A School Teacher Plays 'You Deserve It' For a Widowed Friend (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 4:15AM
'You Deserve It'ABC is back in the game show business, but their latest entry has a philanthropic twist. In 'You Deserve It' (Mon., 9PM ET on ABC), contestants participate in the quiz show with all of their winnings going toward someone else. Someone in their life who they think deserves it.

It creates a whole different kind of anticipation and tension, especially because they're not letting the recipient of the winnings know how things are going until it's all over. But for the player, they get that sense of doing something wonderful for someone they care about.

I'd need a hole in my head to watch Hole in the Wall every week

Hole in the Wall
I love quirky and unique game shows as much as the next guy, but can you really base a whole show off of people trying to fit their bodies into a shape in a wall before they get pushed into a pool of water? FOX thinks so, with their new game show Hole in the Wall. I know it's a huge hit overseas, I just don't get why. Maybe if the challenge were just one of several different types of challenges in a show, it'd be more compelling.

If every week on Survivor the challenge was to stand on a pole out in the water until you were the last man standing ... every week the same thing ... I think that show would have gone off the air a long time ago. And yet, FOX seems to think we can watch this for an hour a week and keep tuning in. Of course, we keep tuning into Deal or No Deal which is basically just picking briefcases so maybe we can.

Hole in the Wall finds its hosts

Brooke BurnsHole in the Wall, this summer's latest Japanese game show ripoff, has announced its hosts. Actress Brooke Burns and L.A. weather anchor Mark Thompson will be presiding over Fox's version of human Tetris. Both have game show experience, with Burns having served as the host of Dog Eat Dog and Thompson providing the voiceover for Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

Hole is being brought to America by American Idol producers FremantleMedia North America and came to be after clips of the Japanese version became hugely popular on YouTube. Ellen DeGeneres also got a kick out of the Japanese competition, not only featuring several clips on her talk show, but even going so far as having audience members participate in her own version.

Reasons why I think ABC should renew Miss Guided

Judy Greer
TV Squadder Paul Goebel reviewed the series premiere of the ABC comedy Miss Guided. He wasn't sure what to make of the show after the first airing and I must admit that I also had my doubts about this new comedy. Judy Greer is a joy to watch as guidance counselor Becky Freeley but the comedy was predictable and the cast way too beautiful to portray a real high school. However, I decided to stick with it and ended up enjoying the show's storylines and characters as well as the interview-like tidbits.

The series aired its season finale last week and is now awaiting ABC's upfronts to know if it'll come back next season or have to close the books. To help ABC make its decision, here are some reasons why Miss Guided should be renewed.

ABC gives Miss/Guided a go

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 28th 2008 9:21AM
Miss GuidedIn the flush of all the returning series with fresh episodes comes this tasty morsel of news. ABC will premiere Miss/Guided, a new sitcom starring Judy Greer (Love Monkey) on March 18.

Miss Guided
is the story of Becky Freeley, who returns to the same high school she went to as a teenager as a guidance counselor, sorta, kinda like Welcome Back, Kotter. But Becky wasn't a sweat hog in her high school days -- she was an ugly duckling with braces and teenage anxieties. Now, as an adult, she hopes to be able to handle HS with more elan. Becky's hopes hit a speed bump when she meets the sexy mechanic-turned Spanish teacher, Tim (Kristoffer Polaha), whom she likes...a lot. Then, she learns that the new English teacher is Lisa Germain (Brooke Burns), her former nemesis back in school. And wouldn't you know it, Lisa likes Tim, too!

Former SNL member Chris Parnell joins the cast of Miss/GuidedFormer Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Parnell is moving up in the television world from guest-star/recurring character to prime-time regular. He has just been picked to star in ABC's mid-season comedy Miss/Guided.

Guided stars Judy Greer as a former high school wallflower who returns to her alma mater as a guidance counselor. Parnell will play a fellow counselor. Whether he'll be a friend, enemy, lover, sprout horns, or channel Tom Brokaw (one of the characters he played on SNL) is unknown. What is known is that he'll be joining other cast members Brooke Burns and Kristoffer Polaha.

Parnell was part of SNL for nine years and was let go in 2006 during the semi-purge of the cast. This past season he had a recurring role as Dr. Leo Spaceman on the NBC comedy 30 Rock, where he shared the screen with former SNL buddies Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan.

Brooke Burns' friend saved her life

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 20th 2005 12:47PM
brooke burnsBrooke Burns is fortunate. Very fortunate. And she knows it. The former Baywatch star broke her neck when she dove into a pool last month, knocking her head on a surfboard. If it hadn't been for a friend, she probably would have died. Her friend was a paramedic firefighter, who, Brooke says, "wrapped a wet towel around my neck and basically immobilized me and floated me in the pool until paramedics came." Burns spoke to Access Hollywood last night about the accident. She revealed that she broke her neck "from chin to chest" when she dove into that pool. She also said that the accident has brought her closer to her ex-husband, Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), who has been at her side since she arrived at the hospital on November 10th. Brooke is on the mend and will continue with her plans to co-star in the WB series Pepper Dennis with Rebecca Romijn, starting in January. In the meantime, she's stylin' in her personalized neck brace.
