Seth MacFarlane Does an Animated "Priceline Negotiator!" Ad

As you can tell from Jason's weekly Sundays with Seth wrap-ups, Seth MacFarlane is taking over the media. He's even doing animated ads. Here's one for Priceline that features William Shatner fighting William Shatner.

Personally I think the live-action Priceline ads are funnier (live-action Shatner is funnier than cartoon voice Shatner - besides, the live action ads are cartoonish already), but the little comedy short that follows is amusing (probably because I love dogs).

Shatner signs up for new show

ShatnerNow that James Brown is gone, maybe we can give William Shatner the title "the hardest-working man in show business."

I mean, he's on Boston Legal, he does those Priceline commercials, appears in movies like Dodgeball, he has his own web site, he hosts game shows. Hell, he even sold his own kidney stone! And now he has signed up for a new show titled Shatner's Raw Nerve. It will air on the Biography Channel. Shatner will interview celebrity and political guests. The show will run for 13 episodes to start.

This could be fun, if they let Shatner be Shatner and write his own questions. This is all part of Biography Channel's change to "true stories about fascinating people." Huh. Hasn't that been their goal all along with a name like Biography Channel?

Captain Kirk to boldly host a game show

William ShatnerWilliam Shatner is becoming the next Regis Philbin. He's everywhere!

Besides appearing on Boston Legal, many different commercials (Priceline, DirecTV, ads for attorneys) and writing books and having a web site, he's just signed to host a new game show for ABC titled Show Me The Money. The game will involve contestants answering trivia questions for a prize of $1 million.

Sigh. Hey, I like game shows, but I fear the success of Deal Or No Deal will push out scripted shows (or, on the flip side, good game shows will be so popular the networks will run them into the ground by having them on 2, 3, 4 times a week). And if they are going to have a game show, why use an already cliche line from some movie from the 90s?
