Buster Amazes the Kids With a Bizarre Balloon Stunt on 'I Kid With Brad Garrett' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 6th 2011 6:24AM
Buster the Balloon, 'I Kid with Brad Garrett'Brad Garrett had an unusual performer for the kids on 'I Kid with Brad Garrett' (Tue., 8PM ET on TLC). Buster the Balloon was described by one kid who'd already seen his act as "Awe-see-ome!"

With the kids looking on in amazement, Buster first filled a gigantic balloon to a size larger than he was before slowly climbing completely inside of it. We're not 100 percent certain that he was supposed to burst out of the balloon the way he did, but the kids were delighted nonetheless.

The image shown before his performance of him with his head out of the balloon dancing around was his more likely intended result, but nevertheless it's just the kind of bizarre stunt that kids absolutely love. And no we are not aware of any other subsets of society that engage in this particular activity (and we don't want to!). We're as innocent as these kids.

The Big Lie on ''Til Death' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jun 20th 2010 11:30PM
The Big Lie on ''Til Death'Well, this is the end of ''Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox). It's the last episode ever of the sitcom, so you might even say that this is the "death" of ''Til Death.' But we would never make an obvious joke like that.

The show has chronicled the 20-year marriage between Eddie and Joy Stark (played by Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher). Every marriage has its ups and downs, of course. And perhaps in every marriage, there's a dark secret hidden from the other partner. Or maybe not. But Eddie, at any rate, does have a dark secret -- which involves a lie that he made to his wife. However, his lie is a little odder than most.

[Spoiler alert.]

'Til Death' Is Really, Really Over

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 24th 2010 9:50AM
'Til DeathFox has confirmed some news that has been in the cards for a while: ''Til Death' has been cancelled after four seasons. Like so many other shows before it (*cough*cough* 'According To Jim'), it has avoided the axe for much longer than anticipated. ''Til Death' was even given an honor usually given to only science fiction on Fox: the Friday Night Death Slot.

Actually, by the time the show even got to its fourth season, the only consistent part of it was Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher. Eddie Kaye Thomas and Kat Foster, the next door newlywed couple that was half of the central premise of the original show, weren't even there anymore.

The best part of the Variety article was Brad Garrett's response to the situation. When they mention the showing having a 0.4 rating, he replied, "Give me a month and I'll take it to a zero." The network responded with dead silence. Those people have no sense of humor.

Poor Brad. At least he has those 7-Up commercials to keep him going.

Eddie Encounters an Almost Naked Doug on 'Til Death' (VIDEO)

Til Death, Naked DougIf you've had a roommate, chances are good you've had this happen. You run into the person getting a snack, and he or she is practically naked.

Eddie said it best when encountering Doug getting a midnight snack on 'Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox). "Wow. So much of you, so close to my food."

And you've gotta hand it to Timm Sharp for baring almost all. That takes you-know-what.

Watch the video after the jump.

'Til Death: The new According to Jim?

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 28th 2009 7:01PM
Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher of 'Til DeathEvery year, there's a show that's on the top of viewers' "You mean that's still on the air?" list. Whether the show was good or not, it was one that hung on in obscurity for years and years, getting just enough of an audience to keep it going. You know the shows I'm talking about: The Facts of Life. Wings. Yes, Dear. Matlock.Just Shoot Me. George Lopez. King of the Hill. JAG. Heck, even the great Scrubs was at the top of this list for many people for awhile (still might be for some).

But for the last five years or so, the reigning champ of that list was According to Jim, both because of its inexplicable longevity and its questionable quality. Now, with Jim Belushi's vanity project finally gone, it looks like another show has taken its place: FOX's 'Til Death.

The network just doesn't want to let the show die. Every time the show is in a low-rated slot, the network moves it to one that's higher-profile in an attempt to boost ratings. Case in point: the Brad Garrett sitcom will be replacing Brothers on Sundays at 7, starting January 10, after football's regular season is over.

From this clip below, it looks like Rivers is going to give as well as she gets on the Joan Rivers Roast this Sunday at 10PM on Comedy Central. I also like how the celebs dump on other celebrities at the roast. That's a nasty but funny dig at Carl Reiner.

Fox wants Dollhouse to fail early

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 16th 2009 9:10AM
DollhouseFox has given the release date for the premiere of Dollhouse, as well as their new musical comedy Glee and several other shows. However, I wanted to focus on Dollhouse for a moment.

Once again sitting in the Friday night Death Slot of 9 PM, this time it doesn't even have a lead-in of another sci-fi drama. This time, starting September 18, the lead is 'Til Death starring Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher.

The only reasonable hypothesis I can reasonably come up with is that Fox wants to broadcast all thirteen episodes of season 2 during the 2009 calendar year before they finally pull the plug on this show. This would mean that the entire run of Dollhouse would have been during 2009.

In short, if you really want the show to make it to a third season, I recommend buying a hundred copies per household member of the DVD set for season one. Otherwise, I don't see it happening.

Could My Name Is Earl jump to Fox?

my name is earl cast

According to industry scuttlebutt, My Name Is Earl is on the ropes and at risk of being canceled by NBC. Nikki Finke is reporting that it's practically a done deal at NBC, but Earl could be moving to Fox.

