Cee Lo Green Makes 'Parenthood' Cameo (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 19th 2011 3:00PM
It was an NBC crossover last night on 'Parenthood,' (Tues., 10PM ET on NBC) as 'The Voice' judge Cee-Lo Green stopped by Adam and Crosby's makeshift music studio to record a song for a 60s tribute album. The guys had had recruited Cee Lo with the history of the place, touting the fact that Janis herself, along with Jerry Garcia, had recorded there, and scrambled to get the downstairs studio finished in time for the session.

But once they got started, Cee Lo didn't like how it was sounding and left, leaving Crosby and Adam to think he was irritated with Adam's goofy dance moves or the studio's sound quality. But just when they were down in the dumps, Cee Lo came back to give it another shot, pledging to try to sound less like Janis and do the song in his own style. It worked, and Adam and Crosby finished the first job in the new chapter of their "lemonade stand."

ABC fires All My Children head writer Chuck Pratt

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 21st 2009 9:02AM
all_my_children_logoWithin a few weeks, All My Children will be turning over a new leaf, officially making the move west to new studios in Los Angeles. Most actors are making the move. Some are not. And today ABC informed the head writer, Charles Pratt Jr., that he's been let go. If he had his suitcases packed, well, sorry about that.

Chuck Pratt was hired with some fanfare in June 2008. He was a big hire because his resume is filled with flashy successes, including Desperate Housewives, Melrose Place, Beverly Hills 90210, Ugly Betty, Santa Barbara and General Hospital, among others. Pratt was supposed to revive All My Children to its former luster, but -- alas -- it hasn't happened.

Has The Young and the Restless pushed the fans too far?

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 7th 2009 9:02AM
soap_opera_digest_cover_Y&RIf you were to take the collective temperature of the loyal viewers of The Young and the Restless, the number one daytime drama in the Nielsen ratings for 20 years in a row, you would learn that the fans are hot! They are steamed and fuming and ready to boil over with rage. What's got so many people so incensed? Well, it might be easy to say it's Y&R's recent baby-switch story line -- where Sharon's baby was taken from her and given to Ashley, with neither woman aware of the crime committed against them -- but it's actually more than that.

Y&R fans are up in arms over happenings on screen and off. The very idea that Eric Braeden is leaving the show, that the character of Victor Newman is going to be killed off, has been a shock. After the near exit of Melody Thomas Scott and Jess Walton recently, it appears as though the foundation of the show -- the most integral characters and the actors who play them -- are being destroyed. Fans are wondering what the powers that be are doing to "their" show!

Big Brother 9 winners talk to Julie Chen

Adam, winner of BB9, picks at his teethLast night Adam won $500,000 on Big Brother 9. Now, I know I heard Julie Chen tell them she'd be giving Adam his check and Ryan his winnings of $50,000 on The Early Show as is the standard practice. So, I turned on TV as I was heading out the door to my day job only to hear them say that Julie Chen has the day off today. Huh? I didn't bother recording as they didn't mention BB9 at all.

But there they were -- taped after the finale last night. I found the video of the interview on the CBS website. It's not embeddable, but if you follow me after the jump, I'll bring up some of the main points ... or, at least the ones I found interesting!

Big Brother 9: Eviction #3 and HOH #4

Mattie and Nattie
(S09E11) Expect the unexpected. Those of you who are dedicated BB fans know this phrase all too well. It could mean that your ex-boyfriend is getting thrown in the house with you. It could mean that your estranged father is one of your fellow houseguests. It could mean that your nemesis who you campaigned against is getting another chance at the Big Brother crown. Last night we evicted another houseguest, found out what the siren meant, and got a new HOH all in one hour. It's not going to be a really short season of BB after all!

A review of last night's Big Brother 9 follows after the jump...

Big Brother 9: Nominations #2

James from BB9 (S09E06) "Cups are a very essential part of life, ya know. We use 'em for drinkin' and what not." --Matt on Big Brother taking away all the drinking cups in the house after last week's HOH competition

Do you see how much vital information you can learn from CBS's Big Brother 9? Did you know about the power of the drinking cup before this? I didn't. The cup and his brethren, the glass, have taken on a whole new meaning for me. Matt, you have officially rocked my world. Matt also told us to never trust anyone with pink hair. Wonder who he's referring to?

More of Matt's nuggets and a recap of last night's Big Brother 9 is after the jump.

The seven coolest geeks on television

by Jay Black, posted Jul 6th 2007 11:06AM
I wish I was married to a Storm Trooper.Geeks get treated pretty badly in the media. Thanks to the fact that most people who get above-the-line credit in Hollywood are anything but geeky, when a script calls for a socially maladjusted character, it's almost always a terrible caricature of true geek culture. For years little geeklings only had the likes of Steve Urkel to look up to and that's not right (believe me, Jaleel White, when the geek revolution comes, you'll be the first one guillotined).

