Yoko Ono: Japan Will Recover in a 'Big, Big Beautiful' Way (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 15th 2011 3:45AM
Yoko Ono was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN), where she discussed the on-going tragedy in her native country of Japan. Ono was obviously shaken up by the loss of life and damage created by the earthquake and tsunami. But thinking back to how Japan recovered from the devastation of World War II -- which Ono lived through -- made the 78-year-old optimistic about Japan's future.

"It's very similar, and we did recover in an incredible way," Ono said of the aftermath of the war. "And I'm sure that we will too this time. I think it's a kind of challenge -- it's a very big challenge, nobody wants this kind of big challenge. Well, with a big challenge, I'm sure that some big, big beautiful results will happen."

CNN's Rick Sanchez Freaks Out During Earthquake Coverage

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 1st 2010 1:31PM
Is there a worse news anchor than Rick Sanchez on TV right now? I can't think of one. He's over the top, arrogant, pushy, massively exploitative, and just unwatchable. I truly can't even listen to his voice. The tone, the cadence, the delivery... It makes me vomit a little bit in my mouth when he's on. I certainly don't want to have a "national conversation" with him. Thank God Shep Smith is on at the same time.

Here's Sanchez during the Chile earthquake coverage a few days ago. Savor the moment when he actually yells at the expert he has brought on. I think Jacqui Jerras just wants to get off camera somehow and hide in her office.

How did the earthquake affect your favorite show?

Mad Men
I didn't hear about yesterday's earthquake from the usual sources, CNN or one of the major newspaper web sites. Nope, I heard about it on Twitter! Ah, the days of rapid communication. They're calling it TwitQuake, since everyone in the area of the quake made a note about it on their Twitter pages the moment it happened. It took CNN and Fox News a few minutes to catch up.

The quake made news on the blogs too, including Rich Sommers'. Rich plays Harry on Mad Men, and filming of the show was interrupted. Rich took the picture above showing cast and crew mingling outside the studio. The quake also interrupted things at the Big Brother house (probably a romp in the hot tub) and on Judge Judy (video!). The judge promptly told everyone to shut up because she knows more about earthquakes than anyone else. Sunset Tan also felt the 5.4 jolt but looked fantastic during it.

And if you were wondering, everyone at America's Best Dance Crew is safe.

Eli Stone: Praying for Time

by Richard Keller, posted Mar 21st 2008 9:03AM

Eli Stone(S01E08) Man, Eli got whupped this week! I'm not talking about a physical beating here...I mean something worse. On this week's episode of Eli Stone our main character got emotionally and metaphysically beat up. And, the wounds that those beatings created take a lot longer to heal than physical injuries. Hence, the reason why Eli had a bit of a meltdown this time around.

It was probably bound to happen sooner or later, for Eli is a man with much on his shoulders. First, he has that whole "prophet" thing going on. Then, he has this supposedly inoperable brain aneurysm that has refocused all of his daily activities. Finally, to top it off, he has not one, not two, but three women in his life that are causing him nothing but grief. Gosh, Eli has been pretty strong to get through all of that. But, he couldn't remain stoic for long. So, tonight he threw up his hands and gave up.

The OC: The Night Moves

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 16th 2007 10:47AM

Autumn Reeser(S04E15) It's starting to feel very final isn't it? I'm really impressed with the way the series is wrapping itself up. Some of the cheese factor still exists (Seth getting help from the homeless folks again), but for the most part the characters and their paths are falling into place.

I think this may have been the first episode of The OC that took place entirely at night. As a result, the whole episode was lit in shades of dark and light blues. It reminded me a lot of a season one episode of CSI: NY.

Overall though, what the episode really emphasized for me is how far Ryan has come. This is probably the biggest tragedy that could have possibly occurred in Newport Beach and despite that, the group remained intact with Ryan right in the middle of it. Not bad for someone who came into their lives as an outsider.
