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.
Although the TBS comedy series “Glory Daze” has already set the record for highest number of outdated college stereotypes employed in a single hour of television, shows like this tend to glaze over their inward mediocrity with outward displays of mind-blowing female awesomeness.
Episode 4, in which Rick and Co. search Atlanta for “Stumpy” Merle, get their guns, lose Glenn, make new friends, get Glenn back, and then return to a zombie swarm eating its way through the camp.
When “Lost” was winding down, I had two big questions. Where the hell is Walt, and what embarrassing roles will Jorge Garcia have to play going forward? Hopefully, he won’t have to at all because there’s news this morning that he’s re-teaming with J.J. Abrams.
Remember the classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” Christmas special with the herky-jerky animation? If you don’t, you’re a communist. Even so, you might appreciate that “Community” is planning a similar stop-motion animation holiday spoof.
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.
Bad news for people who like bad television. CBS has canceled Patricia Arquette’s supernatural thriller, “Medium.”
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.
Director Gore Verbinski and writer Terry Rossio are turning the crime procedurial on its ass. They’re putting a supernatural twist on the cop/legal drama, setting up “Magical Law” at Fox. The title makes me think more of wizards than ghosts, not that that would be any less ridiculous.
As the latest actress to join the cast of ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Sarah Drew is officially the show’s rookie pretend doctor.
In order to avoid waking mother, most viewers will be watching with the audio off. This makes it difficult to say whether they will notice the ‘couple friendly’ intent of the programs. After all, these are the same people who haven’t yet noticed that boobies are free on the Internet.
Apparently Emma Bell jives well with horror. Currently portraying a survivor of the zombie apocalypse in AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Bell will take on the role of Death’s leading female target in the fifth installment of the Final Destination series next year.
Guillermo del Toro is attaching himself to another project instead of actually shooting another project. This time the director is teaming up with “Battlestar Galactica” executive producer David Eick to create a new TV series version of “The Hulk” for ABC and Marvel.
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.
Welcome to the mobile edition of the weekly “Walking Dead” post. Why mobile? Because I’m sitting in an airport writing on my phone, watching on my iPad. Hence, no pics and probably plenty of typos (which my editor had better had fixed).
If you follow the weekly procedural escapades of Fox’s “Bones” you know Michaela Conlin best as Angela Montenegro, a forensics-minded sometimes-bohemian party child and the titular character’s closest confidant.
Fox is developing a sitcom based off Weekly World News. No word yet when they plan to abruptly cancel it.
In the latest Muppet movie, one name stands out like a brown stain on an otherwise clean pair of tighty whities: Lady Gaga.
Until she scored a leading role on Fox’s lady-centric detective series “Bones,” Tamara Taylor’s acting career was, for the most part, a collection of guest shots and short appearances dating back to her television debut in 1991.
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.
An Emmy Award winner and a native of London, England, Archie Panjabi has been onscreen for over fifteen years, with the majority of her career spent in television.
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.
Get ready for some stereotypical alpha male behavior because Tim Allen might return to the boob tube.
