Meredith Vieira Pranked Twice, One With a 'Nude Picture,' on 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 25th 2011 5:15AM
Meredith Vieira, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Meredith Vieira had a tough time on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). First, she had to deal with a video prank of sorts from Matt Lauer. In it, he apparently laid out her morning routine, which involved grunting from the bathroom that she was changing in, just before a toilet flushed.

The closing moment was absolutely brilliant when he lifted and sprayed an air freshener can while asking, "Changing? Really?"

If that wasn't bad enough, she should have maybe reconsidered sticking around for Demetri Martin. The comedian came out and showed Jay Leno a photo he said somebody sent him of Vieira vacationing in France. It was an obvious transplant of Vieira's head on a naked body coming out of the ocean, but it must have been convincing enough for Leno, who confiscated it.

'Important Things' Out, CBS in For Demetri Martin

by Nick Zaino, posted Oct 20th 2010 10:45AM
'Important Things with Demetri Martin' won't be back, Martin moves to CBSDemetri Martin is working on a TV show, and it's not season 3 of Comedy Central's 'Important Things with Demetri Martin.'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Martin has signed a deal with CBS to write, produce, and star in a new show. The Hollywood Reporter and TV Squad both confirmed there will be no season 3 of 'Important Things.'

It's a blind script deal, which means the show could be anything. And given Martin's vast imagination, it would be pointless to speculate on the details. The Reporter does point out that Martin fits with CBS's desires to court a young audience, in line with recent actions like developing new shows based on Twitter feeds.

Seven TV Stars I'd Love To See on Twitter

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 22nd 2010 6:30PM
Tina FeyAh, Twitter. That web site with the funny name that for many people has suddenly become as vital as e-mail and instant messaging. Even celebrities are into it, and while there are many TV stars who on it, there are even more who aren't but should be. After the jump, my list of the seven I'd follow forever.

You'll notice a trend with the list: they're all funny people. That seems to be the thing that works best on Twitter.

1. Tina Fey. Can you imagine Fey on Twitter? That would be the online equivalent of "Must-See TV." She actually got the @tinafey account that someone else had grabbed, but she hasn't done anything with it. And, alas, she's not going to. In a recent interview with Esquire, Fey said that doing Twitter would be a "busman's holiday," and just more writing she'd have to do. Oh well. We still have Judah Friedlander (@JudahWorldChamp) and the official '30 Rock' Twitter account (@nbc30rock).

Finger Puppet Legs on 'Important Things with Demetri Martin' (VIDEO)

Finger Puppet on 'Important Things with Demetri Martin'On last night's 'Important Things with Demetri Martin' (Thu., 12:30AM ET on COM), the comedian used a, shall we say, unconventional method to procure the all-important armrest at the movies.

When the guy sitting next to won't relinquish the space, Demetri Martin pulls out a finger puppet, delicately adding tiny tennis shoes. The puppet wins out, with no verbal confrontation between the two men. In fact, no words are exchanged throughout the entire scene. How very kind and considerate of Martin toward his fellow movie fans.

Demetri Martin Has Money All Figured Out (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 26th 2010 2:40AM
Demetri Martin, Money Demetri Martin has some really interesting theories about money. For instance, did you know that if a person uses the term "moola," that means they have a little bit of money? We didn't either, but it makes perfect sense.

On the other hand, if they use the term "assets," that means they have a lot of money. Again, we're onboard with this theory. We didn't realize, though, that if you call money "napkins," that means something very special.

He's got all the answers on 'Important Things With Demetri Martin' (Thu., 10PM ET on COM).

'Sarah Silverman' and 'Demetri Martin' Get Return Dates

by Scott Harris, posted Dec 28th 2009 11:23AM
Here's hoping Matt Damon has some space on his DVR, because it looks like he'll need it this February. No, not for the announcement of the Oscar nominations, but for something far more important: the return of Sarah Silverman.

Yes, according to TV Guide, Comedy Central has finally scheduled the third season premiere for 'The Sarah Silverman Program,' which will return to the airwaves on February 4 in the 10:30PM time slot. Silverman, who, of course, famously boasted of a (fictional) relationship with Damon on 'Jimmy Kimmel Show!,' has been off the air for well over a year while the network sorted out details of the show's return.

Silverman and Martin return to Comedy Central

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 22nd 2009 6:15PM
Sarah SilvermanComedy Central has announced that The Sarah Silverman Program will begin its third season and Important Things with Demetri Martin will begin its second season this coming February. It looks like Sarah Silverman's show made it despite the budget cuts.

Silverman's show was hilarious in its first season. The second season wasn't quite as good. The entire concept around her character gets grating over time (I find the same is true of her stand-up). The conclusion is that Sarah Silverman is best in small doses. Having a character that is so self-absorbed and unrecognizing of her own mistakes only works for characters like Master Shake. Of course if she actually learned a lesson, then the show would be over.

Having not seen any episodes of Demetri Martin's show, I cannot comment. I did enjoy his appearance on Flight of the Conchords (I still hum "Doggy Bounce" sometimes). How do you feel about the return of these shows?

Every week I see tons and tons of TV DVDs released, and the only thing I can think of is "when is _______ going to be released?" Sure, I'll get The Office this week (but borrow someone else's Fringe), but I don't really see anything else that cries out "buy me for your collection!" I'm still waiting for Spenser: For Hire and Ed.

Timing perfect for DVD of Demitri Martin's Comedy Central show

by Nick Zaino, posted Sep 5th 2009 11:02AM
Important Things with Demetri MartinWhen I first previewed Important Things with Demetri Martin, I was hoping it would get good enough ratings to allow Martin to stick around and explore a little bit. I've enjoyed him as a stand-up comedian, both live and on his Comedy Central specials.

Important Things was the perfect vehicle for Martin, showcasing his absurdist deadpan, allowing him to work with some talented friends like John Oliver, Jon Benjamin, David Cross, and Amanda Peet, and even letting him play a musical number or two.

Comedy Central's holiday weekend Stand-Up Blowout

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 3rd 2009 9:32AM
Katt WilliamsSince programming anything new is probably a waste on a holiday weekend, Comedy Central is programming roughly 4,000 previously aired stand-up specials (okay, just 40, but that's a lot) from some of the biggest names on its rosters, including Dane Cook, Jeff Dunham, Katt Williams, Louis C.K., Lewis Black, Brian Regan, Demetri Martin, Ron White, Lisa Lampanelli, and Jim Gaffigan. They'll also sprinkle in some of their Comedy Central Presents half-hour showcases. It's called the Stand-Up Blowout Weekend.

The first special is at 3 PM - Aisha Tyler is Lit: Live at the Fillmore and end, officially, with Drew Hastings: Irked and Miffed at 3 AM Monday morning. Sunday at 10PM is the network premiere of Dave Attell: Captain Miserable, which originally aired on HBO on December 8, 2007.

Comedy Central has renewed Important Things with Demetri Martin for a second season. If you haven't seen the show, here are some clips from the "Games" episode (every episode has a theme that dominates each sketch and joke). Martin can also be seen in Ang Lee's new film Taking Woodstock this summer and also the film version of Moneyball next year.
