SHOCKING NEWS! Running out of ideas as to how to save the show, the producers of The Simple Life finally resorted to Plan D:  Cancel the show altogether. It’s no secret that the producers were struggling to make this show work.  Why it took them this long to finally throw in the towel is the $1,000,000 question.  I mean, why did they honestly believe they could develop a show around two leads (a.k.a Paris Hilton …

After seven years of ungodly hours, endless hurricane coverage and forced banter with fans on the streets of New York, weatherman Tony Perkins has decided to leave his post at Good Morning America.  Tired of the commute, Perkins decided it was finally time to live full-time with his family again in Washington, DC.  His last day on ABC will be December 2nd, just after November sweeps. GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts said Tony Perkins’ departure was no …

Wow!  Today was a double-doozy of a day for General Hospital fans.  Not only did we finally get a glimpse of fan favorite Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough,) but we also learned that Rick Springfield (yes, that Rick Springfield) will be making a return to Port Charles.  It has been known for some time now that Robin would be coming back into Jason’s life, but Dr. Noah Drake?  Entertainment Tonight reported earlier this evening that Rick Springfield …

Wow, this is something that I would have tried to keep under wraps for, like, ever. It turns out that Blockbuster has the opportunity to purchase rent-by-mail DVD service Netflix back in 2000, but turned it down. Instead, the company went on to partner with Enron in a 20-year video-on-demand deal - but we all know how that turned out. Now, Netflix is worth about $1.4 billion smackers, while Blockbuster is trying to keep afloat at …

Damn VH1 for creating another train wreck/TV show that I will be compelled to watch!  As if I didn’t have enough Fall TV to catch up on, now I will have to set aside time so that I can watch stars embarrass themselves - or, at least I hope they will.  Scheduled to start later this month, “But Can They Sing?” will feature nine C-list (or are they D-list?) celebrities vying for the grand title.  …

It’s true - 2006 is going to be the year that the HDTV begins its foray into the mainstream culture of America. A few colleagues have told me that they expect record numbers for HDTV sales at the beginning of the New Year, with the Super Bowl being broadcast in high def in January, and the Olympics going HD in February. Aside from that, we will see the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 exploit the benefits …

Upon facing the 12th installation of Survivor (10 points to those who can name all the different seasons), Jeff Probst admits that the time may come for him to step down from his hosting throne. Why the change of heart? He’s realized that after doing the same job for so long, he’ll forever be stuck in a reality TV version of soap opera hell. Granted, he did easily transition from Rock & Roll Jeopardy! into Reality …

Today is yet another day that we wish we were as cool as Oprah. I mean, we envy her for being able to get excellent ratings in the 4:00 hour by having people watch her get her ears pierced, but now she is helping to clean up the streets of the U.S. Last week Oprah dedicated a full show to explaining the dangers of sex offenders. During the broadcast, Oprah promised $100,000 to anyone who led …

Katie Couric Disrobes for TV

Categories: NBC, News,

As a follow up to her 2000 television stunt, Katie Couric decided to expose more of herself to her TV viewers this week - by exposing her breasts.  No nudity was exactly involved, but she did allow cameras to film her during a mammogram. A worthy stunt?  Yes.  This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month after all, and Katie’s televised colonoscopy in March 2000 - inspired by her husband’s death in 1998 to colon cancer - sparked …
