Richard Dawson was famous for his role on Hogan’s Heroes but he was really the man who made the Family Feud an internationally renowned game show. But sometimes you’d get confused whether you were watching the Feud or the Kissing Game.

We are stuck in the hotel room and we found America’s Got Talent on the TV. Dude, this is just the Gong Show with three unfunny hosts instead of the awesome Chuck Barris. I keep screaming “hit the gong!” Not only does America have no talent, no one can figure out to program a Prime Time lineup.
Well, I’m just assuming he’s gay because anyone this upset with a dancing show must be, amiright?
From WISN here;
A rural man blasted his TV with a shotgun after watching Bristol Palin’s “Dancing with the Stars” routine, sparking an all-night standoff with a SWAT team.
67-year-old Steven Cowan became enraged while watching Palin dance on Monday evening. He felt Palin was not a good dancer.
He went to his bedroom and returned to the living room with a shotgun and blasted the TV, then pointed the gun at his wife, who managed to escape and call police. Tactical officers surrounded the house and finally managed to talk Cowan out Tuesday morning.
Hey, those ingenious robot autodialers we Tea Party folks put together are really working! LOL Look, I don’t even watch the show since I produce normal testosterone levels and am an avowed heterosexual. But if moonbats’ heads are exploding, I might have to tune in. Thanks to Moonbattery.
This is a Disney Animated Christmas Special directed by Pixar’s John Lasseter, featuring special operative elves that prep Santa’s Landing Zones for present delivery. There is a scene at the end featuring a snow globe, and when it comes on Cartney runs to grab and turn on his own snow globe. There are too many cute metaphors, codenames, and other movie and military references to list, so just check it out at Hulu below:
My wife got me the Complete Season 1 of Big Bang Theory on DVD. Yay!
I love the show and watch it religiously, but am really enjoying the DVD’s because they are in a higher definition and wider screen than my standard definition TV. I didn’t realize how much I was missing watching the show in standard format. You can get your copy here.
Also, you can really admire the gear the geeks on the show wear. For instance, you can really see the various cool belt buckles that Howard Wolowitz shows off and you can never get enough of Sheldon’s t-shirts. I really love the original NES controller buckle here:
In fact, you can buy the gear here at Sheldon’sShirts.Com.
I see a lot of hits on my logfiles for Russians google searching for photos of Dr. House, and they tend to correlate with Tuesday. So I’m guessing that the Ruskies love the cranky Dr. Gregory House as much as we do. And I don’t know why, but I think it’s cool to imagine Hugh Laurie speaking with a Russian accent and treating his patients with disdain.
But I don’t think Dr. House could have saved this Russian woman who parked her car, stepped out, and fell into a pit of boiling water! Now that’s a bad day at the office.
From Reuters here:
A Russian woman who fell into a pit of boiling water after parking her car died Tuesday from burns, a hospital official said.
The hole was caused by a ruptured underground heating pipe.
“She parked her car, left it, and immediately found herself in boiling water,” said an official at the Military Medical Academy in Russia‘s second city of St. Petersburg.
A man who tried to rescue the 57-year-old woman also suffered burns but was in stable condition, the official said.
Most Russian cities have ageing municipal late autumn when the system is switched on for the winter.which pump boiling water under the streets and into houses. Ruptures regularly occur in
Dinner hour around my house is usually between 6 and 7 PM, and since the dining room is right next to the living room, we usually have the TV on. And unfortunately, the station is usually on Everybody Loves Raymond. We aren’t the hugest fans of the show, but we’ve seen all of the Jerry Seinfeld reruns and the Friends reruns and Raymond is often as funny as it is annoying.
Around mouthfuls of food Jess and I usually argue about who is more detestable in that marriage on TV- Raymond for being such a selfish twat or Debra for being such a shrill nagging shrew. We agree that they should be either divorced or murder-suicided, which would be sad for their bratty kids that are always running through the house screaming for some reason. But enjoy the video, it made me laugh out loud.
If Terry “Hulk Hogan” Bollea really “knew best” as his VH-1 TV series claimed he did, he wouldn’t have let his simpleton son Nick watch Fast and the Furious too many times and wouldn’t have let his homely tone-deaf daughter Brooke think she was a pop star, which she’s NOT.
Now that Nick is facing jail time for almost killing his friend in yet another high speed smash-up, the pressure is really straining the marriage. Linda Bollea wants out and she wants her share of the Florida properties and alimony.
