An Albany area college student is competing on the Wheel of Fortune tonight!
I caught wind of this from a post by the Times Union, and of course now have to root for one of our own. Logan Stone, competing tonight on the Wheel of Fortune, is a junior at the University at Albany...
According to myfoxmemphis, Judge Joe Brown was arrested Monday on contempt of court charges. Judge Brown was at Shelby County Juvenile Court and he wanted to speak on behalf of a juvenile in a child support case. He was waiting for the court to bring the child’s documents...
Survey Says! Tomorrow night at 5 p.m. turn your televisions to 'Family Feud,' the long-time running family game show that requires its contestants to think on their feet. Two families compete on every show and tomorrow's episode will feature two people from Albany!
Although temperatures could get as high as 90 today, it was a brisk 52 when I sat on my porch with a cup of coffee at 6:00am this morning. It was a rude reminder that summer is on its way out and fall is moving in. Yes, it’s not summer, but there are very few things that suck about fall. Ya can’t beat jeans and hoody weather, football season, apple cider donuts and, of course, FALL TV!
We never really pegged Stephen Colbert as a hip hop fan, but none-the-less, it was nice to see the music genre represented with an appearance by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis on his popular Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report.
Hip-hop/pop dignitaries Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Questlove and will.i.am and will invade the small town of Stoolbend, Va., next fall on ‘The Cleveland Show.’ The group will appear on an episode titled ‘Menace II Secret Society,’ in which the five celebrities are supposedly part of the secretive “rap illuminati.”
For the superstars on ‘Duets,’ the challenge is not only finding someone with some singing chops, but also finding that person whose vocal and personal chemistry blends easily with theirs. Robin Thicke must have had his ears on during his auditions because he found an incomparable voice in Alexis Foster.
When it comes to business, I don’t think there’s a more accurate phrase than “sex sells”. Maybe not when it comes to conducting day to day operations but an appealing visual definitely makes a brand stand out.
On some days, CBS giveth and on other days, CBS taketh away. After ten seasons, ‘CSI: Miami,’ the first spin-off from the massively successful ’CSI’ franchise, has been cancelled. It leaves behind its parent show as well as its sister spin-off, ‘CSI: NY’ (which was quietly renewed). Its sudden departure leaves David Caruso’s career in critical condition.
Usher hit the stage of ‘Saturday Night Live’ on the second-to-last episode of the season last night (May 12). He was butter smooth, with his dance moves, his singing and his emoting. It was his third time taking the ‘SNL’ stage in his career, so at this point, he’s a vet!
Usher will hit the ‘Saturday Night Live’ stage for the third time as this week’s musical guest. He’ll be joined by ‘SNL’ alum Will Ferrell for the night’s host. Considering Ferrell is a comedic heavyweight, the promos for the episode are no less than hilarious.
Whitney Houston will be saluted at this year’s ‘VH1 Divas’ special, according to Billboard. The tribute show is scheduled to be taped in December in Los Angeles. Houston’s former musical director Rickey Minor will executive produced the event.
Nicki Minaj goes pop indeed — soda pop, that is — in her new Pepsi ad.
The clip, set to a remix of Minaj’s hit ‘Moment for Life,’ opens with a cute brunette couple popping open some cans of — what else? — Pepsi. The song choice was a deliberate one, because as soon as they start sipping, time stops. The duo takes advantage of this and goes on a global adventure.
Get ready to go pop Barbz! Soda pop, that is. Nicki Minaj‘s new commercial for Pepsi is set to premiere on Monday (May 7), according to reps for the soda giant (via AllHipHop.com). The ad, called ‘Now in the Moment,’ features a new remix of her anthemic hit ‘Moment 4 Life.’
Super Bowl-winning New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, and he’s off to a good start with a promo that spoofs ‘The Voice.’
Commercials may not be her thing, but perhaps television is. Mary J. Blige has signed on to be a judge on ‘Opening Act,’ a talent search-style reality TV show set to air on the E! network.
