Simon Cowell = Lemon! I Scowl

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 18th 2009 7:02PM
CowellHere's something that is going to take up most of your day.

Actually, it's not really new. It's an anagram site, and those have been popular on the web for years. But let's put a TV twist on it. As Whitney over at Pop Candy points out, David Letterman = Dead, Terminal TV. I don't happen to agree, but that's kinda funny. For the record, Jay Leno = Enjoy LA!

Paris Hilton = In His Patrol
Jon and Kate = Ant and Joke (doesn't really make sense but somehow fits)
Keith Olbermann = I'm The Rank Noble
Katie Couric = Ciao! Irk Cute
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire = Oh Wow! I'm A Brain On Satellite!

What can you come up with? Bob Sassone = So Base Snob

The Great American Singing Bee coming to NBC

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 3rd 2007 2:03PM

singingOf course, one "Great American Singing Bee" was already on NBC many, many years ago, but this is different.

The Great American Singing Bee is a new game show from producers Phil Gurin and Bob Horowitz, who will each produce different versions for American and UK television audiences. Contestants will be given lyrics to songs and asked to sing the missing words. This is very similar to an old family game called SongBurst, which was based on pretty much the exact same idea.

Adam's kooky lyric game

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 26th 2007 8:02AM

music notesOkay, so I was in the mood to create another fun TV game for y'all like I did with my "TV opposites" game, so here it is.

Below you will find altered lyric samples from TV themes that more or less mean the same thing as the original lyrics. For example, if I wrote:

One takes that which is affirmative, and also that which is negative
and puts these two opposing forces together
in conclusion, the result is the truth of all existence

Fun with TV "opposites"

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 29th 2006 7:06PM

patty duke showThis is a variation of a word game I sometimes play with my friends. Below I've listed a bunch of television shows, but instead of writing the actual name of the show, I've written the show's "opposite." I put "opposite" in quotations because obviously not all words have exact opposites, so I have to be clever sometimes and just come up with something that kind of fits. This makes it fun. Here are some examples:

The "opposite" of Taxi might be Bus.

The "opposite" of Everybody Hates Chris might be Nobody Loves Christie.

The "opposite" of General Hospital might be Specific Clinic.

The list is after the jump. See how many you can guess. You won't win anything, just bragging rights and a cameo appearance in my next sexual fantasy. Onward:

UPDATE: Congrats to everyone who has guessed correctly so far. There are still a few left, so crank up your brains, puzzle masters.

SECOND UPDATE: One more left.

THIRD UPDATE: They've all been guessed. Good job, everyone.

Scripps National Spelling Bee on ESPN and ABC today

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 1st 2006 9:58AM
lettersI didn't spend much time around sports as a kid, and never developed much of an interest in any kind of competitive event, so ESPN is one network that I rarely watch, unless they happen to be showing one of those occasional drill team or cheerleading competitions. I always find those quite compelling. Oh yeah, and ESPN's live coverage of the Scripps National Spelling Bee is always fun to watch, also. Today from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST you can catch ESPN's coverage of the final rounds of the event. Then, flip on over to ABC from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EST to watch the championship rounds. This is the first time this event has been shown in primetime on network television. Chris McKendry of SportsCenter will host the ESPN coverage along with former finalist Paul A. Loeffler. ABC newspersons Robin Roberts and Chris Connelly will also be joined by Loeffler for ABC's coverage of the final phase of the event.

Adult Swim is bumping different now

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 23rd 2006 1:37PM
I've been watching Adult Swim from the very beginning, and it's been interesting to watch as the late night cartoon block has expanded and become more popular with viewers. Back in the old days of Adult Swim there were no clever "bumps" like you see now, but rather footage of elderly people using a public pool. That was scrapped for the "bumps," those black backgrounds displaying clever sayings. At first these tended to be silly and rather aloof, much like the shows themselves. Over the last year or so, however, I've noticed they've been used more and more to give viewers a look at the inner machinations of the network and its staff. The bumps have become more chatty and, dare I say, almost blog-like in some respects. Is this good or bad? It's really neither, it's just something I've noticed. Though it's that kind of frank approach that keeps most Adult Swim viewers glued to the set even when during the commercial breaks.
