In this episode, Neil Estep and Veronica Santiago hit you with their theatrical review of School for Scoundrels. A hapless meter reader (Jon Heder) signs up for a confidence-building course to acquire the self-assurance he needs to win the hand of his dream girl (Jacinda Barrett). But the class turns out to be a bust when it becomes apparent that the teacher (played by Billy Bob Thornton) has designs on the same woman. Michael Clarke Duncan …

She will take on the role of the mystery woman who is working with Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams) to take over Mode magazine. So far, we’ve only seen this mysterious chick wrapped in bandages—who knew that underneath it all was Rebecca Romijn? That unfortunately means curtains for the woman …

On Thursday’s show, she set the record straight, saying “Don’t anybody worry where Rosie’s going. She’s right here.” And the ladies of The View should be lucky that she’s …

The Apprentice Returns in January—With a Twist

The sixth installment of The Apprentice returns in January, with a heavy dose of contestants who are lawyers, plus a Mark Burnett twist. In this season, Burnett will take a page from the book of Survivor and subject each task’s losing team to a less-than-desirable consequence.

Lost Moves to New Time

Bad news for those of us who have an early bedtime. Starting in February, when Lost returns, it will be moving from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The move could potentially assist ABC with the difficulty it has had finding a show that retains a significant audience with Lost as the lead-in. By moving Lost to 10 p.m., the network can lead with a block of comedy and increase viewership with the 10:00 slot. Beginning …

VH1 Big In ‘06 Awards—Big Waste?

I tried to watch the VH1 Big in ‘06 Awards, I really did. But I just couldn’t help thinking this was a colossal waste of time. I love awards shows as much as the next gal, but this one is completely unnecessary. But maybe that’s the point. The event kicked off with host D.L. Hughley telling a bunch of unfunny jokes at rapid fire pace, followed by the first presenters of the night—the cheerleader from …
