'Community' - 'The Art of Discourse' Recap

'Community' - 'The Art of Discourse'
(S01E022)
I don't even go to college anymore (because I went at the right age ... DUH!), and those damned three teenagers were driving me crazy, too. Not crazy enough to do what the above scene is depicting, perhaps, but it makes me wonder how we let our teenagers survive into adulthood. They're almost too annoying.

It's nice to see, though, that as adults we are able to stay above their juvenile antics. We'd certainly never reciprocate in kind. We have our own pranks to pull. After all, that's what college is all about. It's on Abed's list.

TV Land Picks Up 'Harry Loves Lisa'

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Jan 12th 2010 9:30AM
Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin are in for another reality check.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the real-life 'Dancing With the Stars' couple will star in the new reality series 'Harry Loves Lisa,' airing on TV Land. The six-episode series will explore the couple's daily life, family and careers.

Executive produced by Jason Carbone (MTV's 'Run's House'), 'Harry Loves Lisa' will run in TV Land's fall PRIME original series block.

Rinna is known for her role as Billie Reed on 'Days of our Lives,' as well as playing Taylor McBride on the primetime soap 'Melrose Place.' She then transitioned to the host of SoapNet's 'Soap Talk.' Hamlin, meanwhile, is perhaps best known to TV fans as Michael Kuzak in 'L.A. Law.'

TV Land picks up something called a "docusoap"

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 12th 2010 8:06AM
TV LandJust when you thought we had reached the nadir of mixed TV words with "dramedy" and "celebreality," here comes another word we all have to get used to: "docusoap."

That's how the new TV Land series Harry Loves Lisa is being described. It stars real-life husband and wife Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna. Regardless of what they call it, you know exactly what it is: a reality show that's going to show the day to day lives of two Hollywood stars, because everyone in the world wants to know what Harry Hamlin eats for breakfast and what Lisa Rinna's dressing room is like. And still the network doesn't show The Dick Van Dyke Show.

You know what? You can't see The Dick Van Dyke Show on TV right now, but you can watch every episode at SlashControl. After the jump, one of my favorites.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 9 Results

by Michael Pascua, posted May 6th 2009 12:32AM
Cody Linley with his wooden hips(S08E17) Tonight's show was a little better for filler and padding because of the pro dancer competition. The insanity of Cody Linley makes up for having to sit through Jamie Cullum.

I don't understand the comedy of Dance Center. Poking fun at the celebrities is one thing, but trying to be a bastard to Len Goodman just doesn't seem like it was in good taste. The only positive thing I got off the whole bit was that Mark = Dramatic Chipmunk.

We started off the night with Melissa's perfect 30 samba. I have a feeling there was more double sided tape today, but also Melissa's cleavage is not as squished tonight. Yeah, I looked.

5 Questions With: Lisa Rinna

by Kim Potts, posted Dec 16th 2008 6:00AM

"I haven't heard anything more about [a 'Melrose Place' reunion] recently, but I think it would be great. It's the perfect timing for it."

Oprah, Martha Stewart and Rachael Ray may have to make room for a new queen of all media ... TV star, exercise video creator, fashionista and upcoming author Lisa Rinna, who's just one self-titled magazine away from snagging the title herself. And Rinna's looking to add something to the list that those other TV divas wouldn't dare -- she recently told Extra that she's considering posing for Playboy.

The 'Melrose Place' and 'Days of Our Lives' alum and 'Dancing With the Stars' season 2 contestant is teaching fans of the show how to get down and boogie with their bad selves via her just released dance and exercise DVDs -- 'Lisa Rinna: Dance Body Beautiful - Learn & Burn' and 'Lisa Rinna: Dance Body Beautiful - Jive, Jump, Ballroom Bump' -- created with her 'DWTS' partner Louis van Amstel.

With her DVDs in stores now, Rinna talked to AOL TV about how dancing is the best workout, her upcoming reality show with husband of 10 years Harry Hamlin, a 'Melrose' remake and whether or not we gave her hubby his appropriate TV hunk props.

TV Land plots a Harry Hamlin & Lisa Rinna reality show

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 4th 2008 1:04PM
Harry and LisaThere are two things that I find disturbing about the news that there's a reality show in the works for married actors Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna for TV Land. Number one, do we really need another show biz couple exposing their personal lives for the cameras? Number two, why is TV Land getting away from celebrating TV history by broadcasting great old shows to do banal entertainment like this kind of unscripted drivel?

Are audiences really clamoring for more of this stuff? I know I'm not, and I don't know anyone else who is! Seriously, this is not reality TV. There's nothing real about it except that they're using their real names. (Yes, those are their real names!)

Read my lips, TV Guide Channel: Shame on you

by Keith McDuffee, posted Sep 12th 2007 11:54AM
tv guide read my lipsLike I said yesterday, the press kits have started to come in to the TV Squad offices. Some of them are way cool, some are downright silly and some are nonexistent. Just last week I got one in from the TV Guide Channel for their upcoming red carpet coverage of the Emmy awards. OK, sounds reasonable, right?

When I opened the box and the hermetically sealed canister within, what I saw made me fear that I had just unleashed some unseen beast unto my unsuspecting family. As it turns out, only my dog was in danger.

