Is Big Brother 12 Going To Be The Last?

Scouting around the ‘net, in anticipation for yet another season of our glorious summer staple, Big Brother, I found this little tidbit for y’all to peruse. Keep in mind, nothing is confirmed with CBS/BB either, this is all speculation and as the source site states as well, the UK version of Big Brother will be concluding after this next season, so there may have been confusion with that. And as always, you can join us in our forum to discuss!

So, in a recent interview with BuddyTV, James Rhine has stated that there was a rumor circulating amongst BB veterans that the 12th season would be the last. The network hasn’t made any statement regarding this, and one would think it would obviously depend on the ratings for this upcoming season as to whether or not it would be renewed. Considering the aridness of television during the summer, I would think that something that’s been going on for as long as Big Brother has would be renewed. What would CBS fill in all those timeslots with?

Bret Michaels Rumored to replace Simon on American Idol

[singlepic id=248 w=120 h=200 float=right]Since performing on the finale of American Idol in May, Bret Michaels has now emerged as the new favorite to replace Simon Cowell as an American Idol judge, who has now left an open seat at the judges table after nine seasons. The show, and Simon himself, took note of the reception Bret Michaels received that night, and is now looking a bit closer at him, sources say.

Michaels had said that he ignored the advice of his MDs, and did the show anyway, performing a duet with 3rd place finalist Casey James. Michaels, who as you know has been in and out of the hospital recently is still recovering from his near fatal brain hemorrhage and recent stroke, received a standing ovation from the Idol crowd when he came out crooning “Every Rose has it’s Thorn.”


Gary Coleman, Dead at 42.

[singlepic id=245 w=180 h=100 float=left]Just heard the horrible news that Gary Coleman has passed away at the age of 42 from a brain hemorrhage. Coleman gained his stardom after playing younger brother “Arnold” on the hit series ‘Different Strokes’ in 1978 at the tender age of 10.  In his later years, he had been plagued with…

So You Think You Can Dance Season Debut!

[singlepic id=246 w=320 h=240 float=left]Do we have any SYTYCD fans out there?  Yeah, I am most definietly one of them.  I just love watching, and wishing, that I could dance like that.

The 2010 season started off very nice, with some terrific dancers!  Most notably missing from the action however was Mary Murphy, whom I know many, many people miss dearly.  I was a fan of her dance knowledge, but not so much the screaming fits she would have.  To each their own thought!  Many in our forum outright miss her and think the new panel is too subdued.  I actually enjoyed it.  I am also very happy to see Mia Michaels returning to the show, and really hope she will be choreographing many of the dances this year.  No one beats her in my opinion.  She has always been the choreographer on the dances that touch me most.

The dancer that made it through that stood out the most to me last night however was Teddy.  You may remember him last year, little blond kid who was wearing a very stand out lime green with plaid-ish shirt – I loved his dancing last year, seemed whimsical.  Last year unfortunately, he didn’t make it out of the Vegas rounds.  This year for his audition, he dressed all in a black suit and tie, and did an incredible, and incredibly sad dance, seeming to end with a sad little boy deciding to end his life.  It was certainly touching, and he had so emotion in it.  It was terrific.

Now for those of you that are fans of the show, you know that this year, SYTYCD powers that be have decided to change up the format.  This year, instead of 20 contestants (10 couples) they have decided to only go with 10 contestants.  Dancing as their partner with them will be “All-Stars” from seasons past.  I am really excited to see some of the All Stars they plan on bringing back.  I have included a list of the “All Stars” due to come back to dance this season at the bottom of this post.  Also different this year, only one dancer will leave each week, and they will switch partners weekly.


Alicia Keys, pregnant and engaged!

[singlepic id=242 w=120 h=140 float=right]It has been reported that Alicia Keys is now expecting her first child, and is engaged to be married to Producer Swizz Beatz.  Beatz has written songs for such artists as Beyonce, Jay Z and many others.  Beatz was married previously and has two children of his own.  They plan on…


…and the winner of American Idol is…

[singlepic id=243 w=320 h=240 float=left]So another season of American Idol has come to a close.  How would I wrap up the season?  Well, there were a few good moments, and many boring ones.  I myself was a huge Crystal fan, and thought the final two were the perfect choice.  America got that part of it right.  Crystal deserved the win for sure, having many more great moments during the season than Lee had, however I don’t think she needed it as much as Lee did, so the winning choice still made me happy.  Now I know there are many out there that did not prefer the fawning over Crystal that the judges seemed to do, I myself thought it appropriate however since in my opinion she was that good.  Last year though, I was on the other end of that statement, thinking Adam did not deserve the fawning, so I know it all comes down to taste.

The finale:  Now I don’t know if it’s my age, my taste, a little bit of both, but I personally thought this was one of the best finales AI had ever had.  It almost felt like they called me, and asked who I would like to see perform.  Christina was amazing as usual and I loved her new song, Janet was a terrific surprise although that first song she sang sounded eerily like Michael to me (Plus I would have loved to see Paula out there dancing during “Nasty Boys” seeing as she was a choreographer on the video.  I wonder if they made up yet?  I know they had a major falling out years ago), Michael McDonald was awesome (couldn’t believe he was there since he is noticeably absent from the Doobies ALWAYS), Joe Cocker was great, the Bee Gee’s, Hall and Oates, Chicago, all wonderful, and the surprise visit from Bret Michaels was real neat, although I’m not sure he should be doing things against his doctors orders, probably not smart… I have to say though my favorite moment was Alanis.  The notable change in lyric on “You Oughta Know” (from “Would she go down on you in a theater” to “would she go down with you to a theater”) made me chuckle out loud.  I just wish that segment would have lasted longer, although I know (since I know the lyrics to that song) that there wasn’t too much further they could have gone with that song without getting crazy with the changes or the sensor button!

