Barbara is a Tool!
The writer's strike is the biggest story in Hollywood right now. Or really it should be but isn't. Entertainment Weekly has a story on the strike in every issue. The latest issue had four stories. But that's a magazine. The entertainment news programs, like Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood, barely talk about it. That's because those in charge of the shows are the opponents of the strikers. If I were them, I wouldn't give publicity to my enemy either.
Today Whoopie snuck the strike into Hot Topics since that was the reason a couple guests decided not to come on the show as scheduled. Whoopie and Joy talked about who is on strike and why and why that aren't and what guilds there are in and that they support the writers. Barbara said, "you are boring everyone," and they moved onto another topic. While it wasn't as captivating as the British septuagenarian women bonking young Kenyan men, it was still one of their best topics. I'm sure someone was yelling in Barbara's ear piece to get off the topic. She is such a tool.

E! True Hollywood Story
I was a little confused as why high profile murders and crimes outside of Hollywood get a True Hollywood Story. But these stories get so much press they become part of the collective entertainment for the country so I think they fit. Plus Scott Peterson is hot! Too bad he killed his wife.

Best Week Ever 11-16-07
Last Week Midget Mac from I Love New York 2 had the best week ever. Here's his audition video, I think:
And on 10/26, Newshunk Anderson Cooper had the best week ever.
Here's what Kathy Griffin thinks of Anderson Cooper:

Here's who I'd still like to see: Ned Betty, Gene Hackman, Susana York (Kryptonian mom from the movies), John Shea (Lex from L&C), Traci Scoggins (Kat from season 1 of L&C), and of course Teri Hatcher.
Soap: An Examination of the First Gay Sitcom Character
The clear breakaway character is Benson. As the dialog with and about Jodie was all gay, Benson being the only black character had lots of racially related jokes. He and Jodie were considered suspects in the murder of Spencer for Hire because they were black and gay, and no other reason, pointing out the absurdity in racial profiling long before that was even a word. After two seasons on Soap, Benson went onto to his own show for seven seasons.

Season 4 of Project Runway starts tonight. All day long Bravo is running last seasons episodes in a marathon. Back again are Heidi Klum and TV most eligible gay bachelor, Tim Gunn (Anderson Cooper has a partner). 15 new designers get their chance at fame. Heidi was on Ellen this week and she said it was going to be more of the same old shit with new faces. After The Amazing Race, this is my favorite reality show.

The Writer's Strike
What is the immediate result? All the daily shows are off the air for now. Ellen, The Daily Show, and The Tonight Show will be in repeats all week and presumably until the strike is over.
The result on the rest of the season will depend on how long the strike lasts. Ugly Betty and Heroes and all the others could have a shortened season. Shows through the end of the year are fine. If the strike continues into 2008, network television will start of grind to a halt. The only thing we could be seeing for a while is reality TV.
Who knows what will happen to LOST with it's scheduled 16 episode season. If they can't make all 16 will they add more episodes in the future? We will have to wait and see.

The fifth season of Nip/Tuck started this week on FX. I've decided to drop this show this season. I've enjoyed it from the beginning but it has certainly jump the shark. The JTS moment might have corresponded to the move from Miami to L.A. but I don't think that is the problem. The problem is the complete devolution of the supporting characters. Julia, Matt, and Kimber used to be interesting characters, but they have run their course. I don't need to see them ever again. I was very happy when she moved to New York last season with the two kids who are completely screwed up yet only to be disappointed to find out she is still a regular cast member. Matt and Kimber became scientologist last season and got pregnant. This season things are going a bit better for them as they become meth addicted drug addicts. I don't want to see any of them ever again. If the new season was just about Sean and Christian in L.A. with new friends and co-workers, I'd be back for more. Until they cast off the dead weight, the show is dead to me.
And what is with the promotional campaign for the fifth season? The clipped angel thing makes them looks like detectives, not doctors. I don't get it...but I love their outfits.
