Emmys Opening Musical Number: Did Jane Lynch or Jimmy Fallon Do It Better? (VIDEO)

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 18th 2011 9:05PM
Jane Lynch Emmys openerJane Lynch kicked off the 2011 Emmy Awards with a musical number filled with celebrity cameos (Leonard Nimoy!), which, coincidentally, is how Jimmy Fallon kicked off the 2010 ceremony.

So, how did the two compare?

Well, Fallon went big with a 'Glee' tribute and Bruce Springsteen cover, while Lynch took the solo route with an original number about the magic of television and how everyone on TV lives in the same building.

Both recruited a ton of celebs to help out, but Fallon had the stars sing along with him while Lynch dropped into different show sets. Both included a requisite 'Dancing With the Stars' dig, though.

Who nabbed the bigger stars?

Jimmy Fallon (as Neil Young), Bruce Springsteen Sing 'Whip My Hair' (VIDEO)

Fallon as Neil Young, Springsteen Sing 'Whip My Hair'Does Jimmy Fallon have a particular affinity for Will Smith and family? First he sings the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' theme song as Neil Young. Now he's combined his perfect impression with Willow Smith's 'Whip My Hair' tune. Whatever his reasoning, we like what we see (and hear).

On 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), Fallon played acoustic guitar and intoned in Young's trademark whine, "Don't let haters keep me off my grind / Keep my head up, I know I'll be fine / Keep on fighting until I get there / When I'm down and I feel like giving up, I think again..."

Then Bruce Springsteen joined him for a somber rendition of the chorus: "I whip my hair back and forth, whip my hair back and forth / Just whip..."

Bruce Springsteen Rumored to Appear on 'Glee'If the latest rumors are true, 'Glee's' next cameo could really rock.

According to a report by Showbiz Spy and comments by 'Glee's' own Jane Lynch, Bruce Springsteen is rumored to be in talks for a cameo on the hit Fox show.

The Showbiz Spy article reports that Springsteen would play Finn Hudson's uncle, and, naturally, the 'Glee' team would sing many of his greatest hits, including 'Born in the USA,' 'Dancing in the Dark' and 'Born to Run.'

According to an insider, The Boss would perform several duets. "The idea is he would have duets with Cory Monteith and Lea Michele too," the insider said. "Bruce is part of American culture -- he would be perfect."

Brian Williams on Tiger coverage, his funny self, and what's on his iPod

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 17th 2009 2:03PM
Brian WilliamsWhen NBC was promoting Brian Williams' fifth anniversary as anchor of the NBC Nightly News, I figured it was a good opportunity to ask him a few questions. After all, with two wars, a lousy economy, the health care debate, and Tiger Woods, there's lots of news going on right now.

And, in such a relatively short period of time, the news landscape has changed on both the broadcast and the cable fronts, including the fact that on Monday, when Diane Sawyer takes over ABC's World News, he'll be the only male evening news anchor left.

Williams (or as he's been called lately, BriWi) was nice enough to answer some questions via e-mail about his new competition and how he lets his famous sense of humor come through during a serious newscast. Finally, he gives me some insight into what he's listening to right now (if you've seen previous interviews with him, he leans more towards the college radio side).

The women of Cougar Town are obsessed with sex

Courteney_Cox_Cougar_TownSome of you may think that TV Squad is filled with cheerleaders, that we all love TV so much that we rarely pull out our swords and skewer a show. Well, this should change your mind. I tuned in to Cougar Town last night and, I have to say, I was appalled. I thought I had seen what is likely the worst sitcom of the season -- Accidentally on Purpose -- but Cougar Town has surpassed it in badness.

Let me preface the rest of this criticism by saying that I was a loyal viewer of Friends. I liked Bruce Springsteen's video Dancing in the Dark. Scream was a hoot! I've been following Courteney Cox's career for years and I think she's terrific. She's funny and pretty and self-deprecating. I went into Cougar Town with high hopes. In other words, I have good will for Courteney Cox, like Jenna Elfman.

