Anyone in their twenties or thirties today likely has fond memories of the show Pee Wee’s Playhouse, which aired from 1986 to 1991 on CBS.  The wacky, off-the-wall series featured Paul Reubens and an ensemble of characters doing just what you’d expect to do in a playhouse – playing and having a lot of fun. Fifteen years after the show went off the air, it’s back – all 45 episodes! Comedy Central’s Adult Swim is adding …

Leno and Conan Share Jokes?

Okay, so we all accept that late night television hosts comment on the days headlines, but Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien’s opening monologues last night were so similar, I’m starting to wonder if they share a writing staff. And I’m not just referring to content, but down to wording and structure of the jokes. Punchlines in common: Referencing George W. Bush excusing himself from a meeting saying he was going to his room to read. Pause… …

In what has been said to be a complete scheduling coincidence, both Ann Coulter and George Carlin will appear on Wednesday night’s The Tonight Show. Many believe sparks are sure to fly with this combination of conservative versus anti-establishment. Coulter has gained a lot of attention recently, with the release of her book “Godless: The Church of Liberalism” – where she has made unfavorable comments about widows of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In her book, she …

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 …

It’s True: ‘Saved By The Bell’ Will Join Adult Swim

Zap2it has confirmed some shocking news today; the late eighties/early nineties cheesefest Saved By the Bell will join the Adult Swim line-up, known for its wild and eclectic programming. We’re all for originality, but…Saved By the Bell? Seems like the show is being added simply because many Adult Swim staffers carry fond memories of Zack Morris and the gang. In case you were in a coma during the show’s heyday, it follows the adventures of a …

In preparation for Ted Koppel’s departure from ABC News on Oct. 22nd, the network has announced the three anchors who will jointly share his coveted position:  Martin Bashir, Cynthia McFadden and Terry Moran - apparently it takes three people to fill Ted’s shoes.  In addition to the beefed-up team, ABC will also expand Nightline’s one-topic format and devote that time slot to several issues.  Unfortunately, the one-topic format was something that I truly admired about Nightline …
