It's been a good week for Barbra Streisand. Her new CD, Love Is the Answer, debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 chart, beating out Mariah Carey, Madonna and Paramore. Not bad for a lady who had her first chart-topper in 1964 with People. Well, tonight on BBC America, you'll have a chance to hear Streisand talk about the CD and sing two songs from it as well. Friday Night With Streisand & Ross airs on tonight at 9 p.m. on BBC America, a special edition of the UK talk show starring Jonathan Ross.

(S01E06)
It occurred to me while watching Glee that this episode might have been called "When Worlds Collide" because that's what happened. Terri's insinuation into Will's world, McKinley High, was catastrophic on many levels. Sue Sylvester proved again that she has more on her mind than Cheerios and dreams of hovercrafts. More after the jump.

Second copyright lawsuit news of the day: Ellen!

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 11th 2009 10:41AM
EllenHmmm, maybe Ellen doesn't know a lot about music.

Right on the heels of Ellen being named as the replacement judge for Paula Abdul on American Idol comes this news: she's being sued by various record companies. You know the segment at the start of the show where Ellen dances onstage and often in the audience? Yup, it looks like she's been playing those songs illegally (over 1000 times), and the record companies don't like it.

What's interesting is that the spokesman for TelePictures (they produce Ellen's show) says they've been trying to work with the record companies for months to get a resolution to the issue.

America's Got Talent: Results show three

America's Got Talent(S04E18) "The most electrifying show yet!" - Nick, about last night's performance show

Nick is right. Last night was electrifying, even if a few acts got X'd. It was one of the best show's we've had so far this season.

As I noted in my review of the performance episode, I expected Jeffrey Ou to lose some votes because viewers weren't able to hear him play the piano in the second part of his acts. But a few of our site visitors said they voted for him because he wasn't given a fair chance.

Will Jeffrey get another chance by moving on to the Top 20? Results coming up!

America's Got Talent: Performance show three

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Aug 19th 2009 12:25AM
America's Got Talent(S04E17) A lot of you sounded off in comments to my "Results show two" post last week, either to complain about the judges putting through Tony Hoard and Rory over Charles, or to give your two cents about what the show should change when it returns next summer for a fifth season.

One thing is certain; most fans are not happy with how season four is going, and most are pointing fingers at the judges. Sharon and David especially seem to check their judgment at the door when it's time to make certain decisions, don't you agree?

This week, we were treated with the second to last Top 48 performance show of the "greatest talent competition on Earth," America's Got Talent. Most of the acts definitely delivered the goods tonight. Do you think America and the judges will pick the right five acts to move to the Top 20 this week? My comments about this week's performances coming up!

Felicia Day ... the next American Idol?

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 18th 2009 10:05AM
Felicia DayFelicia Day has already proven herself a terrific singer through her role on Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog. Now she's extending her talent resumé via her own project, The Guild, by having the cast of that show appear in a pop video for a song called "Do You Want To Date My Avatar?"; she's also the lead singer. Ms. Day may very well be the next Kylie Minogue.

It's rare for a U.S. production to release a music single in conjunction with a show, however Felicia herself created this show and if she wants to use it to launch her singing career, then more power to her. Why do I envision this group doing a live concert at the next San Diego Comic Con?

How soon before Ms. Day is the star of her own television drama or comedy? Nerd boys: she's hot, she sings and she plays MMORPGs. Admit that you want her. Video is after the jump.

What the hell is going on with ABC World News with Charles Gibson?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 5th 2009 1:31PM
Charles GibsonI'm not sure if anyone else in the world is experiencing this, but every time I watch ABC World News with Charles Gibson, something happens that confuses and scares me a little.

During the commercials, the vocal track is completely silent, and all I hear is the music track.

Are you a Gleek?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 30th 2009 8:02PM
Gleek isn't an alien language or the newest cast member of The Real World. (Though it was the monkey sidekick on Super Friends). It's a geeky fan of Glee, FOX's musical dramedy series. Glee + geek = Gleek.