Ex-soap star gets hosting gig on Crosswords

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2007 3:23PM

Ty TreadwayCrosswords is the eagerly awaited new game show from Merv Griffin that premieres in syndication this fall, and they have found their host.

Ty Treadway, a former actor on One Life To Live and a co-host of Soap Talk with Lisa Rinna (who also has a new gig, taking over for Joan and Melissa Rivers at the TV Guide Channel) for several years, is going to host the new word-oriented game show. In explaining the choice, Griffin said that Treadway "exudes the kind of energy that will keep audiences engaged and excited."

Come on, Ty Treadway? Is that his real name? Indeed it is. It sounds like a name of a Simpsons character. Was Guy Smiley not available?

Here's why Joan and Melissa Rivers were fired

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 23rd 2007 4:40PM

Joan and MelissaInteresting post by Tom O'Neil over at his LA Times blog. O'Neil is the guy you see on many of the awards shows, especially the Emmys, giving his analysis and predictions. He worked with Joan and Melissa quite a bit, and knows why they were let go by the TV Guide Channel. And it didn't have anything to do with money.

The reason? Entourage (and not the HBO show). I guess the two women have too many people around them and it got to be more of a hassle than it was worth to the network.

O'Neil also says that Joan and Melissa are a lot nicer and more generous than they've been made out to be. He also reveals that several producers at the TV Guide Channel wish they had been kept on (the same with E! execs, because Star Jones drove them nuts on the red carpet). I'm sure we'll be seeing the two women again with another deal soon.

Goodbye Joan Rivers, hello Lisa Rinna

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 18th 2007 6:23PM

Joan RiversFirst they were kicked to the curb by E! Entertainment Television, and now the same thing has happened with the TV Guide Channel: Joan and Melissa Rivers have been let go by the network and replaced by Lisa Rinna, star of Dancing with the Stars and various soaps.

Joan has a lot to say about what happened, but is keeping quiet until a new deal is finalized, says her spokesperson.

I love the press release from TV Guide Channel President Ryan O'Hara. Let me translate his remarks:

Stacy London gets her own talk show

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 18th 2007 2:37PM
stacy londonStacy London, co-host of TLC's What Not to Wear, is getting her own weekly show. It's your typical talk show format with celebrity guests and feature segments, only Stacy's show will focus more on fashion and beauty. She has already shot at least one episode, which is packed with celebrity guests Jane Krakowski, Lisa Rinna, show designer Kristen Lee and author Ron Geraci. Beauty and fashion segments include trying out fashion trends on regular folks and, of course, makeovers.

I love Stacy on What Not to Wear and she has held her own pretty well when she has appeared on Oprah to talk about jeans and great clothing finds. Stacy brings a lot of sass to What Not to Wear and I hope that carries over to her talk show.

Shut Up! It's Stacy London premieres Friday, April 6 at 10 pm on TLC after What Not to Wear.

Here are the Daytime Emmy nominations

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 14th 2007 5:22PM

EllenThose cruel Emmy bastards. Here Regis Philbin is today, recuperating from his heart bypass surgery (unless it's still going on, which is possible), and he doesn't even get a nomination for Best Talk Show or Host!

Ellen got a nod though, and she led all nominees with 12 nominations. Going up against her for Best Talk Show are Dr. Phil, The View, Tyra Banks, and Rachael Ray. If she's not the winner out of that group, something is wrong somewhere. She's also up for Best Talk Show Host, with the same nominees and also Lisa Rinna, who apparently hosts something called Soap Talk.

The shows up for Best Soap are Guiding Light, The Young and the Restless, One Life To Live, and The Bold and the Beautiful. Bob Barker got a nomination for The Price Is Right. His last day on that show is in June.

Oh, and that Today Show "It's a New Day" theme? It got a nom too.

Here is the full list of nominees.

Dancing with the Stars goes on the road

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 28th 2006 6:37PM
drew lachey; dancing with the starsDancing with the Stars is getting a roadshow. Celebrities paired with real dancers will tour 38 U.S. cities, starting with San Diego on Dec. 19th. Celebrity contestants include Drew Lachey, Joey Lawrence, Willa Ford, Harry Hamlin (what?!?), Lisa Rinna and Joey McIntyre.

Why would anyone want to see this live? Absent-mindedly watching this on a Tuesday night is one thing... but actually paying cash to see mediocre dancers? American Idol does the same thing-- it sends mediocre singers on an American tour each year. I think the difference is the demogaphics.

Would you pay to watch Dancing with the Stars if they visited your town?

Oxygen gets ready to Tease

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 21st 2006 1:03PM
lisa rinnaProduction has just begun on a new competition series for the Oxygen network that will pit hairstylists against one another in an attempt to go one-on-one with a famous hairstylist. The new series, hosted by SoapTalk's Lisa Rinna, is called Tease. Robert Verdi of E! and Style will judge the competitions along with salon owner Peter Ishkahns and booking agent Frank Moore. Six episodes of the new series are currently in production and slated to air in January. I'm clearly not the target audience for this new series, since to me the only thing more boring than getting my hair cut is watching someone else have their hair styled. Then again, if the series is as frantic as they're making it out to be, maybe we'll see a lot of accidental head stabs, third degree burns and eye punctures. If that's the case, then I may have an excuse to tune into Oxygen for the first time since that network debuted.
