As a huge fan of 24, the pictures that surfaced yesterday of Mary-Lynn Rajskub, a.k.a. Chloe locking lips with Rush Limbaugh upset me. I mean, over the past few seasons I’ve seen this woman go through a lot: I’ve seen her suffer through her best friend’s death, I’ve seen her kill a man, I’ve seen her thwart countless terrorist attacks, and I’ve seen her get reamed out by Jack Bauer on more than one occasion. So by this point in life I figured I’d be able to handle whatever Mary-Lynn threw at me. Well, I was wrong.
The Rush photos have upset me deeply. How could Chloe lower herself like this? This is worse than if I were to find out she was in kahootz with Habib Marwan during Season 4. I want to give her the benefit of the doubt, though, so I decided to make a list of 5 good reasons Chloe would date Rush Limbaugh. Here we go.
2. Hmm. Well… uh
3. You know, some girls… no, nevermind.
4. Because… wait, what was the question?
Okay, that didn’t go the way I was hoping it would. Sorry Chloe, I don’t even think Jack Bauer, Bill Buchanan or Sean Astin (before he bit the dust) could help you with this one. I’m just going to cross my fingers and hope the clock is ticking.
Leslie Nielsen. Tim Meadows. Kathy Najimy. No, it’s not the lineup for the next Surreal Life (unfortunately), those are some of the contestants playing The Feud on tonight’s season finale of Gameshow Marathon. I’ll be tuning in for two reasons: (1) Nielsen’s a god, and (2) I’m pretty sure watching this show counts as charity work, so count me in!
If you’re in the mood for a less traditional gameshow tonight, head on over to CBS for Master of Champions. If you’re in the mood for a less traditional gameshow that prominently features Sean “Diddy” Combs, then you should watch Making The Band 3. Or if you’re in the mood for Danny DeVito’s return to TV (and be honest: who isn’t in the mood for that???), check out It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia on FX. So what are YOU watching tonight?

It’s Best Night Ever for Wednesday, June 28th! Shea Hess is here to walk you through the best of Wednesday night TV, including Blue Collar TV, So You Think You Can Dance?, and America’s Got Talent!
With the passing of Aaron Spelling and his prolific TV legacy, we thought it would be appropriate to remember a show Spelling both co-created and used to introduce the world to the acting talents of daughter Tori: Beverly Hills, 90210. This seminal high school soap opera took an unflinching look at social issues from gun violence to AIDS to apartheid, all set within the priviliged-but-melodramatic turmoil of America’s most exclusive zip code. Since most of the original cast left the show between 1994 and 1998, we decided to split the difference and celebrate the would-be 10-year class reunion of West Beverly High School with the following “then and now” look at some it’s most notable alumni.
Name: Dylan McKay/Luke Perry
Then: The personification of early-90′s cool, Dylan McKay might have been West Beverly’s most complicated, tortured individual. Equal parts unwilling object of affection and self-destructive loner, Dylan’s myriad struggles included domestic dilemmas, romantic turmoil, substance abuse struggles and countless other personality conflicts that somehow just made him all the more mysteriously desiriable.
Okay, I’ll be honest: I missed the whole Blade thing. Something about Wesley Snipes and Stephen Dorff fighting vampires or being vampires or being vampires while fighting vampires– sorry, just didn’t do it for me. I laughed at the posters when the first movie came out and I remember being shocked that they made a sequel (or two? I have no idea.) So you can imagine my surprise that the Blade series is now being spun off into a TV show on Spike. Should be interesting. I may give it a try– hey, if they could make Buffy The Vampire Slayer a great show I guess anything is possible.
Also on tonight: Jacques Cousteau’s son is messing with sharks on CBS, people are attempting to dance on Fox, and Criss Angel is freaking some more minds on A&E. So what are you watching tonight? Vote now!
It used to be that performers were the only people in Hollywood who truly required the services of an agent. But in today’s celebrity-obsessed marketplace, the business interests of everything from famous newborns to celebrity body parts have to be looked after by a professional team of agents, publicists, stylists and managers. For example, reader TheJay dropped this recent press release, sent out on behalf actress Anne Hathaway’s breasts, and the latest developments in their promising career. I don’t know about you, but I’ve recently found myself wondering what the “Hathaway Twins” have been up to and when I’m going to get to see them again. Please, in the interest of public breast awareness, keep dropping off the awesome links!
