Dog Walks on Hind Legs and Impresses Rachael Ray (VIDEO)

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jul 26th 2010 2:27PM
Rachael Ray I know, you're probably thinking, I walk on my legs every single day and I don't see TV Squad showing a video of me doing it! But it's special when a dog does it. Special and creepy.

This clip is from 'Rachael Ray' (weekday mornings, check local listings). Why do owners make their dogs do this? The dogs have four perfectly fine legs and can get along without walking up a flight of stairs like Frankenstein. I hope there was a particularly good treat waiting for this little guy when he got to the top.

Pet Psychic Encounters goes to the dogs

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jan 21st 2010 8:30AM
You too can have a Pet Psychic Encounter with Corky.I saw a stand-up comic a few years back that noticed the weakness in the whole "pet psychic" premise. Whenever the animal clairvoyant -- someone who is supposedly able to read pets' minds -- enters a home to "sense the thoughts" of a house pet, they always ask the same question first:

"What's your pet's name?"

What? Couldn't Fido or Mr. Fluffy-Kins give you a psychic business card?

With the prime time arrival of Pet Psychic Encounters on Saturday nights over at Animal Planet, we have yet another show that exists comfortably in the realm of the unprovable. You can't disprove that series host Sonya Fitzpatrick is a pet psychic because an Alsatian is very unlikely to hop up and scream, "No, I did not say I prefer dry food to leftover meatloaf! I object, sir!" You can't prove a negative. The same rule holds up for the endless march of ghost shows on "reality" TV.

Review: Monk - Mr. Monk and the Dog

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 31st 2009 12:32PM
All the people involved in Monk know that this is the last season. They've promoted it as such, and clearly they've planned it that way. That could explain why Monk is evolving in these last episodes. I was truly encouraged by last week's Sharona episode, which was one of the best Monks I've seen in a long time.

Could the next episode possibly be that good? Well, not quite, but it was wonderful. I'm giving anything away -- it's in the title -- but this was all about Mr. Monk and a dog. Yes, Adrian and a dog. More after the jump.

America's Got Talent: Top 20 performance show one

America's Got Talent(S04E21) "We're getting down to the wire." - The Hoff

This week's performers needed to up their games big time because some of them did not impress viewers that much in the past four weeks when each performed for a place in the Top 20. And, as The Hoff pointed, we're getting down to the wire and will soon crown the season four winner of America's Got Talent.

The first ten acts to show their talent in the semi-finals are from performance shows one and two of the Top 48. This way of breaking the acts allows diversity as we were treated to dance, acrobatics, singing, canine tricks, comedy and magic.

Do we have a potential winner amongst tonight's performances? Did the judges Piers X anyone? Comments and Top 8 -- yes, you read correctly no Top 10 -- predictions coming up!

America's Got Talent: Performance show four

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Aug 26th 2009 1:30AM
America's Got Talent(S04E19) A few of you told me that I was wrong by claiming that last week's performance show was electrifying. I agree with you that we have seen much better performance shows in the past. However, when you compare the third performance show of the season with the two previous, you have to admit that it was the most electrifying.

Save for a few of tonight's acts, such as Ishaara and Barbara, the third performance show is still the best performance show we've had so far this season.

My comments on the fourth performance show and my predictions coming up!

How did the Scooby gang get together anyway?

Ever wonder how the Scooby gang got together to solve crimes? Cartoon Network has a new live-action movie coming this fall titled Scooby-Doo: The Mystery Begins that tells the story. Here's the trailer. I don't like how Scooby is done in these movies, but I guess a real dog would be even worse.

Yet another television icon has fallen: the Taco Bell chihuahua

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 22nd 2009 7:08PM
Gidget the chihuahuaThere have been a lot of entertainment deaths recently, but none have struck me as much as this one. Gidget, the chihuahua best known as the lead canine in those Taco Bell commercials (Yo quiero Taco Bell!) has passed away at the dog age of 15 (which is around 105 in human years).

Gidget apparently suffered from a "stroke" (according to her trainer Sue Chipperton), but there are a few who know the entire truth. The dog raves and dog orgies that Gidget ran, the dog brothel she ran right outside of Las Vegas, the heavy duty dog drug use followed by the usual 4 A.M. Taco Bell run to satisfy the munchies... This was one sick puppy.

Okay, the last paragraph was a bit of a fib. Still, of all the celebrities to pass away recently, Gidget, I shall miss you the most. I shall think of you every time I drop the chalupa.

America's Got Talent: Audition show 4

America's Got Talent
(S04E04) "Houston, we have a problem." - Piers about the Houston, Tx, contestants

Yesterday, America's got magic. Tonight, America's got a problem. Yet, another episode filled mostly with bad or subpar acts. I don't get why the editors don't ensure a good balance between good and bad acts in each episode. Actually, I don't get why they don't show more of the good acts that are voted through so that we get to know the performers right from the start so they all have an even chance to get our votes. I guess I'm not cut out to be a reality TV show editor!

Let's give our two cents about the bad acts of the night, including Divani; Jolie, Lester and their lawnmower; Rusty "They don't understand Broadway" Reece, and Marti "The most annoying man in Miami" Brill.

Webster didn't really float in the air with the help of balloons

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 9th 2008 8:03AM
Sometimes it's really dangerous to try to recreate something you've seen on television. Can you imagine trying to fly like Nathan on Heroes or trying to be an overweight guy who marries a really hot woman like on all of the sitcoms? Dangerous! We've already seen a bunch of kids injured by trying to copy stunts on Jackass and Punk'd.

