Did 'The Doctors' Trick A Man Into Penis Surgery?

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 7th 2010 7:30PM
the_doctors_cbs_logo_2010If this story weren't so strange, you would swear it was a FunnyorDie.com sketch. It could be a 'Saturday Night Live' bit, but their stuff is rarely this hilarious. Tyler Bowling, a 21-year-old Minnesotan who had a condition that caused white pimples to appear on his penis, received a free laser treatment for removal of the penile papules when he consulted with Dr. William Groff in Los Angeles. The $4,500 procedure was done gratis in exchange for Tyler's story to be told on CBS's syndicated daytime show, 'The Doctors.'

However, Tyler Bowling is filing suit against the doctor, his practice, the producers of 'The Doctors' and even the company that created the laser that was used to fix his problems, claiming he was tricked into getting the work done and becoming the fodder for the TV show.

'Regis and Kelly' Help Take Down a Criminal

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Mar 7th 2010 10:00AM
Regis and Kelly helped John Walsh bring down a wanted killer.
Sometimes morning TV can be more than perky weather girls and middle-aged anchors with over-sized coffee mugs.

One of the U.S. Marshal's most wanted criminals is now in custody thanks to the unlikely partnership of Regis Philbin, Kelly Ripa and John Walsh.

Just a week after being added to the U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted list and one day before his case was to be profiled nationally on FOX's 'America's Most Wanted,' former state corrections officer Albert James Turner, Jr. is now in custody.

Walsh visited 'Live with Regis and Kelly' Friday morning to discuss the 1,000th episode of the long-running true crime show and his interview with President Obama. He previewed the upcoming cases Friday morning, and the right person was watching.

As a U.S. Marshal's press release states, "a viewer tip led to Turner's arrest this morning at a mall in Concord, N.C. He was taken into custody without incident."

One Last Note About The Olympics, From Jimmy Fallon

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 4th 2010 11:28AM
Because of The Olympics, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' wasn't on for the past few weeks, which means he couldn't do his regular "Thank You Notes" segment on Friday nights. But he was in Vancouver and sat down with Bob Costas and a studio audience and did an Olympics-themed version of the bit. Costas accompanies him on keyboard.

Funny how Costas mentions Craig Kilborn at the end. I still have a memory of Kilborn doing something like "Thank You Notes" on his CBS show, or am I remembering wrong?

Team Coco Takes Over Leno Message Thread, So NBC Takes It Down

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 3rd 2010 5:04PM
ConanNBC has removed a thread on their Jay Leno message forum that was taken over by Team Coco. The Conan fans not only posted messages about Conan (that they wanted Jay "to see"), they also posted pictures of Conan like the one on the right (both bearded and clean-shaven versions).

I'm going to side with NBC here. Hey, you're bound to see that stuff online and there's a history of people doing things like this to get their point across, but it's their forum and they can do whatever they want with it, especially if it's overrun with messages and photos from fans of someone who doesn't even have a show on the network anymore. Of course, this doesn't excuse NBC from the other "let's delete Conan" stuff they pulled, including taking down all of his 'Tonight Show' clips from the site and the dumping of Conan collectibles from the NBC online store.

TV 101: How Keith Olbermann And Glenn Beck Eat Your Soul

by Jay Black, posted Mar 3rd 2010 2:02PM
Are these the two most evil people in America? Trick question: they aren't human!America, we need to talk.

There was a time when you were my favorite country in the world. Sure, you invented the Snuggie and insisted on airing multiple shows about making cakes for some reason, but you were always pretty stable. Well, that's changed and I think I know why.

You're addicted, America. You're addicted to something more insidious than nicotine or cocaine or Pokémon: you're addicted to Opinion Based News Shows.

Don't deny it! I've seen the signs! What started as an innocent attempt to have more talking points at parties has begun to rage out of control. Sometimes it seems you can't even make a move without a little taste of Keith or Glenn just to get you "right".

