Sarah Palin is Not Happy With Family Guy

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

In a recent episode of Family Guy, one of the characters has a date with a girl that has down syndrome, and the girl’s mother is the former governor of Alaska. Sarah Palin wasn’t pleased. I hate to say that I agree with Sarah Palin about anything, but I just didn’t find it too funny. Seth Macfarlane, the creator of Family Guy, released a statement saying “from its inception, ‘Family Guy’ has used biting satire as the foundation of its humor. The show is an “equal-opportunity offender.” Watch the clip below to see Sarah Palin’s comments. I also posted a second clip which……okay I laughed a little. Dammit!

Doug Fieger, the singer of the song “My Sharona” has died. Sharona and Fieger dated for three years, and Fieger described her as being a bit of a muse for him. They remained friends over the years and she continues to capitalize on the song. As a tribute to Fieger, please watch the video below in the privacy of your own home so that you can dance around wildly. Nothing beats My Sharona!

The World Has Come to an End: Hulu to Start Charging??

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

I have heard this nasty rumor many times, but it is starting to gain some ground. HULU is looking to maximize their profit, and they may do it by charging for select shows. The select shows so far include 30 Rock, Modern Family, and House. I suppose free online television was too good to be true after all.

Barbara Walters is Done With Her Oscar Specials

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Barbara Walters has decided to hang up her Oscar specials because she has “been there, done that.” I don’t know about you, but this makes me very sad. I love Barbara Walters, and I look forward to her Oscar special every year. This year she will be interviewing Sandra Bullock and Monique. Watch her make this announcement below.

Nancy O’Dell may be the new co-host of Dancing With the Stars

Written by , Posted in General

Nancy O’Dell is rumored to be replacing Samantha Harris as the next co-host of Dancing With the Stars. Other rumored new co-hosts include Vanessa Minnillo, Melissa Rycroft, and Brooke Burke, but I think O’Dell is the front-runner. I still cannot believe that Samantha Harris would leave Dancing With the Stars to co-host The Insider. Aren’t you supposed to leave The Insider to co-host Dancing With the Stars? Interesting career move.

NBC Expected to Lose 250 Million Dollars on the Olympics

Written by , Posted in General

Despite viewership of around 97 million, NBC is still expected to lose 250 million dollars on the Olympics. So how did this monstrosity occur? In 2003, Dick Ebersol, the chairman of NBC Universal Sports and Olympics entered into a bidding war with Fox for the 2010 Olympics and won at the bargain rate of 2 billion dollars. Needless to say, Dick overbid. As Nikki Finke points out, Dick Ebersol is the same jerk that called Conan O’Brien an “astounding failure.”
