30 Rock is Great!

I wish more people would watch this show so when I reference jokes from it people don't tilt their heads to the side and furrow their brows like a confused terrier.

CNN's got a great article about the show on their site right now, and Tina Fey is co-hosing The View this morning (Joy Behar makes a cameo on 30 Rock tonight). I'd wish NBC would drop the show into some other timeslots so people can sample it. Right now, the only people who seem to know how funny it is are me and my boyfriend, who does the BEST Tracy Morgan: "Bread will never maybe attack your brain again!"

Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space

I was just recounting this powerhouse of a series to Michael the other day and decided a brief Googling was in order. This was the second season of the show and the prodcuers apparently felt the need to pump up the excitment by sending the very Earth-bound teen rock and roll band into the stars. It didn't really make much of a difference as the stories were all pretty cookie-cutter and more or less a weekly Scooby Doo rip-off anyway, but hey - I watched.

From beginnig to end, the series only produced 32 episodes, though as a kid it seemed there were like 175 different episodes at least. The show was clearly not a huge success for the Hanna-Barbara juggernaut at the time, but certainly gained a following in the years afterwards. A feature film, a tidy little ancillary market and nearly everyone in their mod-thirties being able to sing the theme song from beginning to end is a testament to that. Below, you can watch the theme songs from both Season One and Season Two. I know, I know. Your prayers are answered. You can thank me later. has a detailed page about the series and how it came to be, along with some stills, and an explanation of how the band was launched into outer space for Season Two, as if one was really necessary for the average bleary-eyed 8 year old just out of bed:

"The story of how our heroes wound up in outer space (as recounted under the credits of every show) is that the band was invited to play at the launch of a new NASA spaceship (well, a new spaceship, anyway; there are no NASA logos or anything else that would indicate who built it, but there was nobody else in the US building spaceships at the time). They ride to the top of the gantry and pose in front of the open hatch for a photo-op. Alexandra attempts to knock Josie out of the spotlight (literally) with a body slam and they all go tumbling into to the open hatch. In a gravity and orientation challenged sequence worthy of Rocketship X-M, they fall inside, but the close-up shows them falling in toward the control panel at the front of the cabin (meaning that they were falling up since the rocket is standing on its tail). Anyway, as she falls, Alexandra grabs the launch lever and pulls it, sending them off. You don’t have to worry what happened to the photographers still on the gantry (who should have gotten toasted as the ship roared off) because the gantry conveniently disappears for the long shot of the ship taking off."


Ian Ziering is Coming to Dancing with the Stars

During the 90210 reign in the 90's it was never a question of Dylan or Brandon for me, but rather whether or not hunky Ian Ziering was gonna take his shirt off and sweat it up on the football field with his frat brothers. Ian is one of those guys that will always looks good no matter how he ages. It's all in his eyes and his smile. Would that we all could have been so graciously blessed by the Lord above. Now, Ian will be brining those lovely attributes, along with a few others below the neck to the next season of Dancing with the Stars, filling the "washed-up stud on the road to career redemption via the reality comeback trail" category. Can't wait to see how my boy fills out those tight little chinos as he swings those hips from one end of my forty-inch LCD to the other. Can't wait!

And if anyone has any shirtless pics of the lovely Ian just burning a hole in your hard drive, please send them my way!

T.R. Knight: Isaiah Called Me a "Faggot"

On today's Ellen DeGeneres show, newly-out Grey's Anatomy actor T.R. Knight states that co-star Isaiah Washington called him a faggot, openly on the Grey's set for all to hear, and that this was the cause of the ruckus that developed between Washington and Patrick Dempsey.

Someone has posted the interview to YouTube. Knight seems very uneasy even talking about it, but clearly he wants to (or feels driven to) set the record straight and put a slap-down on Washington, who denied the slur again last night backstage at the Golden Globes and in doing so used the word again, dragging all the focus back onto it.

Can you imagine having to show up to work there today?

You can see the full interview today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and if you miss it you can catch it the following week on The Oxygen Channel

Ellen does a great job putting Knight at ease. Very classy. I wonder if Washington will be making the talk show rounds soon, though according to T.V. Guide, it's possible he won't have any project to promote.

Little Miss Sunshine Cast Plays Musical Chairs on ELLEN

I loved Little Miss sunshine, but I love it even more after watching how much fun the cast had playing Musical Chairs on today's epsiode of Ellen. They're still playing off each other like pros. I think this kind of chemistry warrants a sequel of some kind... Little Miss Moonlight perhaps? Probably best to leave it as is. The movie is worth the rental. I hope it pulls down a couple Golden Globe awards tonight at the very least.

