MONDAY (11/22)

  • Rules of Engagement (CBS, 8:30 P.M.): "A sheepish Jeff asks coworkers to sponsor Audrey's 10K charity run after he's told them not to include him in office fundraisers." To be clear, he didn't want shell out money for things he'd have to eat.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9 P.M.): "Charlie spends money wildly for his old lover Courtney, who returns after spending three years in prison." Spending money on a woman who can finally relate to him? Priceless.
  • Skating with the Stars (ABC, 9:11 P.M.): "The series opener of an ice-skating competition that pairs celebrities with professional skaters. Contestants include Vince Neil, Bethenny Frankel and Sean Young." That is one motley crew.

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

MONDAY (11/23)
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Molly fails a Spanish test and decides to stop speaking English until she masters the foreign language.” And you didn’t think anybody learned anything on this channel.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie’s male ego is bruised when he learns that he hasn’t been satisfying Chelsea.” Well, it has been a long time since he was a Hot Shot.
  • Jon & Kate Plus 8 (TLC, 10pm):  “Jon and Kate reflect on changes in their lives and the ups and downs over the years in the series finale.” Just so I’m clear—would Jon’s weight be considered an up or a down?

VIDEO: Why Ewoks and Alcohol Don’t Mix

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Talk Shows, NBC, Video,

If the show producers ever decided to replace Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb for an extra hour of this every day, I might actually start watching.

On today’s Halloween-themed broadcast, we all - even die-hard Stars Wars fans - learned a few new facts about those creatures called Ewoks.

  1. They don’t know crap about decoupage.
  2. They love drinking vodka in the morning.
  3. They know how to moonwalk.
  4. They will kick each other in front of the cameras, even before you even say “Action.”
  5. They will hump anything…whether it be ‘s leg or the ground.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Reality, CBS, NBC, Survivor, News, Video,

UPDATE: Richard’s sister and attorney claim the arrest was a result of him doing the interview.

is having a very interesting day.

Early Tuesday morning, Hatch’s interview with Matt Lauer - the one where he claimed homosexuality was a factor in his wrongful conviction - aired on the Today show. Hours later, the winner was once again behind bars.

Richard, who recently served nearly four years in prison on tax evasion charges, had been under house arrest at his sister’s home in Newport, R.I. Although he was due to be released from home confinement on Oct. 7, he was picked up by authorities today for reasons undisclosed by federal authorities.

VIDEO: Sarah Palin Reacts to the David Letterman Controversy

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Late Night, Talk Shows, CBS,

Eight months ago, who knew David Letterman would see himself in this position? Back in October, John McCain did his best to make amends after famously snubbing the host for the economic crisis. Now it’s David who’s trying to keep the peace…with Sarah Palin.

On Tuesday’s broadcast, Letterman cracked more than a few jokes abut the Alaskan governor’s visit to New York. In addition to comparing Palin’s look to a “slutty fight attendant” (you can see his Top 10 after the jump), he also made references to one of Sarah’s children. Which daughter he was commenting about is part of the issue at hand.

Video: The Cosby Show Cast Reunites on The Today Show

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Talk Shows, NBC,

was a groundbreaking sitcom that hit the airwaves in 1984, spearheaded by the legendary Bill Cosby. There is so much that can be said about The Cosy Show, which was on the air for eight seasons, ending in 1992, but we will leave it to the cast. 25 years after the show hit the air, a large portion of the cast got together on The Today Show to reminisce about memories, moments, and history. We’ve embedded all three segments here, one above and two after the break. If you grew up on The Cosby Show, then you’ll appreciate these clips. If you came into this world a bit too late to get into it, check them out—you’ll soon realize that there is definitely something missing from television these days that The Cosby Show provided.

The Cosby Show 25th Anniversary Commemorative DVD set is available now.

Tom Cruise and Matt Lauer Reunite on the Today Show

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: NBC, Video,

Oh what three years and a change in public perception can do to an actor.

Back in June 2005, Tom Cruise’s press tour for War of the Worlds turned into a war of words between the actor and Matt Lauer. During a memorable appearance on the Today show, Cruise got into a fairly heated discussion about psychiatry (“pseudo-science”), antidepressants (“There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance”) and his critics (“I have never worried, Matt, about what other people think and what other people say.”) Tom also brought the underused word “glib” to everyone’s attention.

Tim Russert’s Son Speaks About His Father

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: NBC, News,

Earlier this morning, Luke Russert took time out to talk with about his his dad. Tim Russert, former host of NBC’s Meet the Press, passed away just two days before Father’s Day.

The 22-year-old, who recently graduated from Boston College, demonstrated great poise and spoke articulately about his parent and friend. I’m sure somewhere out there Tim was feeling quite proud.
