Give the 'Big Bang Theory' Stars a Raise Now

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 4th 2010 12:00PM
big_bang_theory_sheldon_leonard_penny_cbsBy any measurement, CBS's 'The Big Bang Theory' is a big hit. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that 'The Big Bang Theory's' three leads are asking for a raise.

Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons have teamed up to get Warner Bros., which produces the show for CBS, to share the profits they're reaping.

According Forbes.com, the threesome are currently making $65,000 per episode. They're asking for a bump in salary to $250,000 per episode. That's a 285% increase, but is it really out of line?

No, it's not. In fact, here's four good reasons why WB -- in conjunction with CBS -- should make it happen now.

Biggest Reality TV Break-Ups

by Chris Jordan, posted Jun 1st 2010 4:00PM
You don't need us to tell you that maintaining a relationship is not easy. Well, maintaining a relationship with TV cameras on is all but impossible. So we're not surprised by the breakup of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, not in the least. We present to you a list of other notorious, unlucky-in-love reality TV break-ups:

The Bachelors -- ABC's 'The Bachelor' is an entity unto itself when it comes to reality TV breakups. Simply put, the show has a terrible record of couples staying together. How bad? Try one for 14 (or two for 14 if you count Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, technically a runner-up, from Season 13, which we won't).

The only Bachelor couple still on is the most recent, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, and frankly, we don't see that one lasting long. Most Bachelor couples, like Season 3's Jen Schefft and Andrew Firestone, split after a couple of months and there have been a few others to last a year or two.

Season 7's Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice had been on-again/off again since 2005, but they made headlines in April when they announced they were off again.

How Well Do You Know Celebrity Commercial Voices?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 26th 2010 2:02PM
SuperCutsThere are a lot more celebrities doing voice overs than you might think. Sure, we can all instantly recognize David Duchovny when he plugs dog food, but there are a lot of other celebrities doing ads and you probably don't even realize it as you're watching the commercials (if you still watch commercials and don't speed through them on DVR).

TV.com has a quiz to see if you can guess which voice is on various commercials (don't read the comments on that page because they give away some of the answers). They show you the commercials and then you type in the actual name of the person (no multiple choice with this quiz, sorry).

A few of the voices will be familiar to you right away while some of them are going to leave you scratching your head a bit. I only got six out of fifteen, though all of the voices sounded familiar to me. I'm really angry at myself for missing number three...

Top TV Stories of 2009: Celebs who use Twitter

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 14th 2009 9:02AM
TwitterI'll admit that I wasn't swayed by the allure of Twitter at first. As someone who tried Facebook for three weeks a couple of years ago and then quickly canceled the account, I didn't want to get on a social networking site that was like Facebook but only had status updates. Why would I want to do that? But then I started using Twitter and then I got it. I got why it's so great (note: I'm on Facebook again, but only because Facebook is the new phone book - even if you don't use it that much, it's good to be listed).

Twitter haters always say the same thing when they explain why they're not on it: "Why would I care when someone's eating a sandwich?" It's so much more than that. I even think it has evolved into something the creators of Twitter could never have imagined. Sure, it's social networking, but not social networking in the sense that Facebook is. It's a whole different thing. It's like getting a stream of e-mails or IMs or breaking news posts throughout the day from people you're actually interested in hearing from.

And that list of people just might include TV personalities.

Dr. Drew sends addicted viewers to Sex Rehab on VH1

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Oct 14th 2009 9:04PM
Dr. Drew with take on sexual addition in VH1's Sex Rehab.Dr. Drew is taking on a sexier addiction, literally.

His new VH1 show, the unfortunately titled Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew (Is the title theme Motley Crue's' "Dr. Feel Good?") will take on celebrity sex addiction.

Addiction to alcohol and drugs, or eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, are already familiar topics on reality TV. But the VH1 release announcing the new show reports that sex addiction is equally common -- yet harder to identify and more difficult for some to accept.

Think about it. How many comedians would make some crack along the lines of, "Where do I sign up? For the disease, not the cure."

Christian Slater talks about The Forgotten, life at 40, and his love of TV

by Mike Moody, posted Oct 6th 2009 11:00AM
Christian Slater The Forgotten interviewStealing scenes on the small screen is nothing new for Christian Slater. The actor, known for films like Heathers, True Romance and Pump up the Volume, has made memorable guest appearances on shows like Alias, The West Wing and My Name is Earl. His first shot at his own series, the NBC spy thriller My Own Worst Enemy, struggled to find an audience, leading the network to cancel it halfway through the first season.

