Conan’s Debut Brings Big Numbers To TBS

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Talk about vindication. Conan O’Brien’s first night on the job brought in boffo ratings for the basic cable network. Roughly 4.2 million viewers tuned in to watch “Conan” on TBS. Not only did in bring huge numbers, but it delivered a median age of 30. Those are the kind of numbers, executives love to see. The premiere easily beat out his competitors including “The Late Show with David Letterman“, “The Tonight Show“, “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report“. It also gave a huge lead-in to “Lopez Tonight”, probably giving that show it’s highest numbers ever. President of Turner Entertainment Networks released the following statement:

“Conan’s audience has been very vocal online, and he clearly made a smooth transition from Twitter to TBS.. Conan delivered an extraordinary audience and stands out as the youngest talk show on television.”

I’m 100% certain sometime this morning Conan and his crew were having mimosas to celebrate their victory. On the flip side, somewhere in LA, Jay Leno and NBC execs were drowning their sorrows in some greasy Denny’s breakfast. Conan’s first guests on his new show were Seth Rogen, “Glee’s” Lea Michele with musical guest Jack White. Tonight, Conan will welcome guests Tom Hanks, Jack McBrayer and Soundgarden. Upcoming guests include Jon Hamm, Fistful of Mercy and Charlyne Yi on Wednesday; and Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and Jon Dore on Thursday.

The People’s Choice Awards 2011 nominees were announced today, covering everything from your favorite TV show, actor and guest star to your your favorite new artist, viral video, or TV guilty pleasure. With over 40 categories, I decided to narrow down a list of some of the categories you’d be most interested in (or let’s be real here…the ones I was most interested in) so you can vote on who you think should win.

This is the 37th Annual PCA, and the nominees will take the stage on January 5th, 2011. Who do you think should win in some of the key categories? Go through the list below and vote for your favorites!

Considering the only movie above that I’ve seen is Alice In Wonderland, I’d vote for that but my gut tells me that either Toy Story 3 or Twilight will take this one. I was going to rent Toy Story 3 the other day, but instead got Titanic 2, which turned out to be one of the worst decisions I’ve ever made. In my defense, I also finally watched The Hangover which was a riot.

Hey everyone. Sorry for the delay with this week’s recap. It took forever for iTunes to update “The A-List: New York” last night. By the time 3am hit, I was dunzo and decided to watch it this morning instead. So enough beyotching, and on to the drama. Normally, I pick my own quote from the show to use for my title, but this week was summed up so perfectly by the official episode title, I had to use it. No lying, the entire show was comprised of texting drama and the tears following it. In other words. purrrrrrfection. Then when you throw in catty gossip sessions complemented with LOL one-liners from TJ Kelly, the entire hour was magic.

Previously on “The A-List”, Rodiney and Reichen were in relationship bliss, Austin and Derek had their own version of fireworks on Independence Day and Mike and Ryan shared colonic stores. Tasty. So what do the boys of Chelsea and Brooklyn (found out my girl, TJ, was from a different borough) have in store for us this weekend. Check out below.

Nelly & Kelly Back Together Again For New Duet

In: Donovan, Music

Back in 2002 Nelly and Kelly Rowland had a huge hit with their duet, “Dilemma“. Hoping lightning strikes twice, the two have joined forces once again for a new collaboration. “Gone” was penned by Rico Love and produced by Jim Jonsin. It serves as another single from Nelly’s forthcoming album, “Nelly 5.0” which is scheduled to hit stores November 16th.

The new track follows the same pattern as their original hit by pandering to both pop and R&B audiences. So much so, some critics are calling the new single “Dilemma 2.0“. Even though Nelly says they can never duplicate “Dilemma”, they sure are going to try their hardest. Who can blame them? That single was one named one of “Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs of the Decade“. So instead of duplicating it, he says this new track is more like an extension of the story. LOL. Doesn’t he know the that sequels traditionally suck.