It's not just the lousy Nielsen ratings that have done the shaggy-dog sitcom in, it's also the rising production costs. NBC has an entire line-up that's bleeding in the ratings, so surgery is required. It is very likely that Earl will get the ax.

'Til Death gets revived for another season

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 12th 2009 5:02PM

Til Death has been picked up for a full fourth seasonHuh. That's the only thing I can say about the recent announcement that 'Til Death will be returning to the FOX lineup next year with a full season order. Well, I could probably add in a 'Hmm' or an 'Eh?' or even a 'Whaaaaa?', but they would all convey the same emotions.

I mean, who would have thought that the network had so much confidence in the show after it placed it on "hiatus" back in October (it still has 15 episodes left in its compliment)? It's not like the network had anything of importance to fill the time slot other than repeats of House or Fringe. Maybe the network felt bad that 'Til Death is, as of this moment, the only live-action, studio audience sitcom remaining on the network. Or, maybe they have some bigger ideas in the works.

Til Death dumped by Fox...for two weeks...for now

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 30th 2008 12:16PM
Til Death windowPrimetime Wednesday seems to be the toughest night of all for TV programmers. There's not one network that seems to do particularly well in the 8-9 p.m. time slot, and the juggling has begun. Fox yanked Do Not Disturb weeks ago, admitting it was a dud.

Now the Brad Garrett-Joely Fisher sitcom Til Death will be off the air for two weeks, effective immediately. In that time slot, instead, we'll be seeing more House, albeit repeats. Still, you watch, those reruns will do markedly better than the sitcoms did.

Til Death, to be frank, has regressed this year. I defended the renewal of the show when Fox gave it a third season, based on the episodes I watched last spring. But the comedy has really strained since its season premiere in September. There's no other way to put it -- Death is in the death throes and should be put out of its misery. This two week hiatus should be the end of the series.

Monk: Mr. Monk Buys A House (season premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 19th 2008 8:00AM
Adrian Monk w/fingers(S07E01) It seems like only yesterday when Monk, the ultimate obsessive compulsive Sherlock Holmes, began on USA Network, and now here it is the start of its seventh season. In all that time, for a man who doesn't like change at all, Adrian Monk has had to endure quite a bit of upheaval. The untimely death last April of actor Stanley Kamel, who played Monk's security blanket/therapist Dr. Kroger, was written into this premiere episode, in -- what I believe -- was a very subtle, graceful way.

Monk's sudden displeasure with his home is rooted in his discomfort in his life now that Dr. Kroger is gone. The ultimate egotist, in that Monk cares most for himself, Adrian is desperate to throw himself into work to avoid the irritating piano-playing coming from the little girl across the street and disturbing the sanctuary of his home. Kudos to the new therapist, Dr. Bell, for connecting the dots and quickly sizing up why Monk finds the music so displeasing.

Monk season seven -- an early look

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 17th 2008 11:01AM

Monk returns for a seventh season on Friday, July 18thOn Friday, July 18th, the seventh season of Monk will premiere on the USA network. For some this is incredibly good news, particularly since the show will be celebrating its 100th episode come September. For others, season seven is three or four seasons too many. It's these people who think Adrian Monk should retire to a Feung Shui-styled, completely dust-free room to live out his remaining days lamenting about his lost love Trudy.

Fortunately, Tony Shalhoub doesn't want Monk to retire. In a recent interview the actor who plays the obsessive-compulsive Mr. Monk said that there is plenty more to explore about the character and the people around him. This is especially true thanks to the revelations of the season six finale, which opened up a whole new avenue for Monk to find the killer of his wife. That, and the introduction of a new therapist into Monk's life (due to the sudden death of Stanley Kamel), have the seventh season looking interesting.

You can date Brad Garrett!

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 12th 2008 2:37PM

Brad GarrettLadies, your dreams have come true. It looks like you will have a chance to date television star Brad Garrett. He's executive-producing and starring in an online dating reality show called, duh, Dating Brad Garrett.

Garrett is best known for his nine-year stint as Ray Romano's brother in the popular sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. He is currently entering his third season as one of the stars of the Fox sitcom Til Death.

"An online dating show seemed like a logical choice given that I'm in the midst of a midlife crisis and averse to pain, which makes getting my ear pierced out of the question," Garrett said. "And since I'm not picky about my choices, I hope women of all sizes, shapes and colors will be compelled to submit their videos."

Women can submit videos to the Crackle.com site at Crackle.com/DateBrad. I wonder if he'll be more popular than Tila Tequila?

The Inn is in, but Kelsey & Patty are dumped

by Allison Waldman, posted May 10th 2008 12:36PM
Patty and KelseyFox has made the call, and it's a big "see ya later" for Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton. But their loss is someone else's gain. The pilot for the Jason Bateman directed comedy series The Inn has been picked up for a 13-week commitment, while Back to You has been axed. The Brad Garrett-Joely Fisher sitcom, Til Death, meanwhile, has been given another year.

Bateman, who starred in Arrested Development -- the Emmy-award winning comedy that the network dumped unceremoniously because of low ratings -- was behind the camera for The Inn pilot. The show, which is about the haves and have-nots in a fancy, five-star New York City hotel, has a promising cast of funny folks including Niecy Nash (Reno 911!), Jerry O'Connell (who looks like Jason's twin), and the really hilarious Jesse Tyler Ferguson (remember him on The Class -- he was so funny!).