Slater is back starring in a new series, The Forgotten, produced by CSI head honcho Jerry Bruckheimer. The ABC procedural follows a team of amateur detectives who work murder cases involving unidentified victims, or John and Jane Does. Slater plays former cop Alex Donovan, whose search for his missing daughter inspires him in the field.

I got the chance to talk with Slater about The Forgotten, his new career in TV, and what one of his most famous big screen characters would think about his latest role.

I actually like Jay Leno's 10@10

The Jay Leno Show: Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, 10@10
The Jay Leno Show
has taken a bit of a beating from viewers and critics, but my household has been watching, and we like the show. Sure, there are parts of it that fall a little flat (like, ok, The Real Housewives of Orange County bit last night; Jason didn't like it either), but overall, Jay's pretty funny no matter what he's doing, and we enjoy the show.

One of the bits we like is 10@10, the part where Jay gets celebrities on his screen and asks them ten questions about anything. In last night's episode, he caught up with Billy Crystal, currently in Philadelphia touring with his show, 700 Sundays.

Army Archerd dead at 87

Army ArcherdA little bit of Hollywood died yesterday.

Army Archerd wrote for Variety since 1953, when he replaced columnist Sheilah Graham. That's not a typo. That's 1953, as in 56 years ago. That means he talked to everyone, saw everything, and wrote about just about everything that happened in Hollywood for more than five decades.

Sigourney Weaver talks Emmy buzz, Ghostbusters and Aliens

sigourney weaver prayers for bobby lifetimeSigourney Weaver starring in a Lifetime movie? It happened. It's called Prayers for Bobby, and the three-time Oscar nominee is racking up the Emmy buzz for her lead performance as a mother whose life is changed by tragedy.

I spoke with Weaver recently about the film, the Emmy buzz, her next big TV project and more. Here's a preview of that interview:

Weaver on the benefits of working for Lifetime, and other cable networks:

"I think Lifetime, along with other cable networks, show very compelling stories about what it is to be human in a way that a lot of films don't now, except for small independent films. They're interested in a smaller canvas and I think those stories are very helpful for people and I think that they bring us together."

Jessica Simpson finds a new way to embarrass herself on TV

by Mike Moody, posted May 28th 2009 7:05PM
jessica simpson new reality showSome things in life are just inevitable. Your hair will turn gray, you'll have to pay taxes, and Jessica Simpson will always try to shove her particular brand of stupid in your face.

The former Newlyweds star is reportedly shopping around a reality TV show called The Price of Beauty. Here's the concept, according to a US Weekly source: "She and a friend set off on a road trip around the world in search of what people find beautiful and why."

Reports describe the show as an exploration on society's outlook of women's bodies ... with a bit of Fear Factor thrown in! I'm not kidding. The source continued, saying that Simpson will do "shocking things that women do to make themselves beautiful. Picture Fear Factor."

What You Missed Last Night: Head Swap!

by Bob Sassone, posted May 27th 2009 1:39PM
At first I thought this was going to be another one of those lame late-night "bits" that would become a regular feature. An idea that might sound funny for about a half hour and then after you do a couple of them it gets really tired. It's called "Head Swap," where you put the heads of celebrities on the bodies of other celebrities. Sort of like Conan's "If They Mated." But then Jimmy Fallon takes it to a completely different area that actually made me laugh out loud. (Video also here.)

TV celebs wielding big sabers

christina hendricks mad men jedi chef light saberDo they cook? Not sure. Are they Jedi Knights? Errrrr, maybe? So what's the deal with Celebrity Jedi Chefs? We wish we knew. In their own words, they're [mostly] TV actors who "do the same sorts of things that 'normal' Jedi do, but [they] also cook." There are 216 of them, and most have appeared on buzzy sci-fi shows, including Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Battlestar Galactica.

We're not talking background players, either. Yeah, we're still stuck trying to figure out what Celebrity Jedi Chefs...is exactly (and if the pictures, as suggested by the fashion, were all magically taken in 1993), but we needn't hear any more if it means we get to see pictures of Joan Holloway (among others, after the jump) weilding a saber.
