Justin Hartley shows the dangers of working on a set during COVID-19
October 8th, 2020 under This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

Justin Hartley is filming a scene with his TV sister, Chrissy Metz, today. While they were waiting to go on camera, they were locked in the new on-set cages.

Well, I guess he forgot we are living in a different time, so he banged his head on the plexiglass when he went to greet his This Is Us co-star. Ouch! On the bright side, at least he doesn’t haven’t COVID-19.

Let’s hope for the makeup department that didn’t leave a black and blue mark.


See the cast of This Is Us in their cages

As we know, COVID-19 has changed the way Hollywood films its projects. One of the differences is that while actors are waiting to film or go over lines on stage, they have to sit in little blocked off wooden and plexiglass cubicles.

This Is Us’ director Ken Olin shared a video of Mandy Moore, Jon Huertas, Chrissy Metz, and Chris Sullivan in their cages. To me, it reminds me of when I go to a pet store, and all of the cats and dogs are in their confined spaces. Therefore, I have to ask you how much is that actor in the window, and which one do you want to take home with you?


NBC is changing up their premiere dates
September 24th, 2020 under NBC, This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

Since 2020 is all about being sad, NBC is moving This Is Us’ season premiere up two weeks. The melancholy drama is now debuting on October 27th instead of November 10th.

Since it is moving up two weeks, Connecting and Superstore are each debuting a week later. Connecting, the sitcom that is shot via smartphones and Zoom, will now premiere on October 8th at 8p.

Then on October 29th, it will move to 8:30p to make room for Superstore. NBC revealed that America Ferrera will guest star on the first two episodes to wrap up her character. She announced, before the coronavirus pandemic, that she would not be returning to the sitcom this season. Since production was shut down before she shot her farewell episodes, they made sure that Amy will get a proper sendoff.

While they are dealing with a sendoff, Saturday Night Live is dealing with homecoming. They will be returning to 30 Rock for the season premiere. Today, we found out that Chris Rock is hosting, and Megan Thee Stallion is the musical guest.

Got it? Good because I don’t.

UPDATE: Mandy Moore is not only playing pregnant on This Is Us, but she is also pregnant in real life. She revealed on Instagram that “Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021 💙” This is the first child for Moore and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith. The two were married in November of 2018.

Microwaving tea got Phillip Schofield’s knickers in a bunch
June 9th, 2020 under This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]
Some woman, who goes by jchelle36 on TikTok, decided to make an instructional video on how to make tea. First, she filled the cup with tap water, put in the microwave for a minute, then in this order added the milk, the teabag, and finally the sugar.

Well, the British are blowing steam like a tea kettle. When This Morning’s Phillip Schofield saw the video, he became outraged. So much so, he ranted about it on the show this morning with Holly Willoughby.

Who knew making tea would cause an international incident, but it did. Someone call in the United Nations to remedy the situation.

When I sent the anchor’s tirade to my friend in London, she told me, They take their tea very seriously over here.” Too bad they don’t feel the same for coffee. I said it!

To see the video that caused the biggest war between the Yanks and the Brits since, well the Tea Party, then click here!


Sterling K. Brown’s wife is all of us listening to the Amen theme song
May 4th, 2020 under This Is Us. [ Comments: none ]

There have been a lot of great theme songs throughout television history like the one for Greatest American Hero. However, there is one that gets us up dancing every time we hear it, and that is the one for Amen.

The late Andraé Crouch’s Shine On Me just fills you with energy. You cannot sit still whenever it comes on your TVs. Even though GetTV plays it at 6a in the morning, and I cannot even think about getting out of bed.

Don’t believe me that you feel a power go through you when it is on? Look at Sterling K. Brown’s wife, Ryan Michelle Bathe, moving to it. I am so happy he shined a light on her feeling the spirit of the song go through her. Amen!

It is like going to church without leaving the house and listening to the clergyperson preach. Isn’t it?

You know, since Brown’s wife like TV theme songs, maybe she can convince her husband to talk to This Is Us’ Dan Fogelman about writing one for the NBC drama. After all, before he produced the Emmy winning show, he created the musical Galavant. There really is no excuse why This Is Us does not have a better one. Who is with me.

BTW Back to Amen opener if you want to hear the exhilarating tune, then click here!
