Jimmy Fallon and Julianne Moore Compete Playing Random Instruments (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 29th 2011 5:01AM
Julianne Moore, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Jimmy Fallon loves to play games with his celebrity guests on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), but the one he came up with for Julianne Moore was certainly one of the more challenging.

They had to randomly pick instruments to play in the hopes that someone could guess what song they were playing. In this we learned that Moore cannot get a recognizable song of any kind out of a trombone, while Fallon was only marginally better on the cello.

Fallon, though, absolutely nailed 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star' on the harmonica, and still Chris Kattan could not figure out what it was. Oh sure, he knew the tune but he couldn't come up with even a part of the name in 30 seconds. Probably, it was on the tip of his tongue driving him just as crazy as it was Fallon. How often do we really hear that tune?

'The Middle': Brick's Birthday Story (VIDEO)

'The Middle': Brick's Birthday StoryOn the new episode of 'The Middle' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC), youngest child Brick Heck learns the true story of his birth ... on his birthday. The horrifying tale has been kept hidden for many years. But now that Brick (Atticus Shaffer) is turning nine years old, he wants to know what really happened.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]


Brick's birth involved a slight mishap -- just a minor switcheroo. When Frankie and Mike Heck (Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn) arrived at the hospital, they went to the wrong room. The room really belonged to a "Mrs. Ferguson" -- but it was huge and swanky, and even had a flat-screen TV. Frankie pretended to be Mrs. Ferguson in order to keep the place, saying that she wanted to experience "the horrors of childbirth in luxury" for once.

'The Middle': Teenage Bad Ideas, Making Out, and Throwing Up (VIDEO)

'The Middle': Teenage Bad Ideas, Making Out, and Throwing UpOh, to be a teenager again! After all, adolescence is the best time to come up with really bad plans that never work. Generally, these plans involve "hottie" girls. And yeah, these plans always fail. But at least they're entertaining.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

On 'The Middle' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC), it's Halloween time! Which equals girls in skimpy costumes. Teen son Axl Heck (Charlie McDermott) has an idea. He and his pals will take some "hottie" girls to a local haunted house. Once they're inside, the ladies will be so overcome with terror that they'll fall gratefully into the boys arms. Then, kissing will happen.

Of course, there are flaws with this plan. One of them: Even the boys are scared of the haunted house, and no one has made it through "without barfing." And barf doesn't generally lead to romance. But Axl shrugs away his friends' objections: "Think about it! [The girls] throw up all over the place, look to us for comfort. Boom! We're making out with them!" Brilliant! The guys high five, overcome by their own genius.

'The Middle': Welcome to America!If what you really want is a pet, then you shouldn't get a human being. Animals are fluffier, after all. Plus, you don't really have to talk to animals so much. It's a win-win all around.

On 'The Middle' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC), youngest son Brick Heck (Atticus Shaffer) really wants a dog. But his mother Frankie (Patricia Heaton) decides to go in a different direction. She adopts a Japanese exchange student instead.

'The Middle' -- Dealing With the Terror of Adult Diapers (VIDEO)

'The Middle' -- Dealing With the Terror of Adult DiapersOne sure sign of impending old age is that you have to get fitted for adult diapers. Though actually, the preferred term for "adult diapers" is "briefs" -- since the word diapers is considered a little, well, babyish. Still, whatever you call them, they can't be that much fun. And on 'The Middle' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC), Frankie Heck must confront the fact that she is old enough to be a candidate for an "adult incontinence product." Yikes.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Frankie (Patricia Heaton) is lounging around at home, when her daughter Sue (Eden Sher) calls on the phone. Sue is off at a babysitting assignment. However, the parents haven't left her any diapers -- and the baby in question is "double-loaded, " which sounds kind of ominous. Sue needs diapers right away, and so Frankie is pressed into service.

Craig Ferguson Pays Chris Kattan to Get Off His Show (Sort of) (VIDEO)

Craig Ferguson Pays Chris Kattan to Get Off His Show (Sort of)Man, there's nothing worse than a talk show host giving you money so that you'll leave. In fact, that's probably never happened before in the recorded history of television. Luckily, things don't get quite that bad on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

Host Craig Ferguson starts chatting with actor and comedian Chris Kattan. It seems that Chris has plans as soon as the interview is done -- he's promised to take his girlfriend and her female friend Riley out to dinner. So Ferguson decides to help the guy out by tossing him a few bucks. But Kattan gets pretty confused: "What's the money for?!" he says. "[Are you] paying me to leave?"

