Kids' Choice Chooses Kevin James as Host

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 16th 2010 10:30AM
Kids have notoriously strange taste. Some kids, for instance, enjoy peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. Barney is a perennial favorite. And few things will gets kids as excited as a chance to play with a cardboard box. Now you can add another choice to the list: Kevin James.

Yes, according to PEOPLE, the rotund comedian will be hosting Nickelodeon's 23rd Annual Kids' Choice Awards, which is set to air on Mar. 27. James, who as host will be in line for the traditional full body slime regimen, was effusive about the honor, stating "hosting the Kids' Choice Awards completes me."

Jimmy Kimmel Makes Nick Jonas Uncomfortable on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 4th 2010 2:30PM
Jimmy Kimmel made Nick Jonas noticeably uncomfortable during an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC), joking that his solo album spells an inevitable breakup of the Jonas Brothers, and questioning the state of Kevin Jonas' virginity now that he's married long-time girlfriend Danielle Deleasa.

Jonas said that his solo album, 'Who I Am,' came about because he'd written a batch of songs that didn't fit stylistically with the Jonas Brothers.

Watch the video after the jump.

Joe Jonas Could Be Young Tommy on 'Brothers and Sisters'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 3rd 2010 11:11AM
getty_jonas_abcThere's going to be an upcoming episode -- a two-parter -- on 'Brothers and Sisters' that will boldly go somewhere it hasn't gone before (at least not in any detail). And when they do, we may be seeing teen heart throb Joe Jonas on 'Brothers and Sisters' as Tommy Walker. That's the Balthazar Getty role.

ABC hasn't confirmed the Jonas casting, but it would make sense. Look at how much alike they are? But there's still a question about acting. Is Joe Jonas able to make us believe that he's a young Tommy Walker?

Disney Gives 'JONAS' a Second Season

by Chris Jordan, posted Nov 9th 2009 1:49PM
JONASThe Disney Channel has given 'JONAS' stars Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas (aka the Jonas Brothers) a promise ring for another season.

Work on the show's second season will begin in February, reports the Hollywood Reporter, with a premiere date planned for mid-2010.

Also upcoming is the JoBros' short-form reality series, 'Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream,' premiering early next year.

The renewal order comes after a season slightly hit-or-miss ratings. Despite debuting with 4 million viewers, 'JONAS' was quickly moved to Sundays after its second episode was trounced by an 'iCarly' special on Nickelodeon (d'oh). 'JONAS' has since averaged 3.4 million viewers.

Is South Park too focused on reality TV?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 4th 2009 7:29PM

Even though the show has been on forever, I still enjoy my weekly dose of the new South Parks. But lately, they seem to be running out of targets or have narrowed their focus too much on one particular evil: reality television.

The season opener featured a rather nasty swipe at Disney's Jonas Brothers. The recent "Dead Celebrities" chortle-fest took a much needed pot shot at Ghost Hunters, aka, "the gayest f#*$ing show on television." And last week launched an all out attack on Discovery's Whale Wars and Deadliest Catch, particularly against Whale Wars star Paul Watson.

The show has always been a bitch to write and making every episode a satirical masterpiece is impossible without suffering a full-on breakdown. But should the show lay off reality TV and take some bolder shots at reality, which as we all know are two completely different things?

Where did MTV's Popzilla come from, and why do I love it?

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 1st 2009 4:00PM
Popzilla's Jonas BrothersI can admit that I'm no longer the hip young kid that I quite honestly never was. So it didn't surprise me that MTV was able to launch a new show and I was completely unaware of it. But, I've talked to younger friends who do watch MTV, and they don't remember any promotion for Popzilla either.

I found it purely by accident, and when it popped onto my screen, I was looking at something that looked like a mix of old Walt Disney animation and something the folks at Jib-Jab would have come up with. Utilizing photographs for the heads of celebrities, exaggerated slightly for comic effect, and little white Disney gloves, the show skewers celebrities and pop culture in short skits like Robot Chicken, and it's far funnier than it has any right to be.

Kelly Clarkson and Joe Jonas to guest judge American Idol

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 21st 2009 8:36AM
Kelly ClarksonThe rotating guest judge slots in the wake of Paula Abdul's departure continue. The latest celebrities guest judging American Idol are Kelly Clarkson and Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. I'm starting to see an upside for the show post-Paula.

With ratings on the decline the past couple of years, it's also been observed that the median age for the show had been getting older as well. As we all know, old people don't exist to advertisers, so youth is where it's at. Kelly Clarkson is a great choice to bring in a hip and young crowd, and she's a great story for the show. Here's their first crowned champion coming back to offer sage advice and wisdom ... or at least a lot of "Y'all!"

Joe Jonas is sure to bring legions of screaming pre-pubescent girls to the screen. And nobody obsesses over stars like pre-pubescent girls. I'd love to see the permanent slot filled by an artist as current and relevant as these two. Maybe Amy Winehouse is available; it'd be like Paula never left!

