‘Lost’ Final Season Premieres This February
Friday, November 20 by

The survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 have finally landed… on a date for the premiere of their sixth season. Exec producer Carlton Cuse announced via the tweets that the show will return to f*cking our minds on Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010 at 9PM. No word yet on whether the plot-line will pick up where we last left off or if we'll see a new, alternate time-line in the final season. Regardless of what goes down, I'm sure it will get all mucked up by Sayid when gets tricked or caught in some kind of rope trap. He consistently screws everything up but remains a fan favorite. HOW?! I hate that tanktop-loving dope. (TV Overmind)

Thursday, November 19 by

In celebration of the 20th season of The Simpsons, a contest was held to create a new character. The winner of the 25,000+ received entries is 52 year-old Peggy Black of Orange, CT. Her character, Ricardo Bomba (pictured below), is a handsome, smooth-talking, hot-blooded lothario who's set to liquify the town's panties on the January 31st episode."Rrrri-carrr-do Bomba," Black said when describing the character, extravagantly rolling the "R's" in Spanish-language fashion. She then added, "You look mah-velous!!!" Soon after, her spinning bowtie went awry and cut her chin up pretty badly. (Yahoo)

Bob Saget Explores Strange Things for A&E Reality Series
Tuesday, November 17 by

A&E has just shook hands with the Devil and hired Bob Saget to host the show Bob Saget's Strange Days (working title). In the reality series, Saget will travel the country exploring strange American subcultures. Detroit isn't yet on the docket…But everything from mail order brides to a survivalist cult prepping for the end of the world is fair game. There's also mention of visiting a fraternity, which in the scheme of things doesn't seem all that interesting, but you know how Bob likes himself some young ladies. I bet he'll drink those frat boys under the table and then stick it to all their sorority girlfriends. You go, Danny Tanner. You go. (THR)

‘The League’ Actress Nadine Velazquez
Monday, November 16 by

Nadine Velazquez is probably most recognizable for her role as Catalina, the motel maid, on My Name is Earl. Now she plays Sophia on The League, where her character's breasts are too big after just having a child. Buuuuuuh. You can see her fondling them in episode 2. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh.  A word from Nadine: "I wake up with stripper boots on sometimes."That probably means you went to bed with stripper boots on… Which means you were probably stripping the night before… I used my powers of deduction to surmise that you dance naked! What club, please? Nadine's got those "stripper eyes" in the pics after the jump.

MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ Is The Greatest Thing To Happen To Any Of Us
Thursday, November 12 by

I thought this was a Halloween photo but no one else is dressed up. Fellas, at first you'll be pissed when your girlfriend series records MTV's Jersey Shore on your DVR (which she will undoubtedly do). Don't be. The show is AMAZING. I was lucky enough to catch the first episode and I can say that it has actually improved my life. It gave me the greatest gift of all. The gift of feeling superior to total strangers. Does it feature stereotypes? Sure. Is it trashy? Uh-huh. Are there stained pits? Undoubtedly. Do they have a duck-shaped telephone? They do. It's unintentional comedy at its finest with the punchlines polished an unsettling shade of fake tan. Easily the best show that MTV has ever aired. Tune in December 3rd. Your life will thank you.

Wednesday, November 11 by

Bad news for people who stay in on Friday nights. The FOX mind-wipe melodrama Dollhouse has been put out to pasture. Show creator Joss Whedon commented on his site,"I'm extremely proud of the people I've worked with: my star (Eliza Dushku), my staff, my cast, my crew. I feel the show is getting better pretty much every week, and I think you'll agree in the coming months. I'm grateful that we got to put it on, and then come back and put it on again. You seem cool. Do you want to get coffee sometime? Hey! I know you're just pretending to be distracted by your phone. You're just like all the others!!"FOX plans to air all 13 episodes of the show's second season and give Whedon the chance to go out with a bang.When reached for comment, the Richest Man On Television, Simon Cowell had this to say:Oh, real mature, Simon. Real mature. (THR)

Simon Cowell Is Wealthiest Man On TV
Wednesday, November 11 by

 Forbes reports that Simon Cowell is stacking that cheddar, son. Oh sorry. That wasn't Forbes. That was 4BZ, my rap-loving neighbor. What Forbes actually said is that British grump Simon Cowell is the top-earning man on U.S. television with an estimated income of $75 million dollars last year. WOW.Coming in second place is Donald Trump with an estimated $50 million. Question. Why can't the two wealthiest men on television afford a decent haircut? (THR)