The fact that I'm about to become the father of my own little geek-spawn has led me to start looking around the current TV landscape, looking for appropriate geek role models. I was surprised to find so many...

Mythbuster's Buster will speak

by Adam Finley, posted May 18th 2007 11:02AM

mythbustersIf you're a fan of the Discovery Channel series Mythbusters, then you know who Buster is. He's the resident dummy on the program, the lifeless model who gets shot, stabbed, blown up, dismembered, and has all kinds of other nasty stuff done to him in the name of myth debunking (or proving).

Recently, the gang at Mythbusters decided to let Buster speak his first words, and they asked fans to submit lines. Now, you can go here and vote for which line is your favorite. Buster will utter the winning line just before he's smashed to pieces in an upcoming "car myth" episode. The site doesn't specify which episode, though, so I guess you'll just have to watch. The series airs Wednesday nights at 9:00 p.m.

All Adam wants for Festivus

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 23rd 2006 8:02AM

12 oz mouseChrist, I had to do one of these "All I Want for Festivus" posts last year and I couldn't think of anything to write about back then, either.

Here's the thing: I'm pretty content when it comes to what television offers these days, and now that so many television shows are being offered through iTunes and for free online, it's easier than ever to ignore what I don't like and just enjoy what I want.

Adam's Fall TV Schedule

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 16th 2006 8:01AM

everybody hates chrisEver since getting a Tivo a little over a year ago, I no longer watch TV shows when they actually air. When I'm not catching up with what's on my recorder, I'm either reading, listening to podcasts, or pounding out a blog post about what I'm watching on television. The big deletion from my Tivo Season Pass this year is House. I still admire the show, but for me the magic is gone. The season opener sat on my Tivo for quite a few days, unwatched. When I finally sat down to view it I realized, about fifteen minutes into it, that I had completely lost interest in it. I didn't even finish the episode, and took it off my Tivo for good. Perhaps my attitude will change in the coming weeks, but who knows? Anyway, some of these shows are winding down their current seasons, some have yet to air. All times are Central because I live in Minnesota.

Doctor Who series one: The Long Game

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 21st 2006 10:33PM

Doctor Who -- The Long Game(S01E07) For a couple of episodes now The Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) and Rose (Billie Piper) have been slumming around our humble planet Earth in about a one hundred year time span. This episode we get off of good ol' Terra to a satellite hovering around the planet in the year 200,000. Joining the intrepid travelers is Adam (Dalek's Bruno Langley).

From the beginning you could tell that this episode would be different from last week's dark,  introspective episode. The Doctor, Rose and Adam land on Satellite 5, which broadcasts news of the entire Earth Empire (Yes! We're still great even in the future!). News gathering is performed by one person, whose brain is one big storage unit, while subordinates put the reports together using small mind chips. An 'Editor-in-Chief' oversees everyone on the satellite and in the entire empire through a control room manned by zombies.The whole thing reminded me a bit of Max Headroom.

Anyone who performs well gets promoted to floor 500. However, after they get promoted they are never seen again. And there, dear readers, lies the mystery that The Doctor must solve. Because, not only does he need to find out where these people go, but why their technology is so backwards (for the year 2000,000 that is.)

Some thoughts on My Gym Partner's A Monkey

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 20th 2006 1:44PM

my gym partner's a monkeyMy Gym Partner's A Monkey, the newest kid cartoon for Cartoon Network, doesn't officially premiere until Friday, February 24, but today Cartoon Network offered a sneak peak at the show. I'm a bit too old to really get into it, despite enjoying a lot of similar animated programs. Still, the show isn't without its charm and I think younger kids will get a kick out of it.

The show focuses on Adam Lyon, a kid who, because of his last name, is accidentally placed in a school for animals, Charles Darwin Middle School. Each animal's personality is based loosely on their real-life counterparts. For example, in the episode "Inoculation Day" the nurse, who's a gazelle, has trouble giving shots because her brain is only the size of a soy nut. Adam's best friend, a spider monkey named Jake, has a fascination with his own butt that's only odd if you're not a monkey. There's plenty of slapstick and poo humor, so it's pretty much guaranteed kids will love it. I even found myself cracking up a few times. The show was created by husband and wife team Jeff Cahill and Julie McNally Cahill, who previously worked on Baby Looney Tunes.

The MythBusters respond on Slashdot

mythbustersEver wanted to know what myths the MythBusters always wanted to do? How about which myths had results that surprised the heck out of them? A while back, Slashdot had an open invitation for readers to submit questions for the Mythical duo, and they recently supplied the answers. I, for one, can't wait to see the episode where they test the vertical bullet myth they talk about!
