Once again, Jimmy Fallon has proven NBC execs right with their decision to bestow The Tonight Show chair upon him. The 40-year-old late night host consistently entertains with his charming skits and antics.
In honor of The Tonight Show returning to Los Angeles since Jay Leno left, Fallon parodies one of the most beloved and memorable theme songs of the 90s- The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. With the aid of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro, Jimmy films a bang-on recreation. Definitely watch it out below, especially if you’re a fan of Ribeiro doing his signature Carlton dance.
Sounds like your typical course of action when someone puts the proverbial foot in their mouth. Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson is in hot water after making controversial comments in the January 2014 issue of GQ magazine.
It all began when Robertson started to talk about the erosion of morality in America. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong. Sin becomes fine,” he said. Innocent enough, but then it’s all downhill from there, adding “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there — bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
As all good reborn Christians do, he tries to quote the Bible, the Book of Corinthians to be exact.
“Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. … Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
On March 11, 2014, Jay Leno and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are among six of the people being inducted into the 23rd TV Hall of Fame. Television Academy Chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum announced next year’s crop of honorees on Tuesday.
The four-time Emmy Award-winning actress and soon-to-depart late night legend will join more than 130 previously inducted alums. The Television Academy’s Hall of Fame Selection Committee held its first ceremony back in 1984, when Lucille Ball, Edward R. Murrow and Milton Berle were among the first honorees.
“The six individuals being inducted into the Hall of Fame have all made a profound impact on the landscape of television, leaving their own mark within our industry and with audiences around the world,” says CEO Bruce Rosenblum. “Their groundbreaking contributions will last for generations, making them true icons who could not be more deserving of the Television Academy’s highest honor.”
The time has finally arrived. It’s time to crown the Season 5 winner of The Voice? While the main purpose of tonight’s show is to reveal the results, there were plenty other highlights. I’m not even going to sugarcoat it. Lady Gaga’s surprise duet with Christina Aguilera on “Do What You Want” was epic. R. Kelly who? They harmonized beautifully, drank champagne and were overall FIERCE. These two need to head to the recording studio immediately. Check out that performance below, along with the others and the results.
The penultimate episode of The Voice Season 5 is here. The Final 3 get three chances to show America why they deserve this season’s title. Each reprise their audition song, perform a new solo and duet with their mentor. Speaking of mentors, for the first time since Season 1, someone other than Blake Shelton will earn bragging rights. #itsabouttime
Will it be former backup singer Tessanne Chin? She’s certainly been the most consistent. How about Will ‘the little engine that could‘ Champlin? It’s the first time a contestant who’s benefited from the judges save has made it to the finals. Not only once in his case but twice. Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine saved him during the battle and knockout rounds respectively. Let’s not forget the teenage ingenue, Jacquie Lee. Whomever wins, they deserve it. Each have had a defining star-making performance throughout their run.
Be sure to tune in Tuesday night for the season finale when the winner will be crowned. It promises to be an exciting show with performances by this season’s singers along with Lady Gaga, R. Kelly, Celine Dion, Ne-Yo, OneRepublic, and Paramore all scheduled to perform. Without further ado. Let’s get to the performances.
After checking out this video from HBO, I realize I watch a lot of the network’s programming. From Girls, True Blood, The Newsroom, Behind the Candelabra and Game of Thrones, clearly I’m a fan. I should really consider purchasing some stock.
The network released a video highlighting some of their best programming from the past year. It also gives a preview of what’s to come in 2014. Included in that bunch is the highly-anticipated new series Looking.
In addition, we also have footage from Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s Tony award-winning 1985 play The Normal Heart. It follows a group of gay men in New York in the 80s during the HIV/AIDS epidemic spread. It boasts a star-studded cast including Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Mark Ruffalo and Taylor Kitsch. Not sure how I feel about Taylor’s haircut and color, but I digress. The latter two are pictured in the photo above. The Normal Heart is scheduled to air in Spring 2014. Check out the video below.
“It’s a movie about AIDS, but it’s also really a civil rights movie,” says Ryan Murphy, who worked with Kramer on the script for three years. “I think it’s more timely than ever before. It’s really about the quest to be seen, not as a gay person or a straight person but just a person…. It’s an activist movie that also has a really great love story in it.” Adds the director, “Of everything I’ve done in my career, I think it is the biggest labor of love.”
How many chances does a guy get? Gotta give Matthew Perry credit for being so resilient and forge ahead despite numerous failures. If I was him, I’d just sit back and enjoy those Friends royalties. Right?
Since the classic NBC sitcom signed off, Perry has headlined three failed series- two on NBC, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006) and Go On (2012) and one over at ABC, Mr. Sunshine (2011). This time, he’s hoping to have better luck over at CBS.
The 44-year-old is working on a new version of Neil Simon’s Broadway classic, The Odd Couple. The play was previously adapted into a successful TV series back in the 70s starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall. Mad About You‘s Danny Jacobson is the writer on the project. Perry will play Oscar Madison, the messy curmudgeon one.
First and foremost, huge thanks to Daniel Garofali for sending these photos our way. Much appreciated. The stunningly gorgeous stud graces the cover of DNA’s Swimsuit Issue. Those lucky Aussies are enjoying Summer while poor us in North America are in the midst of Winter. BRRRRRR!!!
Photographer Rick Day captures Garofali’s masculine beauty as he wears an assortment of bathing suits, ranging from modest to very revealing. Let’s just say you can almost see the pot of gold at the end of his treasure trail in certain shots. Check out Daniel below writhe and splash around on the beach for the Aussie publication. It’s the perfect way to warm up this cold December day.