From the AP here:
Hulk Hogan’s wife said in a divorce petition that she wants a share of the family’s two multimillion-dollar Florida properties plus alimony and child support for their 17-year-old son.
Linda Bollea filed for divorce from Hogan — whose real name is Terry Bollea — last week after 24 years of marriage. The petition says the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”
Linda Bollea also seeks an unspecified amount for alimony and child support for their 17-year-old son, Nick, who was arrested this month in connection with a traffic crash that left a passenger with severe brain injuries.
The Bolleas have starred for four seasons in the VH1 reality show “Hogan Knows Best,” which chronicles the lives of the famous wrestler and his family, including daughter Brooke, 19.
I guess next season’s episodes will feature Terry getting a job at Arby’s to help pay his alimony.
Kinda. They have a new show coming out called “Celebrity Rehab.” They should make it a gameshow like I suggested to do here several years ago.
No word if Whitney will be smoking crack on the show.
From Fox News here:
Videos of celebrity has-beens using illegal drugs or simulating drug use are circulating on YouTube in clips apparently taken from a forthcoming VH1 show about fallen stars in rehab.
“Celebrity Rehab,” scheduled to premiere Jan. 10, will track celebrities gone bad as they go through treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.
Among the nine former stars expected to be featured are “American Idol” finalist Jessica Sierra, porn star and onetime California governor hopeful Mary Carey, actor Daniel Baldwin, actress Brigitte Nielsen and former pro wrestler Chyna, according to The New York Post.
Dr. Drew Pinsky will host the show; filming is under way in Pasadena, Calif.
I like Dr. Drew and admire the work he does with addiciton. But this show will be more of a train-wreck than a serious discussion about overcoming addicitons.
I think Dr. Phil may be credited with dragging Katherine Lester back from the West Bank. She ran there to be with a wannabe terrorist dirt farmer she met on MySpace called “Abdullah Psycho.”
Looking for meal-ticket to USA citizenship.
It seems Abdullah is abusive and disrespectful to Katherine, calling her a whore and a slut, and calling her family members a bitch. And if Katherine refuses to marry him and bring him to the USA, he will find some other gullible girl from the US, marry her, then track Katherine down to kick her ass.
From the show transcripts:
“Your concern is that his agenda is to marry an American,” Dr. Phil says.
“I believe that’s the only reason he’s got her there. He wants to be in America,” Katherine’s great aunt says.
“He told you if he didn’t marry her, he’d find another American girl?”
Tamara says Abdullah told her daughter that if Katherine would not marry him, he’d find another American girl, come to the States and track Katherine down to “whip her ass.”
Dr. Phil asks about the code words that Katherine and her family agreed on, in case she was in trouble but couldn’t communicate it. Mary believes Katherine used part of them over and over in a phone conversation, but Katherine denies this.
“Do you ever talk about the code word in front of him?” Shawn asks.
“No, he doesn’t even know about them,” Katherine says.
“I want to be sure you understand that if and when you feel that you need to get out of there, that I will cause you to have an envoy, an escort, the money to get out of there, and a ticket to get back to the United States,” Dr. Phil tells Katherine. “If you need to get out of there, I will have you picked up, transported and flown back to the United States, and we’re going to provide you a number that you can call to trigger that sequence of events.”
“OK. Thank you. Thank you very much,” Katherine says.
Dr. Phil questions Abdullah about getting his visa papers to join Katherine when she comes home. He’s had two years to do it but hasn’t yet. Abdullah explains that he’s been asking questions at the American Embassy about how to get the right papers, but he hasn’t filled out any forms yet.
“Katherine has always had the demeanor that she is better than everybody else, but with Abdullah, she is very submissive,” Mary says. “I have heard him several times call her a slut, a whore, a no-good, rotten bitch, and she would just listen. She never said a word back.”
“I would like to come home, but does it have to be today or tomorrow? Can it be, like, in a few days?” she asks.
According to this story here, she is back on US soil. I do not know yet what will become of the relationship. We will have to tune in to see.
The series will have a third part that will air in a couple of weeks centering around Lester’s decision to come back to Michigan, said Wade Simpson, a segment producer with the program.
Lester returned to Michigan about a week and a half ago, Simpson said.
Thanks again to Trench for bird dogging this story.
