Red Carpet Faux Pas

Every year, the Emmys disappoint. And I'm not even talking about the nominations or winners. I'm talking about the fashion. There's always some crazy people who think their big names afford them the right to look like expensive crap. I'd like to call them out, and ask a big, "What the hell were you thinking?"

Oh, my darling Ellen Pompeo, I love that you've allowed your emaciated body to swallow a couple of meals without puking them up again, but did you have to show off your new curves in this atrocious costume that would make even Prince have a bout of bulemia?

Cheryl Hines, your stylist called and wants his bedazzler back. I understand adding a few baubles to your gown, but seriously, excess is not your friend.

Listen here, Piv, only Hefner can pull off wearing that get-up during the day. I don't care that your first agent wanted you to become a fluffer. The skeezy look is not for you.

Arrested Development kids!!! I love you, you know I love you. But Alia Shawkat, the goth look is creepy. There's no way you can enter any Inner Beauty Pageants with that style...

I know I've been away but now I've come back to play! And I know the perfect game: Who's Your Daddy?

Guess who this up and coming singer-songwriter's dad is?

Weeds: Is that Smoke or Fire?

The second season of Weeds premiered last night on Showtime, and Nancy, my favorite pot-dealing momma is right where we left her last season. After sleeping with Peter, she realizes he's really part of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency). Um, woops. Nancy then stupidly tells Conrad about her mistake and he renegs on their new partnership. Puhlease, Conrad, anyone with half a brain knows you'll be back for more hurtin'. And if Nancy's bedroom follies aren't enough to get you hooked, this jam-packed episode also includes the love-sick puppy, Sanjay, burning down Nancy's bakery so she can collect the insurance money and a sideplot with Celia deciding to run against Doug for the city council seat. I personally can't wait to see the mud-slinging in local Agrestic politics. I have a feeling it'll be super ticky-tacky...

The Kumars at No. 42

Ever watched a show that is so outrageous, you can't help but wonder how it got greenlit? And then wondered how it became so successful? And then realized that you can't take your eyes off it? Well, that's me and the brassy British comedy, The Kumars at No. 42. The show is about a Anglo-Indian family that has turned their home into a TV talkshow set. The family does group interviews of their celebrity guests, with each family member playing off some Indian stereotype. The mom shoves mountains of food at every guest, and tries to get her son married off. The father is obsessed with money. But the show-stealer is grandma, a friendly woman with a very dirty mind and knack for the inappropriate. The season premiere aired on Friday on BBC America and David Hasselhoff was their first guest. To get a feel for the show, check out this Minnie Driver clip from last season.

Wentworth Miller is Always Hot!

So, in case you hadn't realized it, Wentworth Miller is not only one of the most attractive men I have ever seen (on TV), he is also on the cover of Details magazine this month. The man with the thousand-mile stare is just one of the small-screen stars photographed for the mag's fall TV issue out on newstands now. The issue also offers up pics of Matthew Perry and Aaron Sorkin, Hugh Laurie and Sandra Oh wearing, um, her birthday suit. See a few of them below and see the rest by clicking here.

'Desperate' for Season Two DVDs

Wisteria Lane was aglow with apples, press and of course, 'Housewives', Saturday night. The cast and crew of the popular ABC show gathered to celebrate the release of season 2 on DVD. Even though the Emmys didn't shower the show with praises this year, Eva Longoria told AP TV, "I'm so proud of this DVD because I think once you see it, you'll really realize how good Season Two was, instead of listening to, just, critics saying 'Oh, they're in a slump. Oh, it wasn't like last year."' To see full-size pics from the event, click on the thumbnail pictures below:


Kiele Sanchez Gets 'Lost'

Lost producers have just cast their latest castaway. Kiele Sanchez has earned the role of a very attractive, 20-something (is there any other kind?) on the hit ABC drama. The actress has been in several short-lived projects, including Married to the Kellys, and the recently defunct WB show, Related. Although producers won't discuss specifics of the character, Variety reports that Sanchez might be playing a love interest for Rodrigo Santoro's mystery man. With last season's multiple deaths, it's nice to see the island starting to become more populated...

Bid for a Role on Scrubs!!!

