How far would your hometown go for a Klondike bar?
June 23rd, 2023 under Joel McHale, Junk Food. [ Comments: none ]

Have you ever wanted to see your hometown on a Klondike bar? Well, how far will you go to make that happen? Klondike and Joel McHale want to find out. So they are offering you a challenge to find out.

All you have to do is get at least three other people from your family, friends, or neighbors, take a creative photo or video showing the lengths y’all would go, and then post it to Instagram with #WWYDHometownContest and tag @KlondikeBar to enter. Oh, and make sure to find a way to incorporate something from Klondike’s brand identity, like the What Would You Do jingle, Klondike’s ice cream products, their brand colors, the polar bear mascot, or whatever you think represents them.

“You know what Klondike and I have in common? We’re both challengers at heart and we both love to celebrate fun, spontaneous acts of silliness,” said Joel McHale. “So, when Klondike told me they were challenging hometowns to prove who’s #1,” he continued, “I couldn’t wait to get involved and am excited to see what people all over the country will do for a Klondike. I’ve been a longtime fan of the brand and now, I get to judge the Klondike Hometown Contest! How sweet is that?!”

That’s right, he and people from Klondike are going to judge the submissions.

So what does the one winner get? They will get a personalized shoutout video from McHale for their hometown, an exclusive block party and their hometown will be featured on the packaging of a limited edition Klondike Bar. Pretty sweet deal. As sweet as their ice cream creations.

If you have what it takes, don’t wait too long to enter. They are accepting submissions until July 16th.


Joel McHale needs a show demonstrating products
June 1st, 2023 under Joel McHale. [ Comments: none ]

Joel McHale’s show Crime Scene Kitchen is back on Fox, and today he promoted it on the fourth hour of Today. Not only was he a guest, but he was also Hoda Kotb’s co-host for the day.

Part of being a co-host means that he got to try out beauty products with Amy Desai. Even though the segment was called Beauty on the Go, he thought it was a cooking segment and tasted some of the products.

Seriously that was the best talk show demonstration segment I have ever seen. So if the TV execs are watching, in between their freakouts that nothing is getting written because of the WGA strike, I hope they give him a show where he gets to try out the latest products that everyone, but him, is going to want because of the way he sells it.

However, the show cannot compromise his time on the highlarious Fox sitcom Animal Control. If you missed the series about an animal control department in Seattle, Fox is reairing it this summer.

After you watch that, you can check Jane Krakowski on Apple TV+ Schmigadoon! Why am I bringing that up out of the blue? Because she was a guest on Today’s fourth hour today too. To see her hysterical interview with McHale and Kotb, then click here!


Fox is still out of control with Animal Control
May 10th, 2023 under Fox, Joel McHale. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, Fox cancelled Call Me Kat. And today, the network announced that they are still calling Animal Control. The hilarious sitcom stars animals of all types, Joel McHale, Michael Rowland, Vella Lovell, Ravi Patel, and Grace Palmer.

And did I say a variety of animals that change up every week? That is because the show is about an animal control office in Seattle that rescues exotic animals and domesticated pets.

“We are thrilled our viewers have responded to Animal Control as much as we did,” said Michael Thorn, President of Scripted Programming, FOX Entertainment. “The incredibly talented ensemble cast, led by Joel McHale, along with our creative team, Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg, Dan Sterling and Tad Quill – not to mention a menagerie of wild animal method actors — have delivered a hilarious series that is sharp, witty, and warm, week after week.”

And Thorn isn’t lying! Animal Control is one of the few live-action comedies on Fox. But it feels animated because of the hijinx they get into during every call. That is what keeps me tuning it.

Well, not only the laughs but also the heart. Because not only are they co-workers, but they are also a work family who are always there for each other during the good and bad times. And they have more bad times than good. That is what makes comedies so funny.


Cheers to Animal Control for an enjoyable season!

Tonight at 9p on Fox is the season finale of Animal Control, and what a purrfect season it has been.

I wish I could say it ends on a happy note, but it doesn’t. Frank (Joel McHale), Emily (Vella Lovell), Shred (Michael Rowland), Patel (Ravi V. Patel), Victoria (Grace Palmer), Templeton (Gerry Dee), and Rick (Kevin Bigley) get together for a funeral. Sadly beloved C38 has passed away, and Frank is not taking the cougar’s death well.

He is not the only one who is not handling things well. Shred is ready to dump his girlfriend for Emily. But then he finds out that Emily is considering dating Rick. So what is he going to do?

He is not the only one who gets news he didn’t want, as does Patel. And Patel’s news will change his life.

And then there is Victoria. She doesn’t have any life-altering changes tonight. However, she does help everyone through their problems and throws them a party to say goodbye to C38.

And that is what makes Animal Control so special. It is a show about a family, a work family, but a family nonetheless. So they are there for each other through the good times and the bad. And we are there for them all. That, and the animals. Like the cute cats in tonight’s episode!

So tune in tonight and then watch the season again on Hulu or the Fox app. Because the more people that watch it, the better the chance that Fox will give it a second season. And it deserves another one over Call Me Kat and Welcome to Flatch.


It’s election time on Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, Animal Patrol gets crabs, and Ghosts love problems

It is on Halloween on Paramount+’s Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies. And the Pink Ladies are ready to celebrate. That is because Nancy (Tricia Fukuhara) made them costumes. Since she wants to be a fashion designer, they are totally swell.

Talking about playing dress-up, Cynthia (Ari Notartomaso) is having a hard time rehearsing for Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. So the drama teacher assigns her a partner to work with her. However, neither one of them want to work together. So what happens when they do?

Then it is time for the very anticipated election between Jane (Marisa Davila) and Buddy (Jason Schmidt). And no one is happier about it than Assistant Principal McGee (Jackie Hoffman), and she is going to sing about it. I so hope this is not the last song we hear from her.

When the episode ends, we will know who won the election. So who do you think is going to be the new President of Rydell?

I know who has my vote, Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, because I love this show.

At 9p on Fox’s Animal Control, a crab takes out on the of the officers. You have to see how because you wouldn’t believe it if you didn’t see it. And each incident on this fictional show is based on real-life occurrences. They aren’t. I think?

Frank (Joel McHale) and Shred (Michael Rowland) are called out to rescue a fox at a skate park. The fox gives them a major workout, and Frank realizes he is not as young as he used to be.

Then Rick (Kevin Bigley) asks Emily (Vella Lovell) on a date, and she says yes. But when he tells Victoria (Grace Palmer) plans, she runs and tells her boss. Will she say ghost him, or still go on the date?

All of this leads to a sweet ending with the two of the above winding up in bed together…

And did I mention the crab? It is these crazy scenarios that keep me tuning in and how funny it is.

Also, at 9p on CBS’s Ghosts, Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar) accidentally wakes up Stephanie (Odessa A’zion) from her year-long nap. The first thing she does is ask for what she missed. That is when she finds out everyone is hooking up.

Since she is the only teenager at Woodstone Manor, there is no one for her to date. So she is bitter about it and decides she is going to break up all of the couples.

By the end of the episode, one of them will break up. Will it be Sam (Rose McIver) and Jay, Thor (Devan Chandler Long) and Flower (Sheila Carrasco), Heddy (Rebecca Wisocky) and Trevor (Asher Grodman), or Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones) and Nigel (John Hartman)?

I can’t tell you that, but I can tell you to watch the funniest show on television.