Model Behavior: Jeff Tomsik

In: Donovan, Fashion

For this week’s selection for my “Model Behavior” series, I choose 6’1″ stud, Jeff Tomsik. He’s been the face for Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle and Polo. His discovery is a bit of a fairy tale one. Back in Ohio, Tomsik was a garbage man before he decided to stop by an open casting call. It was here where famed photographer, Bruce Weber, discovered him and quickly scored him a modeling gig for Hollister Co. His face was all over the company’s shopping bags for months. The rest they say is history.

With his blond boy-next-door good looks, he became a favorite for photographers to shoot. Including Bruce Weber, he’s worked with Jeremy Kost, Richard Gerst, Tony Duran, Gregory Vaughn and many more. Given his perfectly sculpted body, Tomsik has no hang-ups showing it off. In fact, if you do a quick google search, you can see if the carpets match the drapes. When asked what his favorite part of his body is, the 24-year-old says his eyes are it. I couldn’t agree more. I could get lost in those baby blues for hours.

In honor of Wynter Gordon releasing her first EP today, titled “The Last Dance“, I thought I’d share my recent “Dirty Talk” session with the singer. I wish. Unfortunately, it was all business with just a dash of girl talk. What I would’ve given for a good ol gossip session. I digress.

Wynter has been in the industry for years writing hit songs for artists such as J-Lo, Danity Kane and Mary J. Blige, including the title track for Mary’s multi-platinum, Grammy nominated album “The Breakthrough“.  She was also featured on Flo Rida’s hit track “Sugar” last year.

This summer she became a gay favorite when her club hit “Dirty Talk” became a summer anthem. Since then, she’s been busy establishing herself as the next dance diva with wicked tracks like “I’m A Believer” with the Freemasons and “I Feel Love” with Rhythm Masters and MYNC. Not only is she an in-demand songwriter, but now she’s also a sought-after vocalist for some of today’s hottest DJs.

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Here’s some Entertainment Tonight gossip about Entertainment tonight. As we know, Mary Hart has decided to leave the show, but word just hit the street that 44 year old Nancy O’Dell, former host of Access Hollywood will be her replacement. That won’t be much of a change for her!

Last week, Rick and Cheryl were eliminated with a shock. Two stars who have topped the leader board have gone home yet Bristol, who has been on the bottom, seems bullet proof. Tonight, the stars must compete with two dances. One classic ballroom and one Instant Dance where they have already learned the dance and style but won’t know the song until it is revealed LIVE tonight. This going to be a doozy and while absolutely separate the sheep from the wolves. Lets begin!


SONG: “Breathe (2 AM)” by Anna Nalick
Last Monday, Kyle impressed the judges with his fiery Paso. Bruno said he had the attack of an untrained young bull. This week however, is make it or break it for him. During rehearsals, Lacey is screaming and yelling at Kyle but he finds it hilarious. Last time this couple had the Waltz, Len gave Kyle a big scolding for his improper footwork. Now that the competition is tight, its time for Kyle to pull up. Lacey is wearing the most beautiful green dress and Kyle looks dapper in his suit. The couple is connected well right off the bat and Kyle looks smooth on the floor with his footwork matching Lacey’s perfectly. Their sweeping movements across the floor show off their musicality. Lacey did some great choreography for this piece and I think it was smart and really gave Kyle a chance to show how much he has grown. I loved it. I’d give it a 9. Len starts off by listing off a bunch of technique he did well during the routine and thought he did well. Bruno says he is charmed by Kyle and thought he became a sophisticated young man through this routine. Bruno also admires Kyle for taking the criticisms and becoming a better dancer. Carie Ann said her crush on Kyle is back. She thought the piece looked like a fairytale come to life. (PS: Did anyone notice Carie Ann’s new, straight and dark hair? Looks good, right?)

Carie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 27 out of 30

After the scores, Kyle and Lacey pick their song for their Instant Dance. They picked “Good Golly Miss Molly” by Little Richard. They head off to go practice.
