New TV DVDs for March 9: 'Hannah Montana,' 'Walker, Texas Ranger' and More

by Scott Harris, posted Mar 9th 2010 1:00PM
With the Oscars airing this week (and by all accounts putting most of America to sleep), it's no surprise that the DVD market is dominated by Oscar nominated films looking to capitalize on free publicity. That in turn my help explain why this week's array of TV DVDs is comprised almost entirely of classic (and not-so-classic) shows form the distant past. After all, the DVD market is a lot like an MMA fight: you have to pick your spots.

There is one bright spot for people under the age of 40, though, and that's Miley Cyrus, who has a little bit of Oscar hype herself after somewhat inexplicably appearing on the telecast as a presenter. Whether or not that cameo will help boost sales of 'Hannah Montana: Miley Says Goodbye' is uncertain, but chances seem slim. After all, by the time the Oscars ended, most 'Hannah Montana' fans had been in bed for hours.

Check out this fan-made YouTube video that finds Hurley (Jorge Garcia) exploring the island set to Cyrus' hit song 'Party in the USA.'

Check out the video after the jump.

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 16th 2010 10:30AM
Kids have notoriously strange taste. Some kids, for instance, enjoy peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. Barney is a perennial favorite. And few things will gets kids as excited as a chance to play with a cardboard box. Now you can add another choice to the list: Kevin James.

Yes, according to PEOPLE, the rotund comedian will be hosting Nickelodeon's 23rd Annual Kids' Choice Awards, which is set to air on Mar. 27. James, who as host will be in line for the traditional full body slime regimen, was effusive about the honor, stating "hosting the Kids' Choice Awards completes me."

Hannah Montana no more

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 9th 2010 2:05PM
Hannah MontanaThe Disney Channel has confirmed that this upcoming fourth season of the popular tween sitcom Hannah Montana will be the last. The final season will have guest-stars such as Ray Liotta and Two and a Half Men's Angus T. Jones.

Gee, what was the first clue that this would be the final season, Disney? Was it Miley Cyrus' increasing star power? Was it her singing career (which is for Disney records so it's not like the relationship is ending)? Was it the fact that she's getting older and before too long won't be able to pass for a high school student anymore? Or is she just fed up with the role?

Watch Kathy Griffin's Balls of Steel in November

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 15th 2009 10:03PM
Kathy_Griffin_BravoIt's been too long since Kathy Griffin has been on Bravo! My Life on the D-List ended in August, but it seems much longer since we've had some Griffin humor. That drought will end next month. On November 3, Bravo will air Kathy Griffin's new stand-up special, Balls of Steel.

I'm smiling already. Kathy is hilarious, by far the funniest woman on Bravo... and unlike the females on the Real Housewives, she is intentionally funny. Her stand up concerts are especially well-done because she gets to really dish about pop culture, skewering the likes of Oprah, Rosie, Cher, Paris, et al.

Sex and the City 2: movie spoilers

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Oct 12th 2009 9:02AM
Sex and the CityAlmost a year ago, it was announced that there would be a movie sequel for the hit TV series Sex and the City. It took years for producers and actresses to agree to a first movie, but a few months to decide a sequel was needed. Then again, with the popularity of the Sex and the City movie, it was inevitable that a sequel would follow.

Production is underway for the movie, set to be released at the end of May 2010, which means spoilers are leaking on the web! As expected, all four main ladies are back. But what is in store for them? Who, besides the ladies, will star in the movie?

Spoilers coming up!

Dancing with the Stars: Performance 1 Results

by Michael Pascua, posted Sep 24th 2009 1:10AM
Ashley Hamilton and his partner Edyta Sliwinska

(S09E03) Two nights, two eliminations, and a lot of unnecessary crap until the eliminations. Thus is the Dancing with the Stars elimination process. And we're live. Unfortunately, no outbursts from Macy Gray tonight.

Encore performance Kelly & Louis – Viennese Waltz – One thing that I loved about the performance was the way that they incorporated the dress into the performance. It still brings Sharon chills.

