Say What?

A stage musical about Tammy Faye Bakker is in the works.

Eight Months.

EIGHT freakin' months.

No one's gonna figure it out, so now we have to wait eight months. But damn, that was a good one. I would say one of the best cliffhangers ever. (And that includes the similar Alias cliffhanger when it fast-forwarded two years into Sydney's life. My guess is the Lost cliffhanger will turn out different.)


Full House Alert.

Mary-Kate Olsen is joining one of my favorite shows, so I don't know how to react. She will play Tara, a Christian girl living in the Majestic community, and who becomes a love interested to Silas.  She'll be in 10 episodes out of the 15-episode season.

Holy Shit, Kids!!!

Iraq and my Elected Representatives

I called all mine today to tell them NOT to vote for the Iraq funding bill unless it contains a date for withdrawal. I told them they work for us, not President Bush, and we want out of Iraq.

It felt good to make the calls! The people who answered the phones were nice and said they were taking notes. Also, it was tough to get through. The lines were busy.

Fun & Stealthy!

his little universal remote is the newest (secret) weapon in the Ninja's arsenal and we assure you in the right hands it can be used to quickly assassinate dangerously annoying TV shows. Simply point the Ninja Remote at the intended target (a television set) and press the mute button for a few seconds - once the TV mutes the remote is now ready to assume full control of its victim. Innocent bystanders will be frozen with fear (or very animated with anger) as the volume and channel change magically in front of their eyes, seemingly controlled by some mysterious force.

Did you hear the one about Dick Cheney?

He's supposedly on the "DC Madam" list that ABC was all over until they suddenly dropped the story. Wonkette has the best reaction:

"There, are you people happy now? Didn’t think so. Do you know why we’re underwhelmed by this rumor? Because even if it’s a fact, which it probably is, there’s no way it would have any impact on Cheney’s “career.” This is a draft-dodging half-human war criminal with a pregnant lesbian daughter who tells senators to fuck themselves and shoots his own friends in the face. Ordering an outcall hooker is positively innocent compared to the well-known things Cheney does every day."

My Name Is Earl

Season finale is tonight.

It's Spring.... Time for the Celebrities to Come Outside

Seriously, I've seen like 84 celebrities this past week. Matthew McConaughey was in Venice Beach, and boy does he look greasy. I saw Paris Hilton, Simon Rex and Cameron Diaz at Coachella. (By the way, Simon, I've seen you naked on the internets.) I saw Dwight's arch nemesis from The Office (Ed Helms) on my street getting food. I'm sure there's more, but I just can't think of them.

Anyways, it's like spring and the celebrity eggs are hatching.

Wednesday, May 9


Michael Moore's next documentary, SICKO, will be released on June 29th. Cool. You may have heard about his last movie, Fahrenheit 9/11.

Entourage Works It

There will be an entire week between seasons. You heard that correctly. The next season of Entourage begins two weeks after this season ends. Interesting and good.

Top Chef

Top Chef Miami premieres on Bravo June 13!!!


I don't watch Law & Order, so I don't care except this is an interesting deal. Two of the three L&O shows are likely to be cancelled by NBC. But that doesn't mean you won't see new episodes, since TNT is probably going to pick at least one of them up. Shows don't jump networks very often, especially from broadcast to cable, so this is one to watch.


Surprise! FX renewed Dirt. I hate that show. They also renewed The Riches. I hate that show, too. Guess I won't be watching a lot of FX next year.

Lost 3.20 Preview

Episode 3.20: The Man Behind the Curtain (Ben-centric)
Airdate: May 9, 2007

The Man Behind the Curtain is a Wizard of Oz reference and is pointing to the question of who really is in charge of the Others. We will learn more about Jacob next week.

François Chau, who plays Dr. Marvin Candle, revealed in interview: "Yes, Marvin Candle is on the island [in episode 20]. Without giving too much away, I can only say that I have yet to have the chance to work with some of the other characters."

Ben begrudgingly begins to introduce Locke to the secrets of the island, beginning with the mysterious Jacob. Meanwhile, Juliet's secret goes public.

Ben has been in love. We will get a "sense" of it in 2 weeks.

We will see Dharma before the purge and we might see how they repelled the smoke monster with the sonic fence.

I hear we're going to meet Ben's mommy and daddy. We will get much more info about Ben's origins and the origins of the island.

Someone you wouldn't expect to see wearing a Dharma suit will appear in episode 20. There will be a big, epic, shocking scene. We will see more Dharma vans. Roger wasn't the only workman.

More info on the DeDroots soon.

It looks like you'll get more action on Hurley's... van. Producers are currently casting for a "Roger," a working-class janitor in his early forties who is bitter about his place in life but has higher aspirations. The notice says of the character, "He has troubled and complex relationship with his son; he finds himself caught up in a mysterious situation beyond his imaginings; and the actor must not be claustrophobic." Pretty sure this is the skeleton — "Roger Work Man"—from Hurley's episode.

We'll see the Dharma van again, it will have a flashback of sorts and see how it came to be in the jungle. We will also see another Volkswagen product on the island.

End Is In Sight

LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- ABC has set an end date for "Lost."

The Emmy-winning adventure series will run for 48 more episodes over three seasons. Each season will consist of 16 episodes, which will air uninterrupted.

"Lost" executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, who have been vocal about setting up an endgame for the show, have signed on to stay for the remainder of the series' run. Their separate new eight-figure deals with "Lost" producer ABC TV Studio include their services on the show as well as multiyear development pacts set to kick in when "Lost" bows out during the 2009-10 season.

"Due to the unique nature of 'Lost,' we knew it would require an end date to keep the integrity and strength of the show consistent throughout and to give the audience the payoff they deserve," ABC Entertainment president Stephen McPherson said. Lindelof said having the end point in sight was "incredibly liberating. Like we've been running a marathon and we actually know where the finish line is for the first time." Lindelof and Cuse said they've had "a road map for the series with all the major mythological milestones and the ending in place" for awhile.

"What we didn't know was how long we had to play the story out," Cuse said. "By defining the endpoint we can now really map out the rest of the series in confidence."

There will be some puzzle play, too. "We sort of view 'Lost' as a mosaic," Cuse said. "Now there are only 48 more tiles that go into that mosaic, and we're figuring out, along with all the other writers, exactly where they all go."

In January, Lindelof and Cuse said that they envisioned the endpoint for "Lost" around episode 100. The agreement with ABC will bring the total number of episodes to 120.