Pups is Pups: Adorable Italian Mastiff Puppies

A friend of my sister's family had an Italain mastiff that just gave birth to eleven puppies. They'll be going over on Martin Luther King, Jr. in person to see them, but I have to work, so I'll have to make do with these pictures, though I am thinking about calling in sick. It would be so worth it to pick up a few of these little tykes and snuggle with them.

RIP Lily Munster

Yvonne DeCarlo has died of natural causes at the age of 84. Though she had an extensive career in flims, she is no doubt best known for the role of Lily Munster, on The Munsters which only ran from 1964 through 1966.

I was personally always a much bigger fan of The Munsters than I was the competing Adams Family. And Yvonne was quite a hottie, even slathered in green paint and cobwebs. Do yourself a favor and Netflix Munster, Go Home!. It's a lot of fun!

Oh My God... Kelly Loves Shoes

Click Here to advance to the ForTheBoys TV demo
Click Here for the naked shower salute to The Jeffersons theme song

It's been over six months since I posted Kelly's Shoes (Oh My God... Shoes) and it's still scoring me a lot of search engine hits. So I figured I'd post it again with some additional tidbits in case you have not yet become familiar with this hysterical performer.

Make Kelly your MySpace friend and check out her other songs, including the unfairly overshadowed Let Me Borrow That Top, and some really bad YouTube Knockoffs that are still fun to watch.

Somewhere in this Picture is a Two-Faced Cow.

Born in Virginia last week, this calf has two noses, two lower jaws, and two tongues that move independently of each other. There's only one eye soket but it contains two eyes. Though this birth is unusual, it is not one of a kind. Creepy.


Weird Science - Bugs Trapped in Your LCD

This poor guy has got insects in his LCD that is connected to his MacBook! According to a poster on this forum thread at Apple Support forums, they are called Springtails. Some recommended putting the LCD in a garbage bag and let it out in the sun, some suggested ‘bombing’ the LCD with insecticides, while some believe that they will die out on their own without food. Whichever method you choose, pray that it doesn’t die at a distracting spot and refuse to fall off. You’ll get a “permanent dead pixel”! - from


LOST returns (and it better deliver)

I hate that the critical tide has turned against LOST, but I still don't like having to wait this long for the season to pick up again. 16 weeks with no reruns is great, but personally an episode of LOST I've already seen is far better than pretty much anything else on the tube. As for Criminal Minds, which started to beat it in overall ratings - though not specified demos - I tuned into it last week to see what the fuss was all about, and apparently you have to not have watched television for the last ten years to find anything about it even remotely original or stiimulating.

The show returns February 7th.

The Worst Part of a Celebrity Dying... when their crazy spouses jump in front of the cameras. Here, Tomi Rae Hyni, the (alleged) widow of James Brown displays her very unique brand of... I guess it's grief.

Wow, she is one unstrung bean bag.

Doesn't she remind you a little of Jaid Barrymore? Ever seen one of her four thousand interviews where Jaid mentions that she would have won the role of Princess Leia if she hadn't had to stay home to babysit Drew?


RIP Megan Mullally Show

If you haven't caught it, you've got about three weeks left. This show was DOA form the get-go and for very good reason. I'm probably one of the biggest Megan fans out there, but anyone who saw her guest host on The Late Show when Letterman was sick already knew that the talk forum did not suit her vast talents.

I still can't figure out why a network didn't sign her to a prime time development deal. Is it becuse of her age? Is she destined to a line of unfunny supermarket commercials like Patricia Heaton?

If Megan wants to do something out of the sit-com mold, I think she would do a great job as a scene-chewing bitch on a prime time soap. Before Will & Grace let her start winking to the audience every other moment, she was delivering one-liners with a wicked slither. Maybe I'll just have to write something for her myself. In the meantime, it's off to TV Jail you go, Megan Mullally. See you in 2008! Below you can check out the absolute very best the Megan Mullally Show ever had to offier... the promos. They should have just run these instead of premiering the show.


Ellen Degeneres Meets a 20 Foot Anaconda

Sometimes I watch television and find myself fitfully jealous of talk show hosts. Other times I watch and say to myself, "Not for all the money in the world!"

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is currently counting down its best moments from 2006. The top five vote getters will air this Friday. This one gets my vote not just as my favorite moment from Ellen for 2006, but for daytime television in general.

I can't quite decide which part gets me the most. Ellen launching with tough talk and ending with a mad dash across the back of the stage? Jeff Corwin's crack about the gender of the snake? The fear that produces the awkward sentence, "Well it's got it near my arm?" Or the big hair lady in the audience at the 1:18 mark. What do you think?

This one will probably make the countdown too. Check out Ellen's very authentic reaction when she holds her own against Tiger Woods.

Ellen will be hosting the 79th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, February 25. Based on what she manages in these two clips, I don't think she'll have any problem carrying the show with all the class and humor needed.