Chris Kattan Shows Off Shirt That Changes Color (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 19th 2010 4:00PM
We're not quite sure why Chris Kattan appeared on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated) today sporting a shirt that changes color along with his body temperature. And, apparently, neither is he.

Kattan demonstrates the color-changing power of the shirt by breathing on a portion of it, creating a patch of white. "Why did I buy this stupid thing? Like, if I'm sweating it's going to go .... " Kattan said, lifting his jacket to reveal streaks of white starting at his armpit that run the length of his shirt. Eww.

Amy Sedaris on 'The Middle': 'Move Some Metal!' (VIDEO)

The Middle, Amy SedarisAmy Sedaris guest-starred as a motivational consultant on 'The Middle' (Wed., 8:30PM ET on ABC), but came off as more of a drill sergeant when she told Frankie to "get your feet off that desk and move some metal!"

Someone's going to be fired, and it's probably going to be either Frankie or Bob, since Pete's the top seller. And Bob sleeping with the consultant may not help his case at all. How about just fire the consultant and keep all the sales people? Just sayin'...

Review: 'The Middle' - 'The Yelling'

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 4th 2010 2:45AM
Patricia Heaton, Chris Kattan - 'The Middle'(S01E14) I kind of like the relationship developing between Bob and Mike. When Mike threw him out of the house a few weeks back, I was actually a bit taken aback. Sure, Bob's a bit -- okay, a lot awkward, but he has a good heart and he's a decent guy. And he's good friends with Frankie.

It's made the writing seem a little uneven, as there are times Mike hasn't seemed nearly as bothered by Bob as he was that day. This week, we found out for certain why Mike gets annoyed by Bob. In fact, I'll take it one step further and say that we were right there with him. Good lord, how does Frankie even handle him? Oh, that's right. She's so fixated on her own messed up life, she hardly pays any attention to him. Mike should try that.

Review: The Middle - Siblings

The Middle: Siblings
(S01E09)
Every parent wants their kids to get along. It makes things more peaceful in the house, and you can feel like you must be doing something right. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out that way. The Heck children are so vastly different in personalities that the three of them bonding naturally is virtually impossible.

Sue is a bit of a dork, Axl is the cool kid and, as mentioned, Brick is ... Brick.

But that's not going to stop Frankie from trying, and dragging Mike along to support her. I'm glad to see Mike's honesty trait remaining strong as he supports his wife while admitting to his kids he has no idea what she's doing or why. And while her efforts didn't necessarily work at first, Mike found a way to bring the kids together. Too bad it was exhausting for the parents.

Review: The Middle - Thanksgiving

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 26th 2009 1:00PM
The Middle: Thanksgiving(S01E09) While I'm not ready to declare that The Middle is a superior sitcom to Modern Family, if this episode is any indication, I'm ready to say that it's every bit as good. And funny! Man, was this a brilliant holiday episode. I don't know how Thanksgivings go at your house, but ours have gone very much like this one at times. With everyone busy, and family members having to work because they have terrible bosses.

I swear, it's like these writers haven't set this in Indiana, but rather in my own Midwestern backyard. And while things were traditionally set up, as we'd expect, for the traditional "sweet comedy" outcomes, The Middle turned some of those conventions on their head.

They also showed us a new way to cook a turkey, though I'm not really sure if it would work all that well. And there's nothing wrong with Axl loving the can-shaped cranberry sauce. That's my favorite, too! Just slice it up and you're good to go.

Review: The Middle - The Scratch

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 19th 2009 11:15AM
Eden Sher, The Middle(S01E07) Right from the beginning, The Middle had me in familiar territory. I remember rushing around the house gathering trash and trying to get it out to the curb before the trash truck finished at the neighbor's house. And I remember just missing it; what a horrible feeling that was.

From there, while I was still able to enjoy the episode for the laughs it offered, I was just as equally terrified. As a parent, I've often wondered just how close we are to having the state take our children away. How innocent a comment or statement would it take before these agencies swoop down on our lives with all their self-righteous glory and scare the living crap out of us that they're going to tear our families apart?

From the moment when the police officer told Mike he wasn't even allowed to touch Brick in the principal's office, to the social worker refusing to tell Frankie and Mike how the evaluation went until she filed her report, it just seems like way too much power for some outside entities to have over our families.
