Last night, Katy Perry appeared on “The Simpsons” as a real person, not a jaundice cartoon. The live-action show full of Springfield puppets had a premise, but it was inconsequential considering Katy had a tight red leather dress stretched over her curves.
We’ve seen a bunch of trailers and teasers for HBO’s upcoming fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” and last night the network aired a ten minute behind the scenes featurette. Normally I’m not a huge fantasy guy, as my girlfriend says it cheapens the relationship, but I’m quite excited for this.
In their ongoing pissing contest with ‘Family Guy,’ Seth Green and the ‘Robot Chicken’ gang have created a third Star Wars special as well.
In this commercial for Logitech Revue with Google TV, Kevin Bacon plays Kevin Bacon’s number one fan. It leaves me wondering if this is what Kevin actually looks like when he’s not in front of the cameras. When Kyra Sedgwick rolls over in the morning, is this what she sees?
Michael Bay directed this new holiday spot for Victoria’s Secret. Seems like these ads pretty much direct themselves now. This year’s doesn’t even have any explosions. Smells like a phoned in job if I’ve ever smelled one.
Lavazza’s paid Julia Roberts 1.5 millions bones to sip their Modo Mio coffee and flash her pearly whites. They could have at least demanded she unhinge her jaw and swallow a whole turkey.
To promote their fashion show tomorrow on CBS, the Victoria’s Secret Angels did a little backstage Katy Perry karaoke for our viewing pleasure.Alright, you twisted my arm. I’ll watch you traipse around in lingerie for an hour.
This January, Fox is adding the new comedy “Bob’s Burgers” to their Sunday night Animation Domination block. The show about a family-owned burger joint features the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin, Kristen Schaal, and Eugene Mirman.
The third teaser trailer for HBO’s “Game of Thrones” premiered last night on HBO. Based on the books George R.R. Martin, the fantasy series will most likely fulfill every dork’s wet dream (at least until The Hobbit hits theaters).
CBS has a huge hit on their hands with the series adaptation of Twitter sensation “$#*! My Dad Says,” so it makes sense they’d want to stick their fingers in more sticky Internet pies. Enter Antoine Dodson.
This past weekend, “Saturday Night Live” put together a funny parody commercial for Black Friday sales at a Walmart-esque retail store. Sadly, it’s not far from the truth. Except for the coked up rooster. I have yet to see one of those dodging the ravenous crowds.
In MTV’s remake of the UK cult hit “Skins,” teens smoke pot, drink booze, take pills, and lie to their parents. This new spot nicely demonstrates those vices with a groovy track from Sleigh Bells adding to the reverse debauchery.
Alec Baldwin can’t get enough of Wegman’s homecooked $6 meals. This awkward commercial proves it. How much did they have to pay Baldwin to agree to this awful campaign? It had to be upwards of 10,000 homecooked $6 meals.
A side-by-side comparison of hood slides by two television characters portrayed by William Shatner. 28 years later and he’s still got the moves.
NBC has been running this new promo for their mid-season series “The Cape” in anticipation of its January 9th premiere. It looks fun in a goofy kinda way. Like Darkman without the crazy parts or compound fractures.
Here we have an early look at MTV’s “Teen Wolf” series, and it looks pretty good. By that, I mean it doesn’t look too much like Twilight. And there are crossbows.
Breaking News: Kanye West has beef. The other day on the “Today Show,” the outspoken rapper taped an interview with Matt Lauer which, if you’re a reader of Kanye’s Twitter you’d know, didn’t go smoothly.You’d know this because he wrote, “Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone!”
Someone DOES listen to my prayers at night. In this Page 3 Old Spice commercial parody, model Rosie Jones struts around half-naked as the woman you’d like your woman to be like.
Rap’s most prolific shouter, Lil Jon, remixed the “Sesame Street” theme because why not? The lyrics always needed more “MOTHERF*CKERS!” in them.
Spike TV got Gary Busey together with some hottish chicks to drop some science on the mic appliance in order to promote their syndication of “Entourage.” The concept behind the music video promo is creative. Actresses and porn stars who have appeared naked on the show complain about stripping off and having to put their mouths on the cast.
Yesterday we reported that Robert Downey Jr. would be voicing the monocled legume Mr. Peanut in a new commercial for Planters. Today we have that very commercial.
Conan O’Brien returned to the airwaves last night to prove that you can banish him to basic cable, but you can’t take away what makes him great. And it looks like with ‘Conan,’ he helped TBS finally earn their “Very Funny” slogan.