CBS Picks Up ‘Sh*t My Dad Says’
Tuesday, November 10 by

(Photo credit: Patrick Schumacker)The Twitter phenom Sh*t My Dad Says is making the leap from the very small screen to the slightly larger screen. The uproarious tweets that relay the musings of a 73 year-old San Diego man have spawned a book deal and now a script commitment with CBS in the four months since its creation by ex-Holy Taco writer Justin Halpern. Halpern will be handling the writing duties along with former Screen Junkies writer Patrick Schumacker as they are supervised by Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick.Today is a happy day here at Screen Junkies as two of our own leave the nest to enter a career where pants-wearing is an expectation. Patrick and Justin, keep an eye on the mail as I have sent each of you a copy of Dr. Seuss's "Oh, The Places You'll Go!"With my headshot tucked between the pages of course. (THR)

George Clooney Makes Like a Looney Toons Character

J.J. Abrams Directing Pilot ‘Undercovers’
Friday, November 6 by

J.J. Abrams is getting back in the saddle to direct the pilot for his television project Undercovers over at NBC. Not since the jaw dropping pilot for LOST has Abrams taken a seat behind a camera that's in front of a set constructed specifically for a small screen airing.  The top brass is being very ellusive on the plot of the show, only saying that it's a mix between Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Bourne Identity. Hmmmm, two spy movies? When you take two things that are pretty much the same thing it's not really a mix. That's like blending katsup and marinara, cutting it with tap water and calling it reimagined buttered noodles topping. Or in my household: dinner.    [THR]

‘The League’ Actress Leslie Bibb
Thursday, November 5 by

 Leslie Bibb plays a b*tch well. She played a stuck up high school b*tch in Popular, an overbearing NASCAR b*tch in Talladega Nights, and now she's playing an emasculating wife b*tch in The League on FX tonight. I'm not saying she's typecast, I'm just saying she knows how to make a man thank the heavens that he's single. Oh wait, she's hot. Nevermind all that.A word from Leslie: "Jesus did grow up."Yes, into a fine young man, Leslie. That's what happens when you drink your milk.See why white gold does a body good after the jump.

Happy 40th Birthday, Big Bird. (I Still Think You’re Weird)
Wednesday, November 4 by

You may have noticed Big Bird's junk on Google today and thought to yourself, "What in blue blazes?!! I'm writing a letter!" Well, put down that pen, nerd. Big Bird's balls are all over Google because it's his 40th birthday and he has friends in high places. Hard to believe that Big Bird is now officially middle-aged. Then again I'm not really sure what the life expectancy is for a gigantic, ambiguously gay, yellow songbird. So…. Happy Birthday you big freak!

Steve Martin & Alec Baldwin To Co-Host The Oscars
Wednesday, November 4 by

This morning Variety reports that Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will be double-teaming the 82nd Academy Awards. Oscar co-producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman didn't waste much time in snagging the duo as we told you yesterday that Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr. had turned down the offer to co-host. Martin has the experience of both hosting and having had worked with Shankman in the past on Bringing Down the House. Sounds like two pretty solid hosts but oh, how we do wish that Baldwin were splitting hosting duties with Tracy Morgan.BALDWIN: "Are you excited to be here tonight, Tracy?"MORGAN: "I'm gonna get Oscar pregnant!"BALDWIN: "Ha ha. Now Tracy, stick to the script."MORGAN: "Sure thing, Alec B.. (long pause) I wanna break Helen Mirren's water!!"

Watch Cartoons on Jaroo.com! Cartoons!
Tuesday, November 3 by

Grab your bowl of sugar cereal and pop a squat in front of the computer! Jaroo.com launches today and you can watch all kinds of cartoons on it! According to The Hollywood Reporter: Jaroo launches with 50 TV series and 500 episodes, though it is digitizing its library of 6,000 episodes to ensure fairly rapid growth, said Ken Locker, senior vp digital media. Like Hulu, the Web site features TV shows that can be watched for free. Each 22-minute episode contains up to 90 seconds of commercials that cannot be skipped. But unlike Hulu, Jaroo content, including the commercials, is aimed at kids ages 4-12.4-12 my ass. I think we all know that cartoons transcend age brackets. Especially Inspector Gadget. We here at Screen Junkies were just reminiscing about how waiting for the next episode of Gadget was a true test on our childhood patience. And now all you gotta do is click a button and blond, pigtailed Penny can be yours whenever you desire. Oh Penny, how you stirred up emotions inside of us that we wouldn't understand until many years later…

