America's Got Talent: Audition show 10

Susan Boyle - America's Got Talent
(S04E10) "We've saved the best for last." - Nick about this being the last audition episode

The last America's Got Talent audition episode not only featured loads of good performances -- sadly, most shown in a quick montage -- but also an interview with Britain's Got Talent's Susan Boyle. The "Susan Boyle - Daring to Dream" interview with Meredith Vieira depicted well Susan's path to fame and her life struggles, but I would have preferred to have seen Boyle perform live on the show during one of the performance episodes in August. Then the contestants could have interacted with someone who went very far in the competition and be inspired by her story, as well as show that everyday people who truly have talent can become stars.

Before we get to my two cents about tonight's performances, I wanted to point out that contestant Shaunie, who performed a unique singing number in last night's episode, dropped by the comments section in my review of Audition show 9 to share the link to his YouTube channel so you can watch more of his talent.

America's Got Talent: Audition show 9

America's Got Talent

(S04E09) "MySpace is delivering the weird, the wacky, the wonderful." - The Hoff

So tonight we were treated with a round of MySpace auditions. As was the case last season, the MySpace episode doesn't bring anything special to the show, since the producers basically choose bad and good acts from performers who post videos of themselves performing on MySpace. Isn't the goal of the MySpace episode -- well, episodes this year since tomorrow is also a MySpace one -- to show that talent can be discovered on the web? Therefore, producers should only select acts that have potential based on their MySpace page. No?

In any case, to learn more about the MySpace episodes, as well as be reminded of last year's America's Got Talent MySpace episode, go to the America's Got Talent MySpace page. So let's review what MySpace gave us tonight, shall we?

The Big Bang Theory: The Work Song Nanocluster

by Kona Gallagher, posted Mar 17th 2009 12:12AM
Penny and sheldon(S02E18) As much as I love Leonard, tonight's episode of The Big Bang Theory only further proves that Penny and Sheldon are meant to be. Maybe not in a romantic sense (I still have a hard time picturing Sheldon in a relationship with any woman), but in a platonic life mate sense.

Proving that there is, in fact, a market in everything, Penny manages to start selling her Penny Blossoms, which are really hideous flower barrettes. This obviously means that the guys are going to get involved and geek it up, which they do in a splendid fashion that somehow involves charcoal.

I also learned an important tip: If you're looking to sell something to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered market, design your website like a 13-year-old girl's MySpace page. They are apparently attracted to the same graphic design sensibility -- which Leonard apparently possesses.

David Hasselhoff has created his own Space

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 19th 2008 4:21PM
The HoffHave you thought about creating a MySpace page but thought it was too general and want to make something that's a little more focused, something that celebrates something you're really interested in? You might want to join HoffSpace.

It's the new social network from David Hasselhoff. The Baywatch/Knight Rider/America's Got Talent star has set up a network on his site where fans from around the world can network with each other. Well, I don't think he actually set it up. I doubt he's in front of his computer at midnight doing HTML and making sure the servers are up, but it's on his site (if you're wondering, hoffspace.com is already taken by someone else).

America's Got Talent(S03E07) "Dreams come true on America's Got Talent" - The Hoff

Dreams not only come true on AGT but they are also crushed (and, let's face it, it's a good thing that some dreams are crushed on the show because some acts are just plain wrong). This week, MySpace devotees faced off against the judges and the crowd in the hope that their dreams would come true. Does MySpace have talent? Let's review the final auditions of the season.

The Kroffts are on MySpace

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 10th 2008 3:22PM
Sid and Marty KrofftIt looks like the Krofft brothers Sid and Marty will soon be on MySpace. The 70's icons will soon be putting their programming on MySpaceTV.

This will include their classic shows such as H.R. Pufnstuf, The Bugaloos and Land of the Lost and will be exclusively shown on the social-networking platform. V.P. of Marketing at MySpace Josh Brooks sees the collaboration as an example of how the site will mine pop-culture nostalgia to build audiences.

The license includes full episodes as well as condensed three to five minute versions (called "Kwikies") and pre-taped messages from the Kroffts themselves. The Krofft branded channel can be found at myspace.com/Krofft.

I remember watching the Krofft shows as a kiddie. Why are condensed versions of the shows necessary for this channel? Are they really that bad when watched at normal length as an adult? Perhaps nobody has time to watch a full episode anymore. Shows like Electra Woman and Dyna Girl can only be appreciated when watched at full length.

As if Seth McFarlane didn't have enough to do...

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 9th 2008 11:22AM
Seth McFarlaneAlong with running three shows on Fox (Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show), Seth McFarlane is also getting into online content development. Even worse, he's doing it for a Fox competitor.

McFarlane will be developing fifty two-minute animated vignettes for Seth McFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy which will be distributed via Google's AdSense network (a competitor for Fox's Myspace).

The article goes into the corporate issues behind this strange move and asks a few good questions: why didn't Fox get a first-look offer at this idea? If they did, why did they pass on it? It seems inexpensive enough to produce and given the popularity of the creator, it seems a no-brainer.