JONAS in iCarly witness relocation while Hannah and Sonny get renewals

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 2nd 2009 6:07PM
Hannah MontanaLooks like the Disney Channel underestimated the power of Nickelodeon's iCarly. Their attempts to squash the possible threat to their Hannah Montana empire were squashed, however, when a special iCarly smashed the second episode of JONAS, the new star vehicle for the Jonas Brothers. So to make themselves feel better, and despite what Miley Cyrus may have been saying, the show will go on. Disney has picked up Hannah Montana for a fourth season, as well as Demi Lovato's Sonny With a Chance for a second.

As for JONAS, it's already been yanked from Saturdays where, despite an impressive debut, it got slammed in its second outing by iCarly. So now, it's joining the Disney Sunday lineup, where it can nestle snugly behind Hannah Montana and Sonny With a Chance. This does create a powerhouse Sunday night for the network, while protecting the two newer shows with the power of Miley Cyrus.

South Park 1, Jonas Brothers 0 - VIDEOS

The Jonas Brothers on South Park

South Park
kicked off their 13th season (dear God, did I just say 13th? I couldn't feel older right now if I had to get my bifocals to read the instructions on a box of Depends) the way the show's longtime fans expect them to kick off every season: by kicking the latest flavor of the month, flash in the pan whatever square in the bean bag.

Sometimes their target is a woman, of course, and that's when they do whatever women call it when they get so mad, they physically want to fight each other. I believe the word is "hot as #*$(ing hell."

I cheated and looked it up on Wikipedia. Sorry.

Jonas Brothers purify South Park, and a Season twelve DVD preview - VIDEO

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 9th 2009 7:05PM
The South Park-ized Jonas BrothersSouth Park hasn't been too kind to musicians over their twelve seasons on Comedy Central. You may remember the origins of Bono were less than flattering (seem the U2 singer and Mr. Hanky have something in common). Last season, Britney Spears wound up horribly disfigured. And Richard Stamos (brother of John) never hit that high "F."

When the thirteenth season kicks off Wednesday (March 11, 10 PM), musicians will apparently have their revenge. Kenny takes his girlfriend to a Jonas Brothers concert in an effort to get lucky, but has his plans foiled when the band gives them "purity" rings. Can't wait to see what Matt and Trey have in store for the ubiquitous heart pre-teen heart throbs - I'm hoping it will warm the hearts of any parent you had to take their kids to that 3-D movie.

Saturday Night Live: Alec Baldwin/The Jonas Brothers - VIDEOS

Jonas Brothers
(S34E16) It was pretty obvious there was going to be at least two sketches with the Jonas Brothers. I called it! I mean, no one apart from the people in my apartment know I called it, but that doesn't change the facts or my sad sense of accomplishment. I had to tune out once they started singing (sorry, 15 year-old girls), but their skits were all right. Alec Baldwin did a fine job of hosting as well, though there weren't any particularly striking sketches. I suppose after doing something like "Schwetty Balls", just about everything else will pale in comparison.

An item for those who haven't had their fill of Miley or the Jo Bros

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 19th 2009 11:03AM

Haven't had enough of the Jo Bros. Well, you'll have a chance to see more of them Monday night.Admit it ... you're obsessed with the Jonas Brothers (known in the tween world as the Jo Bros) and Miley Cyrus (known in the tween world as -- Miley Cyrus). You wake up in Hannah Montana pajamas, you eat your cereal with your Miley Cyrus spoon, and you make sure you have safe sex with your Jo Bros' IUD. But, you need more to satisfy your craving for Disneyfied bubblegum rock and pop. Thing is, you fear that you have exhausted all of your resources.

Have some faith, slightly creepy one. Fact of the matter is the Disney Channel is watching your back. Starting at 5:30 pm tonight, the network will be premiering the Jonas Brothers' newest video, as well as Miley's first video from her new Hannah Montana movie. If that weren't enough to sustain you, Disney will be broadcasting the Kids Inaugural: We Are the Future concert, which will feature not only the Jo Bros and Miley, but Demi Lovato and Bow Wow (no longer 'Little').

See? Everything will be okay. Now you can get dressed in your High School Musical pants suit and head out to your job as CEO of a multi-billion dollar company.

Disney Channel gets top marks across multiple media

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 6th 2009 8:30AM

Thanks to people like Miley Cyrus, Disney Channel ranks number one for 2008I'm just full of Disney news (or full of something) this week, aren't I? On Monday I asked the question of what happened to the Playhouse Disney schedule. This time around I'm going to talk about the entire Disney Channel. Not just the cable network, but the website as well. For both are tops in their respective outlets.

Well, tops when it comes to kids programming -- an area of entertainment that continues to grow on a daily basis. For 2008, Disney Channel was top of the heap in a number of areas. Not only was primetime programming number one for viewers ages 6-14, but the premiere of the network's newest musical, Camp Rock (which introduced us to Demi Lovato), became cable's top entertainment broadcast of the year. Cable's top animated debut also went to Disney Channel with the premiere of Phineas and Ferb.
