Mtv is Trying a Move Toward Scripted Television

Written by , Posted in General

Is this really a smart move given the success of Jersey Shore? We will see. Mtv is trying to launch more scripted programming, and the new film, Turn the Beat Around, is the first step in the transition. Hopefully Mtv has learned something since the days of Undressed. Remember that cheesy soap opera they had on the air in the late 90s?

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.

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.”

John Mayer is STILL a Giant D-Bag

Written by , Posted in General

Remember when I called John Mayer a D-bag? Yeah…he still is. The writer behind the Playboy interview with John Mayer has agreed to “speak out,” and he basically says a whole lot of nothing. I will give you the highlights to avoid boring you with the mundane details from this interview. Here is the gist: Mayer wasn’t drunk during the interview; the press took his statements out of context; and Mayer “spends a lot of time in his own head.” Whatever. I read the entire interview and he’s offensive in every context.