90210 alum makes deal with MySpace

by Kristin Sample, posted May 17th 2008 9:02AM
Ian Ziering And 90210 makes the news again this week! But I don't mind because I can never get enough Bevelry Hills, 90210 (or Bev as I affectionately call it). Ian Ziering will be developing webisodes with social-networking titan MySpace. These web shorts will be based on Man Vs. Monday, a film Ziering directed, produced and even starred in two years ago. The webisodes will be about an office slacker who has trouble getting through his Mondays after his crazy weekends.

Why the choice to develop the shows with MySpace? "In the entertainment industry there remains one constant: change. I believe the digital world presents tremendous opportunities for the producers who understand it, and I am launching a digital production company, iMan Productions, to take advantage of this opportunity," Ziering told a press conference. Is he on to something here?

Ziering will also star opposite Heather Graham and Jerry O'Connell in the comedy Baby on Board to be released later this year.

Thirtysomething co-creator explains reasons for leaving TV

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Nov 8th 2007 2:02PM
thirtysomethingMarshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick are responsible for creating some of my favorite TV shows: thirtysomething, My So-Called Life, and Once and Again. They've influenced my writing and even my desire to write for TV probably more than anyone else in Hollywood. They've been absent from the TV landscape for a couple of years, and I've definitely missed them.

Luckily, Herskovitz and Zwick are back with a brand new series, called quarterlife. The series, however, will not currently be available on ABC or any other network. Herskovitz and Zwick are bringing this new series to life on the web. And in a recent L.A. Times item, Herskovitz explains why they've left traditional television behind.

Herskovitz believes "the business of television has become an exclusive club, closed to new members," which has some producers "turning to the internet to have a voice."

Sony minisodes (mini-episodes) get wider distribution

by Brad Linder, posted Oct 20th 2007 8:36AM
Remember Sony's Minisode Network? Basically Sony is sitting on a huge library of television episodes that don't see much airtime anymore. So the company decided to slice up classic TV shows like Charlie's Angels, and T.J. Hooker and create 5 minute "minisodes."

The interesting thing is that the cliff notes versions of these shows work surprisingly well, if you don't care about things like plot, character development, and dialog.

The minisodes were originally available online at MySpace. Now Sony is making the mini-shows available on Crackle, AOL, and Joost, as well as MySpace. Sony is also bringing more shows out of the vault including Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie and The Jeffersons.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Mac is a Serial Killer

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 18th 2007 11:01PM
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Mac is a Serial Killer(S03E10) Most fans of It's Always Sunny have probably seen this episode already, since it was the one that was on the show's MySpace site from early summer until a few weeks ago. After watching it again, I can see why the boys decided to share this episode early: not only is it representative of exactly what people love about the show, but everyone got a meaty story to play. In other words, it's the best episode of the season so far.

I mean, how can you not like an episode that involves chain saws, squeaky clown shoes, pimps that love Fraggle Rock, tranny bulges, and severed heads in a fridge?

NYTVF: Digital Frontiers in the Advertising Markeplace

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Sep 11th 2007 8:38AM
NYTVF Advertising Panel DiscussionI entered the NYTVF panel discussion about advertising with some trepidation. After all, I love TV, but I hate commercials. In fact, I'm in love with my DVR because it allows me to fast forward through all that garbage. And I really love watching my shows on DVD because I don't have to worry about about commercials at all.

However, I also realize that much of my beloved television programming (and now) internet content wouldn't be possible without the support of its sponsors. Advertising is an unfortunate necessary evil. For bloggers it means the difference between getting paid (like here at TV Squad) or diligently toiling away without any compensation with the unselfish commitment of a Harry Potter house elf.

Hulu is NBC and News Corp's answer to YouTube

by Brad Linder, posted Aug 29th 2007 4:01PM
huluNBC and News Corp have announced a name for their YouTube competitor. Hulu doesn't seem to stand for much of anything, but it's "short, easy to spell, easy to pronounce, and rhymes with itself."

Since hulu is positioned as an alternative to YouTube, I suppose they're tied with YouTube for syllables, and have a slight edge in the number of letters. As for content, right now, there's nothing. Hulu is accepting e-mail addresses from anyone interested in signing up for a private beta, which will launch in October.

Esai Morales moving from New York to Jericho

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 24th 2007 7:31PM

Esai Morales will appear on Jericho for most of its seven episode runGet ready for a new face or two when Jericho (a.k.a -- The Little Show That Could) returns to the CBS primetime schedule early next year. One of those faces will be Esai Morales'.

The former NYPD Blue and Vanished star will appear in a recurring role for six of the seven episodes that have been ordered for the new season. Hmm, in the real world that would seem like a regular rather than occurring role. Semantics aside, Morales will play Colonel Hoffman, a career military officer and Iraq War veteran who has not seen or heard from his wife since the day of the attacks.
