What You Missed Last Night: Owen Benjamin writes your jingle

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 20th 2009 4:00PM
I usually have video from one of the late night shows for What You Missed Last Night, but most of the late night shows are in repeats this week. Instead, here's Owen Benjamin on last night's Jay Leno Show, taking a walk around the city and writing jingles for various businesses he finds, including a vacuum/sewing machine store, a gift shop/casket store (?), a cupcake place, and a guy with a mustache.

Someone should write a jingle for TV Squad.

Reality show casting calls

by Paul Goebel, posted Jun 19th 2008 8:21PM

casting callsA day hasn't gone by where we haven't received some sort of tip or email asking us, the TV Squad, how to get on [insert reality show here]. Unfortunately no, Simon Cowell does not work for us, and Donald Trump isn't my BFF, so we really can't help all that much.

The folks at RealityWanted.com often send us a list of new and existing reality shows that are looking for new, er, talent, and they've given us permission to make mention of them here. We'll try to make this a regular feature as often as we get a new list.

This time we have Jingles, The Moment of Truth and other new shows.

Passwords, swingers and dogs mark CBS' summer schedule

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 15th 2008 3:42PM

CBS' schedule is heavy on reality, light on scripted materialLike many of its network companions, CBS is using the lazy days of summer to roll out a schedule light on original scripted fare and heavy on unscripted programming. Unlike many of its network companions, CBS is going a different route with some of its original material.

Out of the two original dramas Swingtown is probably the one readers of TV Squad will remember as it was introduced to us during the network's upfronts last year. The show will cover the social and sexual revolutions of the 1970s -- a time when gas was in short supply, inflation was skyrocketing, and the world was in political upheaval. You know, nothing like it is now in the 2000s. The other scripted show will be Flashpoint. This cop drama will follow the adventures of SRU, a task force that is sent out to diffuse emergency situations.

Jingles reality show coming to CBS - VIDEO

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 14th 2008 1:58PM
Mark BurnettWell, here's something about reality TV that didn't make me gag. Survivor mega-producer Mark Burnett has a new unscripted project, greenlighted by CBS, called Jingles. It's a competition show in which contestants have to create tunes for products, commercial jingles. No mud wrestling, no unlocking keys to puzzle pieces the size of boulders, no eating slugs wrapped in wild boar bacon. This time it's all about catchy melodies, clever hooks and lyrics that incorporate product info whether the products an erectile dysfunction pill or a new luxury car.

Charlie Sheen sued

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 28th 2006 3:50PM
Two and a Half MenWow, this isn't a good week for Charlie Sheen.

First he's going through the divorce nastiness with wife Denise Richards, and now a woman is suing him, claiming that the character Sheen plays on Two and a Half Men is based on her.

Not really sure how you sue an actor for a character created by someone else, but whatever.
