'Kimmel': Tom Arnold Tried to Save Peter Criss from Drugs and Homelessness (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 15th 2011 6:11AM
Tom Arnold, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Fresh out of rehab, Tom Arnold was on top of the world. More importantly, he was ready to pay it forward. As he told 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), he took a tip from 'The National Enquirer' and tracked down Peter Criss. The tabloid said the KISS drummer was homeless in Santa Monica.

As his story progressed, we started to anticipate the inevitable punchline, but the way it came about was still deliciously twisted. Arnold put Criss up in a motel room and checked in on him periodically, trying to help the guy get cleaned up and maybe get into rehab.

But then his old girlfriend from Boston wanted to take care of him. The two battled it out until one day Criss was gone from the motel. The girlfriend had had him brought to her.

Roseanne Barr Never 'Stabbed' Tom Arnold, Counters Lie with Harsh Verbal Jab (VIDEO)

Roseanne Barr Talks Tom Arnold on 'Lopez Tonight'Inquiring minds (instigated by George Lopez) wanted to know: Did Roseanne Barr really stab Tom Arnold? The host of 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS) said that Arnold claimed he and Barr were offered $10 million by Jenny Craig to lose weight together. "It's already a lie," Barr interjected.

Supposedly, as Barr snacked on some cookies in the middle of the night, Arnold grabbed the bag from her. "You grabbed the knife, and stabbed him in the chest," said Lopez. "That is such a lie," said Barr. "He should stick to what he does best -- taking pills and hosting sobriety events."

Tom Arnold on Having Kids, Arnold Schwarzenegger and How Roseanne Saved His Life

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 29th 2010 3:00PM
Tom Arnold in his new Showtime specialTom Arnold seems to be one of those guys who's been hanging around the edges of the entertainment business forever. It's been over 20 years since he made his first big splash on 'Roseanne,' a time period where his marriage to superstar Roseanne Barr got even more publicity than the hit sitcom did.

Now, at 51 and married for the fourth time -- he's confident that this one will stick -- Arnold has decided to go back to his stand-up roots to tell some of the crazy stories from his life.

'Tom Arnold: That's My Story And I'm Sticking To It' is his first-ever stand-up special, debuting on New Year's Eve at 9PM ET on Showtime. In the special, Arnold talks about what he euphemistically calls his "first marriage" along with tidbits about being friends with the governor of California -- let's just say that he and Arnold Schwarzenegger found out that having guy talk on government-owned phones is a bad idea -- and things he's learned from his previous wives.

In a wide-ranging interview from earlier this month, Arnold and I talked about the special, his marriage to Roseanne, what it was like to go back to the stand-up world, if he thought Schwarzenegger got a fair shake as governor and what's on his career and life bucket lists.

If the following story isn't a sign that things weren't meant to work out between Tom Arnold and Roseanne Barr, we don't know what is. On 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated), Arnold recalled a time when his ex-wife stabbed him, because he tried to keep her weight loss on track by crushing a bag of cookies she was in the process of eating.

Tom Arnold Talks Roseanne Barr on 'Chelsea'When visiting 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Tom Arnold talked openly -- and positively -- about ex-wife Roseanne Barr. "How much money did you get from Roseanne [in the divorce]? Are you allowed to talk about that?" asked Chelsea Handler.

"It's public record: None," answered Arnold. "It was a choice because, you know, I had step-kids, and I wanted to be able to look myself in the mirror in a few years ... The truth is the woman, you know, she saved my life ... It's not that I'm such a super-duper nice guy, it's just the right thing to do."

'The Late Shift 2': Who Should Play Whom?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 15th 2010 11:06AM
News that New York Times reporter Bill Carter is working on a pseudo-sequel to his groundbreaking book The Late Shift' made a smile creep across my face. I haven't yet read the book, but the buzz it caused and the weird stories that came out of it just by word of mouth gave it an aura of mysterious wonder that made the television industry infinitely more fascinating than it already was.

