NBC spent $613 million to get beaten in the ratings by a CSI,Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and, especially, American Idol. (Perhaps the Olympics would get better ratings if they used amateurs again?) Almost twice as many people watched AI as they did the Olympics on Wednesday when only 17.9 million people tuned in to see what was up at the Turin, I mean Torino, Games. 31.2 million saw AI, 27.4 million saw CSI, 25.4 million saw Grey’s, and 23.5 saw Desperate Housewives. In other words, all the other major networks seem to have had the Best Week Ever! But don’t worry, NBC still kicked PAX’s butts.
You know, when the Kid Rock-Scott Stapp sex tape showed up yesterday and took the World Wide Web (Information Superhighway) by storm, it seemed like every blogger in the world had some kind of sarcastic, "Ugh, I just threw up in my mouth" reaction to the preview clip. Your first thought might even have been something like, "Gross, I don’t want to see this!" That would be a big mistake.
Personally, I happen to think this has the potential to be the greatest Celebrity Sex Tape yet. I mean, not since Pam and Tommy’s Love Boat have we heard anything as undeniably genius as Stapp’s turning to the camera and unironically declaring, "It’s good to be the King".
You know, as the lead singer of a Christian band, maybe this is Scott’s way of emulating Jesus’ controversial decision to hang out with Mary Magdalene, a Biblical woman of ill repute. Though I definitely don’t remember any Bible verses where Jesus says, "It’s good to be the King of Kings."
Anyway, this got me thinking about other Celebrity Sex Tapes I’ve seen, and things I’ve learned from them…
In this week’s issue, the magazine is just reminding the actress that she’s almost 40. It’s not bad enough that she’s now "living in a small rented beachfront home in Malibu, Calif." They also want her to know people have talking about her. I mean some one even said, "She’s almost 40, and she has no husband, no baby and no Oscar. I think it’s a scary time for her."
Look, Star is just worried about her that’s all. And would it kill her to pick up the phone and call sometimes?
Not only is she a great actress, a beautiful woman, very smart, and apparently a good mother, but Julianne Moore can talk basketball with Samuel L. Jackson! Plus, she loves American Idol and even called in to vote during the first season! (Yes, I’m watching The View.) By the way, she totally ruled in The Ladies Man. You should check it out.