‘Lost: The Final Season’ Teaser Shows You So Much of Nothing
Friday, October 30 by

If you'd like to know absolutely nothing about what's happening on the next and final season of LOST then watch the teaser trailer below. It'll give you so much of nothing that you'll be begging for more nothing. According to E! Online: I’m hearing from Lost sources that every single shot of the first few episodes are so revealing that the producers have convinced ABC to NOT SHOW A SINGLE FRAME before the new season airs. No promo scenes, no photos, no nada! So you will be completely in the dark, but it is for good reason: The twists they’re planning are so good, you will WANT to be surprised. Trust me. Your mind gonna go kaplewey. Alright, if the lack of information and footage is because they're readying a twist that's going to turn my world inside out than I'll wait semi-patiently. But if Jenna from 30 Rock from last night has the inside scoop, than apparently the whole thing is Hurley's dream.  Watch the teaser after the jump.

‘White Collar’ Actress Tiffani Thiessen
Friday, October 30 by

You may better know Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski, Zack Morris' Polish, frizzy-haired main squeeze on Saved By The Bell, that is until that slut Stacey Carosi came into the picture. Well now she's all grown up, taking sexy photographs to break free from her innocent image, and starring in White Collar, a fantastic new drama on USA. Seriously, watch it. For Tiffani and for your entertainment.A word from Tiffani: "I learned how to smoke from Mark-Paul Gosselaar on Saved by the Bell. He's the one who taught me, and we smoked together"Tisk, tisk, Zack Morris. How did you expect Tiffani to resist your charm and stonewashed jeans when you peer pressured her into smoking with you? You'd think someone who narrated their life to an outside audience would know better.Come on, just try the pics after the jump, they won't hurt you, we promise.

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Contestant Kathy Ireland
Thursday, October 29 by

A blast from the past! A middle school fascination. A reason to "borrow" periodicals from the local Walgreens. Kathy Ireland used to be the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition it girl, and now she dances the mambo on television for charity dollars. Let's hope that money goes to the kids whose fingers bleed as they sew together the items in the Kathy Ireland Worldwide Catalogue.A word from Kathy: "At the moment of conception, life starts."I'm not touching that one with a ten foot pole…Here are some Pro-Licious pics after the jump!

Thursday, October 29 by

The hit British paranormal dramedy Being Human has been picked up for a second season by BBC One. In addition, Syfy has picked up the project and plans to create an American version. For those unfamiliar with the series it tells the story of three twentysomething roommates — one a werewolf, one a vampire, and the third a ghost — and finds out what happens when they stop being polite and start getting real.No writer has been attached but Syfy prez David Howe stressed that Syfy does not intend to "slavishly replicate the British version." Which is showbiz-speak for "We're making a supernatural version of Big Bang Theory." (THR)

HBO's True Blood is prepping for its third season and it seems that creator Alan Ball is looking to bring some more batsh*t characters to Bon Temps. Michael Aussiello at EW posted the official show casting notice.

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Contestant Joanna Krupa
Wednesday, October 28 by

Who gives a twirling sh*t if Joanna Krupa can dance? I certainly don't. Hey ABC, get a pole up on that stage and watch your ratings skyrocket. Joanna is one of the sexiest woman alive, which is clearly evident by the aurora borealis of "daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!" above. No tap shoes required.  A word from Joanna: "I get so sick of wearing lingerie for shoots that I don’t even go to Victoria’s Secret" Lingerie is overrated anyway. Nothing always works. Or bath bubbles. Personally, I prefer the Robocop brand of liquid suds.  You have ten seconds to comply with the pics after the jump.

