he didn’t poke them in the eye. But in all seriousness the producers said the size of the actor was not factor for the role. When Thomas Jane told us why we should watch the show, he is like I don’t know why it is about a guy with a big d!ck who f*cks for money. And that is enough reason for me to watch the show and it should be for you too! So check out Hung Sundays on HBO at 10p. BTW Hung was picked up for a second season, so maybe by then they will change their minds and let us see how big he is?!? A girl can only hope!!!
Also coming to HBO in September is Bored to Death with Jason Schwarzman, Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson. I am still not sure what the show is about, but after watching Jason Schwarzman on satellite I so have a crush on him and will be watching just for him!!!
On September 20th Curb Your Enthusiasm will be back for its 7th season and as we all know there will be a Seinfeld reunion. Today Larry David addressed what will be happening on the show with. For years Jerry and him have been asked about doing one and it just hit him why not do it on Curb. So throughout the season the reunion will play out and there will he a reason why Curb Larry will want to do it. The reunion will be seen in 5 episodes (with most of the Seinfeld cast appearing in all 5 eps) and we will follow it from the table read, to filming it and to seeing what it will like on TV in what is looking to be a one hour finale of the show. Larry said in prepping for the reunion it was like getting on a bicycle with Jerry and the two would meet to plan it out. Not much was spilled on what will be going on in specifics but he did kind of spoil us by saying Curb Larry might try to ruin it. I seriously can’t wait to see the Seinfeld Reunion play out when the show comes back on September 20th and to see some of the other funny things coming up for the season like Rosie O’Donnell and him duking it to pay for a check at restaurant and let’s just they wind up on the floor…luckily not in the same way she did on Nip/Tuck!!!
BTW the Seinfeld cast all looks the same!!! They seriously all look great!!!
Before Mila Kunis was going after Kelso and Hyde on That ’70s Show, she preferred the Malloy boys on Unhappily Ever After. OMG how awwwwdorable was the 12 year old in pigtails in that 1996 episode.
