'Access Hollywood Live' Piles on an Inflatable Steelers Couch (VIDEO)

'Access Hollywood Live' tried to pop a Steelers couchBobby Bell, a promo director for 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), is a big Pittsburgh Steelers fan. So when Hines Ward and Kym Johnson were on the show Tuesday, he brought in his inflatable Steelers couch. Ward and Johnson made themselves comfortable on the couch, then host Billy Bush brought out Bell to sit with them as well.

From then on, it was a free-for-all. In the middle of the Royal Wedding Countdown, Gail O'Grady sat down, making four people, and then Bush and Kit Hoover joined in, making seven people on a couch meant for two. Bush was hoping they could bust the thing, and at one point started bouncing up and down, saying, "We gotta make this couch pop."

The couch proved too much for them, however. Hoover fell off and jumped back on, but to no avail. The couch wouldn't give. Maybe this will be a new feature on the show after the Royal Wedding Countdown ends -- "Couch Popping Pile Up."

American Idol: Modern Hits...or Misses?

by Lacy Hall, posted Mar 29th 2006 11:06AM

For lack of a better word or description, last night's show was weird and anti-climatic. At first, I was really excited about the contestants doing modern hits from the last 6 years, but then...nothing happened. I kept waiting for that one really great performance that would put the show into overdrive, but it never came.

First off, the show was cut down to a hour last night since there are only 10 contestants left. This made everything feel very rushed. It felt less like a national hit show and more like a filler before House came on. Secondly, all the judges were in agreement last night, and yet they were still fighting. Always weird. Thirdly, lack of time translated into lack of Seacrest zingers. Seacrest zingers are always the cheesiest of zings, and yet, I miss them when they're gone. It's like getting a dollar every year in your birthday card from Grandma. A dollar doesn't get you much (heck, it doesn't get you anything), but that first year when it's not in there...it burns. Finally, I think Kevin might have been eliminated prematurely. I'm convinced that if given the chance, he would have performed Britney Spears' "Toxic" and it would have been the best thing to happen to American Idol since Bobby sung the praises of the Copacabana.

Did the refs give the Super Bowl to the Steelers?

steelersIf you're looking for someone to make fun of, I'd like to offer myself up. See, I'm not a sports fan, and I'm so much "not a sports fan" that I didn't even know who was playing in the Super Bowl. Actually, who did play in the Super Bowl? Was it the Pistons and the Leafs? Anyway, on this day after the Big Game I've come across a couple of online rants claiming that the refs may have been a little too favorable toward the Steelers. So, sports fans, are they right? I'll let ya'll duke it out in the comments. If you need me I'll be in the corner playing with my action figures and getting beat up by the jocks.

The Daily Show: January 24, 2006

The Daily ShowCanadian elections. Stephen Harper won. Conservative, it is. In the end, the big question was "Can we still stitch their flags to our backpacks to get through Europe?" Well, Americans, if all else fails, we could always just tack on "eh?" at the end of our sentences and hope for the best.

After the sale of their SUVs dropped dramatically, Ford announced that the company will lay off 30,000 over the next six years. This happened the same week as the Time magazine cover with Bill Ford, in which he talked about the environment-focused plans of the company. Apparently, their newest creation will be an environmentally friendly car that will run "partly on gas, partly on electric, but mostly on the tears of unemployed workers' children".

Things I Hate About TV: Seeing Jared Fogle on the post-game show

Jared Fogle of SubwayYou all know Jared Fogle. He's the guy who lost thirty kajillion pounds by eating nothing but Subway sandwiches (veggie and turkey, of course... what, you think he lost weight on foot-long chicken parm subs?) and has basically been the chain's spokesman ever since. He's been an inspiration to a lot of people who are overweight. But, honestly, there are some places that I really don't want to see old Jared's smiling face.

One of them is on the post-game show after a thrilling NFL playoff game. Right after the Steelers stunned the Colts in a wild game, the CBS studio guys discussed the game and interviewed Steelers players. So far, so good. But then Greg Gumbel throws it over to Jared, dressed in a Colts jersey and surrounded by those flavorless Subway sandwiches. "I know you guys are going to Denver next week, and I wanted to send you off with some good food," is the gist of what Jared unconvincingly said to the studio crew as he waved his hand over the subs. Greeeaaat. Look, CBS, I know it's called the Subway Post-Game Show. But having Jared in the studio was completely tasteless and silly, especially after such an exciting playoff game. I mean, what's next? Is Boomer Esiason going to munch on Domino's Chicken Kickers during next week's pre-game show?