Max Weinberg won't be joining Conan when he hits L.A.

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 5th 2009 2:32PM
Max WeibergStep back from the guacamole dip. Put the chicken fingers down. Bruce Springsteen's drummer will stay that way for now.

It looks as though drummer Max Weinberg of Late Night with Conan O'Brien's Max Weinberg 7 won't be going to L.A. when O'Brien makes the jump to The Tonight Show this summer.

The New York Post breaks the situation down like this: Weinberg has too many ties to the East Coast and the E Street Band and moving to L.A. would just complicate things too much. Plus, his true bread and butter is playing for Springsteen and moving to the other side of the continent could cause a huge strain on him and his family.

Springsteen to rock the Super Bowl

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 11th 2008 12:39PM
SpringsteenWhen the Super Bowl first began, halftime shows consisted of marching bands and the occasional big name performer for a song or two. Carol Channing actually did two halftimes -- 1970 and 1972! Well, times have changed and so have the expectations.

The 2009 Super Bowl in Tampa reportedly has landed Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to anchor the Super Bowl halftime show. It'll be The Boss's first time performing for the NFL's biggest show.

One thing we can count on with Springsteen, there'll be no wardrobe malfunctions. Even if Little Steven whips off his bandana, the censors won't care. Ever since Justin Timberlake ripped the top off Janet Jackson and got a chunk of bra to go with it, revealing her breast to the ogling TV audience, the networks have been careful to keep the halftime shows purely musical.

American Idol: Mexicans for Taylor

by Lacy Hall, posted May 17th 2006 9:21AM

ai logoAnna Johns asks a very important question -- with Chris gone, does anybody still care about American Idol? My answer is yes and no. Chris was my number one dude, and I'm destroyed that he's gone. The thrill of the game has left me. I no longer feel the shrill of excitement every Tuesday when Chris takes the stage. I am now filled with blood lust, and I thirst for the demise of Elliott. I don't blame America for Chris' untimely elimination. I blame Elliott. I'm not exactly sure why, but somehow he is at fault. It's certainly not me. Taylor deserves to be in the finale, and so did Chris. Katharine? Eh, I guess. Elliott? Not so much.

With Chris gone, I have a new reason to watch Idol. I want Taylor to destroy them. Destroy them all. When we first met Taylor, he seemed the most unlikely candidate for American Idol. He's got gray hair. He's kinda tubby. And he looks like he's taking a dump when when he sings. This whole season has been absurd, so why not end it with a fireworks display of absurdity. I want Elliott and Katharine to be buried alive under the avalanche of votes that Taylor will receive. I want every man, woman, and child to vote for Taylor. I want more Americans to vote for Taylor then there are actually in America. I want Mexicans to illegally swarm over the border like locusts, with their Cingular Wireless phones in hand, just so they can vote for Taylor. I want him to destroy those other two. I want Taylor to rise from Chris' fallen ashes and pour acid rain all over Elliott and Katharine. I know that being bitter over Chris won't bring him back, but it makes me feel a hell of a lot better.

The Boss rocks out on 'Cold Case'

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 24th 2005 10:38PM

The BossEven Bruce Springsteen has a breaking point. Not usually a fan of letting his music be used in television programs, the January 8th episode of Cold Case will feature nine of Bruce's biggest hits, including "No Surrender" and "Atlantic City." However, if you can believe it, this story gets even better. The episode, entitled "Eight Years," tells the story of a few high school friends in the 1980s. They graduate, do their own thing, and then one of them ends up dead. Following the death, the other friends are questioned regarding the potential "murder." Now where have I heard that storyline before? It sounds so familiar... so recent, like it was from another show. The writer behind this episode of Cold Case said she chose the songs and then penned the script with the tunes in mind. Or maybe she just saw that show I can't remember... what was it?
