Development Watch: America’s Funniest New Shows



Because we just can’t get enough of America’s Funniest Home Videos, we are thrilled to hear about two new shows slated to air in the coming months. USA has ordered a new pilot called eBaum’s World, inspired by the website of the same name where people can post their funny home videos  and clips.  Meanwhile, Ultimate Blunders on TLC showcases some of our dumbest moments. 

Lets just hope both shows land hosts with the wit and candor of Tom Bergeron. (thanks Cynopsis)

Zimbalist Movement



Pierce Brosnan has five (!) projects currently in the works: Seraphim Falls, The Topkapi Affair, Mexicali, Butterfly on a Wheel, Instant Karma. Yet tragically, he doesn’t want to do a movie based on Remington Steele, which was the most awesome show ever. He can’t be swayed with money, so let the passionate letter-writing campaign commence!

Hunting While Hunted



This might be the most awesome game ever, of all time, for serious.  Wrap your brain around THIS: a mash-up up classical games Duck Hunk and 1945, that requires you to shoot ducks AND enemy Nazi soldiers.  Win the war while killing your dinner!  Check it out!

Lush Life


Drunk Kiefer Sutherland stories are my absolute favorite. From what I hear, just about everybody living in LA has one. Here’s the most recent (from Page 6)Kiefer_1 

"24" STAR Kiefer Sutherland shocked staffers at the Ye Rustic Inn in Los Feliz, Calif., the other morning when he bellied up to the bar around 9 a.m. demanding to start a tab, reports Steppin’ Out magazine. Editor Chaunce Hayden says the normally thick-waisted Sutherland looked "rail-thin" when he entered the tiny dive bar with a group of rowdy pals and ordered a round of drinks. According to witnesses, when presented with the bill, Sutherland claimed his wallet was "indisposed" – "It’s been stolen! I promise I’ll come back and pay." At that point, things got weird. "He started to go into a series of karate kicks in the middle of the floor while the bartender, waitress and several customers looked on," Hayden reports.

Don’t these people know who they’re dealing with??? That’s Jack Bauer! Don’t charge him! God knows what he’s capable of. And c’mon, we’ve all seen 24… the guys’ been through a lot.
