Tony Hawk Surprises a Cancer-Stricken ChildPro skateboarder Tony Hawk was on the latest episode of 'The Doctors' (weekdays, syndicated) to talk to a fan -- a young boy named Justin in Hershey, Pa., who is suffering from cancer.

Justin has apparently had two bouts with cancer, and his strength shines through in a videotaped message to other children with the disease: "So if you hear this, cancer kids -- be strong, don't be scared, have courage, and fight the cancer."

Watch the video after the jump.

What You Missed On Friday: the greatest skateboard trick ever

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 1st 2009 12:08PM
It's not every night that a TV viewer gets to witness history in the making, but that's what happened on Friday when Tony Hawk did an amazing in-studio skateboard trick on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Not only does the audience look stunned, but fellow guest Justin Long looks like he's about to freak out. Well done, Tony. (Video also here, for now anyway.)

Bill MaherIconoclasts is one of those shows where I always say, "hey, that sounds kinda cool, I gotta watch that...when is it on again?" and then I promptly forget to watch it or even set my TiVo. But this year's lineup sounds like something that will make me remember.

The Sundance Channel show returns in October with these episodes: Bill Maher and Clive Davis; Jon Favreau and Tony Hawk; Venus Williams and Wyclef Jean; Stella McCartney and artist Edward Ruscha; Cameron Diaz and architect Cameron Sinclair; and Richard Branson and Desmond Tutu.

Million Dollar Password -- An early look

Million Dollar Password
Here's the thing about game show revivals: you have to satisfy people on two levels. For fans of the old show, you have to make the gameplay of the new show familiar enough to keep them happy and coming back. And, in order to attract new fans, you have to modernize and add touches that will suck in viewers and help build drama. That's one of the reasons why most new game shows have Who Wants to Be a Millionaire-style darkened sets with swirling lights, and depend on ominous music and tight camera angles to create drama.

Million Dollar Password, premiering Sunday at 8 PM ET, has all of that. They even nabbed Millionaire's original American host, Regis Philbin, to give it that extra bit of primetime oomph. But does it work? Well... sorta. Fans of the Allen Ludden / Tom Kennedy / Bert Convy incarnations might be dissatisfied with what they've done to their old favorite, but even an objective observer can see that the gameplay has some flaws that are going to need to be worked out for the show to succeed.

Bam Margera weds; Vincent Margera stands trial

by Julia Ward, posted Feb 6th 2007 11:14AM
Bam Margera and Don VitoIt was a busy week at the Margera estate. Vincent "Don Vito" Margera, Bam's uncle and co-star on Viva La Bam, was ordered to stand trial on felony charges that he groped three girls at a public appearance. If convicted, Uncle Don could face up to six years in prison. That's unfortunate news so let's move on to the good stuff.

Professional jackass Bam got married to childhood pal Missy Rothstein this weekend. The couple wed in front of 350 friends, family and MTV crew members. The wedding will be televised in April as the culminating episode of forthcoming reality show Bam's Unholy Union. Putting in appearances at the wedding were Tony Hawk and James Iha, formerly of the Smashing Pumpkins. Best of all, Iggy Pop performed as part of the festivities. Hot damn. That so beats hiring a fallen American Idol to play at your bar mitzvah. Do you think the bride came down the aisle to "I Wanna Be Your Dog" or "Search and Destroy?"