This works with other shows, too. If you're a geek about Lost, you're a Glost. If you're a geek about Chuck, then you're a Ghuck. If you're a geek about Greek, then you're a...Grreek? OK, so it doesn't always work.

Flight of the Conchords to release new album

Flight of the Conchords albumOh, my. This is just like Christmas! Christmas in July. It's been revealed that Flight of the Conchords will have a new album coming out from Sub Pop Records, featuring music from the second season of their HBO series. It's called "I Told You I Was Freaky."

Despite the fact that season two didn't pack quite the bite that the first did, we're getting "Carol Brown" and "Too Many Dicks (On the Dance Floor)," and that's all that really matters.

Teens aren't into TV, newspapers, radio, or Twitter (but they love texting)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 13th 2009 6:27PM
retro tvI'm always cynical about these studies that show what teens aren't into, but this study was actually done by a 15 year-old, so maybe it's a lot closer to the truth.

He's a intern at Morgan Stanley, and he says that teens today aren't really into TV (beyond watching their favorite shows for a season), they'd rather download music than listen to the radio, and they don't read newspapers at all because it's "wicked stupid." OK, they didn't say that, but they find newspapers too long. They also don't like Twitter. They'd rather update their Facebook page (makes sense - Facebook is more passive, like a web site; you have to really be involved with Twitter).

So this poll is only for the teens out there reading this.

How do you watch TV?
I love it and watch it every single day287 (46.4%)
I watch it a lot73 (11.8%)
I only watch my favorite shows and that's it213 (34.4%)

MTV kind of, sort of does something music-related again

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 3rd 2009 9:10PM
The VeronicasThere's good news and there's bad news. You can decide what bits fall into which catergory. First of all, MTV is still on the air and pumping out new show after new show. Secondly, they've announced a new music-related project. This music-related project also happens to be another one of their reality programs. And it features the tween world's favorite Australian electropop-rock twin act The Veronicas.

Well, at least it's not another Laguna Beach spin-off spin-off.

Boyle's bubble burst as she comes up short on Britain's Got Talent

by John Scott Lewinski, posted May 31st 2009 9:41AM
Susan Boyle came up just short in her final appearance on Britain's Got Talent.She dreamed a dream, but Susan Boyle's rags to riches attempt to win the top prize on Britain's Got Talent came up just short this weekend.

Diversity, a dance troupe, edged out the Scot on the season's climactic episode. Her seemingly tragic and unjust end seems almost poetically concocted as Boyle sang "I Dream a Dream" for her final number on the show (the same song that stunned audiences the night she appeared on the scene).

But, Boyle was gracious in defeat, offering a nod to the young performers who beat her out: "They're very entertaining. Lads, I wish you all the best."

Her defeat comes after a week of controversy as Boyle allegedly laid into multiple reported victims with expletive laced tirades. Her behavior offered the British tabloid press the perfect opportunity to claim she was cracking under the pressure and was out of her depth as a performer. No one will ever know for sure if that bad press cost her the crown.

NBC's new show: man loses job and girlfriend, gains a soundtrack

NBC logoHey, if CBS can have a Game Show In My Head, NBC can have music.

The network has given the go-ahead to a new show from All Of Us/Baby Bob writer Jared Bush titled Soundtrack. It's about a guy who loses his job and his girlfriend and then starts to hear the same song in his head over and over and over again. The song doesn't go away until he finds what meaning it has in his life. Then the next episode has him hearing another song and he'll have to find out what that meaning is too.

House: Adverse Events

House: Adverse Events
(S05E03) "You know, people hate people who have theories about people..."

Ah, House, the more you change, the more you stay the same. Whether it be a new boss, a possible fling with Cameron, a new husband for your ex-wife, a cure for your limp, the loss of your best friend, or Jodie Foster's dad from Contact, you always get right... up... to... the precipice of actual change... before you revert back to the same old misanthrope we all know and love.

Here's the thing, though: House might not change, but darned if the writers aren't geniuses at shaking up the supporting cast around him. Love it or hate it, tonight's episode was the solidification of the new direction we're headed in this season. So, what do you think of Lucas?