After a quick recap of the women's performance last night. The eliminations begin with the men first. The first two couples safe are Louie & Chelsie and Aaron & Karina.

The Jay Leno Show: Robin Williams

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 17th 2009 12:09AM
Robin Williams on The Jay Leno Show"I guess obviously you've downsized. You had to sell the desk." -- Robin Williams

Leno's had a couple of nights now to get a feel for what kind of show he wants to do, and figure out how to stay relevant in prime time. Most of the feedback that I've seen from people who saw it hasn't been very positive. They're disappointed that it feels so much like The Tonight Show.

If one of the ways he's trying to differentiate himself is by having longer comedy bits and fewer guests, then I think that's backfiring a bit because every single comedy video he's shown has gone on way, way too long. It's as if they're trying to create internet viral-worthy videos like Saturday Night Live has with their "Digital Shorts," but they're missing the mark.

Disney holds its first ever Disney Con

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 14th 2009 11:30AM
The Walt Disney CompanyDisneyland hosted its own Disney Convention, called D23, in the style of Comic Con this past weekend. The name comes from the year Walt Disney moved to Hollywood and the event was held at the Anaheim Convention Center across the street from Disneyland . Among other announcements was that of a new Muppet movie called The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made (hopefully it's a working title). There was also a live performance by Miley Cyrus, whom Disney owns the soul of.

Admittedly, it's a pretty good idea which caters to the real Disney enthusiasts out there (having met a few, I know they certainly exist). Disney is one of the few companies that is large enough to have its own version of Comic Con. While the convention had announcements for most of its franchises, I noted the absence of any mention of the recently-acquired Marvel Comics.

On the other hand, the company already has a Disney convention open all year round. It's called Disneyland (or Disneyworld for the East Coast). What do you think of this development?

Disney Channel's president loves the gay Miley Cyrus video spoof

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 29th 2009 8:29AM
The video below features a group of gay dudes in speedos dancing on the beach to Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA." And Disney loves it.

Seriously. In a surprising move, Disney, who owns Miley's music (as well as her soul), has allowed the video to become a hit on YouTube, and Disney employees have reportedly been e-mailing it to each other all week. It even got the seal of approval from Rich Ross, the president of Disney Channels Worldwide. Mr. Ross recently placed a phone call to the maker of the video, Esquire marketing exec Dave Fudge, just to tell him he "loved it."

VH1 Divas returns with Paula Abdul as host

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 26th 2009 11:02AM
Paula AbdulI'll admit I have no way of knowing what Paula Abdul's thinking at any given time. Even people who listen to her talk generally have no idea what she's thinking. You have to figure that after negotiating to join So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With the Stars and Ugly Betty, Adbul hosting the latest VH1 Divas special on Thursday, September 17 is a bit of a let-down.

It's a great nab for VH1; people will be curious to see her first post-Idol gig. You can even argue that the choice makes sense, considering the concert will feature two former American Idol winners: Kelly Clarkson and Jordin Sparks. Joining them are Adele, Leona Lewis and Miley Cyrus. It doesn't take nearly as much to be a diva these days.

It'll be fun watching Abdul try to steer an entire show rather than just a single coherent sentence of criticism. Who knows, maybe she'll find out that she's great at this and she can take over VH1 the way Ryan Seacrest took over E!. As long as they don't do a Who's That Girl? series with male skanks like Corey Clark trying to date her.

Exclusive! Keith Olbermann is not dead

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jul 1st 2009 8:25AM
Keith OlbermannKeith Olbermann! Come on down! You're the next TV celebrity whose death has been falsely reported on the Internet!

The MSNBC Countdown's Wikipedia page reported he had died earlier this morning, possibly due to complications from celiac disease.

I sent emails to two networks officials to confirm this jarring claim. Jeremy Gaines, MSNBC's vice president of communications, responded that he is certain the entry is a "hoax" and that he and other network officials were working to correct it. The section on Olbermann's death has since been removed from the page.
