Artie Lange stabbed himself nine times, say sources

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 7th 2010 11:35AM
Artie LangeFans of Artie Lange (and of Howard Stern's show on SIRIUS radio) have been worried about Lange every since he was rushed to the hospital last weekend. Now we know why he's there and why no explanation was given at first: he tried to commit suicide.

Lange stabbed himself nine times and his mother called 911. He lost a lot of blood but doctors were able to save his life.

For some reason, suicide didn't even cross my mind as a possible reason that he was in the hospital. Not even for a second. I just assumed that he was in there because of drug problems and/or a possible overdose.

TV 101: Three reasons why I loved Artie Lange's complete dismantling of Joe Buck

by Jay Black, posted Jun 17th 2009 7:03PM
Artie LangeMonday night, Artie Lange went on Joe Buck's awful new show Joe Buck Live and did to him what Keyser Soze did to the Hungarian gang in The Usual Suspects.

If you didn't see it, let me tell you this much: Artie didn't kill the show; it was already dead when he got there. What he did was the equivalent of finding a dead squirrel (with awful, frat-boy hair), filling it full of firecrackers, then cackling gleefully as the guts rained down onto Jason Sudeikis and Paul Rudd.

Artie Lange's appearance on Joe Buck Live was boorish, crude, mean-spiritied, and blatantly homophobic. It was the kind of thing that'll probably end the career of the poor person who booked him on the show.

It's also something that we need a hell of a lot more of...

Artie Lange has been booted from HBO

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 17th 2009 2:03PM
Artie LangeThe New York Post reports that Artie Lange is no longer welcome to appear on HBO Sports or Joe Buck Live. I'm not sure if that ban extends to the entirety of HBO. For those of you that missed his, to say the least, controversial appearance, TV Squad had it covered but sadly the video was taken down.

Considering the company that Artie keeps on Sirius Satellite Radio, being banned should not be a foreign concept to him. No doubt they'll talk about it on Howard Stern's radio show for days on end.

Artie Lange is more interesting than the sports stars on Joe Buck Live

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 16th 2009 1:27PM
Artie Lange, Paul Rudd, and Jason Sudeikis were on the premiere episode of Joe Buck Live last night, and let's just say that Lange took control of the show with a dirty put down to Buck after the host brought up TMZ.com. (The after-the-show webcast can be seen at HBO's site, but it seems to be down right now.). Sports Illustrated has more, including comments from HBO and Buck.

Oh, Brett Favre was on the show too.

Kimmel talks to Howard Stern about Sarah Silverman, the upfronts, how ABC treats him

by Bob Sassone, posted May 20th 2009 8:03PM
A very tired-sounding Jimmy Kimmel went on Howard Stern yesterday (before his ABC upfront appearance) and talked about his break-up with Sarah Silverman, why ABC made him fly commercial to the upfronts, and a rather bad experience after eating a big steak. Videos below and after the jump. (It's Howard Stern/SIRIUS, so it's very NSFW).

Saturday Night Live: Will Ferell/Green Day (season finale)

Celebrity Jeopardy
(S34E23) Wow. Way to go, Will Ferrell. Maybe they should just bring back Saturday Night Live alumni for season finales from now on, because this episode was spectacular. Ferrell brought back some old favorites and a slew of famous faces, from the familiar to the inexplicable, including Amy Poehler, Tom Hanks, Anne Hathaway and Artie Lange. Here are some video highlights from the evening (Hulu vids are US only. Sorry, kids... you can also watch these videos at NBC's website).

Mad TV might not end after all

by Bob Sassone, posted May 7th 2009 7:05PM
Mad TVWe've heard that Mad TV will be leaving the FOX schedule in a couple of weeks, canceled after 14 years on the network (Talk Show with Spike Feresten has also been axed). Now it looks like the people at the late night comedy show have no intention of hanging things up.

Producer David Salzman is looking for another network to pick up the show. He says that this finale coming up is the "FOX finale," but he's talking to other networks about doing another season of the show (at least).

So, what network would be a good place for Mad TV to continue? I think there are three or four networks that come immediately to mind (no, I don't see it on Lifetime or WE). After the jump, let us know what channel would be a good fit for this show.

Rescue Me: High

Denis Leary and Andrea Roth(S04E10) "This guy ain't no souse!" - Teddy

And thus deteriorated the first Gavin AA meeting. These people are nuts. Everyone drinks, no one can listen, they're all stubborn, and none of them think that Sean is actually an alcoholic. I tend to agree. No one with a raging booze addiction thinks that God is a "giant cloud of pink gas."

That scene was only a dent in this episode though. I can't remember an episode of Rescue Me having so many things going on at once. It got a little tiresome to be honest. There was no real direction as each new scene rarely had a connection to another one. There were short little blips. Valerie called Tommy again and he blew her off since he was playing with that dog. Or take Richie. He came and told Franco about Natalie's new guy. Think about it for a second though. There was a lot going on here. But where's it all headed?

What I'm watching this summer: Joel's list

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 19th 2007 10:19AM
It's Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaI think I'm the last Squadder to put out one of these lists, and there's a good reason for that. After the crush of the season finales and upfronts in May, I was happy to not be a regular watcher of anything in particular, except for Yankee games, so there seemed to be nothing for me to write about.

But when I really thought about it, that's not even close to being true. Despite the fact that it's summer, there's more than enough quality programming that I'm sure I'll get sucked into some weekly habits at some point. So, after the jump, here's what I plan on watching:

Artie Lange news: He'll be a guest on Rescue Me

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 6th 2007 4:24PM
Artie LangeI don't know why I'm so fascinated by Artie Lange's career. Maybe it's because I listen to him every day on Howard Stern's Sirius radio show and I get a daily dose of Lange's everyguy persona and funny wisecracks. I'm also fascinated by the fact that, while he's doggedly determined to be a success in his comedy career, he is pretty much unable to resist just about every temptation known to man, from drugs to gambling to food to booze. Yet, no matter how addicted he is, he is so open about his life that he's been able to endear himself to the show's fans, and his career has taken off as a result.

Case in point: he announced this morning that he'll guest star on six episodes of Rescue Me this season, playing a fireman buddy of Denis Leary's character of Tommy Gavin. Perhaps this is part of the development deal Lange signed with FOX last year, as the show is on FX. But it may just be a part of the fact that, no matter what he gets into in his personal life, producers know that Artie has a following and can deliver a good performance. Either way, it's good to see him getting more and more work. He just needs to get some sleep and stop being so "sick," as he has been lately.

The Knights of Prosperity almost included Artie Lange

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 3rd 2007 4:44PM
In our effort to give the public every little bit of Artie Lange news possible, listeners of Howard Stern's Sirius show have been learning over the last few days that he was offered a role on ABC's comedy The Knights of Prosperity, but turned it down.

Which role, you might ask? Well, I'll leave that for you to guess, but here are some clues: Artie told Howard that they were looking for a "New Jersey/New York" guy, with the requisite accent and regular-guy manner. So, either watch tonight's premiere or go to the show's website and figure it out. There seems to be conflicting stories as to why he turned the show down: executive producer Rob Burnett told Howard 100 News that it was due to "scheduling difficulties", but Artie just didn't think the concept was going to fly. Burnett told the Howard 100 folks that he hopes to have Artie on later in the season; maybe the crew will try to rob him instead of him being one of the robbers.
