On Black Friday 2010, Don't Leave Your TV -- Go Home Shopping Instead

by Jane Murphy, posted Nov 25th 2010 4:00PM
Your TV is talking to you. It's begging you not to leave home and hearth to get trampled by bargain hunting Black Friday shoppers.

No doubt you'll be sapped from all that stuffing, so just remember: A holiday home shopping spree for you and yours is just one push of a remote-control button away.

HSN has a deep bench of celebrities ready to share their style with you. Tori Spelling will tout holiday ornaments from her collection, and Molly Sims will show off her earthy jewelry, "Grayce."

Meanwhile, QVC features designer/actor/reality show star Isaac Mizrahi among their headliners. Mizrahi will actually be making a Thanksgiving Day appearance on NBC's 'The Apprentice.' Let's see which other celebrities are playing Santa this year.

Mike Rowe tries to sell a bag - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 7th 2007 10:03AM

mike roweVia the AOL viral video site This Just In (AOL also owns TV Squad) comes a video featuring a very young-looking Mike Rowe (currently the host of Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel) selling a cat toy on QVC. Rowe was a presenter on the channel in the early '90s.

Give Rowe credit, because he's trying his best to sell a product that is, for all intents and purposes, a glorified grocery bag, but how enthusiastic can the poor guy get about a bag that even QVC's resident cat doesn't seem to care about? I suppose he could have got inside the bag himself . . . oh wait, he did.

Eureka inventions available online

eurekaIf you've never seen the SciFi series Eureka, you're missing one of the best new shows of the season. Actually, I've never seen a single episode, I just thought for a change of pace I would lionize things I've never actually seen or experienced. Have you ever put ranch dressing on a jelly donut? It's absolutely delicious, I'm telling you. Sorry, I'll get to the point: as a way to promote the series a faux shopping channel has been set up where people can "purchase" some of the cool and weird inventions that appear on the show. I'm thinking of getting myself a TemporalVision Monitor so I can get a jump on the next book Oprah wants everyone to read. When you try to buy the non-existent products, you're actually entered into a sweepstakes to win a Sony HDTV and Blu-ray player. All in all, a clever bit of marketing for the show. The site is MadeInEureka.com.

Buy Paula's jewels

paula abdulAmerican Idol judge Paula Abdul, who is known for making pieces of jewelry to give contestants in order to inspire them, plans to actually launch her own line of jewelry through QVC. The new line will be called the Paula Abdul Jewelry Collection. That sounds rather generic, if you ask me. They couldn't have gone with "Forever Your Girl" or something similar? Abdul will introduce the line before a live audience on QVC on April 21. Her signature jewelry will consist of charms, bracelets, earrings, and similar items. Like the jewelry she creates for the Idol contestants, these will also be adorned with words of inspiration. Twenty-six pieces will be introduced initially, with more set to be launched in the month of May.
