Alec Baldwin Removed From American Airlines Flight

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 7th 2011 6:30AM
Alec Baldwin entered into an online tirade against American Airlines last night after he was removed from a flight at LAX airport. The actor was reportedly playing 'Words With Friends' on his cell phone when he was asked to turn it off.

According to TMZ
flight attendants asked him to shut off his cell phone in the middle of a game after the cabin door closed, but while the plane was still at the gate.

A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told 'The Los Angeles Times' that Baldwin was escorted off an American Airlines flight. The source said police were not involved in the incident, which he said was between the airline and the actor.

'Sexiest Man Alive 2011': Which TV Stars Made the Cut?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 17th 2011 6:05AM
Bradley Cooper, People's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011'Bradley Cooper's been celebrating being named as 'People' magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011.' After saying his first thought on hearing the news was, "My mother is going to be so happy," the buff 'Hangover' star joked "I'm waiting for Dax Shepard to come out, and that it's an episode of 'Punk'd.'"

Cooper added: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. ... I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."

So which TV stars have been deemed hot enough to join Cooper on the list? Well, there are some conventional hotties like 'Luther' star Idris Elba, 'Community's Joel McHale and 'Game of Thrones' glowering Horse Lord Jason Momoa, but there are also a few guys who are, well, perhaps less obviously hot in the conventional sense.

Steve Martin Crashes Alec Baldwin's Record-Setting 'SNL' Hosting Stint (VIDEO)

Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin, 'Saturday Night Live'When it was realized that Alec Baldwin hosting this season premiere of 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) would give him the all-time hosting record over Steve Martin, we all assumed that Martin would make an appearance. The question was how and when.

Well, he showed up right away, during Baldwin's monologue touting his 16th time hosting. Martin was surprisingly gracious, and only wanted to make sure Baldwin wasn't using any performance enhancing drugs.

So they staged a fake drug test, with Martin analyzing Baldwin's urine by swishing it in his mouth -- he only detected Cialis. It was a fun bit, but much tamer than perhaps we would have expected. No jealousy or bitterness from Martin? We did, however, love when he asked surprise guest Seth Rogen if his being there counted as hosting. It doesn't.

Kathie Lee and Hoda Sample Some Schweddy Balls Ice Cream (VIDEO)

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford try Schweddy Balls on 'Today'It's been roughly 13 years since Alec Baldwin appeared on 'Saturday Night Live' with Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer for the infamous NPR Schweddy Balls sketch. The sketch has persisted enough in the public imagination that Ben & Jerry's just released a Schweddy Balls flavor, a vanilla infused with rum and fudge-covered rum and malt balls.

Wait, did you say rum? That explains why Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were eager to give it a try on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC).

Gifford didn't seem to full appreciate the subtle double entendre, though. 'Schweddy Balls' is named for its creator, Pete Schweddy, but Gifford quickly dispatched with the nuance. "I've been trying to avoid sweaty balls all my life," she said. "But apparently, this is not what you want to avoid."

Alec Baldwin Introduces His New Girlfriend on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Alec Baldwin's girlfriend Hilaria Thomas, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Alec Baldwin has talked about dipping his hat into the NYC mayoral race from time to time in recent months, but it looks like he may have a new reason not do to that.

On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), he admitted that while he might like to be mayor, he's not sure he'd want to run for mayor.

Considering how difficult and unpleasant political campaigns can get, it's certainly an understandable stance. Plus, he has a new interest in his life that's taking up more of his time, and rightfully so.

Baldwin's new girlfriend Hilaria Thomas was waiting in the green room, and David Letterman cut a shot to her smiling and waving.

'30 Rock' - 'Khonani' Recap

(S04E18) "Well it was off for awhile because my fiance was on his dad's yacht and got captured by pirates, but now, thanks to the A-Team, he's back." - Cerie (on her upcoming wedding)

It was only a matter of time before '30 Rock' addressed the whole NBC late night debacle. With the way the network has been running things of late, it's getting downright easy to be a writer for this show. Set in a fictionalized version of the peacock, all the comedy material they could ever hope for is just handed to them.

'30 Rock' - 'Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter' Recap

(S04E17) "Thank you, Lemon, but my true present is that exquisite ensemble. You look like a prison weed dealer." - Jack to Liz, on her singles dodge ball outfit.

Jack, Jack, Jack! I guess there are worse things than having to choose between gorgeous Elizabeth Banks and beautiful Julianne Moore on your 51st birthday. I'm with Liz, though. Guys have it easy. They just get more distinguished and stately as they get older. Girls get flabby arms and wrinkles. " You're juggling two beautiful women while I have to pay to have kick balls whipped at me," says Liz. "This is gender inequity out the yang."