It also spawned a pretty decent made-for-TV HBO movie. Now I don't know what kind of craziness "Round Two" has to offer, but the players involved are definitely going to have all sorts of wild secrets revealed from Carter's work and when it does, HBO is going to want the movie rights. So here's who should play who in this new tragic merry-go-round of television programming hilarity that shall be called 'The Late Shift 2'.

Review: Sons of Anarchy - Potlatch

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 28th 2009 9:28AM

"Pull the trigger man. That's the only way this leather is coming off my back." - Jax to Alvarez, the head of the Mayans who orders him to give up his club jacket

Jax is supposed to be the hero of this little modern day Shakesperian epic, but he's starting to look more and more like the enemy in each episode.

I don't mean that he'll be the one in the end who has been scheming the whole time behind SAMCRO's back with the white power. This is a well-crafted, slow paced, high caliber drama, not a badly written Schwarzenegger movie with a thrown together twist ending (cough, Total Recall, cough).

Jax is more of an enemy of himself. He might have good intentions at heart, but his moves are nowhere near his brain. Maybe his loyalty to his family runs deeper than he ever imagined. Logic and family hardly make a decent cocktail. Anyone with a brother-in-law can tell you that.

Sons of Anarchy: Small Tears

The Sons of Anarachy in their meeting room(S02E02) - "Unraveling the matriarch will destabilize them. They're all little boys who need a strong mommy."

The thing I'm starting to love about this show is the way it switches gears on just about any incline. They are so swift and sudden that the law should go totally "nanny state" and require me to wear a helmet during each week's episode.

For example: in this week's chapter, we see the aftermath of Gemma's rape and the toll it takes on her as she tries to keep it from the club. Then the very next shot is of Tig, played by Kim Coates and some random fishnet whore slowly waking up with hangovers that could stun an elephant, together in a spent 69.

And I ain't talking about a broken down '69 Chevy.

Sneak Peek: the Joan Rivers Roast

From this clip below, it looks like Rivers is going to give as well as she gets on the Joan Rivers Roast this Sunday at 10PM on Comedy Central. I also like how the celebs dump on other celebrities at the roast. That's a nasty but funny dig at Carl Reiner.

Last Comic Standing: Semi-finals round one

by Jay Black, posted Jul 18th 2007 11:57PM
How many weeks is this show? It feels like a million.(S05E06) When the fine editors here at TV Squad asked me to review Last Comic Standing I of course said yes, despite the fact I was worried criticizing my fellow comics would anger the all-important comedy gods. My easy capitulation proves what you all already know: I'm a people-pleasing simp who would dance a jig in high heels if I thought it would make people like me.

If you've been following my write-ups of the show these last few weeks, you know that I've done my best to avoid reviewing it based on the actual stand-up comedy. Well, we're at the point now where I can't hide anymore.

So, let's get reviewing (and please, comedy gods, forgive me)...

See a sneak peek of Thank God You're Here on YouTube - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 30th 2007 2:23PM

NBCThank God You're Here, an improvisational show in which celebrities must walk into the middle of a scene and try to ad lib their way through it, will air on NBC April 9, but you can check out a few clips of the show on YouTube right now, courtesy of NBC. I've placed a scene with Tom Arnold after the jump for your harsh judgment.

While I'm a huge fan of improv, having seen more than a few Second City performances, not to mention both the British and American versions of Whose Line is it Anyway? (the British one is better), I have to say that, based only on these short clips, Thank God You're Here lacks the cohesiveness and professionalism that made Whose Line so enjoyable. When I watched Whose Line, I knew the performers were professionals and could handle anything, but watching Jason Alexander and Tom Arnold struggle through their scenes just pulls me in too many directions: one moment I'm laughing and the next moment I'm worried the actors are just going to freeze up.

I think the show will be worth a look, but something tells me it won't be the most consistent comedy on television.
