Hall and Oates

Jimmy Fallon Celebrates His First Anniversary Tonight

Jimmy FallonWhen it was announced that Jimmy Fallon was taking over for Conan O'Brien on NBC's 'Late Night,' a lot of people cringed. Would he do a good job? Could he stop mumbling and getting all fidgety? The answer to the first question is yes, and the answer to the second question is not really but it's actually OK. He's doing some funny regular bits ("Real Housewives of Late Night," "Wheel of Carpet Samples," the notes he writes on Friday nights), though I can do without "Lick It For Ten."

Tonight he celebrates his first anniversary, and his guests will be Robert Pattinson (I'm sure they'll talk about this regular segment), '30 Rock's' Judah Friedlander, and chef Mario Batali. Note: Hall & Oates were supposed to perform on the show tonight, but they had to cancel due to the sudden death of their bassist T-Bone Wolk. Wolk was also the bassist for 'Saturday Night Live' over the years. Mario Batali will take their place, though I doubt he will be playing "Kiss On My List."

Psych does Private Eyes like Hall and Oates

psych_james_brolin_westThey're at it again! This time instead of Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney doing "Ebony and Ivory," Shawn and Gus are re-creating Hall and Oates doing "Private Eyes." And this time, the rest of the cast are included as private eyes, too.

The Psych team is nothing if not original when it comes to their promotions. The only thing missing in this one is a pineapple.

Before taking a look at the video, just a reminder that Psych is coming back on Wednesday, January 27 at 10 p.m.

Mike Henry and Daryl Hall on a Cleveland Show Thanksgiving

The Cleveland Show ThanksgivingA year ago, before there was a Cleveland Show, when the Family Guy spinoff was still just a possibility, the show's first guest stars, Daryl Hall and John Oates, were brought aboard. They'll finally make their debut, playing an angel and a devil, respectively, on Cleveland Brown's shoulder on the Thanksgiving episode which airs Sunday at 8:30PM on Fox.

According to show co-creator, producer, and voice of Cleveland Mike Henry, the appearance came out of a trip to Las Vegas where a casting director arranged for Henry to meet the guys backstage after a show. When they showed interest, that was that. "We wrote the part and sent it on over," says Henry, speaking at a conference call with media.

"You planted the seed a year ago saying, hey, would you like to be on the show that's not on TV yet?" says Hall.

Whatever big decision Cleveland is making in the episode, Henry is a bit cagey. "Maybe Auntie Mamma has got a penis," says Henry. "Let's just say that. There. I've given it away."

John Oates teams up with his mustache to battle evil (or something)

I had forgotten about J-Stache. It's been several months since we first heard about it. But now FunnyorDie.com has the trailer for the web show. It's about Hall & Oates' John Oates and his mustache (yes, you heard me right). They team up to battle evil and score chicks. It's all done like a 70s cartoon. I think the part that had me laughing out loud in this trailer below is when Geraldo Rivera shows up.

(slightly NSFW, but funny.)

Dancing with the Stars: Week 3 results

Dancing with the Stars: Week 3 ResultsSteve Wozniak dodges yet another bullet. Not only did Steve not have to battle for his life, he was called early to the surprise of Karina. Steve Wozniak has fans. Lots of fans. I remember Kathy Griffin mentioning he had "Mac Enthusiasts" in her last comedy CD, but I guess they were actually as fanatic as she joked about. He must be getting the most votes to overcompensate a 10.

I smirked a little watching the show. I'm not sure why, but there was a glitch at one point when Samantha was interviewing Melissa. I was almost happy that I didn't have to hear her voice. Anyhoo, after seeing Steve safe, the bottom two was obvious. More information after the jump.

Sweeps stunts are tame in February

mandy moore zach braffNovember sweeps stunts brought us stormtroopers on The Apprentice, a live debate on The West Wing, a dead chick on Lost and Medium in 3-D. Why are February ratings so tame? One word: Olympics.

NBC is expected to kick some television tail when it covers the Olympics every single night from February 10-26. Going into this month, the networks are touting some pretty uninteresting guest stars on the shows that need a boost. And that's about it. Oh, there is also going to be some sh*t going down on The O.C., but you don't want the spoilers, do you?

Here are some highlights for February sweeps, which began yesterday and run through March 1:
