Seriously? OMG! WTF?

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!

Before Danny Elfman was nominated for four Oscars, he won an episode of The Gong Show with Oingo Boingo. What weird science the 23-year-old came up with for that 1976 episode.


Nick Cannon reveals how he got Beat Shazam

Jamie Foxx was supposed to host Beat Shazam again this summer with his daughter Corrine, but he suffered an undisclosed medical complication. Therefore, Fox needed someone to fill in for the ailing host, and they went with Nick Cannon.

Today, Cannon was interviewed by Extra, and he talked about how it all went down. “It was a lot. It was over text and emails,” he said. “I was actually working on something else, and they say, ‘Jamie wants you to do this.’ And I was like, ‘I’ll do anything for Jamie.’ Once I got the blessing, I’m there. I got the blessing from him and Corinne [Foxx].”

Does Cannon have the blessing to disclose what is wrong with Foxx? He does not, and he is going to respect the actor’s privacy. Then he added that when Foxx is ready to talk about it, he will. But until then, they are going to put out the information they want out there and not what some asshole wants to make up without any proof.

On that note. Can we talk about sad Billy Bush sounds trying to be all hip while talking to Cannon? In the words of K.C. and the Sunshine Band, “Baby, give it up. Give it up. Baby, give it up!”


Habit Burger releases a Rainbow shake for Pride Month!
June 1st, 2023 under Fast Food. [ Comments: none ]

Today is June 1st, and the start of Pride Month. In honor of its LGBTQ+ and ally customers, Habit Burger is selling a Rainbow Shake.

The shake features vanilla ice cream blended with rainbow cereal, strawberry, and passionfruit purees, blue raspberry syrup and finished with whipped cream sprinkled with crunchy rainbow cereal.

And instead of a cherry on top, they are donating $1 (up to $50,000) from every shake sold to It Gets Better.

I don’t know if it is because Fruity Pebbles is my favorite cereal, but that shake looks so freaking delicious! And at $5.39, I am sure I will be helping Habit Burger donate a lot of money to It Gets Better. As long as I forget that I am lactose intolerant.


Billy Joel ends his Madison Square Garden run after 150 shows
June 1st, 2023 under Billy Joel. [ Comments: none ]

Billy Joel is a NYC staple. And because of that, he has played Madison Square Garden every month since January 2014. However, that is coming to an end in July 2024 with his 150th show at the Manhattan arena.

“I’m kind of flabbergasted that it lasted as long as it did. My team tells me that we could continue to sell tickets, but ten years, 150 shows – all right already!” said Joel. “I do remember the first time we played Madison Square Garden, it was the pinnacle of my career. I thought, ‘My God, I’m headlining Madison Square Garden.’ Everybody in the world knows when you play The Garden, it’s not just New York. To our audience, I want to thank them for coming to our shows for this long. It’s hard to end, even at 150 lifetime shows. I just want to thank everyone for the wonderful thing that’s happened here.”

Joel played his first show at MSG on December 14, 1978. Then 35 years later, he announced his monthly residency.

While the 74-year-old’s time at MSG is coming to an end, his career is not. He will continue to tour, just not at the place he has called home 150 times.