But some recreations aren't that dangerous, especially if you do them inside. Mena Trott over at the Dollar Short blog decided to see if she could attach balloons to her young daughter and have her float in the air, a la Webster in the opening credits of the 80s ABC sitcom. The result? Well, turns out you can't put a bunch of balloons on a child or a small person (or a dog) and make them float in the air.

Top TV Stories of 2007: Ellen DeGeneres and the dog(s)

by Jen Creer, posted Dec 26th 2007 8:00AM
EllenEllen DeGeneres just can't stay away from controversy. Even though she hasn't done anything as ballsy as coming out (I guess you can't do that twice, can you?), which fortunately didn't tank her career, this year was a bang-up year for Ellen in the news. The first dog I am referring to in the title is, in fact, a canine. Did anybody not hear about Ellen's infamous dog story? Ellen adopted a dog from a dog agency called Mutts and Moms, and signed agreements at the time that if the adoption didn't work out, she would return the dog to the agency. I presume Ms. DeGeneres has signed contracts before, but maybe this one didn't count. Maybe this one didn't seem binding. Or maybe she was just in a hurry that day, and didn't actually read it. (MSNBC claims that DeGeneres didn't read the contract, and that her partner Portia de Rossi signed).

Production halted on Dog the Bounty Hunter

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 1st 2007 8:05AM
duane chapmanDuane "Dog" Chapman is in a heap of trouble over some horribly racist comments he made. They're so bad that A&E has halted production on Dog the Bounty Hunter while the network investigates the matter.

Here's the story: The National Enquirer magazine has audio tapes where Chapman uses the 'N' word repeatedly and tells his son not to date black girls. Somehow, the magazine acquired a tape of a phone call between "Dog" and his son.

Chapman won't talk about it, but he did send his pastor out to calm down the media. Pastor Tim Storey, called "the pastor to the stars" by USA Today, said "Dog" cried for 30 minutes about it, saying "Can you believe, Tim, that I'm going to be put in the same category as Imus." Storey said that "Dog's" excuse was that he was mad at his son about his relationship with some girl.

Ellen's dog saga gets 'out of hand'

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 18th 2007 4:22PM
ellen degeneresIt's clear that Ellen DeGeneres didn't know what she was in for when she sobbed on her television show earlier this week about a dog rescue gone bad. Ellen cried as she told the audience how she adopted a dog from an animal rescue organization, but it didn't get along with her cats, so she gave it to her hairdresser. That violated the agency's adoption rules, so the agency took the dog away from the heartbroken hairdresser and her family. Ellen pleaded for the agency to return the dog and apologized for screwing up.

Then things got ugly. Fans of Ellen began harassing the rescue organization by sending angry--and sometimes threatening--emails. The owner of the organization said the threats scared her so badly that she closed her doors and stayed home on Wednesday.

On today's show, Ellen asks viewers to leave the organization alone. But she also says that she wants it to return the dog to the hairdresser because the woman's daughter is so attached to it.

Ellen DeGeneres sobs over a dog - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 16th 2007 1:38PM
ellen degeneresEllen DeGeneres is hoping the power of television and celebrity will give a little dog some special treatment. During today's show, DeGeneres breaks down and sobs as she tells the audience about her effort to find a good home for a dog she adopted.

Here's the story: last month, Ellen and her partner, Portia de Rossi, adopted a Brussels Griffon mix called Iggy. But Iggy didn't get along with the cats, so Ellen gave him to her hairdresser. It turns out, she violated the rescue/adoption agreement with Mutts and Moms, which promptly took Iggy away from the hairdresser. On today's show, Ellen pleads with the agency to return the dog to the hairdresser whose two daughters had become attached to Iggy.

It's pretty heart wrenching stuff- video after the jump.

The Simpsons: Stop, Or My Dog Will Shoot

Bart: You can't send him away. He's a dog, not Grandpa.

Special hint: if you're ever lost in a giant maze (corn or otherwise) you can find your way out simply by keeping your hand on the wall and walking.

You know, if Santa's Little Helper is the main focus of an episode, chances are it's not going to be very good. I didn't laugh very much during this episode, but here's what I did like:

WE to debut new series: Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter - TCA Report

by Kevin Kelly, posted Jan 12th 2007 5:22PM
Wife, Mom, Bounty HunterImagine something like Super Nanny meets Dog: The Bounty Hunter, and you've just about put together an entire episode in your head of WE's new reality show, Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter, which hits the airwaves in April. Sandra Scott, a former wrestler (she played Tiffany Mellon from Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) juggles teenage daughter Sabree, six-year-old "baby girl" Ever-Skye, bratty husband Ron (who looks like he's 18 years old) and catches criminals. She's blonde, but you won't find me calling her stupid. At least to her face.

In the teaser for the show, Sandra says "Guys have their muscles, and I have ... other assets. I'll go to the door with my boobs hanging out and ask for help." That's her modus operandi, and it really seems to work, on the men at least. Go figure. I'm not sure if American is really ready for another show about bounty hunters, but at least she's a lot easier on the eyes than Dog. Plus, her bite looks like it would be a lot worse than her bark.

From the panel: Ron states: "I'm also an electrical contractor, I like to work with my hands." Sandy: "I'll say that you do!" Yow. I really want to take a shower now.
