He even addressed how he's become such a figure of fun for late night TV hosts.
Saying "it's not news flash to me that I'm overweight," Christie said making jokes about his girth is "fair game" for late night TV hosts, but only if their jokes about it are good.
According to Bravo, the live tour will give fans "the chance to get up-close and personal with their favorite cast members." Look for the ladies to discuss their biggest televised moments and fights, reveal cast secrets and interact with the audience in a question and answer format." The live tour, like many fan conventions, will feature various packages to give fans access to the Bravolebrities. The Red Carpet Package will give fans access to a pre-show cocktail party, hosed by 'The Real Housewives,' walk a red carpet, receive a tour laminate and premium seating.
Cast members from 'New York,' 'New Jersey,' 'Orange County,' 'Atlanta' and even 'Miami' are scheduled to appear. Good news for 'Real Housewives of Miami' fans. See a full list of scheduled attendees below.
It is a little surprising they didn't nail the 'Jersey Shore' cast earlier, but they seem to be making up for lost time.
'Idol' wannabes swarmed the Izod Center in East Rutherford hoping to sing for the producers of the show, different from past years when the auditions held the chance of meeting TV judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and some other musical chairs cast of characters.
Rejected singers told SomethingPitchy that mostly tweens were making it to the next round due in large part to 'Idol' lowering its age minimum to 15 this season. Season 10 just might end up being made up entirely of Bieber-a-likes. (Dear god, no.)
According to Broadcasting & Cable, 'Summah,' which is being described as an unofficial spinoff of MTV's runaway hit, 'Jersey Shore,' is in the "very early stages of development" at TruTV, according to a network spokesperson.
Filming will be set on Cape Cod, though no word on when the series will actually hit the airwaves.
Doron Ofir Casting, the company behind 'Shore,' is casting the show. (For a taste of who might wind up on the show, check out its casting website.)
And speaking of 'Jersey Shore,' MTV recently announced that the show, which will be filming in Miami and Jersey, will return for a second season on Jul. 29.
A casting notice was also put up for additions to the cast. It's sort of like the second season of 'The Transformers' cartoon in which a bunch of new robots were added to the cast in an effort to sell more action figures.
In this case, the casting notice is likely just in case the existing cast decides to move on to bigger and better projects, like 'Celebrity Apprentice' or the next generation of 'Fear Factor.'
O'Loughlin and Caan are the same age. That would mean that they'll be more like partners. Like Sam and Callen on 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' which is reminiscent of 'Starsky and Hutch.'
Well, there's nothing wrong with that, but it's not exactly the original, is it? It's a new version of 'Hawaii Five-O' and, apparently, that's the point. Like the updated 'Star Trek' movie, which coincidentally, was written by the same guys, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who are doing the pilot.
So while this show will focus on an elite branch of the Hawaii State Police with McGarrett and Danno, it's not the same old CBS franchise.
As of 12:01 on New Year's Day, three million TV subscribers in suburban New York, New Jersey and Connecticut were shocked that Food Network and DIY and HGTV and all the Scripps networks were off Cablevision.
I don't know how the corporate folks feel about this kind of negotiation, but as a TV viewer I think it sucks. I used to live in that market and if I was expecting to watch Food Network, I would expect to see it.
Perhaps there is such a thing as bad publicity. New Jersey lawmakers are looking to cancel the MTV reality series Jersey Shore via a boycott of its advertisers. Mind you, MTV has been dealing with controversy since its inception (as has Jersey Shore), so this move is unlikely to cancel the series. If anything, given the anti-establishment vibe of the channel, it may even make it more popular. MTV should send the lawmakers a gift basket.
While I'm no fan of the show, it shouldn't be canceled in this manner. One can only hope that poor ratings contribute to its demise (although that's not likely at this stage).
This sort of end would only give those that support it more fuel for the fire. MTV might be facing less criticism if they had a more ethnically diverse cast for the show. On the other hand, the network might be seeking the criticism out like the attention-whore that it is in an effort to reinforce its reputation.
First it was Housewives. Then it was Cake Boss, where Buddy Valastro and his crew scream and gesture so much it's a wonder how their cakes don't collapse in the oven. Even TLC's relatively gentle Masters of Reception seemed to highlight the more "Jersey" aspects of my home state.
Now we have Jersey Shore, an MTV reality series premiering December 3. It documents goings on last summer in a shore house with the "hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos," according to this particularly annoying promo:
That's right; you didn't read it wrong. Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita, the two who were having babies in season one of the show, will appear as themselves on the NBC medical drama, according to the Ausiello Files.
He never officially confirmed just what the "crazy" thing would be, but I wonder if this is it. Smith, the Fox News Channel's equivalent of Edward R. Murrow, issued an official apology for his network's (and I'm actually quoting) "lack of balance."
The "lack of balance" in question referred to Fox correspondent Shannon Bream, who conducted an interview with Republican candidate for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but failed to nail down his Democratic opposition Jon Corzine. Smith said he didn't know the candidate wasn't interviewed and that "If I had control, it wouldn't have happened." Quick, someone check The Weather Channel for Hell's temperature and five-day forecast!
She was able to intervene in the dispute but at the same time make it clear that she didn't even know what it was about and didn't want Conan to ever bother her again.
There will be no reprieve from the governor, no last minute miracle save. No, the end is approaching and Guiding Light will stop filming the week of August 3. The CBS soap opera will air its last show on September 18, 2009, and the 72-year-long run of America's most enduring daytime drama will officially wrap.
Fans have been hoping that somehow, someway Guiding Light would find a new home, but neither CBS nor Procter and Gamble have been able to save the show. Soapcentral.com has reported that efforts have been made to no avail. "We have not been able to secure an outlet to carry the show moving forward. We are extremely disappointed with this outcome, but we are confident we have exhausted every possible option," said TeleNext Media SVP Brian T. Cahill.
