PBS to Air No-Holds Barred Steve Jobs Documentary: 'One Last Thing'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 27th 2011 6:15AM
PBS has announced that it will air a new, "unflinching" documentary about the late Appple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died three weeks ago. 'Steve Jobs -- One Last Thing' will air Wednesday, Nov. 2 as part of a night devoted to science and technology exploration.

In what's sure to stoke controversy in some quarters, PBS says 'One Last Thing' takes "an unflinching look at Jobs's difficult, controlling disposition, and offers unique insights into what made him tick. While there has been near-universal agreement that Steve Jobs was a great innovator in business and technology, ONE LAST THING looks into why he was so great. What were the influences that shaped his character? What drove him from such humble beginnings to the heights of success?"

The documentary features interviews with Apple insiders Steve Wozniak, Ronald Wayne and Dean Hovey, as well as Bill Fernandez, who introduced Jobs and Wozniak in Sunnyvale, where the three hung out in his father's garage and tinkered with electronics.

Dancing with the Stars: Performance 3 Results

Tom DeLay and Cheryl Burke get a good joke from Tom Bergeron
(S09E07) With the return of Len Goodman, a thirteen-point difference separated all the contestants on Dancing with the Stars. Even with two bum feet, Tom DeLay managed to beat Michael Irwin's score. As the credits roll, I think the opening sequence needs to take a hint from Survivor and make edited versions where eliminated contestants are removed from the opening every week.

The big drama tonight was whether or not there would be a single elimination or a double. We get a recap of last night: kissing, Paula Abdul, and dancing. The judges made a very interesting choice for an encore.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 4 Results

Dancing with the Stars - Week 4 Results(S08E07) – "I'm not scared of the double elimination or rattlesnakes" – Ty

I was happy aboutone thing last night that I forgot to mention: all the music fit. I dreaded that this week would have more obscene tango music (Star Wars Tango?) and six performances of the Lindy Hop set to Christina Aguilera's "Candyman," but the classics fit. Speaking of no bad music, the guest performers would have been given a harsh critique by Simon Cowell if they were on American Idol.

There was no dance-off, which is a shame because I'd love to have seen what Holly's performance would look like without the mistakes. The clip recap did reveal how badly Holly slipped off of the chair. Since it was close up last night, we only got to see her face go "oops." She basically fell off the chair. More analysis after the jump.

Dancing With the Stars: Week 4

Dancing With the Stars - Week 4(S08E06) "The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth" – The Woz

Tonight was the breakout night where the leaders all blasted past everyone else. Three of the last week's top four contestants in the front all received 10's. I'm a little nervous for Ty and Chuck now, and although I like both of them, if the four in the front progress the way they are, then the rest of the pack will slowly be eliminated.

This week introduces new dances in hopes that they will reinvigorate the competition and take people out of their comfort zones. The double elimination is looming and the contestants tried their best to be safe. We start the night with another trip on the stairs with Karina, and that isn't the only thing that proves this show is live. Len accidentally uses the term "Jitterbug" instead of "Lindy Hop," but quickly recovers. Also, throughout the whole show, Samantha goes through puberty. More analysis after the break.

Dancing with the Stars celebrity updates

Holly MadisonOther than injuries plaguing most of the contestants, there are a few issues still making the celebrity dancing competition complicated on Dancing with the Stars. I love the fact that Denise is confused that she was eliminated. It's not like she was even top tier of dancers (Shawn, Gilles, Melissa, and Lil Kym), or even the middle pack (David, Ty, Lawrence, and Chuck). She was in the bottom heat with Steve-O, the Woz, and Holly. If I were the other three, I'd practice hard and hope I wasn't double eliminated.

Also, as a minor update, along with the opening credits finally being used, the pictures of Holly and Melissa have been update to match the rest of the contestants on the official website. No longer the really bad Photoshop job plaguing the contestant's page. It doesn't exactly match the other contestant's photos, but it's better than nothing. More news after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 3 results

Dancing with the Stars: Week 3 ResultsSteve Wozniak dodges yet another bullet. Not only did Steve not have to battle for his life, he was called early to the surprise of Karina. Steve Wozniak has fans. Lots of fans. I remember Kathy Griffin mentioning he had "Mac Enthusiasts" in her last comedy CD, but I guess they were actually as fanatic as she joked about. He must be getting the most votes to overcompensate a 10.

I smirked a little watching the show. I'm not sure why, but there was a glitch at one point when Samantha was interviewing Melissa. I was almost happy that I didn't have to hear her voice. Anyhoo, after seeing Steve safe, the bottom two was obvious. More information after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2 Results

Lacey and Steve-O(S08E03) With the results of week one, it could go either way. Either a non-contender bites the dust, or someone just doesn't have the fanbase. You can't say that Gilles has no fanbase after two really strong performances.

The recap show somehow managed to squeeze 26 performances in an hour. I now realize how much time I've wasted having to sit through Samantha Harris. Along with the results, and 30 minutes of other filler, Jewel performed. I'm sure someone out there was giving her the evil glare. The results after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2

(S08E02) - "We all know what Bruno wants." - Chuck

The show was a little off this week with the random sound cue during Ty's judging, the frozen video with Lawrence, the new judges paddles and Steve-O, but the performances were a lot better than last week. Most of the weaker dancers improved, and the rest basically stayed in the same scoring bracket. After the jump, an overall look at all the performances.

Hospital Trips with the Stars

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 14th 2009 3:29PM
Steve WozniakMove over Jewel and Nancy O'Dell, it seems as though there are some more bodies going to the Dancing with the Stars infirmary. This time there are three men with some reported injuries. This season is really shaping out to be all about the drama and nothing about the dancing. Find out who got injured this time after the jump.

Gilles Marini is suffering from a separated shoulder after checking an X-Ray. They gave him a cortisone shot, so he's recovering. We've had arm troubles before (Cristián de la Fuente) and they've just had to readjust to not put too much pressure on the injured arm.

Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List - Season Four Premiere

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 13th 2008 5:24PM
Kathy Griffin(S04E01) Kathy Griffin is back, or as I choose to call her now Emmy Girl. Yes, the Emmy is on full display. In your face, everyone, Kathy's got an Emmy! Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List won the Emmy last year and if this first episode is a sample of what season four has in store, that Emmy is going to get a companion. This show is riotous. And irreverent and a perfect blend of comedy and celebrity reality which is really unreality because how many of us interact with Anderson Cooper and Michael Moore?

Kathy Griffin has found the perfect genre for her particular brand of comedy. A sitcom wouldn't capture her true character, strict stand-up is not her best venue (although she's gotten very good at it), and a talk show would force her to chat with others and appear interested. The My Life on the D-List format works for her and she's found a way to incorporate stand up, situation comedy and guests into a reality hour that highlights her being funny. She has supporting players -- Team Griffin, Jessica, Tiffany, Tom and Kathy's adorable mom, Maggie -- as her comic foils and partners in crime.
