Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini Imitate Drunken Fan on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini Imitate Drunken Fan on 'The Talk'It's probably not wise to mock your fans, but it sure makes for entertaining television. Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini imitate a drunken fan of Remini's on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated).

Peete said the fan was so inebriated that he incorrectly referred to Remini's show 'The King of Queens' and babbled nonsense phrases such as "cricker-croaker." Then, the man does a dance that Peete calls "The White Man's Overbite," which she's more than happy to recreate for the audience.

Fat Guys on Sitcoms Are ALWAYS (Pathetically) Trying to Lose Weight

by Patricia Chui, posted Jan 7th 2010 12:34PM
Jason AlexanderJason Alexander was just announced as the new Jenny Craig spokesperson, which is a pretty far cry from his old KFC-touting gig.

Do we want to see Alexander in a bikini? Hell, naw. But if there's any way his new attitude can help reverse the trend of fat guys starring in sitcoms (often with svelte, gorgeous wives -- seriously, what's up with that?), then we're all for it.

Of course, it's not as though those chubsters never tried to shed the pounds ... some more enthusiastically than others. Because you know what's more hilarious than a funny fat guy? A funny fat guy as he pathetically attempts to lose weight. Here's hoping Alexander has more success than these guys did.

Kevin James is returning to CBS, sort of

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 12th 2009 12:05PM
The King of QueensThe King of Queens is not returning to CBS. However, Kevin James is. He's performing in a series of interstitials on Monday night in an effort to promote his soon-to-be-released movie Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

Will this launch James to movie stardom? I don't know. He's following the title formula of such movies as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo, so we can probably guess the format and formula of the film.

Not every comedy TV star can make the transition to movies, and I don't know if Kevin James has the personality to hold a film on his own. It worked for Jim Carrey because of his wild, character-driven personality and it worked for Rob Schneider because...actually, I don't think it worked for Rob Schneider. If it did, I have no idea why.

It's interesting to note that Paul Blart is produced by Sony Pictures and The King of Queens was produced by Sony Pictures TV. Sony Pictures must own Kevin James' soul.

Worst Week -- An early look

Worst Week cast
Sam Briggs is a schlemiel. Everything that can go wrong in his life, every dumb thing a guy can do while trying to do the right thing, happens to Sam.

The preview of Worst Week (premiering Monday at 9:30 PM ET on CBS) has not changed dramatically from this ready-to-go pilot. The premise is simply this: can a good guy like Sam overcome all the stupid things he does and find happiness with the girl he loves and her family that loathes him?

For the pilot, Worst Week works really well as broad farce. The situation of this situation comedy goes from bad to worse to worse still. It's funny. It's over the top. It's very, very outrageous. Whether or not they can sustain this level of silliness and maintain some semblance of believability week in and week out is the big question for Worst Week.

Can she talk? Leah Remini in talks for a talk show

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 14th 2008 2:19PM
Rach and LeahQueen Latifah couldn't make it work. Megan Mullally struck out, too. In fact, if you think about it, more stars fail in their attempts to become talk show hosts than succeed. For every Ellen DeGeneres and Tyra Banks, there's a Caroline Rhea and Magic Johnson.

So, will sitcom star Leah Remini go from the King of Queens to the queen of daytime talk? CBS -- home of King of Queens for a very successful run from 1998-2007 -- is developing a daytime show for Leah Remini that's being called something different than a typical talk show.

If you tune in to The Rachael Ray Show today, you might get an idea of what Leah could bring to daytime -- she's Rach's guest.

Fifteen great New York TV shows

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 2nd 2008 11:23AM
New YorkNew York, New York -- a place so big that had to name it twice. Isn't that what they say about the Big Apple? Recently, movie critic Leonard Maltin, host of the ReelzChannel original series Secret's Out named his picks for the 15 greatest New York scenes in movie history. That got me thinking about the television shows that are intimately tied to New York, series that are inextricably New York shows. Whether they are -- or were -- filmed in the city, here's 15 absolutely, positively New York TV shows (in the order in which they debuted!). You don't have to agree with me -- and I may have overlooked one or two (which I urge you to comment and let me know) -- but I have good reasons for every one of my choices!

The seven coolest geeks on television

by Jay Black, posted Jul 6th 2007 11:06AM
I wish I was married to a Storm Trooper.Geeks get treated pretty badly in the media. Thanks to the fact that most people who get above-the-line credit in Hollywood are anything but geeky, when a script calls for a socially maladjusted character, it's almost always a terrible caricature of true geek culture. For years little geeklings only had the likes of Steve Urkel to look up to and that's not right (believe me, Jaleel White, when the geek revolution comes, you'll be the first one guillotined).

The fact that I'm about to become the father of my own little geek-spawn has led me to start looking around the current TV landscape, looking for appropriate geek role models. I was surprised to find so many...

Leah Remini to star in motherhood webisodes

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 17th 2007 2:44PM
in the motherhoodActress Leah Remini is moving to the internet for her next gig, now that The King of Queens is over. She'll star in a series of webisodes called In the Motherhood. It's an interesting premise, really. The episodes will be based on, or at least incorporate, consumer-generated stories about being a mom. It's all on this website, which is being promoted heavily on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. There's a video on the website where Remini asks moms to write in about their funny stories and then vote on the other stories that were submitted. The favorites will be written into episodes of In the Motherhood.

Right now, there are five episodes planned for a ten-week stretch starting on May 11.

The King of Queens' 200th episode same as the other 199... is that so bad?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 10th 2007 2:20PM
The King of QueensBelieve it or not, The King of Queens aired its 200th episode last night. They didn't do anything special to celebrate it. No guest stars, no plot twists, no revelations; Kevin James and company just did the same thing they've been doing since 1998, which is put on a funny show that will never be compared to The Office, but it won't be compared to According to Jim, either.

The plots? Doug and Carrie wonder how Deacon and Kelly can afford a vacation home when they can't, and do their best to try to find out. Also, Arthur coaches Spence in the art of finding a new job, then swoops in and steals a position Spence was looking to get. Nothing different than we haven't seen before, and the humor was the same: some laugh-out-loud moments, a few chuckle-worthy moments, mostly generated by the actors' timing and skill rather than the script itself.
