TBS just announced that it will air a half-hour pilot of a talk show called “Late Night Buffet.” Here’s the twist – it will involve Jim Henson puppets interviewing celebrity guests. No old school Muppets – like Kermit, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, etc. – here though. The show will feature a host named Augustus Pfiffle and his sidekick Delbert Kastle, as well as a late-night band of puppets. TBS plans to mainly target female viewers with this …

Here’s the one I’ve been waiting for! Amazon goes TV. The perpetual non-profit has taken on the tube to sell books and other goods, and Bill Maher is its host. Is book selling really all that funny? Perhaps in the “Amazon Fishbowl” anything is possible. The late-night landscape will now include interviewing artists and authors. Since these folks can pretty much express themselves as seen fit, Maher’s new TV venture will finally be “politically correct!” …

Repercussions Already Brewing Following Oprah’s Evisceration Of James Frey

The power of television - a disgraced man can’t even catch his breath before the lawsuits begin. Ain’t America beautiful?

This debacle has stirred up questions of ethics on a personal level, as well as in the publishing and television worlds. …

Fan favorite Megan Mullally of the soon to be retired Will & Grace is moving on with her career: she’ll be hosting her own television talk show. No doubt fans will be thrilled, but we have to wonder - will she be using the same voice as she did on Will & Grace?

Oprah Reduces James Frey To “A Million Little Pieces”

Talk show powerhouse Oprah Winfrey has accomplished what Larry King could not: she got bestselling author James Frey to admit his best selling ‘memoir’ was largely fictional. The drama was increased by the fact that Oprah Winfrey promoted his book and was largely responsible for it becoming a bestseller. In perhaps the most dramatic Oprah episode ever—which is saying a lot—Oprah cried and audience members booed the formerly popular author. In a stunning switch from dismissive …