‘Lost’ Final Season Will Be Interrupted by Olympics
Wednesday, October 28 by

Dudes, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the final season of Lost is going to be c-blocked by the Winter Olympics. Also your mom and I are taking things to the next level.According to Carlton Cuse, Lost will take a break after the first few episodes while NBC airs the Winter Games. The show is expected to return in March.This news comes as a total bummer but on the brightside we won't care much anymore come March. We can get through this together, you guys. (IGN)

‘Castle’ Actress Stana Katic
Tuesday, October 27 by

In her latest gig, Stana Katic plays the sultry, flirtacious Detective Kate Beckett in the Castle, giving Nathan Fillion a run for his money every week. Insert your own “frisking” joke here. Watch the show and I think you'll agree that there's something about her. Her commanding presence makes you want to willingly obey. A word from Stana: "It was my first time kissing a woman and I had a great time with her."Are you planning on doing this again? When? Will it be in an open forum? Do tickets go on sale soon? Can I buy them directly through the venue because I really hate paying exorbitant service charges. Here are some more pics after the jump, free of charge!

‘Heroes’ Actress Ali Larter
Monday, October 26 by

Ali Larter wore the whip cream bikini seen 'round the world.  We all remember, and it's the only time we ever wished we were James Van Der Beek.  Okay, maybe also in Dawson's Creek a few times when him and Katie Holmes got cozy, but that's it.  Ali's starred in Heroes as Nicky since the show's beginning, but as of yet has not donned a whip cream bikini in any of the episodes.  Hey Heroes producers, Sweeps is coming up soon.  Wink wink.  WINK!      A word from Ali: "I hate pretty-looking boys. I'd rather have a guy with a potbelly than one who's in the gym all the time and watches what he eats."Hmmmm, somehow I doubt this.  Ali recently got married and I'm almost positive the lucky guy doesn't resemble Artie Lange.  No one wants that, Ali.  No one.Evidence that someone's been going to the gym after the jump!

MSNBC Mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton
Thursday, October 22 by

MSNBC mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton – Watch more Funny VideosWell… kudos, I guess, to MSNBC's Contessa Brewer for not disappearing and leaving a Contessa Brewer-shaped cloud of dust after having the Reverend Jesse Jackson remind her that he is, in fact, not the Reverend Al Sharpton as she introduced him. Apparently MSNBC thinks all wise, elderly black reverends are named Rev. Al Sharpton. Or else they thought Al Sharpton was coming, and he cancelled at the last minute, leaving them with one choice: get "the other one." Then some poor intern forgot to change the script… and the rest pretty writes itself.  Tune in to "Countdown" this evening, when Keith Olberman interviews star of the Lethal Weapon series, Forrest Whitaker. 

Adam Shankman To Co-Produce The Oscars
Wednesday, October 21 by

Choreographer-turned-director Adam Shankman has been tapped to co-produce this year's Oscar telecast. The Hairspray director and So You Think You Can Dance judge will take the reins with movie executive Bill Mechanic. A fact my brosefs and I are way stoked about. I can imagine it now. A long game of touch football in the park, then a nice walk in the crisp winter air, quick stop-off for some tapas and then me and the bros will all curl up and see how the Shank-Man can butch up the Academy Awards. I mean, did you see Zac Efron's Pool Party? That was a machismo fiesta. Reminded me of my fraternity days. (Variety)

Is Hasselhoff Getting a Reality Show?
Tuesday, October 20 by

TMZ is reporting that David Hasselhoff is close to getting a reality show deal with A&E. Said an A&E representative to TMZ, "We are close to signing a deal with David and his kids." You may remember that not too long ago, David & family had a six-part reality miniseries that aired in the UK called "Meet the Hasselhoffs," in which they traveled around with UK Deejay Scott Mills. You can see a clip here:

‘Nip/Tuck’ Actress Rose McGowan
Tuesday, October 20 by

Rose McGowan replaces people.  She replaced Shannon Doherty on Charmed, replaced Robert Rodriguez's wife in life, and now is replacing Katee Sackhoff, Shaun's girlfriend, in Nip/Tuck.  She also replaced her leg with a machine gun in Planet Terror, but that's neither here nor there.  Finally she replaced my interest in her with disinterest when she had sex with Marilyn Manson.  In a few years I have a feeling she'll need to replace her vagina.  A word from Rose: "You know how often guys say, 'You smell just like a rose.' To which I say, 'You look just like a dipshit." It isn't very nice to rudely shoot down a fellow when he attempts to woo you.  His pick up lines may suck, but he may have a good heart, or a Porsche. Stem the rose with some more pics after the jump!
