Jenny McCarthy Renewed. WHAT!?

 The most ridiculous, loud and pointless show - The Jenny McCarthy Show has been picked up for some strange reason.  It's noise instead of content, you have no idea what's going on, but it's going on for seven more episodes. Michelle Buteau is the best part of the whole thing. Michelle is a great stand up comedian that they made into a Robin Quivers/news woman. Michelle will give an entertainment new headline and then make a quick joke. Then McCarthy and her guest are supposed to comment on it. But McCarthy is so scared of dead air that she blurts something out and throws it back to Michelle for the next story.

McCarthy does this thing, where they come back from commercial, she's lying on her back with the guest eating a lollipop asking creepy questions. At the end of the segment they pull back to reveal they were lying on the shag rug in the middle of the set.

McCarthy needs to trust herself and slow the fuck down.My message to Jenny,  "Let the show be, no need to scream. You're funny, relax, enjoy yourself."

Watch for yourself.

Leno Calls NBC Execs "Snake"

Leno is obviously pissed at the publicity that NBC will replace him with Fallon. This news should not be a shock to a guy who was replaced by the 12:35 guy just a few years ago. NBC needs to check their short term memory. Moving Leno out of 11:35 did not work. The ratings are not going to up if Leno leaves. Even though Fallon is a better fit for "The Tonight Show" than Conan was, it's still a new show. It is still something for people to get used to. Look at Kimmel. His ratings were fine at midnight, but didn't improve the 11:35 slot when he took over for "Nightline." In fact the numbers went down around 25% in the February sweeps from a year earlier when the news magazine was there. Obviously, Kimmel didn't improve the post local news spot, but ABC is banking their jobs and 401K that he eventually will. What's the over under that "Nightline" will be back by Fall?

Hot Tub Time Machine will follow the "Black guy in a movie" rule. In the movie a group of four guys, they have one black friend. Even though there's only one black guy, they have to make sure they are not a threat to the white man's masculinity  - like crazy hair or Martin Lawrence or gay. In this case he's overweight.

Then if they are straight, they are henpecked and have an overbearing wife they are afraid of. Check. We have that too.

Is Conan the Next Arsenio Hall?

The Wrap is reporting that syndication big wig is chasing after Coco. This would make tons of money for the misplaced host. But as Josef Adalian points out there's not a lot of room on the TV landscape for the major day parts.

Letterman tells Kirstie Alley he's sorry

Last Night, Letterman's guest was living fat joke Kirstie Alley. Although she is a fine actress and producer, comedians have focused on her weight as an easy punchline and shorthand.

Here's Letterman jumping on the band wagon a while ago...

Last night she was a guest on his show promoting her reality show about being fat, not to confused with her commercials or sitcom about being over weight. The host appologized to her. She had a great comeback and they went on to talk about food.

She's very funny. so it was fun to see him address it and then use it as jumping off point.
