'Extreme Makeover' -- Laughter Instead of Tears, as Comedians Help Out (VIDEO)

'Extreme Makeover' -- Laughter Instead of Tears, as Comedians Help Out'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC), promised a "tear-free" episode. And that's what we got ... almost. In place of the standard sob-fest, the producers guaranteed a completely upbeat show. To accomplish this, they enlisted a bunch of comedians -- including Cedric the Entertainer, Paul Rodriguez and Tommy Davidson.

The series went to Houston, Texas to help the Johnson family, whose house was damaged by Hurricane Ike. As a result of the hurricane, the locks in the Johnson's tiny home had to be opened with a screwdriver. But was just the start of the problems. The floor was rotting, the roof was caving in -- and the family had to eat off of paper plates ... because the weight of real plates would cause their shelves to collapse.

Newlywed Game and Dating Game coming back to TV

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 4th 2008 2:21PM

Newlywed GameI used to watch both The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game when I was a kid, and it wasn't until years later that I realized how filthy both of them were. Both would have all of these double entendres and suggestive questions, and the answers from the contestants were often something you wouldn't even say to a friend in private. Example from The Newlywed Game:

Bob Eubanks: "Where's the weirdest place that you and your husband have made whoopee?"
Woman: "In the a**?"

Now, this wasn't shown on TV until Eubanks showed the clip on an episode of NBC's Most Outrageous Moments a few years ago (the original answer was never shown on TV and the woman was given a chance to give another answer, and another contestant gave a similar answer years earlier), but many of the questions and answers were suggestive in that way.

Leno confuses George Lopez and Paul Rodriguez

by Bob Sassone, posted May 3rd 2007 1:39PM

LenoBack in January, comedian George Lopez went on WOMX and told hosts Scott and Eric that Jay Leno is "the biggest two-faced dude on TV," "one of the worst interviewers on TV," and a "backstabber." So when Leno saw Lopez at The Laugh Factory's salute to Richard Jeni (who committed suicide earlier this year), he wanted to bury the hatchet with him. The two started talking, and Leno wanted to find out why he said those things.

One problem: it wasn't George Lopez, it was Paul Rodriguez!

As if that's not embarrassing enough (Leno has known Rodriguez for 30 years!), but Leno's explanations were lame too. First he said he didn't have his contacts in, and then he said he was confused because he was upset over Jeni's death.

Ouch.

Last Comic Standing: The final two perform

Last Comic Standing logo(S04E10) So today marks the "start" of the LCS season finale. Why is it just the start? Because, since the final two had to perform tonight, we have to see the results somehow, right? So, tomorrow, we'll get to watch -- get this -- a 90 minute selection show. Lovely. Sixty-six minutes of show for something that takes about 30 seconds to announce. Nothing says "unnecessary crap" like the phrase "reality selection show."

But more on that later. For the half-hour before we learned who was going home, we got to hear a stand-up set by Paul Rodriguez, the sets from the final two comics in the online competition and... some real, live comedy from Anthony Clark! Not that it was all that good, but at least he didn't look like he wanted to throw up, like he has for the entire series.
