Friends With BenefitsAfter being shelved for many months, NBC's 'Friends With Benefits' finally has a premiere date.

The rom-com series starring Danneel Ackles, Ryan Hansen and more (not to be confused with the Justin Timberlake/Mila Kunis movie opening later this month, which is not to be confused with the Ashton Kutcher/Natalie Portman movie from earlier this year) will debut on the network June 25.

According to Deadline, NBC will air back-to-back episodes on Saturday nights from 8-9PM. Ouch.

'Minute to Win It' - Beauty Queens Eat Cookies Without Using Their Hands (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 24th 2010 12:46AM
'Minute to Win It' - Beauty Queens Eat Cookes Without Using Their HandsYou might not think that Oreo cookies could be sexy. But then, you may not have watched the latest episode of 'Minute to Win It' (Mon., 8PM ET on NBC). A group of former Miss USA and Miss Universe winners appeared on the game show, and one of their challenges was to eat an Oreo -- without using their hands.

The cookie was placed on top of the women's eyes ... and then they had to move it down to their mouths. So they winked, twitched, and wiggled in order to win the contest. Cookie-eating has seldom seemed so alluring before. The former Miss Puerto Rico got the cookie in her mouth first -- she attributed her victory to a lack of Botox, which made her face more flexible. Good to know!

NBC Signs 3-Year Nuptials With 'Miss Universe,' 'Miss USA'

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 9th 2010 12:11AM
NBC is fond of 'Miss Universe' and 'Miss USA': The network has struck a new three-year deal with the Miss Universe Organization and Donald Trump to continue to broadcast the pageants, beginning in 2011, according to a report in Entertainment Weekly.

Last year's 'Miss USA' averaged around 5 million viewers, a record low for the pageant, but scored high on the buzz meter because of Carrie Prejean (Miss California) and her comments on gay marriage. The 2009 'Miss Universe' contest pulled in 5.9 million viewers, an improvement over previous outings.

The Jay Leno Show: Chris Rock

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 2nd 2009 3:35AM
Chris Rock with Jay Leno
Jay Leno's sit-down with Chris Rock on Thursday's show felt like it didn't really need Jay. Chris was just doing his act, which is fine since he's a comedian. If Joe the Plumber was just doing his stand-up act on Jay's chairs, that would be another story, and quite possibly another universe.

But as another great talk show producer once said, "A host with less talent would have interrupted him."

Rock's comedy was on the money, an expected bit of entertainment from a man who knows more about comedy and writing than you or I ever will. His bit about recently arrested film director Roman Polanski was particularly funny, especially since it's starting to become "The Michael Jackson Death Coverage 2: Electric Bugaloo" on the press. That's what late night is supposed to do: soften the blows the real world brings.

Miss California USA files a lawsuit

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 1st 2009 3:00PM
Carrie PrejeanCarrie Prejean, aka Miss California USA (yes, apparently there is a difference between Miss California and Miss California USA, which is more information I ever thought I'd know about these pageants) has filed a lawsuit against two pageant officials.

You may remember that Prejean caused an uproar back in April when moron Perez Hilton asked her a question about gay marriage at the MIss USA Pageant. Prejean was fired a couple of months later for violating her contract and not appearing at several pageant events. Prejean says that pageant officials Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler really got rid of her because of what she said during the show and because she talked a lot about God.

Donald Trump hasn't made a statement about this yet, but I'm sure he will.

Keith Olbermann takes on Miss California

by Bob Sassone, posted May 13th 2009 6:09PM
First let me say that this is NOT a "political" post. I'm posting this video because it concerns something that happened on television recently that has somehow consumed all of the local and national newscasts (and it's a beauty pageant, of all things). It features MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and his take on the whole Miss California (Carrie Prejean) controversy. It's an interesting video essay. I think that Prejean can think whatever she wants to think and Perez Hilton is kind of a moron. I also think that Olbermann gets in a few good points.

Sit Down Shut Up'Sit Down, Shut Up'
(Sun., 8:30PM, Fox) series premiere
It's not the return of 'Arrested Development,' but there are plenty of familiar voices in this new 'toon from 'Arrested' creator Mitch Hurwitz.

The show revolves around the wacky faculty members of Knob Haven High, a northeast high school with money issues, ornery students and teachers with plenty of angst of their own.

Among them: Will Arnett as bodybuilder/English teacher Ennis Hofftard, Jason Bateman as gym teacher Larry Littlejunk, Kenan Thompson as Principal Sue Sezno (who always "says no"), Will Forte as Vice Principal Proszakian, who uses the drugs he confiscates from students' lockers, and Henry Winkler as suicidal German teacher Mr. Deutschebog.

Miss USA wants to be a reporter - and a model! - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 24th 2007 3:05PM

Miss USA PageantWe've been getting a lot of wisdom and insight from our beauty pageant contestants lately. First was the solution to our lack of maps/Africa/the Iraq situation uttered so eloquently by Miss Teen South Carolina, and now we have Miss USA Rachel Smith, who explained what she wants to do with her career in front of the Women In Entertainment Empowerment Network (WEEN?):

"I always wanted to be a reporter - maybe some TV. Who knows? Some serious news - but some modeling, too...I just don't want to end up like Katie Couric. I want people to take me seriously."

Trump bringing Pageant Place to MTV

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 21st 2007 6:41PM

tara connerTrump is pure energy, and he cannot be destroyed.

That's the only explanation I can come with as to why the man will not leave my television. Now that The Apprentice is through, the Donald is developing yet another reality series, this time for MTV.

The new series, Pageant Place, will feature former Miss USA Tara Conner (whom Trump forgave for her "party girl" lifestyle that almost cost her the crown) sharing an apartment with several beauty pageant winners (Miss Universe Riyo Mori, Miss USA Rachel Smith and Miss Teen USA Katie Blair) as she teaches them how to behave like proper pageant winners. New beauty queens will replace the old ones as the series progresses through its eight-episode order. I just hope Conner and Blair can keep their hands off one another.

The series is expected to debut on MTV sometime later this year.

Conner to host new version of Singled Out?

by Adam Finley, posted May 10th 2007 4:02PM

tara connerRumors are abound that former Miss USA Tara Conner may be hosting an updated version of Singled Out, the popular match-making game that aired on MTV in the '90s and was hosted by Jenny McCarthy and Chris Hardwick (Carmen Electra later took McCarthy's place on the series). The original series had a group of fifty men and fifty women who were slowly whittled down to one person based on the preferences of the contestant, who could not see the other players.

All we know right now is that Conner has been chosen for a new project at MTV. Whether or not it's an updated version of Singled Out is unknown.
