WB and Sleuth add shows to iTunes

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 25th 2006 1:01PM
flintstonesThe TV Addict picked up on some cool news this morning. The WB has added a handful of shows to iTunes for your downloading pleasure, including classic cartoons like The Flintstones and The Jetsons, as well as live-action shows including Friends, Babylon 5, MadTV, and the unaired pilot of Aquaman. In addition, the Sleuth Channel has added Miami Vice, The A-Team, Dragnet, and Knight Rider. Last but not least, you can watch the entire first episode of Tabloid Wars for free, just in case you missed the premiere on Bravo last night. I think shows like Friends and MadTV are probably in heavy enough rotation in syndication, but it would be nice to see more "retro" shows and old cartoons pop up in the future.

Colin Farrell's stalker confronts him on Leno's stage

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 21st 2006 7:07PM
colin farrellYikes. Stalkers are scary. And this story is convoluted so stay with me. According to Access Hollywood, a woman jumped up on stage during The Tonight Show with Jay Leno during taping yesterday to confront Colin Farrell, who was promoting Miami Vice. The woman is... um... crazy. She sued Farrell because she said that he was stalking her with inappropriate phone calls and text messages. The case was thrown out.

As Farrell walked out on stage yesterday to greet Jay, she walked to him and attempted to talk to him. Of course, Tonight Show security took care of her. Supposedly, she left a copy of her book, Colin Farrell: A Dark Twisted Puppy on Leno's desk. As she was dragged out of the studio, she shouted, "I'll see you in court." Farrell replied, "You're insane."

*UPDATE: After the incident, Farrell obtained a restraining order against crazy woman.

NBC to air original Miami Vice pilot

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 5th 2006 11:00AM
miami viceI never would have thought a show about a couple of narcs could have been so popular, but Miami Vice proved me wrong. Speaking of Miami Vice, I'm sure you've all heard of the upcoming film based on the popular television series starring Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas as two undercover agents who mix t-shirts and suit jackets like it's no one's business. In celebration of the new flick, NBC will be re-broadcasting the original two-hour pilot as part of a three-hour event called Miami Vice: Undercover which will also include a featurette about the upcoming movie from director Michael Mann. Stars Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell will host the special, which airs on July 22 at 8 p.m.

Knight Rider just says no to Hasselhoff

by Annie Wu, posted May 11th 2006 3:28PM
David HasselhoffAfter the release of Dukes of Hazzard and the big-screen adaptations of Dallas and Miami Vice already in the works, perhaps you started thinking to yourself, "They should make Knight Rider a full-length feature." If so, you should probably start watching some television that isn't pushing 20 years. But still, you're in luck 'cause the Weinsteins have picked it up for some sweet ex-cop/talking Trans-Am action. Unfortunately for David Hasselhoff fans, this is yet another no-show (he's not included in the upcoming Baywatch movie either). As long as they bring Mr. Feeny back to voice KITT, I'll keep my protesting to a minimum.

Name Don Johnson's new baby

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2006 11:04AM
Don JohnsonDon Johnson and his wife Kelley welcomed their third baby into the world yesterday (hmmm ... right in the middle of TV Land's Miami Vice marathon!). The boy weighed seven pounds.

The baby hasn't been named yet (as of this writing), so let's think of a name for him, eh? You can't pick Apple, because Paltrow already took that one.

I vote for "Elvis." That was name of the Crockett's alligator.

The Five: Shows that should never be on the big screen

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 22nd 2006 3:06PM
Mary Tyler Moore and Dick Van DykeToday's news that Will Smith will play the Robert Wagner role in a remake of It Takes A Thief got me thinking: what shows should they never, never, ever, ever update and bring to the big screen? I'm tempted to say "most TV shows," but I'm talking about the five that they should never touch. Here's my list:

1. The Dick Van Dyke Show: Can you imagine this show on the big screen? How would they recreate the rhythm and pace of the show, the ensemble chemistry, the writing? If anyone even attempted to redo this show on the big screen, they should be dragged to the California border and banned from the state forever.

Don Johnson has another kid on the way

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 26th 2005 9:44AM
Don JohnsonDon Johnson and his wife Kelley have a third child on the way. Johnson, who starred in Miami Vice and Nash Bridges, married his current wife in '99 and the couple has 2 other children. Johnson also has children from two previous marriages. The couple's publicist said that the two were "thrilled." Well that's good... I'd be worried if the publicist said something like, "Don and his wife are extremely unhappy and have no idea what went wrong."

The last minute TV Squad Gift Guide

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 24th 2005 1:50PM

festivusAll you've got is hours left. Everyone else planned ahead, bought their gifts... probably even wrapped them already. And what are you doing? Sitting here reading this post. Nice job. So what are you going to do? Fight the crowds, scour the many picked over store shelves? There's not going to be much left. It happens to the best of us, and I should know because I plan on doing most of my shopping after I finish writing this. So what's going to be left? Not much, but here's a few things you might be lucky to find sitting next to the empty spaces where Lost Season 1 DVDs and SpongeBob memorabilia used to rest.

Now as I said, you're going to be lucky if these items are still around especially because I'm probably going to scoop them up before you. Honestly though, everyone wants these... I'm telling you, that Munsters calendar? This year's "Tickle me Elmo."