Late Night Wars on '30 Rock' (VIDEO)

Late Night Wars on '30 Rock'Tina Fey is the star and producer of '30 Rock' (Thu., 9:30PM ET on NBC). She's also a friend of Conan O'Brien. But that probably had nothing to do with the current episode of the show. Although the latest episode did oddly parody the late night wars between O'Brien and his rival Jay Leno. Maybe it's just all a coincidence?

Lunatics Running The Asylum: 'The Marriage Ref' Could Use a Real Coach

by Mark Wigmore, posted Mar 26th 2010 8:41PM


For nine seasons, NBC and Jerry Seinfeld successfully dominated the ratings with the self-proclaimed show about nothing. According to producers, the rules of the ever-popular and manically-rerun 'Seinfeld' series were simple – no hugging, no learning. Who knew that Seinfeld could accomplish all of these goals all over again with his new series, 'The Marriage Ref'?

Now nearing half a dozen episodes, 'Ref' attempts to solve the little squabbles plaguing married couples, pegging one against the other in a win or lose contest. The show found a home on NBC thanks to the tragedy that was 'The Jay Leno Show,' the 10 pm-slotted experiment that went horribly wrong.

The Seinfeld-produced reality/game show was fast-tracked into the open Thursday position. 'Ref' features stand-up comedian and long-time pal to Jerry, Tom Papa, as the so-called Ref. According to his website bio, he has no experience in the field of couples therapy or any other professional credit in the field. That's why we decided to talk to a real psychotherapist, someone who actually dispenses advice to warring couples.

Alec Baldwin Boils It Down on 'The Marriage Ref' (VIDEO)

The Marriage Ref, Alec BaldwinOn 'The Marriage Ref' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC), Alec Baldwin compared a couple to 'The Royal Tenenbaums,' and he's got a point.

"They've got the Princess and the Pea bed, the motorcycle, the cat squatting on the toilet ... all we need is Gwyneth Paltrow smokin' in the bathtub."

Somehow, if Gwyneth Paltrow was smoking in their bathtub, I doubt they'd be on a show called 'The Marriage Ref.' Maybe more like 'The Twilight Zone.'

Academy Awards Broadcast Was a Comedy of Errors and an Error of Comedy

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 8th 2010 7:38AM
The Best Picture goes to
There was a great industry joke lobbed at the Hollywood awards machine by the short-lived but loved TV cartoon 'The Critic.' The joke featured a Midwestern farmer and his boy spotting a plane headed to Hollywood.

"Yep, son," the wide-eyed farm says with a big pitchfork in his all-American paw, "on that plane are the people who fill our lives with blockbuster movies, moronic situation comedies, awards shows where awards shows win awards. Get my gun, boy."

If the 82nd Academy Awards takes home an Emmy or even a nomination for their television broadcast, just about every middle American farmer with a sidearm will land on a terror alert watch list and every first class flight from New York to Hollywood will have to divert over the Gulf of Mexico in order to avoid the inevitable strafe of gunfire from America's heartland.

Oscars Telecast Suffers From Expanded Best Picture Field

by Scott Harris, posted Mar 8th 2010 1:03AM
When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced last year that they would be expanding the Best Picture field to 10 films for their 82nd annual awards, the reaction was immediate, as pundits and cinephiles debated whether the move would dilute the importance of the awards. Slipping through the cracks, though, was how the change would affect the broadcast and the ceremony itself.

Well, now we know, because the ramifications were seen early and often throughout the show, which aired last night on ABC. While producer Adam Shankman wisely used the change as an excuse to emphasize the films and the performances themselves -- something viewers were clued into from the first moments, when this year's crop of Best Actor and Best Actress nominees gathered on the stage to kick off the ceremony -- the inclusion of extended clip packages for nominees and testimonials from fellow actors led not only to one of the longest broadcasts in recent awards show memory but also to the removal of several Oscar staples, including the Best Song performances.

'The Marriage Ref' Would Be Funnier Without the Celebrities

The Marriage Ref
'The Marriage Ref' is a strange beast. After watching last night's post-Olympic sneak preview of the show, which moves to its Thursday at 10PM ET slot on March 4, it feels like a '60s-style celebrity panel game show joined to a TLC marriage show.

It's a pretty straightforward idea: a married couple is depicted having an argument over a specific issue. In the pilot, for instance, one husband wanted to get his recently-deceased dog stuffed and display the mutt in the living room, over his wife's vehement objections.

The celebrity panel, who in the premiere consisted of Kelly Ripa, Alec Baldwin and executive producer Jerry Seinfeld, talk and joke about the situation, coming down one one side or the other. The final decision is rendered by the ref, host Tom Papa, who tells the couple via satellite feed.

But the pilot made me want to see much more of the couples having their funny conflicts than the celebrities yukking it up over those conflicts. And that's a problem.
