Summer is here. Well, in the TV sense anyway. Shows we’d normally watch on Tuesday night like Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls have already called it a season, which is why we’re forced to expand our horizons starting now. Suddenly, we’re open to checking out Jamie Kennedy’s new MTV show Jamie Kennedy’s Blowin’ Up. Suddenly, it’s okay to watch a Jeff Foxworthy special on Comedy Central. And yes, maybe now’s the time to finally check out Pepper Dennis. I said maybe.
This summer talk might be premature, though. Tonight we still have some quality programming left. We have the season finales of Scrubs, Boston Legal, and NCIS; one of the last remaining episodes of American Idol and an all new House. Not bad. So what are YOU watching tonight? Vote now!
Last night, CNN aired a false start to Bush’s immigration speech and instead cut to The President, 40 seconds early, while he was still practicing his lines. Lines? But we thought his speeches were off-the-cuff. (via Drudge)
It’s Best Night Ever for Monday, May 15th! Bob Castrone is here to walk you through the best of Monday night tv, including Prison Break, 24, and Grey’s Anatomy!
Jake Gyllenhaal spent a nice quiet mother’s day walking on the beach in Malibu with his mom, his dad and his dog. While the family credits openess, love and patience for their closeness, their biggest inspiration is the Banana Republic catalog. (pics via ONTD)
Now, on the surface of this story it would seem as if Paris Hilton was the unwitting victim in some ruffian’s ploy to pilfer the expensive wares she’d previously purchased as a mother’s day gift for Hilton matriarch, Kathy. However, anyone who has ever been to college knows that “I swear I got you a present, but someone stole it off the porch” sounds like just the kind of thing a hungover twenty-five year-old sorority girl might use for an excuse when she’s too busy getting wasted and boning some meathead jock to remember to buy her mom a Mother’s Day gift.
Members of the Academy, here is a clip for your consideration. Of all the TV we watched today, we think this moment from today’s episode of Starting Over was most worthy of a (booty) prize.
Lindsay Lohan’s new boyfriend Jamie Burke, is the lead singer of the New York-based band Carte Blanche. Last month, their fanbase consisted mainly of Brooklyn hipsters. But ever since this picture surfaced last week, 14 year old girls are starting to take note of Carte Blanche. And no one can turn bands into certified rock stars faster than 14 year old girls.
Check out the comments section on their MySpace page. Last month it was littered with private jokes from friends, but this month, their commenters are getting younger and younger and just plain young. While the band still has two gigs scheduled for July at a divey strip club in NYC, thanks to Lohan (who may be the subject of their song “Mystery Girl”) Carte Blanche will be on TRL in no time. And if you want to ride their coattails they’re looking for a drummer.
Not really sure what’s going on with this Skittles commercial, but I really feel like that people who make candy should lay off the hallucinogenics a little bit, as this sorta feels like that scary boat ride from the original Willy Wonka movie.
(There’s another weird one here.)
