CheatersJust when thought you had already heard the whole world's take on the Tiger Woods saga, out comes the last person you want to see on a date.

Professional soul patch wearer and Cheaters host Joey Greco talked to the Los Angeles Times about Woods' philandering ways.

He describes his take on the reaction, the coverage and even Tiger's handling of the event. He even likens it to David Letterman's recent scandal and says that Letterman handled his public reaction to the event much better and Tiger should have done the same. So does he mean that Tiger Woods also should have released his own Top Ten list?

Hi I'm Keith Olbermann, welcome to Jackass

by Danny Gallagher, posted Aug 25th 2009 1:34PM
The Los Angeles Times made a rather humorous error in their TV listings and some, depending on what they personally think of MSNBC talking head Keith Olbermann, may not have noticed the difference.

Their TV listings for Thursday listed Jackass in the time slot where Countdown with Keith Olbermann should have been. The paper issued a correction the following day, disappointing thousands of easily hammered frat boys (including me) who thought MTV's nightly cavalcade of nut shots and poo fights had returned to television on another network.

Olbermann was OK with the mistake until one of the paper's bloggers used it as a political parry against him and his network. That launched the MSNBC host into a personal tirade against the blogger and anything else that happened to saunter into the path of Olbermann's angry spittle cannon.

Olbermann, O'Reilly told to end personal feud, which just creates another feud

Keith Olbermann hiding behind Bill O'Reilly's giant puppet headIt seems the never-ending feud between Keith Olbermann and Bill O'Reilly has become a kangaroo boxing match. The worst thing you can do is get in the middle of it.

That's exactly what the parent owners of Fox News and MSNBC tried to do when they arranged a "cease-fire" between them and their top-tier shows' "lieutenants."

The cease-fire, however, didn't last long. It's another case of the ol' Rufus T. Firefly conundrum for peace. Either side might be willing to do whatever it takes to end this war, but they've already paid two months' rent on the battlefield.

Why the Joan Rivers Roast should be tighter and funnier than her current facelift

Joan RiversThe traditional comedy roast has been hijacked by the cable networks and reproduced with more disappointing results than a sperm bank run by General Motors.

Comedy Central has done the best job for the most part while others like A&E's extremely mismanaged Gene Simmons Roast made for lower quality television are as horrific as those painfully dated Dean Martin's Roasts that are sold on infomercials in the wee small hours of the morning.

The secret to doing a good roast isn't really that much of a secret: hire people who are actually paid to be funny. That's why the Roast of Joan Rivers could be the best one yet.

Eastbound & Down is headed down south, for now

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 19th 2009 3:03PM
It looks like even the magic formula that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay created to become comedy movie mavericks doesn't work on the aptly named "idiot box."

HBO's new Eastbound & Down bombed in its premiere episode and lost nearly 40 percent of the lead-in audience from Flight of the Conchords. It also only scored a measly .3 in the ratings, which is dangerously close to "HelloLarrydom."

But fear not, Ferrell freaks. This is HBO, the network that dared to mess with convention, give fledgling shows time to grow and kept Arli$$ on the air for six whole seasons.

24 producer responds to criticism

by Meredith O'Brien, posted May 3rd 2007 2:41PM

Jack Bauer on 24Responding to criticism in a recent Los Angeles Times piece that this season's 24 is lackluster and that viewers are tuning out, a co-executive producer of the show said failing to chart out story lines and sending several characters to sleep with the fishes are largely to blame for this predicament.

"You try to keep things interesting, find new ways to tell the story, and unfortunately we wound up repeating ourselves somewhat," David Fury, co-executive producer told TV Week. "I still would claim that regardless of the quality drop-off that people are saying, the show's still very strong. It's still one of the best things on television."

Emmy selections baffle you? Watch the submitted episodes to make your own decisions

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 13th 2006 12:42PM

Emmy AwardEmmy nominations were a bit baffling this year. Even though there was a new balloting procedure to nominate the best of television, some of the decisions still left many of us scratching our heads. For example, why was Geena Davis from the now canceled Commander in Chief nominated for best actress in a drama series, or, why was Lost and Desperate Housewives were completely left off of the ballot? Well, thanks to a savvy Internet patron and his use of YouTube you can now see the episodes the Emmy nominating committee viewed to determine their choices.
