MADtv, which I didn’t even realize was still on, has recruited their latest cast member through YouTube. Lisa Donovan, who moved to Los Angeles to become an actor, previously auctioned for MADtv, but didn’t get the gig. She started her own production company, Zappin Productions, where she created a number of short films. Her videos are available on YouTube, and were popular enough to be featured on the home page. MADtv‘s casting director found the videos …

Super Bowl Sunday—Time for a Bigger TV

This one floored me. Is the Super Bowl so important an event that people need to rush out and buy a bigger TV? Does a larger TV enhance the action of the big game? Or is this just an excuse for people to upgrade their screen size? According to a survey by the Retail Advertising and Marketing Association (RAMA), approximately 2.5 million consumers are planning on making an upgrade for Super Bowl Sunday. This number …

Rumor: Paula Abdul to be Replaced

When I first read the gossip that Paula Abdul might be replaced on American Idol, I figured it was true. Her strange behavior seems to be begging for her to get the boot. Then I read a bit more and saw that Courtney Love may be her replacement. Huh? Seems it would be in Idol producers’ best interest to replace one incoherent judge with someone reliable, and… I don’t know… coherent? The rumor comes from …

Prepare for the guest appearances, as we head into February sweeps. Ugly Betty will be adding Lucy Liu and Jerry O’Connell to the roster for brief guest star appearances. Liu, who is no stranger to television after appearing on Ally McBeal, will be seen in two episodes beginning on February 15th. Her role should be fun (how could it not be, with this irresistible actress)—she’ll be playing a college classmate of Daniel Meade’s (Eric Mabius). …

Armed & Famous Gets the Axe

Seems the writing was on the wall for Armed & Famous from the get-go. As far as reality series go, this premise was a doozy. B-list celebs helping to keep the peace as police officers in Muncie, Indiana—well, I suppose there are worse reality shows on, but this one seemed particularly ill-fated. When the highlight of the short-lived series is watching celebrities get tasered, you know it’s got nowhere to go but down. And down it …

ABC Moves ‘Knights of Prosperity’

ABC must have some faith in the new comedy The Knights of Prosperity—they’ve decided to move the new show to a time frame that isn’t against American Idol. I’m not so sure the show is worth saving, but compared to In Case of Emergency, which Knights has been paired with, seems they are making the better choice about which to move. If you haven’t seen it, Knights features Donal Logue and a team of rag-tag …