Well, I'm not going to watch my friend go down without a fight. This is your wake-up call America. This is your intervention.

What You Missed Last Night: Sarah Palin, Stand-Up Comic

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 3rd 2010 10:39AM
You won't see Sarah Palin on 'The Late Show' anytime soon, but things are friendlier over at 'The Tonight Show' so she was a guest last night. Not only did she talk to Jay about politics, her hand notes, and how the press treats both of them, she did a stand-up routine.

She did a good job, though it would have been funnier if we didn't know she was the one coming out. Way to kill the joke, Jay.

Max Headroom, Actor, Pitchman-man-man and Talk Show Host?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 2nd 2010 9:00PM
The 80's pop icon, Max Headroom, whose show is coming back on DVD, was more than just the basis for a hyper cult tech-drama and a shill for New Coke. He wore many big shoes, even though he had no feet, one can assume. He figuratively and literally was a talking head.

Max Headroom, who always reminded me of a young Christopher Titus immortalized in claymation, hosted several talk shows for the BBC and got his own taste of the late night dynasty on Cinemax with 'The Original Max Talking Headroom Show,' a cyberpunkish gab fest hosted by actor Matt Frewer as the digital stutterer.

Here's a hilarious sit down with William Shatner that's hilarious for two reasons: (1) the brilliant, improvised jabs they take with and at each other are themselves hilarious and (2) they are both such animated characters that it's actually hard to tell the two apart.

Howard Stern Rips Into Leno on 'The Early Show'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 2:02PM
Howard Stern has never held back when it comes to his feelings on Jay Leno. He talks about it on his SIRIUS show, he has talked about it on 'The Late Show,' and now he went on CBS' 'The Early Show' (from his studio) to talk to Harry Smith about Leno's return to 'The Tonight Show.' The words "vomit" and "thief" are mentioned.

At the end, Smith also asks him about going back to terrestrial radio and a possible offer from 'American Idol.' (Sorry for the video quality - CBS hasn't posted the video yet for some reason.)

Here's What Roger Ebert's New "Voice" Sounds Like

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 1:29PM
Roger Ebert appeared on 'Oprah' today (with his wife Chaz) and he debuted his new "voice." CereProc took commentary tracks that Ebert did for various DVDs and created a voice for Ebert that sounds like his and not just a generic computerized voice.

This is rather amazing. I continue to be impressed by how Ebert is living his life.

How Was Jay Leno's First Episode Back At 'The Tonight Show?'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 11:02AM
Tonight ShowIt's like he never left, isn't it?

Jay Leno returned to 'The Tonight Show' last night, and he pretty much settled back into the groove right away. Of course, there really wasn't much groove to "settle back into" since the 10PM 'Jay Leno Show' was 'Tonight 2.0,' a carbon copy of the 11:35 show with just a time change (oh, and no desk).

He still did his long monologue, he still bantered with Kevin, he still interviewed guests. It's not like he was going to drastically change anything. Jay was Jay and he did was he always does.

What didn't he do? Well, he didn't acknowledge Conan O'Brien at all. I guess that's no surprise since he didn't acknowledge Johnny Carson on his first show back in 1992. But you would think that he would have said something about Conan since it was the major TV story for the past few months, but he didn't. As the opening 'Wizard of Oz' takeoff showed, they really do want to make believe all of this was a dream. Good to see Betty White make a cameo though.

So let's get to the nitty gritty:

Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb Feud Cancels 'Brady Bunch' Reunion

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 1st 2010 8:00PM
The Brady Bunch opening All of the Brady kids were supposed to make a grand reunion on 'Today' this morning, but an old sibling rivalry prevented the magic from happening.

Eve Plumb and Maureen McCormick
, who played Jan and Marcia respectively on 'The Brady Bunch,' haven't been getting along. When the two learned they would have to share the same stage with each other for more than five minutes, the whole thing broke down.

Some blame the feud over McCormick's seedy tell-all book in which she alleges the two had feelings for each other, but others say the feud goes back much further.