Wanna get a chance to sing with Donald Faison? Or the chance to tell Zach Braff that you're a "sensie" too? Well, if you bid for a walk-on role on Scrubs over at eBay, your dream could come true! The cast and crew have donated the role to help raise money for multiple sclerosis research. According to the eBay listing, the winning bidder "will go through wardrobe, receive a script and be placed in scenes with members of the cast." If you've got the extra cash, hurry over and bid. There's only 3 days left. And if you win, send me pictures from your day on set so I can be jealous all over again!


Free Shows are back for ABC

ABC will be airing free shows again on its online broadband player after what it says was a successful test run in May and and June. As part of its new offering, the network will offer more shows for a shorter period of time. In addition, there will be longer commercials.
In the player's initial run, ABC offered free viewings of episodes of Lost, Desperate Housewives, Alias and Commander in Chief. Lost was the most viewed program and will continue to be offered on the player. The most likely candidates to join Lost on the broadband player are some of ABC's new dramas and perhaps even a half-hour comedy.

Sign Over Your Paychecks

As if it isn't hard enough to scrape some money together for your favorite TV on DVD sets, the studios have decided to gouge our wallets completely with those Complete Series Collections. You know what I'm talking about! Those DVD sets that include extra bonus features that the individual season sets don't offer. The Alias Complete Series, which comes out November 21st, is offering a feature booklet and a bonus disc of goodies. Friends: The One with All Ten Seasons will include a 60-page commemorative book in addition to all the 236 episodes from 10 seasons. It is released on November 14th, less than a year after Warner Bros. released Season 10. The West Wing: The Complete Series, which comes out November 7th, will include the original pilot script and an introduction with Aaron Sorkin. So, what happens if you bought an individual set before the complete series was announced? Well, you have two options: be happy with what you got, or suck it up and fork over that hard-earned cash to those greedy studios...

Pilot/Series Orders

After a controversial departure from Gilmore Girls, Amy Sherman-Palladino is back with a new show. Fox has ordered her comedy pilot. The premise of the show is about two estranged sisters who come together after one agrees to carry the other's baby.

The CW is continuing its youth-skewing lineup with a reality series bluntly titled The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll. The search begins right away, with the winner joining the singing group. 'Dontcha' wish' you could enter?


Logan & Logan

Looks like Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls will be sharing more than a night on the CW come this fall! TV Guide's Ausiello is reporting that Matt Czuchry, who plays Logan Huntzberger on Gilmore Girls will be crossing over onto Veronica Mars to play Logan Echolls' half-brother, Charlie Stone!!!!! The episode he's in will air October 24th. Don't forget to set your Tivos, your DVRs, even your VCRs. And don't forget a box of Kleenex to wipe up the drool!


'PR' Nightmare

Tonight is the night! That much-touted ousting from Project Runway will finally air in all its bitchy glory. Between all the rumors flying across the Internet and Tim Gunn's stern disapproval in the previews, I am dying to know who is getting 'Auf'd' before he/she even hits the runway. Is it Keith for plagiarizing designs? Is it Vincent for harrassing someone? Is it Angela for sucking as a designer? Um, well, maybe not the last one. But still, she needs to be packed in a box of her own bubble skirts and sent home! Well, if you can't wait til tonight for some PR goodness, whet your appetites with a little preview.

Red Sox Love

Ah Red Sox, how does Ben Affleck love thee? Let me count the ways:

1. He spreads his Sox love like a contagious disease to all his leading ladies, including current wife, Jennifer Garner.

2. He buys expensive tickets and wears Sox paraphenalia all the time.

3. He'll try to help you cheat by trying to catch a foul ball before the opposing team can get it and take your hitter out. See below:


Happy Birthday, MTV!

It's quarter-life crisis time for MTV. The music network that no longer play music turns 25 years old today! From Madonna writhing on the floor to a bunch of 16 year-olds whining about having the best birthday ever, MTV has withstood the test of time in the cable landscape. To honor this life milestone, you can wax nostalgic with VH1 Classic, which is reairing MTV's first day of broadcast from 6 a.m.- midnight. Let me know if "Video Killed the Radio Star" still has that chill-inducing factor! And if that doesn't get you into the b-day mood, how about a little MTV trivia:

Who were the hosts of the first MTV Movie Awards?
