Jackson is seen in a clip revealing a laundry list of substances to Dr. Drew Pinsky, the main counselor on 'Celebrity Rehab.' Jackson noted that keeping in shape without the substances has been a challenge. "It's a trade-off," he said. "I'm 188 pounds. When I went on the show, I was a little over 200 pounds. So I've lost at least 15 pounds, some of it muscle."
Jackson said he's lost muscle and gained fat, which he called a "bummer." No more so, we're guessing, than going on 'Celebrity Rehab.'
In 1989, NBC aired the pilot episode of 'Baywatch,' a new series chronicling the dangerous adventures of a group of hard-bodied California lifeguards. Next month marks the tenth anniversary since the end of the series, though it lives on in syndication repeats all over the world.
During the show's 12-year syndication run, 'Baywatch' perfected what will ultimately be its legacy: the number one beach-related television innovation of all time -- slow-mo running. Preferably by hot chicks, but sometimes by that prime archetype of manliness himself, David Hasselhoff.
Although 'Baywatch' had some wonderfully soapy plotlines, let's be honest -- the reason we loved the show was because of the aforementioned hot chicks and slow-mo running, not to mention Hasselhoff's chest hair. Okay, kidding on the third. (Although it was magnificent, wasn't it?)
Traci Bingham, Nicole Eggert, Donna D'Errico and Gena Lee Nolin have signed on to star in the new reality series, 'Back to the Bay,' Variety's Michael Schneider reports.
The new 'docu-comedy' will follow the women as they live together in a beach house and "embark on new phases of their career."
Exec producer Scott Stone calls it "a fun summer romp on the beach. These amazing women have all embraced the nostalgia of the 'Baywatch' phenomenon and are ready to show us all how to have a blast again."
What have they been up to since hanging up their red swimsuits?
It's a miracle! 'Futurama' is back from the dead. Or maybe it's just been thawed out of its cryogenic freeze? Whatever the case, it's back -- with the original voice cast -- on Comedy Central (Thu., June 24 at 10PM ET) and fans are happy.
Canceled in 2003, 'Futurama' got four straight-to-DVD flicks, the last one came out in early 2009. Fan interest was renewed and Comedy Central aired the films as episodes before green lighting the series for new episodes. Yes, Matt Groening is bringing Fry, Leela, Bender and the rest of the bang for new adventures in space. The cast is signed for 26 episodes. In the one hour premiere, the Professor attempts to resuscitate the crew with his birth machine after a devastating crash.
While 'Futurama' fans are celebrating this victory, it's important to point out that this sci-fi cartoon is not the only show to survive cancellation. What other shows have defied the orders of studio executives? Well, read on to find out!
There was no smoke monster or time travel on 'Baywatch' though. Maybe that was 'Baywatch Nights.' [via Warming Glow]
If Momoa's most visible roles involve a franchise name followed by a location, then perhaps a better title for the flick would be Conan the Barbarian: Middle Earth. Even better, they could have Conan the Barbarian: New Jersey. I'm just saying.
Mind you, there have been rumors for years about a remake or continuation of the Conan movies. If I recall correctly, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was attached to the lead role at one point.
One can only wonder if the recent controversy surrounding another guy named Conan sparked this particular announcement at this time. Or maybe, as Doc Brown says, it could just be an amazing coincidence.
Pamela Anderson may have to start spending a little less time at the beach. Apparently she owes the Internal Revenue Service almost $2 million in back taxes.
Obviously, this was a miscalculation on the part of her accountants. Given Anderson's history and reputation, it's not as if we're expecting her to do her own taxes. Nor are we expecting her to develop a new cancer vaccine or do rocket engineering anytime soon.
Perhaps Hollywood could have some sort of fundraiser for her. "Pam-Aid", perhaps? She could auction off the outfit she wore on The Girls Next Door. Oh wait, she wasn't wearing one. Her former Baywatch co-star David Hasselhoff could even sing one of his hits at the concert.
She is expecting to make some money soon. Her new music single is being released in 2010. Sales are expected in the dozens.
Things may get so desperate that she'll have to sell one of her boobs. It's okay. Others can be made.
Having said that, I certainly don't want it to return, either as a TV show or a big screen movie or a video game or even a set of glassware. But I do like this Funny or Die video below, which shows the return of Nicole Eggert. Hey, she still looks OK to me!

The clothes the guy has on will probably give you a seizure, so you've been warned. The show debuts Monday at 10 PM on Living.
The folks over at Best Week Ever have complied a great set of videos that show people doing the theme songs to various TV shows on various instruments. Some of them are pretty straightforward with normal instruments (for example, a small orchestra doing the Muppet Show theme and Family Matters done on piano), while others are rather odd and unexpected, like the parrot doing the Andy Griffith Show theme or The Love Boat performed on a theremin. After the jump, one of my favorites: the theme to Baywatch performed by a guy on an acoustic guitar. He even has his shirt off like a lifeguard and shows pics from the show.
I still don't get that MacGyver theme on the ruler though.
Jackson played David Hasselhoff's son Hobie on Baywatch many moons ago, and he's now one of the cast members of VH1's new celebreality (gah) show Confessions of a Teen Idol. He'll be joined by former Real World star Eric Nies; Christopher Atkins, the star of The Blue Lagoon; and former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jamie Walters. Which makes me think that maybe the title of this show should be Confessions of a Former Teen Idol, since all of these guys are in their late 20 or 30s or 40s.
Actually, without even watching this show I can tell you what these people are up to: they're starring in a new VH1 reality show. They're trying to get back into the business in a big way, and I guess these days that means first starring in a reality show. Which, by the way, starts on January 4.
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).
That's one of interesting revelations (though that one has been known for quite some time) in the new book Mickey Rooney as Archie Bunker and Other TV Almosts by Eila Mell. It lists a bunch of actors and actresses who almost got roles we know and love. For example, Jenna Fischer (The Office) tried out for the role of Sydney Bristow on Alias, but was deemed not sexy enough for the part (as we told you about before). Whitney Houston didn't want the role of Bill Cosby's daughter on The Cosby Show so the role went to Lisa Bonet. And Leonardo DiCaprio almost played David Hasselhoff's son on Baywatch (the role went to Brandon Call and later Jeremy Jackson). That one isn't surprising at all, considering DiCaprio did work on Growing Pains and other shows.
I'm not quite sure why this happened, but buxom actress/model/sex tape entrepreneur Pamela Anderson made a guest appearance in the Big Brother house on the Australian version of the show. TV Tonight has the rundown of the appearance and a bunch of pictures. Someone uploaded video of the show here. I like how the announcer introduces her as an author.
Doesn't Australia have any scantily-clad, silicone-enhanced actresses of their own that could have made an appearance?
