Jillian Harris Smashes Windows on 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 14th 2010 11:38PM
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Jillian Harris'The Bachelorette' Jillian Harris jumped reality shows to help out on 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC).

In fact, she proved to be pretty good at breaking windows, which sort of freaked out Brian and Audra Skaggs, the couple whose window she was breaking. No, they weren't there; they were on the other end of Ty Pennington's phone call, listening in on the destruction.

Hopefully, Harris won't need that window-smashing skill in her, uh, personal life. But hey, if she does, at least she'll be prepared.

ABC gives early renewals to 12 shows

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 23rd 2009 5:05PM
ABCIt's that time of year again when network executives are having meetings after meetings to decide which shows we should be watching next season. The CW announced the renewal of six of its shows about two months ago but besides that announcement, news of renewals have been rare when compared to news of cancellations.

Today, ABC sent out a press release confirming the twelve of its series would return for the 2009-2010 season. As you'll see after the jump, it was pretty much a given that those series would get another year either due to their ratings or the low cost of production compared to the money the show brings in with sponsors and ads.

Five TV stars who've exceeded expectations

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 29th 2008 1:24PM
Ty in suedeWhen I look at some of the people who have emerged as today's biggest stars on TV, I scratch my head and wonder, "how did that happen?" There are a few stars who have completely exceeded my expectations -- and I bet yours, too. In fact, after you read my five (no cell phone pun intended), I'm betting that you'll have a few more overachievers to add to the list.

1) Ty Pennington
I'm not ashamed to admit that for a couple of years I was hooking on TLC's Trading Spaces. It may have been the perky Paige Davis, the home improvement on a $1,000, the cool things that the designers did in just 24 hours -- whatever it was, I was a regular viewer. Oh, yes, there was also a carpenter on the show named Ty Pennington.

Queen for a Day is coming back

by Allison Waldman, posted May 19th 2008 3:07PM
QueenIf you have a leisure suit in your closet and think it'll never be in style again, you may be wrong. Everything has a way of coming back around, even game shows. With that in mind, Queen for a Day, a game show that ran in daytime for 20 years, is being resurrected for today. RDF USA has obtained format rights and plan to present their resurrected, revamped edition to cable and broadcast nets this week.

Queen for a Day was originally a radio show, but appeared on TV in 1947 and ran on and off until 1970. It was sort of the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition of its day, albeit on a much more modest level. Female contestants would appear to tell her story of woe and misfortune in order to be eligible to become queen for a day, wherein she would win prizes, be feted with a crown and robe, offered roses and other gifts. "Make every woman a queen, for every single day," was the host, Jack Bailey's closing line each day. If it sounds hokey, it was. Comedy shows regularly satirized it.
