Report: The Muppets return to TV this Wednesday night…

This Wednesday night at 8 p.m. on NBC, the peacock station will air ,”A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa”, which marks a huge return of the Muppets to TV. Will the show get strong ratings for this one? We’ll have to wait and see. I personally think this is a test to see if America still cares for the Muppets, since there is a new Muppet movie in the works.

I’ll indeed be watching since I love the Muppet characters and they deserve a huge comeback. The last few Muppet movies were terrible failures in the box office. Lets hope the new upcoming Muppet movie will live up to the “Great Muppet Caper” and “The Muppets Take Manhatten” which are the two best Muppet films.

Animal and Gonzo has always been my favorite characters out of the whole gang.

Does anyone out there enjoy the Muppets still? Sound it off in the comments below.

Cool Video: Amy Poehler’s SNL goodbye message…

Last night was Amy Poehler’s final show on SNL and she did a special goodbye message on the Weekend  Update.

See it here:

It’s sad to see her go. Amy was one of the last remaining big name star on SNL and now the show has no big name stars with her being gone. Which is good. It’ll give other new SNL stars a chance to become a big name.

Which SNL star could possibly become the next big name? Andy Sandberg is heading up there. So is Seth Myers.

I see Amy Poehler doing more appearances on “30 Rock” with her friend Tina Fey. So I don’t see Amy leaving NBC for good. Not too worries.

Report: NBC unveils “The Jay Leno Show”…

Since the shocking announcement that Jay Leno is staying put on NBC, the peacock station just revealed more details on the new show. The name of the show is simply titled “The Jay Leno Show”. Like I said in a post before, the show will be basically the same thing as “The Tonight Show”. Making jokes about current news, two celebrity interviews and a musical guest. Guitarist Kevin Eubanks and the rest of the “Tonight Show” band will stick with Leno as well.

When Conan makes the move to “The Tonight Show” replacing Leno, I wonder if Max Weinberg the drummer and his band will move along with Conan or will they stay put at Jimmy Fallon? I would hate to see Max Weinberg and Conan O’ Brien apart, it would be weird to see, and I hope NBC keeps them together even if Conan is moving to “The Tonight Show”.

Max Weinberg friggin rules, he’s funny as hell and plus he’s one badass drummer.

BREAKING NEWS: Jay Leno is staying put at NBC late night!!!!

Just when everyone thought that Jay Leno is retiring from TV late night and leaving NBC studios, it seems that Leno changed his mind and the iconic talk show host isn’t leaving anytime soon!!!

NBC announced they will give Leno a deal where he can appear on NBC at the 10 p.m. hour. They also gave Leno a better pay deal as well. Leno is reportedly to make $40 to $50 million a year for his 10:00 p.m. slot. He’ll be able to buy more cars and motorcycles!!!

Jay Leno’s move will be similar to how he usually have his shows. You know, the usual making fun of news reports, interviews with two celebrities and a musical guest. Jimmy Fallon will take over Conan O’ Brien when Conan moves to an earlier hour on March 4th.

Jay will never retire, he’ll be doing late night ’til the day he dies. What a copout!!!! I don’t like Jay Leno that much and I was hoping that he would be gone but nope. I think Conan’s the best late night host, I watch Conan all the time. Conan makes me laugh, Jay doesn’t.

EDIT TO ADD: On a side note, the only reason NBC is paying Leno more is that they are doing whatever it takes to make him stay at NBC. NBC doesn’t want him to leave.

BREAKING NEWS: Rosie O’ announces her variety show on NBC is cancelled!!!

Poor Rosie O’ Donnell, it seems that she can’t get any love no matter what TV show she does. In the “Ask Ro” section on her website a fan asks her if “Rosie Live” on NBC will continue and Rosie said it will not.

She admitted that the show had low ratings and negative feedback from viewers.

More on it here:

NBC did a smart thing and good fucking riddance. They were insane to put her on TV the day before Thanksgiving to begin with.

Lets hope the Osbournes and John Mayer will do good on their variety shows. Whether the Osbournes and John Mayer do good or not, they’ll still be watcheable and likeable ’cause hey, they are the Osbournes and John Mayer, America likes them.

While it is good that Variety Shows are starting to make a comeback, they need to find the right hosts. Variety shows like the Sonny and Cher show, The Smothers Brothers, the Johnny Cash Show, the Muppets, were all great. I don’t think Variety shows today would be in the same league as the classic ones.

BREAKING NEWS: Barbara Walters beats Rosie in the ratings, LOL!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!

The ratings are in folks!!!! And guess what!!! Barbara Walters special last night when she interviewed Barack and Michelle Obama scored an 11.7 viewers while “Rosie Live” premiere only scored 5 million viewers.

5 Million viewers for Rosie’s show isn’t good at all.

More on it here:

Did NBC actually think America would watch this stupid crap? It’s a good thing America watched Barbara Walters instead last night.

Pull the plug on the show NBC. Give the show to Ellen instead. Ellen can pull in ratings, not that fat hog who is a no talent hack.

The ratings tanking is no surprise, I’m hoping last night’s Rosie show will be the first and last.

Report: “Rosie Live” premiere getting mixed reviews by NBC fans…

Over at the NBC message boards, NBC fans are giving the show not so positive reviews, many of the fans reveiws in this thread I’m about to post here are a lot more nastier and harsh than my review of the show.

Read this hilarious thread here:

http://boards.nbc.com/nbc/index.php?showtopic=808245

Some love it but looks to me that most hate it. This is a show you either love or hate. Sorry Rosie, but this show isn’t going to last long. If she quits her stupid feuding with other celebs such as Donald Trump and Barbara Walters, maybe she would get more respect.

Speaking of Donald Trump, we all know he won’t make an appearance on the show, but I’m sure he watched the premiere, not to be entertained, just to have fun laughing and making fun of her to see how stupid she looks on screen.

I can’t wait for the Donald to write his review of the Rosie Live premiere on his blog, he hasn’t yet, but we all know he will when he gets around to it:

http://www.trumpuniversity.com/blog/index.cfm

It will be funny if the Donald demands NBC to close down her show, LOL!

I’ll keep an eye on the ratings report of “Rosie Live” to see how the debut of the show did. I hope the ratings tank.

Thought: “Rosie Live” premiere…a disaster…

I tried to watch her variety show premiered now as I type this and I can’t even get through the first half hour. I wonder how the ratings would do on this first episode. I would be surprised if the ratings are even so high. Rosie is a horrible host, a bad actress, and her speaking voice is just awful. I switched the channel in the first half hour, that’s enough for me.

Even the Nancy Grace segment interupting her show calling Rosie a bully and threatening lawyers at her on public TV wasn’t even funny. Everyone knows that was a stupid act and scripted.

John Mayer’s upcoming variety show would be better than this piece of garbage. I would suggest everyone else change the channel to help the ratings get lower. That way it’ll be faster for the show to get cancelled. Rosie is a fat pig who doesn’t deserve her own TV show.