Whether you have been engulfed by LOST from the beginning, lost all faith in the show, or waver on some electromagnetic fence somewhere, the TV world will be saying goodbye to a show many will claim to have fallen an integral part of television history.

Network Upfronts: NBC unveils 2010-2011 TV Schedule

NBC recently unveiled their 2010-2011 Primetime schedule today, a day before their upfront presentations to advertisers. NBC has added FIVE new comedies, SEVEN new dramas, and ONE new “alternative” program (whatever that really means) in hopes of revamping what many may argue to be one of the weakest networks on television. Click below and visit our forums to see what the new schedule looks like. What will you be watching? What interests you? What sounds like a weak concept?


Let’s Yakkity Yak! May 10th, 2010. An Open Letter to Carol and Brandy of The Amazing Race 16, And Congratulations to Dan and Jordan For Winning!

Welcome back, didja miss me? Anyways, here we are again, with Let’s Yakkity Yak! And this is a special edition because I’m so disgusted by one thing I saw on last night’s finale and also so pleased with another part so I have to devote my column to just that. If you have any comments or thoughts, join us here!

Alright, so let’s start with the fun stuff. Congratulations to brothers Dan and Jordan for being the winners of The Amazing Race 16!!! dan-and-jordanSure, they were somewhat annoying here and there throughout the race, but they were true fans of the race and ran it well, deserving the win. In fact, this is the first season where I’ve liked all three teams at the end, so I didn’t mind who won. But I know that the brothers have watched every season and love this show so it’s great to see them fully realize their dream. Yes, I was a Jeff and Jordan fan and still am, love them! But aside from them, am glad to see who won the whole thing. It was truly awesome to see that they’d written down all the eliminations and non-eliminations from the season in anticipation of that last challenge. So smart and that’s what got them the win I believe. So way to go guys!


Let’s Yakkity Yak! May 5th, 2010 – An Open Letter to Carlton Cruse and Damen Lindelof of LOST

Welcome everyone, to another edition of Let’s Yakkity Yak! Today is a special column, it’s an open letter to The Powers That Be, or TPTB of Lost, Carlton Cruse and Damen Lindelof. Why? Because of what happened on last night’s episode. So, if you haven’t seen last nights’ episode, stop reading now. But if you want, you’re always welcome to join us here to discuss it!

lost11An Open Letter to Carlton Cruse and Damen Lindelof, TPTB of LOST. Kiss my jiggly white butt. No, seriously, kiss it. For the last five seasons you’ve convinced me more and more that your core group of Losties are what you center the show around and last night convinced me of it. I’m thoroughly convinced that the only characters you were truly EVER invested in were Hurley, Kate, Jack, Sawyer and Locke/Flocke. The rest of them you didn’t care  one way or the other. Oh sure, you mask it with a heroic death here and there, you throw in some nice sad music and have your precious Core Group cry and sad and all but that’s it. Why even create other characters? Dont’ go past the break here if you dont’ want to know what happened.


Let’s Yakkity Yak! May 4th, 2010

Hello everyone to yet another edition of Let’s Yakkity Yak! How is everyones’ week going? Hopefully as good as mine, but remember, since no one’s found the asshat picture none of you are going to be as good as me! So let’s get down to it. But remember, if you want to talk about it, you should join us here in our forums!


A new study out shows that many parents do not believe that their kids are interested in sex, but also believe that everyone elses’ kids are. salt-n-pepa-lets-talk-about-s-409886 Apparently they have a very hard time thinking about their teenagers knocking boots but see their peer group as highly sexual and sexually predatory. But according to the CDC, via an article on MSN, there were over 400 thousand births to teens aged 15 to 19 in 2006 and this is the bigger one for me, over 6 thousand for kids aged 10 to 14! And I so agree with the CDC’s next point; by viewing their kids as being holy and pure, they’re shifting the responsibility for any potential activity to others. True dat! Let me clue you in, oh disillusioned parents, your kids if not screwing already, are definitely thinking about it. THEY ARE. By denying in your own mind that they have any interest in sex, you are leading them to even more risk because they will not be educated on how to protect themselves. Yes, they’re your baby and you don’t want to think about them doing the deed but if they want to do it, they’re going to find a way and wouldn’t you want them to be educated on the subject and have means to protect themselves? Or would you rather go on denying it and then end up on Dr. Phil blaming someone else when they’re either pregnant, got someone else pregnant, or they have an STD or AIDS? Up to you, but personally I’d rather have my children protected.


So, everyone knows you don’t mess with Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates trilogy. But muggers beware! Don’t try to mug Johnny Depp or mug a friend of his either because he will step in. default_2edb_johnny-depp______Depp was in LA recently with a friend and saw they were getting mugged, so he umped into the gight. The mugger had a broken bottle and approached Depp’s friend, British singer Stephen Jones demanding money. When Depp stepped in the mugger literally said “I ain’t stealing from Captain Jack.” Tehn the mugger dropped the weapon and, get this, Depp gave him some money and told him to straighten up his life. So know this, mess with a friend of Captain Jack and you mess with Jack himself! Good job Johnny!
